Dear Tina
Basically you need to eat a diet that is rich in protective nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and bioflavonoids (fresh fruit, vegetables) and protein (meat, fish, eggs and milk and dairy products) and energy (mono- and polyunsaturated oils/margarine and unprocessed starches, grains and cereals) . It is also an idea to take additional supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids (Salmon oil capsules) and probiotics (use Intestiflora or Intestiforte which you can buy at a health shop). Getting sufficient rest and doing very gentle exercise such as going for slow walks in the fresh air will also help your system to fight back.
