      I've read on a few websites about the benefits of pineapple. Can anyone here verify that it helps, and if it does, does it matter if you consume it? Can you get pineapple juice or do you have to get pineapple in a can or cut up a fresh one?

      Thank you!

      Fresh is best when it comes to any fruit or vegetable. I make smoothies daily with whatever bits and pieces I have left in the fridge.

      I cannot verify that pineapple helps, as I don't know of anything that really helps tinnitus whether it is dietary, supplementary, or even medicine. However, if pineapples do help, I am betting it is because of the bromelain content, which is mainly found in the core of the pineapple. Bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties. So I suppose if your tinnitus is caused by inflammation, that would help.

      But I would say you'd have to blend the core of the pineapple, because it's pretty tough. Usually if you buy pineapple in a can, it has been de-cored. So you'd probably have to buy a fresh, whole pineapple and make smoothies out of it, especially to include the core.

      Yeah, pineapple is a natural anti-inflammatory. So, ingesting it will possibly improve blood circulation ( in your head and neck for tinnitus relief ) and maybe reduce your tinnitus. I suppose, if you like pineapple, it wouldn't hurt to add it to your diet, as well as other anti-inflammatory food. I'd use fresh to avoid added sugars. (sugar being inflammatory)

      In that case then taking garlic supplements will help as well, I just started to take oderless garlic pills to see what it does, I eat lots of avocado since its got omegs three to help heart and circulation,, I also take pineapple, and any grape seeds help as well, I read all this in the internet, so I am experimenting, im going to a chiropractic when I get home from work since im in Louisiana, and Home is in Texas, then acupuncture, im gonna fix my neck muscles to see what happens,then treat my back muscles and finally my jaw, and I shall post how it went, wish me luck!

      I have a question. Can these anti inflamatory foods/fruits be used instead of oral steroids( which I suppose are also used to reduce the inflammation) . Does it have the same effect? Even though steroids may be more powerful and give quicker results. But I prefer the natural way so.

      No. steroids are way stronger and probably the effect is a bit different as well. Food only helps in long-term, therefore most likely you will never know whether it had an effect or not.

      My tinnitus is in acute stage. My first ENT prescribed oral steroids for 10 days one month ago. But when I took the second opinion, the other ENT recommended gingko+piracetam+vinpocetin for 10 days and then told me to continue for 10 more days.

      I am still inconclusive whether it's actually helping me or not as I feel it's still a little early to say. I have good and bad days. He doesn't think I have any inflammation(hit my head and got T). MRI was negative as well. But this ENT was reluctant to give me any medications from the beginning and just keeps telling me to ignore it. I insisted he gives me some medicines so he prescribed gingko. I doubt if he was serious when he said there is no inflammation.

      Should I give oral steroids a go ? I hope I am not wasting too much time as this is still in acute stage.

      Yes, take the oral steroids ASAP. The sooner they are used the better chance it has of working to reverse any damage. Ideally steroids should be taken immediately after the onset of any sort of damage to the ear, I'm talking 24-72 hours but I've read studies that cite that they are still effective weeks after. It's a worth a shot at least, IMO. Just be weary of the side effects, some people react worse than other - I've been on them a couple times now and the side effects weren't too bad, got a bit nervous and I was eating like a savage. I really enjoyed the eating part to be honest though, haha.
