I've got two bad knees...torn cartiledge in both...outside meniscus removed years ago...a nasty chain saw cut to the bottom of one. The pain got so bad, that I was unable to get down on the ground or back up again without holding on to something, or someone giving me a hand. Getting in and out of a boat was sheer torture...until a couple of months ago.

My wife is a nurse in an emergency clinic, and she was discussing my situation with one of the doctors who suggested I try an old folk remedy for joint pain...gin soaked raisins. I tried them, and after 5 or 6 weeks I was virtually pain free for the first time in years. Here's the recipe:

Take a box of golden raisins, (they must be the golden ones), and put them in a shallow container.
Cover the raisins with just enough gin to cover them and leave them uncovered.
After a week or so the gin will have been absorbed by the raisins, and the rest will have evaporated.
Eat 9 or 10 of the raisins every day.

The gin and raisins produce a high level of anti-oxidants and anti-inflamitants to help reduce joint pain.

I hope it helps you, as much as it did me. Good luck.

Well Mike, this wasn't in the joke thread, so I'll try it. The gin would work without the raisins, but not for long. :lol:

Not a joke at all. It really helped me a lot. I told my sister about it, and she experienced relief after about 4 weeks.
