Hello and thanks for posting from India.
The only reliable way to increase your CD4 count is with ART medications. Assuming that you're adherent to your medications, and hopefully, with the knowledge of having an undetectable viral load, the best thing to do is to continue taking your medications.
I'd suggest looking at your CD4 percentage- does this show a decline or not? If not, then I would be looking for factors that might be decreasing your total WBC or lymphocyte count (such as infections or other medications), rather than a isolated decline in CD4 totals.
Hope that's helpful, BY
