Rebounding: A Defence Against Cancer
Linda Brooks
by Linda Brooks

Exercise, a major part of the human body’s defence strategy, can increase the number of white blood cells up to fourteen times their normal amount. That’s an able army to fight any battle, and it could be produced regularly!

For example, gently bouncing on a rebounder for two minutes every hour is an ideal protocol for defence against cancer. Within just two minutes the entire lymphatic system is flushed, creating a demand for more lymphocytes, including killer T-cells. The white blood-cell count is approximately tripled during this two-minute rebounding session. Many cancer-killing potions (such as hydrogen peroxide) are produced more efficiently while a patient is rebounding.

Approximately one hour after rebounding, the white blood-cell count returns to normal, so it is time to rebound again to flush out the lymphatic system and to create another army of defensive cells. The object of this pattern is to keep the immune system operating optimally and naturally, hour after hour, day after day.

Rebounding exercise also strengthens each cell of the body so that healing can occur. Every process of every cell is enhanced allowing each organ to do its job more efficiently: digestion and absorption are enhanced; elimination is improved, thus removing more toxins from the body; and the body is relaxed and de-stressed and healing chemicals are produced.

The practice of rebounding against cancer is done using the “health bounce,” where the feet are kept on the mat, and a gentle bouncing motion is maintained for up to two minutes. A stabilizer bar is available to be attached to the rebounder to add security, safety, and balance when needed by those who are weak or unsteady. If endurance is low, start with less time than two minutes and work up to the optimal two minutes over a period of a few weeks.

Because rebounding is a compact force on the cells, finding your threshold for health bouncing is important in order to avoid overdoing it. This is done by timing your initial two-minute bouncing session with the second hand of a watch or clock. If dizziness, pain, weakness, or other discomfort occurs before the two minutes have elapsed, that is the time to stop bouncing, noting the interval that was bounced. Whatever the time frame, from a few seconds to two minutes, that is your threshold for health bouncing. That time frame should be used every hour each day for up to one week; thereafter, gradually work up to the two-minute session, as you feel comfortable. If the person is too weak to stand, a “buddy bounce” can be employed. Being creative in finding a way to health bounce is important for those who are weak or have poor balance.

Respecting the power of the bounce while rebounding is also of utmost importance. You are working with a triple force of gravity. Despite the fact that you are only bouncing, which feels easy and fun, you are gaining important benefits. Overdoing this exercise is not helpful. A little health bouncing goes a long way towards helping the body to fight cancer and to heal.

The Power Behind the Bounce

As we move about the planet we oppose gravity with every movement. When you bounce on the rebounder you come down with a greater force so that you weigh more at the bottom of the bounce. You are now accelerating and decelerating in line with gravity so that the body feels these three forces (acceleration, deceleration, and gravity) as if they are also gravity. Your body knows how to adapt to an increased force of gravity upon it by becoming stronger, just as certain muscles become stronger when repeatedly lifting a weight. When rebounding all the cells of the body are resisting gravity with a greater force, so they all grow stronger – internal organs, bones, muscles, brain, and skin.

It is important to remember to breathe deeply while bouncing and to exhale as completely as possible, making room for more air with your next breath. As you rebound and breathe deeply, you can also train yourself to breathe properly when you are not on the rebounder.

Oxygen in the bloodstream plays an important role in cancer suppression. Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner, demonstrated during the 1920s that the metabolism of cancerous tissue differs radically from that of normal tissue. Normal tissue usually dies when it is deprived of oxygen; however, cancerous tissue needs little or no oxygen to exist. Subsequent studies showed that normal animal tissue can become cancerous if deprived of oxygen. This is substantiated by the fact that malignant tumours are frequently found in areas where the blood supply is poor.

An abundant supply of oxygen to the cells seems to be a definite defence against cancer and because rebound exercise is an oxygenating exercise, regular bouncing throughout the day supplies an increased amount of oxygen to all the cells of the body simultaneously.

Consciously making an effort to breathe deeply while you bounce delivers an even greater supply of oxygen to the bloodstream. Efficiently delivering oxygen and nutrients to every cell every hour on the hour, while removing toxins and waste products, including dead cancer cells, advances the body daily towards healing.

I believe it is important and necessary to educate oneself about standards for purchasing a rebounder because all rebounders are not created equal. In my experience many rebounders on the market today can actually be harmful to one’s health, so be sure to choose carefully. My primary choice of rebounders has always been the Needak soft-bounce rebounder which has stood the test of time for safety, efficiency, convenience, and cost effectiveness.

A true rebounder is not a toy. It is a piece of exercise equipment that is designed to promote the body’s natural healing. Rebounding works! With every healthy bounce, each cell of the body is cleansed, strengthened, protected, and stimulated to heal itself.
