Science of Iridology

The science of iridology is based on the analysis of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body: the iris. It is a method whereby, the doctor can tell from markings or signs visible on the iris: the reflex condition of various organs and systems of the body.

These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body, its constitutional strength, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherent strengths and weaknesses.

The laboratory testing procedures practiced today, which are not always necessary, are expensive, time consuming and often, uncomfortable to the patient. With iridology, we have a simple, painless, economical and non-invasive way of looking into the body.

This is not to say that it should exclude other forms of analysis. On the contrary, it may be employed in conjunction with any other system of analysis or diagnosis. It is this tissue change that takes place in the patient that makes iridology especially valuable for those specializing in the treatment of chronic diseases.

The iris, however, can indicate a problem in its earliest inception, long before disease symptoms are present. With this information, a health program can be developed which is tailored to the specific needs of the patient, thus preventing the manifestation of disease.

Iridology, in its basic philosophy, stresses the treatment of the patient, not the disease. By identifying the underlying imbalances in the body that produce symptoms, it is an invaluable asset in the formulation of a natural therapy programme.

The iris reveals, through changes in pigment and structure, abnormal conditions of tissue in the human body. The anterior of the iris reflexly corresponds in the systematic organisation of its topography to the major tissues structures of the body, such that each organ, gland and tissue is represented in a specific location in the left iris, the right iris, or both.

Organs and tissues on the left half of the body are reflexly represented in the left iris, while those of the right half of the body are represented in the right iris. Organs and tissues lying along the centreline of the body, the sagittal plane, appear in both irides, as do bilateral organs.

Inherent weaknesses, inherent strengths and the degree of nervous system sensitivity are all shown respectively on the iris.
