Tripod of Good Health
Vedic Astrology can be used along with Ayurveda and Yoga to not only know the body type but also give appropriate treatment. Think of Astrology, Ayurveda and Yoga as three stands of a tripod which can provide a healthy life to the native. A person can predict the exact time when risk of catching a certain disease might increase using Vedic Astrology. Afterwards he can try the associated Yoga Postures, Pranayam and Mudra Vigyaan(Science) to try and prevent the disease. If by chance a native does get infected then he can use Ayurveda and associated Diet to effectively cure the disease and remove it completely from the body.
The Data Dilemma
Every field of knowledge requires extensive research, data collection and practical application to show its effectiveness. This hasn't yet been done that effectively for Vedic Way of Life and what research might have been done in the past has been lost in Sands of Time. A new approach along with Quantified Data would be required to show that the combination of Astrology, Ayurveda and Yoga can be used to gain a healthy body and better all round life.
