What is Iridology?
Iridology, or Iris Analysis is a method of alternative medicine that is used to analyze a person’s health status by examining the components of the iris, pupil, colour and sclera of the human eye. The eyes are the windows of the soul; they are also the map to our bodies.
Every organ is connected to the iris via the nervous system and the nerve fibers receive impulses through the optic nerve, optic thalami, and the spinal cord. The iris is an extension of the brain endowed with many thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, as well as muscle and connective tissue.
There are noticeable changes as we grow older or our health changes. These changes can appear as marks or clouds in the iris, the pupils, or sclera of your eyes. Iridologists can assess an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional health, through iris analysis and guide them to improve their well being.
Iridology does not reveal specific pathology (medical diseases), rather it reflects hereditary tendencies and condition of the tissues (I.E. inflammation, acidity, toxicity, and congestion). Iridology is therefore not concerned with specific symptoms, but with the restoration and maintenance of health by strengthening the body’s immunity and healing ability.
The initial appointment is approximately 15 minutes. The practitioner will take a photo of the client’s eyes (if possible) and then will schedule a time to review the findings. The follow up, usually takes 1.5 hrs. During which, the practitioner will discuss protocols to align lifestyle and nutrition, addressing the findings and the client’s needs.
