Now 87 Mom is still experiencing dramatic health "rebound"

To walt and those who are interested in rebounders. I wrote about my 86 yearold mother who is now in the category of a "former" heart patient. ( hasn't felt the need to see a doctor now for a year) Her latest developments are: dramatic improvement in an arthritic neck ( no pain, and, full mobility), a condition (doubtless caused by taking medication for 15 years) known as peripheral neuropathy appears to have turned around. Her hands no longer go to sleep and her feet are improving. Now truning to the exciting part she has persuade two other heart patients to begin GENTLE and when I say gentle I mean gentle rebounding and they too are experiencing profound result. The message I get from all this seems to be like Ronald Regan said "Say No to Drugs"

I just finished my workout on my rebounder. I do find that I get quite bored, just bouncing up and down even if I am listening to my music. So I quit. If its not exciting, I lose interest. I have tried to keep it exciting, by using different dance moves, etc, but I just lost interest.

So now I have found a really great way to stay motivated. I discovered it today. I was outside working out on the rebounder. The sun was out and the air was so fresh and clean outside. And my silly dog kept bugging me by jumping up on the rebounder and laying right between my feet while I am trying to work out. He was trying to sleep while I workout and I guess I was interrupting his sleep! LOL It was a funny sight though.

Anyway, the phone rang, and I answered it. And for the next 20mins I talked while I rebounded. And it was great! The time flew by, and I hardly even noticed that I was exercising. My phone is a portable phone so of course you would need a portable phone to do this, but I loved it. So It was me, the dog and the phone. All rebounding together! :)

BTW, does rebounding cause significant weight loss????

Ciao!

Bliss, I think your doggy wanted the benefits
of the rebounding and didn't know how to ask.

LOL!!!

OK, I could go with that Vince.

He is a very healthy dog, but lately he has been panting heavily, even when he is resting. He has also put on some weight. Could this panting be a heart problem?

Also, when he goes out back and plays, when he comes back inside he has so many prickles caught in his fur. And they are everywhere. In between his paws, chest, chin, face, belly, everywhere! I have to spend ages pulling them out, and sometimes he nips me, as they hurt when I pull on his fur. Any idea how to make this an easier experience for him?

How long does she rebound?

Richard -

Can you tell me how gentle and how long she goes? My 66 year old mother is FINALLY starting to listen to me and she won't walk for a number of reasons. Maybe if I got her a rebounder she would try. She's starting to get numbness in her extremities and I know this would help. She wouldn't understand that her chi is stagnant, but I can tell her that she needs to get everything moving if she wants to feel well!! :)

If you could give me just some basic amounts of time, and what she does, I'd be very greatful. Thanks.

Beth

Thanks, Richard.

As I have said before: There is no doubt that these harmless things will work, only whether one can get the person to DO them.

Namaste`

When my dog came back with 'hitchhikers,' I put a little Silk Therapy (I get it from a beauty shop) on my hands and rub it into the affected hair. Then they just slip right out.

Fantastic!!! I love these rebounder's i have two great one's and on them every morning for at least 15 minuets and then i do my yoga stretch's it is fantastic what the two together do. When i travel i even go out and buy one for the house [people] i'm staying at; I was just wondering how i would fit my trampoline in the car when i leave on the road tommorow for a month. [car being already loaded]; Well they never cost much, and i will go out and buy the lady i'm staying with [in Atlanta] one if she does not have it, because i think everyone needs to have one anyway; When i stay with people all over it is usually to help assist them and others with there health so besides kitchen being revamped with the right foods the trampoline is the next thing i work with them, always on!! Then we look at the thinking area and how the mind functions and it is a fun time-love it! Oh well just another excitment like you have for your mother! Great Great what a nice thing to let us know!
