When Iridology originated back in Biblical times,
it was thought that a healthy eye indicated a healthy body

Iridology is an extremely powerful naturopathic diagnostic tool. Diagnosis from the iris of the eye is an invaluable and fascinating technique for both immediate self-daignosis and patient diagnosis in any alternative medicine approach, but especially in holistic nutritional medicine.

When you know how to read the sign language of the iris you will be able to make a naturopathic and vitalistic diagnosis of energy and toxin levels in any location of the body. Such diagnosis proves to be of immeasurable help in focusing and monitoring of treatment. Iridology is entirely non-invasive and time and time again proves to be uncannily accurate.
