Iridology is the examination and analysis of the coloured portion of the eye called the iris.
The fiber structures that make up the iris are actually nerve fibers, and these nerves reflex to every part of the body. By assessing the fibers and colors, we can learn a great deal about our hereditary, weaknesses in organs and the areas of the body that lack balance and need nourishment. Iridology can be an important tool in the determination of factors that may be important in the prevention and treatment of disease to attain optimum health.
Sclerology is the study of the whites of the eyes. The different red lines and markings that appear in the whites also relate to parts of the body. Generally, the iris reveals more long-standing imbalances, while the sclera reveals areas of concern right now.
