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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
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!!!
Apple Cider Vinegar
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar
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.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Castor Oil
I've read all the recommendations for taking down the swelling of a calcified lymph node and have a question: Many have written that using castor oil as a poultice helps to shrink the lymph node -- also taking ACV. Would it be safe and would it work to MIX the ACV with the castor oil and use that as a rub?? My mother is elderly and has a large calcified lymph node on her neck -- jawline and just in front of her ear. It is very hard and nothing has helped to take it down. If anyone has any information on this method. please send your comments to this site, and I will check back. Thanks so much!

Cure needed. About three weeks ago I noticed two swollen lymph nodes. One on the back of my neck under my hair line and another on my neck under my jaw. I thought maybe I was just getting sick even though I had no cold symptoms. After about a week I found a white/yellow pimple like bump on the skin fold behind my tonsil but not touching my tonsil. I scoured the internet looking for a similar picture to what I had. I believe I have a lymphoepithelial cyst but I do not have insurance nor can I afford a doctor visit. I have been eating 1-2 cloves of raw garlic per day and drinking 3 tbsp of ACV. I have also been gargling with salt water and coconut oil and lightly massaging the node. I have not seen any improvement except the node on the back of my neck is a bit smaller. My only symptoms are the swollen lymph nodes which I believe are causing mild discomfort in my neck and ear. The cyst does not hurt.
I guess I am trying to see if anyone else has had this and has any advice. Thanks!
Took some mullein tincture AND some cleavers tincture (moves lymph) right after reading this, drank a glass of water with ACV, and went to lunch — For the first time in two days, chewing & eating didn't make my glands swell like a bad case of mumps and hurt so much I had to get a to-go box! Nope, I ate my whole lunch without pain, came home and looked in the mirror and saw that the whole left side of my face and neck is much less swollen!
I need to ask you an important question. I've been taking lemon juice (1 whole lemon squeezed) 1/4 teaspoon baking soda for a week to help my neck glands to subside. But the lump is still there. I've also been taking the zinc supplement once a day.
What should I do? Is my formula correct? What other diet or food that I must stay away or take more? How long must I stick to this alkaline drink before I can see result? I've to visit my EarNoseThroat (ENT) Specialist this weekend already!! Please advise.
Thanks so much for your time. God bless.
Lymph Node Soreness
What helped me most was applying organic castor oil with some DMSO externally on the area of my neck that was hurting so bad. I then went and did rebounding on my mini trampoline...gently but firm bouncing, my feet remained on the trampoline at all times. It made the knife stabbing pain and throbbing go away within minutes!! Until then, I'd been up all night sitting on the side of the bed in pain and unable to sleep...God is good?
I have been sick for around 2 months. It started with a cold then progress to severe cough and ended with lymph node infection. My ear and throat was in pain even when I talk and no matter what I do, it just doesn't heal completely. I was getting worried as it seems to take too long to heal. So I started to search for natural remedies for swollen lymph nodes and came across castor oil application. I did not do the whole protocol. I simply apply castor oil to the area behind my ears and around my neck where the lymph nodes are. After doing this for 3 consecutive nights, I purged out a lot of mucus and I was about 90% healed. One more time of application and I was healed 100%. The pain which has been plaguing me for 2 months was completely gone in 4 castor oil application! Amazing!
I'm 28, Male and have been suffering from multiple lymph nodes on both sides of the neck for the past 5 years. I've had multiple fine need biopsy and Sentinel Lymph node excision biopsy and CT scans during after 6 months of onset but was inconclusive for many possibilities including lymphoma, sarcoidosis, TB, etc. The pathology mostly said it was Reactive Lymph nodes.
Also, my SCM muscles kept swelling up because of these and then wondered if it was Fibromyalgia after seeing some posts on earthclinic. Then I started a Sugar free, diet with minimum brown rice, lentils, beans, steamed veggies etc alternating with Carrot/Beetroot juice fasting intermittently ACV water, I had significant improvement in the swelling. I almost always felt better with the Juice fasting. But I was losing weight a lot. I was down from 160 pounds to 130 in 4 months and I put on almost all the weight in the next 2 months when I resumed my regular diet (high carb, occasional junk).
