Mudras is a natural and non-medical way of treatment which had no harmful side effects. Mudras works according to the principles of Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, all the diseases are caused due to an imbalance in constitutions(Vata, Pitta and Kapha). Hand Mudras are useful to manipulate (increase or decrease) these Doshas. Hand mudras are various posture using all the fingers. You can heal various diseases through hand mudras.
Hand mudras have an extraordinary power to balance your health condition and improves resistance power. With improved resistance power, you can easily overcome any disease.
Benefits of mudra therapy
Mudra has many Advantages:
Mudras is very easy to practice.
Mudras is the most simple in all non-medical and alternative treatments.
Mudras have no side effects, and anyone can do it with some basic knowledge.
Mudra is safe and a no cost natural treatment.
It is a self-treatment, and you can use as a defensive move towards illness.
Any person who analyzes and understands his temperament and his bodily constitution (on the basis given in Personality through health table ) can realize what ailments he is susceptible to and can, then regularly practice certain mudras to prevent those susceptibilities from manifesting into overt illness.
Mudras enjoy a universal application. They can help all types of disorders; Sub-acute, acute or chronic; they can help all kind of people: young or old, men or women.
Mudra therapy can use as advantageously combined with other forms of treatment: non-medical as well as medical. Being a part of Ayurveda, it goes especially well with Ayurvedic medicine.
Even after this much saying some you may say that “All this sounds too good to be true. Does it work? Or is it all in the mind? Perhaps mudras help because the performer firmly believes that they will. Without the performer’s faith, mudras would fall flat on their faces”.
But some doctors and scientists never believe in such things, but some tested and said this work. So it up to You to decide whether it work or not. I can say this because as far I had found out and with my experience with mudras I can say that Mudras help people who are entirely new to or unaware of, Mudra therapy and have never witnessed its efficacy become ‘believers’.
Mudras help young children and even insane people, where the question o belief does not arise, and Mudras even help semi-conscious or unconscious people (on whom Mudra therapy is carried put passively by using rubber bands to keep up thumbs and fingers, in particular, positions).
Even though Mudras help in many diseases there, somewhere it has no role in the treatment of the following disorders
Purely mechanical disorders like mature cataract, a big hole in the eardrum, deviated nasal septum, cleft palate, hare lip, valvular heart defects, varicose veins, hernia, big stones in the gall bladders/urinary tract, prolapsed uterus/rectum/intervertebral disc, fracture, etc. These disorders will, of course, need surgical intervention.Ailments caused by deficiencies of nutrients. vitamins, minerals, etc.Disorders that are a part and parcel of old age (senile degeneration).
Life-threatening ailments like cancer, AIDS, encephalitis, diphtheria, heart failure, kidney failure, cirrhosis of the live, septicemia, gangrene, etc. These diseases call for active, extreme measures rather than gentle mudras.
So what I say that mudrā therapy is an excellent key to try in the lock of illness. More often than not, it succeeds in opening up the lock. This key should, undoubtedly, be tried when other keys(e.g., modern medicines) have either failed or are undesirable / inapplicable. You may say that mudrā therapy seems to simple to be effective. So what I can say is in life, most important truths are, indeed, write simple!
