Is the raisin and vodka cure a serious thing?

The yellow raisin. With gin cure as purported by dr. Oz is reported to work due to a number of chemicals in gin. I have not seen any research which supports the contention that this reduces arthritis pain.
I'VE TRIED IT. And i'm still short and have a belly. Seriously, no studies have proven the validity nor efficacy of this in controlled, scientific fashion.
