The physician is ruled by lagna, disease by the seventh house, medicine by the fourth house and patient by the tenth house. The house of patient is also called the house of recovery. If there be friendship-between patient and physician, and between medicine and disease, the disease may be cured.
If the relation is of enmity, the illness may not be cured. If lagna be occupied by malefic, the disease may be serious due to physician. When lagna is occupied or aspected by benefic and is free from malefic influence, the prescription served will be of benefit to the patient. If malefic be in tenth house, the disease increases due to taking of injurious food at the time of disease.
If Rahu be in lagna and be aspected by Saturn, the medicine works like poison. If benefic be in seventh house, one recovers even without medicine. if benefits aspect seventh house, they suggest recovery from disease. If malefic be in seventh house or aspects the same, the disease will be painful and lingering.
If weak planet be karaka for disease, the same may be recovered by medicine and treatment, but while a strong planet brings the disease, it can hardly be recoverable by medicine and treatment.

Lagna—Simha; Moon in Mesha 3 Ketu in Mithuna; Jupiter R in Karkata; Saturn in Tula; Venus in Brischika; Sun, Mercury and Rahu in Dhanu; Mars in Kumbha.
We know lagna rules the physician, seventh house rules the disease, tenth house rules the patient and fourth house rules the medicine. Tenth house in this horoscope is Brisha rasi, which is aspected by its lord Venus and by strong Mars.
Further Venus is aspected by Jupiter. Which evidently suggests the patient is of high position in society and is likely to be a female.
