  1. 0
    Hello ya'll! I'm at work right now and could use some help. I have a pt who has not had a "good" BM in about a week. I remember reading on here someone's recipe for something to help with that. If I recall it has prune juice and sprite and soemthing else in it. Does anybody know what it is? 'Cause I think it would be really helpful to my pt. thanks!

    why the sprite?
  6. 0
    1 cup all bran
    1 cup applesauce
    1/2 cup prune juice
    Cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste... Mix it up, put it in the refrigerator. I makes a kind of pudding. We used to give a med cup of it for each patient daily.
    Hope this helps.

    half prune juice and half 7-up warmed, is an old recipe good for gas and bm, guess sprite would probably be the same difference

    :smilecoffeecup: We used to warm up 4 oz prune juice, put in 1/2-1 teas lemon juice and sugar to sweeten to taste. If my memory serves me right it worked EVERY time! (Postpartum moms, anyway!)

    We used to use warm prune juice and MOM mixed. Tastes bad but works well.
