Does anyone have any good tips for avoiding catching all the nasty bugs going around? i'm a teaching assistant and my immune system isn't brilliant so I am always catching them. I try to follow hygiene guidelines and take a good vitamin supplement with my prenatals but is there anything else I can do to boost my immunity?

i'm very regimented with my vitamin intake. i like emergenc packets they are great tasting and and easy way to get high doses of vitamin c. i like esberitox echinacea by enyzmatic therapy and immune defense tonic by herb pharma. these are my favorites and i (knock on wood) haven't been sick in some time. i shop with momEmineral and get my stuff fast. i'm prego again so i'm doing my "before baby boost" with sound formulas....i was glowing last time! stay healthy and don't take the kids to chucky disease/cheese....lol..

This was the first year that I didn't get something. I was crazy about the hand washing and I kept a sanitizer in my purse so anytime I was in a store or shook someone's hand I could use it. I work with the public so I was using it all the time. I think it helped.
