There is no given amount of training that can keep you heathy as everyone is different.

I train 4 days a week mon,tis, thurs,fri and normally 1-1 1/2 hours and I am very rarely sick.

For some people traing this much is a sickness in its self. So you need to work out for yourself what works best without overtraing and causing injury to yourself but as you would put it keeping yourself heathy.
