A Defence Against Cancer
by Linda Brooks
Exercise, a major part of the human body’s defence
strategy, can increase the number of white blood cells up
to fourteen times their normal amount. That’s an able
army to fight any battle, and it could be produced regularly!
For example, gently bouncing on a rebounder for two minutes
every hour is an ideal protocol for defence against cancer.
Within just two minutes the entire lymphatic system is flushed,
creating a demand for more lymphocytes, including killer T-cells.
The white blood-cell count is approximately tripled during
this two-minute rebounding session. Many cancer-killing potions
(such as hydrogen peroxide) are produced more efficiently
while a patient is rebounding.
Approximately one hour after rebounding, the white blood-cell
count returns to normal, so it is time to rebound again to
flush out the lymphatic system and to create another army
of defensive cells. The object of this pattern is to keep
the immune system operating optimally and naturally, hour
after hour, day after day.
Rebounding exercise also strengthens each cell of the body
so that healing can occur. Every process of every cell is
enhanced allowing each organ to do its job more efficiently:
digestion and absorption are enhanced; elimination is improved,
thus removing more toxins from the body; and the body is relaxed
and de-stressed and healing chemicals are produced.
The practice of rebounding against cancer is done using
the “health bounce,” where the feet are kept on
the mat, and a gentle bouncing motion is maintained for up
to two minutes. A stabilizer bar is available to be attached
to the rebounder to add security, safety, and balance when
needed by those who are weak or unsteady. If endurance is
low, start with less time than two minutes and work up to
the optimal two minutes over a period of a few weeks.
Because rebounding is a compact force on the cells, finding
your threshold for health bouncing is important in order to
avoid overdoing it. This is done by timing your initial two-minute
bouncing session with the second hand of a watch or clock.
If dizziness, pain, weakness, or other discomfort occurs before
the two minutes have elapsed, that is the time to stop bouncing,
noting the interval that was bounced. Whatever the time frame,
from a few seconds to two minutes, that is your threshold
for health bouncing. That time frame should be used every
hour each day for up to one week; thereafter, gradually work
up to the two-minute session, as you feel comfortable. If
the person is too weak to stand, a “buddy bounce”
can be employed. Being creative in finding a way to health
bounce is important for those who are weak or have poor balance.
Respecting the power of the bounce while rebounding is also
of utmost importance. You are working with a triple force
of gravity. Despite the fact that you are only bouncing, which
feels easy and fun, you are gaining important benefits. Overdoing
this exercise is not helpful. A little health bouncing goes
a long way towards helping the body to fight cancer and to
The Power Behind the Bounce
As we move about the planet we oppose gravity with every
movement. When you bounce on the rebounder you come down with
a greater force so that you weigh more at the bottom of the
bounce. You are now accelerating and decelerating in line
with gravity so that the body feels these three forces (acceleration,
deceleration, and gravity) as if they are also gravity. Your
body knows how to adapt to an increased force of gravity upon
it by becoming stronger, just as certain muscles become stronger
when repeatedly lifting a weight. When rebounding all the
cells of the body are resisting gravity with a greater force,
so they all grow stronger – internal organs, bones,
muscles, brain, and skin.
It is important to remember to breathe deeply while bouncing
and to exhale as completely as possible, making room for more
air with your next breath. As you rebound and breathe deeply,
you can also train yourself to breathe properly when you are
not on the rebounder.
Oxygen in the bloodstream plays an important role in cancer
suppression. Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner, demonstrated
during the 1920s that the metabolism of cancerous tissue differs
radically from that of normal tissue. Normal tissue usually
dies when it is deprived of oxygen; however, cancerous tissue
needs little or no oxygen to exist. Subsequent studies showed
that normal animal tissue can become cancerous if deprived
of oxygen. This is substantiated by the fact that malignant
tumours are frequently found in areas where the blood supply
An abundant supply of oxygen to the cells seems to be a
definite defence against cancer and because rebound exercise
is an oxygenating exercise, regular bouncing throughout the
day supplies an increased amount of oxygen to all the cells
of the body simultaneously.
Consciously making an effort to breathe deeply while you
bounce delivers an even greater supply of oxygen to the bloodstream.
Efficiently delivering oxygen and nutrients to every cell
every hour on the hour, while removing toxins and waste products,
including dead cancer cells, advances the body daily towards
I believe it is important and necessary to educate oneself
about standards for purchasing a rebounder because all rebounders
are not created equal. In my experience many rebounders on
the market today can actually be harmful to one’s health,
so be sure to choose carefully. My primary choice of rebounders
has always been the Needak soft-bounce rebounder which has
stood the test of time for safety, efficiency, convenience,
and cost effectiveness.
A true rebounder is not a toy. It is a piece of exercise
equipment that is designed to promote the body’s natural
healing. Rebounding works! With every healthy bounce, each
cell of the body is cleansed, strengthened, protected, and
stimulated to heal itself.
