Someone said that the iris is the living image of
what the eye has been, what it is, and even what it
can become. Jon Miles said, "The iris is like
a chalkboard which does not get erased."
the diagnostic method that examines the patterns and
changes in the iris of the eye that may suggest a health
issue or disease. Iridology, or iris analysis or iris
diagnoses, is a method of alternative medicine that
is used to analyze a person’s health status by
examining the colors, components of the iris, pupil
and sclera of the human eye. When people notice an
attractive person, the first thing they may notice
is the other person’s eyes, often referred to
the windows of the soul. When you look into someone’s
eye’s you can often tell how the person is feeling,
if they are lying, angry, ill or in love. When people
are tired or not feeling well, their eyes will lack
the usual sparkle or appear dull. Not only are the
eyes the windows of the soul, they are also the map
to our bodies.

the full story
Although some people believe their eye color never
changes through out their lives, there are noticeable
changes as we grow older or our health changes. These
changes can appear as marks or clouds in the iris,
the pupils, or sclera of your eyes. Iridologists can
assess an individual’s physical, mental, emotional
and spiritual health by iris analysis and be able to
guide them and show them what measures need to be taken
to improve their health.
|Researchers of Iridology look at lots of
eyes! Studies have been done around the world
(and are still continuing), and all of this has
culminated in the science of Iridology practiced
today. With the use of microscopes and digital
cameras developed over the past 20 years, research
has advanced rapidly.
Iridology (pronounced eye-ri-dol'-ogy)
is the science of studying the iris or the colored
portion of the eye. According to Mr. Miles, Iridology
is based on empirical observations (made by medical
doctors and other researchers over the last 300 years)
which suggest that certain dysfunctional states in
the body are indicated by different textures and color
properties within the iris. It is useful for preventative
health because these imbalances in the body can be
detected early on, giving time for adjustments to be
made using natural therapies.
|The basic premise of Iridology is holistic
in nature -- to consider the relationships within
the body and where imbalances are located. It
does not attempt to address a specific symptom
or disease. However, once uncovered, these imbalances
(and factors contributing to them) can be addressed,
often causing symptoms to diminish or disappear.
Iridology is an invaluable tool for designing
a plan for well-being.
Assessing health through studying the
eyes is thought to date back at least as far as ancient
Greece and Hippocrates. In the 19th century, this art
was revived by a Hungarian called Ignacz von Peczely.
As a boy, he was said to have observed how the iris
of an owl changed, first when it suffered a broken
leg and then as it got better. He went on to make observations
of the human iris, often being able to predict someone’s
impending illness. After qualifying as a doctor, he
drew up the first chart of the iris as a key to health.
Peczely and those who went on to develop his work in
the early years of the 20th century were ridiculed
by the medical establishment.
|The nerve fibers, or trabecula, respond specifically
to tissue and organ conditions with a corresponding
physiological reflex manifested in the iris as
lesions (pigment changes) and color variations.
The pigment changes on the surface occur because
of the capillary circulation bringing pigment
to these areas.
Inflammatory areas can manifest as white signs.
Dark markings are caused by loss of substance or
deterioration of tissue created by atrophy and
disruption of nerve and muscle fibers on the surface
of the iris, or depressions, and holes (lacuna)
in deeper tissue
||In the 1950's Dr. Bernard Jensen
published his own set of maps in the United States.
These are some of the most widely used maps for
Iridology. Until his death in 2001, Dr. Bernard
Jensen was one of America's foremost pioneering
nutritionists and Iridologists. Beginning his career
in 1929 as a chiropractor, he soon turned to the
art of nutrition in search of remedies for his
own health problems. He later observed firsthand
the cultural practices of people in over 55 countries.
In his career he examined and analyzed over 350,000
eyes. In 1955 he established the Hidden Valley
Health Ranch in Escondido, California, as a retreat
and learning center based upon the healing principles
Doctor Bernard Jensen drew up an extremely
detailed iris chart in 1950 relating all of the organs
and systems of the body to different parts of the iris.
Since then, other similar charts have grown out of
clinical experience in Europe and the UK. The area
around the pupil is said to signify the stomach, and
the area around that represents the intestines.
Dr. Bernard Jensen, put it this way: "Nerve fibers
in the iris respond to changes in body tissues by manifesting
a reflex physiology that corresponds to specific tissue
changes and locations." This means that a bodily
condition will translate to a noticeable change in
the appearance of the iris.
The Innermost Ring -The stomach
The Second Ring – The small & large intestines
The Third Ring – Relates to the blood & its
circulation; the lymph glands
The Fourth Ring – The body’s organs & hormone-producing
The Fifth Ring – To the musculo-skeletal system•The
Outermost Ring The skin & organs responsible for
elimination of toxins
|Today respected researchers in this field
Emanuel Felke (Germany) ... Dr Willy Hauser (Germany)
... Dr Henry Lindlahr (USA) ... Bernard Jensen
(USA) and John Andrews (UK)
The remainder of the iris is divided
up into a jigsaw relating to all the other body parts.
Modern iridologists say that the appearance of the
iris does not change but that its distinctive pattern
gives a unique map of a person’s genetic inheritance.
By studying this map, we can identify a our constitutional
weakness, for example a tendency towards stomach problems
or liver damage. However, they also say that some alterations
in the body can show up in slight changes of coloring
in the iris. For example, a patch that gets slightly
lighter can signify inflammation, and an area that
gets slightly darker can mean a build-up of toxins.
So the old story about the injured owl’s iris
may well have a basis in fact.

