09/28/2011: Phil from Pittsburgh,pa, Pa/usa: "I was out mowing the lawn three days ago and I just got stung by two bees or wasps. I got stung on my right arm and also on my left ear. there were no stingers present, but there was pain and itching. There was a slight rash on my right arm but I treated it with baking soda and the itch is gone.
But two days after I was stung, I felt a slight lump on the right side of my neck. It's painless, but I was wondering if it is a swollen lymph node or just a reaction from the stings. After reading the posts on this site on swollen lymph nodes, I just started taking apple cider vinegar. I wonder if it is going to work or should do something else with it?"
[YEA] 05/26/2011: Suzanne from Quebec, Canada: "I have had a serious case of caseous tonsillitis for the last 8 months and have one particularly painful swollen lymph node on the side of the neck which is most affected. I tried Ted's remedy two night in a row with wonderful results. After about 45 minutes of discomfort and swelling, two bacterial sacks broke the first night and one on the second night (this evening). Thank you Ted! I was getting desperate, but have hopes that I may be able to get rid of the infection using your remedy. I'll keep you posted. Suzanne"Replies
10/26/2011: Amanda from Tucson, Az replies: "This sounds like me. I have had tonsilitis since I got mono which was about a year ago, and now I have a swollen lymph node on one side that wont go away! The drs are telling me I need to go to the hospital and possibly have my tonsils removed. I really hope this Apple Cider Vinegar thing helps for me cuz that doesn't sound like fun."
10/13/2009: Dave from Philadelphia, Pa: "I noticed I didn't start having swollen glands or sinus infections until I had my wisdom teeth pulled out. Did anyone else notice this? Would there be any connection?"Replies
05/23/2010: Josh from Washington Dc, Washington Dc replies: "In responce to the person who had sinus infections only after he got her wisdom teeth pulled.... The same thing happened to my best friend she got her wisdom teeth removed and the root was so long that before the surgery, it was the root of the tooth that blocked the sinus cavity off. Once the tooth was removed the cavity was no longer blocked and was susceptable to infection."
05/14/2011: Ann from Akron, Oh replies: "I too had a wisdom tooth pulled. It was impacted and then I got what they call a dry socket. Due to many infections, they cauterized it and I still have problems. For many reasons, I have lost faith in physicians and instead always now look for a natural cure if possible. But, I truly believe this was all caused by that wisdom tooth. Right now, the gland is swollen and even my cheek is swollen on that side. This is the worst I have had it so I am search for "natural cures"."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 09/28/2009: Sondra from North Mankato, Minnesota: "Swollen Lymph Nodes
I was diagnosed with Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma back in May 2009 after a doctor found a enlarged lymph node in my right armpit and did a biopsy. I went through 3 different types of chemotherapy treatments and did not respond to any of the treatments, however, my body became more and more toxic due to the chemotherapy drugs I was given. In the mean time my lymph nodes in my neck, armpits, and groin area continued to get larger and larger. I had read an article on Hydrogen Peroxide in a book that I had purchased and I decided to try their recommendation. After 5 days of taking 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide with distilled water I started seeing a decrease in the size of my lymph nodes. I started taking this mixture the latter part of August 2009 and have continued to take it and currently my lymph nodes are still decreasing. I am wondering now if I really do have cancer or if I had a infection to cause my lymph nodes to swell? Sondra"Replies
09/29/2009: Tavora from Brooklyn, Ny replies: "Sondra - you should also consider supplementing your H2O2 therapy w/ the lemon (or) lime baking soda mixture. It helps to alkalize the system quickly and aids in cleaning out the nodes. Though I'm not a fan of drinking it - it does work. I have had slightly enlarged nodes for almost a year now (submandibular and around the base of neck and ear) and have been able to keep them at bay (until I get more solid answers) by either rebounding (mini-trampoline) and/or eating more raw foods. I never heard of rebounding until several months ago but it is superb for cleaning out the lymphatic system! Since the lymph system has no internal pumping mechanism like the heart - it has to be "moved" or drained out with the assistance of exercise. The up/down motion of jumping on the trampoline allows for the valves in the system to open up - which in turn allows for the fluid (or lymph) to be shaken up and "ushered" out towards the kidneys where it will be disposed of through the urine. You should consider it...I think it will be very effective in helping to cleanse, strenghthen and heal your body/immune system.....
You are in my prayers....."
