Lightbulb Cellulite, lymphatic drainage & mini trampoline/rebounder

Hi Everyone

A few weeks ago Shell posted that she was using a mini trampoline/rebounder and since then I have found the following excerpts in "The Fat Flush" by Anne Louise Gittleman. She's a nutritionist and in my opinion has a well balanced view on health and well being. Anyway I thought others may be interested in what I found.

"Cellulite is more connected to a sluggish lymphatic system than to poor muscle tone or weakened connective tissues. The lymphatic system, a relatively unknown secondary circulatory system underneath the skin, rids the body of toxic wastes, bacteria, heavy metals, dead cells, trapped protein, and fat globules. In essence, the lymphatic system is the garbage disposal of the body."

"Insufficient fluid slows the lymphatic system. This system of organs, tissues, and tiny channels filters cellular waste and other foreign particles, pushing this debris along in lymph by the contraction of the lymph vessels. Some researchers conjecture that when a sluggish lymphatic system fails to carry wastes away in a timely fashion, the waste accumulates in fat cells and causes cellulite. At least one study, conducted at Brussels University in Belgium and cited by Elisabeth Dancey, M.D. in The Cellulite Solution, has found that women with cellulite showed lymphatic system deficiencies."

"Purifying the lymphatic system is vital for ridding your body of cellulite-like deposits..... Since it doesn't have a pump like the heart, the lymphatic system has to be exercised, relying on muscle cotractions for its flow via the thighs and arms. The best way to do this - to give those fatty deposits the old heave-ho - is by cleansing your lymphatic system either with a bouncing action or by moving your arms while walking briskly."

"...bounce on a mini trampoline every day for five minutes to gently ease waste materials out of the lymphatic system. The greatest thing about this lymph-cleaning exercise is that virtually anyone can do it, regardless of age or certain physical challenges. Individuals who can't walk can still benefit from this exercise by sitting on the rebounder while someone else bounces on it. Use of a mini trampoline has proven to be an efficient form of exercise with virtually no harmful side effects. Your cardiovascular fitness will excel, and you will be toning your body at the same time. It fires up cellular metabolism, energising every cell with fresh oxygen and nutrients. The low impact (such as the light pressure on the thighs) stimulates drainage, easing waste material out of the lymphatic system. In approximately two weeks, you should notice that your legs, buttocks, and ankles are becoming toned and those orange peel-like cellutlie deposits are smoothing out."

Note: She does stress not overdoing the exercise (which augments oxidative stress) and suggests 100 jumping jacks on the mini tramp. which should take about 5 minutes.

In the book she has a chart with a heart rate guide for exercise and says that by keeping your rate at between the 50 to 60% levels (i.e. mild exercise like she has suggested with the mini tramp.) then 85% of the calories you burn will be fat, 10% carbs and 5% protein.

* In the excerpts she did make mention of her specific program so in quoting her I have left those parts out and obviously had to change a word here or there from was to is (for example) to keep the meaning of her words intact, however, I have kept her quotes as close as possible to exactly what is written in the book.

Hope you find this as interesting as I have.

Hi Louise,
This is the same information that is written in a book by Harvey Diamond called, Fit For Life, A New Beginning. I read this a couple of months ago when I was researching what diet I should be on so that I could actually lose weight.
I had forgotten about it until I read your post. I will have to remember this for the future.

I have just started back on my rebounder, the first few times I used it, my calves got really sore!
I used it with a DVD I got and just did the basic- OMG, for 20 minutes, it was a really good work out!
Hopefully my calves will be ok tomorrow.

I gave mine away to my cleaner last year, shell. She probably doesn't use it either, keeps talking about losing weight, keeps adding it on.

Back again for the support. Still think the diet and the forum are the best ever, but too old to do it again. Now losing again slowly on maintenance diet. Ticker shows next intermediate goal only (5 kilos).

I gave it to her as it was her birthday. Not sure I can ask for it back.

Thats interesting, I too gave mine away, I wonder if I should reinvest. There are also massages you can get called lymphatic drainage massages, i wonder if they would help with weight loss?

Does anyone think that 5 minutes on the rebounder would be considered exercise? Would it be better to wait until we get to "the end" before trying to help the cellulite move?

Then again, maybe this fantastically healthy eating plan will rid me of cellulite anyway, or maybe that's just wishful thinking?!

I do like the sound of the lymphatic massages Louise41, certainly far less stressful than jumping on a mini trampoline!

I was lucky finding my mini tramp. It was during a junk collection in our area ... it looks new too!

Target are selling the mini trampolines in their toy sale starting Thursday. You can go in before and fill out a form and they will put one away for you on no deposit LayBy. Can't pick it up before September though. You can get them on outright on thursday.

Hi Martee

Thanks for your post. I'm finding this very interesting and would like to know what's involved with a lymphatic drainage session and how long a session typically takes. I guess that one would also need a couple of sessions to get the best results.

Do you know of any other "self help" methods of draining the lymph, apart from what I found about the trampoline?

I'm in WA so it's not a quick journey to Adelaide but your offer of a lymphatic drainage session sounds awesome! I'm sure there will be someone quite happy and able to follow that up.

Looking forward to your reportback after your Tuesday class.

Have a great weekend.

Louise

heres some more info on it in case your wondering... The Lymphatic system is our front line of defence in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.

The Lymph glands (at neck, armpits, groin, etc.) are connected by a broad network of vessels which transplant the fluid. Muscular movement is required to move it, as there is no "Heart" to pump it.

Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body's immune system. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids, low immunity, swollen node and also for the physically inactive.

its extremely good for you and sometimes it works pretty much straight away.. ie: i always go to the toilet afterwards for ages too (im talkking number 1s) I wouldnt really be trying to do lymphatic massage on my self its a specialised technique which takes many months to learn, also you dont want to be draining the wrong thing, its better left to a practitioner. there are many massage practitioners that do lymphatic drainage.. and most if not all treatments are covered by private insurance. I will find out about excersises we can do at home for you on tuesday.

Body wraps are also a great way to move toxins- plus very relaxing. (Beauty Therapist)

Be careful as it may make you hungry As it boosts metabolism and Drainage.

I am a remedial massage therapist and another place to start looking for a practitioner is in the directory of the Australian Therapeutic Medicine Society www.atms.com.au . I am not sure if they list lymphatics seperately, but it may give you a starting point to finding a therapist or even a college that can refer you on.

Default Re: Cellulite, lymphatic drainage & mini trampoline/rebounder

The best way to do this - to give those fatty deposits the old heave-ho - is by cleansing your lymphatic system either with a bouncing action or by moving your arms while walking briskly.
