Iridology is the art and science of analysing the colour and structure of the iris to determine tissue integrity throughout the body, thereby gaining valuable health information regarding strengths and weaknesses. Iridologists study the iris, particularly the colour, markings, changes and other aspects, as they are associated with tissue degeneration. Iridology is one form of analysis that is non-invasive to the body…requiring no cutting, x-raying or use of any other invasive technique to complete the analysis.
The science of Iridology is at least 3,000 years old and is used worldwide. The oldest discovered records to date have shown that a form of iris interpretation was used in ancient China as far back as 3,000 years ago…1,000 B.C.
St. Luke, in the Bible (Matthew 6:22-23) writes that Jesus Christ said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” Two men “rediscovered” the idea of iris analysis in the nineteenth century and are both held to be the modern day “fathers of iridology.” These were Dr Ignatz von Peczely of Germany, and Nils Liljequist, a Swedish clergyman. Throughout the years others have contributed greatly to the development of iridology.
What can you tell from Iridology?
By studying the iris of both eyes, a qualified iridologist can obtain information about all parts of the body simultaneously. The iris reveals our inherited health disposition, our tendency towards health problems, our current health conditions, and gives advance warning of what may occur in the future. This is powerful knowledge and can help us take care of our bodies so these tendencies do not become reality. Today, early detection of health imbalances and prompt correction is vitally important. Iridology is a tool of assessment for current conditions and for preventive healthcare.