02/04/2010: Dolphy from Johannesburg (south Africa), South Africa replies: "I tested hiv in 2006 October and in november i started developing Lymph nodes, the clinics say that they are unable to help reduce the swelling yet they havent tried any treatment...this is really affecting my social life please help me"
02/14/2010: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Dolphy from Johannesburg,
Do some research on Urine therapy. In the book "Your Own Perfect Medicine" there was alleged cures of multiple problems, including AIDS. It won't hurt anything to paint the skin over the swollen glands with iodine (or SSKI or Lugol's solution, both of which are potassium iodide solutions). It also won't hurt to take L-lysine & vitamin C 1 gram of each every hour while awake (up to l0 grams per day)."
09/27/2011: Peggy from St. John, Canada replies: "I have swollen lymph nodes on my neck due to sarcoidosis. I am doing a candida cleanse, but still find they are swollen. Any advice as to what could work here. It's going on 2 years with this."
[YEA] 11/22/2009: Mia from Vancouver, British Columbia: "In late July 2009 @ age 64 I began generously & daily painting my nine lymph nodes with iodine soaked qtip in all four quadrants of my body, covering them with 7% iodine as an experimental treatment for newly diagnosed Stage III non Hodgkins lymphoma (indolent) & the enlarged lymph nodes that go with the territory. I have had NO orthodox cancer treatment, NO invasive diagnosis, just blood tests & ultra sound, no enlarged liver or spleen. Flow cytometry determined the genetic markers for the type of cancer. ALL nodes, regardless of original size, have shrunk by approximately 3/4 of each original size in a four month period. All have stopped feeling "rooted" and are now moveable. I really like thinking of cancer as an infection that is beatable. This lymph node reversal & shrinkage seems to fit with certain iodine 4 health innovative theories I found out there, particularly about the suspected fungal/viral/bacterial nature of cancer. The oncologist is mute, albeit professionally non committal, but clearly stumped. Alternative TCM doc is delighted, fascinated. About to get updated blood panel done. Will keep anyone interested posted. P.S. Admittedly, much more recently "raw family" type green smoothies, Fl-essence anti cancer tea, became part of this program, along with daily ACV, mega green tea caps, selenium, Vit E, & multi enzymes, like serapeptase, etc., plus rebounder, all said to assist cancer cell death. However, node shrinkage was radical before I did much else. I feel & look better than I have in MANY years. ENERGY TO SPARE. "Replies
11/23/2009: Merryanne from Orange City, Florida, USA replies: "Mia, That is a wonderful report, I would love more detail, what iodine did you use, do you continually feel stronger, are you sleeping better, can you tell if the iodine has changed anything else in your body or emotions. I will be doing a post myself in a day or so for a 'yea' for Logol's iodine. Merryanne in Fl"
11/23/2009: Rob from Manhattan, New York replies: "Thanks Mia, for your thorough post! Interesting & hopeful. When you say four quadrants is that both sides of the neck (behind the ears) and groin area?"
11/24/2009: Mia Nony from Vancouver, B.c., Canada replies: "Dear Maryanne & Rob:
First, send for undiluted 5% strength lugol's from Kripps Pharmacy or Finlandia, both in Vancouver, Canada, I researched this in depth. I checked & iodine has been diluted down to almost useless everywhere. Not a profit maker. I surmise cheap cures for cancer are a major threat 2 the billion dollar "industry". Iodine was long called the miracle cure, 19th century doctors knew this well. If you are a research nut like me go to iodine 4 health dot com. If I support my thyroid master gland, my mood lifts markedly as my hormones balance out. Sleep? I remember nothing til morning. The rebounder offers exercise. More important its G-force releases white cells. Lymph nodes are one way straws minus a pump, there to protect us by containing debris & other threats. There are even "sentinel" lymph nodes. This is why I said NO to slice-&-dice diagnosis & radiation, unintentionally thwarting the oncologist. Rebounders release many white cell soldiers to fight back everywhere, partnering w/ iodine. We all need a bit of exercise (least perceived effort, most gain is elliptical) to be fair to ourselves. If you suspect or blood tests reveal your nodes are indolent (silent) lymphoma, it is easy to stage cancer non invasively by palpating by how many quadrants have enlarged nodes. Quadrants are divided by the 2 areas above & below the diaphragm & by right & left sides of the body's centre meridian. I have shrunk nodes on both sides of the neck, groin, rib cage, armpits. Cancer is just like a septic tank! It thrives in an acidic environment, w/ no oxygen & feeds exclusively on fast sugars. If you oxygenate, cut out ALL sugar, ALL ASPARTAME, all toxins, & alkalinize, you starve cancer to death, (poor thing). Multi enzymes, mega strength ECGC green tea caps of any brand, grapeseed extract cause rapid cancer cell death, as does selenium, Vit E, which work synergistically together. Side benefits of the iodine (& smoothies diet) & the rest? Lost 27 lbs in 3.5 months & now my face complexion is excellent instead of pale! Shoot, I am wearing clothes that have come full circle & are now back in style from 20 years ago! I am winning this war, & so can you."
