No : Allergy is actually the opposite -- it is the inappropriate recognition of relatively innocuous substances and the reaction b/c of that.

Sort of: Many people are looking for some "magic pill" to "boost their immune system". There is no such pill. However, there is a way to boost your immune system, live a healthy lifestyle. Proper diet, proper sleep- wake cycles, healthy environment, proper exercise are the foundation of good health and good immune health. Any problems with your thyroid gland will affect your immune system health.
