Rebounding and the Lymphatic System

Apr 4, 2016

The Lymphatic System bathes every cell, carrying nutrients in and removing waste products. Think of it as your body’s natual detox system. The lymph fluid moves through channels in your body that are filled with one-way valves so it always moves in the same direction. The main lymph vessels run up the legs, up the arms, and up the torso.

However this system, like other body functions, needs exercise to keep it active and working efficiently. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste, lose their efficiency and sometimes stop working at all. This can cause the cells to starve for nutrients and can lead to degenerative diseases and risks of other diseases such as cancer.
The best type of exercise to keep the Lymphatic System in tip-top working order is Rebounding. Rebounding is jumping vertically on a mini-trampoline). Vigorous exercise via rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15-30 times. This is because jumping vertically helps pump the lymph flow, which travels vertically up your body.

Some benefits of rebounding include:

  • 20 minutes of rebounding = 1 hour of running for cardiovascular workout
  • Easy on the bones and joints (when using a therapeutic rebounder)
  • Rebounding strengthens the heart muscle
  • Profound body detoxification is possible

By working against constant gravitational pressure while bouncing, you resist Earth’s pull. Your resistance is subtle, but it builds cellular strength. Rebounding’s alternating weightlessness and double gravity produce a pumping action that pulls out waste products from the cells and forces into them oxygen and nutrition from the bloodstream.

Here at Beechcroft Retreats we encourage the use of Rebounding and during your stay we can help you properly use the trampoline to minimise the risk of injuring yourself as well as getting the best benefit from rebounding.

Under-active Thyroid and Weight gain

People with an under-active thyroid tend to have a low base metabolic rate. This is a leading cause of weight gain as the body can't burn fat quickly enough and the excess is stored. This can also cause dieters to gain weight as their metabolism drops when not eating...
