I started to get sick on Saturday, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, painful to swallow. My wife started to get sick yesterday. Found your remedy and tried the apple cider vinegar remedy. I took 2 tablespoons in a large glass of water. Started to feel better about 2 hours later. My wife hates vinegar and took 2 Tylenol. I drank another glass of apple cider vinegar last night. Lymph nodes back to normal this morning, just a slight cold and i am taking vitamin c and zinc for that. Wife not improved.

Had swollen lymph nodes in my neck from a virus I caught over the weekend. Saw these posts about app cider vinegar. Last night I took 2 tablespoons in a small glass of water and drank it quickly. I can't do shots of ACV, ughh. This morning my lymph nodes were not as swollen. I repeated the tonic twice more, after breakfast and after lunch. Lymph glands back to normal tonight. I will keep it up for another few days. Fantastic.

I have had swollen nodes or cyst for about a week now. Been scared to death, had ultrasound done but no results yet. Anyways after reading your entries I decided to try the ACV and I swear my neck an hour later feels almost completely normal. I feel a little lump there almost like a pea or a bean but nothing like it was. I'm in amazement.

Maybe because of a tooth issue, I have 2 or 3 painful lymph nodes and horrible ache in my jaw. I've been taking nsaids, pain meds, pain cream, lidocaine. Found this online and thought why not? It was awful tasting. Didn't work instantly, but overnight the jaw pain is 95% better and nodes 90% better. Finally relief after almost a week of misery. I don't know how it helps, but it (ACV) did.

I had a tonsillectomy this past October, and since then my lymph nodes on my throat and jaw have been more sensitive. I did find relief while drinking elderflower tea, but it can get a bit pricey and it only helps for so long. The pain was getting worse because of a sinus infection I was trying to kick. I got antibiotics but still, nodes were on and off again painful. Saw this blog, left work for 20 mins and bought some ACV. It has been about 30 mins since I took it, and I gotta say there is some improvement in my right side node. My left is still a bit sensitive, but not as sensitive as it was earlier. Will take another shot before class! Thanks to everyone who posted about it, I was hesitant until I read all the great responses. Mahalo

I'm not usually one to post on forums, but I was having some of the worst pains ever from my lymph nodes and throat. I'd been taking medicine that really just wasn't helping and decided to look up a natural remedy. I came across this page and went to the grocery, got some ACV, and came home and mixed a shot with a small glass of water. WOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW

Not only can I swallow again, but my lymph nodes are 1/2 the size they were before. The effects were almost instantaneous and gradually my symptoms have been decreasing. Thank you so much to whoever made this page.

I have two stories. First, when I was 16 I had swollen glands at neck and groin for years. The Dr. had me return bi-weekly and be subjected to pelvic exams - then after 6 months of my objections - my parents could not longer get me to go after many missed visits - (Dr. recommended by Dad's sister, a nurse, so only Dr. considered). At the final visit - Dr. declared me a hypochondriac. Three years later, in college went to student health center with a female interning Dr. She immediately told me I had an inguinal hernia, and would have to get a referral for a surgeon from a Dr. Was brought back to same Dr. to get the referral - he didn't believe females could get inguinal hernias - pressed so deeply into my swollen gland that my eyes saw a curtain of black as my legs gave out with extreme pain - he let go at last second to check his medical books - came back after leaving me standing in an area with no chairs - about 15 or so minutes - and gave a referral. In this case swollen glands indicated an inguinal hernia.

Second story - 8 years after a hit and run rear-end crash - herniated discs - whiplash - pinched occipital nerve (discovered 2 years later after being unsuccessfully treated for "migraines" for 2 years) - still having symptoms of lethargy - weight gain - inability to walk without pain in knees, ankles and feet - growing pain in jaw and neck - hormonal induced swelling and pain in neck jaw and head area. Finally found an osteopath who does gentle adjustment - in one visit - imbalance in legs went away, including knee, ankle and most of hip, allowing me to work on painful callus that had formed on feet. So, I decided to go on a ketogenic diet to speed metabolism, knowing many toxins will be released, deciding not to take NSAIDS. Hormones came and horrible pain in side of head and neck. (no longer down to feet, just mid-back now). By the third day could no longer take it - Osteopath had mentioned lymph may be affected when jaw became affected - as this happened at 6 years with no further trauma - and said jaw pain is bodies last physical line of defense.

Now, recognizing and able to focus on upper pains, realized the lymph on left back of head was cause of the swelling, could not lean back on a chair, hours to get to sleep, neck and jaw pain too much to sleep on my preferred left side. I read this forum and took a spoon of ACV - with an ounce of water, and 3 days of pain - fighting myself not to take NSAIDS - and RELIEF! I read hot water throughout day also helps, and cut up fresh ginger in it to keep lymph circulating. Read sleeping on left side, or lying on left side for 10 minutes after meals - puts organs in natural position to move lymph and bile to help digestion and lymph flow.

