How is Iridology applied in a health consultation?

The practitioner who uses Iris Analysis will normally examine the iris by direct view with an illuminated magnifier, or acquire a photographic image of the iris on the client’s initial visit. The iris is inspected for textural and chromatic features, which are noted along with global properties. From both specific features and combinations of features, an evaluation of the client’s physical and psychological disposition. Any bias (imbalance) or predisposition which is evident from the iris pattern interpretation is noted and considered in determining the individuals health program.

Can children have an iridology assessment?

Yes, children can have an iridology assessment. The iridology assessment provides quick, safe, painless and non-threatening health analysis. This environment may ease anxieties some children may have about their health analysis.
Additionally, the iridology assessment can reveal inherited weaknesses the child may have. Knowing about them earlier on gives an opportunity to start working on them earlier in life.

How many iridology appointments would I need to have?

This is determined on an individual basis. It is pending iridology and nutritional findings, as well as your goals and commitment to your personalized program.

What does the recommendations program include?

The recommendations program is always rooted in holistic approach to health and well-being. This most often includes nutritional recommendations, homeopathics, herbs, vitamins, neutraceuticals, minerals and other supplements.

How long should I expect to be on the recommendations program?

As everything else in iridology, this too is very individual and highly custom tailored. Here, it is important to mention that most often than not, acquired weakness have most likely taken time to develop. The body will likely need time to turn the wheel back. Quick fixes may not produce satisfactory results. Persistence and perseverance prove to be the way to lasting results.

Can I benefit from an iridology assessment even if I am not sick?

Absolutely. As mentioned earlier, an iridology assessment gives information about inherited and acquired weaknesses. While acquired states may be suppressed by drugs and not necessarily cause any symptoms at the moment, the iridology assessment can reveal their presence, or absence, in the body.
On the other hand, if there are inherited weakness, they are there to stay. Not having any symptoms at this time does not negate their presence. A favorable pathogenic environment will cause progressive weakening of the already weak tissue. Sooner or later this will lead to symptoms. Proper care and preventative measures are crucial in the management of the inherited weaknesses. The iridology assessment could demystify the specific measures that need to be taken in the preventative health care approach.

If I have a medical diagnosis, would I still benefit from an iridology assessment?

Absolutely! An iridology assessment can unearth the reason behind your symptom/s.

How commonplace is the use and study of Iridology?

According to literature records, Iridology has been studied for at least 300 years, but was not structured in a systematic and detailed way until about 150 years ago. During the past century, the methodology has been used primarily by chiropractors, nutritionists, and herbalists. There are an estimated 10,000 practitioners of Iridology in North America. Although Iridology is given considerable scientific attention in Europe, it has not yet found widespread acceptance among the scientific and medical communities in North America.

What can an iridology assessment offer that other health diagnosing methods cannot?

An iridology assessment is fast, easy and painless. The instantaneous feedback it offers yields to an opportunity to start working on the body’s imbalances right away.
Also, as the iridology assessment bypasses symptomology and identifies the root of the problem, it gives an opportunity to have more effective health management plan.
In addition, probably the most unique aspect the iridology assessment offers, is that it can pinpoint certain inherited weakness even when no symptoms have yet been developed. This is of tremendous value and importance in the preventative approach to health and its maintenance.

Why might a medical practitioner want to refer a patient to an iridologist?

If the client has general systemic problems of an unresolved nature including symptoms ranging from simple diffuse feelings of malaise to systemic chronic disturbances, referral for evaluation by an iridologist is an efficient means of acquiring an objective genetic profile of the client’s constitutional characteristics, both physiological and behavioral. The iridologist combines this information with other clinical data such as presentation, main complaints, reported habits and lifestyle patterns, and symptomatic manifestations such as skin changes and posture to form a holistic profile of the client’s trajectory along their pathway through their life situations. From this picture, a health building plan is developed based on any of several alternative treatment modalities, including nutritional programs, homeopathic and aromatic application, lifestyle upgrade recommendations, affirmations, exercise, meditation, and similar processes that serve to clear the disturbance at several levels.
