Home Remedies

For joint pain and inflammation:

In 8×8 pyrex brownie pan, add box of golden raisins, cover with 750 ml gin. Do not use the cheap gin – most people use Gordon’s or Tanqueray.  The anti inflammatory ingredient is juniper berries, and cheaper jin uses an extract instead of the actual berries, so the remedy won’t work. Let sit until gin is absorbed by the raisins (at least a week).  Take remaining raisins and liquid, bottle and fridge. Have 9 every day. It will take about 2 mo for the pain to go away.

1 c hot water
1 tea bag
1 tbsp honey
2 oz whiskey
1 tsp lemon juice
