Also once you actually feel the gas pass (and that is a HUGE step), you must rieducate yourself on how to hold it in. This may sound ridiculous but we have lost the cabability to identify the right moment. You can try this excercise to start "feeling" the hole close again. Lay on you bed on the side, and take deep and long breaths as if you are smelling up a rose or mountain breeze. Do this for about five minutes, to get muscle relaxation. If you happen to have some air showing up and you can feel it coming, simply try to ignore it like it's not there at all. Keep completely relaxed and do not move anything down there. Anything. Once out of three times, the inner automatic spincter would wake up and hold it by itself. Gas usually is supposed to be stopped when it is almost out, but us (the ones that have already upgraded from not being aware of gas to feeling it pass) believe we have to stop it before it even reaches the bottom.. so we try to stop it with the wrong coordination. If you try this, you may experience the 'inner sphincter automatic lock' .. it does indeed block gas and pulls the whole pelvic floor up. It is actually pretty amazing and you can't miss it if it happens. I cried the first time . I believe this is what normal people experience when they hold in some wind. This can be achieved with, as I said before, muscle growing and this kind of relaxation. You can also do it standing, you completely ignore the feeling of gas coming down ... once every three times you will manage (when you don't is just because your brain is trained to act way before it's necessary and you are not completely relaxed) and it will catch it up on its own.
Also, when actively squeezing ... do you know you are not supposed to squeeze both buttcheeks together but just one? These are all things we forgot to do that put together bring up this nonsense disease.
