What it is: Iridology is a quick, accurate and painless system of health analysis through the examination of the colored part of the eye known as the iris. Proclaimed throughout the ages as "windows of the soul", the eyes can be considered as mirrors of the body as well.
The iris is an extension of the nervous system and is endowed with many thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, as well as muscle and connective tissue. Every organ is connected to the iris via the nervous system and the nerve fibers receiving their impulses through the optic nerve. The iris "records" information about the state and functioning of every organ in the body as well as the levels of inflammation and toxicity present. This reveals the underlying cause of the symptoms we may experience. One of the greatest advantages of iridology over other forms of health screening is that changes appear in the iris before the physical symptoms actually develop. Therefore, preventive action may be taken to improve health and avoid those diseases which might otherwise follow.
At Timeless Health Clinic this technique may be utilized as part of an overall health assessment that includes a full health history, physical examination and appropriate laboratory testing. Iridology does not reveal specific pathology (medical diseases) because
many diseases create similar changes in the body tissues; rather it
reflects hereditary tendencies and the condition of the tissues (i.e.
inflammation, acidity, toxicity, congested lymph, and hardening of the
arteries). Iridology is therefore not concerned with specific symptoms,
but with the restoration and maintenance of health by building up the
body's immunity and healing ability.
