Iridology is the science that uses the iris of the eye to diagnose and monitor tissue changes that are occurring or have occurred within the body. There are over ninety different organs and tissues represented in the eye. The eye patterns are so specific for each individual they are believed to be more accurate and permanent than even fingerprints. Iridology can show inherent and constitutional weakness or strength of organs, glands and tissues; inflammation in tissue and its location and stage; the relative amount of toxicity in organs, glands and tissues; lymphatic system congestion; poor assimilation of nutrients; recuperative ability; stress; preclinical stages of many diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular, etc.. Herbal remedies and nutritional supplements are prescribed according to the findings.

What is an Iridology sesson like?
You will spend about an hour for a thorough session…each peculiarity in your eye is meaningful and will be mapped out on your own master chart. Once you have a better idea of what’s going on in your body and how the eye shows it, you can actually read your own progress for yourself. The eye is viewed under 8x magnification and matched up against the strengths and weaknesses of your health history.
Tissue Conditions vs Symptoms
Iridology shows every part of the body that has nerve sensitivity. What shows up is the effects of hormones, nutrition, toxins and chemicals in the tissues. Also, past trauma, weakness, presence of parasites, even a condition that invites parasites is accurately shown in the eye. An abnormal tissue state will produce different results in different people. One person may develop arthritis, another eczema and another ovarian cysts all from the same basic cause. A disease will always attack the weakest body system first. Iridology will not indicate symptoms; it indicates tissue conditions and can highlight weak areas for your attention long before any symptoms appear. It’s not until these symptoms are in full bloom that you could be diagnosed as having a particular disease.
Disease Development in the body
A disease is not normal. You do not catch diseases, but develop them over a fifteen to twenty year period. During this period, we are typically weakening our bodily defenses through poor nutrition, improper elimination, poor attitude and excessive inhalation of pollutants. Early on you may experience an occasional symptom, then monthly symptoms, then the condition becomes chronic as the symptoms become frequent enough to diagnose.
Herbs and iridology are a dynamic combination. Herbs are a completely natural, rich source of food which your body can use to build, repair and maintain itself. Herbs can clean clogged arteries, strengthen the heart muscle, add calcium to weak structural systems, supply HCI for proper digestion and clean the colon of toxins. Iridology is a completely natural, non-invasive technique that clearly reveals which herbs your body needs. Iridology Chart – as developed by Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C. This shows the areas in the iris that correspond to the various organs and systems of your body.
Sample of Eye Reading
Weak constitution, less active metabolism. Toxicity from systemic drug accumulation or due in part to conditions inherited from the parents. Suppressed catarrhal elimination. Heart disturbance (palpitations, weakness, problems with the heart rhythm and blood pressure). Weakness and chronic condition in bronchial area. Problems with Stomach secretion and absorption of nutrients (possible pain, heartburn, incomplete digestion,nausea, gas, drowsiness after meals). Toxic bowel which also has diverticulosis and both are spastic and ballooned (possible problems with elimination: constipation/diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome). Stress, tight, weak and painful muscles of the neck, shoulder and back, need for relaxation. Problems with left shoulder enervationPoor enervation and weakness of the left thigh. Left Kidney and Urinary Bladder weakness. Chronic disease of the reproductive organs. Chronic fatigue, weight problems, Hypoglycemia, depression, poor mental abilities (memory problems, mental blocks). Encapsulated area of toxic material in Pituitary gland.Dry skin and other skin problems.
