"Iridology is the science & practice that reveals inflamation where located, and in what state it is manifesting. The iris reveals body constitution, inherent weaknesses, levels of health and the transitions that take place in a person's body according to the way he lives." ~ Dr. J. Jenkins, H.M.D., I.D.
How Does it Work?
The Iris of the eye is delicately constructed of unique fibers and tissues which reflect abnormal conditions and changes in the body. Through interpretation of the formation of these fibers, tissue clarity, colour and markings, the Iris provides a window to the body. This connection is done by way of the brain and nervous system. Just as energy currents flow through meredians in our bodies, as found in Reflexology, currents travel along the nervous system to the brain which then leaves a "finger print" in the Iris of the eye, via the optic nerve.
The Iris (coloured part of the eye) is like a map of the body. No two Irises are exactly alike, and neither are our bodies! By understanding your individual characteristics, your present and future health care can be approached more efficiently.
To a trained practitioner, Iridology will reveal inherent strengths or weaknesses of organs, glands, and tissues. Health risks, and even personality traits may be seen in the eye. As well, presence of toxic settlements, sources of infections, and results of stress are recorded in the Iris'. Iridology is a very effective yet simple tool which can be taken advantage of by any one interested in better health.
