Rebounding for Longevity

The best exercise for detoxification is rebounding. That’s jumping up and down on a small one-person trampoline.

Rebounding

Rebounding & Increasing Vitamin D

Your lymph system gets rid off the metabolic waste in your body, but it doesn’t have a pump like your cardiovascular system.  It only moves when YOU move.

SO when you’re sedentary it’s not moving very much, but when you’re walking, when you’re doing physical work, when you’re picking things up, when you’re putting things down, every muscle contraction in your body moves your lymphatic system, even breathing (especially deep Wim Hof breathing).

To stay healthy you need 30 to 60 minutes a day of deliberate, moderate aerobic exercise, like Rebounding.

Rebounding is easy. Anyone can do it and you can do it for a long time without getting tired, because it only requires a gentle bouncing motion where your feet don’t even leave the mat.

But what effect can an easy activity, like half an hour of rebounding, have on your body?

“Not much” is probably what you think, but a well-known 2007 study  found that breast cancer patients who walked 30 minutes a day and ate five or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day, had half the recurrence after 9 years compared to patients who didn’t exercise as much or eat as many fruits and vegetables.

That’s incredible. Anybody can do that!

2014 study of over 4,600 Swedish men with early-stage prostate cancer found that the men who walked or biked every day for 20 minutes or more, had a 30% decreased risk of dying from prostate cancer and a 30% lower risk of dying from any other cause compared to men who were less active.

The bottom line is: If you want to stay healthy, you need to create daily habits that keep you in motion. It doesn’t have to be one long block of exercise. You can break it up any way you want: 10-20 minutes Rebounding in the morning, 10-20 minutes around lunch time and another 10-20 minutes in the evening. Do it while you’re watching TV or rebound outside and fill up on Vitamin D at the same time.

Apart from activating your lymph system, the G-force resistance you experience during Rebounding strengthens your entire musculoskeletal system: your bones, muscles, connective tissue, and even organs.

Just gently bounce on the Rebounder.

Stick to a basic bounce until you get bored and then go all 80s Aerobics or Disco. Anything is allowed!

Ketosis

Ketosis is a metabolic state where the body burns fat for energy instead of sugar.

Some people try to reach ketosis by avoiding carbohydrates in their diet, but another trick is, adding butter or MCT oil or even both to your coffee. It makes your coffee bulletproof and will help your body burn more fat as an energy source.

A ketone level of 0.6 mM* indicates ketosis. Typically, circulating levels of ketones are at ~0.1 mM in the average person after an overnight fast.
Dave Asprey who is the author of the book “Bulletproof Diet”, describes that after drinking a cup of bulletproof coffee, the blood ketone level can reach 0.7mM within 30 minutes.
People on low-carb diets have to restrict their intake of carbohydrates for three days before they can reach the same level.

*mM stands for millimolar. It’s the measuring unit of concentrations expressing the number of moles of the substance (here ketones) present in a defined volume of solution: A 1 millimolar (1 mM) solution contains 1 millimole per litre (1 mmol/l).

Optimum blood ketone levels for nutritional ketosis range from 0.5 to 3.0 mM,
according to Volek and Phinney in their best-selling book “The Art and Science of Low-Carbohydrate Living”.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals in your body by donating an electron to the free radical’s unpaired electron.

If there are no antioxidants present, free radicals take electrons from healthy cells in the body, causing oxidative stress.

The apples above demonstrate how oxidative stress breaks down your cells, causing premature aging and disease.
