General health maintenance

This means doing all of the things normally recommended for leading a healthy life: proper nutrition and nutritional support; adequate rest; avoidance of alcohol, smoking, drugs and unnecessary stress; exercise and fresh air. In short, all the things our mothers always recommended. Taken alone, good health maintenance won't prevent progression to AIDS or cure it, but it will give each person the best fighting chance he or she has. A good defense builds upon a solid foundation.
