The overuse of an over-the-counter drug frequently will alert a medical astrologer to a problem. For example, a person who takes aspirin (Neptune) all the time may have kidneys that are clogged or in a state of spasm, not fully emptying out the poisons and toxins accumulated from the body. Hence, the material is passed back into the bloodstream, triggering headaches. Even if a person has never had ailments of the kidney, excessive intake of aspirin could suggest that the kidneys are a possible root cause of a problem, and they should be checked out.
Moreover, over-the-counter drugs can usually be replaced by medical herbs, which will do just as good a job, are more inexpensive and kinder on the body. For instance, sleeping pills bought from a drug store can be substituted with herbs such as valerian root, skullcap, hops or blue vervain — if the doctor agrees.1
