In the chart example in Figure 2 the Moon has the most hard aspects to it. The planets with two hard aspects are also suspect of creating moderate deficiency potentials and should be included in the notations as well. The medical astrologer then puts the planets down in the following order:

Moon: potassium and riboflavin. Sun: vitamins A and D, magnesium and iodine. Mercury: thiamine. Jupiter: vitamin B-6, cholin, inositol, biotin, sulfur, manganese, chromium, zinc and pangamic acid. Neptune: pantothenic acid and laetrile. Pluto: orotic acid.

Thus there is the potential for this person to be deficient in one or more of these vitamins and minerals—but not all of them. To eliminate the weaker possibilities a medical astrologer should consult the chapters on vitamins and minerals and read the list of deficiency symptoms for each vitamin and mineral. If the person's symptoms fit one or more of the deficiency symptoms, the information should be written down for later reference.

Some of the potential deficiencies can be dismissed or assumed to be neglibible almost at once. For example, it is very rare that a person has a deficiency of laetrile or orotic acid. With such deficiencies a person would be suspect of contracting cancer or multiple sclerosis. And if an individual does not exhibit signs of either illness after proper testing by a doctor, these potential deficiencies can be overlooked because there is no proof for them to be considered.

Deficiencies of fluorine, cobalt, molybdenum, phosphorus, selenium and chlorine are also quite rare. And a person should first be tested for any such deficiencies before taking supplements because these minerals can have toxic side effects in many cases.

Next, a person's medical history should be examined. The medical history of the woman whose chart is reproduced in Figure 2 is as follows:

Age 5: Rheumatic fever that left a heart murmur until she was 12 years old. Age 6: Scarlet fever that left her kidneys weak. Age 9: Yellow jaundice that caused malfunction of her liver. Ages 21-23: Monthly bouts with cystitis or bladder infections plus kidney infections that resulted in "kidney ache" and her having to drink a lot of liquids. Ages 21-26: She took birth control pills. She finally quit taking them because they gave her a hyperthyroid and hypoglycemia. The thyroid and pancreas were affected by the pills but malfunction very slightly today because she watches her diet carefully.

Using the chapters on vitamins and minerals, a medical astrologer then matches the findings of potential nutritional deficiences against a person's medical history. The example chart in Figure 2 indicates that this woman is potentially deficient in several vitamins and minerals:

Potassium: A person normally has a weight increase, edema, weakness in the female organs, low grade infections in the bladder or constriction of the urethra tube with a deficiency of potassium. Other, more serious signals are the inability to digest sugar, stomach distension and impaired kidney function. This woman's past medical history shows severe bouts with bladder and kidney infections. So, potassium should be noted as a needed mineral.

Riboflavin: Mild symptoms of insufficient riboflavin are cracks and sores at the corners of the mouth and skin problems. Hypoglycemia may also develop. Furthermore, without enough riboflavin and pantothenic acid yellow jaundice can occur. Since her past medical history shows both yellow jaundice and hypoglycemia, riboflavin should be marked down as a needed supplement.

Vitamins A and D: Night blindness and frequent bouts of respiratory ailments, such as chest colds and pneumonia, are often symptoms of deficiencies of vitamins A and D. Since her medical record shows very poor eyesight and an inability for her eyes to adjust quickly to darkness, a small supplement of these vitamins should be considered to aid in clearing up her visual problems.

Magnesium: Sensitivity to noise, a continual state of depression and heart palpitations are normal signals of a lack of magnesium. Since she has none of these symptoms, the possibility that this nutrient is deficient should be disregarded.

Iodine: A deficiency of iodine is usually felt in the thyroid: anyone with a hyper-or hypothyroid is suspect of a lack of iodine. After taking birth control pills this woman had poor thyroid function; subsequently, she received medication containing iodine in it to force the thyroid to work normally.

Vitamin B-6 and chromium: There are numerous symptoms of a deficiency of vitamin B-6, including hypoglycemia and diabetes. Chromium is also linked with sugar-related problems. Since this woman has a hypoglycemic condition, both the vitamin and mineral should be marked down as being needed.

Choiin, inositol and biotin: It is nearly impossible to get a deficiency of biotin unless one consumes a large number of raw eggs: then, hair will generally fall out, and skin problems will arise. Both choiin and inositol are connected with the making of lecithin within the body. Gallbladder problems, high cholesterol count and several other symptoms must be present to consider these vitamins deficient. The woman has no history of digestive problems, nor does she exhibit skin or hair problems; therefore, these three vitamins should not be considered lacking.

Pangamic acid: Symptoms of diminished oxygen in the body, causing heart strain or atherosclerosis, are normally associated with a deficiency of this vitamin. Although this woman has a heart murmur, it was the consequence of rheumatic fever at an early age and has nothing to do with the oxygenation process in her body. The vitamin should not be considered lacking.

Sulfur: Problems with the hair, skin and nails are the common signals for insufficient sulfur. Since this woman has no known history of these kind of health problems, sulfur should not be considered deficient.

Manganese: Mental gyrations, depression and diabetes can be signals that this nutrient is needed. Since this woman has hypoglycemia, the oppposite of diabetes, this mineral should not be considered deficient.

Pantothenic acid: Among numerous other symptoms adrenal exhaustion can occur when this vitamin is lacking, perhaps causing a hypoglycemic problem. Because this woman suffers from hypoglycemia, this vitamin should be marked down as needed to help the condition.

Laetrile: Laetrile is only linked with cancer. She has no past family hstory of cancer on either the mother's or the father's side; therefore, this vitamin should not be considered.

Orotic acid: Liver disorders, cell degeneration and premature aging are symptoms of a deficiency of this vitamin. Having contracted yellow jaundice, she may be suspect of needing this nutrient, and it should be marked down.
