8. Cleavers

This is a little known herb that stimulates almost every organ in the body, including the lymph system. Cleavers will also purify the blood and cleanse the body of toxins. This herb will help to relieve your swollen lymph nodes as well as rid the body of bacteria and viruses that are the underlying cause of most swollen lymph node problems. Drink cleaver tea twice each day until you get relief from your symptoms.

9. Lemon

One of the most underrated fruits on the planet, lemon can help heal sore throats, kill bacteria, and heal the mucus membranes in the throat and mouth. Inexpensive and found in every supermarket, lemons are a great way to relieve the pain and swelling of lymph nodes. Mix the juice from one organic lemon in one glass of water and drink twice each day. You can add a tablespoon of raw, organic honey if the taste is too sour for you. If you would rather eat the lemon whole, that also works — just be sure to rinse your mouth with water afterward to avoid acid damage to your teeth.

 

10. Apple Cider Vinegar

This is one of the simplest ways to reduce swollen lymph nodes. Apple cider vinegar has anti-bacterial compounds that are hard to beat, and they stop the problem at the source. Mix one teaspoon of honey and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in one glass of water and drink twice each day to relieve inflammation and pain.

Any of the above treatments will work best when taken at the very first sign of a cold, flu, or the first time you notice pain or swelling of the lymph nodes. If you are taking any prescription medications, if you are under a doctor’s care, or if you are pregnant, always consult your doctor before consuming any herbs to ensure that there are no drug interactions, harmful side effects, and for the protection of your unborn child.
