How Iridology Works

Over 300,000 nerves make their way from various parts of the body to the optic nerve, allowing systemic activity to be projected in the eye. Using markings and signs inside the iris to reflect a picture of what is happening in the body, doctors or iridologists are able to determine the body’s strengths and weaknesses, detect areas of toxic accumulation or congestion, and more.

With the left eye corresponding to the left side of the body and the right eye to the right side of the body, iridologists ‘read the eye’ to ascertain a patient’s general state of health and/or propensity for disease. To gain insight into the body, four characteristics of the iris are studid:

  • Layers
  • Colors
  • Rings
  • Spots

Benefits of Iridology

In reading the iris, iridologists are able to recognize:

  • Overall state of health
  • Inherent strengths and weakness
  • Presence of toxins
  • Stages of inflammation
  • Areas of blockages
  • Biochemical deficiencies
  • Systemic activity levels

Whether you are seeking a greater understanding of your body, a picture of your overall health, detection and prevention of a medical condition, insight into your genetic vulnerabilities and reactive patterns, or a way to best care for your body, iridology may be the answer you are looking for (literally!).
