Iris diagnosis (iridology)
Iridology goes as far back as Hippokrates who found that the eye, specifically the iris, can give information about diseases and the body's weaknesses. Iris diagnostic is mainly developed in Europe and is an important indicatory form of diagnosis within natural healing practises.
Experienced iridologists can learn to recognize a patient's constitution, dispositions and past as well as acute processes. These observations then inform the choice of therapy.
The recipe is in the eye
The eye has a perforated structure indicating poor functioning of the glands. The co-operation between the glands has been disturbed. The blue colour indicates that diseases are mainly afflicting the organs of the lymphatic system. The light ring closest to the pupil indicates a souring of the stomach. The clearly open lacuna opening towards the edge of the iris (oval “hole” at 2 o'clock) is an indicator of ailments with the ears, for example pain or tinnitus. The pupil is slanted towards the nose, which indicates changes in the thoracic vertebrae or emotional ailments in the heart or lung area.
Even if the patient does not at present have problems it is possible to treat the patient preventively with this diagnosis. In this example one would harmonise and reinforce the glands, cleanse the lymphatic system, counter the souring of the stomach, investigate the ears and on the psychological level discuss themes around the heart- and lung area in conversation.
