Our bodies are threatened with toxic overload. Rising cancer rates, together with the dishearting discovery that even breast milk is laced with dioxin and other chemical contaminants are only two of hundreds of starting reminders that environment pollution is taking its toll. Now more than ever, we need to support our body's natural capacity for self- healing. Mudra is a good place to start.
For thousands of years this ancient "Science of longevity" has championed cleaning as a way to eliminate toxins, bolster immunity, and revitalize our body, breath, and mind.
Place each thumb on the inner edge of the third joint of your ring finger (see pic). Do this with each hand. For 10 minutes three times a day.
At least once a year, we should all plan a detoxification treatment. It makes no difference whether this is done at a beautiful spa or at home. The important thing is to pamper yourself and allow yourself rest during this time, while still getting some exercise (walking, yoga, breathing exercises). A rice or potato treatment has a very efficient but gentle effect. For three to five days, eat easily digestible bread with herb tea nettle (urtica dioica L.) in the morning; for lunch and dinner, have a meal of rice or potatoes and steamed leaf vegetables. Drink tea or water between meals.
Do an enema every second day and occasionally support the detoxification process with a compress, a potato compress is quite easy to use and practically draws the toxins out of the body. It can be used to support general cleansing by placing it on the lever or any other body parts that hurt. Boil the potatoes in their skins and mash with a fork, wrap in a cotton towel, and place it on the body; wrap the warm towel around the body and the potatoes sack. Leave the compress on the respective spot for about 30 minutes.x
During the detoxification days, lie down and rest often. This is the time to use this Mudra for supporting the detoxification process. It is important to consider the things, in addition to waste materials and toxins, you are willing to let go off---bad memories, old grudges, bad habits, negative character traits, fear and etc. This will make room for something new.
