As a complentary tool, iridology can lend insite into the health and functioning of many of your body systems. This is done by observing apects of the iris, correlating to parts of the body.
What does Iridology do?
The iris is the greenish-yellow area surrounding the transparent pupil (showing as black). The white outer area is the sclera, the central transparent part of which is the cornea.
Some of the things that an iridologist can determine from your irises include:
- Toxins accumulating in tissues
- Under-functioning or over-working organs or tissues
- Inflammation in the body
- Stress levels and how you’re handling them
- Genetic weaknesses and predispositions – by knowing these in advance, you can take appropriate action to avoid illnesses
- Past injuries and how well they’ve healed
- Digestive and eliminative systems and how well they’re functioning
- Muscle cramps and their locations
- Lymphatic system performance
- Spinal health
- Blood circulation to different areas of the body
What does Iridology NOT do?
Note that there are also some things that cannot be determined from the iris:
- Cancerous tumours
- Sex of individual (this is only relevant when viewing an iris photo. Otherwise it’s usually obvious from looking at a person what sex they are!)
- Disease diagnosis
The last point is very important. Iridology is a tool to gather information about the tissue state of the body. It does not provide a diagnosis.
