INTRODUCTION As you all know that gems are being used extensively for remedial purposes and moreover it is used to cure various kinds of health problems which fall under the part of the term “Medical Astrology”. In this present age, there are various kinds of diseases in human body being it mental or physical, human mind is stressed with this kind of diseases. But certain things can be understood much before if the birth chart of the concerned person is thoroughly read by any astrologer. But I don’t mean to say that human race by wearing those gems beforehand will not have to face the diseases but I mean to say that the problems will not go to much higher stage and one person will not have to feel many problems after wearing the gems. Shree Ramakrishna Parahamsa said that as you have to pay your taxes if you earn, the same is for human body, but the taxes in the form “diseases”. To write this article I have taken help of the book “Gems in Vedic Astrology” by Neeraj Lalwani. I have given certain conditions when and whom to give gems and some results after wearing the gems. In the next part I have written about Medical Astrology. I hope that this work will help the devotees of Astrology and learner’s can learn from it. Thanking You, Gaurav Ghosh.
