Mudras: Suchi mudra
This mudra serves to eliminate toxins, both physical and mental. Relieves constipation, stress, anger and general discomfort.
First close your fists and place them in front of your chest (starting position). Then, when inspiring, extend your right arm to the right by raising the index. At the same time, extend your left arm to the left. Hold this posture for 6 breathing movements and return to the starting position. Do the same to the other side. Repeat 6 times on each side.
In the case of severe chronic constipation, practice it 4 times a day; if it's light, 6 to 12 times in the morning and at noon. When you're traveling or have a sharp episode, practice it every morning for 5 to 10 minutes, before getting up and comfortably lying in bed. The Suchi Mudra usually act at first. If you do it at 7 a.m., before 9 o'am you'll be able to go to the bathroom without any problems.
For yogis, daily defecation and bowel cleansing have always been very important. The discomfort, hostility, impatience, anger, and wanting to cling to everything is often due to a full and therefore stressed gut.
Against constipation, the phrángula (Rhamnus frángula) also helps.
