"The Iris, Sclera and Pupil of the eye show the veil the soul has created, through consciousness (or forgetfulness), that reflects the illusion which prepares the soul for attaining the reality of full enlightenment."

                  ~David J. Pesek, Ph.D., September 1988

Eyes have long been referred to as the "Windows of the Soul." But few people are aware of just how true this observation is. Accurate analysis of iris structure and pigmentation provides information about you or your clients that is hard to find through other methods. This information is so valuable that Iridology deserves to become a widely practiced assessment tool in both the physical and psychological health fields. There are a multitude of factors that influence our health and personality, and many of these factors are reflected in the iris. Look closely at your eyes in a mirror, and then at the irises of those around you. You will see many different patterns of iris fibers and colors. Like fingerprints or faces, no two are exactly alike, and neither are we! The iris structure is so unique; it is now being used for security identification at ATM machines and airports. Microsoft's house of the future will use an eye scanner to identify residents and unlock the door.

 

What is it?

Iridology is based on the scientific study of the iris -- the colored part of the eye. Like markings on a map, the iris reveals physiological conditions, psychological health risks, challenges and/or strengths of various organs and personality traits.

 

Through iridology we can get an understanding of your past, present, and potential future health conditions by assessing the various body systems. Your inherited tendencies compounded by toxic accumulations in various parts of your body are also revealed.

 

The Science of Iridology is based on the analogy of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body - the iris.

 

It is a method whereby the doctor or health practitioner can tell, from markings or signs in the iris, the reflex condition of various organs and systems of the body. These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body; it's constitutional potentials, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherent challenges and gifts.

 

The four principles that form the cornerstones of iridology are:

  1. The condition of the nerves

  2. The condition of the blood and lymph system

  3. Adequate circulation

  4. Nutrition - rest quality, breathing - state of mind

 

Nature has provided us with an invaluable insight into the vital status of the health of the body by transmitting this information to the eye.

 

The laboratory testing procedures practiced today, which are not always necessary, are expensive, time-consuming and, often, uncomfortable to the patient. With iridology, we have a simple, painless, economical and non-invasive way of looking into the body. This is not to say that it should exclude other forms of analysis. On the contrary, it may be employed in conjunction with any other system of analysis or a diagnosis that a practitioner wishes to use. Now, more than any other time in history, we are in a need of accurate and less complex means of analyzing a patient's condition.

 

Iridology gives an essential insight to the development of these chronic diseases or the diminishing of that disease or inflammation.

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms below, iridology assessment is a highly effective tool to help you determine the cause(s):

  • Constipation

  • Migraine

  • Insomnia

  • Skin Eruption

  • Infections

  • Arthritis

  • Depression

  • Low Energy, Fatigue

  • Discharges

  • Asthma

  • Allergies

  • Colic, Diahorrea

  • Fevers, Cold, Flu

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Hay Fever, Sinus

  • Irritable bowel or gut disorders 

  • Stress

  • Food intolerance

  • Hormone or Thyroid imbalance 

 

The greatest feature and main advantage of Constitutional Iridology over forms of health screening is that the iris reveals potentials and tendencies that may occur if a person lives their life a certain way. Therefore, symptoms can be treated decades before they ever appear. Preventative action may be taken to improve health and avoid those diseases that might otherwise follow.
