Iridology is the study of the coloured portion of the eye. There is some evidence that iridology has been practised since the time of the Egyptians. Iridology or iris diagnosis, is a non-invasive system using a magnified torch and iriscope which analysis the iris of the eye to look at structural markings and pigments in the iris which carry genetic and constitutional traits and weaknesses.
Findings are discussed in the consultation with a view to understanding underlying contributing pathways to a condition to help pinpoint the correct method of treat it and support optimum health.
No two people in the world have the exact same markings or characteristics in their eyes although similar recorded patterns may exist. There are an estimated 200 differentiating signs in the average iris based on empirical observations over many hundreds of years. In Russia, iridology research has been funded by the state, and is taught to doctors in French hospitals and also in Germany.
What can iridology detect
Iridology is a naturopathic diagnostic tool that offers a very personalised treatment and has been used to identify genetically-determined predispositions in addition to medical history, lifestyle and exogenous disease-causing factors by looking for specific iris signs such as changes in structure and pigmentation or markings. Genetic hereditary disposition accounts for 80% of all defect markings.
Iridology is useful for identifying congenital weaknesses that may be prevented from turning into chronic disease states.
In helping us to understand different constitutional types and what different factors come into play when determining cause of symptoms, including level of resistance and reactivity. Iridology also shows us how to improve health problems which have already manifested. The iris will give an understanding to the patient’s constitutional type, which gives a better indicator of diet and lifestyle changes that need to be implemented in order to optimise health.
