Is pineapple juice safe with Barrett's. Although it is acidic it is supposed to become alkaline in the stomach. It helps me with regular Bowel movement?

You're fine: If it doesn't make you uncomfortable. I suspect you're reading too much folklore about "acid" and "alkaline" foods. There's very little science here. Pineapple actually contains a few proteases that may enhance digestion; if you find it helpful, I'm glad. Often just a few extra glasses of water daily can keep things regular as well. Best wishes. ...Read more

I took my birth control pill with a sip of pineapple juice today because I didn't have water. Is it okay, or will the pineapple juice effect my pill?

Okay: You'll be fine. The best information available suggests that, if anything, there would be a slight increase in your birth control pill's levels - and that's assuming pineapple juice were to behave like grapefruit juice, which there is no guarantee that it does. And with the sip you took, there is very little likelihood there would be that rise in levels anyway. I don't expect any difference. ...Read more
