What Is Iridology?
Iridology (pronounced eye-ri-dology) is the art and science of analyzing the color and structure of the iris to determine tissue integrity throughout the body, thereby gaining valuable health information regarding strengths and weaknesses. Iridologists study the iris, particularly the color, markings, changes and other aspects, as they are associated with tissue degeneration. Iridology is one form of analysis that is non-invasive to the body…requiring no cutting, x-raying or use of any other invasive technique to complete the analysis.
What can you tell from Iridology
By studying the iris of both eyes, a qualified iridologist can obtain information about all parts of the body simultaneously. The iris reveals our inherited health disposition, our tendency towards health problems, our current health conditions, and gives advance warning of what may occur in the future. This is powerful knowledge and can help us take care of our bodies so these tendencies do not become reality. Today, early detection of health imbalances and prompt correction is vitally important. Iridology is a tool of assessment for current conditions and for preventive healthcare.
How is Iridology performed?
A practitioner skilled in iris analysis uses either a hand held light source and a small magnifying lens, or for more extensive analysis a special camera is used for taking prints, slides, or digital pictures allowing the practitioner the ability to study the iris at length before completing the analysis. Iridology remains somewhat controversial because of its struggle for acceptance by contemporary allopathic medicine as a valid examination method. It is used by many doctors in European countries as a regular part of diagnosis. It is part of a larger family of the numerous branches of the natural healing arts. Its partner is the art and science of nutrition.
