3. Take bee pollen supplement and the herb stinging nettle.

4. Use an air purifier in workspace, as well as home space.

5. Exercise indoors with filtered air.

6. Drink 8-12 glasses of water daily.

Strategies for a stronger immune system:

2. Maintain a positive and uplifting attitude.

3. Eat lots of garlic, ginger, cilantro, and oregano.
