Constant cold viruses -any way to be more immune ?!

Question: Constant cold viruses -any way to be more immune .?
I am fed up taking one cold virus after another! I break out in spots and am generally 'run down' I eat a diet rich in fresh veg and fish and low in fat so wondered if anything boosts the immune system worth a try !Health Question & Answer

For me, my throat area is really weak, and I get attacked by a lot of viruses that go for the throat (-:. My reading suggests it's post nasal drip (the docs don't see anything wrong, until it's Seriously Wrong).

One thing that has helped tremendously is nasal cleansing. I was just reading a magazine that suggests you snort a little salt water, then let it drain out. Well, I've been doing this with plain water for about two years, and it's really helped.

Another thing I've done is started taking Vitamin D -- I read about this in Mother Earth News, and the article is here: (takes a little while to download; this is a small but legitimate print magazine in the US, so don't worry -- they are kind of hippie-ish though!).

I've gotten the flu shot the last two years (but not this year), and surprisingly, this seemed to help against run-of-the-mill stuff, too.

And, this year, my doctor recommended Traditional Chinese Medicine, so I've been taking that, and having some mild success. I also try to drink Japanese Green Juice (aojiru) everyday, and I've got a ginseng tea that I can drink when I'm running down. also, my sister sent me some Air Health tablets that are supposed to help with immunity.

(-: I sound like a hypochondriac. But I don't think these things are placebos; I think they really help.

I'll tell you something that doesn't help me much, though. Those Germanium foot things that turn black overnight. LOL! Total quackery! They do get warm but we've got chemical packs here in Japan that also warm up when rubbed, so I think I can get the same effect with less money and less gunk. But . . . you'll never know until you try, I guess.

Hope you are feeling better soon!Health Question & Answer

1. Drink your lemons. Lemon is the ideal food for restoring acid-alkali balance. Drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice in water, or adding it to tea, salad dressings (in place of vinegar), baking or cooking, helps maintain the body's internal "climate" at a pH which supports healthy bacteria instead of the viruses and harmful bacteria which thrive in more acidic environments. Apple cider vinegar is another great way to improve your body's alkalinity, but the taste of lemons is much more pleasant!
