What exactly is iridology, you may be wondering? Iridology is the scientific analysis of patterns and structures in the iris of the eye. Studying these patterns could help locate areas and stages of inflammation throughout the body. Your iris is the part of your eye that is colored. It could reveal your body’s constitution, current strengths and weaknesses, and health levels. Iridology does not actually diagnose disease, but it could help determine the condition of various tissues and organs in your body. And from there, questions about your health can be asked and lead the way for other diagnostic tools to discover specific problems.
A complete iris analysis could show whether a person exhibits a strong constitution or a poor one, depending upon the density of the iris fibers, the patterns, structures, colors and degrees of lightness and darkness in the iris could tell if an area of your body is either strong or weak. It could also reveal the approximate site of general health problems. Things like over-activity, irritation, injury or degeneration of the tissues and organs might be identified. Iridology and the study of the iris chart could reveal toxic accumulation levels as well as nutritional and chemical imbalances.
In one clinical study, 57 hospitalized patients were examined using the practice of iridology. All 57 patients also had conventional medical records of their various conditions. Researchers compared the results from the iridology examinations and the pre-existing medical records. They concluded that “iris examination can be very useful for diagnosis of a certain general pathology, in a holistic approach of the patient.”
Iridology could provide a picture of the state of your whole body at a glance. This all-encompassing view could help to determine if one area of your body is negatively affecting another. For example, a tipped uterus might be caused by a prolapsed colon. And the prolapsed colon may in turn be caused by a weak lower back. Iridology could help identify such pathways so that treatment can be more effective and holistic. If another diagnostic tool was used and all that was discovered was that the uterus was tipped, treatment might be focused in the wrong area.
Check online for practitioners of iridology in your area. You might find it useful to book a session and see what the iris chart reveals about your health. Iridology is used by herbalists, homeopathic doctors, and naturopathic doctors. Some medical practitioners believe that iridology doesn’t work. Others have used this technique for decades in private practices and can vouch for its effectiveness.
