reduce pain in the meantime.
And let's face facts! FMS sufferers can be sedentary people on many days. Research has shown that inactive people wipe out up to 80 percent of the mitochondria in their muscle cells. Without these abundant power stations, the energy generating capacity of the body is compromised and can't be remedied. More
importantly, you can't heal without these energy producing factories, and FMS patients can't make the energy that is needed due to the limitations of the chronic illness.
Only endurance exercise produces mitochondria new growth. In fact, it can resurrect dormant ones. Adding more mitochondria will result in more abundant energy and stamina. While it doesn't happen overnight,
exercise will make the body and brain more functional.
If you've been utilizing the Take Back your Health section of this blog, you've probably noted that exercise makes a huge impact on recovery. It weighs right up there with dietary intake. But what can you do on those days you have flare-ups and just can't get outdoors? I have found the Urban Rebounder Trampoline does the trick.
Benefits of the Urban Rebounder
Rebounding tones the glandular system to increase the output of the thyroid
gland. The pituitary and the adrenals- that help to restore energy.
NOURISHES THE HEART:
By strengthening the heart muscle, rebounding allows the resting heart to beat
less often. Each beat becomes more powerful and sends out a greater surge of
blood around the body to nourish its 60 trillion cells.
Rebounding encourages collateral circulation-the formation of new branch blood
vessels that distribute blood to the heart. This is helpful when there is a
lack of nutrition to the tissues as a result of impairment of the main blood flow.
FIGHTS HEART DISEASE:
Rebounding holds off the incidence of cardiovascular disease.
BOOSTS RED BLOOD CELLS:
Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow of the
production of red blood cells. The red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients
to the tissues of the body and also help remove carbon dioxide in them.
Rebounding establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the
tissues and the oxygen made available. CIRCULATES OXYGEN. Rebounding
circulates more oxygen to the tissues-and where there is oxygen there cannot be
AIDS MUSCLE PERFORMANCE:
Rebounding helps fluid move easily within the body, thus helping muscle
performance and lightening the load required of the heart.
AIDS LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION:
Rebounding helps the Lymph fluids circulate throughout the entire body-which
acts as your body’s internal vacuum cleaner.
ENHANCES DIGESTION AND ELIMINATION PROCESS:
The gentle bounce exercise of rebounding has been exceedingly effective in
returning natural, regular bowel movements to chronically constipated individuals.
Rebounding expands the capacity for fuel storage, resulting in extra
BUILDS ALKALINE RESERVE:
Rebounding provides an addition to the alkaline reserve of the body which may be
of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
DELIVERS MUSCLE PAIN RELIEF:
Rebounding offers relief from neck and back pain, from headaches and from other
pains caused by the lack of use of the various joints and muscles of the body.
BRINGS ON BETTER SLEEP:
Even very light, gentle rebounding allows for better and easier relaxation and sleep.
STOPS PREMATURE AGING:
Rebounding can actually reverse, prevent, or diminish the hardening of the
arteries. By conquering the ultimate pathology, you will keep your mind alert,
skin smooth, skeleton flexible, libido intact, kidneys functioning, blood
circulation, liver detoxifying, enzyme systems alive, hold memory intact, and
avoid all systems of the aging process
How to Begin a Rountine
When was the last time you bounced on a ball or the likes and felt the immediate draw back to your childhood? There is something about bouncing that lets out the inner child in us all. With the Urban Rebounder you have a stabilizer bar that enables you to bounce lightly and effortlessly. To begin, brace yourself by holding onto the bar. Allow your legs to relax slightly at the knees.
Bounce for 20 jumps
Bounce for 20 jumps
Add more jumps as your body begins to acclimate to the equipment. You can add a third and fourth repetition as your body strengthens. But, remember; do not overdo it at any time. Too much can cause a flare-up. Just enough will offer pain relief and endurance throughout the day.
