Unless I overlooked, it is strange Vitamin D is not mentioned here. It might not solve all the issues mentioned by the OP but is one of the best documented supplements to support the immune system. Many of us might be deficient or not sufficient in blood levels in particular as we age. Vitamin D receptors (VDR) are expressed on many tissues and are crucial for the macrophage functioning.

 

I would immediately test our 25OH Vitamin D level and supplement till I have a sufficient blood level. There are many discussion on this on LC and optimal doses and the following references might provide a starting points:

 

Prietl B, Treiber G, Pieber TR, Amrein K. Vitamin D and immune function. Nutrients. 2013;5(7):2502-21.

 

Sakem B, Nock C, Stanga Z, et al. Serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and immunoglobulins in an older Swiss cohort: results of the Senior Labor Study. BMC Med. 2013;11:176.

 

Holick MF. The D-lemma: to screen or not to screen for 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations. Clin Chem. 2010;56(5):729-31.

Sorry for your plight. Here are some things I've done or are doing. Maybe there is something that can help.

  • I had chronic bronchitis for 50 years.  I finally got rid of it by taking clarithromycin for 10 days.
  • I'm taking 22mg of zinc (in zinc picolinate) four x per day (88mg total) to reduce my viral load and cure a plantar wart
  • I took 2 tablespoons of caprylic acid and had a pronounced herxheimer reaction i.e. it cleaned me out the first time I took it
  • The only probiotic I now take contains patented PreforPro and DE111. The PreforPro is phages - viruses that infect and kill bad bacteria. The DE111 has three types of  friendly bacteria that are compatible with the phages.

My bronchitis was low-grade infection, like a smoker's cough, but I coughed a lot. It was such a low grade infection I couldn't get it treated.

 

Oral zinc is said able to cure plantar warts, so it seems likely able to get rid of other viruses too. It may take a long time.

 

Caprylic acid is reputed to cure candida. I had no idea that I might have candida, but my herx die off was intense. Now I swish and swallow 1 tablespoon daily and my insides are very happy.

 

The probiotic with phages lets the friendly bacteria in the DE111 flourish.  It's best not to take it at the same time of day as other probiotics. These phages might cause a herxheimer die off the first time they are taken, and may attack other probiotics.

Interesting. Thanks

Meditation and exercise work for me. There is evidence that both promote immune system function. Meditation is even better since it requires less willpower; all you have to do is breathe and observe. I sometimes jog, too.

 

I heard Zinc might be good but never tried it. Also garlic.

 

I once took an immunostimulant, pidotimod, for two months, and did not have any infection in that period save a cold from sleeping without a blanket on. But this medication isn't available in many countries including the U.S. It is in Italy and China.

Epicor seems interesting. I personally used it, not much to report about it.
