The best time for taking medicine is Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, coinciding with Hasta, Aswini, Chittra and Punarvasu respectively and especially at the time when the Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus occupy their own vargas and a moveable Rasi or Amsa is rising. Persons suffering from Typhoid or enteric should begin treatment on a Sunday coinciding with the 4th, 9th or 14th lunar day not ruled respectively by Aridra, Bharani and Visakha. Ugra yogas arise when the 3rd (or 9th), 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 12th (or 3rd) and 13th lunar days coincide respectively with Rohini, Uttara, Sravana, Mrigasira. Revats, Krittika, Pushva, Anuradha.

Swift, light, Immediate. Here in Astrology the word Kshipra is used as a technical term of Laghu Nakshatra. In this context the Kshipra Constellation is Aswini star. The deity for Aswini Nakshatra is Aswini Kumar Twins, the physician of the Gods. The Puranas relate that the two Aswini Kumaras were born of mother Sanga and father Ravi. Ashwini nakshatra falls in the zodiac sign of Mesha, which is ruled by the aggressive and fiery planet Mars. ii) Ugram:- Ugra means Fierce, severe, cruel, ferocious, savage etc.. in Sanskrit here the Ugra Constellation is Bharani star. The energy of Bharani is called ugra or krura, which translates as harsh, powerful, hot, formidable and fierce. iii).Chara :- Chara means Ephemeral, mutable or transient, moving, going etc..Mesha, Kataka, Thula and Makara constellations are called Chara Raasis or Movable signs.

Conclusion:- Malefics in houses other than 3 and 11, and benefics in 3, 6, 12 and 8 indicate bad health. Planets in 6, 8 and 12 give a clue to the disease. The region of the affection is determined according to the nature of the Lagna. The thridoshas and the seasons ruled by the afflicting planet, etc., also give a clue to the period of disease. Diseases are classified into two types — Nija or natural and Aguntaka or acquired. Nija ailments are divided into sarirotha or those relating to the body and chittotha or mental afflictions. Sarirotha afflictions arise out of imbalance in vatha (wind), kapha (phlegm), pitta (bile) or a mixture of the three. They are treated besides well-known methods of Ayurveda by supplementing the prescribed flavour or taste in food, viz., sweet, sour, bitter, hot, salt and kashaya in different combinations, Aguntaka diseases are sub-divided into Drishtanimitiya or of known origin and Adrishtanimitiya or arising out of unknown causes.
