Life's about balance: Life is about balance. Do everything in moderation. Too much of a good thing can be bad. In other words, don't overdo the prune juice. If trying to treat constipation, a person needs to work with his doctor to find the cause of the constipation. After finding the cause, treatment can be done with several methods (several means not needing to overuse one method).