Then I started Cold CASTOR OIL application on the neck daily for 5 minutes and doing mild Excercise (Stretching, spot jumping) for 15 minutes before bathing for exactly 1 month while on a Zero Sugar, med carb, med protein, veggies diet while trying not to lose weight.
The Results were AMAZING. The Swelling around lymph nodes reduced significantly though not disappeared completely I'd say I feel much better. The SCM muscle swelling and no more flaring up which happen after meals earlier.
I halted this remedy after I had a scare yesterday after I reading in some post about castor oil application might spread certain cancers which might spread the disease.
I would definitely resume this method once I am sure I am not doing more harm by spreading bacterial/malignant conditions.
Would love Ted's or anybody elses feedback.
I've had a tender lymph node on the side of my neck, running behind my ear, for a couple of weeks now. I started taking ACV twice a day, then increased to 3x a day. While there was some slight improvement, it wasnt enough so I've now tried castor oil - rubbed a small amount on my neck and behind my ear, put a towel on my pillow and then went to sleep for the night. When I awoke it was improved but not cured. Granted, it's only been one application so I feel that if I continue with the oil it will definitely heal.

My daughter was diagnosed with Lymphatic Malformation or Cystic Hygroma, (A large growth or swollen mass just under the skin in the neck/throat area), when she was born. It was alarming to say the least. It is a congenital birth defect, and it has to do with a defect in the venous system or Lymph system. The cyst are filled with Lymph fluid. It's also very unpredictable, and a cyst can swell up or go down at any time, and new cysts can appear at any time. The cysts can get very large, and cause deformities in the face and other parts of the body, and obstruct breathing. There is no known cure, except surgery and a drug that can be injected directly into the cyst called OK-432. Usually when the child gets sick or has an infection anywhere in the body, they swell up, or new ones appear. My daughter is two now. About 2 months ago, she developed a new cyst on the other side of her face/neck. I freaked out. I'm not to keen on doctors, because of what they put her through when she was born, and (No money, or a car), I'm always searching for an alternative cure.
I've had extremely good results with Castor Oil. I'm a big believer in this stuff. I buy big bottles of it at a time, it's great. I use it, whenever I have a problem. Edgar Cacey was a Christian, and always gave credit where credit was do, to God, and he felt motivated by him. There have been many, many documented reports over the decades of Castor oil really helping a lot of people for a wide spectrum of ailments. I put her on Castor oil packs about 4 times a week for two months, and the cyst went WAY down, and has stayed that way for a while now. Now, I'm not 100% sure that was what worked for her, but we seem to notice it beginning to shrink and a response from her as soon as we started her on the packs.
The packs are messy, and it's not easy to get a child to hold still for a pack on their abdominal area. So, I used an old throw away shirt, and safety pins. I safety pinned the saturated flannel section on the inside of the front of the shirt to cover her stomach, and generously massaged a large amount of the oil all over her cysts on her neck and throat. I did this regime at night, and in the morning gave her a bath or a shower. The heating pad is not really necessary, but helps, a lot. I did not do a heat source on her, because she is so young, she would never sit still for it. The first few nights, she was restless, and agitated, and was running a mild fever. Then in the morning, the fever would break. We noticed it getting smaller from than on. It really seemed to help her those packs. She seem to have a lot of energy and be in a good mood, the mornings after the packs. If and when this happens again, I'll try the packs again. Castor oil is great. Hope this helps her. Like Cacey said, Do the packs along with a prayer for healing.
I am so grateful for this site! Last night I woke with a swollen lymph the size of a tennis ball and was terrified. I'm 24 and have never had something like this happen before. But, did a google search and found your site and Castor Oil recommendation. It REALLY works! I placed castor oil on the area and placed a flannel rag over it and a heat pad. This morning my lymph was still slightly swollen, but after a bath of epson salts, baking soda, and apple cider vinegar as well as eating miso soup (a very alkalizing food) I feel 100% better. I had been sick with a cold for about two weeks and these remedies seemed to cure that as well. I think it is also important to note that these remedies work really well when you have a frame of mind that supports curing yourself, by re-focusing on the things that give you joy and the things that you love, can only help you be more grateful and less focused on the thoughts that created this illness to begin with. Thank you so much!
