The study of the eye ― by studying the Iris, Sclera and Pupil – to analyze imbalances in the body.
Iridology is an ancient method and was mentioned among other things by Hippocrates (father of medicine). The modern iridology has, however, its creator in the Hungarian physician Ignatz von Peczely, who published his findings in 1881. He studied the eyes of patients who had been injured, then again after surgery and noted changes in the iris. Based on this, he developed a method by using the signs in the iris to analyse imbalances and malfunctions in the body. In the turn of that century the Swedish homeopath Nils Liljeqvist developed the method further.
When I study the eye, I use a directional light and a magnifying glass as a tool. Each organ has a predetermined position, the right half of the body in the right eye and the left half of the body in the left eye, the head in the upper part and the legs in the lower part of the iris. I also investigate the shape of the pupil and the position of the iris, its size and mobility.
The change in the iris generated from each organ has a nerve which is connected to the eye via the long ciliary nerves.
These changes of varying colour and shape are all of different importance when setting an analysis.
