Jumping – Good for the Lymph System

Start a free Audible trial today

A video of Tony Robins jumping before going stage on popped up on my U tube feed.   Apparently I had searched for something to do with Tony and now Google was serving up what it thought I wanted.  Nothing like getting advice from my phone : )

But I was intrigued.  Why is he doing this?

Love him or hate him, he is good, very good at what he does.  The reason for his success is that he has honed his skills over time, developing a suite of tools and tricks to help him get into the emotional state that he needs to influence people.

So why jumping?

Turns out that there is an excellent reason for this and benefits are not restricted to super heroes of the self empowerment world.  We can all benefit from this and I will share how I use this drill and a bazaar thing that happened to me recently, but first check out what the experts have to say.

Dave Scrivens, Certified Lymphologist had the following to say about jumping in his article at https://www.wellbeingjournal.com/rebounding-good-for-the-lymph-system/

Extract here:

The body has a built-in need for activation.  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 rebounding [jumping on a therapeutic mini-trampoline] is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times. 

Let me jump in here.  You don’t need a trampoline.  You can jump anywhere or you can skip rope.

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.

The Detoxification Effect of Rebounding

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. The movement performed in rebounding provides the stimulus for a free-flowing system that drains away these potential poisons.

OK so this is where I got really interested.  Will it work if I just bounce a couple of times, say 10 -30 times?  How can I build this into my day.  What is the minimum effective dose as Tim Ferriss would say (I love using this as a lens for everything!)

Read on for more benefits:

The Muscular Effect of Rebounding

James White, Ph.D., director of research and rehabilitation in the physical education department at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), has explained how jumping for health offers a true physical strengthening effect to the muscles.

An advocate of rebounding for athletic conditioning, White uses the rebounder in his rehabilitation program at UCSD. “When you jump, jog, and twist on this [jumping] device, you can exercise for hours without getting tired. It’s great practice for skiing, it improves your tennis stroke, and it’s a good way to burn off calories and lose weight,” says White.

Other benefits 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
  • regular bowel movements to chronically constipated persons.
  • Digestion is improved .

It is important to realize that as you age, your body may become more toxic due to the pollutants in today’s world. It is also important to realize that if you have a disease, your cellular structure is compromised, as your cells are already being robbed of the correct oxygen, mineral and nutrient compounds that they need to stay healthy.

So this is my drill:

Every time I walk downstairs at my home, I jump 10 times = 60 jumps yesterday at home.

Every time I get out of the car – I jump 5 times = 25 jumps.

85 jumps for the day and I feel amazing afterwards, the image of Rocky Balboa comes to mind : )

So last week I got a cold. My usual cold routine is 2 weeks and it drives me crazy. This time it lasted 5 days and I jumped continually while unwell.

Coincidence?

Perhaps, whether it is science or placebo, it is only good for me.

Jumpt to it!

 

 

Jimmy Moore, a prominent and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, has teamed up with Dr. Eric Westman, a practicing internist and nutrition researcher, to bring you one of the most unique books you’ll ever read on this subject, featuring exclusive interviews with twenty-nine of the world’s top experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. If you’re worried about any confusing medical jargon in this book, don’t be—this critical information is broken down for you to grasp what is really important and what is not.

 

Leading health blogger Jimmy Moore and researcher and internist Dr. Eric C. Westman join forces again to explain the powerful therapeutic effects of a ketogenic diet—one that combines a customized carbohydrate restriction, moderation of protein intake, and real food-based fats—which is emerging in the scientific literature as a means for improving a wide range of diseases, from Type 2 diabetes to Alzheimer’s and more. Simply eating a low-carb diet alone isn’t enough, and Moore and Westman tell you why.

Introducing Dr Peter Attia

Start a free Audible trial today

Let me introduce you to Doctor Peter Attia.  I recently listened to a Podcast of the Tim Ferris Show that involved an interview with Peter on their visit to Easter Island. Peter is another Doctor who through researching the causes of heart disease, has been able to understand the impact of diet and the real cause of coronary disease.

This is an extract from his blog. Take 5 minutes to read this extract and then I urge you to go to his page and view the slides in which he takes you step by step through how inflammation occurs.