09/30/2010: San from Tampa, Fl replies: "I just wanted to say that what you are doing is very similar to my chosen method of killing my cancer. I had breast cancer in one breast, had it removed and have been doing treatment with supplements and nutrition only. No chemo or radiation at all and I'm feeling and looking great, 4 months now after initial surgery. Am interested to hear more about what you take and would love to share what I am taking. Iodine (sea kelp) is one of them."
12/06/2010: Bella Jones from San Diego, Ca replies: "Hi Mia,
Question, did you drink the Iodine, or paint on your lymph nodes? I've been drinking it and feeling better... It's been a month but I don't see much improvement. Was dx with CLL about two months ago.... I asked Santa for a rebounder for Christmas. Thanks, Chris"
12/14/2011: Kat from Campbell River, Bc, Canada replies: "I am so glad to have found this site, I had a lumpectomy done in May, a large cancerous lump was removed. I also did not do treatments and rely on nature as much as I can, I have developed a sudden large hard moveable lump in my armpit, same side left breast. I am so glad to have finally found someone I can talk with with the same values, I also live in bc, on vancovuer Island. I have been searching the internet for ladies in my shoes and avoiding chemo and radiation, thank goodness for this site.
I just had a ultra sound done should have the results back thrusday, finding a Dr who will perform blood work and added tests is not easy, they are trained to think allopathic. I feel all alone also very careful who I talk with about my choices. I am hoping for the best, also have a rebounder and do have to get busy daily, I was running 2k per day and that seems to bring the life back and happy feeling. I have iodine was not aware you could drink this with water- thanks. Also the hydrogen proxide story, where do you get 35% food grade from, I have been doing the baking soda and sea salt as well as ACV just have to be really religious with all the treatments. I also see a TCM and get remedies, so I am really trying to do whatever works on a natural level. I find myself thinking about this all the time. The only time I can let go is when I am busy with grandchildren or running.
I am 54, married, 4 children and 3 grandchildren , so much to live for... I just don't want to become sick for the allopathic treatments, my saying is I have two legs and a heartbeat, I can either get on with living or dying. I chose the living, I am so so sure I can also beat this with diet/ food/ and exercise. Hope I haven't bored you, kat"
12/24/2011: Kat from Comox, Bc replies: "Hello to all and Mia form Vancouver,
I am really hoping to find you well and I am on Vancouver Island, also have breast cancer with the lump removed no chemo or radiation or scans yet. Now I have a large moveable lump in my arm pit. I could sure use a friend that is going through the same thing to chat with. I really am trying to stay calm and positive through this in spite of the Doctors remarks. Are you finding any Dr.. S who will support you, and willing to do blood work under the bc medical? I am not. If you are getting blood work done who is doing it??? I too am going to see a TMC and any blood work that he has asked for they refuse, they claim it is of no value.. SO their only solution to this is to go and redo surgery, remove more tissue and remove the lymph nodes and many I am told, also then do Chemo and radiation. Been told by the nurse ( Dec 23) not nice!!!! That if I do not do treatment I will die in 6 months really!!!! wow wow!
