The unsolved mysteries of Tokay Gecko

Many of us surprised about some stories about Tokay gecko locally known in the Philippines as Toko. Maybe you will laugh when you will heard some people wants to buy this small creature worth thousand or millions of dollars.

Do you know what are the health benefits of tokay? Some people say and claim that Tokay Gecko can cure AIDS. According to World Health Organization (WHO) there is no cure for AIDS as this time. The wild-spread rumor about Tokay’s power of curing Aids is not supported with medical studies. Most people are saying that the Tokay Gecko used in medical studies because of the chemical that may help prevent or cure the spread of HIV. That's the reason the price of the Tokay gecko rise up. But it depends on how heavy this animal, because the bigger, the better it is effective.

Another so called benefit of tokay in medicine is that it has anti-tumor effects. Some experts from China develop drugs for the treatment of tumors from organs of the gecko, because the body is able to suppress the growth and the addition of tumor cells. A team led by a professor in the University of China, shows that the active substance that gecko has improve the immune response of an organism, but also induces tumor cell apoptosis to die naturally and suppress the growth of VEGF bFGF protein and, the factor endowments of developing cancer. Their findings were published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology. Also Tokay Gecko is used effectively as an alternative treatment to remove malignant tumors, especially tumors of the digestive system, ie surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Gecko has anti-tumor effects in vitro and in vivo induction of apoptosis of tumor cells and down-regulation of protein expression of VEGF and bFGF may be contributed to the antitumor effects of Gecko.

Tokay gecko give some used in medicine it has antibodies useful for human beings to neutralize toxins in the body known as an allergy to some of the classification of all types of skin allergies or respiratory allergies such as asthma, hives, scabies, eczema and others. There is Gecko asthma capsule can be taken daily to relieve asthma and cough. Some people also believe that the gecko can cure impotence, improve male sexual function and increase stamina.

5 Immune System Destroyers

Our body is home of trillion bacteria most of them are living in the intestines some of the
bacteria are bad and good here are the 5 Immune System Destroyers

1-      Lack of sleep

When you sleep your body produces the hormone melatonin, and this causes your white blood cell production to increase. These white blood cells attack and kill the unfriendly bacteria in your gut.

White blood cells also increase production of T cells and natural killer cells, which both also destroy bad bacteria.

So when you don't get a full 8 hours of sleep (and VERY few people do these days), you're missing out on your body's natural nighttime attack against bad bacteria... so you automatically have more harmful bacteria in your gut.

2- Stress attacking your intestines

Scientists now pretty much agree that the mind and body are are connected. There is no clearer evidence of this than the relationship between stress and your gut.

For example, just think of the last time you got a stomach ache or butterflies in your stomach when you were nervous.

Chronic stress attacks the protective mucosal lining of your intestines. Stress makes it so they can't fight off unfriendly bacteria and other pathogens like E-coli and salmonella. So the bad flora take over and make you a candidate for leaky gut syndrome.
Since we ALL deal with stresses in our lives, many times on a daily basis, this is happening inside all of us, every day.

3- Chlorinated water

Chlorinated water (which includes the tap water that comes out of most home faucets) kills the beneficial bacteria in your intestinal tract.

This is bad because unless you have enough healthy bacteria in your intestines, the harmful bacteria can easily take over your intestinal walls.

In addition, chlorinated water also contains carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) that harm your immune system function. Don't drink tap water if you can avoid it.

4- Antibiotics

Although the importance of antibiotics cannot be questioned, they not only kill the infection-causing bacteria in your body, but they kill your good bacteria as well. The nature of the beast.

This means that after a round of antibiotics, your gut flora is in a shambles and the bad bacteria typically end up crowding out the good.

This compromises your immune system and makes you susceptible to getting another infection. This will lead to another course of antibiotics and even MORE harmful bacterial overgrowth.

Most of us at one time or another have gone through this vicious cycle of repeated infections and courses of antibiotics. Now you know why it happens.

5- Less-than-daily bowel movements

There are many causes of this. The biggest is diet. If you don't eat enough fiber-rich alkaline-creating foods, you're an excellent candidate for constipation.

But there are also many people who, for their whole lives, they never have had daily BMs. Regardless of why, it's dangerous.

Wastes that are not eliminated daily creates the perfect breeding ground for harmful bacterial overgrowth in your colon. These toxins are then absorbed into your bloodstream and cause inflammation and pain throughout your body.
