An Introduction to Iridology
Iridology is the Study Of The Patterns And Markings In The Iris Of The Eye. For over a hundred years,
various Iridologists have studied these patterns and markings, correlating them with specific health problems,
physical strengths and weaknesses and personality traits. Through these empirical observations, Iridologists
have noted certain constitutional patterns. That is to say, people with similar eye patterns tend to have
similar personality traits and health profiles. These observations are the basis for Constitutional Iridology
Some people believe that the eye is a mirror of what is going on in the body right now and hence, have
endeavored to use Iridology as a diagnostic tool to determine specific disease conditions. Constitutional
Iridology is based on the premise that the patterns and markings in our eye are primarily genetically
inherited. Hence, in Constitutional Iridology, no attempt is made to diagnose any specific disease conditions.
Constitutional Iridology is used to help us understand our basic temperament so we can know how to
balance our nutrition and lifestyle to obtain greater physical, mental and emotional fitness.
An Iridology analysis is for everyone, but not everyone is ready for it. It is a truth that health is not given but
earned. There is no doctor in the world that can give health. When health is lost, or when one wishes to build
a finer mind and body, there must first be education and knowledge and then comes an application of
knowledge which is doing. The greatest single thing the analysis can do is point out one's inherent
weaknesses. We die from our weaknesses. Our weaknesses bring us down, lower our resistance to all
diseases and leave us vulnerable to other problems.
Iridology Can Reveal:
The primary nutritional needs of the body.
Inherently weak organs, glands and tissues.
Inherently strong organs, glands and tissues.
Constitutional strength or weakness.
What organ is in greatest need of repair and rebuilding.
Relative amounts of toxic settlements in organs, glands and tissues.
Stages of tissue inflammation and activity.
Where inflammation is located in the body.
Underactivity or sluggishness of the bowel.
Spastic conditions or ballooned conditions of the bowel.
The need for acidophilus in the bowel.
Prolapsus of the transverse colon.
Nervous condition or inflammation of the bowel.
High risk tissue areas in the body that may be leading to a disease.
Pressure on the heart.
Circulation level in various organs.
Nerve force and nerve depletion.
Hyperactivity or hypoactivity of organs, glands or tissues.
Influence of one organ on another, contribution of one organ to a condition elsewhere in the body.
Lymphatic system congestion.
Poor assimilation of nutrients.
Depletion of minerials in any organ, gland or tissue.
Relative ability of an organ, gland or tissue to hold nutrients.
Results of physical or mental fatigue on the body.
Need for rest to build up immunity.
Tissue areas contributing to suppressed or buried symptoms.
High or low sex drive.
A genetic pattern of inherent weaknesses and their influence on other organs, glands and tissues.
Preclinical stages of potential diabetes, cardiovascular conditions and other diseases.
Recuperative ability and the health level of the body.
Build up of toxic material before the materialization of disease.
Genetic weaknesses affecting the nerves, blood supply and mineralization of bones.
Genetic influence on any symptoms present.
Healing signs indicating an increase in strength in an organ, gland or tissue.
Bone marrow problems.
Potential for varicose veins in legs as shown by inherent weakness.
Positive and negative nutritional needs of the body.
Probably allergy to wheat.
Sources of infection.
Acidity of the body or catarrh development, as indicated by acute signs in the iris.
Suppression of catarrh, as indicated by subacute or chronic signs in the iris.
Condition of the tissue in any part of the body or all parts of the body at one time.
Climate and altitude best for patient.
Potential contributions to sterility.
Effects of polluted environment.
Adrenal suppression, which may indicate low blood pressure, lack of energy, slowed tissue repair,
defiencies of vitamin C and adrenaline.
Resistance to disease, as shown by amount of toxic settlements in the body.
Relationship or unity of symptoms with conditions in organs, glands and tissues.
The difference between a healing crisis and a disease crisis.
The workings of Hering's Law of Cure.
Whether a particular program or therapy is working or not.
The quality of nerve force in the body.
Response to treatment; how well the body is healing itself and at what rate.
The "whole" overall health level of the body as a unified structure.
