Am I back in the vicious circle?

My love and I had a concert date the other weekend. My favorite punk rapper was in town and I have had the tickets since the first day they were on sale. You can say I was really looking forward to it, lol.
The concert was incredible, full of energy and vibe which charge your batteries instantly. However, I must post some comment on errors that made the experience a little unpleasant.
First of all, promoters should have considered a better venue – too many people at too little space. I know concerts are known for zero private space, bruises all over your body and losing your buddy in the crowd.  Believe me, I am used to it. This was extreme though.
Even though there were seated places, the majority was right in front of the stage. You can imagine how it could look like. I, with my 5 feet 4 inches, was squashed before the gig even started.
I would have survived being squeezed but closing doors at a covered venue with no air condition in summer is unforgivable. I do not want to imagine what could have happened in that heat with no way to get in the middle of the crowd. What’s more, we all created this one common odor no one would buy if it was bottled.
Anyway, the artist was amazing. He is one crazy mofo who does it right. My love and I have enjoyed every second of it. Even this terrible cold I am fighting with now, it was all worth it.
Soaked in sweat, deafened but smiling we tried to catch the last bus home after the gig. It was windy and it rained the time we went outside. Despite the fact I had an umbrella and an extra, clean and dry sweatshirt I ended up sick.

I feel like I have tried everything to boost my immune system. I do my best to eat healthy – veggies, fruits, have it all fresh (well, as fresh as you can have it from supermarket), exercise regularly, running, avoiding processed food, vitamin pills, etc. I am even trying to cure myself in a natural way – herbs, teas, lemon and ginger, garlic… And nothing seems to help. Therefore I am forced to swallow the pills…

Before last summer I was not sick for 2 years straight. That was the time when I have started my route of getting healthier, workouts and everything. I would really appreciate any tips of how to get my immune system back on track… The last thing I want to fall back to that vicious circle of being sick for a week every month.
