I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the nutrition/supplement forum but oh well: I seem to have pretty bad luck catching things at the gym despite having a good immune system. My question is how do most people avoid catching bugs going around and what not when rolling around with other sweaty human beings as a hobby? My first day back at the gym last year I ended up catching staph AND H.pylori. What luck! It doesn't help that my gym is 45 minutes away from my house to where I can shower. I'm going to start supplementing with natural herbs like garlic, astragalus, olive leaf extract, ginger root etc. to try and help keep all the garbage going around away. So in summary, what precautions does everyone use here to avoid viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasite infections?
