Iridology is a specialization within Naturopathy and a method that is used most commonly in Europe. This approach helps practitioners identify bodily imbalances, deficiencies, as well as genetic tendencies and inherited predispositions. Similar to reflexology, the eye reflects much registered information that our body communicates through the brain. Since the eye can be compared to a blueprint of the body, it is a great tool in finding solutions to unwanted symptoms and can aid in staying on top of health challenges and early undesired symptoms.
Iridology is a preventative method that brings forth a clearer understanding of bodily information. Like the incredible detail of a fingerprint, no two irises are identical. What makes you stronger than the person sitting next to you? Why do you feel chronically tired when you slept all night?
The procedure is a non-invasive exam that requires photography of the iris, pupil and sclera. Images are then projected onto a monitor for analysis and explanation. Counsel and suggestions on nutrition and lifestyle then discussed throughout the consultation, as well as a program that will match the needs of the individual. Your iris can help the Naturopath gain perspective on root causes or why certain issues are arising and what what you might be doing to trigger them.
