What Iridology CAN DO:

Iridology can reveal the inherent strengths and deficiencies of organs, glands, and tissues.

Inherently weak organs do not utilize nutrients as well as they should, nor do they have the ability to discharge toxicity. » Iridology can show the potential ability of an organ to react to illness.

White raised signs can show potential for irritability and possible inflammation. Dark gray or black areas can indicate little or no ability to react.

Iridology can show familial patterns of various syndromes and pathologies such as gastrointestinal disorders, hypoglycemia, blood anomalies, or heart problems.
Iridology can show (through the color of the iris and genetic patterns) certain foods that a person could have difficulty digesting or utilizing.

Iridology can lead from the pupil border, areas of the spine that may have a subluxation. 

Iridology can show potential central and autonomic nervous system imbalance and circulatory disturbances. 

Iridology can indicate potential connective tissue weakness and a tendency for varicose veins, Hiatal hernias, hemorrhoids, or scoliosis. 

Iridology can indicate the potential for glandular deficiencies. 
Iridology can indicate the potential for high uric acid levels, serum cholesterol levels and lymphatic congestion.

What Iridology CAN NOT Do 

Diagnose or give the name of any disease a person may have or have had or identified pathology.

Determine if a person has had surgery unless it was an eye surgery. 

Indicate precise blood pressure levels. 

Determine if a person has parasites or indicate the presence of yeast infections such as candida Albicans in the iris, though signs of fermentation leading to the presence of yeast and parasites can be seen in the sclera.
Confirm the presence of viruses, germ life, or bacterial invasion of the body. 

Determine if a woman is pregnant or has had an abortion.  Indicate whether a tumor is present, or what size it may be.  Show whether or not a person has kidney stones or gallstones.  Give exact cholesterol or uric acid levels in the body.

Determine whether or not hemorrhage exists or where it is located unless it is located in the visible layers of the eye.  Show if arteries are blocked or hardened, though the potential for this may be seen.

Distinguish a person's gender or age, predict a person’s life span or impending time of death. 

Tell whether or not a person needs surgery. 

Iridology cannot locate a specific tooth that may be problematic. 

Show if a person has ingested poison or been bitten by a poisonous spider or snake.

The topography of the iris reflects the major tissue structure of the body. Each major system of the body is mapped to a specific location in the iris. Right Eye Right side of the body Liver Gallbladder and pancreas, etc. The stomach colon is outside of the pupil.

Ascending colon and half of the transcending colon. The left eye relates to the left side of the body: heart, spleen, etc. The stomach and colon are outside of the pupil. The other half is of the transcending colon and descending colon. Add a description here.

Iridology insight

We are born with specific strengths and weaknesses from our ancestors, especially the past three generations.
Iris signs that develop in the eye are permanent signs directly related to the diet and lifestyle habits of those who came before us.
If we choose to pay attention to these signs and work with our diet and lifestyle habits to strengthen these inherited weaknesses, we can promote healthier future generations in our family and better health ourselves.
Physical inheritance (the constitution you inherited)+ Environment (Diet and Lifestyle, etc.)+ Emotional and Spiritual (factors)+ Age (is everything; it's a factor) Each element of this Health Equation is assessed on how it is affecting the health of a person. 


Iridology is NOT a diagnostic tool. Iridologists use Iridology methods to help individuals strengthen the health with which they were born. 
Iridologists use Iridology methods to help individuals strengthen the health with which they were born. Iridology is a non-invasive method of analysis that enables you to gain insight into specific aspects of health. History dating back to the ancient Babylonians confirms that this method was used to determine health problems.
Modern history has seen advances in both understanding and technique to the point where it is employed by many practitioners in both alternate and mainstream medicine as a system of health assessment.
An iris evaluation will enable you to identify specific constitutional aspects of yourself relative to genetic factors. This makes it possible to determine health and lifestyle considerations that could possibly increase the quality of life. In addition to this, it is possible to determine organ weakness, spinal misalignment, and to some extent, psychological attributes.
It is not meant to replace conventional diagnoses but should be seen in the context of providing information that might identify specific predispositions. You should always consult your Doctor or other Health Care Professional if you have any concerns.
