A stressful lifestyle, poor dietary patterns, medical conditions and demands of a rigorous work life can all affect one of the most important functions of your body-digestion which in turn can cause a loss of appetite. Are there any natural non invasive ways to deal with appetite loss? The answer or the relief lies in the ancient science of Mudras or hand gestures, which is part of Yoga. Mudra means “seal,” “gesture,” or “mark.” Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one’s journey within.

These very simple hand gestures or Mudras are extremely simple to practice. It goes without saying, that these mudras are even more effective when practiced along with breathing practices like Ujjayi breath or deep breaths. But even in a normal breath, it shows results.

Mudras are a healing modality. The Sanskrit word mudra is translated as a gesture. A mudra generally involves the tips of the fingers and placement of the fingers in a certain fashion to give the desired result in balancing the three Doshas. Mudras, when used with breathing exercises, increase the flow of life force in the body, leaving you feeling energized and relaxed even after a long haul.

According to Ayurvedic philosophy, our body is made up of five elements which are fire(Agni), Air( Vayu), sky(Aakash), earth (Prithvi), water(Jal). Each finger is known to correspond to each of these five elements.

Thumb           – Fire (Agni)

Index finger   -Air (Vayu)

Middle finger – space or ether (Aakash)

Ring finger    – Prithvi (earth)

Little Finger   –  Water ( Jal)
