The practical scientific study of the Iris
Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., Ph. D, calls Iridology “the science of bringing light to dark places “. He goes on to say “the iris is a window showing what goes on inside the body”.
This is a science in the truest sense. Looking at the Iris of the eyes can show the iridologist where weaknesses exist in the tissues of the body. This is not mystical but, rather, a direct result of the communications by the nerves that continuously convey messages to the brain from every small part of the body. As nerves are stimulated, they send messages to the brain and the brain in turn tells the other parts of the body how to respond to these messages. As a result of these transmissions, the Iris responds by producing various colorings, separations of Iris fibers, and even the shape of the pupil. All of this is the result of a planned and organized creation. “I am fearfully and wonderfully made”, Psalm 139:14.
We must define iridology as the science of analyzing reflex conditions in the iris corresponding to pathology in the body. The iris of the eye shows the changes that are going on in the body and reveals abnormal tissue conditions. Iridology’s greatest value is that of allowing the detection of chemical and physiological changes in the body long before the appearance of the particular set of symptoms which would be classified and named as a disease. It is important, however, to understand that by studying the iris does not produce a diagnosis of any particular disease. Iridologists do not diagnose but, rather, identify tissue weaknesses in any part of the body that is being effected or stressed. When we identify certain weaknesses, we then ask questions about those signs we see to determine or verify if it is a past condition or something the client needs to concentrate on strengthening. For instance: a gall bladder may have been removed but still shows up as a weakness in the Iris.
The Iris is truly a map of the whole human body. Generations of iridologists, since the discovery of this science, have developed iris charts showing the location of various organs, limbs, glands and tissues in corresponding areas of the iris. By examining the iris, the trained iridologist can determine the structural response of the tissue, the nerve conditions and toxic settlements. Color shades in lesions or localized areas of the iris, whether white, light gray, gray or black, tell us the degree of tissue pathology from the acute or irritated stage through the sub acute, chronic or degenerative stages.
To be correctly understood and applied, Iridology requires rigorous study, training and practice. No two eyes are ever alike. Some eyes are more difficult to analyze than others. Only those who have used this science can begin to appreciate its insights into the complex workings of the human body and its simple yet profound approach to understanding the principles of health in a unique and holistic way.
I have been studying and practicing Iridology for 15 years and am confident we can help you to find the answers to your health issues.
