Hadith regarding raisins being the cure for inferiority complex

Q: I read the following Hadith in a Tibb kitaab, however, the English translation of the last two words does not seem to be suitable. Please may the correct translation of the following be provided:

"Hazrat Ali (Radhiyallahu anhu) says that Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that those who take 21 raisins (الزبيب) daily will be free from all diseases which give rise to inferior complex. [Abu Nu-aim: 813]"

A: We have not come across this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
