  1. History

  2. In the early 1990s, Paul Harvey, a popular radio personality, announced that the gin-and-raisin remedy freed him from arthritic pain and read the recipe to his listeners. The incident led to much interest from those suffering from knee pain and other arthritic ailments.

  4. Place one cup of golden raisins in a glass bowl. Add enough gin to cover the raisins, then cover the bowl with a cheesecloth for about one week to allow evaporation. After evaporation has taken place, cover the raisins and refrigerate them.

  5. Eat nine raisins daily. You can have them at any time during the day, but they are reported to be particularly tasty in morning cereal or oatmeal.

  6. According to anecdotal accounts, it takes up to six weeks to feel the effects of the remedy, so be patient. Unfortunately, the gin-and-raisin remedy does not work for everyone, and there's no definitive scientific study of why it works or why not.

  7. Warning

  8. It is not advisable to try the gin and raisin remedy if you are an alcoholic or suffer from gout or other illnesses that require abstinence from alcohol.
