How to Give an Astrological Health Reading by Diane L. Cramer

If you're interested in learning a lot or a little about medical astrology, this is the book for you. Written with beginners in mind, Diane Cramer brings her expertise as a teacher and lecturer on nutrition and medical astrology, as well as 22 years of nutritional guidance and astrological counseling on health matters to this clearly, concisely written book.

Medical astrology, as noted by the author, has three areas of strength: judging the natal chart in terms of health, including natural immunities, possible disease indicators, weak points in the body and nutritional deficiencies; furnishing extra information to aid in determining severity and duration of an existing condition; and explaining an illness that traditional medicine has been unable to diagnose or cure.

The book begins with a thorough chapter on signs and planets as they are used in medical astrology, including diseases associated with each sign, planetary actions and reactions to disease and aspects. Next is easy to follow, step-by-step, how-to information on analyzing a natal horoscope for health indicators, followed by predictive techniques in medical astrology. Case studies include breast cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Special sections on homeopathy and cell salts complete this excellent work.
