What is Iridology?

Iridology is based on the scientific study of the iris — the coloured part of the eye. Like markings on a map, the iris reveals physiological conditions, psychological health risks, challenges and/or strengths of various organs and personality traits.

Through iridology we can get an understanding of your past, present, and potential future health conditions by assessing the various body systems. Your inherited tendencies compounded by toxic accumulations in various parts of your body are also revealed.

The Science of Iridology is based on the analogy of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body – the iris.

It is a method whereby the doctor or health practitioner can tell, from markings or signs in the iris, the reflex condition of various organs and systems of the body. These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body; it’s constitutional potentials, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherent challenges and gifts.

 

The four principles that form the cornerstones of iridology are:


  1. The condition of the nerves
  2. The condition of the blood and lymph system
  3. Adequate circulation
  4. Nutrition – rest quality, breathing – state of mind


Consulting an iridologist will help you determine:

  • Your constitutional strengths and weaknesses.
  • Nutritional deficiencies.
  • Areas of injury, inflammation or degeneration.
  • Accumulation of toxins.
  • Emotional issues.

 

Iridology and Natural Health


As a natural health practitioner, we take into account the whole person. We look beyond a “disease” to the whole person. We must remember that diseases do not create us, we create disease. And we must also remember that we don’t “catch” diseases. We create disease and disorder by breaking down our natural defences by the way we eat, drink, think, feel and the lifestyle we live. The emphasis on healing must include the whole person, not just the disease. Iridology helps us look at the “whole person” and determine levels of health throughout the body.
