What to Expect in a Iridology Session …

An iridology appointment takes approximately one hour. It is painless. Using a flashlight and small lupe to magnify your eyes, I read your iris while you jot down notes about organs and tissues we discuss that could benefit from herbal supplements or dietary changes.

Iridology cannot detect a specific disease. Rather, it is a preventive practice that helps people to understand basic health issues so that they can seek treatment, if necessary, from the appropriate specialist. According to iridologists, if a health problem is detected at an early stage, something can then be done to prevent it from becoming a full-blown 'dis-ease.'


Iris up Close for ExaminationIridology coupled with hair analysis, reflexology treatments and herbs, is an extremely helpful way to create, develop and maintain habits that will help improve your overall natural health.

What is Iridology?

Iridology is the study of the colored part of the eye (called the iris) to determine potential health problems. Iridologists believe that changing patterns and markings in the iris can be used to reveal emerging conditions in every part of the body and to identify inherited weaknesses that may lead to physical and emotional disorders.

Iridology Analysis"The eyes believe themselves; the ears believe other people." - German proverb


The idea that the eyes are a mirror to the body is an ancient one

The Greek physician Hippocrates was known to examine patients' eyes for signs of illness. It wasn't until 1670, however, that the first actual medical reference to iridology as a diagnostic tool appeared in German physician Phillipus Meyens' book Chiromatica Medica.

Iridology is officially accredited to the observations of a boy named Ignatz Peczely in the mid-1800s. Ignatz noticed that when an owl he was playing with became injured, a mark suddenly appeared on the same side of the owl's eye. Many years later, Dr. Peczely graduated from medical school in Budapest and wrote Discovery in the Realm of Nature and the Art of Healing, a book that received much attention in European medical communities.

No-one will ever refute the importance of an eye ("an eye for an eye...")!

Iridologists use the iris like a television monitor to view tissue changes in remote body parts.
