I got poked in the ankle by a pineapple plant spine by accident once. I had varicose veins on my left ankle at the time. In a week, the puncture wound
healed- and my varicose veins were gone. It hurt so bad, though, I still have varicose veins on my right ankle. I was not willing to 'intentionally'
inflict the 'treatment' on my other leg!
Forget extract or canned pineapple. Get a fresh one, ripen it on the windowsill, and eat it fresh. Or as fresh-whipped Pina Coladas.
Good Mexican medicine.