•Iridology analysis can help tune the treatment

strengths and weaknesses, thereby becoming more personally
aware of how to support their present and future health.
In Russia, a trial involving 800,000 patients found
Iridology to be 85% accurate in diagnosis and is taught
to medical students in some European universities.
•Iridology is especially useful in assessing
the state of the digestive system, being able to distinguish
between an under acidic or over acidic stomach and
clarify the state of bowel health and tension.

treatment without recourse to expensive laboratory
|The Iris displays, much like a television
screen, every single stimulus from the body the
brain receives. Since the nervous system connects
the iris directly with the brain, the ability
to not only view the quality of the connective
tissue, but also the functioning of the nervous
systems makes Iridology an extremely powerful
tool. It is for this reason that any change in
the body’s functions, or any disturbance
in homeostasis can be seen and interpreted.
The eyes – and the irises – are direct
offshoots from the brain. Hundreds of thousands of
nerve fibers make up the optic nerve and many of these
end in the iris. Some iridologists say it is for this
reason that the eyes – as a result of the information
they receive from the brain – are like VDUs,
giving an accurate representation of the state of the
rest of the body. Others compare it to reflexology,
in which the foot is said to be sensitive to what is
happening through all the ‘zones’ of the

What Your Eye Color
All eyes are categorized as either blue, brown or
a mixture of the two.
Lighter eyes are easier for an iridologist to ‘read’.
People with blue eyes are said to be more prone to
breathing difficulties, while those with brown are
more likely to have circulation problems. If your eyes
are greenish (a mixture of blue and light brown) then
you may be prone to digestive problems.

Iridology does often not reveal
disease and Iridologists do not diagnose. While the
iris can reveal some current conditions and stress
affecting body systems, it is most useful for prevention
and long-term health.
The iris is the "colored" part of the eye.
It surrounds the contractile center, or pupil. Light
enters through the pupil and is focused by the lens
into an image on the retina. The nerves of the iris
are connected to a part of the brain known as the hypothalamus.
It should be noted that there is no evidence that any
nerve in the iris is connected to any other part of
the body (organ, bone, etc.).
The left eye is believed to correspond with the left
side of the body and the right eye with the right side
of the body. In general, the higher organs (brain,
thyroid) are at the top of the iris and the lower organs
(kidneys) are at the bottom.
In reading the iris to gain insight to the body there
are several characteristics that are studied. These
include, but are not limited to layers, colors, rings
A primary theory of Iridology is that the iris is
constructed in layers that represent the four stages
of tissue activity.
By visualizing which layer has the defect, one can
then decide what the nature of the problem is.
There are 3 main physical eye types:
? Blue-Eyed Type (Lymphatic): At increased risk for
problems with the upper respiratory tract, digestive
tract, urogenital tract, lymphatic tissues, joints,
kidneys and adrenal gland imbalances.
? Mixed-Eye Type (Biliary): This type has discolorations
(usually light brown) on top of a blue background.
They are at increased risk for liver related problems,
digestive tract problems and allergies.
? Brown-Eyed Type (Hematogenic): This type is predisposed
to blood disorders and imbalances of minerals, especially
calcium. This type should pay attention to the circulatory
system, liver, spleen, bone marrow, digestive system
and endocrine glands.
Colors over certain areas on the iris correspond to
the area of the body as indicated by the maps. You
can then decide what types of changes are occurring.
White indicates an area of the body working hard to "maintain."
Yellow-white indicates an area of the body losing a
Yellow indicates poor kidney function; yellow sclera
(white part of the eye) suggest gallbladder disease.
Orange indicates problems metabolizing carbohydrates
and weakness in the liver and/or pancreas. Glucose
levels should be checked.
Red-brown indicates deterioration.
Brown indicates poor liver function and "dirty
Black indicates dying tissue.

