I am asked constantly if Iridology may be used to create diagnoses of human disease. The answer in short - is that Iridology cannot diagnose disease, furthermore, iridology cannot give the name of any disease a person may have, or have had, or identify a specific pathology. Instead, Iridology is a tool that may be used to assess where inherent genetic strengths and deficiencies are potentially located within an individual's body. However Iridology does not provide any solutions, as such, but it does provide clues to a person's inherent genetic disposition.
It is believed that Iridology reveals the areas of genetic strengths and deficiencies within the body. Further, Iridology may show the presence and location of tendencies for tissue irritation and inflammation. These features of the eye make it the perfect window for observing a person's health potential.
Many different types of health practitioners may include iridology in their daily practice, including medical doctors, chiropractors, nurses, and herbalists. Each would then use their own particular realm of expertise to determine the course of action they would recommend in response to what they observe in their client's eyes. This usually includes suggestions for diet, vitamin, herbal and mineral supplementation, medicines, and exercise.
For example, if a potential genetic tendency for a deficiency in the heart area is found in a particular client, a medical doctor may suggest that the client avoid a diet high in fats and salt, and recommend proper exercise to keep his or her weight down. An herbalist might recommend herbs, such as hawthorn that have been traditionally used to strengthen the heart.
Another example might be a client with a potential tendency toward lymphatic congestion, suggested by Iridology. Medical practitioners, in cases like these, might make recommendations to the client to make significant changes to their diet. Suggestions, which might include, avoiding foods high in gluten, avoiding foods high in sugar, and avoiding dairy products, these kinds of suggestions may help the client avoid allergic reactions to the foods they are eating.
Iris analysis is a non-invasive, painless, and economical means of assessing a person's overall health, and is to be utilized in conjunction with other systems of analysis and treatment. Iridology complements all of the health sciences, as it provides information, not only about what may be ailing the client, but Iridology also provides information about the root cause of disorders particular clients may be facing.
