(NaturalNews) Rebounding is possibly the single most effective exercise for circulating lymph fluid throughout the body. For something that serves such a vital body function, the lymphatic system is hugely overlooked and misunderstood. The lymph nodes are known as the things that swell when we get the flu or maybe cancer, but few seem to realize that the lymphatic system is critically connected to preserving our entire immune function. Lymphatic fluid, circulating throughout our cells and organs, picks up and transports toxins and infectious organisms away, cleansing us from the inside.

The amount of lymphatic fluid circulating throughout our bodies is 4-5 times higher than the amount of blood! What`s somewhat perplexing is that there`s no pump to move it around like our heart pumps our blood. So how does our lymphatic fluid move? Mainly through our normal daily movements, and especially during exercise--the more vigorous, the better.

One of the exercise methods recommended for improving lymphatic function is rebounding-- or bouncing gently on a small in-home trampoline (called a rebounder). Since our lymphatic fluid circulates upward via a network of vessels, through one-way valves, this bouncing action helps push our lymphatic fluid up through these tubes and throughout our bodies. The more it circulates, the healthier it can keep us.

Of course, we`ll also benefit from the cardiovascular workout, but the lymphatic function is just as critical. Without proper circulation through the system and into our detoxifying organs, poisons just . . . sit there. That`s why, when an older person breaks a hip and is bedridden, other problems often arise. It`s not the broken bone: it`s the inactivity that follows. Even the modest movements of independent living (walking, sitting down then standing up, cleaning) are far superior to extended bed rest. Rebounding also helps in the fight against cancer when used in conjunction with other therapies.

Anyone can begin rebounding, if they start slowly and gently. As overall health increases through rebounding, even the elderly can see definite benefits and improved quality of life. There are railings available for rebounders so the elderly or infirm can have something to steady themselves while bouncing gently. (Another safety tip is to always bounce in bare feet to prevent slipping.)

How to Use a Rebounder for Lymphatic Health

The best way to get the increased physical movement and exercise (in a way that`s very easy on your joints and internal connective tissues) is by gently bouncing. Your feet don`t even have to leave the trampoline. Start with a minute or two. Don`t push yourself yet--this isn`t a cardio exercise (although it can build up into one if you desire). Even an older individual might be able to very slowly work their way up to five or more minutes this way. Overall health, energy and vibrancy will increase and eventually you can build up to use the rebounder for longer periods of time. But rest assured, as little as five minutes of rebounding per day is enough to greatly improve lymph circulation.
