In brief: No

Contrary to the claims on many of the supplements you find in the health food stores, there is no such thing as "boosting" the immune system. The best way to handle this problem is to see your dermatologist.

In brief: No great answer

This is very difficult to answer. Genital warts are usually caused by an herpes simplex-2 virus that lays dormant in nerve-endings, similar to oral herpes or cold sores.
They can be suppressed with medications. Having a strong immune system can help to suppress but trying to strengthen one's immune system is not the same as exercising. The best thing to do live a healthy lifestyle.
