Loving Yourself ~ Rebounding ~ A Physical Method to Combat Cancer, Heart Disease, or as a Preventative
Back in the ancient times, where most of our DNA began, people were physically active. Many people whether they were hunters or herders had to walk for miles from one area of the country to another, whether to find game or find better pastures.
One of the problems as civilization grew was the less mobile or physical people became.
Now onto modern times, most people in society believe in becoming more sedentary as each generation passes.
To counteract that trampolining, is a way you can increase OXYGEN and movement within your lymphatic system. As you bounce, gravity makes the lymphatic system move cleaning and removing toxins from your body and increasing your health. Walking, running, exercising at the gym, are all ways you can use. I run up and down my stairs often throughout my day as another means of rebounding.
The main problem is that our DNA is structured from our ancient forefathers, who were very active and when we begin to become less active, atrophy sets in and we can begin to spiral health-wise downwards. Maybe people can get away with it for the first 50 years of age, but once they hit their 60's or 70's this sedentary lifestyle catches up on them. Soon health issues begin to rise.
Well I had stage 4 cancer with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma last Christmas 2015. The first reaction of most people is to slow down and to give their body a rest. That was not what I decided to do. I decided that instead I would become even more active. So the first thing I did was begin to walking 3 miles a day in the desert close to may home. Walking up and down hills in the desert, is a form of rebounding.
Guess what, after 9 months of walking and taking a strong supplement called Military Multi-nutrient Formula or (MMF), my life radically turned around. I believe that rebounding turned my life around Yes, and with my last visit seeing the Physician Assistant (because of my improvement, I no longer need to see my Doctor) , I am now in remission. My doctor marvels at my quick turnaround.
So what is the science behind this strategy? If you know anything about the body there is blood that moves through arteries and veins forcing nutrients into cells throughout your body. However, what eliminates many of the wastes is your lymphatic system. Keeping it vibrant is so important.
Most toxins and diseases in your cells move out of your body through your lymphatic system. So movement creates a fluid lymphatic system, however being sedentary keeps many of those diseases in. My walking and doing exercise and constant movement daily, has helped, and with taking such good supplements, has helped my experiencing my stage 4 cancer remission.
So where does meditation enter? It is with adding increasing breath from the belly rather than from the chest. This is important because just like billows the wider you pull them apart and push them, the more air will come out. When you breath deeply this way it is taking in more OXYGEN which helps not only the blood, but the lymphatic system. So as I walk, I breath deeply, and after doing this an hour a day, I return home feeling great.
Also, as you move more often it allows more oxygen to enter and more carbon dioxide to escape. Did you know that cancer has a more difficult time to spread the more OXYGEN you take in. Shallow breathing doesn't help and learning how to breath properly, and deeply, and by increasing your movement, this daily practice, might save your life.
So you say you don't have cancer or heart disease, well that might be your case today. But rebounding and deep breathing each day, may act as an insurance for you to reduce any of these two illnesses becoming a unnecessary part of your life.
It is not enough to have health insurance hoping having it will ease any potential health problems. But remember, you have an obligation whether you can or cannot afford health insurance to take responsibility and breath deeply and become more MOBILE. Recollect, we humans still walk around in bodies we inherited from our ancient ancestors. So mobility was their regimen, and must be ours too.
Recall, even if you don't have these diseases, that quality of life becomes very important as you get older. You only have one life so become more MOBILE so as to live life the best you can. Wishing you all an active and wonderful quality of life. Dr. Steve
