Stay physically fit: There's no magic food, pill or herbal product. Get enough sleep and don't overdo mind-altering substances or use tobacco. The one intervention that repeatedly is shown in controlled studies to enhance people's responses to antigen challenges is re-committing to aerobic fitness. You'll be glad. Best wishes.
