    ARTHRITIS FolkCure WORKING for me!

    Last year discovered a "Baker's Cyst" in my right knee joint. BUMMER...caused by arthritis and limits mobility.

    Doctor put me on Celebrex for a few months and it was AMAZINGLY good. BUT the side effects can be really serious if taken for extended periods of time.

    I discovered the "Golden raisin soaked in gin" Folkcure and over the past two months I first gave up the Celebrex. Within 2 days the arthritis was so severe that I really considered going back on it. I wanted to really give the folkcure a try. Within 2 weeks the pain was reduced to a manageable level. After about a month the pain was 95% reduced with mobility improved about 75%.

    Now after about 2 months, pain has been reduced 98% and mobility improved about 85%.

    [I'm an ex-engineer and try for accuracy with my percentages. ]

    I soak the golden raisin's in a shallow bowl (just covered in gin) for about 5 to 7 days. Then place the raisins in a baggie in the fridge. Each breakfast I take 9 raisins with my meal.

    This has "appeared" to work for me and shouldn't have any negative consequences and I offer it as a try at your own risk basis. To me it has worked as GOOD as Celebrex (if not better!) but it took longer to work...AND so far so good.

    And BTW I don't drink.. (well..unless I'm forced to).

    I have degenerative arthiritis, tried celebrex as well as many others......nothing works. I may try your method for relief......but ommit the raisins

    Seriously, I hope it continues to help you, many of the side-effects of medications nowadays are worse than the actual problem.

    DrJoe,

    I've been doing the gin + raisins for several years now. I just fill a mason jar with the golden raisins, cover with the gin, and refridgerate. Take a spoonful every day. The only time it doesn't help me is when I forget to take them for weeks at a time

    Re: ARTHRITIS FolkCure WORKING for me!

    Thanks for the reminder! I had forgotten about this "cure". The caregiver who took care of my father-in-law highly believed in this. She had him taking this everyday...I remember him even saying "That Gail is trying to get me drunk". I do remember it has to be the golden raisins and gin. Refrigerated, but I don't remember if with the liquid in a spoon, or just the raisins by themselves

    Celebrix tears my stomach up, I've given that stuff up. Long hot soaks in tubs, and heat pads works & taking Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM daily seems to relieve my pains. I may start eating raisins daily now.

    Re: ARTHRITIS FolkCure WORKING for me!

    The Gin basically evaporates (in my version) and you wind up with plumper (but happy) raisins.

    I also have been taking the Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM daily for the last few years.

    The gin I used was the cheapest they had at Sam's Club...about $12 a bottle

    Re: ARTHRITIS FolkCure WORKING for me!

    Ok...........gotta tell this story....true as can be

    My parents were "tea totallers"............not a sip of alcohol.............of course, growing up in Oklahoma kind of "warped" the brain....ha/ha

    If you can imagine my surprise when I went back to Oklahoma to see my parents in 1999, and in the refrigerator was a plastic container of "gin and raisins". I didn't say anything to my parents. And then the next day I was in the car with my dad, and he stopped at the LIQUOR STORE..............OMG....I literally had to restart my heart. Anyway......without a word, my dad stopped the car, asked if I wanted to go into the....gulp....the LIQUOR STORE with him. Sure...........and I was trying desperately to take stock of my "inventory" hidden in my suitcase....gee, did I need some more scotch...or more bourbon? Maybe some more tequilla? So, I accompanied my dad in the ....gulp....LIQUOR STORE....and saw Dad buy some gin. Whooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaa. All the way home, I was silent about his LIQUOR STORE purchase. Finally, when we got home, Dad took the gin into the kitchen...fixed the gin and raisins..........................while I stood in absolute shock. I mean.....this is the man that literally tore me a "new one" when I came home drunk after my divorce. Suddenly....Dad called Mom into the kitchen and they proceeded to take their "prescription" of gin and raisins!!!!!!!

    Afterwards..............I had a great laugh............and.............a great cry...................because I finally realized that my parents were humans also. Dad told me that the gin and raisins were to help their arthritis..............................Dang, I sure wish I could have used that story back in college....LOL

    Take care and HH,

    Hey! Great Story.

    I never realized how widespread this "remedy" was! I heard it for the first time a few months ago on infomercial TV. I Googled the terms and researched all the positive testimonials and decided I might as well try..AND I'm pretty happy I did.

    My Dad (age 88 and NO arthritis) lives in Roanoke.. I see you are in Manassas..neat.

    Gonna give that Gin and Raisin method a try. The pain of Arthritis can be a bummer. Will use "Gordons" gin though, thats thought to be the best here in the UK. Not sure if you can get it in the US, would have thought so.

    I once went on a trip which included going round the Gordons Gin distilerry, it was very interesting. The main ingrediant is "Juniper Berries", maybe that could be the secret

    Re: ARTHRITIS FolkCure WORKING for me!

    I'm going to have to try this!

    Actually, for a while, even with Celebrex (later it was Bextra) I had friends that figured I was on a fast track to a wheelchair. But I found one other thing that helped me enormously - called "CMO" - it's one of those fatty acid things (not the omega-3 fish oil - but still..) I took that and glucosamine/chondroitin with the collagen and MSM. IF I have a "bad day" now, it's so much better than the best of my good days while taking the Celebrex etc.

    Thing is, I think the golden raisins thing is going to be a lot cheaper (and just maybe a lot more fun - ha!).

    Really glad you posted it - thanks!

    A secretary was visiting an Aunt in the desert and had told her that she suffered from piles...the Aunt mixed her a drink of Vodka and Sour kraut juice...its called a pile driver...

    After literally sitting on the porcelain throne for two days, she never had a recurrence of the roids after that...
