Vitamins: There is no evidence that vitamins are ever going to increase your immune system to a specific virus. Hpv is so common, it might be considered an anomaly instead of an abnormality. We have many viruses and many immunities in our bodies. Our currant vaccinations are meant for the younger generations, and should be utilized. Your past infections are up to your own immune systems.

No magic pill: 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. Supplements should be used selectively to supplement a healthy diet.
