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. Each part of the iris relates to a particular organ or system in the body, and genetically acquired signs allow the iridologist to easily assess someone’s inherited constitution.
The information gained from an iridology consultation is specific to each person. It is invaluable in the planning of treatment for current health problems and also gives positive help towards future well-being.
Iridology is not used to directly diagnose specific illnesses. An iridologist does not see the disease itself, but sees the conditions out of which the disease manifests. Naturally many illnesses occur because of an organ or system imbalance – for instance headaches can be the result of liver dysfunction – and iridology can reveal such causes.
Iris examination is non-invasive and painless. 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 and shown on a computer screen so that the findings can be clearly shown and explained. The great majority of people find an iridology assessment to be a fascinating and greatly informative experience.
