Naturopathy and The Wonders of Iridology

The eyes have it!

Since time immemorial the eyes have been viewed as windows to the soul – pools of infinitesimal beauty that speak emotion, expression, spirit and even wellness and infirmity.

Definition of Iridology

Within the realm of naturopathy, the specific branch of iridology focuses on examining and reading the iris and other components of the eye to ascertain a person’s health, level of wellness and presence of any ailments or illnesses. This mode of naturopathy even helps in the process of allergy testing using more alternative means.

This service is frequently available in many naturopathy clinics, including A Natural Self in Fremantle.

Contrary to the view held up by western medicine, iridology is in fact a specific science and involves the study of:

  • The structure and also the texture of the iris
  • The flecks and colours of the eye
  • The various reflex zones
  • Special indicators or iridology signs that appear on the iris and signal various physical and emotional states.

The ancient Chaldean race actually first recorded some of these phenomena in the eyes of sheep over 2000 years ago, and since then, the science has become more sophisticated and refined.[1]

Iriscope Technology

While the practice of iridology was restricted to more conventional means prior to the computer age, the advent of technology has meant that the science has been refined. The development of digital iriscopes and accompanying software that now reads the eyes more thoroughly and more exactly has heralded a new era for the practitioner, who can now use a state of the art clinical tool to study your eyes as never before.

Your Visit to the Iridologist

You may indeed choose to use iridology as part of your health and wellbeing self-care plan. If you do choose this, make sure to do the following:

  • Research your local iridologist and find out about their methods and their level of expertise
  • Be sure to let the iridologist know if you have had any recent eye irritations or infections
  • Be sure to let the practitioner know if you have had any recent illnesses
  • Speak with the practitioner about the iris, the corresponding organs in your body and any concerns you may have.

A good iridologist will study the iris thoroughly and will also speak with you about his or her visual findings. He/She will use the iridology session as a diagnostic tool that pre-empts and notifies you – the patient – about early stage irregularities that may be showing up in the eyes. In this way, the iris will alert the practitioner to the possible over activity or under activity that is occurring in various parts of your body.[2]

He or she can then advise and help you to make informed decisions about natural therapies strategies, other possible testing procedures you may choose to undertake and a holistic approach to the findings that is tailored to your individual wants and needs.
