Candida and Rebounding

Rebounding and Candida

The level of Candida bacterium in your body can definitely be impacted by exercise. Various exercises work towards optimal health in many ways and this is the case for those prone to recurring yeast infections as well. In terms of using exercise as a weapon against candida, rebounding could be the perfect exercise to help you and can help with many health benefits as well.

About Rebounding

Rebounding is a cellular type of exercise that cleanses the cells and strengthens the body’s immune system. It involves exercising on a mini trampoline, also known as a rebounder. The act of jumping can cleanse the lymph nodes and cause perspiration, which can also have a cleansing effect. It also gets your heart rate up and gets oxygen through your body, which creates an alkaline environment. Because candida thrives in an acidic environment, it’s ideal to get yourself to an alkaline state.

How to Use a Rebounder

Rebounders can be very inexpensive and start at about $20.00. Very high-end models sell for hundreds of dollars but you might be interested in a higher end model for optimal results. There are models that have pedometers on board to tell you about your caloric burn as well as ones that have optional stability bars so even if you’ve been sedentary or are elderly or otherwise handicapped, you can still benefit from using a trampoline to help you in your quest to get healthy and fight off candida.

Gentle bouncing is a great way to get started and it helps you tone and burn calories as a low impact aerobic exercise. Once you’ve gotten comfortable with your stability you can increase your activity with jogging,  jumping jacks and by exercising with hand, wrist and ankle weights.

Start by bouncing for a minimum of five minutes per day and this can help you see quick changes in your health and wellness. Just five to ten minutes a day of rebounding could substantially increase your body’s ability to successfully reduce candida bacteria production.

Fight Yeast Infections with Knowledge

Candida infections that are recurring will diminish with a change in your lifestyle that includes exercise, healthy eating and knowledge about the candida triggers in your body. Learning about triggers and cures for yourself is a learning experience but one that can benefit your health in ways above and beyond fighting yeast infections.

3 Great Rebounder Exercises

The rebounder is a mini trampoline that can bring you some excellent health benefits. Not only is it a low impact piece of exercise equipment, it’s a high results item that can bring you many benefits from a fitness perspective as well as for overall health.

One of the benefits of this piece of equipment is that it’s great both for beginners to fitness as well as those who are already physically fit and want a challenging workout.

Rebounding exercises burn more calories than exercising on the ground and takes the pressure off your joints so you can work out for longer periods of time, therefore seeing faster results. Gravity works in your favor instead of against you.

The healthy bounce,  jogging and jumping jacks are three great exercises you can do at home with your mini trampoline.

Getting Started

It’s wise to start any exercise routine with stretching. Have some water nearby too and before you start, be sure your rebounder is correctly assembled, on a firm surface and exercise in your bare feet or in running shoes to prevent slipping and injury.

Health Bouncing

Sitting or standing on your rebounder and gently bouncing is a great way to get comfortable with rebounding. Just the act of simple and gentle bouncing while standing or sitting can have significant health benefits and get you started on the road to fitness. If you’re concerned about balance and stability you can buy a rebounder that comes with a stability bar.

Basic Rebounder Jog

Jogging on the spot on your rebounder will burn more calories than jogging on the spot on the floor or ground. Jog faster or put more pressure into the jump to achieve a higher bounce.

Jumping Jacks

The rebounder is the perfect tool to accentuate the jumping jack and get more mileage out of it. When performing jumping jacks on the rebounder, you can do more of them than on the ground because you won’t feel the same harsh impact on your joints and your feet. More jumping jacks equal more calories burned and greater cardiovascular health also.

Adding Intensity to Your Workout

Any exercise on your mini trampoline will increase health benefits and exertion when you increase your arm movements, jump higher and you can even hold hand weights and wear leg weights. You can purchase 1, 2 or 5lb weights to hold while you bounce.

Twisting while bouncing or increasing your bounce to achieve greater height will also increase the intensity of the workout resulting in higher heart rate, more perspiration and more calories burned.

You can also use your trampoline for additional exercises that you’d normally do on the floor including crunches, yoga moves and even Pilates.

Advanced balance exercises should be attempted only after you’ve been exercising with your rebounder for a while so that you feel comfortable with your balance which will reduce the chance of injury.

It doesn’t take much to get results when bouncing and with only a few minutes a day you can rapidly see changes in your body tone and your endurance levels. The above basic exercises can be tailored to any workout program and in just a few minutes of rebounder exercising per day you can benefit your heart, lungs, bones, lymphatic system and trim inches of fat off your body.
