What is Iridology?
Iridology is a gentle, non-invasive way to study the color, pigmentations, and structure of the iris of the eye as they relate genetically to the strengths and deficiencies of the body systems. Every cell in your body reflects itself through the nervous system to the brain and optic nerves. As tissues become weakened and congested, changes occur in the fibers of the iris of the eye. This is because the iris contains blood vessels that connect to the entire nervous system. When there is a change in the nervous system connected to a gland, organ or system of the body, this is reflected in the iris of the eye. This is called a reflex response. Much of this is genetic, therefore taking place in the womb before the child is even born. Iridology is a master science in genetics.
The iris fibers have been mapped out correspondingly to the related tissues in the body. By observing these fibers, changes, and colors in the iris, we can analyze your body’s strengths, weaknesses and toxicity levels related to specific areas of the body. Genetic deficiencies in the body are represented in the corresponding area of the iris as structural deviations in the iris fibers or pigmentations. As iridologists, we learn to “read” and understand the meaning of the patterns that are located in the iris of the eye. Like fingerprints and snowflakes, no two eyes are alike! Each color and marking has a unique meaning to that individual.
Although the science of Iridology is at least 3,000 years old and used worldwide, it is still essentially a “sleeping giant” in the United States, but it is growing in recognition and acceptance quite rapidly. The “Father of Iridology” in the United States is Dr. Bernard Jensen. Before his death in 2001 (at the age of 92), he wrote numerous books on Iridology, nutrition, and health as well as spent countless hours lecturing and teaching.
What can you tell from Iridology?
Through iris analysis, areas of the body that lack vitality to resist illness due to genetic predispositions can be determined and supported through proper nutrition and holistic healing methods. It is one of the best assessment tools available to be able to identify the areas of the body that are genetically strong, as well as deficient.
Iridology is of particular importance when working with children. To determine a child’s genetic weaknesses, and support them at a young age with proper herbs and nutrition, means they do not necessarily have to struggle with these weaknesses passed down through family lines. In fact, it is documented that the eyes can change and become genetically stronger in future generations, contrary to popular mainstream belief.
What Can I Expect In My Appointment?
Iridology is an excellent tool for assessing current health conditions and for preventive health care. In your first visit (approximately 15 minutes), you will have a picture taken of both of your eyes. This is not an invasive process, and you should have no adverse effects from the iris photography.
After your pictures are done, a certified Iridologist will assess the iris of both eyes from the photographs. It takes about a week for our iridologists to complete the analysis. The photograph of the iris will reveal your inherited health disposition and tendency towards health concerns or problems. Our Iridologists will create a detailed report (like this one) that will help you understand your potential health risk factors if they are not addressed.
During your second visit, an Iridologist will go over this report with you and answer any questions you may have on prevention. This powerful knowledge can help you care for your body, so these tendencies do not become a reality. Early detection of health imbalances and prompt correction is critical. The second visit is either 30 minutes for a Standard Iridology Analysis appointment or 1 hour for a Comprehensive Iridology Analysis appointment.
