Yoga Poses To Pass Kidney Stone
Some of the more highly recommended types of yoga for removing kidney stones include Dhanurasana (bow pose), Ustrasana (camel pose), Pavanamuktasana (wind relieving pose), Halasana (plow pose), Bhujangasana (cobra pose),
Bhujangasana is considered to be a good method to pass kidney stone naturally and it involves lying on the stomach with the hands stretched out by the sides. The chest and head are then to be lifted off the floor and this position should be held for a few breaths.
The Ustrasana (camel pose) is also an effective asana in yoga to remove kidney stones and it also improves circulation in the lower body parts. The leg raises practiced in yoga help in strengthening the abdominal and digestive muscles and therefore are very effective in flushing out kidney stones.
To practice Pavanamuktasana, lie on your back with your feet together and arms beside your body. Breathe in and as you exhale, bring your right knee towards your chest and press the thigh on your abdomen with clasped hands. Breathe in again and as you exhale, lift your head and chest off the floor and touch your chin to your right knee. Hold it there, as you take deep, long breaths in and out.
