We all have had ancient health tips from our grandparents for e.g before leaving for work drink a glass of sugar water, avoid meat, feed cows and monkeys, donate red-colour clothes, and feed birds. Many must have followed obediently, but have you ever questioned them why should we do it? Probably only some would have the answer. My curiosity was aroused last year when my uncle got admitted to the hospital with severe disease. The doctors had lost hope, but we did not. I remember the day doctor asked to pray for his health, we spoke to our acquaintance astrologer. He informed many things about the uncles health condition, from an astrology or planetary position perspective. And gave us a list of remedial actions for the next 10 days. Some of them were:
- Every Morning Gopal Kavach mantra chanting by the person suffering
- Donate any grain every day to needy
- 108 times Mahamrityunjaya Jaap
Trust me within a few days we could feel the difference in his emotional and mental willpower. The astrology remedies developed a fighting spirit in all of us. Consequently, it got him onto the recovery track. In fact, for the first time, I witnessed astrology health remedies aiding medical treatment. And the patient responded very well, wondering what triggered the recovery. Was it the astrology health remedies or medical science or a combination of the two?
After exploring I discovered the following facts that will definitely be informative for you as well.
There are three main planets that affect the health Sun, Mars, and Saturn.
- The Sun influences our Energy to perform all the activities.
- Mars takes care of the force and Vitality
- While Saturn ensures longevity and tenacity
Besides 1st, 6th, 8th and 12th houses are extremely important houses from a health point of view. If malefic planets like Saturn, Mars, Rahu, and Ketu are present in these houses, the person can face severe health problems. Vedic astrology also relates health to human chakras. It apprises us of the connection between planets and chakras within our celestial body. Basically, our birth chart planet indicates the quality of our Chakra. Thus, if any ruling planet of chakra in our horoscope is weak then the chakra characteristics are also weak. This may result in certain health problems. Therefore, it is important to take care of the weakest planet at any particular time or stage of life.
The 7 chakras are like a reflection of the entire Solar system. Each Chakra has a ruling planet. Every chakra inherits the nature of its ruling planet.
Following are the 7 Chakras and their ruling planets
