What is Iridology?
During an iridology assessment, the practitioner will examine the fibres within your iris.
Iridologists use equipment such as a penlight and magnifying glass, SLR cameras or microscopes to examine the patient’s irises for tissue changes, as well as features such as specific pigment patterns and irregular stromal architecture. The markings and patterns are compared to an iris chart. The iris is divided into zones corresponding to parts of the body. The zone corresponding to the lungs, for example, is in the left part of the iris, around 9pm, in the right eye. There are minor variations between charts’ associations between body parts and areas of the iris.
A Brief History of Iridology
The recorded practice of iris analysis dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. But is is not until the 19th Century that the practice of Iridology as it is known today, was established.
The story goes that a Hungarian boy named Ignatz von Peczely (1826-1911) was playing with an owl in his garden. The owl became trapped in shrubbery and as von Peczely tried to free it, the owl suffered a broken leg. Whilst nursing the bird back to health, von Peczely noticed a dark marking appear in the owl’s iris. He continued to observe this unusual marking over the course of time. During this time he noticed how the dark marking began to lighten, eventually becoming pale and almost unnoticeable. Today, this type of marking is recognised as showing the process of healing in the area of the eye in which it originated.
Ignatz von Peczely went on to become a successful physician. During the course of his time as a practitioner he continued to observe the irides of many of his patients. He developed one of the first truly accurate iridology charts. Crude in design, it is still used as the model upon which all modern iris charts are based today. An iris chart shows the location of the various organs and body parts in the eye as within the chart above.
Iridology – The Map
Iridology involves the examination of the iris (The iris is the coloured part of the eye). Each iris is completely unique and for this reason it is helpful in identifying personal traits. It provides the genetic blueprint to the body and helpful hints to the patient’s history and inherited health.
Individuals can acquire inherited physical weaknesses that may have affected previous family members. These can be detected through Iridology. By examining the eye, the Iridologist is able to assess a person’s overall state of health and well-being. They are also able to tell which conditions a person may have the potential to develop if they neglect their health.
Iridology can act as an extremely useful early warning system. It can alert the Iridologist to the ‘potential’ a person may have for developing certain health conditions. By carrying the ‘potential’ it doesn’t necessarily mean that that person will develop those conditions. Iridology can be used preventatively in these circumstances. Information obtained can ensure that corrective measures be put in place before a person would necessarily develop such ‘potential’ health problems. Read more…
The eyes can tell a lot about a person – most specifically about their health. The alternative medicine practice of iridology focuses on the examination of patterns, colours, and other characteristics of the iris, determining information about a patient’s health and well-being.
Using an iridology chart, an iridologist can distinguish between healthy body system functions and those that are overactive, poorly functioning, restricted, inflamed or distressed. In turn an iridology assessment may determine a patient’s potential susceptibility towards certain illnesses, current or future health issues.
