    Protect Yourself from the Flu by Rebounding

    It's the heart of cold and flu season again and the news media are pumping out reports daily to keep us alerted to its dangers.

    One national news source provided a vivid report demonstrating how germs are spread so rapidly when we shake hands with someone sick. Others are again repeating the advice given by doctors to prevent catching the flu: get enough sleep, wash your hands often, drink plenty of water, eat quality meals, and exercise daily.

    Not all of us have the time and finances to afford a gym membership, but there is a solution to getting the right kind of exercise to protect yourself from getting the flu by improving the functioning of your lymphatic system to remove toxins and wastes from your body.

    That exercise is called rebounding otherwise known as bouncing on an exercise rebounder.

    David Hall is a certified cellogist and the foremost authority in the rebound exercise industry. His creations include the barrel and the tri-flex steel spring as well as the Cellerciser line of rebounders. Hall says, "Nothing stimulates the lymphatic system better than rebounding. The movement creates pressure changes in the body, breaks up blockages, and causes millions of one-way valves to open and shut. This activates an internal vacuum system of suction to flush and eliminate viruses, germs, bacteria, and other foreign invaders."

    Hall concludes, "A one-minute sprint on a rebounder can increase the circulation of white blood cells 10 to 15 times. It's like giving yourself a natural antibiotic every morning."

    What's great about this type of flu prevention is the small amount of time it takes each day bouncing to make a difference in your health and it can be done in the privacy of your own home or office.

    Adding rebounding to your other flu preventive measures can go a long way to improve your chances of not getting sick during this winter's cold and flu season.
