Iridology is based on the scientific study of the iris, the colored 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:
- The condition of the nerves
- The condition of the blood and lymph system
- Adequate circulation
- Nutrition – rest quality, breathing – state of mind
- Overall health awareness
- Understanding how the organs interact
- Knowing which organs are under or over active
- Becoming familiar with the body’s overall chemistry
- Knowing the conditions of the nervous, digestive, elimination, lymphatic and structural systems of the body.
- Inflammation Spotting
- Reveals areas in the body where acidity has or can accumulate
- Body activity levels
- Problem spotting
It is this tissue change that takes place in the patient that makes iridology especially valuable for those specializing in the treatment of chronic diseases. Nature has provided us with an invaluable insight into the vital status of the health of the body by transmitting this information to the eye.
