Just wanted to say that after having a bad cold, I could not get rid of a rattle in my chest accompanied with cough. Knowing no medicine could solve it, it didn't do anything. I woke up one day with my glands so swollen. I knew whatever had flowed into them. Got online, and found this site. Tried the ACV, WOW in 1 minute right side was gone. 6 hrs for other. And my cough and rattle disappeared. A few weeks later I felt it coming on again. Some ACV and water, some keifer the next day.... All gone. Thank's earth clinic and commenters!

Thank you for the advice everyone shared. Had swollen glands and sipped about 3 tablespoons of the ACV - within a half an hour they had greatly reduced. I never expected it to happen so fast. Continued to take the same dose over the course of the day every 4 hours and again the following day. Feel so much better. Can't say how many times this site has helped me.
Thank you for ACV advise, I've been having swollen gland for days now but it's finally cure by taking ACV. (practically overnight) I've been using ACV to help my son w/his sinus infection, which has been working really well. We've been able to avoid going to the dr and antibiotic because of this. We paired it w/ manuka honey from New Zealand which work as natural antibiotic. At any rate, I'm really glad ACV able to get rid of the swollen gland. Thanks again!
First I tried Lavender Oil, on neck, jaw line, behind ears, it tingled, started working, then tried ACV. One day later, feeling way better, & surprisingly this is the second late night 4 me.. B4 I was fatiged- worth a try.. So worth it.. If u have facial jaw pain, soreness.. For a year I suffered, now better, & swelling is down.
I had swollen lymph nodes in my neck about one month after quitting smoking. I read about apple cider vinegar and decided I had nothing to lose besides about $5. I took three shots the first day and one shot every day after that, one week later the swelling is down and I feel much better. I definitely recommend giving this a try before anything else.
The Apple cider vinegar works for Swollen Lymphs. I tried the baking soda an salt it didnt do anything but when i tried the ACV my neck instantly felt better thanks for the home remedy.
Man am I glad this site exists. Couldn't get back to sleep last night because my swollen lymph nodes were KILLING me (granted, smoking a hooka with a bad cough/cold was not a good idea but nonetheless I was in pain). I found this page and found (somehow) some apple cider vinegar and like magic in less than 3 minutes my pain was completely gone.
Seriously, thank you and keep the home remedies coming!
I am 30 years old and recovering from cellulitis/staph infection. The lymph nodes in the groin area of the leg where the infection began have been really swollen, limiting range of motion and causing significant discomfort walking, sitting Indian style, etc. Yesterday I took 2t ACV with about 8 0z of club soda (sparkling water) two times. This morning I already notice significant improvement, I can sit Indian style and don't notice any tenderness. I am truly amazed!

I am 28 years old, and this summer I had my first experience w/ a swollen lymph node. I was told to drink hot tea w/ ginger root and a little pepper, and to gargle w/ warm salt water. While the tea was very soothing, there was no decrease in the swelling. After a few days of little improvement, I did some research and decided to try old faithful, Apple Cider Vinegar. They swelling in my throat decreased by half w/in minutes. Since then I have been reading about ACV and its helpful effects. The taste of it does not bother me at all, I love the tanginess, so I've never diluted it in water. I just take a shot out of the bottle. My question then, your website says to sip and not chug. Why? What difference does it make if I sip on it, or take it all at once? especially if I enjoy the taste. I am very curious. Thanks! Ariana
EC: We suggested sipping acv to keep the pH consistently alkaline. Only suggestions, nothing written in stone. Try chugging it and let us know!

I had a very bad case of swollen lymph node near my cheek bone probably also due to 2 mouth ulcers, it was so painful even after 1 course of antibiotics did not ease my discomfort. I decided to try Apple Cider Vinegar after reading much about this miracle drink from earthclinic, it's no brainer to guess what happened next, my lymph node shrunk to the size that i did not even feel its existence. My ulcers healed on the 2nd days i used the ACV.

Amazing! On Thursday evening I noticed pain on both sides of my neck, and began worrying about all the possibilities. By Saturday, I'd realized I was suffering from continually swelling lymph nodes. After reading through the info on this site, I took one shot glass of ACV every four hours throughout the day, along with lots of fresh filtered water. I'm shocked at how quickly the swelling subsided!!!

I woke up and I could literally feel my right lymph gland swelling - within 15 minutes it got about the size of a lemon and was starting to hurt and I couldn't move my neck. Not knowing what to do I happened to see some ACV staring me in the face in my fridge and knowing it was good for anything, I took 2 Tbsp. in water. Within 5 minutes the swelling went down and by 15 minutes the pain and most of the swelling was gone. 2 days later, I am continuing to take it 3 times a day and it is much better. I suspect my body is still fighting off the infection. I was amazed.

I was wondering if there is anybody who might be able to answer a question for me..I am a 30 year old female.. I smoked cigarettes for 15 years and just recently quit.. About 3 months ago I went to the doctor because I have extremely swollen lymph nodes and was in pain every day because of it..I have been put on all sorts of antibiotics,and nothing has worked.. I am getting very worried its cancer.. They have run at least 10 tests, and the lymph nodes haven't decreased, even after quitting smoking and being on all of these antibiotics.. Do you know of anything at all that I might be able to take the swelling down and get rid of the infection? Thank you for your time,Tracee

I have swollen gland in the back of my neck. I was freaked out because I got a sore throat also.
1. I drink a shot of ACV mix with honey one in the morning and one before dinner.
2. I use Castor oil rub and massage on the gland.
It seems like working for me the gland is getting smaller and almost disappear after couple day and my sore throat is gone. Thanks to ACV and Castor Oil.
