What is Iridology?
Iridology is the study of the iris, or coloured part, of the eye. This structure has detailed fibres and pigmentation that reflects information about
our physical and psychological makeup, i.e. a person’s well-being. It identifies inherited dispositions (how our body reacts to our environment and
what symptoms to expect), and future challenges (where we are likely to have more problems as we age). It also helps identify inherited emotional
patterns, which can create or maintain physical symptoms, as well as identify lessons or challenges and gifts or talents available to us.
How Does It Work?
Charts have been plotted which divide the eye up into 7 concentric zones and 45 different sectors associated with the different body systems.
Examining these areas of the iris under magnification for irregularities provides clues to the state of health of the individual. The iris gives clear
genetic possibilities for the individual.
The presence of irregularities does not mean that there is currently a state of ill-health present, but gives a history of past illness, breaks and
weaknesses as well as an indication of possible future problems. Iridology done early in an individual’s life can aid the person in mapping out a life
strategy to ensure health and overall well-being. One can adapt the dietary habits, exercise habits, life direction or career so as to ensure that the
genetic weaknesses indicated do not develop into Pathology in later life.
Current Pathology can also be treated from a diagnosis based on the iris pattern and investigation thereof by normal medical testing. Prognosis
(healing) is also shown as changes on the iris. Iridology therefore gives a reliable source of information for diagnosing a condition, as well an
indication of the effectiveness of healing treatment (prognosis) whether allopathic, naturopathic, herbal or homoeopathic.
The sclera (white of the eye) is a reliable source of information as to the current state of health; and the pattern of the blood vessels indicate low to
high levels of infection or inflammation, toxic levels in the body, blockages, infestations and even carcinogenic (cancerous) changes. It also indicates
healing by changes in the appearance of the blood vessels back to a normal condition.
