Apaan mudra

The Apaan mudra is an extremely important and useful mudra that first detoxifies (and, therefore, purifies) the body and then energizes it.
Method : Apaan mudra is formed by joining together the tips of the thumb, the middle finger and the ring finger.

Apaan mudra is a combination of the Aakaash-vardhak (Aakaash) and the Prithvi-vardhak (Prithvi) mudras. Apart from an increase of elements space and earth, Apaan mudra brings about an increase of Vaata and Kapha humors and, therefore, a decrease of Pitta humor.
> Benefits of  The Apaan mudra:
> Anuria (absence/obstruction of urine)
> Constipation, flatulence (gas), piles
> Absence of sweat
> Delayed delivery of a child
> Burning in the body/body-parts
> Ailments caused by a deficiency of element space and humor Vaata
> Ailments caused by a deficiency of element earth and humor Kapha
> Ailments caused by an excess of element fire and humor Pitta.  

Duration : Minimum 30 to 45 minutes every day, either at one stretch or in three parts (i.e., for 10 to 15 minutes, thrice a day).
Precaution : People with a Varta + Kapha mix constitution should perform this mudra in moderation.
