Balding men, tummy tuck and saving lives.....


We have answers for everything.
Y O G A
Of late i've been fascinated with Indian Yoga, Mudras( science of finger and hand position), breathing excercises etc... Here are some pretty interesting finds...

According to Baba Ramadev, rubbing you finger nails can stop hair loss! In some cases regrow hair on the scalp as well. Who knew? and you thought your cat was just sharpening his claw.
And look at all the hair he has. Grrrr......
Method: Hold both your hands in the claw position and rub the finger nails against each other, this apparently solves the balding problem.  5-10 mins a day will do.  (Costanza would be elated...) 

2. Kapalbathi 
A kind of abdominal breathing excercise having many benefits like curing diabetes, building strong immunity...but the icing on the cake is natural 'tummy tuck' for women and men who hate to sweat it out at the gym. 'Crunches!'  begone i say!!

3. Now this is serious dudes and dudesses. 
Mritsanjivni Mudra  
This particular hand finger position is known to normalize the pulse rate and strengthen heart muscles but most importantly when this mudra is administered on a patient having a heart attack. Yes Heart Attack, it acts immediately like a sorbitrate tablet and the patient gets miraculous relief in the form of first aid! Isn't that a wonder.
Click on this link below for learning this mudra. Who knows you could save someone's life!

i was an ardent yogaist (if such a term exists) for 5 years - now with the daily grind its not possible but some of these exercises with breathing have become a subconcious effort - it really works - simple concentration on breathing pattern with a little meditation when in stress makes you feel light and airy....
also i have been rubbing finger nails forever - it also helps circulate blood - (part of accupressure treatment)- only time will tell its effect - whether i have a bad hair day or ujda chaman :)

thanks for sharing the Mudra.....

@ romila: Sure i'll post more on that, but if u r serious about yoga my suggestion wud be to learn it from a guru or attend some classes. websites and info can only guide u. Happy learning :)

@cosmic joy: did u start ur sessions? ;)

@ ceedy: 5 yrs is a big time man. I'm a Sudarshan Kriya devotee myself. Almost 2 yrs now. New to Mudras though. More than learning it is the discipline that counts. I don't have it. Reason for this post was partly to motivate myself. Lets see where it takes me :)
