Ok, so there are many claims out there on what works to boost your immune system. I am truly looking into ways to do this, as Humira knocked me down really bad this last time! I had a slight cold, took my Humira, and got sick as hell, ended up in ER 1 week later with mycoplasma pnemoniae. My lungsa were so bad, and gurgling, and my O2 SATS were as low as 89%!

So, I am interested in doing whatever I can to boost my immune system and avoid that nightmare again.

I am looking into elderberry, etc.

What do you belive is working for you?

Thanks
Deacon

Oh wow.....sad to hear you're going through such a bad illness. It's good they know the strain for proper treatment med-wise.

I learned of Beta Glucan from another member many years ago. The one I use is by Sisu.
I'll try to find the other one suggested through search.
