IRIDOLOGY is the study of the irides of the eye, that is, the exposed nerve endings, which make up the coloured part of the eye, all of which are connected to the brain. On a parallel with Reflexology, where the practitioner can FEEL the abnormalities of the Reflex nerve endings, a trained Iridologist, can actually see a veritable Ordinance Survey map of the REFLEX NERVE ENDINGS EXPOSING genetic inheritance, congestive and irritative zones and their various inter-reactions, within the bodily systems. In the hands of those who are well versed in the Pathology of the Pathways of Disease, as well as Anatomy and Physiology, this provides a veritable microchip of information.
Iridology complements all therapeutic sciences because it provides the vital information needed in order to establish the root cause of ailments, thus revealing the appropriate treatments required. Hippocrates and Philostratus used Iridology. lridology was taught at the Medical School of Salerno and even the Chaldeans of Babylonia, in 1000 BC left records of Iride markings, with the relevant Anatomical reflexes painted onto stone slabs.
