If you’re like most people, you’ve been paying attention to what’s happening with coronavirus.

Over 300,000 people have taken ill as of this writing and, depending on who you ask, the death rate ranges from 0.3 to 1 to 3% (one of the latest studies pins this number right in the middle at 1.4%).

This makes it slightly more deadly than the flu, and significantly more deadly for those who are over 60 years old.

While it’s easy to blow the situation out of proportion (and the media firestorm isn’t helping), it’s still wise to do everything you can to shore up your immune system in times like these.

You’re probably already taking preventative measures like washing your hands, avoiding large crowds, and so forth, but you’re still exposed to thousands of different germs every day (and possibly, COVID-19). That’s not to mention the thousands of other seasonal diseases that sweep around the world every year like a swarm of locusts.

And if one of these germs manages to sneak past your guard, it’s up to your immune system to knock them out before they make you sick.

That raises the question: can you do anything to boost your immune system?

If so, which methods work and which don’t?

You’ll learn the answers to all of those questions and more in this podcast.

So, let’s start with discussing what the immune system is and how it works, and then we’ll get to how to strengthen it and how to prevent and quickly overcome illnesses.
