  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?
  5. 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!)
