Detox finger mudraHowever careful you are with your diet, it’s almost impossible to avoid the toxins that pervade our environment from everyday items like carpets, plastics and cleaning agents.

Then there are the toxins you create in your body through stress and holding on to thought patterns and emotions.

It’s no wonder we all need to detox!

How about a simple way to detox that you can use everyday? Like brushing your teeth, except easier!

And, like brushing your teeth, an everyday detox helps prevent unpleasant health problems.

Detoxification Mudra (finger posture)

Place your thumb pad on the inside base of your ring finger.

It’s preferable to do this mudra on both hands together, though you can alternate hands if need be. Hold for 3 – 5 minutes. Later you can build up towards 45 minutes if you like, and this can be a series of shorter sessions during the day.

For me, toxins show up in my skin, and I find this mudra very effective at clearing those blemishes.

And of course it makes sense to take practical steps to minimise your uptake of toxins in the first place!

    • Thank you Gabriel for taking the time to clarify it’s the inner side of the ring finger that the thumb presses! Greetings to you from Scotland 🙂

  2. May, thank you for your latest tip. On waking this morning I decided to sit for 2 or 3 mins doing this Mudra not knowing what to expect but I wanted to tell you that I felt a shift, a kind of clearing in my head. It may just be my imagination, but I will be using this on a regular basis. Pearl xxx

    • Very cool, Pearl 🙂 While I focused on physical detox, I’m sure it helps detox emotions and thoughts too. Do let us know how it goes …
