About Iridology

Iridology is a non-invasive tool used to analyse the structure of iris fibres and can be used to determine potential tissue weakness that may result from genetic or other factors.   It can identify an individual's constitution and levels of inflammation in the body

Iridology is an ancient art of iris analysis that dates back to ancient Egypt where iris charts were reported to have been found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. These are now thought to be housed in the Vatican museum in Harvard University.

In the 19th century, one of the earliest documented information about iridology was that of a Hungarian doctor called Ignatz Von Peczely, who as a child accidently broke the leg of an owl. He noticed a mark appear in the owl's iris, which changed over time as the owl recovered.  During his medical career, Von Peczely studied the irises of his patients and recorded his research.  

American research involved the work of Dr Henry Edward Lane and Dr Henry Lindlahr.   Dr Lindlahr considered that the physical body should be viewed as part of a much greater whole and encompassed the mental, physical and emotional body.   He considered that iris analysis was of great importance and interest because it supplied information that could not be provided in any other way.

Bernard Jenson was a student of Dr Lindlahr who continued with many years of research into iris analysis and in the 1950s developed a comprehensive iris chart, which has been updated and used by many practitioners today.  

The science and practice of iridology is still evolving and through continuous research, modern equipment and correlations between iridologists worldwide, iridology provides a valuable contribution to health science.
