What is iridology

Iridology , born at the end of the 19th century thanks to the Hungarian Ignatz von Peczely and developed in the 20th century primarily by Bernard Jensen , is a holistic discipline based on the assumption that the iris , the colored part of the eye, represents a map that reproduces the entire human body , its anatomy, its state of health and, above all, its functions; its origins are very ancient: Chinese, Egyptians, Chaldeans, Essenes, Jews and Greeks, in fact obtained diagnostic information from the observation of the eyes.

Iridological analysis is undoubtedly one of the investigation techniques most used by naturopaths today.
Iridology guides the expert who knows how to practice it to discover the degree and health conditions of the whole subject, starting from the physical but also psycho-emotional picture, through the reading of the iris of the eye. The eye is therefore considered a very important means to observe from the outside what happens inside the human body.

The iris signs , according to this perspective, are able to indicate both the predispositions to develop certain pathologies to which the subject can tend, and to see the consequence of traumas suffered or also had in the past. Another strong point is to be able to identify the causes connected to the imbalances and energetic-functional problems that the subject presents. Iridology is therefore a useful means of investigation to work in prevention before the “disease” sets in.

The person who studies the iris is called an iridologist or iridol naturopath and is able to make an assessment regarding certain problems and to recommend natural remedies and dictates for a lifestyle that brings him back into balance and therefore healthy.

Through iridology, no diagnosis is made, since it is not a diagnostic technique, which is instead typical of the physician, but observations are made on health, considering the current processes in progress, be they organic and emotional, the inflammatory and congestive states that may exist but also the state of organic intoxication and to which organ or system is found. It then investigates the alterations of the humors (blood and lymph) as well as the imbalances of the nervous system .


How does it work?

Observing the iris map, the various modifications and alterations of the fibers of the iris, whether chromatic or not, but also evaluating the age of the subject, the somatic features of his face, his hands and his nails. can have a clear and complete picture of the health condition of the organism.

The iridological investigation , that is the study of the signs of the iris and the iris setori in which they are located, allows to outline a complete picture of the subject examined starting from its energetic quid , that is, from the index of vitality, mood, immune defenses, personality, overloads and deficiencies, ability to eliminate metabolic residues and toxins, the level of stress, the predisposition to aging, the weaknesses of organs and systems, the degree of mineralization, the recovery potential of the organism and the overall level of health and more.

For example, through iridology, the main psychoemotional traits can be highlighted, so much so that there is even a distinct branch represented by psychosomatic iridology. It is important to take into account that the results of the iris reading must always be interpreted with common sense, comparing them and integrating them with what emerged during the interview.

The iridological investigation is neither invasive nor painful and is carried out using a special non-electromedical instrument, the iridoscope , which, equipped with special optics, allows the iris to be examined down to its most microscopic details. There are no two people in the world who have the same irises, on the contrary, irises are different even in the same individual: colors, pigmentations, streaks, reliefs, cracks, rings and other signs characterize them and make them unique.


What are the iridological constitutions?


What does iridology cure?

Iridology represents a factor of prevention rather than an element of post-treatment. Through a careful and accurate examination of the eye, it is possible to deepen one’s knowledge of oneself and understand what are physical indications, alarm bells, that the body also sends through the coloring of the eye.

Basically, the observation of the iris is able to establish the general health of the subject , his predisposition to diseases, his weakness or physical strength, resistance to stress, response to diseases and physical and mental resilience. , should these arise.

With iridology it is possible to opt for a preventive strategy , thanks to which the individual becomes aware of the potential difficulties and thus take preventive countermeasures to avoid the problems .

The iridologist through the eye survey will help the patient in this process, choosing the most suitable advice for his person and not only in relation to the disease or symptom he presents.


For whom is iridology useful?

It is estimated that the genotypic, phenotypic, organic and functional iris signs are approximately 1600, each eye mapping is unique and unrepeatable : perhaps one day the iris will be used as identification for each subject being ten times safer than fingerprints .

It is also true that the iris changes and changes its structure according to the lifestyle of the person, the diet, the drugs used, the environment in which one lives, so, from the point of view of a vision holistic, the iridologist will evaluate not only the reading of the iris, which will give him notable suggestions, but also the whole physical person and not and the various factors that have guided his life.

Iridology is generally indicated for every person who wants to go deeper about the knowledge of himself and his health , understand momentary imbalances and individual predispositions. The aim is to act preventively, trying to anticipate the healthier lifestyle that allows the person to avoid the development of a certain pathology.

Far from being a divinatory art, iridology bases its principle on the fact that each sector of the iris corresponds to an organ of the human body. For example, severe liver disorders are known to tinge the conjunctiva yellow or the pupil to dilate or shrink in drug users. Similarly, the presence of spots or pigmentation or other signs manifest ongoing diseases.


Iridology and the work of the iridologist


The law in Italy and abroad

In Italy, iridology has spread thanks to several researchers; many of them were trained in German schools but others have brought novelties and new fields of application to this technique. The way of understanding iridology in Italy is considered quite complete. In France, England, in the United States it is equally recognized and practiced.

In the Peninsula, iridological analysis often merges with other branches of knowledge, such as psychological analysis and physical investigation, with the aim of applying different healing techniques to the patient , i.e. acting from a food, phytotherapeutic, homeopathic, psychological point of view. , emotional, in short, holistic.

Much criticism has been leveled at iridology and its diagnostic techniques; many classify it as a pseudo-science or as a diagnosis of little value. Recent studies carried out in Europe and in the United States are reconfirming iridology as a diagnostic and preventive science also for the general practitioner : in the techniques of control, verification, identification of a person, reading of the iris is increasingly used as a tool for great completeness.


Associations and reference bodies

In Italy there are associations such as ASSIRI (Italian Iridological Association), which, in addition to offering a list of iridologists, presents courses and updates on the discipline; there is also the iridology course of the University of Urbino, with the course of applied iridology ; finally it is worth mentioning a site that presents all the literature on the subject is .
