My wife and I tried your golden raisins and gin for arthritis and we were unimpressed. We have discovered something else, though.Take two teaspoons of Certo dissolved in three ounces of grape juice. Do this three times a day. We have been told to cut back to one teaspoon of Certo in grape juice twice a day after the joints quit aching.We buy Certo in the grocery store near the canning jars. It's simple and cheap and seems to be helping.I am on Coumadin so I can't take anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil or Aleve.

My father and uncle both have diabetes. I would like to reduce my risk of developing this disease, and I've heard that drinking coffee can help. Is there any evidence behind this claim? There are several epidemiological studies that have demonstrated an association between regular coffee consumption and a reduced risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (Diabetes Care, February 2006). Do not count on coffee alone to protect you, however. Regular exercise and weight control are far more likely to be helpful in preventing Type 2 diabetes.

Q.Are there any natural herbs or foods that would have the same effect as Viagra? I am 60 and sometimes have a problem maintaining an erection. I think the trouble is due mostly to the long hours and pressures associated with owning a business.A.Before there was Viagra, there was yohimbine. This natural product from the bark of an African tree had a reputation as an aphrodisiac. Scientific studies support some benefit, not in stimulating desire, but in helping impotent men achieve and maintain erections.

Summer gardens provide the main ingredients -- tomatoes and peppers -- for these recipes.Lisa Ayris of Baltimore requested a red-pepper jelly "which you eat with cream cheese on crackers," she wrote.Carl J. Baker of Walla Walla, Wash., answered the request, declaring he craves red bell-pepper jelly on a bagel with cream cheese. "I have a friend in Billings, Mont., who sent me a jar of this jelly for Christmas, but she would not give out her recipe. So I wrote to the MCP Pectin Co. and received from them a recipe, which is good for green or red bell peppers, pimento and even the red chilies and jalapenos."

EASTER IS SUCH a money-grubbing business these days that the message, "He has risen," is buried in the artificial grass. Everywhere you turn are bunnies, chicks, eggs and candy in every size, color and wrapping imaginable. Mass-produced bunnies dyed pastel pink or powder blue, with floppy or upright ears, spill out of every nook and cranny at your local store You can buy a palm-sized, yellow fuzzy chick that chirps or an oversized stuffed duckling with an orange platypus-like beak. Let's not stop at stuffed though: If an animated "toy" suits your fancy, visit your local pet shop.

Q. Thank you for writing about Certo and grape juice. I was having excruciating pain in the metatarsal area of my foot, which caused me great difficulty walking. After two weeks of using Certo and grape juice as you described, my feet are free of pain. Why isn't this remedy more widely known? A. So far as we know, no research has been done to determine the effectiveness of grape juice and Certo (plant pectin used for making jelly) for joint pain. This remedy goes back at least to the 1940s, and we have heard from many people like you who have had success with it: "My hands used to be stiff when I'd get up in the morning, so I tried the Certo and grape juice.
