What is Iridology?

Iridology also known as Irisdiagnosis is a natural non-invasive diagnostic method that used the Iris (colour part of the eye), Sclere (white of the eye) and Pupil (dark middle of the eye) to help a trained Iridologist to accurately assess the health status of a person’s body.

Have you ever noticed that there often appear clouds or marks in the iris of your eyes and these often change depending on your state of health or age? Have you noticed that your left eye is different than your right eye? If you have then you have skimmed the top of Iridology.

Every colour change, change in fibre density, shape, orientation, they all represent a specific health status of the corresponding organ or organ system that these changes are noted within. The eyes mirror the state of health of our entire body. The eye is actually a map.

How does Iridology work?

Iridology is another one of the micro-systems of the body. The delicate nerve tissue and highly innervated eyes are quick to mirror your internal health status.

The iris reflects your genetic weaknesses and strengths. An Iridology assessment provides the trained Iridologist with information about the root cause of ailments, strengths and weaknesses of all organ systems and tissues within the body, as well as inherited genetic disease patterns.

A great advantage of Iridology is that it provides information about the status of vital processes in the body. By vital processes we mean both disease causing (e.g. poor waste clearance) and health maintaining processes (e.g. blood circulation). It allows the practitioner to detect signs of biochemical and physiological function and dysfunction in the body before symptoms of disease appear, therefore it is great as a health maintenance method. Prevention is better than cure!

What to expect during an Iirdology examination

The examination will take roughly 30 minutes during which a clinical history, pertinent examination and pictures of your eyes will be captured. The bulk of the assessment will be done after hours by Dr Ross and he will put the pieces of the puzzle together and email your results back to you.

The report will include your genetic constitution profile and all the foods and additional health advice necessary that pertains to your unique constitution. Furthermore additional nutritional, supplementation and health advice will be given on how to strengthen and heal the organs and organ systems that were seen to be in need of help.
