Last time we analyzed the birth chart of a person who developed diabetes and discussed that how the analysis of doshas sitting in different parts of the body helped to cure his disease. This time let us pick another birth chart. As ever we shall confine the reading to medical astrology..
*** Please do go through the previous blogs (click here I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII,VIII, XI) to understand that how exactly Astrology evolved from Ayurveda if you wish to understand this blog in totality..
Here we go….With ketu sitting in the first house in 12th zodiac of Pisces (that of Jupiter) and with Jupiter having its 5th aspect from 9th house, the person has extremely high kapha in the mind (same degree of Ketu and Jupiter makes it even stronger). Such an aggravated kapha has caused hypothyroidism in her leading to severe weight gain. Thus here, hypothyroidism has set in due to extremely sluggish working of Pituitary gland and more importantly Pineal gland which are housed in first house. So in fact, the problem lies not with the thyroid gland but in the Pituitary gland which due to high kapha is not producing enough TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and therefore her hypothyroidism is secondary in nature.
The patient has been taking Eltroxin for several years and has off late developed high BP too due to sluggish mind and therefore sluggish metabolism leading to high kapha in the blood and thus high cholesterol etc.
Because of high kapha towards brain (vis a vis lower body) as confirmed by Ketu- Rahu position, she is one of the few people who needs to eat vasodilating foods (onion, garlic, tea, coffee, chocolate, beetroot, mint, bitter herbs/spices), to reduce excess blood from the brain. Even Arishta and Savas will help her as they will settle excess vata of the lower body. However, they should be eaten only in the morning when she is not lying down to make the blood flow down to the lower body parts with the help of gravity (consuming them and lying down will take more blood towards brain making it more sluggish). Even high BP controlling allopathic medicines of Sartan group will also help her to increase her vata and cure her hypothyroidism.
However, the patient has to be careful that she doesn’t take very high pitta and sour foods especially along with vasodilating foods/medicines as the she is likely to develop inflammation of the lower body (8th house shows debilitated sun that too with mars) and 7th house is excessively high on vata due to Rahu with Saturn’s 10th aspect.
SUGGESTED YOGASANA/PRANAYAMA FOR HER
Saturn in the 10th house shows that patient’s knees are vata ridden and cannot support her excess weight therefore she cannot perform intense exercises like jogging, brisk walk etc to reduce her kapha/weight (on ground too she has painful knees). Instead she should rely more on Bhastrika pranayama which will help to increase pitta and reduce kapha in her.
