A practitioner skilled in iris analysis uses either a hand held light source and a small magnifying lens, or for more extensive analysis a special camera is used for taking prints, slides, or digital pictures allowing the practitioner the ability to study the iris at length before completing the analysis. It is used by many doctors in European countries as a regular part of diagnosis. It is part of a larger family of the numerous branches of the natural healing arts. Its partner is the art and science of nutrition.
The initial appointment takes 45-60 minutes. This includes time for a brief client information session and then photographs are taken. A second appointment is scheduled to return after the film is developed and time is allowed for the comprehensive analysis to be completed and put into writing for the client.
The science of Iridology has been around for at least 3,000 years old and has been used in all parts of the world. The oldest discovered records to date have shown that a form of iris interpretation was used in ancient China as far back as 3,000 years ago…1,000 B.C. St. Luke, in the Bible (Matthew 6:22-23) writes that Jesus Christ said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” Two men “rediscovered” the idea of iris analysis in the nineteenth century and are both held to be the modern day “fathers of iridology.” These were Dr. Ignatz von Peczely of Germany, and Nils Liljequist, a Swedish clergyman. Throughout the years others have contributed greatly to the development of iridology.
