What is Iridology?
When people are asked what they look at first when they notice an attractive person, several answers come to mind; some say they notice how a person walks or what a person is wearing. Some notice the perfume or cologne they wear, some take notice of the type of body, or the color and style of hair. However a great proportion of people notice the eyes of a person, for the eyes are often described as the windows to our soul. When we look at people’s eyes, we can often determine whether people are lying, whether they are angry or whether they are in love. We often can tell whether people are tired or not feeling well because the eyes will appear dull or lack the usual sparkle when people are not in the best of health. The eye is not only the window to our soul; the eye is a map to our body.

Have you ever noticed that there often appear clouds or marks in the iris of your eyes and these often change depending on your state of health or age? Have you noticed that your left eye is different than your right eye? If you have, congratulations, as many people believe that their eye color remains the same all of their lives.

The eyes, mirror the state of health of our entire body. That is right, the iris of the eye is actually a map where each place represents a different body organ or system.

The History of Iridology
Iridology dates back hundreds of years, but the first iris map developed was in the early 1800’s by a doctor named Ignatz von Pezcely in Hungary. He is known as the father of iridology. In his childhood it is written that he captured an injured owl in his backyard that had a broken leg. He noticed in one of its eyes that there was a black line but when the leg healed, a white mark appeared where the dark mark was. This incident started a life-long interest and study of iridology. Since then, many scientists, doctors, and health professionals around the world have studied iridology. Iridology is taught in countries like America, Australia, Germany, Russia, and South Africa where even modern medicine has begun to take notice.

Iridology Explained
Iridology can be defined as the science of observing, studying and analyzing signs in the iris (the coloured part of the eye).

The iris signs reflect the genetic inherited pattern in constitutions, together with structural, colour and neurological changes that occur within the iris over a period of time. These signs may indicate abnormal tissue conditions.

Iridology is simply an analytical process used as a diagnostic technique to complement any health care science or approach. The iridologist assesses structure and colour variations, as well as markings that occur in the coloured part of the eye.

An iridology assessment provides the trained iridologist with information about the root causes of ailments, strengths and weaknesses of all organ systems and tissues within the body, as well as genetic inherited disease patterns. So it provides information about the over all state of health.

A great advantage of iridology is that it also provides information about the status of vital processes in the body. By vital processes we mean both disease causing (e.g. poor waste clearance) and health maintaining processes (e.g. blood circulation). It allows the practitioner to detect signs of biochemical and physiological needs and changes in the body before symptoms of disease appear.

Iridology thus provides the iridologist with a basic framework to describe the pathway to a current illness or disease and to explain the course of past or future disease processes. In this way it can help you to understand your basic health issues and enlighten you about improving your health as well as taking preventative health measures.

The advantages of Iridology
• Iridology is a safe, powerful, non invasive tool that can be used by practitioners with medical diagnostic skills.
• In primary health care, iridology is a most valuable technique. It is extremely cost effective and as it provides immediate information, no time is wasted.
• Iridology signs will often be present long before gross pathology is observed, and can therefore be used effectively in the implementation of preventative health care.
• Iridology may provide information about vital processes in the body, so that signs of biochemical and physiological needs and can be detected before the appearance of symptoms. This includes information about tissue changes, toxic deposits, poor circulation and poor waste clearance.
• Iridology may provide information about vital processes in the body. is not a psychic or spiritual analysis
• Because iridology provides an overview of the over all state of health (including present and inherited disease patterns) it provides a framework for assessing future limitations and potential’s of a patient’s health.
