Not-so-common treatment for the common cold
Abhay Kumar Shah recommends three Mudras to take care of the pesky common cold
In the wake of the hurricane of COVID-19, there is almost no discussion about other diseases or viral infections—as if they are non-existent! The oldest, most common, and the simplest viral infection amongst all is the common cold. It is more common than common sense.
It is humorously said that the common cold is cured with medicine within seven days and without medicine within a week. Contracting this infection is the easiest way to gauge our immunity status; people with low immunity catch this virus easily.
The symptoms are not very painful, but they could be quite disturbing. A runny nose, sneezing, congestion in the chest, low or high fever, muscle pain, phlegm, nasal congestion, loss of smell, redness in the eyes, itchiness, chills, fatigue, body ache, sinus pressure, swollen lymph nodes, throat irritation—the list is endless. It’s amazing how a simple common cold can be so potent!
Although there is no sure-shot remedy for the common cold in modern medical science, Mudra Therapy can treat and reduce the risk of infection as well as the symptoms.
Here are some mudras which will help make your life easier:
We all know that viral infections enter through a window in the wall of the immune system. This mudra works well for reinforcing our immune system. It is observed that a person practising Prana Mudra regularly is very unlikely to be infected with any kind of virus.
Touch the tips of the ring and the little fingers to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight. Place the back of your palms on your knees or thighs.
Practise twice a day for at least 16 minutes each time;
30 minutes is ideal.
If one is affected by symptoms like cough, cold, and chills, then Surya Mudra works best. It increases the heat in the body. When the environmental temperature is low, the phlegm thickens and can’t flow easily. It chokes the nasal spaces and accumulates on the vocal cord. Surya Mudra raises the temperature of the body and makes the phlegm flow freely and also reduces its accumulation in the chest.
Touch the tip of the ring finger to the root of the thumb. Keep the thumb on the back of the folded ring finger. Place the back of your palms on your knees or thighs.
Practise for 16 minutes to 30 minutes. Never overdo it. Stop when the result is achieved.
As far as increasing the heat in the body is concerned, there is one other mudra, which can be combined with Surya Mudra; it is Ling Mudra.
It increases the heat in the body very rapidly. The only caution while practising Ling Mudra is to consume a lot of water and other liquids as the heat created by this mudra dehydrates our body.
Clasp the fingers of both the hands with each other and apply little pressure. Keep one thumb vertically straight. Wrap the other thumb around the straight thumb.
Never practise this mudra for more than 10 minutes without the advice of a mudra consultant. Stop practising this mudra after achieving the desired result.
