“Behind the most beautiful eyes, lay secrets deeper and darker than the mysterious sea”
What are the mysteries and secrets that the eyes behold? Why have the eyes been explored, venerated and respected throughout history – Eyes of Horus, The Greek Eye, The Evil Eye, Magic Nam Phi Eye, and others. The most powerful talismans in human history use the eye as a protective symbol. We are fascinated with eyes.
We often say, “the eyes are the windows to the soul” or “you look a bit off kilter today”. If you dig a little deeper into such fables, you will find some truth in all of them. It is said that 75% of our communication is through body language and eye contact. Without even as much as a word from a patient, an optician may be able to detect diabetes during an eye exam.
I invite you to look at the eyes through the form of iridology, which is over 3,000 years old. It is an alternative medicine technique where patterns, colours, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a person’s systemic health because, it records impulses from the whole body, including genetics, past and present trauma, emotional, physical and environmental effects.
So much can be seen in a gentle and non-invasive way, from the gender of an unborn child, to pre-cancerous pointers, the acidity of the stomach, how well the liver is working, pancreatic issues, activity in the ovaries.
It is well known that liver conditions cause jaundice or yellow eyes. It is often the result of a medical condition that causes a yellow-pigmented compound called bilirubin to build up in the blood and becomes visible in the eye itself.
Iridology also encompasses mental and emotional thoughts and emotional patterns that may be conscious or subconscious. There is no hiding, we display our health in many ways throughout our body. This article was written to merely highlight how we can help ourselves by observing changes within our body. Iridology is a natural map of our health , not regularly thought of, but with us all the time. So the next time you look out of sorts, give your eyes a check over in the mirror and ask yourself what is it that has brought this condition on.
As in most cases, diet is a good leveller for restoring healthy eyes. It is important to eat as much raw produce as you can and refrain from meats, which cause toxins in the intestine. There are many videos on you tube demonstrating iridology, to include before and after visuals of a person choosing a vegan diet:
