The iris is the most complex external structure of the human anatomy. It has a reflex connection to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the nervous system. Through the optic nerves, which are attached to the eyes, visual information is sent to the brain. At the same time there is information sent back to the eyes from the brain about the state of the organs and tissues in your body. It has been said: “the eye is the window of the soul”.

There are thousands of nerve endings transmitting their information to your cells, organs and tissues throughout the body to the irises. The eye is an extension of the brain via the optic nerve.  I take note of the shape, fibres, pigmentation and other marks and signs in the irises to determine your individual constitution and specific areas that may require attention and nurture depending on your presenting symptoms and predispositions.
No two irises exactly alike - each iris is as individual as a fingerprint.  This fact has seen security companies utilising equipment developed for personal identification through the eye. This security method is called “biotechnology”. The colour and pattern of iris fibres is an expression of the physical and emotional issues of the three generations behind you which may or not be activated according to the way you eat, drink, think, live and love. Iridology can show us how to live our best lives with what have got.
Iridology is one of the traditional "tools" that we use in Naturopathy, along with tongue, nail, hair, skin, and I also use hair tissue mineral analysis.  In a first in-person consultation, I take take iris pictures with my Iridology Iriscope Camera and a Constitutional Iridology Report is included in your write up.
Iridology is the non invasive study of the colour and structure of the iris of the eye (irides = plural) as they relate to the organs, glands and tissues of the body.  It is used as an assessment tool in Naturopathy to help understand one's genetic resilience and constitution.

Iridology can be used to determine potential health problems at the earliest stage.  This enables you to prevent illness and maintain optimum wellness.  Iridology is not new, it goes back as far as ancient Babylon and has been used in many cultures for assessing potential health strengths and weaknesses for centuries.
In iridology, the iris is mapped into segments, like reflexology, with the brain and head areas at the top of the iris, and the lower parts of the body at the bottom.  Many different iridology maps / charts have been developed and updated over the years as iris camera technology has become more advanced allowing continued deeper understanding of the eyes.

Iridology may indicate genetic tendencies or potential for: -
  • Nutrient malabsorption in the body,  areas of toxicity
  • Distinction between acute, chronic and normal tissues
  • Through colour and genetic patterns, foods a person may have difficulty digesting
  • Nervous system imbalances / how resilient a person may be to stress
  • Inherited weaknesses e.g. connective tissue, organs, endocrine glands, brain areas e.g. hypothalamus, adrenals
  • Constitutional strength
  • Presence or not of degeneration
  • Presence of emotional conditions
  • Tissue acidity, cholesterol, lymphatic congestion
  • Various syndromes or pathologies such as gastrointestinal disorders, hypoglycaemia, blood anomalies
  • It cannot give a diagnosis of disease, specific pathology, pregnancy

This is the Iriscope that I use to take your iris pictures

We all have genetic predispositions and just because you may be genetically predisposed to a condition, does not mean you will develop a genetic trait.  What you eat, drink, think, how you live, who you love and interact with where you live determines whether your genes are expressed or not (turned on or off).  How we choose to live our lives plays a huge part in whether our genetic tendencies are expressed is the science of Epigenetics.  Knowing our genetic predispositions or tendencies, means we can pay particular attention to nurturing those areas.

Iridology does not diagnose, or show specific conditions or diseases, only genetic predispositions and tendencies which may need nurturing for optimum long term health

There are three main colours of eye, which are the Primary Constitutions;
Brown (Haematogenic), Blue (Lymphatic), Mixed (Biliary)
We then look at Structural Sub-types, the Accumulation Type, and other markings.  We also look at the pupil shapes, and if visible from the pictures, the red lines in the whites of the eye (Sclerology), which gives more current information.

I am a Certified Advanced Physical Iridologist.  Iridology is the study of health via an examination of the iris, (coloured section of the eye) the sclera (white of the eye) and the structural aspects of the eye including the pupil (the black centre) the pupil border and collarette. Iridologists assess variations of colour and fibre structure to determine the constitutional strength of the physical body, as well as aspects of the personality, which can influence conscious and unconscious emotional patterns.
