Bringing new leaf to the medico-patient relations

What do you feel when you come to understand that Medical Science and Astrology come together? Sign of relief indeed.  This was how I felt when I heard of a field in medical science(or is it a sield of Astrology?) Medical Astrology!   But the bottom line is that this field is of immense importance to the ailing public and their relatives. I got the information in discussion with Dr M.K. Taneja. Dr Taneja is Editor of Indian Journal of Otology and Chief of Indian Institute of Ear Diseases in New Delhi. He can be contacted on ijo_editor@rediffmail.com or reached out thru’ mobile no. 09810246266. He is a practicing Medical Astrologer.

Technically Medical Astrology is defined as a proven and an invaluable diagnostic tool that leads to speedy recovery and lasting cures. Once a person knows to what diseases he is primarily suspectible, he can guard against them from the beginning and thus live a long and healthy life.

As per Wikipedia, Medical astrology (traditionally known as Iatromathematics) is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs as under the influence of the sun, moon, and planets, along with the twelve astrological signs. Each of the astrological signs (along with the sun, moon, and planets) is associated with different parts of the human body. The underlying basis for medical astrology, astrology itself, is considered to be a pseudoscience or superstition as there is no scientific basis for its core beliefs…

After examining an individual’s natal chart, a medical astrologer gives advice to the client about the areas of the body in which they are most likely to experience trouble. For instance, an individual with the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or many planets in the sign of Aries is presumed to have more headaches than other people because of the association of Aries with the head. A person with Taurus strong in the natal chart is predicted to have many sore throats and problems with the voice because of the Taurean association with that particular part of the body.

Now a doctors’ line of treatment is based on hit and trial basis. If astrology gets involved in it then he will be in a position to ‘diagnose’ that whether a particular line of treatment will benefit the patient. If he has to undergo an operation will he emerge better after that? If not, then other lines/treatments can be used.

It will be an ultimate boon for the patient, no doubt. The basic thing is that trust on doctor would increase. The vastly ‘commercialised’ relation between doctors and patients could turn out to be more ‘humanitarian’- emotionally and financially.
