About Alan Payne FGNI MAMH
Naturopathic Iridologist, Herbalist and Tutor.
Alan Payne Herbal Medicine
Natural healing focuses on creating those conditions which help to make a healthier person, and herbal medicines are used the world over to help to encourage and strengthen the body’s natural capacity to heal itself. Herbalists are trained to treat the patient as a whole person, not just a collection of symptoms, and herbs are used effectively and safely to treat a wide range of conditions, such as skin problems, digestive disorders, muscular and joint pain, hormonal imbalances, stress and anxiety to name but a few.
The aim is to help improve the standard of a patient’s general health and vitality and create balance within the body. Herbal products are prepared from plants or plant parts in their ‘whole’ state, rather than by using just a few isolated chemicals, and this means that the active ingredients are provided in a balanced form as nature intended.

If you look closely at the iris (the coloured part surrounding the pupil) in someone’s eye you will see a pattern of colours, textures and markings unique to that person. Together these features form a map, a blueprint, which gives an Iridologist valuable information about a person’s inherited strengths and weaknesses and general state of well-being. Many illnesses occur because of an organ or system imbalance – for instance headaches can be the result of liver dysfunction – and iridology can help to reveal such causes.
Iris analysis is not used to directly diagnose specific illnesses, but it is used, together with other information gained during the consultation, to help to decide upon the best course of action to take. Iris examination is simple, painless and non-invasive. Illuminated lenses are used so that the markings and colours in each iris can be more easily seen and analysed, and usually photographs of the eyes are taken so that the findings can be clearly shown and explained to the patient.
