How can I strengthen my immune system? What vitamins should I be taking or is there certain foods I can eat or drink?

No sure way.: Staying in good physical shape with regular exercises (not extreme exercises) and a healthy diet may be helpful. Make sure your plasma vitamin d3 level is optimal since vitamin d3 has been shown to be an important immune regulator. I would like to see the 25 oh vitamin d3 level to be around 50 to 60 ng even though the recommended level is around 30 ng. ...Read more

Can you improve your immune system by drinking orange juice?

Can you improve your immune system by drinking orange juice?

Not really: Review of current literature demonstrates an overall inconsistent set of data to suggest that orange juice, or its constituents (like vitamin c), have any broad sweeping or amazing effect on immune function. Most review papers have demonstrated that while vitamin c may reduce some symptoms of acute infections, it has not been shown to reduce the number of infections or work as prophylaxis for cold. ...Read more

No: That's silly stuff. The fact that it's promoted for everything should tell you that this is intended to mislead good, simple people.

Weak immune system. Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

Weak immune system.  Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

A cold is vague: I think it is unfair to assume yourself having a weak immune system without being diagnosed by a doctor or an immunologist to quantify which immune system is weak. A lot of things can make you feel sick including staying out in the sun for several hours. If your symptoms does not improve, you deserve a doctor's visit. ...Read more

My blood test said I have a milk allergy (moderate), but i still drink milk. Could the blood tests have been wrong? Could it weaken my immune system?

My blood test said I have a milk allergy (moderate), but i still drink milk. Could the blood tests have been wrong? Could it weaken my immune system?

Irrelevant test : Unfortunately, food allergy testing by skin test or blood test is not very predictive. A negative skin test is very good about saying a person is not allergic, but positive blood and skin tests are very common and are clinically relevant less than 50% of the time. The real milk test is what happens when you drink it----nothing. This is a problem with the test and not your immune system. ...Read more