So far I feel ok to great some days (not today though ) I try to run 2- k a day, when I can, weather permitted of course in the rain forest. So, I need someone who is going through the same thing, any ideas and remedies that are working. I also know attitutde is a big part of healing. I am using Iodine it is call lugols paint- is this the same as what you are talking about? I am also doing tumeric and honey with castor oil. I also heard blood root and poke root are very good. Not sure yet on how to use these remedies as they can be toxic. Thanks for listening to whoever reads this. Merry Christmas"
02/23/2012: Kat from Comox, Bc replies: "Thanks for the Iodine info, Mia- you sound amazing. How much did you take and how much did you paint on your self? thanks Kat, comox, What else did you do??? Was your oncologist ok with you not doing standard treament. Still worked with you, did he/she- what blood work was performed I am am going through lymph node cancer myself no testing or chemo/ or biopsy thanks Kat"
[YEA] 11/27/2008: Lisa from Coto de Caza, CA: "I've have swollen & tender lymph nodes under my jaw for a few years and the Dr.'s ignore it. Found the Iodine cure on this website while looking for something else. I painted Potassium iodide on the lymph nodes and the swelling went down within a few hours, as well as the tenderness. Had to paint on again next morning. I've heard Lugol's works better but it hasn't arrived in the mail yet.
Also, took 4 drops in a glass of water on an empty stomach for the stomach flu ( kids have it) and feel better after about an hour. My fingers are crossed."
[YEA] 12/02/2008: Lisa from Coto de Caza, Ca replies: "I wrote in earlier about the potassium iodide (painted on) and that brought the swelling down after a few days. Well I got Lugol's iodine in the mail and within 2 days my lymph glands are not swollen. First time in a few years! No pain or tenderness. I started with 4-6 drops in a glass of water on on empty stomach. From what I read, I can work up to several more drops if needed."
04/26/2009: John from Houston, Texas replies: "I have had swollen lymph nodes for2 years under my ear right behind my jaw line . Nothing has worked for me at all. Where can I find this Logul's potassium iodide ? I really need help. My face is starting to look deformed. Please help."
EC: More info on our iodine page.
Potassium Iodide, also called SSKI, available in good health food stores. Lugol's solution is sold online.
04/21/2010: Amk1976 from Frisco , Tx replies: "I have a question, when you say painted on, do you mean on your skin? Just over the area that is swollen? Sorry, I hope that isn't a dumb question lol. I have a swollen lymph node, no insurance, so I'm wanting to try the iodine out!"
EC: Yes, here are a few posts on the subject!
Lavender Essential Oil
[YEA] 07/03/2011: Lovelyrita from Arvada, Co, Usa: "My lymph nodes have been very swollen and tender recently, with a burning sensation. Blood tests have all been normal and doctors aren't quite sure what it is yet. To get relief, however, I have been applying topically Lavender Essential oil and rubbing it into my skin over the swollen areas with vaseline. It has really worked to relieve the pain! I'll apply some vaseline, then add 3-4 drops of Lavender oil and begin massaging the area. After a minute, I just feel so much relief. It feels like it has a real calming effect. It works incredibly well if you do this, and then apply mild heat to the area with a heating pad. This has saved me from so much pain while trying to heal my condition!"
[YEA] 06/22/2011: Mybodywasmyprison from New Haven, Ct: "Okay, I have to start by saying that I am not hawking wares or trying to get anyone to sign up for anything. Just the opposite, in fact.
I am flatfooted, and have had some pain since I was little because of this. There were a number of injuries in my youth that never really healed. To make a long story shorter, the pain stepped up during puberty and I have not taken anything yet that alleviates it much at all. Basically, after 15 years of severe full body pain, frequent illness, and what was thought to be obesity and all the shame and scorn that comes with it, frustration and research lead me to attempt to drain my lymphatic system through very gentle massage.
Two weeks later, I have lost 12-15 inches in circumference without changing my diet or activity level... because my lymph nodes were clogged and the lymphatic fluid built up and stagnated (also known as cellulite).
It takes only a light touch and remembering to massage in counter-clockwise circles from the feet up, or head down, toward the heart, which is a main site of drainage.
I still have more to go and there were a number of other physical problems that developed since this all happened while I was growing, but the difference is so huge it's really absurd. I had no idea how contorted my body had become. It's been real torture -- my arms, shoulders and left leg essentially pinned in stress positions at all times. People who've seen me in the past couple weeks are stunned. I'm stunned.
Labeled as fat for most of my life, I didn't get the help I needed because no one would believe that the problem could be anything but a character flaw. These processed foods are immunosuppressant, and I wonder if they haven't been the main cause for the spike in obesity, diabetes, cancer rates, as well as the increasing number of cases of autoimmune disease. Why would the body know what to do with this junk we find in the store?
Anyway, give it a try on your lymph nodes. I feel better than I have since I was a little girl. My eustachian tubes are opening up, all of my senses are enlivened, and I have more energy as my body is cleansed.
