Iridology is a quick, accurate, non-invasive, safe and painless system of health analysis through the examination of the coloured part of the eye known as the iris. Proclaimed throughout the ages as "windows of the soul", the eyes are now acknowledged as mirrors of the body and likened to miniature television screens recording the condition of the various organs and tissues throughout the body.

The health analysis is made through a careful examination of the different markings and pigments in the iris, which reflect hereditary tendencies and genetic strengths and weaknesses. The iris records information about the state and functioning of every organ in the body as well as levels of inflammation and toxicity. This enables the underlying cause(s) for symptoms we may experience to be detected and removed using naturopathic remedial programmes specific to each client’s needs.

References to the eye’s value in health assessment can be traced back to numerous ancient scriptures including the Bible. "The light of the body is in the eye, if the eye is sound" (Matt: 6,22). Clinical Iridology, however, began with a Hungarian medical doctor called Dr. Ignatz von Pezcely in the latter nineteenth century.

How does Iridology work? The iris is an extension of the brain being endowed with many thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, as well as muscle and connective tissue. Every organ is connected to the iris via the nervous system, the nerve fibres receiving their impulses by way of optic nerve, optic thalami, and the spinal cord.

How Can Iridology Help You? Clinical Iridology is a complete form of health analysis revealing hereditary tendencies and acquired weaknesses as well as identifying the condition of each and every organ in the body. In this way, it is possible to deal with the cause of health problems rather than merely treating the symptoms.

The greatest feature and main advantage of Iridology over other forms of health screening is that changes appear in the iris before the physical symptom develops and therefore preventive action may be taken to improve health and avoid dis-eases which night otherwise follow.

Iridology does NOT reveal specific pathology (medically named diseases) because many diseases create similar changes in body tissues. The iris only reflects the condition of the tissues (e.g. Inflammation, acidity, toxicity, congested lymph, hardened arteries, etc.). Iridology is therefore not concerned with merely alleviating symptoms but with restoration and maintenance of health through building up the client’s immunity and Life Force.
