What is Iridology?
Iridology is the science and practice of analysing the iris, the most complex tissue structure in the human anatomy.
Iridology can reveal:
- The presence of tissue inflammation in your body, and where it is located.
- Your constitutional strength.
- Inherent weaknesses.
- State of health.
How can the iris reveal the state of the body?
According to physiology texts, 28,000 individual nerve fibres connect every cell in the body with the thousands of fine fibres in the iris (the colour part of the eye). Under magnification, the iris appears as a magnificent landscape, with variations in the fibres revealing the health of various tissues and organ systems in the body.
What does an iridology analysis involve?
A trained practitioner (such as a Naturopath) examines your iris through a loupe – a magnifying glass with a light. The practitioner analyses the iris fibre structure, colour and landmark features of the iris and compares with an iridology chart which maps the iris with corresponding areas of the body.
Diet and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, herbal medicines and physical therapies may then be recommended to optimise your health according to what the iris reveals.
An iridology analysis is usually performed as part of a naturopathic consultation, along with a thorough case history and other tests.
