About this course

The Science of the Iris

Iridology is the study of the features and markings of the iris, which examines the attributes and characteristics of the iris. These include iris colour, structure and textures of the tiny iris fibres.

Iridology is a safe and non-invasive tool used by therapists to assess their clients’ state of health. Iris analysis is a fascinating technique that looks at not only the present state of health but also genetic pre-dispositions to certain conditions.

Iridology is a preventative health analysis, used by nutritionalists, naturopaths, homeopaths, herbalists and manual, hands on therapists to assess clients’ health, which can enable people to make conscious choices about their lifestyles, health and well-being.

“The philosophy behind Iridology is to treat the client rather than treating a disease by identifying weaknesses and imbalances in the body that may be past or present or may lead to health problems in the future.” - Dr Bernhard Jensen.
