Iris Signs: Seeing inside yourself

Iris signs are important in iridology because they can give an indication of your genetic potential, health tendencies and predispositions. Iris signs are the core of Sydney Iridology’s detective work and may uncover nutritional deficiencies, digestive issues, circulatory or lymphatic problems, or they can represent how well your organs and systems are functioning. See: Iridology – Iris Imaging

Iris signs may reveal physical or psychological indications or a combination of both, for example if there is stress or anxiety. It is also understood that as you grow older you are likely to experience more of your inherited tendencies as revealed by your iris signs. For this reason it is important to start recording your iris signs from a young age. Taking regular iris images allows Sydney Iridology to monitor and compare your iris signs over the years.
