What Can You Expect From Iridology

Because of seeming simplicity and easy access, iridology has been the study of many minds, from the devoted truth seeker to the casually curious. There have always been those who have abused a good thing by taking advantage of it for personal gain, and iridology has been no exception to this aspect of human behavior. There are those who have fathomed the great truths in iridology and endeavor to upgrade and make respectable the practice, and much progress has been made. Likewise, there are...

Iridology And Nutrition

Vitamins Strengths Weakness Chart

Every cell, tissue and organ of the body has its nutritional requirements. They require specific nutrients in correct combinations to work at their best. When the body is not fed properly, certain elements become depleted and the body beginstosuffer illness and disease. The iris reflects these needs and the skilled iridologist can see them. All tissues change according to the nutritional program applied and the living habits a person practices. Improper living habits undermine the body until it...

Pupil Configurations

By observing the shape of the pupil and its size, it is possible to learn a great deal about where major stresses are occurring in the body. The pupil is not located in the center of the iris. It is placed nasalward and slightly down from the geometric center. If it is small and pinched down, a condition of extreme nervous tension is indicated. Often times the use of certain drugs will give this effect. When the pupil is wide and open beyond normal, a condition of nerve depletion and exhaustion...

Iridology Does

Often we see situations and conditions developing long before there are symptoms to which disease names are attached. Instead, we see tissue strengths and weaknesses with which we work to bring about a higher quality of health. 2. It does not reveal operations performed under anesthesia.

The Nerves

Iridology Ring

People are a source of stress and tension. Life holds many fears and dreads resistance, dissention and unhappiness often prevail. Peace, joy, harmony and contentment are lacking, for the most part, in people of today. The eye shows the unnaturalness of this stress on the body and how it is affecting us. Every organ and cell in the body relates to each other through the nervous system. The nervous system is a very important part of health care. The chart of the spinal nerves illustrates the...

Making An Analysis

Stages Tissue Healing Images

In the subacute condition, tissue vitality is lower than it should be. Available nutrients are not being absorbed properly, and the tissue cannot retain them. Iridology and nutrition are symbiotically associated. All dis-ease conditions have a nutritional aspect to them. When the iridologist sees weak tissue, he is also witnessing nutritional imbalance in that tissue. This is where iridology has one of its greatest uses showing up weak tissue and revealing where and what kind of nutrition is...

ALL CURE STARTS FROM WITHIN OUT AND FROM THE HEAD DOWN AND IN REVERSE ORDER AS THE SYMPTOMS FIRST APPEARED. 'This is the process the body goes through when the blood is cleaned and chemically restored through nutrition, improved circulation, rest and proper nerve force. Iridology will show us what needs to be cleaned. It shows us the nerve energy to every organ in the body. By proper exercise, diet and rest, a healing crisis will come in a matter of weeks. The...

Few Case Histories

The following pictures demonstrate clearly the way in which a weakness in the iris correlates with an observable physical weakness. Notice the major lesion in the right iris at 6 o'clock. This is in the leg foot area. Observe the right leg and the severe varicose veins. Now compare the left iris and left leg. They are both free of weaknesses of this kind. We knew this patient had a kidney problem when he came to the Ranch. He had been tested at a hospital and found to have glomerulonephritis....

What Is The Chart

Irritations

Transverse Fiber Iridology

We live in a world today that has many irritating qualities about it. These irritations are reflected in the iris by white, acute, very active, inflamed fibers. They are areas of heavy whiteness usually radiating along thetrabecular length. From thin wispy lines to heavy masses, they show nerve energy being consumed at high rates. THICK WHITE LINES AND MASSES RADIATING FROM THE PUPIL INDICATE EXTREME NERVE IRRITATION. USUALLY ACCOMPANIED BY PAIN, SENSITIVITY AND DISCHARGE. THICK WHITE LINES AND...

Constitution

Large Iridology Chart

The very first impression received when observing the iris is its overall appearance in the sense of how light or how dark it is, how many holes there are or the lack thereof , lesions, colors and textures. This overall impression gives a feeling for the constitutional character of the iris. To illustrate, let's make a comparison to the varying degrees of texture found in textiles i.e., that of fine silk, cotton weave, coarse burlap or cheesecloth. The closeness of the fibers and their...

Nutritional research has proven that the body needs sustenance in correct quality, quantity and combination. By knowing in advance one's weak tissues and organs, as can be revealed by iridology, it is possible to supply needed nutrients and thereby prevent unnecessary illness and disease from occurring. When rebuilding a broken-down body, it is importantto know what the correct building...

Iris Color And Variations

Iridology Black Spots Blue Eye

There are only two eye colors in the world today blue and brown. The structure of the stroma is different in the two. The blue eye is less dense, has its trab cula in the open and reveals itself more clearly. Blue eyes are much easier to study. The brown eye is dense, not revealing the trab cula and is more difficult to analyze. There are variations between the true blue and true brown eyes. Sometimes people born of blue- and brown-eyed parents have a mixture of both. Genetically, blue eyes are...

