Iridology: Exploring Your Health Landscape

“Your eyes are beautiful.” The eyes can be looked at as a road map or blueprint that can guide you as you move forward in exploring this gift of Life. I offer photographs of the structure of the fibers of the iris as a way to learn more about the dynamic development of the body. This includes while in the womb and also during the body’s adapting to the stresses of life during the person’s lifetime.

At the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine, Dr. Victoria Goldsten and I offer a combined program of iris assessment and photography, along with the Washington Institute’s “Natural Health Exam” and natural remedy recommendations.

Study of the eye can be traced back to ancient Chinese literature. Modern neuroscience is linking the eyes with social skills. This is giving us clues as to why iridologists throughout healthcare history have been so dedicated to using it as a way to help heal the whole person: they sensed that there was something important linking the eyes to the rest of the body. We now have increasing amounts of science to back up that intricate relationship of all parts of the body. I have been the Principal Investigator of an IRB project to research the topic, “Ocular Signs of Cardiac Pathology.” I have extensive experience with the Rayid™ system of neuro-emotional iridology.  

I have been certified by the International Iridology Practitioners Association, and support their approach to iridology:
Eyes have long been referred to as the “Windows of the Soul”. But few people are aware of just how true this observation is. Accurate analysis of iris structure and pigmentation provides information about you or your clients that is hard to find through other methods. This information is so valuable that Iridology deserves to become a widely practiced assessment tool in both the physical and psychological health fields.

There are a multitude of factors that influence our health and personality, and many of these factors are reflected in the iris. Look closely at your eyes in a mirror, and then at the irises of those around you. You will see many different patterns of iris fibers and colors. Like fingerprints or faces, no two are exactly alike, and neither are we! The iris structure is so unique it is now being used for security identification at ATM machines and airports. Microsoft’s “house of the future” will use an eye scanner to identify residents and unlock the door.
The Health Status Equation
In order to fully appreciate what the iris reveals, let’s first consider this equation:

We all inherit certain combinations of physical traits. We can observe some of these origins from our family tree, but how much this specifically affects you? Diet and lifestyle have a great impact on some people, but why are others able to get away with abusing their bodies? Which mental and emotional aspects significantly affect our physical health? And as we get older, we lose our resiliency at different rates. What is our individual rate?

Iridology takes a lot of the guesswork out of these questions. Going through life without this information is like taking a trip without a map. What are your chances of arriving at your desired destination? Will you get there efficiently, or end up taking many detours along the way? And how will you know where you are heading next?

Using the road map or blueprint contained in the iris, you can find out how well you are put together (and how much abuse your body can handle), where your body will tend to get sick, (including which organ systems are at greater risk), what specific underlying reasons contribute to your symptoms (which may vary from person to person with the same symptoms), and what emotional or behavioral factors are influencing these patterns. In short, it can show you where you came from, where you are headed, what kind of body you have for a vehicle, and what type of driver you are. With this knowledge, you can more effectively approach health challenges and also identify which preventive medicine practices would be most important for you to pursue…  — Bill Caradonna, N.D., R.Ph., Research Director -- International Iridology Practitioners Association
