people go to doctors when they need relief from symptoms, which have
arisen in the body. If we wait for these symptoms to worsen the doctor
can use them in his diagnosis. But by the time the diagnosis is made,
one is often already in serious trouble. The iridologist, on the other
hand, does not have to wait until the patient suffers from painful
symptoms. He or she can discover imbalance and even very low levels of
inflammations, which is how every disease starts. Waiting for symptoms
to arise while the evolution of the disease has been going on for years
is hardly a safe way to maintain health. Iridology is all about
identifying early manifestation of disease.
true originator is Dr. Ignatz Von Peczely (1826-1911). At the age of
eleven Von Peczely found an owl trapped in his garden. He tried to free
the owl and in the process accidentally broke one of its legs. Soon he
started to notice the appearance of a dark stripe in the lower part of
the bird’s eye. Young Von Peczely nursed the owl to health and
released it when it was well, but the owl chose to stay in his garden
for several years. During this time, Von Peczely observed the appearance
of white lines in the owl’s eyes in that part of the eye where the
black stripe had been located, which we recognize today as healing sign.
The event made a strong impression on the boy and remained in his
memory. When he received his Doctor in Medicine degree he started
studying the iris of hospital patients before and after operations,
trying to systematically verify his earlier observations. In addition,
he performed many autopsies, confirming the existence of ailments he had
estimated from the iris of patients before they died. In 1886, the news
of Von Peczely’s discovery was published for the entire world to see
in the book The eye diagnosis
mystery of the iris has been under investigation by truth seekers around
the globe, and is not isolated to one culture or society. Nowadays,
iridology is an accurate, functional, useful and enlightening tool for
understanding the human body.
early manifestation of disease
out of ten people over the age of 40 have a chronic disease. Why did
they not get treated at the onset of these chronic conditions? Simply,
because most people are walking around with disease in progress and are
unaware of it until symptoms appear. Is there a way of identifying the
start of these conditions? Is there a way to see what is going on in the
body before symptoms arise?

complementary medicines, as it is a diagnostic aid, which complements
other methods of diagnosis and integration with any form of treatment.
the U.S.A., Dr. Jensen and others have pioneered this healing art and
have developed sophisticated cameras to help identify iris markings. In
Russia, doctors are using iridology in mental hospitals, where
information gained is used to guide detoxification and nutritional
programmes, which, when applied, relieve mental illness.

are many alternatives which provide different opportunities for
detecting the early manifestation of illness. One can make corrections
and reverse disease, provided you are prepared to make the necessary
changes in nutritional behavior and undergo the necessary detoxification
to restore health. Used together with body and regenerative therapeutic
techniques and treatment, iridology is living proof of natural healing
and of the fact that suppression of disease is not a cure. It also
provides a preventative approach to health as well as warning of
weaknesses developing in specific areas of the body.
The iris is a
complex structure revealing pathology as well as healing signs. As
healing occurs in the body, we find that the dark lacunas in the iris
start filling with white healing lines. These white healing lines are
indicating that tissue changes are taking place within the body. When
the correct treatment is applied, these markings change color, develop
healing lines or disappear altogether. The iris of a health person is
bright, clean and clear, radiating the happiness of harmonious living.

important. Tissue condition analysis lends itself to a different

patients towards better health involving them actively in their

Most of my
clients come to me after a trip to the doctor did not leave them feeling
better. They were still suffering from chronic fatigue, pains, aching
muscles and joints, digestive discomfort, and other conditions. These
are conditions that we regard as the early manifesting of disease.
Chronic conditions always begin with early manifestation such as
low-energy, skin problems, frequent colds, headaches, digestive
discomfort and other discomforts. Unfortunately, when these symptoms are
suppressed, we are on the way to creating a deep-seated chronic

professional, my ultimate goal is to include the following three
principles in the context restoring health with every individual:

Using detoxification, nutritional cure and safe natural therapies

high energy and good health. Iridology is the only single method of
health analysis that can assist in attaining these worthy goals. To read
the signs in the iris of the eye, the iris must illuminate and
magnified. One can use high quality medical torches and good magnifiers.
I prefer to make a permanent patient record by taking a photograph with
a specialized camera. We repeat the photograph after six months of
cleansing and nutritional therapy in order to monitor the healing.

struggling. The analysis reminded Leigh of having asthmatic tendencies
at a younger age, which she has managed to overcome with dietary
changes. Leigh admitted to experiencing continuous troubles with her
knees. The evidence of drug/chemical deposits in the issue is explained
by her lifelong habit of suppressing skin eruptions with medication.

that Leigh is blessed with a silk (strong) constitution. This also makes
her body with a strong willpower. She has high ambitions and is often
trying to cope with physical and mental overload. She has a strong mind,
clean goals and future plans. Sensing that her physiology is forcing her
to slow down and having to compromise goals is a frustrating realization
for her. The overload, along with her inability to cope with her
personal challenges is causing her enormous stress.

road to health:
The eyes are
like a road map, showing us the direction we must travel to find health.
Seen in this light, iridology is anything but frightening. It is
enlightening. What is frightening is to live life in fear – fear of
cancer, fear of heart diseases, fear of chronic degenerative disorders,
fear of the future. Too many people live with such fear. Iridology is
about letting go of fear. It is about preventative medicine rather than
fast cures. It is about the law of cause and effect. It is about
reaching an optimum level of health. It is to enable you, the reader, to
take charge, to take control and to take responsibility for your health.
We should not have to wait for our bodies to break down before we
finally attend to our health and try to repair what is left. An
understanding of our bodies in both positive and negative aspects is
essential for responsible living. Iridology opens our eyes, inviting us
to take a look at our initial body and to recognize the options and
opportunities for a better life.
