Medical astrology research in muscular dystrophy will elucidate the connection between genetics and astrology.Muscular dystrophy (MD) refers to a groupof genetic, hereditary muscle diseases that cause progressive muscle weakness. Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue. These conditions are all inherited, and the different muscular dystrophies follow various inheritance patterns.
The following nine diseases, Duchenne, Becker, limbgirdle, congenital, facioscapulohumeral, myotonic, oculopharyngeal, distal, and Emery-Dreifuss are always classified as muscular dystrophy though more than hundred belong to this classification. Most types of MD are multi-system disorders with manifestations in body systems including the heart, gastrointestinal and nervous systems, endocrine glands, skin, eyes and other organs.
As part of our broader initiative on medical astrology research, we are initiating a program to explore the link between genetics and astrology in case of Muscular Dystrophy so that Personalized medicine can be tailored for individual needs. We welcome the community to participate in this project to make it a success. The community participation can be at various levels as outlined here:
- Provide the birth data, time and place information of Muscular Dystrophy patients via our decisioncare. Accuracy of data is very important. The next is to provide also the same data for other family members (even larger or distant family members). This information will be very useful to establish the genetic heredity link.
- Participate in the project by providing technical expertise (from medicine, bioinformatics,bioenginnering to astrology or any other constructive advice)
- Companies like 23andMe, Illumina are most welcome if they like to carry out genetic testing of the participants (if they consent) to establish the link.
