What Experts Say About Jumping

Beside Fun, Jumping is very good for detoxification


Dr. Teresa Cappello, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon at Loyola University Health System in Illinois says “Bounce houses are a great way to get kids active and it is a great way to prevent obesity” (HealthDay News) Jumping will get your lymph moving (win for detoxification!), oxygenate your cells and give your body a great all-over and gentle work out. This is the deal when it comes to detoxing your body: you need to get your lymph moving. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Unlike our blood, which is pumped around by the heart, the lymph system is totally dependent on exercise to get a move along. <!–more Read article here –>If we don’t get the lymph moving, our cells are left stagnant. They stew in their own waste, starve of nutrients and can lead to a whole host of problems including arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases. Exercise, particularly rebounding, is said to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times. The vertical up and down movement is rebounding is effective because the lymph fluid moves through channels called “vessels” that are filled with one way valves, so the lymph always moves in the same direction. The main lymph vessels run up the legs, up the arms and up the torso. For those of you who like details, this is what jumping on a re bounder each day will do for you:


• Circulate oxygen to your tissues.

• Increases lymphatic circulation, as well as blood flow in the veins of the circulatory system.

• Helps you breathe deeper.

• Normalizes your blood pressure.

• May help combat depression.

• Stimulates the metabolism.

• Promotes muscle tone.

• Increases the activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.

• Lowers elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

• Enhances digestion and elimination processes. All of this, and all you need to do is get your bounce on for 10, 15 or 20 minutes each day.
