complementary therapies explained iridology
Iridology is the practice of looking at the fibre, colour, texture and pattern in the iris of the eye to determine whether a person is exhibiting any inflammation, stress or inherent weaknesses in the overall body constitution. It was discovered by two European doctors in the 1860s. Since that time, Iridology has been used widely in Europe and Asia as a single tool for determining a person's health, or in conjunction with other modalities.

Dr Bernard Jensen brought Iridology to the United States around 1935. As a Chiropractor and Herbalist, Dr Jensen has documented thousands of case histories and therapies using Iridology as part of his routine examination of a client. From his work we find that the eye truly is the window of the soul. The eye chart he developed is the one used world-wide today.

Some Iridologists take a photograph of the eye and compare it to the eye chart. Other iridologists use a penlight and magnifying glass to look into a patient's eyes while the person is seated comfortably in a chair. In either case, the eye analysis will show whether a person has a generally good constitution or a poor one. We know from research using electron microscopes, that each fibre in the iris is actually a nerve sheath containing over 20,000 nerve fibres. Each of the nerve fibres travels through the central nervous system to every organ, system and area of the human body. As such, each region of the iris represents an area of the body.

The patterns, structures, colours and degree of lightness and darkness in the iris will reveal the health of that particular area, including: irritation, injury or degeneration of the tissues and organs.

Iridologists use herbs known to feed a particular organ or system, as well as vitamins and minerals, to enhance the body's own healing mechanisms. Even people with hopeless conditions have found relief using the information discovered through an Iridology exam.

Iridology is a simple, painless and non-intrusive tool for assessing health and well-being. It can be an integral part of preventative healthcare.
