Preface to the Fourth Edition
Medical astrology is a highly specialized branch of Vedic astrology. Over the past few years, this subject has undergone great evolution, and this process continues. No longer are the age old inhibitions of the medical fraternity in evidence, and more and more medical personnel are taking up the study of this exalted discipline. Astrologers in general too are concentrating more on this branch of astrology which, if sufficiently developed, can immensely help the suffering patient as well as his treating physician.
The revision and upgradation of the fourth edition of the Essentials of Medical Astrology is a result of our continued endeavour to make medical astrology eminently useful for the suffering humanity. New material has been added and some of the older concepts modified in view of our continuous research in this area. The highly scientific approach to the study of this subject has been maintained throughout the book. We hope this new and upgraded edition of the Essentials of Medical Astrology better serves the medical as well as the astrological fraternity.
