Iridology

 

Iridology is thousands of years old. For example, the Aztecs would have practiced iris diagnostics long before the Christian era. In Europe, iridology was only discovered and studied by the Hungarian physician Von Peczely in the mid-19th century. He was convinced that there was a causal link between the condition of our organs and the structure and shape of the iris. Von Peczely was the first to develop a topographic map of the eyes on which all of our organs, glands, muscles and joints were located. Von Peczely's life's work has naturally evolved over the years. In the 20th century, for example, researchers J.Broy, J.Deck and D.Hall made 'new' maps.

Iridology (iris = rainbow, skopein = search) is a form of diagnostics that makes it possible to recognize functional disorders in the human body through observation of abnormal spots, lines and discolorations in the iris of the eye. It is a method to gain insight into your condition. The iris provides information about a person's disposition, which means the sum of an individual's potential strengths and weaknesses. The colored ring around the pupil (the iris) is, as it were, a map on which the organs from the body are represented. Every area can be seen in the eye, for example the respiratory tract, kidneys, liver, digestion and skin. Marks such as pigment on the area of an organ tell something about the physical situation or the emotional meaning of that organ. The color and the thread pattern of the iris also determine which physical condition (constitution) you have and which lifestyle best suits it. We cannot see diseases, but we can see the places where toxins are stored. In natural medicine we assume that illness arises because the body is less able to eliminate toxins sufficiently or the person is less able to let go of old pain. The toxins that are retained can cause all kinds of complaints. By giving (preventive) attention to celiminating toxins, it is possible to remedy or prevent health complaints. Iridology is a way to gain insight into your constitution. The iris gives information about the predisposition of a person. The predisposition is a blueprint of the individual, consisting of what the strengths of the individual are and the vulnerable characteristics.

 

Which constitution do you have?

  • Lymphatic constitution
  • It is characterized by a blue-gray iris with rather thick, ray-shaped fibers, which look like with wet hair combed with a wide-toothed comb. The lymphatic type has an increased susceptibility to gastrointestinal and lung mucosal disorders. The lymph nodes are often hard at work detoxing the body.

  • Neurogenic constitution
  • The iris color is blue-gray like the previous type, but with finer rays. The neurogenic type predisposes to disorders of the central and sympathetic nervous system. This can manifest itself in nervousness, allergies, headaches and migraines.

  • Hydrogenic constitution
  • This forms the third main group and has a water blue iris. The rays are coarse in structure, especially in the area of the disturbed organ. A specific sign here is a spread of small white spots that resemble snowflakes. This is the constitution with special predisposition to acidification processes such as: rheumatism, gout, eczema and disorders of the kidneys and bladder.

  • Biliary constitution
  • None of the previous structures is characteristic in this. Most brown and brown-green eyes fall into this group. Here, too, some veiling of the iris is sometimes found. This type is to be considered as a preliminary stage of the hematogenous type.

  • Haematogenic constitution
  • This is characterized by a covering, an "Überschmierung" of the original structure. It seems as if a layer of pigment has been spread over the eye, so that the rays can no longer be distinguished individually. Usually there is a green-brown iris, although this is not necessary. The hematogenic constitution is predisposed to diseases of the blood and metabolic diseases.
