Kapha Naashak (कफ़ नाशक मुद्रा) / Pitta Vardhak / Kidney Hasta Mudra

Kapha Naashak Mudra decreases the Kapha humor within the body. Pitta is concerned with the bodily heat (digestion/metabolism) and the circulatory system. These entities are stimulated and reinforced by this mudra.

This is an excellent mudra for people having a kapha excess or a Pitta deficiency in their bodies. They can regularly perform this mudra even to prevent illness. However, people who have an excess of Pitta (heat) in their bodies should practice it in moderation, if at all.