I also took what essential oils I had: wintergreen, thyme and rosemary into some avacado oil, and rubbed into swollen glands and around neck. The ACV and oil worked immediately, and as the day went by the hot ginger tea seemed to give gentle relief. Last night I was able to sleep on my left side - first time in many years. Today, all but some sore swollen areas in the back of my neck and under throat, are gone, and discomfort is not considerable. Someone mentioned the ACV also will help jaw pain - my jaw clicked less than usual - though hormonally I usually have a few good days during this time period - and I will continue the ACV for the lymph and jaw. Was hesitant about taking my iodine lugols, but now am taking it without hesitation.

Thank-you, this forum saved me from spiralling back into a circle of pain, swelling, drug relief and weight gain. Now I can continue my ketosis diet, and rid my body of the fat stored toxins use the ACV and these methods to naturally allow my body to heal itself without unbearable discomfort to my mind and body.

Thanks so much people of this earthclinic forum!

I have swollen glands under my chin, neck and chest. I read these Apple Cider Vinegar postings and off I went to my local market. I got home and took two teaspoons of ACV and within one minute I felt relief. It is hard to believe, but this worked. I plan on taking some before bed and in the morning. Thanks to all who posted on this subject it saved me a trip to a walk in clinic which would have ended up costing me money, time and no doubt the doctor would have prescribed antibiotics.

Hi everybody, I have been addicted to this site for the last 3yrs and it's amazing how many health problems ACV really does cure, it's a miracle itself. My lymph nodes on my throat have flared up twice now in the last two weeks and I'm sure it's from smoking more than I usually do. I cured it the first time by boiling chopped up ginger and garlic and adding cayenne peppper. The stronger and more concentrated the tea the better if you ask me. I add tsb of agave honey to help it taste better and added virgin coconut oil and ACV after to the tea. It sounds like a crazy drink but I actually like it as I know it's going to fix me. After 1hr my pain had gone. I was so happy! I also tried it with white vinegar and raw coconut vinegar which was still effective. If you only have that in the kitchen still try it as it also eased my pain. I hope this helps someone else.

Thankyou Earthclinic, u changed my life! <3

I had a barium swallow and follow through procedure. Two days later I had a swollen lymph node and I tried the apple cider vinegar it worked quickly. I was highly impressed.

Hi, I've begun taking the apple cider vinegar for an infection that had moved into my lymph nodes. I had improvement after 60 seconds and the problem was solved completely within 3 days. (I'd had the infection for a year. ) I've continued taking it and even increased the dose - a capful in about an ounce of natural juice 3 or more times a day, sipping throughout the day. It's an enormous help with chronic pain and I'm hoping that it will end an issue with an ovarian cyst (??).

Quite grateful to Earth Clinic for the shared worldly knowledge. Thank you so very much for making this site available!

Hello all, I hope someday my story will help someone who has gone through what I have.

For over a year, the glands on both sides of my neck, and also on the back of my head have been swollen, which made me scared that something was wrong. I had blood work done and also saw a healer, nothing came back as serious, but still, your glands swell up only because your body is fighting something.

I bought organic Apple cider vinegar. I take a shot in the morning, and have only been doing this for two days. The glands are no longer swollen! Within two days, the ACV has worked a miracle and I no longer have swollen glands!

Suffering from a bad cold that turned to pneumonia, the glands on the left side of my neck, getting horribly bad to the point of concern of needing to go to the emergency room, I found this site, drank the ACV in water, and ohmygosh! At about 15 minutes the pain had abated about 50%, now, at about 45 minutes, it's abated about 75%!!! I'm sure now I'll asleep tonight and continue to get well. Thanks for all the posts on this!!!

Hello I was reading the threads for Swollen Lymph nodes and under Ted's recommendations as the Lymph nodes under my chin to the left of my face have swollen to 3 times normal for 5 weeks now.. I still don't know what is causing it though the CT showed no serious ailments..... Amoxil and Doxcycylin didn't work so I tried Apple Cider Vinegar. I just started drinking swigs from the bottle an organic brand here called Macro... I have so much energy today I feel something is definitely improved in those area regarding ACV.... I am also a firm believer in Calcium Ascorbate... Pure VIT C and have been taking that as well.... I recommend take the AC vinegar with some suitable foods as its a bit strong or mix with other suitable juice or water... I am going to keep taking it. I felt like I was sweating out an infection overnight and hope in time this marvelous tonic called AC Vinegar might help thank you to everyone who wrote under this topic for Swollen Lymph nodes you helped me!! Cheers all the best to you...Jane
