Iridology

IRIDOLOGY is a type of Naturopathic testing that is non-invasive and examines the iris (coloured section of the eye), the sclera (white of the eye) and pupil to obtain information about an individual’s health. Iridology maintains that the iris can indicate organ function; whether it is under active, overactive, inflamed or stressed. The iris is a richly innervated, extremely complex part of human anatomy. The optic nerves are attached to the eyes and they receive visual information that is sent to the brain. Simultaneously there is information sent back to the iris from the brain regarding the state of the organs and tissues of the body. So the iris has a close association to all organs in the body via the nervous system. For a detailed iridology examination a digital photograph of the iris can be taken, transferred onto a computer screen and enlarged.

Iridology is the study of the iris, or the coloured part of the eye.  By looking at the iris, the practitioner is able to see the changing conditions in every part and every organ of the body.  While iridology cannot detect a specific disease, it is able to tell if there is not enough or too much energy in a specific area of the body.  It is a testing tool rather than a treatment tool.  The aim of the Iridology is to check a potential illness as soon as possible, before it has a chance to develop into something more serious.
