Astrology, Holistic Medicine and Ayurveda
Holistic medicine postulates that the responsibility for healthcare rests
in the patient's hands because that is where the knowledge and control
of the variables lie (diet, stress, exercise, genetics, emotion and medication).
The Five Levels of Being - The Yogic Model
These are the five concentric sheaths enveloping the Self, the Divine
Spark in man!:
Disease is the imbalance in any of the three lower sheaths of existence -
physical, vital and mental.
The microcosm & the macrocosm are are in unbroken communion
with each other & are structured on the same pattern. At the
level of the physical sheath, food, water & oxygen enter the microcosm
and Co2, waste products etc return to the macrocosm. This is true of
other sheaths also. The individual cannot exist independent of the
cosmos. The interdependence of the Microcosm & the Macrocosm
is known in Classical Philosophy as the Bio-Cosmic tieup. If the
exchange between the physical sheath and the physical world
around it is defective, the body will become ill, and death
will result if it is stopped altogether.
A good site where you can get quality information about Holistic Medicine
Vedic Holistic Medicine is Ayurveda and its prophylactic aspect
is Naturopathy. All non-veg food is acidic and the alkaline food which
is needed for the body is that which cometh from Nature. So if we live
in rhythm with Natural Law, no disease can visit us.

Astrology & Yoga Therapy
The approach of Yoga Therapy is based on the holistic concept of human
being; the five " sheaths " of existence of which the physical sheath
( Annamaya Kosha ) is only the first. The second is the Vital Sheath
( Pranamaya Kosha ), that is made up of the Vital Energy called Prana
which flows through invisible channels called Nadis. The third is the
Mental Sheath ( Manomaya Kosha ) The fourth is the Intellectual Sheath
( Vijnanamaya Kosha ) and the final sheath is the Bliss Sheath ( Ananda
Maya Kosha ). The Bliss Sheath is found to consist of the positive energy
associated with the Divine Self. It is from this sheath that the inner peace
characteristic of true Bliss emanates.
Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )
A different but parallel model of human personality was developed by the
Tantras. Whereas the Upanishads speak of Five Sheaths or Koshas,
the Tantras speak of six chakras. These Chakras are ( in ascending order)
1. Root Chakra ( Muladhara )
2. Anal Chakra ( Manipura )
3. Solar Plexus Chakra ( Swadhistana )
4. Heart Chakra ( Anahata )
5. Throat Chakra ( Vishuddhi )
6. Eyebrow Chakra ( Ajna )
Life is regarded as the unfolding of the Self at six different levels of
consciousness known as Chakras in the magnificent Tantric Model.
In mundane people the unfolding takes place only at the first three
chakras which represent procreation, metabolism & speech; the
higher three chakras remain latent. The awakening of the higher
chakras results in the unfolding and fulfillment of Life Divine. When
the Kundalini, the Serpentine Power inherent in humans, rises from
the Root Chakra ( Muladhara ) to the Crown Chakra ( Sahasrara ),
man achieves Cosmic Consciousness.
The Spirit shall take up the human play
The earthly life become the Life Divine!
