Your Health Diagnosed From Your Eyes
Iridology is a branch of alternative therapy and there is a very simple answer to the question as to what you can treat. The answer is nothing because it is not a treatment as such.
Iridology is used for assessment only. It focuses on the eyes as a way of determining a patient’s health.
An Iridologist can study your eyes and learns what may be ailing you or if there is a problem with your health. They can see if you have a problem with your liver or kidneys for example.
It is a common misconception that Iridology is actually a practice used for diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
Probably one of the biggest reasons that Iridology is often misunderstood, is because most of the other forms of alternative medicine and therapies are actually treatments.
Acupuncture, herbal therapy, and homeopathy are a few of these treatment options.
Iridology is simply the study of the patient’s eyes to estimate current illnesses and to attempt to foresee any future illnesses. Once a patient has seen an Iridologist, he or she should seek more conclusive diagnosis from another holistic or traditional medical professional.
Therefore, the Iridologist can ‘see’ and then an appropriate treatment suggested by your chosen health care professional can recommend treatment.
Should I Be Skeptical of Iridology Assessments?
This, of course, raises another question, “what is the iridologist looking at if a person’s eye never changes?” It is believed that the human iris cannot change during the course of a person’s life. The iris forms when the person is still in the uterus, and though there can be some color changes within the iris during the first year of a person’s life, this is generally the only natural change that occurs. Some glaucoma patients get iris variations after treatment, but there are no other changes to the iris, despite illness.
Iridologists and proponents of iridology generally feel that the problems a person has, particularly illnesses, can be determined by whatever variations are visible in the iris. They do not necessarily look for changes in the iris. However, it can also be argued that if the iridologist is not looking for changes, he is not able to diagnose any illnesses at all. As with all alternative medicines and therapies, people have their opinions.
I personally have visited an Iridologist and it has helped me many times. I always find it amazing at what they can see. If you would like to leave your comments I am sure others will like to hear them too.
