Healing Properties of Fruits: Grapefruit

Grapefruit
Grapefruits have cooling thermal nature, sweet-and-sour flavor. It is popular for treating poor digestion, belching, and increases appetite during pregnancy. Grapefruit helps overcome alcohol intoxication. The juice, when combined with a tea of the pulp, will reduce fevers (simmer the pulp for 10 minutes in 6 ounces of water, then sip slowly the juice/tea combination and abstain from solid foods).

Grapefruit peel has warming power, a pungent, sweet, and bitter flavor. Like most citrus peel, it moves and regulates the spleen-pancreas digestive energy, and can be used to ease intestinal gas, pain, swelling, and promote peristalsis. It also helps resolve mucus conditions of the lungs and can treat lung blocking and coughs that have cold signs. The bioflavonoid activity of the peel in conjunction with its vitamin C is useful for strengthening the gums, the arteries, and overall circulation. To remove the properties of the peel, make a tea by simmering the fresh or dried peel for about 20 minutes. For frostbite, apply a squeeze of the room-temperature tea to help repair circulation to the damaged tissue.
