    I think what they are referring to is things you can eat, such as medicine or herbs that increase the immune system's effectiveness against viruses / bacteria

    well.....simple antibiotics like penicillin (or penicillin derivatives) will do wonders for bacterial infections (once they are established)....but don't take if you're allergic...there are others like arythomyacin and tetracycline (spelling may be wonky)....

    viral infections are an entirely different animal....once a virus is in your system...it is in your system.....absolutely no way to kill without killing you...it must run it's course.....blah....

    to build immunity all ya need to do is eat a balanced diet...carbs/proteins/supplements (the ratio of carbs to protein depend on how active you are) and exercise regularly....that's it....easy-peasy....

    and oh....coughing.....dryer climate is better ;)

    Vitamin C is a good one, especially for smokers. It can counter or delay some of the problems that develop over time.

    Rose hips and pine needles are good sources of Vitamin C, and they're found in most parts of the country.

    Other than that, garlic and onions are good easy-to-grow health-promoting foods.

    (This is an old thread that I came across. Nowdays it would be in "Health and Medicine")

    Mullein and Ephedra. The mullin blooms can be plucked and dried and are very good for asthma and coughs from colds and flu. I don't know that much about ephedra but you do have to watch out if you have high blood pressure it can cause strokes.
    but with all herbals you really need to read up on them.
