Iridology is the practice of examining the iris of the eye for markings and discolorations in order to determine possible health problems they might indicate. Different sectors of the iris correspond to different areas of the body. Different markings indicate possible vulnerabilities in those areas.
Iridology isn't used to diagnose specific diseases or conditions, rather, it's used to indicate potential problems in all areas of the body, including the heart, lungs, spleen, spine and kidneys.
Iridology is used in clinical naturopathic practice by some of our practitioners as an adjunct to other assessment methods. It provides the practitioner with another perspective of how the body is functioning and may be used in conjunction with the patient’s history and other forms of testing to determine the appropriate choice of treatment.
