Ok, so my family have had a crappy run health wise over the last couple of months. It's literally been one illness after the other. DS has gastro now, DH might have too, and it's just really getting me down. We're usually so healthy!
Hit me with your top immunity boosting tips please! TIA

Apart from lots of fresh fruit and veggies ( I put garlic, ginger and herbs in just about everything!) we take fish oil ( omegas and vitamin D ) and a probiotic ( for gut health) and yes as pp said whenever everyone around us is sick I always do a big batch of chicken soup and we all have a teaspoon of manuka honey
Plantain tea I'll have to try! I drink Roobios and lemon myrtle tea

Go out and play in the dirt and mud. Get a dog or a cat.

honestly OP. .. I don't think you can technically boost your immunity. Some people are just more prone to catching things.
If you have a lower immune system and you play in the dirt it's not going to help.
My daughter is catching some virus nearly all the time. ..I think building immunity is a myth. Playing in the dirt isn't going to build immunity. Why would it? It's dirt?
On the off chance you can I bought that kids inner health plus immune booster for DD. plus trying to eat healthy and exercise. Get out in the fresh air. Turn off air conditioning and heaters. Etc etc.
Sorry you are getting sick all the time. It sucks.

My DS has eaten/played in dirt, dog poo (when I'm not looking I don't encourage him to play with it lol), kisses the dogs and cat you name it since he could crawl, i wash his hands before eating only, have never used hand sanitiser or anything like that. He gets a cold once a year maybe and it's usually mild, has no allergies or anything wrong whatsoever, completely healthy!

But I have the opposite. DD plays with dog. ..kisses the dog too... plays outside etc etc. All the things you mentioned.
Makes no difference. Still gets sick all the time.
Yep she's has some medical issues but playing with all that hasn't made a ounce of difference. Plus I know her blood work is good and she has no deficiencies.