I noticed a change within minutes. You ought to be able to feel the cellulite transform from semi-solid to fluid, and an unblocked lymph node will suck it right up.
I hope this helps some people. I've been massaging obsessively since I learned this, which explains the quick results. I think. But really. Obsessively.
If you can have someone help you with your back, do -- it's better if you can relax. Let's see... oh, and it can't hurt to give it a shot because the worst case scenario is that your body gets a little tlc."Replies

06/24/2011: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Another method to clear the lymphs is by using a rebounder. It's very effective."
06/24/2011: Donna from Drexel Hill, Pa replies: "Hi Lisa, just wanted to know how long you use the rebounder? Do you use it everyday, and for how many minutes. Thanks for all your great advice, I always enjoy reading your posts."
06/25/2011: Carly from Seattle, Wa - Usa replies: "Hi - I would like Lisa to post more on this also, as she knows more than I do on the subject....
I am up to 26 mins a day now, and believe me, it has taken while to work up to that! When I began, I thought I would never make it up to ten mins. Lol. I think when I started 3 mns or so was my limit.
It is fun though, you just do what your body feels up to doing, and try to add a couple of mins a week to it.
I have a datebook posted on my wall - I write my daily mins down on it - so I can see my progress. I have done back-slides a couple of times, but hey, if you are not feeling it, don't do it!
Now am working towards 30 mins.... Every weekday. I am usually too busy on weekends to do it. I figure 5 days on, 2 off is pretty good.
Web search it, and read all of the benefits.
Advice: Buy a cheapo rebounder until you know you will actually like it - then buy a better one - totally WORTH it. My first rebounder was from Wally World Online for about 35 dollars delivered... Then I stepped up to a 200 dollar rebounder (bungee cords, not springs) and it is AMAZING.... Well worth the money. I am so happy I broke down and spent the big bucks. (I am a pretty cheap person normally ;)).
I really love rebounding, and suggest everyone try it! :-)"
06/25/2011: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Carly, I probably don't know much more than you! I used to distribute them because I would train some of my dancers on them but also ice skaters. It is fantastic to build stamina and leg strength. I know they're quite effective for clearing the lymphatic system. It's also great if you can't do a whole lot because you can do "the health bounce" which is just as effective. We have a trampoline in our yard but the rebounder is great for people who don't have a lot of room. My husband uses it quite a bit.
I now have access to a Turbosonic machine which is quite advanced technologically so I have been using that. It only takes 10 minutes for amazing benefits. Also, I have hip issues so the rebounder can be hard on them. The turbosonic actually helps them."
[NAY] 12/01/2010: Jared from Sherman, Tx, Usa: "I recently came across this site looking for some answers. I had a huge knot rising up under my jawbone. I recently quit smoking, so everything I was reading seemed to fall right into place. I started with the ACV, sea salt, baking soda mixtures immediately with the feeling of elation, as if I had just found a miracle cure. In my situation, the knot had started as a tiny little bump, that had developed into the size of a golf ball within three days. The pain I felt was from the swelling and pressure it was placing on the muscles in my neck and not so much from the knot itself, although the swollen area was tender to the touch. After two days of following every little tip I could find on this site, the golf ball had turned into a lemon, and I now had a massive headache, dizzyness and total body fatigue setting in.
I broke down and went to the doctor. Doctor 1 looked at my neck and drew blood to do a white cell count. He concluded, that it was not a swollen lymph node, but instead, an abscess that needed to be drained. Being that it was located where it was, I needed to immediately go see an ear nose and throat specialist to do this procedure. At this point, I was not really happy about the fact that someone was going to stick a needle into my neck, but the relief I was going to get was well worth any misery that it may cause. Little did I know, this procedure would never take place.
I went to the specialist, who came in and read over the referring doctor's paperwork and then looked at my neck, and told me that I needed to just calm down, and don't worry about anything. He told me that it was not an abcess. It was indeed a swollen lymph node, in the beginning. The lymph node had swollen up, and blocked the salivary gland behind it. The huge knot under my neck was the salivary gland swelling up because it was blocked. I was prescribed a four day steriod pack and sour hard candy to stimulate the salivary gland. I am now on day three and the knot is down to the size of a dime. I feel pretty certain that it will be gone by the end of the day. Sometimes, we do just need to breakdown and go to the doctor."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 04/27/2009: Steveplc from London, UK: "i've been oil pulling for three months now. The lumps under my jaw have swollen and i assume they are lymphs. They started swelling about a month into oil pulling, any clues? Thank you"Replies
01/08/2012: Kjirsti from Central Alberta, Canada replies: "A lot of people will get swollen lymph nodes a few weeks into oil pulling, it's usually from lack of water. Are you drinking 2-3 glasses after you pull?
