Rebounder Or Mini Trampoline

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.

    • I went to University of Maryland to see Dr. A. Fassano, because it was close to my home.  So not much more cost than a few hours off work and driving there. Doctors can't do much for celiac patients.  The best treatment for celiac disease is the gluten-free diet.  And that is the patients own responsibility.  Beyond that, there is Here's a list of some celiac centers. http://www.csaceliacs.org/celiac_centers.jsp I don't know where you live but I'd check with any local celiac groups before deciding to go on a long trip.  It may be there is as good celiac doctor in your area but you don't know about them.
    • Deamidated gliadin is the "new" test, the old one is just gliadin (if I understand what you are asking.   Definitely a positive and not normal.
    • The black walnut site looks pretty interesting cyclinglady. I've never heard of something where people from different areas collect wild nuts and turn them in to a central place. If I'm reading that correctly. Thanks kareng, I may try that sometime.
    • While CC can be a huge issues I found a few places I can trust, and I take test strips or a tester with me when I eat out. Big thing is look up reviews of places on FindMeGlutenFree app on a phone and check those out. I suggest not eating out the first few months though. But when you do ask the manager about how they will fix your food, make sure you order form the gluten-free menu. And if you can test it before eating. Simplest thing is ask unseasoned, no sauces on stuff. Most places will let you bring your own sauces, seasonings, and condiments if you have health issues. I do this all the time. While eating outside my house I bring my own meals, prefixed, If your somewhere you do not quite trust and need to fix a meal, I find using freezer paper layed out over the surface and disposable utensils work. I bring a small chef kit on vacation and trips with a griddle, knife, simple trusted seasonings and gluten-free ingredients I source form local stores. If a Microwave is available make steam pouches out of vacuum seal bags preseason-ed and marinated just poke holes in it and zap. Or they make all kind of microwave cook ware now for steaming foods, cooking eggs, bacon, etc. So you can cook so much easier now outside of hte house. Whole foods and fresh produce can be sourced just about anywhere and are nice and simple alternative raw. I will share a page of a bunch of gluten-free alternatives, places to order foods, and how to get them at local grocery store if you prefer. We do suggest Whole foods only for the first few months to jump start the healing process, and only eat stuff certified gluten-free to avoid any issues and til you master label reading. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • It is NOT normal.  I speak from experience.  Only my DGP IgA was above range and the rest of the celiac panel was negative.  My biopsies reveal moderate to severe damage.  There is a reason there are several celiac tests.  Not all have to be positive -- only one.  Even in follow-up testing, I continue to test positive to only the DGP IgA.  My GI no longer bothers to order the rest of the panel.  Mind you, my only symptom was a long history of anemia (low ferritin and I have a 2nd genetic anemia on top of that).  I had no gut issues at all!  I was shocked.   Your GP is wrong.  Find a GI who knows about celiac disease.
