1.04                    - Iridology Book Review -
                         By Bryan K. Marcia Ph.D.

Dr. Bernard Jensen's, The Science and Practice of Iridology - Volume II

Dr. Bernard Jensen's Volume II - The Science and Practice of Iridology
offers the most complete reference work available in advanced iridology.
This practical guide first introduces the history and development of iridology
from Ignaz von Peczley discovery to how chart development has evolved at an
international level.

Significant theories such as the imperative four principles of healing and
replacement therapy are discussed in extensive detail. A theoretical background
of the science of iridology with philosophical implications exist through
diversified central hypotheses that give evidence in support of the numerous
observations and research.  Much of this research includes other commonly
accepted diagnostic approaches. e.g.. Barium x-ray showing presence of bowel

Further vital principles emulate iridology as a methodical science that is
based on certain fundamentals. These include inherent strength and weaknesses,
presence of inflammation, constitution, health level, biochemical needs and
response of individual to treatment.

Physiology of the iris signs are represented through the seven zone application
with a descriptive interpretation of the numerous variant markings / signs of
the iris and what particular indications in these markings represents.

Iris anatomy as well as pathology of the eye/brain are described in not only
the iridology context but also within the western medical sciences. This
demonstrates many instances how well iridology is satisfyingly correlated with
what western medical science confirms about the body's neurophysiology and
anatomy of the eye. Abnormalities, injuries, and diseases of the eye are also
important to the iridologist through the significance of understanding a type
of possible eye manifestation and to properly direct an individual to the
appropriate professional.

One of the most important aspects of this book is the observance of the four
stages of tissue activity in relation to the science of iridology. This is
described in such a manner as the ultimate pathway to disease production of
the body, although possible symptoms that are created in the different stages
is not the objective of iridology. The objective is understanding of the
development of inflammation, and then assist and educate the individual in
the reversal of the disease process. The enlightening  instrument of knowledge
to assist this reversal process is depicted in Herings law of cure.

Complete body systems are catalogued in extensive detail with integrating
importance within the five channels of elimination. Complete systems of the
body are shown through invaluable practical evidence as seen through
illustrations of iris photos. This then is identified to the many iris
manifestation conditions as a result of poor tissue integrity or improper
elimination. Case histories are then shown to offer many practical application
viewpoints as compared to iris analysis.

1.05                  Theory & Philosophy of Iridology

Every science remains in significance on a set of theoretical hypotheses that
form its foundation and philosophy which represents its particular context of
theories, observations, experiments and tentative assumptions. Those that have
extensively investigated iridology believe its major hypotheses have already
been verified by experience and by comparison with other diagnostic methods.

The Central Hypotheses of Iridology are:

(1) The iris reveals, through changes in pigment and structure, abnormal
conditions of tissue in the human body; (2) The anterior of the iris reflexly
corresponds in the systematic organization of its topography to the major
tissue structures the body, such that each organ, gland and tissue is
represented in a specific location in the left iris, the right iris, or both.

*** The documentation in support of these two central hypotheses is established
on the work of hundreds of primary health care professionals that have used
iridology successfully as a diagnostic aid with thousands of patients in the
past 100 years. The observations and research of iridologist have been published
in many books and professional journals. The accuracy and reliability of iris
signs as reflex indications of tissue pathology in the body have been confirmed
in many thousands of instances by laboratory tests, X-rays, and other commonly
accepted diagnostic approaches.

Hypothesis #3

Organs and tissues on the left half of the body are reflexly represented in the
left iris, while those of the right half of the body are represented in the
right iris. Organs and tissues lying along the centerline of the body, the
sagittal plane, appear in both irides, as do bilateral organs.

