lymphatic system is the metabolic garbage can of the body. It rids you
of toxins such as dead and cancerous cells, nitrogenous wastes, fat,
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.
the arterial system, the lymphatic system does not have its own pump.
It has no heart muscle to move the fluid around through its lymph
vessels. There are just three ways to activate the flow of lymph away
from the tissues it serves and back into the main pulmonary circulation.
Lymphatic flow requires muscular contraction from exercise and
movement, gravitational pressure, and internal massage to the valves of
supplies all three methods of removing waste products from the cells
and from the body. Then arterial blood enters the capillaries in order
to furnish the cells with fresh tissue fluid containing food and oxygen.
The bouncing motion effectively moves and recycles the lymph and the
entire blood supply through the circulatory system many times during the
course of the rebounding session.
is a lymphatic exercise. As stated earlier, it has the same effect on
your body as jumping rope, but without any jarring effect to the ankles,
knees, and lower back that comes from hitting the ground. Better than
rope jumping, however, the lymphatic channels get put under hydraulic
pressure to move fluids containing waste products of metabolism around
and out of the body through the left subclavian vein
