Here Is What Your Iris Says About Your Health
Everyone has heard that the eyes are the windows of the soul, but did you know that the eyes can serve as windows into the health of your body? A science called iridology uses the iris of the eye to detect the health of certain areas and organs in the body.
The Iris Chart
Experts have created charts of the iris showing which areas of the body are reflected in each section of the iris, giving people a “window” into the health of the body. It takes many years to interpret the elliptical markings, striations, wreaths and other markings on the eye correctly, but even people who try for the first time can use an iris chart successfully to interpret some of the markings of the iris.
It helps to use a magnifying glass and a small flashlight so that you can see the iris clearly. When you see a white, grey, brown, or yellow area, check the chart to see what part of the body the marking refers to. That’s how you can interpret the possible health of different parts of the body.
What Color Tells You
When you start diagnosing someone’s iris, you should start first with the color of the eyes and look for any areas of discoloration. You can often find brownish discolorations radiating out from the pupils of blue eyes. These brown areas refer to the intestines. This usually indicates problems in the digestive system and may also be a warning light of weakness in the liver and gall bladder.
Sometimes infants’ eyes may change from blue to brown after they are introduced to milk. This may indicate a lactose intolerance or allergy or may indicate other allergies or difficulty with digestion. Generally speaking, a brown discoloration could mean a problem digesting lactose and saturated fats. When there is a general brown discoloration in the eye, treatment should center on strengthening and stimulating the affected areas.
White is a common color found in the iris. This color indicates inflammation, over-activity, and infection in the corresponding body part. Too much white in the eye also signals mucous in the body. In that case, mucous forming foods should be avoiding, such as wheat, gluten and high carbohydrate carrying foods. When a lot of white is found in the iris, sedating activity is recommended, as well as activity that will reduce inflammation of the affected organs.
When an eye shows the progression from white to grey, it means that an organ or area of the body is falling under increasing ill health, passing from inflammation to general weakness. As the body heals, the colors may reverse from grey to white again.
Major Wreaths and Circles:
Here are some major areas to look for in diagnosing the iris of the eye:
1. The nerve wreath is a bold, white “wreath” positioned about 1/3 the distance between the pupil and the edge of the iris. If the wreath is strong and white, it means you are looking at a good autonomic nervous system. If the wreath is discolored or starts to extend outward toward the periphery of the iris, then ill health should be suspected. The wreath appears closer to the pupil the most active the nervous system behaves and vice versa.

2. Nerve rings are white circles that appear on the periphery of the iris. They point to an overly stimulated nervous system. Circles on the outermost are belonged to the lymphatic and circulatory system.
3. You can tell if you are taking in too much sodium if you can see a white outer ring, which is a bold white ring on the periphery of the iris. If you can see this white ring, reduce your sodium intake and increase your water intake.
Your ability to read the story of the wreaths and circles in the iris will improve with time and experimentation. Don’t hesitate to use your own eyes to learn more about the fascinating science of iridology. Your friends and family are sure to be as fascinated as you are with this amazing field and will love to find out what their eyes have to say about their bodies. Have fun exploring this fascinating map of the body.
