What is Iridology?

Iridology is a scientific study of the Iris — the coloured part of the eye and the integrity of the pupil. The Iris is set out like a map of the body. The eye is magnified and illuminated by light so an examination can take place. The procedure is non-invasive, safe, reliable and painless. The eye is made up of thousands of nerve endings which connect with the brain.

Iridology as a science was born in the 1600’s and the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Chinese understood the importance of the eye for the control of health. Hippocrates said “Behold the eyes, behold the body” But it was in the 1800’s a physician from Hungary and another from Sweden began observing eyes and organizing their findings.

Here at the Northern Ireland Wellness Centre by having an Iridology consultation you can begin to get an understanding of your past, present, and potential future health conditions by assessing the various body systems. Your inherited tendencies compounded by toxic accumulations in various parts of your body can also be revealed.

The science of Iridology is based on the analogy of one of the most complicated tissue structures of the whole body – the iris.
It is a method whereby the health practitioner may identify markings or signs in the iris which may be connected to reflex conditions of various organs and systems of the body. These markings represent a detailed picture of the integrity of the body; it’s constitutional potentials, areas of congestion or toxic accumulations and inherent challenges and gifts.




The four principles that form the cornerstones of Iridology are:

1. The condition of the nerves

2. The condition of the blood and lymph system

3. Adequate circulation

4. Nutrition – rest quality, breathing – state of mind

Through Iridology, we are constantly amazed to find that illness may be attributed to some form of blockage, whether it is emotional, elimination, muscular, circulatory, digestive, nutritional or lymphatic. If you begin to free this blockage and allow the energy to flow, natural balance may be created again.

Some Benefits of iridology

Iridology treats the person instead of the symptoms. When you understand your genetic strengths and weaknesses you can maintain balance and guard against illness. The body has its own healing wisdom when given the opportunity. Iridology offers a simple economical way to learn to care for your body.

Here at the Northern Ireland Wellness Centre the fundamental goal of iridology is prevention of serious degenerative processes by integrating nutritional changes, cleansing programmes, herbal treatments and emotional support.

An Appreciation of What the iris reveals
In order to fully appreciate what the iris reveals, let’s first consider this equation:

HEALTH = Physical Inheritance + Environment (Diet, lifestyle,) Age, Emotional factors and Spiritual Factors

We all inherit certain combinations of physical traits. We can observe some of these origins from our family tree, but how much this specifically affects you? Diet and lifestyle have a great impact on some people, but why are others able to get away with abusing their bodies? Which mental and emotional aspects significantly affect our physical health? And as we get older, we lose our resiliency at different rates. We owe it to our family to get this valuable information about our health which may help to alleviate many of the problems for future generations to come

Iridology takes a lot of the guesswork out of these questions. Going through life without this information is like taking a trip without a map. What are your chances of arriving at your desired destination? Will you get there efficiently, or end up taking many detours along the way? And how will you know where you are heading next?

Using the road map or blueprint contained in the iris, you can find out how well you are put together (and how much abuse your body can handle), where your body will tend to get sick, (including which organ systems are at greater risk), what specific underlying reasons contribute to your symptoms (which may vary from person to person with the same symptoms), and what emotional or behavioural factors are influencing these patterns. In short, it can show you where you came from, where you are headed, what kind of body you have for a vehicle, and what type of driver you are. With this knowledge, you can more effectively approach health challenges and also identify which preventive medicine practices would be most important for you to pursue.

Iridology offers a unique perspective to the concept and practice of preventive medicine. It is difficult to alert a person to the health problems that his or her particular body will experience, using orthodox methods of analysis and diagnosis. These methods rely upon the appearance of clinical symptoms. The iris may indicate a problem within the body at its earliest inception, long before disease symptoms are present. With this information, a health program can be developed which is tailored to the specific needs of the client, thus preventing the manifestation of disease.

Iridology Assessment
A story unfolds in the eye that depicts a detailed picture of the body at work, in health and dis-ease. The eyes are an extension of the brain. They are the input for the brain. Through changes in the pigments and structure of the iris, abnormal conditions of the tissue in the body are revealed.

Iridology is the most effective assessment technique in the world that considers the person as a whole. Humankind must be studied as a whole since the whole is more than the sum of its parts. The most efficient response in raising the health level comes from implementing both nutrition and iris analysis. In addition to nutrition therapy, various natural therapies can be incorporated into each individual’s plan of treatment.

Why Iridology Assessment? Management of your health is ultimately up to you. The wisest way to safeguard your health is to know and understand your body thoroughly. When you take care of your body, your reward is wellness. You feel and look younger. You experience more energy and enthusiasm. Iridology assessment provides you with information about your body signals and how you can respond to them. Certain conditions can be spotted before they cause serious problems, allowing you to “nip it in the bud.”

The greatest feature and main advantage of Constitutional Iridology over forms of health screening is that the iris reveals potentials and tendencies that may occur if a person lives their live a certain way. Therefore, symptoms can be treated decades before they ever appear. Preventative action may be taken to improve health and avoid those diseases that might otherwise follow.
