Is it possible to "boost your immune system"?

I've commented and flagged some of them, but I think all of them have some issues, but not all of them need deletion.

    I note: This is the tenth oldest question on Skeptics.SE, from the private Beta! It shouldn't be too surprising the answers don't follow the community standards that have evolved over the years since. – Oddthinking Oct 16 '18 at 5:21

    Just to emphasize Oddthinking's point for users that arrived later on this site, at that point we didn't require references for answers and we didn't require notability for questions. The Skeptics rules as we know them now didn't exist. – Mad Scientist Oct 16 '18 at 19:35

    Also for reference: we keep these questions for historical reasons, but there's no need to fix them. Especially there's no need for moderator action if a user merely disagrees with an answer, or thinks it should be different. – Sklivvz Oct 17 '18 at 16:32
