...feeling afraid Jen @jen1984


Ok bought a beautiful pineapple. Peeled it and chopped it for juicing.
Made my hands itch like crazy!!! Does that mean I'm allergic? Not drinking it now...too scared!

Ah no Jen! Wise to give it a miss I think, you wouldnt want that itching sensation on the inside! Perhaps you could give the pineapple a break and then try again in a few days? If the same happens, maybe best to avoid!

Jen @jen1984

Yeah so strange. I did the same two weeks ago and no problem....
I think I will go for allergy testing

Michelle @mishlyn

That's a good idea Jen. Better to be safe than sorry indeed. Have you ever had a reaction eating it before? I should look into a test myself. Would be interested in seeing what it has to say!

Hi Jen I found that pineapple makes me itch as well. I don't even drink pineapple juice. Well. I don't drink any fruit juice as my skin flares up once I had some.

I think pineapple is the least important in my kombucha mix for curing psoriasis. Galangal, turmeric, and ginger are more anti-inflammatory and have the most impact on inhibiting NF-kB. Also, just FYI for those that may use pineapple, I don't peel it. I juice it all for maximum benefit. The skin is high in bromelains. I just scrub the surface with a brush and water to remove any fungicides or pesticides.

I think it's the acid. Same thing happens to me.
