Treatment of swollen lymph nodes centers on identifying and treating the underlying cause of inflammation; however, effective options include both homeopathic remedies and herbal treatments. Treating infection homeopathically stimulates the system and boosts immune response. Likewise, herbs reinforce natural wellness and treat problematic conditions.
What are Swollen Lymph Nodes?
The lymph nodes or lymph glands are responsible for fighting off viruses, bacteria and other illness. Located throughout the body, lymph nodes affected by swelling are often found in the neck, under the chin, in the armpits and at the groin. Swelling in the lymph nodes is most often caused by a viral infection; however, other infections including bacterial and parasitic can also cause swollen lymph nodes. Symptoms associated with inflammation in the lymph glands include a tender, painful lump, a bump the size of a pea or kidney bean, runny nose, fever, sore throat, and night sweats. Additional symptoms may indicate a more progressive infection, immune disorder or cancer.
Natural Treatments for Swollen Glands
Homeopathic remedies are often particularly effective for treating swelling in the glands. Ferrum phosphoricum and Mercurius solubilis are used for treating swollen glands as well as underlying issues of swollen glands. The treatments trigger the immune response and reset the lymphatic system.
Herbal Remedies for Swelling in the Lymphatic System
The healing properties of herbs serve as an effective treatment options for swelling or inflammation in the lymphatic system. Echinacea, garlic and cleavers are effective options for treating and healing the lymphatic system. With antibacterial and cleansing properties, herbs treat infection and flush the system.
Echinacea is a frequently used herb with strong healing properties. Used as a treatment, Echinacea is capable of healing and strengthening the lymph system. Likewise, this herb eliminates infection by purifying the blood and lymph nodes.
Similar to Echinacea, garlic is an antibacterial herb that cleanses the system. Garlic is also anti-inflammatory, so it naturally helps reduce swelling. Eating two garlic cloves or taking six garlic supplement capsules daily will help alleviate swollen glands and any associated illness.
Cleavers is an herb that is typically thought to be one of the best lymphatic draining tonics. Also known as clivers, goosegrass and stickyweed, the herb stimulates the function of the lymphatic system and other organs to reinforce proper functioning. The herb also helps to cleanse and purify the blood.
Not a disease itself, swollen lymph nodes are typically the result of an underlying condition. Nonetheless, natural treatment options eliminate the underlying conditions and reduce swelling of the lymph glands safely.

[YEA] ACV does help for swollen lymphs. If the swollen lymph node becomes 3-4 inch big. It needed to be drained, I used a heat pad to burn 1 or 2 small spot and stay next to space heater.
1-2 days was the worst, high fever, night sweat, headache, pain.
3rd day (drained lymph node) fever almost gone, white/yellow Bacterial came out of NODE and it smell bad (bad fish).
4th day the node reduce 60% for the size and Bacterial keep coming out every minute. Later blood and Bacterial mix. the more you move the mouth, the more come out.
5th day 95% .... the burn spot begin to heal and no more lymph node.
Be-careful of food you eat, it can make it worse, like eggs, seafood, beef, etc. also this can be painful, so have advil, etc.
Take 2 spoons of Apple cider vinegar morning and night and keep the mouth cleaned. Going to ER wish cost me $4k-6k easy.
