The Eyes – the Windows to the Soul

The science of Iridology is based on the analysis of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body – the iris. It is a method whereby a trained professional can tell from the markings or signs in the iris, the reflex condition of various organs and systems of the body.

These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body, its constitutional strength, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherited strengths and weaknesses.

Ancient texts revere the eyes as the link between the physical and spiritual universe. Each eye gives us different information. The left eye correlates with the left side of the body and the feminine aspect while the right eye correlates with the right side of the body and the masculine aspect.

The iris of the eyes is directly connected to the brain, the sympathetic nervous system and spinal cord. The optic tract extends to the thalamus area of the brain and creates a close association with the hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands. These areas of the brain play a vital role in healing and in maintaining health.

Nature has provided us with an invaluable insight into the vital status of the body by transmitting this information to the eyes. With Iridology we have a simple, painless, economical and non-invasive way of assessing internal conditions and levels of health. This is not to say that we should exclude other forms of analysis.
