What is Iridology?


Iridology is a study of the iris of the eyes, as it relates to cellular weaknesses (genetics) and congestion (toxicity). Iridology is practiced worldwide and dates back over 500 years. The Science of Iridology is growing leaps and bounds as specialized cameras and computers are designed to take an even deeper look into the study of the iris. Every cell in your body reflects itself through the nervous system to the brain and optic nerves. As tissues become weakened and congested, changes occur in the fibers of the iris of the eye. The iris fibers have been mapped out correspondingly to the related tissues in the body. By observing these fibers, changes and colors in the iris, we can analyze your body's strengths, weaknesses and toxicity levels.

What is an Iris Analysis? 

Your iris fibers tell as story of your body's cellular strengths and weaknesses, starting with your inherent patterns given to you by your parents. The iris of the eye registers tissue changes as they relate to cellular strengths, weaknesses and toxicity. An Iris Report is especially valuable in your journey of getting healthy and healing!

The History of Iridology

The first book written about analyzing the state or condition of the body's cells through observation within the fibers of the Iris of the Eye was in 1560. Modern Iridology however, is attributed to Dr. Ignatz von Peczely, a medical and Homeopathic Physician back in the early 1800's. He was first to start mapping out the chart, which is now known as the road map to the cells and their conditions within the body.


Peczely's Story

In the early 1800's a young lad named Ignatz von Peczely of Egervar near Budapest, Hungary, caught an awl in his garden. The 11-year-old boy struggled with the frightened bird and met with its fierce claws as the bird instinctively tried to defend itself. In the struggle, the boy accidentally broke the owl's leg. As the youth and the owl glared into one another's eye, the boy observed a black stripe rising in the owl's eye. Von Peczely bandaged the owl's leg and nursed it back to health and released the bird; but the bird stayed in the garden several years afterward. Von Peczely observed the appearance of white and crooked lines in the owl's eye where the black stripe had originally appeared.

The black stripe eventually became a tiny black spot surrounded by white lines and shading. When von Peczely grew up, he became a physician and never forgot the incident with the owl. Working on the surgical ward of a college hospital afforded hire an opportunity to observe the irides of patients after accidents, and preceding and following surgery. A study of the changes in the eye coincided with their injuries, surgery or illnesses, and this convinced von Peczely that there was a reflex relationship between the various markings in the iris and the rest of the body, He was certain that the iris mirrored tissue changes of the various organs. Von Peczely created the first chart of the iris based on his findings.

At a similar point in history, Reverend Nils Liljequist, a Swedish clergyman, discovered a relationship between various drug settlements and specific discolorations in the iris of the eye. Extremely ill as a youth, LiIjequist was given massive quantities of quinine. This led to a correlation of the yellow-green discoloration in his eye to the use of quinine.

Advancements in Iridology


Iridology has progressed tremendously since the 1800s. Numerous scientists and doctors have researched iridology, revising and improving the iris chart. Iridology is based on scientific observation. It is the kind of science that cannot be related through scientific tests, for it does not provide clinical information. The state of the art in Western medicine cannot reveal all the answers either. It is difficult to test one scientific system against another when two types of data are given.

Dr. Bernard Jensen pioneered the science of iridology in the United States. He developed one of the most comprehensive iris charts showing the location of the organs as they reflex in the iris of the eye. His chart is still the most accurate one available today. 


Iridology is truly the only viable soft tissue analysis where you can actually see the toxicity and weakness of tissues and the systems of the body. Many physicians have contributed greatly to the Science of Iridology. These include Dr. Bernard Jensen, and Drs. Collins, Liljequist, Thiel, Lindlahr, Lane, Felke, Reinhold, Havard, Anderschou, Hense, etc.

Cellular Strengths and Weaknesses

The health of the physical body depends upon the health of its cells. When cells (tissues, organs and glands) become weakened from genetics, inflammation (acidosis) or toxicity, a domino effect of symptoms can manifest, causing what some call disease. These cells then become prey for parasites or immune response. Knowing your body's weaknesses is vital in truly understanding "why" you experience what you do and how to correct these conditions. By strengthening your cellular weaknesses, vitality and health will be yours.


One of the most intriguing aspects of the iris is its ability to show the toxic and congestive levels within the body. This can totally change the color of the iris itself. Toxicity levels and the degree or age of this toxicity has a profound effect upon the fibers of the iris. An example of this is when chronic congestion develops in the body; the iris can change a blue-eye person to brown eyes. Toxic medications like sulfa drugs, antibiotics etc, can accumulate in the tissues of the body and can change the iris color as well. The accumulations of toxicity in the body is by far the #1 killer of cells. This toxicity indulges mucus and glue-like plaque from refined sugars, dairy products, and refined flours, to chemicals including pesticides, preservatives, artificial sugars, colors, and flavorings, etc. Included in this are by-products from high protein diets. All these substances cause cancer, acidosis and tissue failure. It is vital in restoring the function of the tissue and developing a helathy body, to remove this build-up of toxicity within it. 

Drug Deposits in the Iris
Weak Constitution


Iridology is the only science at this time that can see soft tissue weaknesses and toxicity. At the core of this is your genetics. Your physical body is a genetic body. Al your cells in your body are genetically coded. Some are strong cells and some are weak. This all depends upon your family tree. The importance of this becomes evident when one understands that 95% or more of diseases are nothing more than tissue weaknesses and the reflex conditions that can result. An example of this is your adrenal glands. When they are weak you can develop low blood pressure, ovarian cysts, fibroids, fibrocystic issues, fibromyalgia, prostatitis, prostate cancer, cancers of the breasts, cervix, uterus or ovaries, anxieties, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, heart arrhythmia's, etc; All of this and more, just from adrenal failure. Knowing your genetics can help you to understand your body better and what to fix. You can always strengthen your genetic weaknesses. You do not have to live with these and/or any other weaknesses.


Iridology is not a science about diseases or the diagnosis of symptoms. Iridology's approach is holistic and takes in the interrelationship of all tissues of the body. As you can see from above when the cells of the body are weakened or become toxic, "dis-ease" is the end result. This is the first time in history that humans have discovered a truly viable science that can look at soft tissue. X-rays including cat scans and MRI's can only see tissues when the density is confined or hardened. Dyes must be used to expose profusion capacities thereby creating conclusions of tissue function.


Health and Regeneration 

Iridology is a "road map" of the physical body and allows one to determine the actual weakness and toxicity within it. This is instrumental in ones ability to rebuild and regenerate one's self. By detoxification (cleansing) and alkalizing the body with raw fruits and vegetables you can regenerate yourself. As the health of the body is restored, the iris will change its structure and color to reflect these changes.

Iridolgy is a tool to help you understand your body and why you are having the troubles that you are experiencing. Remember you weaknesses start with your family tree (genetics), and increase as you live your life, eating, drinking, and in many different ways ingesting toxicity. You create your own dis-ease. Inflammation, ulceration, deterioration (degeneration) and death of cells is a process we have almost complete control of. Detoxification and cellular regeneration go hand-in-hand. Stop putting toxicity into the body! Eat living foods, use herbs and watch the magic of God and nature!
