Hi, I Need To Know What I Can Take To

Question: Hi, I need to know what I can take to raise my immunity. I need to get my immune system reeved up to maximum capacity. I caught covid on 2/5/22 and I do not want to ever catch that nasty virus again. I am not fully vaccinated and have preexisting conditions, so you know I was very fortunate to still be among the living. I had only had 1 Pfizer shot on January 12 and was to have my 2nd dose on 2/4 but I was sick, and they refused to give it to me. Then the next day I found out that I had COVID.

Brief Answer:
Vitamin C and D

Detailed Answer:
HI,

Thanks for your query.

Immunity to a specific disease is almost always attained by vaccination or natural infection.

Overall Immunity implies not only the blood-related immunity but physical too. A fit body with all other pre-existing comorbidities under control, prevention or treating any deficiencies if present especially Vit D deficiency. These corrections imply improved immunity.

Daily exercises and mind relaxation exercises like meditation also count as measures to improve immunity. Hence, there is no short cut or a specific medicine which improves immunity. Overall health is necessary to have good immunity.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