The extract starts here:

When I’m at a dinner party and someone starts lecturing the table about the perils of saturated fat (or red meat, or eggs, or fill-in-the-blank), I’m at the point – after years of being kicked under the table by my wife – of just asking the “authority” at the table one question:  Why do you believe this is true?

I figure, put the burden of proof on them, right?  This week, and I apologize for how long overdue this post is, I’m going to get into the details of how this country (and many others who followed our lead) came to believe one of the most pervasive myths in the entire field of nutrition.

Ok, I have to jump in here.  This is truly amazing.  The myth that Dr Attia is alluding to is the flawed research of Ancel Benjamin Keys (January 26, 1904 – November 20, 2004). Keys was an American scientist who studied the influence of diet on health. In particular, he hypothesised that saturated fat in the diet is unhealthy and should be avoided.  That is all that it was, a hypothesis!  Today, more and more research is proving this to be wrong. Ok, back to Dr Attia’s post:

To write it all out would require a tome.  In fact, such a tome already exists.  It’s called Good Calories, Bad Calories. But for most people, especially the “authorities” who already “know” the answer, it’s a complex and lengthy book.  Furthermore, it’s not exactly something you can just whip out at a dinner party.

A few weeks ago I gave a talk at the UCSD medical school.  I was asked to give a talk about “ethics.”  While I have no professional training as an ethicist, I still think I have a good idea about what is and is not ethical.  As I’ve learned more and more about this topic, it appears to me that the state of our current nutritional environment, with food policies based on just about everything but rigorous, experimental science, couldn’t make much ethical sense.  I’m pretty sure if Plato, Aristotle, and Nietzsche were still around they’d be disgusted with how we got here.  So, I was happy to take this opportunity to speak with a group of thought leaders on this important topic.

Below is a video combining the audio of my talk with my slide presentation.  It’s about an hour long. But as Bastiat essentially said, if you want to overturn half-truths, you can’t do it with bumper stickers. Hopefully, you’ll find this talk informative and useful for your dinner party discussions.

This is a comprehensive explanation of how narrowing of the arteries actually occurs. The truth behind heart disease is inflammation and saturated fat in the diet is not the issue!

Enjoy this informative talk:

Low Carb v Low Fat

Start a free Audible trial today

The below study confirmed the benefit of a very low carbohydrate diet for fat loss.

A randomised trial comparing a very low carbohydrate diet and a calorie-restricted low-fat diet on body weight and cardiovascular risk factors in healthy women.

See the full study here:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12679447

The outcome:

A very low-carbohydrate diet is more effective than a low-fat diet for short-term weight loss and, over 6 months, is not associated with deleterious effects on important cardiovascular risk factors in healthy women.

The best thing that you can do is to educate yourself. Don’t be fooled by the low-fat high sugar promises. These are the best 2 books that I have found to date. They will change your perspective on food.

Eggs Are The Healthiest Food on The Planet

Start a free Audible trial today

In this article Kris Gunnars BSc provides 6 reasons why Eggs are so good for us:

https://authoritynutrition.com/6-reasons-why-eggs-are-the-healthiest-food-on-the-planet/

They include:

  1.  Eggs are the amongst the most nutritional foods on the planet.
  2.  Eggs improve our cholesterol profile.
  3.  Eggs are loaded with brain food!
  4.  Eggs have the perfect amino acid profile.
  5.  Protect the eyes.
  6.  Help you lose weight.

Intuition kicks in here, eggs are the start of life.  From this little egg, an animal is going to grow.  Would it not seem reasonable that within this most amazingly packaged food, is only going to be good for us?

The team at WebMD weigh into the egg debate in this article….

http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/good-eggs-for-nutrition-theyre-hard-to-beat#

Where they say, with science on our side, we can once again enjoy the wonderfully nutritious egg. Along with milk, eggs contain the highest biological value (or gold standard) for protein.
One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids.

The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults.

And brain development and memory may be enhanced by the choline content of eggs.

But the full health benefits of eggs can only be realised if you store them properly — in the refrigerator — and cook them thoroughly to kill any potential bacteria.

This is the one packaged food that you should eat!
