Suffering from PCOS? These Two Mudras Can Give You Relief

May 30, 2019 Jiva Ayurveda 0

According to Ayurveda, PCOS occurs due to imbalanced doshas, especially Vata and Kapha. The sub dosha known as Vaishanmya brings out the symptoms of PCOS. To balance all the doshas and to ensure relief from PCOS suffering, yoga mudras have proven to be helpful.

In yoga, mudras are the hand gestures that are done in conjunction with Pranayama (breathing exercise) while sitting in Padmasana (lotus position) or Vajrasana (thunderbolt position). Mudras stimulate the flow of ojas in the body and uplight your mood. Try these two mudras to experience improvement in PCOS.

Shankha Mudra

  • Wrap four fingers (except the thumb) of your right hand around your left thumb.
  • Bring the tip of your right thumb in touch with your left middle finger.
  • The other three fingers of your left hand should be parallel to the middle finger.
  • Your hand will form the shape of a conch shell (also called shankha).
  • Perform the mudra at least 3 to 4 times a day for 3 minutes each round.

Vayu Mudra

  • Let the index finger touch the mound of the thumb.
  • Then let your thumb touch the medial phalange of your index finger.
  • Leave the other three fingers straight.
  • Perform the mudra at least 3 to 4 times a day for 3 minutes each round.

In addition to mudras, you will also need medicines, customized diets and a lifestyle plan. For personalized and proper treatment of PCOS, talk to a Jiva doctor. Click on ‘Speak to a doctor’ on the CONNECT tab or dial 0129-4040404 today.
