Disease doesn’t come about overnight.  Our bodies mould to the kind of lives we live, for better or for worse and the iris moulds itself to the changes these construct in the iris away from the ideal.  Bernard Jensen

This opens up to a world of specific and precise analysis establishing a dynamic tool for effective preventative and curative healing.


The colours and structures of the iris are like a prodigious autobiography condensed into two small, round and colourful volumes. Iridology is the study of this feature, its pigmentation and structural markings. Every human being possess a unique pair of irises, as no two people have the exact same physiology. Every pair of irises tells its own story.


Iridology today is a well defined art with an ever expanding pool of knowledge. It belongs with the holistic healing arts in that it seeks out the origin of disease. We do not catch a disease, we create them by breaking down our natural defenses by the way we think, live, feel, eat and drink and all of these create changes within our tissues that reflect onto the iris.


In the analysis, weaknesses are revealed that show a pathway to the origin of the pathology exposing in the process the most favourable route to treating the condition.


Iridology shares a philosophy of health and disease with many drugless healing arts such as the use of nutrition, herbal healing, homeopathy, naturopathy and other similar approaches in treating disease.


The human body holds a fine balance between health and unhealthiness, an equilibrium that is naturally kept by an intricate and intelligent set of processes orchestrated by the body. The body knows how to heal itself and also knows how to show us where an imbalance has occurred by marking the iris. This is what the art and science of iridology utilises in its practice.
