Iridology is a safe, non-invasive diagnostic technique that studies the patterns, colours, and other characteristics of the iris to determine information about a patient’s systemic health.

10 Conditions That Iridology Can Detect
1. Hypertension. The presence of a ring around the iris can be indicative of high blood pressure evidenced by a slow metabolism. Hypertension can lead to a host of problems if not caught early and an experienced iridologist can help to identify it.
2. Hyperthyroidism. An overactive thyroid can frequently be deduced by eyes that appear to bulge slightly, something that an iridologist can detect and compare to a chart to identify related issues. This condition can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, weight loss and trouble sleeping.
3. Liver damage. A trained iridologist can identify liver damage from brown spots in the liver section of the iris. This can sometimes present symptomatically as emotional issues such as depression, and if caught at an early stage a treatment regimen can in many cases prevent progression and further damage to this vital organ.
4. Gallbladder issues. By examining the eye for signs of jaundice – a yellowing of the white of the eye – an iridologist can potentially detect gallbladder and bile duct issues which can ultimately affect liver function.
5. Inflammation. As the iris is broken down into different sections corresponding to particular body zones, iridologists can identify certain indicators of inflammation in those specific areas. Inflammation can be a precursor to many serious disorders, so it’s important that they are identified early.
6. Weakened immune system. When white markings are present in the iris, an iridologist may interpret this as a weakened immune system. Immune-boosting regimens can be recommended as a way of strengthening the system so that the patient is not susceptible to illness.
7. Digestive issues. Problems with the digestive system, particularly the stomach and intestines, can present themselves via discolorations around the pupil. The iridologist may be able to determine that there are underlying digestive causes to other seemingly unrelated health issues.
8. Allergic sensitivity. Environmental and food allergies and sensitivities can often present themselves to the iridologist as blood vessels appearing in the whites of the eyes. By measuring this against other indicators in the iris, a trained iridologist can frequently determine the nature of the allergy or sensitivity and recommend remedial actions.
9. Lymphatic health. Problems in the lymph system can usually be identified at certain junctures depending on their interaction with the lung and heart. As the system depends on lung function for the removal of toxins, this can, in turn, affect the respiratory system.
10. High cholesterol. A white ring circling the iris can be indicative of both high cholesterol and arteriosclerosis, which can be symptomatic of a poor diet.
