Questions & Answers

Why is iridology useful?

Iridology is a diagnostic tool that points directly to areas of potential or existing health problems.

Does it hurt?

Iridology is totally painless. We only use a few seconds of LED light and take your photo very quickly

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 operate to 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?

The iris takes months or years to register changes. It’s recommended to compare photos yearly. New iridology evidence dictates that the iris acquires signs over the years but it does not get rid of signs as a result of taking medicines or changing your diet.

How long does the appointment last for?

The initial appointment can last around 1 1/2 hours depending on the client’s needs. There’s a lot of information and insight gained from observing the iris and the client need 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’s not used to diagnose cancer or other disease. These types of diagnoses are made by medical doctors. There may be signs in the iris that can represent cancer or tumours but it’s not a diagnosis a naturopath can make. Naturopaths are not allowed to make medical diagnosis or to treat cancer. The naturopath’s role is to support the body and enhance the person’s immune system so the body can re-gain its natural tendency to health.

Can you see heart problems in the iris?

The iris may show genetic and family relatedcardiovascular history. It mayalso show weakness or congestion in the heart but it cannot diagnose heart conditions. Medical doctors diagnose heart conditions. It’s believed what the iris shows is at least 80% inherited and you can see at least three generations back in your ancestry.

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

Iridology helps to understand your health tendencies and body systems 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 insights into how to support the body by the use of natural medicines.

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 but it can’t indicate the presence of parasites. However, you may be able to see inflammation, irregularity and hormonal dysfunction affecting the digestive system.

Can you see candida in the iris?

There are some schools of thought in iridology that speak of ‘candida’ signs but this is not very common. 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 is an Ophthalmologist or 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 the iris, it’s not possible to diagnose dementia with iridology.

How often is it recommended to have an iridology consultation?

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