  1.  Vitamin A:  good sources include carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and cantaloupe.  (Vitamin A gives Vitamin C the power to do its job.)
  2.   Vitamin C:  good sources include lemons, oranges, broccoli, and potatoes.  
  3.   Garlic  (A natural antibiotic.)
  4.   No dieting.  (Your immune relies on fat to fight illness, and dieting also puts strain on the body.)
  5.  Healthy fats:  good sources include eggs, mayonnaise, avocado, olive oil, cream cheese, and sour cream. 
  6.   No sugar.  (Each tablespoon of white sugar knocks out your immune system for ten minutes.)
  7.   Drink lots of water. 
  8.   Get lots of sleep.  (Your immune system works twice as well when you’re sleeping as when you’re awake.)
