15 benefits of Kunjal Kriya

Kunjal kriya is one of the Vaman Dhauti techniques of sat karma in the yogic detox techniques. It is also called as Vamana dhuti in Sanskrit language. It is the process of purifying body through vomiting.

However, some people might find it weird that such a technique where body cleansing through vomiting even exists. But it is true as such method exists in yoga. We externally often clean our body, which is quite easy also. While water cleans body externally Kunjal kriya cleans the body internally.

It is an amazingly simple technique and unlike other techniques you do not have to twist your ankle and arms. The correct way to perform kunjal kriya is:

At first you must get ready some things

-Eight to ten glasses of lukewarm water
-per liter one table spoon Himalayan rock salt or normal salt

Now, the steps are simple all you need to do is continuously drink the salt mixed Luke warm water empty stomach to the point the body cannot take more. Sit in a comfortable position while doing so. When the water exceeds the limitation body will throw out the water through vomiting.

However, you got to the point where you cannot take more but still unable to vomit then use your index and middle finger. The sides of the throat should be gently massaged through both fingers. But one must be careful not to scratch gentle internal throat area with nails. After this your body will throw the water out of your stomach.

It is not just vomiting, it has many benefits and good impact on the body.
