Iridology in an observation science of the irides, it determines strengths and weakness in the person’s constitution from analysing the eyes, assessing constitution, organ function, heredity factors and capability toward disease outcomes.
Iridology breaks down the iris into 3 main categories: constitution, disposition and diathesis. These categories have various types, which help the practitioner determine the person’s potentiality to disorders and their treatments.
Constitution is the dominant colour pigmentation of irides. The three main types are:
1) Lymphatic – blue/blue-grey eyes. These people generally come from cooler climates, Iridology has noticed that these people have concerns with their lymphatic systems and are prone to immunity issues.
2) Haematogenic – brown eyes. These people generally come from hotter climates and have blood, cholesterol, hormone and blood sugar, issues.
3) Mix biliary – brown, grey or hazel eyes. These people are a blend of lymphatic and haematogenic types, they are prone to sluggish digestion, reduced efficiency of liver, gall bladder and pancreas and have poor absorption.
Shapes, markings, hints of colours and holes are examined and all have diagnostic relevance. Charts are used to map out the organs and body systems, for example, the ring around the pupil, called the collarette, corresponds to the colon and signs over this area will give indications to that area.
