“What is iridology?” is a question we receive very often. Let’s explore what it is and the role that iridology plays in health and wellness.
Iridology can be defined as the science of observing, studying and analyzing signs in the iris (the colored part of the eye). Iris signs reflect the genetic inherited pattern in constitutions, together with structural, color and neurological changes that occur within the iris over a period of time. These signs may indicate abnormal tissue conditions.
That’s quite a mouth full, but what does it all actually mean? Dr Florrie Kerschbaumer, founder of the Iridology Institute of Southern Africa, explains:
“Iridology is simply an analytical process used as a diagnostic technique to complement any health care science or approach. The iridologist assesses structure and color variations, as well as markings that occur in the colored part of the eye.”
