: : Has anybody had any good results taking raisins soaked in gin to relieve arthritic pain.
: : Is this just hype or does it work? If so what is the procedure for preparing this remedy?
: : How much and how often is it taken?
: I was thumbing through a health book at Borders one day and found a blurp about raisins and gin for arthritis and for those little pieces of skin that are connected with a thread like piece of skin. I don't remember what they're called, but the gin remedy is supposed to cause them to drop off.
The book said to soak golden raisins in gin, just enough to cover them. When the gin has soaked in and evaporated, you eat 9 (nine) raisins a day for a week (I think) or maybe two.
Some people have had good luck with this remedy for both arthritis and skin things, and some have not.