How It Began

Iridology Eye Chart

In the early 1800s, a young lad named Ignatz von Peczely of Egervar near Budapest, Hungary, caught an owl in his garden. The 11-year-old boy struggled with the frightened bird and met with its fierce claws as the bird instinctively tried to defend itself. In the struggle, the boy accidentally broke the owl's leg. As the youth and the owl glared into one another's eye, the boy observed a black stripe rising in the owl's eye. Von and nursed it back to health and released the bird but the bird...

The Digestive System Stomach Intestines

Iridology Diverticula

The digestive system is the hub of the body. Nutrients that sustain body tissues are obtained from it. Notice that the stomach is located in the middle of the iris immediately surrounding the pupil, in zone 1. Coming out toward the nerve wreath, you will see a round halo or circle that is light in coloration. This indicates an acidic condition in the stomach. There is an imbalance in the hydrochloric acid and digestive enzyme level. Protein digestion is being impaired. SMALL, TIGHT PUPIL...

Lesions Lacunae And Crypts

Crypt Iris

These are the iris signs that lower constitutional quality and represent acquired or inherited weaknesses in the body. They are recognized by their shapes. They vary in size and in degrees of darkness. An open lesion is one that has one end opened up, while the other end is usually closed. Being open indicates to the lesion, lacunae, crypt iridologist that this tissue is active in that nutrients, circulation and metabolic functions are flowing through the tissue, although at a reduced rate. THE...

Physiology Of Iris Signs

The accompanying diagram illustrates a cross section of the iris tissues. It is a representation of how iris signs are formed within and upon these tissues. The fibers running radially from the pupil are known as trab cula. They form the body of the uppermost layers. These fibers rise and fall according to their reflex signals. Areas of light and degrees of darkness result. Iridology measures reflex tissue conditions in four stages acute, subacute, chronic and degenerative. When body tissue is...

Arcus Senilis

The mark of old age is usually found in the uppermost portion ol the iris, inzone7, inthe brain area and on the periphery. It has the appearance of being a portion of a sodium ring. Anatomically, it is a portion of the sclera coming over the edge of the cornea. This sign is an indication of cerebral anemia. It appears as an arc, white and often fuzzy at the edges. It makes the iris look almond shaped or oval. When blood oxygenation and circulation are poor, the brain tissues are not getting...

Basic Iris Topography

Autonomic Nerve Wreath

It's helpful for a newcomer to iridology to be able to recognize the major iris features. Iridology involves study of a very intricate tissue structure. There are over 90 known specific areas mapped on each iris, and they are both different. The right iris responds to the right side of the body and the left responds to the left side. Therefore, there are over 180 divisions to gather information from within the two irides, each smaller than a dime. Starting from the pupil outward, the first...

Sodium Ring

Iridology Sodium Ring

A solidwhiteringcirclingthe iris at the periphery in zone 7 is called a sodium ring. It is a deposit which has formed in the tissues of the cornea, producing an opaqueness at the corneal-scleral border. It varies in its width according to the severity of the condition. This sign is an indication of a chemical imbalance in the body. In times past, this sign was associated with the heavy use of chemical salt in foods and the environment salt miners, mariners, etc. Today, it is also recognized as...

Lymphatic Rosary

Iris Chart Scurfrim

The lymphatic system is found in zone 6. When the lymphatic circulation becomes slow and overburdened with waste materials, a congestion results. This condition is seen in the iris as small, cloud-like spots. Sometimes these clouds are seen in varying distances into the interior, but generally are found near the periphery. They resemble a string of pearls or rosary and get their name from this appearance. The whiteness of these spots indicates that there is an acute activity or inflammation....

Radii Solaris

These are elongated and darkened lines that branch out like spokes on a wheel. Their origins are often at the autonomic nerve wreath. This is a sign of a toxic, slow-moving bowel. They are usually heaviest in the transverse colon area and radiate into the upper regions of the iris, the brain area. Think of these spokes as being funnels or troughs through which toxic material is being channeled to the organ and tissue in which the spoke terminates. These are channels of toxic absorption showing...

Nerve Rings

Blue Iris Covered With Detox

Nerve rings, or neurovascular cramp rings, are indications of excessive nerve tension. They form by a buckling of the iris fibers. Concentric circles and portions of arcs are formed when the fibers are pinched or cramped. They vary in intensity from acute white through the dark, chronic condition. Nerve rings indicate that the individual is under nervous stress which is finding its way into the muscular system causing anxiety and a storage of tension there. When found in the stomach, there is...

Scurf Rim Iridology

At the periphery of the iris, in zone 7, is found the area for the integument skin, hair and nails. When a darkened area is observed here, it is called a scurf rim. It may be only in a portion of the periphery or it may encircle it entirely. It may be a thin, wispy area or it can penetrate deep into the interior. When this area shows up dark, it represents an underactive, slowly eliminating skin. Toxic elements and metabolic waste materials are accumulating here. The skin is a two-way membrane...
