The lymphatic system goes mostly unnoticed until a problem arises. So then, exactly WHAT is the lymphatic system? In a nutshell, it's a hardworking vessel system that removes excess fluids such as pathogens, toxins, and cancer cells from tissues. It also absorbs protein and gives it to the blood.

Because you have three times more lymphatic system than blood and there literally is no pump for the lymphatic system, it needs your help to get it moving. One of the most beneficial things you can do is to rebound (aka: bouncing on a mini-trampoline). Rebounding acts as a gentle strengthener to your entire body without the stress to joints or adrenal system. Anyone can do it (your feet don't even have to leave the trampoline) and rebounders are inexpensive and reasonably compact.

Not only is it wonderful exercise, rebounding promotes incredible circulation to your one-way lymphatic system. Start slow and low ~ for as little as 2 minutes per day while keeping your feet on the bouncer or just lifting your heels. You can increase your times per day along with boosting the amount of time per session. Slowly, over time, begin to raise your knees into a high step while moving the opposite arm up....this move will come naturally. Working towards a jump, if you are able, is a great goal to have.

There is a large connection between the lymphatic system and the liver which, in turn, affects your entire internal system. Maintaining a healthy liver is key to overall good health but if you experience a chronic disease, chances are your liver needs a little help. The good news is that the liver has the ability to regenerate if given the chance. Beginning a rebounding program will give you and your body the opportunity to achieve fantastic health.