*** Again, this hypothesis is based upon the findings and empirical observations
of hundreds of iridologists. The research of Walter Lang ( Die anatomischen und
physiologischen Grunglagen Der Augendiagnostik ) proposes a set of neural
pathways that would account for the physiological eye changes associated with
both disease states and abnormal tissue conditions. Lang indicates that afferent
autonomic nerve impulses from the various organs and tissues of the body reach
the anterior thalamic nuclei of the diencephalon, which acts as a "file cabinet"
or storage area on all anatomical conditions. Lang further suggests that this
information is transmitted to the hypothalamus, which functions as a central
relay and control station of the brain. Nerve impulses from the hypothalamus
follow pathways via the oculomotor nucleus and the Edinger-Westphal nucleus to
the muscles, stroma and {*filter*} vessels of the irides, were they are assumed to
stimulate topographical tissue changes, corresponding to specific organ and
tissue changes elsewhere in the body. Lang shows that areas of the iris can be
differentiated to correspond to the various organs and tissues by definition
that a single iris nerve fiber (over 28,000) controls only 5 - 10 muscle cells
as compared to 200 - 300 muscle cells in the extremities. This means that
changes reflexed to the iris are highly specific to certain zones. Because
neural system organization is the same in all human beings, the same tissue
areas of the body will always reflex to the same areas of the irides.

Hypothesis #4

The anterior iris, including the anterior epithelium, the stroma, the muscle
layer, the pupillary margin, the autonomic nerve wreath (collarette), and the
scleral-iris margin undergo specific changes corresponding to pathological
changes in specific organs and tissues in the body.

*** Again, this hypothesis is based upon the findings and empirical observations
of hundreds of iridologists. Iridologist have distinguished that the iris
changes due to pathological deterioration of body tissue. This is shown as a
whiteness (acute) in the iris fibers, then an increasing darkness (sub-acute ->
chronic -> degenerative) and depth of iris lesions. Iridologist also note the
changes due to reversal pathology (emergence of healing lines.) in the same iris
lesions after successful treatment. In many cases these findings are confirmed
with other commonly accepted diagnostic procedures. It must be emphasized that
the pathological condition must be adequately severe to be classified by the
standards of western medicine as the classification standards of iridology are
different. The various laboratory tests that are being used to determine the
presence or absence of disease are not totally efficient in the assessment of
subclinical conditions.  Acute and subacute stages of tissue inflammation can
commonly be detected long before other diagnostic methods are capable of finding
any health problems with the patient. In a like manner, when a patient is
declared "well" by the standards of Western medicine, iridology frequently
shows a subacute condition persisting in the individual.

German medical researcher, Walter Lang, has demonstrated that the autonomic
nerve fibers from virtually every gland, organ, and tissue of the body extend
to the thalamus and hypothalamus which monitor and respond to changes of
condition in all anatomical structures. These changes of state, Lang suggests,
are relayed from the thalamus and hypothalamus through the ophthalmic branch
of the trigeminal ganglion to the motorneurons of the iris muscle structure.
Changes in the impulses conducted by these motorneurons may be responsible for
the changes in the muscle structure of the iris, leading to the gradual
separation of iris fibers in the stroma and consequent appearance of the lesions
and other markings familiar to iridologist. Lang also points out that the
organization of the human nervous system is genotypic, and further postulates
that innervation to the iris reliably represents is also genotypic, which
accounts to the fact that the iris reliably represents the same organs, glands,
and other anatomical subdivisions of the body in precisely the same locations in
the irides of all individuals.

Hypothesis #5

Inherent weaknesses, inherent strengths and the degree of nervous system
sensitivity are shown in the iris, respectively, by crypts and separations in
the trabeculae; by closely knit trabeculae; and by parallel, curved cramp rings
concentric with outer perimeter of the iris, all located in the ciliary zone
outside the autonomic nerve wreath.

*** Scientific research has demonstrated that the posterior pigment epithelium
and dilator muscle of the irides are embryologically derived from neurectoderm,
the tissue from which the central nervous system ( Brain and spinal chord )
are also derived. Iridologist find that it is this similarity that reflects in
the iris the genetic inheritance of the individual. It is assumed that the
specific configuration and development of the dilator muscle somehow determine
the radial arrangement and spacing of the vascular arcades (trabeculae) in the
stroma above it. The fact that crypts and separated trabeculae represent
inherent weaknesses in no way conflicts with the fact that the same structures
allow aqueous humor to circulate through the irides.
