The average American adult suffers two to three colds a year; the average child has as many as nine. That adds up to over a billion colds a year in the U.S. alone. Although there is no cure for the common cold, conventional or otherwise, the question is how do you prevent infection and speed up recovery?

The role of the immune system is to protect the body against illness, whether from viruses, bacteria, fungi or other pathogens. There are a variety of herbs with long traditions of strengthening the immune system.
