Our lives are most affected by sound. The sound waves prevent calamities and also help in attaining the desired goals. First aid for throat and larynx.

The left thumb should be held in the right fist and then the left index finger should touch the right thumb. Good mudra for the thyroid function and correction of any disorder. Benefits the intestine and corrects any problem therein and with the organs of the digestive system.

The thyroid affects weight, skin, hair, and nail health.  Whether you want to gain or lose weight, mudras helping the thyroid will balance it in the right direction.  Just make sure you continue to do the mudra even as you progress.  Our bodies work very hard to do what they think we want, and when we make a change in one direction, they can think that something has gone wrong and work doubly hard to get things back to the way they were.  So, keep doing the mudra over the course of weeks.  Except for those that say to do only until the change occurs.
