The lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is the metabolic garbage can of the body.
It rids you of toxins such as dead and cancerous cells, nitrogenous wastes, infectious viruses, heavy metals, and other assorted junk cast off by the cells.

Yet the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move.

Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation that contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases.

Vigorous exercise such as jumping is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.

Vertical motion workouts such as rebounding and jump-roping are much different and much more beneficial and efficient than horizontal motion workouts, such as jogging or running.

You must activate the flow of lymph away from the tissues it serves and back into the main pulmonary circulation. Lymphatic flow requires muscular contraction from (1) exercise and movement, (2) gravitational pressure, and (3) internal massage to the valves of lymph ducts.
Rebounding supplies all three methods of removing waste products from the cells and from the body.

The gentle bounce of rebounding is effective in returning natural, regular bowel movements to chronically constipated persons. The steady bounce sets up a pulsating rhythm transmitted by the nervous system to the brain area responsible for regulating the intestinal system, which reestablishes one’s rhythmical bowel activity. Digestion is improved as well.
