The eyes are the window to the soul" William Shakespeare.

What is an Equine Iridology analysis?

Iridology is the science of assessing horse health by analyzing the fiber structure and color of the iris of the eye.
The founder of Equine Iridology, Mercedes Colburn, ND, Ph.D., with a consultation with her Veterinarian, Dr. Dena Eckerdt, created a remarkable map of the horses' eye, which identifies the intricate intestinal system of the horse. 
The topography of the iris reflects the primary structure of the body.  Each major system of the body is mapped to a specific location in the iris.  
The analysis consists of studying the iris of the horse via an examination of the "Four Tunnels" Colon, Kidney, Lungs, Skin.
