Hi thanks for the question
Swollen lymph nodes can be caused by viral or bacterial infections such as lymphadenitis and glandular tuberculosis or lymph node cancer (lymphoma). There are no standard rules regarding taboos and recommendations for food and drink on swollen lymph nodes. However, in principle, the recommendation to eat on swollen lymph nodes is to increase the body's immune system.
It is advisable to eat foods rich in antioxidants, as these substances will protect the immune system from free radical damage caused by diseases such as lymphoma or glandular lumps. In addition, the portion of carbohydrates, protein and fat also needs to be considered. The following foods are recommended:
Mineral. Fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants such as vitamin A and vitamin C (oranges, apples, spinach, collards, oranges, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, broccoli, carrots and green leafy vegetables)
Carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body. Foods that are high in good carbohydrates: brown rice, bread, pasta, oats and potatoes.
Protein is needed to accelerate the healing of swollen lymph nodes such as meat, fish, eggs, and beans.
Healthy fats or unsaturated fats to nourish cells such as: olive oil, almonds, macadamia nuts, mackerel, tuna, healthy oils and salmon.
The benefits of soursop leaves to reduce enlarged lymph nodes are still doubtful. There is no clear research that proves the effectiveness of the content of this fruit to shrink lymph nodes.
I hope this information is helpful
