Thanks so much for the responses John B and Deanna! I will continue using the rebounder and have experienced relief in the last few days. Deanna, I liked your suggestion of using it twice/day for longer sessions. I certainly have enough energy now. Praise the Lord for healing all these months!
Thanks again and God Bless!
Glad to hear that you invested in a rebounder... best way by far to move the lymphatic system! Warm compresses on the swollen glands can also help bring some relief.
Keep your head up dear.
Hi Jenny (and Tara)!
I love Tara's suggestion on the Essential Oils and am glad you're giving them a try Jenny, they really do work wonders!!
I also wanted to mention, don't give up on the rebounder. I battled severe swelling in my ankles (primarily my left) as well as swollen lymph glands for quite some time, when I used the rebounder twice a day (to keep my lymph moving), morning and night the swelling was always less. It took time but eventually and thankfully the swelling is now VERY minimal if at all.
When I was at my worst and had little to no energy I always made myself bounce at least 100 times, per session. When I felt better I used it longer, I would try to bounce through a sitcom or at least half of one, etc. I still use the rebounder morning and night now as a preventative measure.
Stay the course, my friend, you are winning!!!
Love, Peace & MANY Prayers,
Thanks for the response Tara! Love the essential oil suggestion. I did a mixture of lemon and peppermint with coconut oil as a carrier yesterday. Mel also recommended gargling with WPS a few times/day, so hopefully both of those will help.
Thanks again for your response. Prayers for your continued recovery!
So good to hear that you've on the protocol for 11 months! I am getting ready to start my seventh month, and I have been having issues with my lymph glands as well. Usually those in my neck, below the ears, and I've also had some problems with one on the back of my neck, which at one point was a larger that a pea, but smaller than a marble.
Anyway, I made myself drink more water, and used some Essential Oils on them direct. I've used lavender and spearmint with coconut oil, but you could also use lemon, lime, peppermint or lemongrass. I can also say that peppermint has helped with the swelling and pain of my swollen glands below the ears. Lemon is defiantly good for drainage and can help in clearing up blockage, and can also help to increase their function.
My lymph glands are still swollen some, but the one on the back of my neck has receded completely.
I hope this helps. Wishing you all the best!!

About 6 months into my recovery, I woke with swollen lymph nodes in my neck. I have had issues with lymph nodes all my life with various colds and illnesses. This particular time, it felt a little different, in that I felt like I had a marble lodged in my throat when I swallowed. As it increased in intensity, moving up to intense pain in my ear, I worked at treatments that I have read about. I eventually got that to calm down, but it never completely goes away and flares up approximately once per month. I am now in my 11th month on the protocol and understand that this is very likely part of detoxing.
I spoke with Mel about it a couple of months ago and we discussed a rebounder. I did pick up a mini-trampoline and try to use it a couple of times per day. I'm not sure if I'm using it enough, though.
Anyway, if anyone has recommendations for treatment, I would appreciate it. I am feeling so much better in so many other ways, however, during a flare up (right now), it can make life pretty miserable to work and keep up with my family.
Thanks and prayers to all of you warriors!
