Immune boosting: can be helpful. Do you get enough sleep and eat an nutritious diet? Consider seeing a nutritionist after a visit to your doctor to rule out medical conditions. If you take vitamin C make sure you do so morning and evening since it only lasts about 12 hours in your body. Peace and good health.

Nutrtion, herbs, etc: A good multivitamin & healthy diet helps. Many vitamins & minerals like Vit A & D & zinc boost immunity. Avoid sweets and fried food. Many herbs like astragalus & ashwagandha help, as do medicinal mushrooms like reishi & shiitake. Reducing stress & getting adequate rest is crucial. Homeopathy & acupuncture help.The Road to Immunity by Kenneth Bock MD is a wonderful book on how to boost immunity.
