Iridology 

Iridology is the study of the iris to determine a persons state of health.  The iris contains nerve endings which are connected to the optic nerve, base of the brain and all bodily tissues.  The neural circuitry of the eye is able to express the continuity of the body, an integrated unit composed of various cells, which all communicate with each iris reveiling overall wellness.

 

The iris is connected to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the brain and nervous system. The nerve fibers receive nerve impulses by way of their connections to the optic nerve, optic thalami and spinal cord.  Both sympathetic and para-sympathic nervous systems are present in the iris. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nature has provided us with a map  showing the most remote portions of the body by way of nerve reflex responses.  The eye works two ways; not only does it enable us to bring images of the outside world within, it also shows images of what is within to the outside. 

Nerve fibers in the iris respond to changes in body tissues by manifesting a reflex physiology that corresponds to specific tissue changes and locations.

HISTORY OF iRIDOLOGY 

 

Modern iridology, the most efficient form of soft tissue analysis we know of, is attributed to Ignaz von Peczely, a Hungarian physician, who discovered the science in 1853 and was responsible for making the science known in Europe. He was also the first to begin mapping out the iris chart.

Peczely’s story goes as follows; some time during his childhood, he accidentally broke the leg of an owl, as he was playing with it. A dark stripe occurred in the 6 o’clock region of the owl’s corresponding iris, and Peczely had taken note of this. As he nursed the owl back to health, he discovered that the stripe eventually vanished leaving behind only a little mark. He later went on to study the works of others on the subject of iridology, and while working as a surgeon, Peczely was able to do comparative research by identifying correlating changes in people’s irides and meticulously took note of the changes that occurred before and after they had gone through surgery. The iris of the eye is the most complex tissue of the body meeting the outside world. It is an extension of the brain, being incredibly endowed with hundreds of thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, muscle and other tissues. 

Iridology has been practiced, refined and perfected by various enthusiasts as well as practitioners all over the world; a very notable individual being Bernard Jensen, D.C. Ph.D, who brought the scope of American iridology to a whole new level and contributed extensively to the improvement of the iris chart through his lifetime of work having treated over 350.000 people. His iridology chart is still widely used by practitioners worldwide.  With extensive history, and book material dating back to the late 1600s, iridology is truly remarkable.
