In the Vedas and many classics of Astrology and Ayurved ( Prasna Marga , CharakSamhita ) we can find descriptions of the methods of Vedic astrology as well asAyurvedic healing. No one need be surprised at the relationship between the two. Ayurveda, as Vedic astrology, originates in the Vedic traditions.
Vaidyas are devoted to Atharva Veda, because it has dealt with the subject of Medicine. Prescribing donation, propitiatory rites, offerings,auspicious rites,oblations, observance of rules, expiations, fasting, incantations, etc.., and medicine for promotion of life.- Charak Samhita sutra 30-slok 21

----Vata, Pitta and Kapha are eternally present in the body of living beings either as normal or abnormal. The wise person should know them. sutra 18 -slok 48Similarly Prasna Marga describes —
