Rebounder Or Mini Trampoline
0

2 posts in this topic

Just two weeks ago I posted here while having a very 'blue' day. It was also two weeks after my rebounder arrived.

I have desperately searched for 'my key' to weight loss. I know one issue I still have after 6 months of gluten-free is inflammation. Not only am I mildly obese, but my scales fluctuated 10 lbs, depending on the inflammation still in my intestines and abdomen. I looked pregnant! And it was no longer bloat, that is long gone.... this is inflammation.

I have religiously done Elimination diets to find what I might be having a reaction to. Added healthy fats. Eaten such a clean diet that body builders have nothing on me.

I have not had my thyroid checked yet. I still intend to do that. I know I have an issue with my lymph glands. I have suffered unexplained by the doctors swelling of them for over 10 years. I know that thyroid and the lymphatic system issues go hand in hand.

I have been up and down the scales all my life. Up to and as recent as 3 years ago, used to lift weights and work out. Since my 'crash' and self dx 6 months ago, I just couldn't get myself to go back to it. I felt exhausted when I tried. (a sign of thyroid issues). Looking at my muscle atrophied from the malnutrition of the last few years, and lack of working out made me want to cry.

Parts of me seem better, while others are wasting away.

I was so weak, barely able to lift my grandchilden to hug them. Any physical activity made me ache, and I had no stamina. A quick grocery Shopping trip, wore me out.

Then I read about rebounding. It perked my interest. NASA studied this at length (you can search their test findings on google).

It seems a gentle bounce can stimulate our lymph nodes to 'empty' of toxins. Well, after laying around for a year, mine had to be full of something. Even more full than the last 10 years. Lord knows I haven't been 'bouncy'!

The first two weeks on the rebounder, just gently bouncing, so gently that my feet did not leave the mat, I felt like a kid being silly. I haven't felt that silly in a long time! But that feeling of silly is kind of fun. Being on the rebounder is a bit addictive too! So I acted like a kid and kept getting on. Maybe only 5 minutes, but I had to bounce.

My scales began to move, but until I passed the 10# mark I felt I couldn't count it. Since my weight has gone up and down with the inflammation.

Well, I am at 15 lbs lost! I think I can count it now!

I don't know that I have lost fat, I can only hope. But I do know my tummy now looks like I had my baby, not that I am still carrying it! I am sure the weight lost was inflammation. But YAY! Its going away!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am just now feeling comfortable enough to bounce a bit higher, leaving the mat. I have had a lot of vertigo over the years, and I was scared to be more aggressive, even though I was beginning to feel I could be. So I want to make clear, I have not tried to be an acrobat on the rebounder, and yet I have lost 15 lbs of something I certainly didn't need to be carrying!

My stamina is coming back! A long walk with my grandchildren doesn't make me want to collapse. I have even been to the park and played with them, while laughing instead of just trying to hang in there for their sake!

On the net you can see many advertising websites that make claims of all that rebounding can do for your health, and many amazing testimonials. I didn't buy into all that hype, preferring to go with medical studies instead. I don't know what all rebounding CAN do a body, but I must say, in my experience, its doing something!

I don't share this to brag of my loss! I want to give back to this forum! You have all helped me immensely, and I swear I would NOT be alive today, were it not for all of you!

If I can help one person here by sharing my experience, I would feel even better!!!! Just knowing I have given back some of what I was given.

When I took Yoga many years ago, the teacher said that jumping makes people feel happy. IF you look at little kids, when they are happy they jump, hop, skip around. Don't know if its any different from any other exercise, but its working for you. That's the important thing.

    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it. 
    • I admit, my blood panel was "mildly positive" with only the DPG IGA being the positive, yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIB (pathologist report) though my visual on the endoscopy was fine.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, that is for sure.
