How gem therapy can help treat respiratory ailments

While there are a number of mainstream treatments for respiratory ailments, but here is an all natural treatment for the condition with gem therapy.

Respiratory diseases have become the really common these days. And with the winters setting in the number of people suffering from these ailments has only increased. The reason for respiratory ailments may vary; while some individuals are born with a constitution that makes them allergic to certain foods or substances, some have to work in conditions that expose them to pollutants and irritants of different types, and in some cases unhealthy habits like smoking can also make the condition worse. Here's how Vedic astrology or gem stone therapy can help treat respiratory ailments.

Medical astrology offers several clues to how and why the diseases arise and where the solution may lie. Respiratory diseases affect the nose, throat and the lungs. The most important thing to understand here is that one must study the horoscope of the individual carefully to determine the solution. Here are some points to consider:

  • Lungs are represented by the dual sign of Gemini and that should be the first point of focus. Wherever the sign of Gemini is in the horoscope, if it is afflicted or negatively aspected, will lead to vulnerability of the lungs.
  • Mercury, the natural ruler of the sign of Gemini must be assessed for its planetary strength respiratory problems may be found if it is weak or debilitated.
  • One also must look for planet Saturn's influence on the sign of Gemini or on Mercury itself. Saturn is a planet that is described as a planet that is cold, dry, anxious, slow moving and obstructionist. If it happens to be conjunct with Mercury or negatively impacting it, respiratory health is affected.
  • Another planet Rahu which is likened to Planet Uranus is western astrology, is described as illusory or smoky now here, gone again! It is a general understanding, in astrology that the planetary energy manifests itself as energetically similar events or diseases in a person. This planetary energy represents spasmodic action in the human body system. If Rahu happens to be afflicting Mercury or is conjunct it would represent a pulmonary difficulty accompanied by a symptom like violent coughing.

To treat respiratory ailments, an astro-gemologist must first (as a rule of thumb) consider strengthening the lagna lord/ the ascendant lord to restore good health. Secondly, if Mercury can be given strength (only done if Mercury or Budh is a natural yogkaraka or benefic for the individual in question), a natural, treatment-free emerald may be prescribed. Natural peridot is the upratna or the substitute gem of emerald and these gems harness the powers of Mercury. Emerald or peridot may be cast in silver or gold as a talisman ring and worn in the little finger for best results and gain of health.
