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 major feature lies 1/3 the way out and forms the iris frill or autonomic nerve wreath. (See illustration.) It is often irregular in shape and meanders about.
This feature separates the organs of digestion and assimilation from the rest of the body. On the inside of the wreath is found the stomach, small and large intestines. The wreath itself represents the autonomic nervous system.
THE AUTONOMIC NERVE WREA TH IS A MAJOR LANDMARK.
Beyond the wreath, are found all other organs and tissues in a manner described on the chart.
You will notice from the illustration that there are seven zones, each with a specific content.
On most individuals, the areas for the lungs, kidneys, bowels and liver stand out as orientation features. From these, you can begin to establish the proximity of other areas that attract your attention.
