FEATURE: Flush Lymph Fluid from your Cells with Rebounding Exercise

So what is rebounding?

“Rebounding is a unique exercise and has huge benefits to the lymph system by flushing dead cells from the body and supplies oxygen to the cells,”explains TheJuiceMaster.com.

This site lists rebounding as “the second best form of exercise after swimming” and says that rebounding is even endorsed by NASA.

It was the Living Foods Institute (LFI) in Atlanta, GA, that first introduced me to the concept of rebounding.

After I learned that this activity was part of their 10-Day Healthy Lifestyle program, my dear friend, Kate Mitchell, Living Foods Institute educator, generously loaned her rebounder to me so I could get a jumpstart in rebounding before I spent 10 days at LFI. Kate even encouraged me to carry her fold-up rebounder from Florida to Atlanta so that I would be able to rebound beyond the hours I spent at LFI.

After returning home from Atlanta, Kate’s rebounder stayed at my home for a little while longer. My son and any other child who entered our home was naturally drawn to this piece of fun equipment that looks like a mini trampoline.

“Time to take a cue from kids-jump!” says Don Bennett in his book, “How to have the BEST odds of Avoiding Degenerative Disease.”

Bennett lists “skipping, ‘spirited walking’, and rebounding” as “best choices” for circulating lymph fluid. According to Bennett, while running is good for this purpose, “over time it can take a toll on your joints (and on your heart, believe it or not).”

Why it’s our job to move our lymph fluid to the “dump”

While our blood automatically and continuously circulates throughout the body, our lymph fluid (the system”s waste fluid) does not. However, considering it is vital for good health for our lymph fluid to circulate, what is your guess as to why the body doesn’t automatically do this for us like it does with our blood?

My theory: What it boils down to is yet another key indicator that the body was created to MOVE!

And while the body naturally does many functions for us, well, in some areas of our health, we have to simply “meet” the body half way. And so is the case with moving our lymph fluid.

“As you move around, the lymph fluid is moved from the cells, to the lymph nodes, and on to the dump,” says Bennett. “But if you don’t move enough-if you are less active than children — your metabolic garbage container isn’t being emptied on a regular basis. And that can spell trouble (lingering waste products are a major contributor to degenerative disease).”

The science of rebounding

It’s such a beautiful and simple science behind how rebounding works, and Bennet explains it best.

“At the top of each bounce,” he says, “you are momentarily weightless, and at the bottom of each bounce, you are actually resisting the Earth’s pull more than you usually do. This alternating weightlessness and multiplied gravity produces a pumping action which pulls out waste products from the cells, and forces into them oxygen and nutrients from the bloodstream.”

It’s as simple as that, folks.

And, it’s so simple to use a rebounder, too. Some rebounders come with a stabilizing bar for those who want support when bouncing. Keep in mind, though, not all rebounders are created equal-the less expensive ones are believed to do more harm than good. You will get what you pay for when it comes to a rebounder purchase.

I have my eye on the Cellerciser!

The convenience of rebounding

Rebounding easily fits into all types of schedules.

It’s not necessary to carve out a full 30 minutes or an hour to reap the wonderful benefits this activity has to offer. Simply bouncing on the rebounder for a few moments at a time is effective.

I believe keeping your rebounder in an area of your home that you use or pass by often is key to using it often. That way, it will “call” out to you several times a day.

Just think, if you jumped on your rebounder for say, five minutes, four times a day, that adds up to 20 minutes of rebounding per day. However, if you want a full 20-minute rebounding sequence, there are DVDs available to guide you through that process.

If your work requires you to sit for long periods of time at a computer or such, consider using your rebounder for healthy computer breaks.

Rebounding to clean up the world

I just got a thought-imagine if everyone in the world who steps outside of the workplace to take a cigarette break took a rebounding break instead! We’d be significantly on our way to cleaning up more bodies and this earth at the same time!

I now envision a world of folks juicing and jumping!

Don’t delay, go have your juicing and rebounder bouncing fun today!

    Q: Is black cohosh good for clearing out the lymph system? My doctor says my tests are all normal but I've had painful armpit lymph nodes now for 7 weeks! I haven't had anything like this since the 80's when I had mononucleosis. I am a diet and exercise controlled type 2 diabetic. I'm also wondering if the ibuprofen I take for sciatica has triggered this weird reaction. The doctor keeps saying my tests are all fine but I know my glands are unhappy. I also am just starting menopause. I am about to go on a 3 week detox. Do you suggest any herbs?

    A:

    Black Cohosh is a great female tonic herb but if you want a great lymph cleansing herb, you should try LOBELIA, RED ROOT, WILD INDIGO BARK, CLEAVERS, GOLDENSEAL, ECHINACEA, or MULLEIN LEAF.

    You should consider detoxifying your body. Please give our Full Body Cleanse a try. It can provide a myriad of benefits for you and your body.

