No. Natural remedies generally won't work on bacterial infections, despite all their bogus and unproven claims. Stick to scientifically proven medicine, not alternative medicine nonsense.

Real medical doctors have undergone years of studying biology, chemistry, physiology, pathology etc etc and respect science, experiment, evidence and clinical trials, whereas naturopaths, and other alternative medicine claimants, are not required to learn such knowledge, and instead rely on unverified anecdotes and hearsay.

Yes, you can do this at home. Buy your grapefruit, section it and store in a sealed jar of simple syrup.Simple syrup is just equal parts of sugar and water, brought to a boil until sugar dissolves.

This process works well with most all fruits.

How do you eat a grapefruit with a spoon?

I'd suggest gently inserting a SMALL spoon into the back end of the supreme (fancy for segment) and move the spoon back and forth, gingerly while working your way downward. You will have some squirting cause you're breaking the cells, but that's OK. Just work the spoon downward... And when you're all the way down, slowly and carefully scoop the fruit upward. You're gonna have some extra juice, and of course the ads won't show you this, but that's just the way it is. Enjoy!
