DEAR DR. GOTT: I often cut out your articles and save them. Unfortunately, I have misplaced one of the most important ones for my well-being. It concerned a natural recipe for bowel regularity. It contained three ingredients, two of which were applesauce and prune juice. The third component is as much a mystery as is the exact amount of each.
DEAR READER: The three ingredients, known as a colon cocktail, are applesauce, prune juice and unprocessed bran. Mix equal portions in a small bowl, and refrigerate for at least one hour to blend. Then take 1 to 2 tablespoons or more, if needed, each day for relief. Refrigerate any unused portions in a sealed container. The remedy may take up to two weeks to be fully effective.
