A Pleasant Parcel of Drink Pure Wine Wands

A parcel landed on my doorstep, and I glanced at the address. Could this be the parcel from Drink Pure Wine? Yes it was, and I couldn’t be more delighted to receive not just one, but a few boxes of Drink Pure Wine wands!

I had been browsing Drink Pure Wine’s website for some time before I had approached David, the founder of the product, to see if we could work together. You could say that I was elated when he replied, and we had a nice chat over Skype. As a chemist, he shared his passion about chemistry, wines, the myth of the Asian flush, grapes and more. An interesting lesson, you could say 😉

My Drink Pure Wine Review: A Revolutionary Product for Those with Chronic Illness

Could I finally enjoy a glass of wine, without the potential side effects triggered by chronic illness? Drinking alcohol usually goes two ways for me. Either I enjoy the nice woozy effects without much pain, or I become unwell, but not in the sense of a hangover. More like a sickened feeling from having drank poison.

I had read many positive Drink Pure Wine reviews from people who suffer from migraine disorder. Wines contain histamines and sulfites, which are potential triggers for migraine pain flares.

It’s a little different for me. I usually get inflammatory pains from Lupus and Sjögren’s instead, whenever I consume alcohol. They manifest as achy joints, and painful red bumps on my forehead and skull from swollen blood vessels. I wasn’t sure if these wine wands would be useful for such types of inflammatory pains, too.

Drink Pure Wine Review Round 1: Steak & Wine for Dinner at Home

We were, quite coincidently, cooking steak for dinner that evening. What better way to test the product there and then, than to open a bottle of red wine, right? All in the safety of home, too 😉

The instructions were simple enough, as I stirred the wine wand in my glass. I did notice the nice, buzzy effect that alcohol gives, but without the poisoned feeling this time. I was however, already rather achy that day, so it was difficult to say how well the wine wands had worked.

Drink Pure Wine Review Round 2: Board Games & Drinks Night at a Friend’s

So that coming weekend, I packed the wine wands into my bag as we trotted off for a board game night at a friend’s place. I had to test them out again, of course. Wine aside, I was a little worried, as those of us with chronic illness tend to be when there is a need to socialise. I always save all my energy, and schedule rest time in before and after. This helps to mitigate some of the stress, and the potential of pain flares that usually follow.

When we arrived, wine bottles were already on the table, paired with good chips, olives, ham, cottage cheese and homemade pies. A feast, to say the least!

Testing the Wine Wands at an Actual Social Event

I poured myself a glass of red wine, enough to cover the filter of the Drink Pure Wine wand. I swirled it, and left it in the glass for a little over the recommended three minutes, before removing it to take a sip.

We chatted about our lives, and I consumed half a glass whilst doing so. So far so good; I started to feel nice and warm, but without any extra pain. Another friend arrived, and we soon started the board game fun. My usual aches and pains set in, but ones that I were familiar with. This always happens when I stay out late or spend energy socialising.

Yet I noticed that my ‘alcohol triggered head pains’ were actually non-existent. This was exciting for me, as I celebrated quietly in my heart. I managed to stay for a few more hours than usual, and even had a lot of fun laughing, playing and bonding!

The Morning After Wine Night

I needed help to get into bed when I got home that night. But it was from the usual fatigue and full body aches, from having overdrawn from my energy account. I had already given myself permission for full rest and recovery the day after, for some peace of mind.

But to my surprise, I actually woke up feeling not just okay-ish, but good! Living with chronic pain is like a box of bad chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get when you wake. I would even go so far as to rate it as one of the best days I’ve had in months, and I couldn’t believe that it was right after a high energy burning night. I am definitely not saying the wine wands were the main source of this good day, but they did contribute to it!

I was in awe the entire day, and kept poking and testing various body parts just to check if it was real. I mean, I am so often in pain, whether mild or severe, that to feel almost no pain is akin to a miracle. Is this what ‘almost healthy’ feels like? It felt incredible, unbelievable. In fact, I felt so good that I even suggested that we go out for more social activities, which is near unheard of. I am usually the one tampering them down.

So off we trotted to a nice Japanese-French café for some good cake, amazing hot chocolate, and good books. After which we watched Akahige (or half of it, because it’s 3.5 hours long), with some good sushi at home. I was actually in the mood for both activities, and was glad that I could enjoy this gift of a rare, god-sent day.

I’m Definitely Adding Drink Pure Wine Wands to My Chronic Illness Toolbox

I will definitely be keeping my Drink Pure Wine wands close at hand whenever there’s wine involved! I can’t drink much due to blood thinning medications I take for Antiphospholipid Syndrome (a blood clotting disorder). But the occasional glass or two is fine, and these are when the wine wands will come in handy. It really is quite nice to converse with a friend slowly, over a glass of good wine.

These wine wands also work with white wine, and other fermented drinks such as beer. I will of course, have to test those out next 😉 You can also check out Drink Pure Wine’s FAQ page for more information on how it all works. Cheers!

I’m definitely going to order this (Sjorgren’s sufferer here). Does it alter the taste of the wine in any way? I apologize if that’s already been asked and answered; I may have missed it.

These wands sound like magic. I know I can’t drink red wine because the tannins affect me. I wonder if the wands could help.

I don’t suffer from chronic illness, but this is how I normally wake up the next day after just a half glass of wine. Alcohol and I just don’t mix. Perhaps it’s because I have maybe a half glass of wine once a year or so. LOL. Glad to know you didn’t have the normal side effects the day after.

I have written about this for migraines and I have to say they really do work… and it is pretty awesome really! I do enjoy white wines and paler wines… but just could never have them. Massive, massive trigger for me. But I tried it on a white and a red and No issues at al.

I had to stop drinking red wine due to migraines. I wonder if this would be ok. It’s always so exciting to read of new products like this.

Definitely. A little bit of normality can make a difference.

Wow, I cannot imagine going through this type of pain and having to give up so many things that you really enjoy. I am so glad you are sharing ways people can learn to live with pain and even thrive. Thank you so much for your honest sharing.

Thats a cool review. I am not a big fan of wine somehow. If compared I like white wine better, it rolls up well inside my mouth.

I would love to try that wine. It seems very different from the rest. I will pick up some when I pay a visit to the supermarket.

I wonder if it will work for me. I’m not really a wine lover but I do have pains from previous accident. Would love to try things that doesn’t involve swallowing pills or with less side effects.

Would love to give this a go in a few months when I’m all recovered from giving birth. Though not a huge wine fan, this one sounds really promising and worth a try.

I would like to try this wine. I have diabetes, so I can’t drink any kind of wine because my sugar levels are going up. I love wine. That is my weakness. So I would love to try this.

The first place I saw them was on Amazon. This was a year ago or something. I didn’t get them then, but I think I’m going to get some and give it a try.

This is a product I had checked into a year ago. It sounded fairly unbelievable. So, hearing you actually gave it a good try and found it helpful is encouraging. I can have one glass but even then I tend to get a weird headache and hands and feet noticeably swollen. If I have more, I get that poisened ill feeling. Problem is, I love wine. So tired of having to give up everything.

I tried it with Pino Grigio and it literally tasted “cleaner”.
