Gold Coast Holistic Iridology and Natural Therapy Information
What is Iridology?
... and how is Iridology used by Natural Therapists.
Iridology is the study of patterns and structures in the iris of the eye. It locates areas and stages of irritation and possible inflammation throughout the body.
The iris is a good indication of body constitution, showing inherent strengths and weaknesses.
Iridology is not a diagnostic tool to name a specific disease. However, together with taking a health history and other diagnostic procedures, the iridologist may conclude that a certain problem in a body exist and will endeavour to support the body to overcome that condition.
An Iridologist my use a torch and a magnify glass to have a close look at your eyes and their colour, lines and patterns. Another way is to take a picture of each eye, this will give the Iridologist time to study the eyes, and it helps to show the pictures to the patient to explain the diagnostic deduction. Eye pictures are also a good tool to compare the irises if another picture is taken after a completed treatment protocol.
The irises show distinct areas for each part of the body. The right eye show the right side of the body, the left eye the left side. The area close and around the pupil indicates the digestive tract. Colour and patterns in that area are used to help diagnosis of various digestive tract diseases. An under active digestive tract is easy to recognize.
The medical health system may not recognise iridology as a diagnostic tool, even so, Doctors themselves use various sign in and around the iris as diagnostic indication, such as anaemia, recognise by a bluish tint around the iris.
See below some typical iris pictures, as one can see, the lines are very distinct and each eye is totally different from one person to another... it must be stressed here again, Iridology is not a tool to diagnose a disease state, rather it is used to determine the constitution, strength and weaknesses of a person, as well as over or under function of various body system.
The difference between how an iris looks in a young active person compared to an old under active person is profound.
If an Iridologist sees obvious under active signs in a younger person, treatment advice will be given to counteract those signs with preventive natural therapy advice.
Above iris pictures are from 4 different people - just as an exercise, look closely at the ring of fibres around each pupil, the different structures and colours are obvious.
Most Naturopaths and Natural Health Centres use Iridology as a diagnostic tool within their consultation.

Iridology is used by most Naturopaths
Naturopaths are often called "Holistic Practitioners", because they believe that a patient has to be seen and treated as a whole being and not just as separate parts which may present certain symptoms. Part of their diagnositc tools is Iridology, which is b yitself a holistic way of looking a a person.
Holistic Practitioners or Holistic Natural Therapy or just Natural Therapy are just "General terms", not treatment modalities.
Holistic simply refers to the concept of seeing the physical - mental and spiritual body as one. The name Holistic means whole. Most categories within the Natural Therapy field have an underlying philosophy of treating holistically, meaning treating the whole person, not just a part of it. This is contrary to the medical system which treats symptoms and the individual parts of a whole being.
Typical modalities which use Iridology as a diagnostic guide are;
