The study of the iris, the coloured section of the eye, has a long history in most ancient Asian medicines. In the late 1700s and 1800s it was taken up by European physicians and naturopaths who saw strong connections between markings in the iris and the illnesses they were encountering.
With the advent of modern medicine, iridology took a back seat, however like so many complementary therapies today it is once again being seen as a valuable diagnostic tool.
As a nutritional therapist, it’s vital for me to take a detailed case history, listen to your health concerns and discuss dietary and lifestyle habits.
Examining your iris is an additional non-invasive diagnostic tool during your consultation. I don’t use iridology on its own, but rather as a cross-check to the notes I’ve made and the information you’ve shared. It helps fine-tune your individual health plan!
