everything that you need to know is all clearly stated by yahoo answerers.

Immune deficiency treatment often depends largely on the cause as diagnosed by a medical professional. For serious immune system diseases such as HIV, drug treatment will almost always be necessary.

If other causes such as dietary or lifestyle-related factors are determined to be at fault, treatment will involve a serious restructuring of eating and living habits, aimed at righting the causes of the immune system problem.

Therefore it is very important to see a specialist to have your immune deficiency diagnosed properly. Try to provide as much background information on your condition as possible so that your doctor can better understand your condition. Blood tests will also likely be required to determine if your condition is the result of an autoimmune disease.

Antibiotics treat bacterial infections when the immune system alone couldn’t mount an adequate response against immune disorders. Therefore a strong and healthy immune system should negate the need for any antibiotics in the majority of situations; therefore it is so critical to always consider strengthening the immune system by taking preventative measures, to help avoid unnecessary medication.

Natural Cures

Natural and herbal remedies can provide much-needed assistance in strengthening the immune system and getting the body’s natural defense mechanisms in top shape. Holistic medicine recognizes that illness is not caused by viruses and bacteria, but by weakened immune systems.

Echinacea purpurea is a Native American herb that has become famous for its antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. It is an excellent immune system tonic that boosts the body’s immunity by stimulating the production of immune cells.

Another commonly used herb is Astragalus membranaceous (also called 'huang qi'), which has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine to tone the ‘qi’ or life force that we know as the immune system. Astragalus is an ideal remedy for anyone who is prone to recurrent infections such as the common cold, as it is able to increase the body’s resistance and immune response to illness.

Viscum album is commonly known to enhance the immune-stimulating properties of other ingredients, and it encourages repair of damaged cells.

Other natural ingredients with immune boosting properties are Inula helenium, Withania somnifera, Hypoxis Rooperi (extract of African Potato), Mentha piperita, Solidago virgaurea, Crataegus oxycanthoides, Schizandra chinensis, and Olea europea (extract of Olive leaf). All of these powerful and organic ingredients are found in nature’s medicine chest and will go a long way in helping you strengthen your immune system against illness, disease, and infection.

The ingredients are specifically chosen for their ability to address the root causes and not the symptoms in isolation. Remember to source herbal remedies from a reputable company, as therapeutic dosage and ingredient quality is important when using herbal medicines.

How to boost your imune system:

1. Get enough sleep. We need to rest our body in a leisurely manner and avoid stress for at least six to eight hours daily.

2. You must drink plenty of water. By drinking six to eight glasses of water daily, this will help to flush out toxins from our bodies.

3. You must eat well. We should increase organic fresh fruits and vegetables and multi-grain meals in our daily diet and cut down on frozen, processed and fatty food. Besides that, we should reduce the intake of animal protein rich food. Quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption. Do not overeat or force yourself to eat more when you are full. You should always avoid heavy meals and drinks in your daily diet.

4. You must practice good hygiene by washing your hands after visiting the toilets and before meals. When we wash our hands, we also get rid of germs that might infect us with illnesses.

5. You need to exercise to boost your immune system. Exercise is good for health. It helps to strengthen your bones and muscles, and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.

6. You should control our emotions as it will affect our immune system. Person with hot-tempered character will always have relatively low immune system. Negative emotions such as angry, envy, hate, selfish, fear, stress, panic; depress, disappointed, dismay, sad, hopeless, pessimistic and etc. are related to low immune system.

Ask your doctor to prescribe a blood purifier tonic . Also take karela , Nimpatta fry etc. daily

I also refuse pills, but I am smarter than you; I do not even go to doctors. I spend that money on health food.

eat green leafy vegetables, fresh seasonal fruits like papaya, grapes, bananas, orange and guavas to name a few. And most importantly drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily to flush out unnecessary acids from the system.

Start exercising regularly. You can start yoga also. Also drink two teaspoon of Aloe Vera Juice with water and a teaspoon of Chavanprash daily before going to sleep.
