I ran into the following quote from Hippocrates, father of modern medicine.

"A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician."

Hippocrates

What is the relationship between Astrology, health, and health care providers?

Hi Knightinte

Astrology has been used traditionally both for diagnosing ailments and finding appropriate remedies for treatment.

And to this day, there are various types of health practitioners employing it to that end.

I agree. Rather, it is about alternative medicine. Indeed, in the time of Hippocrates there was no such medicine as in our 21st century. At the time of Hippocrates, there were diagnostic methods. Nowadays, all sorts of charlatans still carry out diagnostics with the help of chicken eggs, wax and other nonsense. Instead of telling the person "go to the hospital, do an ultrasound."
