Jal Shaamak Mudra
Abhaykumar Shah prescribes Jal Shaamak Mudra to reduce water retention in the body by promoting its elimination through improved metabolism
So far, we have discussed balancing mudras for all the Five Elements and reduction mudras for the first four elements. Now let us talk about reducing the fifth element, Jal (Water).
Surprisingly, water, considered the lightest food, also requires adequate metabolism for its digestion. The body utilises the required amount of water for various purposes: maintaining the fluidity of blood; digesting food; lubricating the joints; maintaining the levels of cerebrospinal fluid, bile, hormones, saliva, semen, and the elasticity of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Essential minerals from the water are also assimilated by the body, after which, excess water is eliminated through urine and sweat with the help of the kidneys.
Though most of us do not drink a sufficient amount of water and liquids to fill the cells of our body, it retains water because of multiple ailments, for which the mudras to treat the root causes are also varied. However, treating the symptoms is also essential. Hence the necessity of Jal Shaamak Mudra, also known as Jalodar Naashak Mudra. The word Jalodar is a combination of jal + udar. Jal, as we know, means water, and udar, in Sanskrit, means stomach. Jalodar is the name of the disease known as oedema (dropsy) in modern medical science. In this disease, the water content in the stomach exceeds the normal level. Jal Shaamak Mudra cures oedema; therefore, this mudra is called Jalodar Naashak Mudra.
The practice of this mudra facilitates proper water metabolism to reduce excess water in our body.

• Swelling of any organ or part of the body, like legs, arms, face, etc., can be reduced with the help of this mudra.
• Pleurisy, infection of the lung lining, can be cured faster by combining Jal Shaamak Mudra with some other mudras.

Never practise Jal Shaamak Mudra for more than 16 minutes at a stretch, without the advice of an expert. One can gradually increase the frequency to about three or four times a day.
One should stop practising Jal Shaamak Mudra after achieving the desired results, as it is purely a therapeutic mudra.
