Iridology is the study of the Iris, the coloured part of the eye that surrounds the pupil. An Iridologist uses a light and a magnifier to examine the colour and structure of the iris to determine your body health.
Your eye (including the iris) is formed during early foetal development from the same tissue as the brain, so is connected to every organ and tissue in the body through the nervous system. Your iris is as individual as a fingerprint – no two irises are exactly alike.
What can Iridology tell us about our body health?
Iridology can be used to understand your inherent strengths and weaknesses. The physical structure of the Iris does not change throughout life however pigmentation can accumulate over time. The colour of pigment deposits can give an indication of what body systems may require support. For example orange pigment may indicate blood sugar imbalance, brown relates to liver and gallbladder function and yellow can indicate the influence of kidney function.
By observing the fiber structure, fibre density, openings, general colour and accumulated pigmentation an iridologist can gather information to understand what body systems are strong and which systems may need some extra nurturing and support.
The structure of your iris also reflects your genetic makeup so can show family patterns of health. This is powerful knowledge and can help you take care of your health to prevent future problems.
What Iridology cannot do?
- Diagnose disease e.g. cancer, gallstones or kidney stones
- Show broken bones, previous surgery or pregnancy
- Give a psychic reading
- Replace ophthalmology
