Questions & Answers

Why is iridology useful?

Iridology is a diagnostic tool that points directly to areas of existing or potential health problems. It indicates familial predispositions, health tendencies or otherwise  inheritance. This information and can be used to support the person physically and psychologically to manifest the best of their health.

Does it hurt?

Iridology is totally painless whether it will be performed by using a lighted loupe or by taking a high resolution digital iris photo.

Can iridology be applied to children and babies?

Iridology is suitable for anyone over the age of two. Some children love the idea of seeing their eyes while others don’t. We work with the individual and are guided by their likes and dislikes. With children, being able to secure images early is essential to monitoring their health and longevity throughout their lives.

Can you do iridology in a follow-up appointment to see how the iris changed after taking the medicines prescribed?

It’s recommended to compare photos yearly so we can monitor for changes. New iridology evidence dictates that the iris develops signs over the years; the iris keeps registering health and life events as we grow older. It is now understood that iris signs, once they appear in the iris are there for life. There is more evidence to this effect than to the popular belief that developed iris signs will disappear as a result of taking medicines or changing your diet.

How long does the appointment last for?

The initial appointment can last approximately 1 hour depending on the client’s needs. There’s a lot of information and insight gained from observing the iris and the client needs time to assimilate and integrate this valuable understanding.

Can I have a shorter initial consultation?

Yes you can. A quick iris check is always better than no iris check at all, however, a thorough iris analysis will be more beneficial.

Can you see cancer in the iris?

While iridology can be used as a diagnostic tool, it cannot be used to diagnose cancer or any other diseases. Disease diagnoses are made by medical doctors. Whilst there may be signs in the iris that can represent cancer or a tumour, it is not a diagnosis a naturopath can ethically make. The naturopath’s role is to support the body and enhance the person’s immune system so the body can be restored to health.

Can you see heart problems in the iris?

The iris may show genetic and family-related cardiovascular history. It may also show weakness or congestion in the heart; however, it cannot be used to diagnose heart conditions. Medical doctors diagnose heart conditions.

Can you see why I’m not getting pregnant in the iris?

Iridology helps to understand your health tendencies and body system imbalances but not the reason/s why you are not getting pregnant. There are many reasons for infertility and sometimes there are inexplicable reasons. Iridology gives us guidelines into how to support the body to manifest the best of your health.

Can you see if I have parasites in my bowels?

The iris is an excellent tool for determining the state of the digestive system.  It can show how the stomach, small and large intestines are working in general; it cannot, however, indicate the presence of parasites.

Can you see candida in the iris?

In the iris, you can see signs that indicate that your digestive system in not in good health but you can’t see candida over-growth as such or yeast infections or fungal infections for that matter. However, you might be able to see inflammation and digestive dysfunction which go hand in hand with dysbiosis and candida overgrowth.

Can you see if I have any eye sight problems?

For eye sight problems the right practitioner to consult is an Ophthalmologist, Eye Doctor or Specialist.

Can you see if I have inherited dementia?

Dementia is characterised among other things by brain tissue degeneration. Even when you can observe tissue degeneration in general in the iris, it’s not possible to diagnose dementia with iridology.

How often is it recommended to have an iridology consultation?

It is recommended to have iris photos taken once a year to monitor if the iris fibres change. Changes in the fibres or any other new iris signs can indicate pathology development. Thanks to our iris photo database we have seen changes on client’s irises over the years and we have subsequently referred clients to their doctors for further investigations. These further investigations have resulted in improved health outcomes for our clients.
