Iridology: What is it? How can it help?

What is Iridology?

Iridology is the science and practice of eye analysis revealing a person’s relative state of health.  The study of the iris provides information on genetic predispositions, inflammation, toxicity and stresses, providing clues to potential health problems.

Iridology does not identify and diagnose medical diseases, rather it shows the conditions in the body that can or will eventually lead to specific diseases.  In this way, Iridology can be of tremendous benefit in preventing disease before it manifests, utilizing the tools of nutrition and lifestyle to direct the body into a higher state of health.

We offer Iridology Services and Iridology Courses by our International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA) Certified Iridology Instructors.

An Iridology assessment is an important first step in your natural health program.  It reveals potential genetic predispositions to weakness in the organs and systems of the body.  It gives new insight as to the stresses, toxicities, and potential imbalances that may have occurred in the past, occur in the present or may potentially occur in the future.

The next logical step in the process is determining the specific Super Foods (nutrient concentrated foods), herbs and supplement that best suits the individual.  Extensive knowledge of these modalities is very important to make the difference in becoming radiantly healthy!

It is also important to identify the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that may be blocking your desired level of health from manifesting. Iridology highlights personality characteristics and the potential emotional loops that keep replicating the past or the same experience in your life.

Who should learn Iridology?

Iridology is helpful for massage therapists, physiotherapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, nurses, colon hydro-therapists, reflexologist, natural/holistic health practitioners and energy healers. Understanding Iridology helps a health professional see which areas a client needs to focus on to maintain optimal health.

Anyone whose work supports the health and well-being of others would find an Iridology course taught by an IIPA certified instructor a valuable tool is their practice. Learning Iridology is also recommended for those who are interested in taking control of their own health!  Even if you do not wish to become fully certified, the Level I and Level II Iridology Courses will provide valuable information for understanding health and well-being.

The Role of Iridology in Natural Health

There is an important distinction between a medical doctor and an Iridologist.  A doctor diagnoses and treats disease, and is the sole authority on what drugs or surgery may be required according to traditional medical practices.  The patient is essentially a passive participant in the process.

An Iridologist educates their client so they can make informed decisions with their health.  Instead of a diagnosis, Iridology is an assessment to determine the underlying imbalances within the body and helps determine what can be done to support the body’s natural healing process.

The nature of health care is changing and many people with chronic, degenerative diseases are taking more responsibility for the course of their recovery program.  There are also many people who know they can have increased health and improve their overall performance.  They know that there is more to themselves and their life than what they are currently experiencing.

People are becoming increasingly aware of the genetic, environmental, mental/emotional, and nutritional factors creating formation of any health concern.  Iridology is a powerful way for everyone to connect more deeply within themselves and the innate healing intelligence within the body.

The Iridologist  plays a coaching role by educating the client about this healing intelligence, how the body works, how to make healthy food choices, what thoughts/beliefs need to be changed, what high quality nutritional products are needed, and other services that may assist them in their program.

This trend will have a positive impact of the health care system because it will begin to reduce the need for expensive procedures, elevate the baseline health of participating individuals, and introduce the “ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure” truism to the health care field.

How long has Iridology been practiced?

Iridology has been practiced since the 1800’s

Hungarian Dr. Ignatz Von Peczley was the first Iridologist to have made a chart, or “map” of the iris, illustrating how it corresponds to the physical body. Since then, Iridology has been researched, studied and thoroughly documented throughout the European countries and Russia. A majority of Iridology research was performed in Germany, where Iridology is used by physicians as a means of identifying genetic health tendencies and current states of the body systems by examining the nerve reflexes in the iris.

Dr. Bernard Jensen introduced Iridology to North America over 50 years ago, and remains one of the pioneers of this movement.  His knowledge came from Europe, where Iridology is extensively integrated and used in the medical system by medical doctors.

Dr. Jensen worked for many years helping people to become healthy and the assisted them with health challenges on his natural health ranch in California.  He wrote many books on natural health and nutrition. His protégé and assistant Dr. Ellen Tart studied with him and became his assistant in performing thousands of iris analysis as well as helping him to write his books.

Dr. Ellen Tart was monumental in bridging the gap with what Dr. Jensen had learned and practiced for 50 years and combining it with the European research and studies.

Dr. Bernard Jensen asked Ellen Tart to carrying on his work combining it with the new studies which she has done and in the process she fell in Love with Dr. Jensen’s son, Art, and they married and so Ellen is now Dr. Ellen Tart-Jensen.
