In iridology we study the coloured portion of the eye - the iris.
The textures, patterns and markings seen in the iris are unique to the person. Together these features form a map which gives an iridologist valuable information about a person's inherited strengths and weaknesses. Knowing your weaknesses means we can take steps with food, supplements, lifestyle and more, to support, enhance, and protect the weak areas from breaking down.
You certainly may be able to avoid some of the health problems of your parents and grandparents when you understand how your body is programmed and what you can do to improve the programming.
The initial consultation includes a detailed case history taken with questions about your medical history, your current health status, lifestyle and diet. Assessment techniques may include a blood pressure check, physical examination, tongue and pulse examination, your eyes may be examined with a torch and magnifying glass and pictures will also be taken.
A herbal remedy, which is specifically made for you, will usually be prescribed and/or nutritional supplements, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes may be suggested. Herbal remedies are completely natural and are a gentler form of medicine, this can mean that they will work slower than pharmaceuticals, thus you will be advised to return for a follow-up appointment in two to four weeks.
Further appointments may be necessary to assess whether your prescription requires adjusting as your health improves.
Herbal remedies most commonly come in the form of tincture (plant constituents extracted in water and alcohol), herbal teas, powders, capsules, creams, oils and ointments.
