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 trabécula. 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 active, inflamed, sometimes painful and using nutrients at a high rate, the iris records this condition by being very white in the corresponding reflex area. This sign is associated with catarrh and mucus eliminations, irritation of tissues, swellings, sensitivity. This is the active stage when the body is throwing off toxic accumulations and cleaning house.
Areas of lightness occur when the fibers rise up from the surface. They appear to be white in coloration. Actually they are transparent.
When nerve supply is exhausted, nutrients are extremely depleted, and circulation has slowed down due to fatigue, the acutely active tissue falls into a state of underactivity which in iridology is called a subacute condition.
This is seen as a darkening of what was once very white. We now have a situation where tissue integrity is lowered. Often times, the body is born with this level already present in certain organs, due to an inherent weakness coming from the parents' genetic makeup.