    Q: I dicovered I had a swollen lymph node from my doctor who told me to take vitamin c. the lymph is still swollen; it will go down from time to time but not completely. what should I take? Also I have fibroids tumors and indigestion. I take TUMS like it's candy. HELP!

    A:

    I strongly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX. FBD is the Formula #1 and it addresses the lymphatic system. Make sure you only use natural deodorant as well; commercial brand deodorant/antiperspirants cause lymph nodes to swell up. We list alternative products in our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL.

    Q: I have swelling of the lymph glands (I assume that there called lymph glands) in my face on the side, in front of my ears. What is that a sign of? and how do I treat it?

    A:

    Q: I am very much aware of herbs ayurvedic and regular from a child. What makes your product lets say for the lymph and blood work better than another brand. Lets say it has the same key ingredients that is specifically for lymph and blood. Why would you need 25 herbs in a blend opposed to just the main 3 for the specific organ or purpose. I am so tired of trying everything, and want to be on a trusted regimen. I already prepared oppose to me buying each herb single and mixing it myself. My goal as a healer is to be well rounded in all the blending of herbs for specific uses. The best place to start the healing process is within yourself and I have been curious about Dherbs.

    A:

    I mean, why only use the top 3 herbs available when so many other good herbs (i.e. alterative herbs, which are good for the blood) exist and are available? Why shortchange the people? Why not be unique? Why not give people the best BLOOD herbs from Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Native American Medicine, Traditional African Medicine, Traditional European Medicine, etc.? If you take the best herbs from around the world and use in your formulations and compounds, it makes a statement that your products are indeed truly for humanity. Who else is doing this? Who else even thinks like this? Our formulas contain many exotic herbs that are very expensive (for other herbalists and manufacturers) and we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to get and provide the BEST for the people (customer), especially if those exotic herbs are available and not curtailed by government regulations (which many are). And in addition to above, providing these unique herbal formulations and compounds for a very economical and reasonable cost. To be the BEST formula, the formula would have to contain the BEST organ-gland specific herbs from around the world. Now THIS, is what makes Dherbs.com unique, at least in my opinion. However, the products speak for themselves. We are the BEST and provide the BEST!

    Q: I just got finished the Full Body Detox, and feeling good. But I still have the issue I was hoping the detox would take care of. I seem to have some swelling or puffiness under my ear; it seems to be the mucus gland, and or the lymph nodes by my jawbone near my ear, in the morning it always feels like there?s water in my ear. What would u suggest, I was thinking about the parasite cleanse, and I still have some sinus issues. I'm in MD and would like to get an ear coning cleaning, a foot detox, and a colonic, do u know of places in MD, or D.C.? Thanks again.

    A:

    Glad to hear your detox went well. Sounds like a lot of mucus buildup in the ear area. I suggest ear coning and lymphatic massage. Herb-wise, give the Parasite and Worm Kit and regimen a try; for sinus problems I recommend Sinus Formula and Mucus Buster. The Foot Detox and a colonic will do you wonders. However, I don't know of any places or practitioners of such therapies. However, a Dherbs resource is coming soon to help in situations like this. You may be able to get help at a natural foods store or Whole Foods Market where they have boards (message boards) where people list a lot of things.

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: Yeah it does seem like it would be a lot of pills to take to do a Full Body Cleanse one time...plus the longer term would probably be more effective I would think. I think I have just one more question here and that would be about the Anti-viral kit and the Parasite & Worm Cleanse. As I read they go hand in hand the Anti-viral Kit cleans up blood and Parasite & Worm Cleanse cleans up organs and tissues if I read it right and remember it correctly. My question is which would be first?? My guess would be clean up the blood first since that is constantly pumping around nasties if it?s already full of poisons. The body can only move so much out at one time and if the blood is full of poisons it would be hard for your body to get the poisons out of the organs and transport it out of the body. I?m no doctor but it seems to me the blood is what transports stuff around the body....so am i right to think that the viral blood should be the first to clean up? Then parasites in the organs and tissues...and then move onto cleaning up the acidic deposits thru our the body. ...maybe I should be asking what you would do first? Do you ship ups or fedex?

    A:

    Yes, aim for the blood first. But know this, all of our kits are going to cleanse the blood and work on the organs. Some are just more geared toward certain organs and systems, that's all.

    Personally, we would recommend to aim for the parasites and worms, to facilitate future healing with another kit. Regardless of the kit, healing is going to take place.

    Call Dherbs directly to inquire about shipping with Fed-Ex or UPS. Normal Dherbs shipping is via U.S. Postal Service.

    Q: Dear herbalist, I would like to know if it's alright for me to alternate cod liver oil pill (omega 3) in between taking the blood and lymph cleanse. I use to have beautiful skin until spring of this year. Also I want to know if taking teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil is good for healing me of what I believe may be vitiligo, tenea vesicle or eczema (dermatitis). PLEASE HELP.

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.