There are numerous rings seen in the iris. Here are
a few of the main ones.
Scurf Rim or Ring of Purpose is a dark band around
the iris, indicating that the skin is not functioning
properly. These people do not sweat easily (lack of
detoxification), have increased mucous production and
kidney stress. They are "thick-skinned" emotionally.
Stress Rings or Rings of Freedom look like growth rings
on a tree. They indicate neuro-muscular tension and
stress. These people tend to be perfectionists and
are highly active and accomplishment-oriented.
Lipid Ring or Ring of Determination is a heavy white
ring partially or completely covering the outer edge
of the iris. This ring is mostly found in older people,
and it is indicative of arteriosclerosis and other
cardiovascular problems. It can also indicate problems
with the liver and thyroid, and an increased risk of
Parkinson's Disease. These people tend to be stubborn.
Lymphatic Rosary or Ring of Harmony looks like a tiny
ring of clouds around the outer iris. These people
have lymphatic congestion and swollen lymph nodes.
Perhaps the person with this ring is not getting enough
exercise for the particular body parts underlying the
ring. These people internalize others' problems to
make everything appear harmonious, as they dislike
conflict and tension in their environment.
Other ring types:
Radii Solaris-radiates out like spokes on a wheel.
Where they occur they poison and inhibit cells. This
was first noticed in sheep over 2000 years ago when
they had parasites and thus is often
linked with intestinal problems.
Sodium Ring-this is a cloudy white ring that often
occurs over the circulation area. It may indicate aches
Nerve Rings-The more of these rings a person has, the
more nervous the person is. They may need lifestyle
changes such as decreasing stress and finding another
person to open up to and share with.
Spots may "move" across the iris and are
believed to indicate deficiencies or a "blocking" of
awareness about a particular organ or system

Critique on Iridology
We would never recommend that a client rely
solely on iridology to predict disease or
diagnose an injury. Balance is always are prefered
HOW CAN IRIDOLOGY HELP
Iridology is potentially an integral part of preventive
health care. It has the ability to forewarn of approaching
difficulties or signs of "disease". Iridology
can be a powerful tool, allowing one to determine what
is transpiring inside the body from a simple, painless,
and economical external vantage point. In effect, iridology
will reveal how well your body functions. Improper
nutrition and lack of exercise undermines the body's
integrity until eventually it becomes unable to reverse
damaging toxic conditions through its own natural self-healing
mechanisms, becoming susceptible to ailments of a chronic
nature. Therefore, nutrition and iridology are inseparable
in one's pursuit of a healthy way of life and holistic
health care program. Iridology helps us understand
our weakness so we may strengthen and cleanse our bodies
to obtain our maximum health potential. It brings to
us an awareness of how to prevent illness, thus allowing
us to earn our most precious earthly treasure--vibrant
physical, mental and spiritual health!
Iridology can play an important role in preventative
medicine at the bioelectric level, which is well on
its way to becoming the medicine of the future.
The main aim of iridology is to keep you healthy by
recognizing early signs of possible problems and recommending
holistic and natural treatments to prevent them from
developing into more serious problems.
The greatest benefit of iridology over other forms
of health screening is that changes appear in the iris
before the physical symptoms develop. Hence a preventative
action can be taken early to improve your health and
can avoid those diseases which might appear.
Iridology can help to diagnose the disease and potential
ill health by studying the iris of your eye. It dose
not concerned with named diseases. It can help in restoration
and maintenance of health through building up your
immunity and life force.
You no longer have to spend Mega
Dollars to pay a therapyst now you can now
do it in your own home
In summary, while iridology has no scientific basis,
and studies have not been able to prove its inherent
value, empirically it has demonstrated a host of
benefits. Not only is it a quick, painless and relatively
cheap way to obtain information about the body, a
skilled practitioner would be able to do this with
merely a simple, Iris Scope. And though it is not
a diagnostic tool, at the very least, iridology is
helpful in giving the user a starting point from
where to detect a problem. Moreover, since the main
goal of iridology is not treatment but rather prevention,
there is also no inherent harm in the use of iridology.
Iridologists are aware that this practice should
not be used alone, but in conjunction with other
medical sciences and wholistic arts. As I have said,
to date there is not sufficient evidence to disprove
iridology, and till that day comes; iridology remains
an invaluable tool for obtaining information on a
person’s overall health potential.
