Health and Astrology
Sound mind lives in a sound body. Ayurveda states that for attaining any type of progress in life the first equipment needed is healthy body. The great spiritual science states - "Na Ayamatma Balheenen Labhya" which means that that for self-realization healthy body is highly essential and a person having weak body cannot attain his soul. In astrology planet Sun is the biggest significator of Astrology, Ayurveda and Soul. Therefore, those natives in whose birth charts planet Sun is strong succeed in maintaining their immunity and health throughout life. It has been observed that natives having powerful Sun in their chart feel highly frustrated if at some point of life they lose their health and immunity. They leave no stone unturned in their efforts of restoring their immunity. These people are highly successful in their life. They have great leadership and administrative qualities and these natives also become highly successful doctors and rulers. They certainly attain glory and great success in life. So, it seems that there is close relation between Success, Good Health, Sound Mind and Strong Soul.
Sun is the significator of first house in horoscope and this first house also talks about body, health, immunity, happiness and sorrow etc. This also proves again that if significator of immunity and success (Sun) is Karaka of first house (significator house of immunity & personality) then there must be close relation between success and good health.
Whenever the lord of first house is well placed in a Kendra or Trikona in its sign of exaltation and is aspected by benefics and not aspected by malefics then the native earns lot of success, recognition and glory in his life.
If first house is occupied by exalted planet and aspected by benefics only then also the native earns name and fame in his life.
In addition to that the planet having maximum degrees (Atma Karaka) is also considered as most important Karaka of health and success in life. If this planet is exalted in Kendra and Trikona and aspected by benefics then it is a sure indication of good health and success in life.
If none of the above mentioned conditions are favorable in that case the native fails to attain recognition and in addition to that his health also does not remain in good condition.
If sun is debilitated then the native gets debarred of good immunity and recognition both.
If lagna and Lagna lord and Atmakarka all are weak and afflicted the native does not enjoy good immunity and Rajyogas.
The above discussion says that as per astrology health and success are interlinked. One can not enjoy one in case of the absence of other.
Different remedial measures for improving health-

In sandhya karma brahmin looks at sun and chants gayatri mantra through which lord sun is worshipped. Sandhya means time of Sun rise. After sun rise if one looks at sun daily for 30 to 45 minutes immunity gets restored thoroughly and success and intelligence level also goes up.
