A basic guide to iridology diagnosis in Sydney

Iridology is often used by naturopaths to help determine the state of their client’s health. There are different tools that naturopaths employ to analyse the iris, which is the coloured doughnut-shaped tissue of the eye, such as an iris camera or a torch and magnifying glass.

While iridology doesn’t enable naturopaths to diagnose diseases, the iris can be used to identify if a range of different body systems aren’t functioning correctly or are over stressed. There are also various iris signs that can signify if specific health problems are evident.

Sign 1: Cholesterol ring

Otherwise referred to as arcus senilis, the cholesterol ring is a frosted white circle which appears in the outer perimeter of the iris. If an individual has a cholesterol ring this often highlights they have high cholesterol levels or genetically have a higher risk of developing heart disease. Health advice for this condition includes regular exercise, weight loss and taking fish oils.

Sign 2: Nerve rings

Nerve rings are identified as concentric arcs which can be seen anywhere on the iris. These signify if an individual carries stress in their body. The higher the number of nerve rings an individual has, the more stress they are carrying. Epsom salt baths, kava, passion flower, yoga and meditation can help to calm a nervous system that is overactive.

Sign 3: Lymphatic rosary

Identified as a series of small white or cream beads that appear on the outer iris perimeter, a lymphatic rosary often highlights a sluggish lymphatic system. It also reveals that the immune system could need assistance with garlic and vitamin C, as well as echinacea and zinc.

Sign 4: Pulsating pupil

When a pupil can be seen pulsating in and out or is larger than it’s normal size, this is often an indicator that you could be adrenally exhausted and may be suffering from fatigue. If you take vitamin B, along with herbs related to the adrenals, such as rehmannia or liquorice, this can help you to sleep better.

Sign 5: Fine red blood vessels

If fine red blood vessels can be seen in the whites of the eyes surrounding the iris, this is a sign that the individual may suffer from allergies. To treat this it’s important to identify and remove the allergen.
