How to Make Home Remedy: Drunken Raisins for Pain


  1. Place golden raisins in a canning jar and fill with gin up to 1" over the raisins. Cover loosely with a non-metallic cover that will allow evaporation. Stir every day until you have raisins coated with a thick syrup, about one to four weeks depending on surrounding temperature and humidity. Always keep a batch ahead in the pantry.

    It is VERY important to use a quality gin that states on the bottle it has been distilled with juniper berries or extract.
  2. This remedy has been used to help reduce inflammation and pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, etc. The recommended dosage has always been 9 raisins/day or one spoonful. After you begin to take the soaked raisins, you then may have to wait about 2 weeks for the full effect. But after that, the spoonful must be taken habitually on a daily basis. If you do not feel a reduction in discomfort, try taking 1 spoonful in the morning and 1 at night.
