Iridology is a method which is used to reveal potential health conditions by the interpretation of the intricate fibres, patterns and colours that are displayed in the coloured part of the eye known as the iris.
The iris is a complex organ of the eye which has an interconnection between each organ of the body via the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the central nervous system (CNS) and the optic nerves.
When observing the iris, an iridologist will study the various patterns and the brightness and the fibres, to determine the overall health of the patient through markings which display weakness, genetic pre dispositions, strengths, injuries/scarring and individual dispositions which can all be found within the eyes.
This is established through a grid like system that has a format similar to that of a clock where the iris is divided into zones which represent specific areas of the body.
These various markings are then interpreted by the iridologist as numerous pieces of a puzzle which need to be placed together and studied before the big picture and wholistic view can be determined.
Just as a Naturopath takes a holistic view of the health of a patient...covering lifestyle, deameanor, diet, supplements, rehab and past and present illness, an iridology consult will be no different, especially because an iridology practitioner is often a Naturopath or someone who has studied anatomy at great lengths to enable them to have a clear understanding of the anatomy and physiology of their patient.
Once all of the findings have been sorted and translated for the individual, a plan can be created for the future to ensure that the owner is aware of any areas that may need strengthening, rehab or revisions to the diet and supplementation.
Sometimes there are no changes to be made, but rather an awareness and understanding as to why the patient may behave in a certain manner and other times, as well as the aspect of awareness, changes will be welcomed once the eyes have disclosed what we may not have understood in the past.
