Pineapple bark good for the back?

My mom heard from her employee that drinking the water from a boiled pineapple bark can help strengthen one’s back. Not for me but for my husband who frequently pulls his back out.

He pulled it years ago when he was at the gym. He saw a hot white chick passing by and wanting to impress her, pumped some ambitious iron. I asked if he at least got her number. “No.” Did she even notice you? … “No.” He probably got a pity glance as he yelped in pain.

But anyways, now I am stuck with his weak back and he pulls it at least once a week. He pulls it with the most mundane of tasks too. E.g. Bending down to pick up a dropped pen. That’s how bad it is. So before racking up some serious medical bills, I’m going to try this out.

I told my husband about this homeopathic remedy and he said, “Ew.” I said, “You’re going to drink this bark water!!!” He said, “Ok, wonderful wife.” That’s what I thought.  😉

All you  have to do is boil down the pineapple bark on low for a few hours. Throw the bark out, keep the water refrigerated and drink it throughout the day.


Is it strange to have broken down a pineapple for the first time at the tender age of 28? 😀  Super easy by the way.



Can’t wait to dig into the actual pineapple tomorrow morning for breakfasts. I’ll let you guys know if this works. Crossing fingers.

  1. first of all, PINEAPPLLEEEEE!!!! Ahem, okay got that out of my system. 😀
    Girrrllll I totally feel ya on the pain that back pain can be. Greg has been struggling with it the past few days because of sitting too long for work, and it definitely came from an accident that he had years and years ago. 😦 I’m all about home remedies first, and if all else fails, then western medicine. Hope Paul feels better soon~at least just a little bit, because it sounds excruciating. Hope you’re well too, Lisa!


    1. hahahah! 😀

      Alas, he doesn’t like the pineapple bark water. It’s just sitting in the fridge. Bleh. It tasted and smelled like sweet potatoes though so it wasn’t so bad. I’ll get him to drink it eventually.

      I’m doing great, thank you. I hope you are too! Btw, I was wondering if you had or are planning to have Selah baptized? I want to have Kyle baptized sooner than later but just don’t know how to go about it.


  2. my mom cuts pineapple diagonally so you dont have the “eyes” of the pineapple.

    you could sweeten the water with sugarcane/iced tea!