Massaging the area, rebounding and yoga have been beneficial to get rid of the swelling for most people. Some also use detox tea, and/or increase their salt intake by a little bit.
Always remember to drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins :)"
08/31/2012: Susan from New York: "Hi Ted, What is your experience with Rebounding on Trampoline ? Is that suppose to be good for lymph system? Flushing the lymph while stimulating the immune system and defending against cancer and other ailments."Replies
08/31/2012: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Susan, I'm not Ted but I have had a rebounder for years. They are very instrumental in keeping the lymph system healthy. Even if you aren't super fit, you can do what they call the health bounce and that will be just as beneficial. I know for the rebounder that I ordered, you can even get an attachment which is a handle for those who are older or unsteady so you can gently bounce for the benefits. Hope this information helps. Lisa"
09/01/2012: Anonymosaurus Rex from Somewhere, Alone, Listening To Radiohead replies: "As an addition to Lisa's comment - jogging or skipping (or just jumping up and down on the spot) can also give you the similar benefits without the need for extra equipment.
If you are not in physical condition to do either of those, gently bouncing whilst sitting on a properly inflated exercise ball will help, and it will provide a good exercise to help get your muscles into better condition too."
01/12/2012: Kat from Campbell River, Bc, Canada: "I had breast lumpectomy to remove a large2/3 cm mass in my left breast. I choose not do radiation or chemo, this procedure was done May of last year , now three months ago I have a large hard moveable lymph node in the armpit about 1-2cm , cancer favored according to the ultrasound report- the only recomodation from the surgeon is to remove more of the breast tissue to try to get clearer margins and then remove a lot of lymph nodes followed by radiation and chemo, I am not very willing to do the above.
I believe this lump is from the oringnal lump that was removed and the cells and remaining blood drained into my lymph node. I think, but could be wrong, that my body should be able to rid itself of this. Could this be, or are my hopes too high ??? Has anyone gone through this as well??? or what is a good treatment option naturally, to help shrink this, large lymph node after surgery??? I was told by the nurse in the surgeons office that if I do nothing I will be dead in six months. WOW!!! That was hard to take just before christmas!!! They want me to have a Ct SCAN and BONE SCAN both of these tests are done with a contrast dye and radiation. If cancer is caused by radiation and I know I am battling cancer, what is the benefit- is this a wise treatment option for me to do??? I am seeing a TCM and have been doing many natural remedies, I need help with anything/remedy that would and I should be trying, thanks in advance for you support and knowledge.
Also does anyone know of a MD family Doctor on Vancouver Island or in Vancouver that may think alternatively as well , I am also having a hard time requesting blood tests that my TCM feels are very valuable to help direct a natural remedy, the Doctors I have seen so far feel this is a waste time. Any info and feed back is appricated thanks in advance KAT "Replies
01/13/2012: Louwrence from Rustenburg, North West South Africa replies: "Hi Kat, Your best bet to survive is to find a person who does vit c IV. While you are doing that google liposomal vit c & study it very carefully so you know exactly what to do. Please do not ignore this as it can save your life & in the meantime alkalize your body & start taking lugols iodine- you can make it yourself. The formula is in "A Cure for all Disease" (Hulda Clark).
I sure hope for your sake that you will take this advice to heart. Also try to stop worrying as it just makes your body more acidic, cancer is not a death sentence as long as you do not go to drs then your survival rate is 2-3 %. I f you do try this method it is virtually 100%. Good luck."

I am already using baking soda 2/3 times a day to alkalize my body along with no sugar. Can the Vit c be taken internally and get the same benefits? Thanks in advance, Kat
P.S. do you think this lymph node will go down on its own in time w/ remedies, what are your views on a CT scan? I am so so confused- thanks again"

I slept for many years on this side of my neck, and often my neck and shoulder suffer discomfort over this, got an ear piercing on the right that hurts still since it was done in 2007, can't sleep on my right, can anyone help me? I haven't been to a doctor since I was 11yrs old, I believe in mind over matter and home remedies... would love some home cures please."
