How much prune juice to drink for constipation?

How much prune juice to drink for constipation?

How long?: Prune juice is a New Orleans remedy, that also when I can't find a stomach doctor, to assist my patient. I always thought 6 to 8 oz, to be enough. The reason I am answering this question without knowing the answer is, Many a times I had to beg, with folded hands to my patients not to report me to Licensing Board because C got to D. In California, there are other exotic treatments. See your MD. ...Read more

How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

How much prune juice will help relive my constipation?

May or may not help: Prunes/juice can help, but it does not work for everyone. I have never seen or heard of prune-overdose, so enjoy as many as you wish. If not better in 2-3 days, try miralax, (polyethylene glycol) fibercon, senokot-s, colace, Metamucil etc... For quicker relief, enema may help. Occasional use of milk-of-magnesia or mag-citrate for really-backed-up cases. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Can to much apple juice constipate you?

Yes: If you are not consuming food with fibre with most of your calories from the juice, the answer is yet. On the other hand, if you are 114 years old, you are certainly more prone to have constipation even with the proper diet. If you can live to 114 and the only complaint is constipation, this proves the saying that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". By the way, fiber and exercise=more BM ...Read more

Really bad constipation! doc said miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily, can I try miralax (polyethylene glycol) mixed in prune juice for better results since prune juice didn't help by itself?

Really bad constipation! doc said miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily, can I try miralax (polyethylene glycol) mixed in prune juice for better results since prune juice didn't help by itself?

Yes, however...: It is wise to treat constipation and MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) may help; it is safe to take with prune juice. But this does not address the cause; eat more fiber, drink more water, exercise, try probiotics, get tested for hypothyroidism. I advise you try triphala, an ayurvedic formula that has many health benefits ; better addresses the cause: http://www.Planetherbs.Com/specific-herbs/the-wonders-of-triphala.Html. ...Read more

Is prune juice better than most laxatives?

Is prune juice better than most laxatives?

It works well: I don't know if prune juice has been compared "head to head" with other laxatives, but it works well. One time i prescribed 2 ounces / day for a patient that was constipated, and within a week the nursing home called back and asked if i could reduce the dose because it was working too well. Now, it doesn't always work, but it surely is a simple thing to try. ...Read more

How much juice should kids drink?

How much juice should kids drink?

None: The advertizing media would have you believe they can make your child super with a box of juice in their lunch or a superviatmin blend to bypass that pesky vegatable phobia. Garbage.The best nutrition from an orange comes from eating the real thing & the same goes for the rest. I liken juice intake to feeding them soda. The sugar content is similar and just as likely to add fluff to their tummy. ...Read more
