How to reduce fat without diet or exercise - Top 3 hand mudras for weight loss

“How to reduce fat” is one of the most common keywords searched in Google. Obesity is the century’s biggest problem of modern lifestyle. Fast life with stress and lack of peace is one of the major reason for an unhealthy body.

Exercise and Diet control are the most common methods recommended for reducing fat. The food and exercise are important but does not touch the basic reason for weight gain. Many overweight people have tried and exhausted the science of dieting and exercise but could not achieve a consistent result. Also need too much dedication, preparation and planning which today’s folks do not have.

Ancient Indian culture is the richest science available to us. Whether it is Ayurveda, Vastu Shastra, Jyotish, Hasta-mudras or Vipassana, whatever real knowledge the world has is due to the spiritual centre i.e. Bharat (India).

The Science of HASTA MUDRAS is based on the combination of hand postures which are used to balance the five elements of the human body. Hand Mudras are also said to be the yoga postures of the hands.

The five elements (earth, water, air, fire, ether) are the five fingers as the nerves going through each finger represents and controls each element.
There are effective ways described in the science of hand mudras for the treatment of any diseases. There are hand postures which help in reducing fat and hence weight, as well as to prevent weight gain in the future.

Here are the Top 3 hand mudras for weight loss-

#1 Surya Mudra
The practice of Surya mudra is useful in balancing the earth element within the body. Earth is the primary element in fat and hence it is helpful for reducing fat and resulting in weight loss. It is also known as Prithvi- shamak (destroyer of earth element) mudra.
With the reduction of earth, it also increases the heat inside the body and hence improves the digestion. That is why it is called Surya mudra. It also reduces stress, provides strength, and reduces cholesterol in the blood. This mudra is beneficial in diabetics too.

How to do
Bend the ring finger and place the tip of the ring finger on the base of the thumb and then gently press the thumb upon the ring finger. Duration – 15 to 40 minutes.
Precaution
Avoid this mudra, if you have a fever.
If you are underweight then also avoid doing this mudra
Als,o avoid this mudra in hot summers.
Do this mudra in moderation if you are a Pitta excess or Kapha deficient person.
#2 Linga Mudra (Shiva Mudra)
This mudra increases fire element inside the body. Thumb represents the fire element. It is very effective in cold and cough, sinusitis, paralysis and low blood pressure. This hand gesture dries up the cough of the body and is very beneficial in shivering and chills in cold weather. Linga Mudra works really well with Asthma and other respiratory ailments.

How to do
Join both the palm and interlock the fingers. Keep the left hand thumb vertically straight and encircle it with the right hand thumb and index finger. Duration – 15 to 40 minutes.
Precaution
Avoid doing this mudra if you are suffering from fever.
If you have a pitta governing body, then don’t do this.

#3 Apana Mudra
Also known as the purification mudra, the Apan mudra balances the Earth and Ether inside our body. This mudra cleans up the toxins of the body and hence energize all internal body parts.
It is beneficial in Kidney problems, diabetics, teeth problems, piles, gas problems, constipation. This mudra is very beneficial for the stomach. It is beneficial in heart problems. It increases the flow of sweat due to detoxification and hence helps in reducing fat.

How to do
Join the tips of the middle and ring finger with thumb finger. Duration – 15 to 40 minutes.
Precaution
Practice in moderation if you are a Vata and Kapha governing body.

Whatever be the reason for your obesity, the base for obesity is the imbalance of the five elements of the body. Once the five elements balance themselves, obesity can get easily cured. With the usage of these mudras, you need to drink a lot of water as the body cleanses itself, and maintain the habit of moderate exercise or walk with a healthy diet.
