What are Iridology and Sclerology?

Iridology is the study of the iris of the eye and sclerology is the study of the whites of the eye. These include the study of the texture as well as the color or the iris, the shape of the pupil and the sclera.

The density of the iris fibre equals the ability the person has to resist disease. People who have weak fibre structures in their irises have more difficultly resisting disease and they usually take longer to heal. People who have tightly woven iris fibres have a potentially stronger ability to resist disease and are considered to have “good constitution”. Each part of the eye is linked to a part of the body (eg: lungs, lymphatic system, bowel, etc.). An iridologist looks for areas where the fibres are weak or strong, to identify their relationship to the body.

The Chinese say the eyes are the “windows to the soul”, and that there are only two true eye colors, and every other color portrays potential problems. The color of the iris and the color of the markings on the eye display certain deficiencies in the body.

Blue eyed people are more prone to potential weaknesses in the lymphatic system. Dark brown eyed people are more prone to blood abnormalities. Green eyed people are more prone to infection. People with mixed or biliary colored eyes are generally prone to liver and gall bladder insufficiencies and digestive disturbances. The transversals (blood vessel markings on the whites of the eyes) represent congestion, inflammation or obstruction to the particular organ or gland they point to.
