UPDATE 2.23.24: This is my “Start Your Day” supplement threesome for immunity.
UPDATE 10.30.23: It’s virus season again, and it’s a good time to reread the information below offered by Bill Sardi on building up the immune system. Also, watch the video below by Dr. Joseph Mercola on how vitamins D3 and K2 work together.

At LewRockwell.com, Bill Sardi explains some techniques for maximizing the body’s natural immunity. He writes (abridged):
A B-1 deficiency (aka beriberi) can mimic all of the symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus (chronic cough, breathlessness, loss of sense of smell, fever, etc., a problem that modern medicine is oblivious to. Vitamin B1 as benfotiamine is strongly recommended, particularly for coffee, tea and alcohol drinkers. These vitamin-deficiency forms of disease are mis-categorized as COVID-19. Don’t take vitamin B1 at same time as alcohol, coffee or tea.
The virus cannot replicate without a high-arginine environment (chocolates and nuts are high in arginine). The antidote is lysine, a counter-balancing amino acid rich in cheese and available as an inexpensive dietary supplement.
Antibodies only last a short while. For long-term immunity, zinc supplementation would be in order, ~30 mg for adults (not more), and preferably with selenium to release this trace mineral from its binding protein.
Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, unequivocally activates immune defenses and along with vitamin A normalizes the immune response. This minimizes the so-called cytokine (sigh-toe-keen) storm. A recent report calls for 8000 units of vitamin D/day, which represents around 30-60 minutes of direct mid-day full-body sun exposure. Health authorities made a mistake in their calculations how much vitamin D is needed and only recommend 400-2000 units/day.
If breathlessness does occur, you don’t want to run to the hospital if you don’t need to. It would help every family to have a nebulizer handy. Nebulizers equate with having a respiratory hospital at home.
This device produces a fine mist that you breathe and releases viral particles from sticking to the wall of your bronchus and lungs.
You can nebulize with hydrogen-peroxide which kills off the virus without harming healthy tissues. Follow directions provided by Dr. Tom Levy in his free ebook RAPID VIRUS RECOVERY.
In lieu of a nebulizer, jump in a hot shower and breathe in the mist.
