 Iridology FAQ 3/4 - irisfaq3.txt [1/1]

1.07                 AN EDUCATIONAL  VIEW  OF  IRIDOLOGY

The basic theme of this FAQ is in relation to the educational aspect of
teaching iridology to the individual in a clear, concise, and interesting manner.
It seems now, more than ever, that people do not know where obtain satisfactory
answers concerning matters related to their health problems. I firmly believe
that iridology is a science and art that can be utilized in that form of
education, by informing that person that there is a lifestyle to help us
maintain good health.  It is our responsibility as iridologists to educate
people so they will seek the better way of life and prevention of disease. An
informed public will make more responsible decisions with respect to health,
resulting in an improved quality of life and enabling them to remain as
functional and productive members of society.

Our greatest challenge as iridologist is to educate the public. We must raise
the awareness of the public in order to find patients interested in restoring
their health.  Our method of analysis supports this work, and all the other
healing arts assist it and add to it.  This method of analysis must be made
clear, at every opportunity, that it is not a medical examination or a
diagnoses of disease.  We must inform the patient on the meaning of tissue
integrity, and by no means, put any fear or worry in the subject's mind.  We
must be sensible, tactful, and wise in what we say to an individual, not only
by what we say, but also how we say it.  That is why the language of
"integrity" is so important in conjunction with the analysis that we work with.

1.08        Four Stages of Tissue Activity as Observed Through the Iris

Organs and systems are rated according to the four different stages tissue

Stage (1) ACUTE. The first stage may be represented by pain and discomfort.
Tissues at this stage utilize biochemicals at a faster rate, thus eventually
wearing it out.
(This first stage is the beginning of all dis-ease and commonly detected in

Stage (2) NORMAL. This stage is very uncommon to find in a individual, due to
the fact that it is difficult to analyze or find a truly "NORMAL" constitution.
Children seem to come closer to being checked in this area, although a tissue
that is rated a 3 or 4 is considered close to being a good functioning tissue.

Stages (3 -- 6) SUB ACUTE. This stage in which tissue conditions are usually
sub-clinical, having little or no pain. It is in this stage where tissue is
prone to toxic absorptiom due to a lower metabolic response. (Occurs usually
10 - 20 years of age)

Stages (7 - 8) CHRONIC. This stage is associated with a condition that is of
longer standing. In this stage tissue innervation is very low, with a decrease
of metabolic function. Toxins are not eliminated properly, thus inviting a
disease environment. 80% of all disease is found in this stage. (Occurs
usually around 20 years of age and up to any age)

Stages (9 - 10) DEGENERATIVE. The stage in which tissue integrity is at its
lowest level of metabolic response. This condition is most serious, as well
as the most difficult to reverse. (Can occur at any age)

1.09                          Iridology & Constitution

Constitution gives us a picture of the overall strength in the body. We rate
this on 1 being the best, 5 being average and 10 being very poor.

People with a strong constitution tend not to have as many illnesses, and when
they do, they seem to recover quite quickly. These are the type of people that
usually grow up abusing their health because they can get away with it without
no ill consequences. They also tend to be less receptive to someone with a
weaker constitution thus showing little consideration to their needs. It is
good to note that someone with a very good constitution can only burn their
candle for so long!

Those with a weaker constitution have a greater amount of inherent weaknesses
in their body. They need to take extra care of their body more than someone
with an inherited strong constitution to stay well. They are more sensitive
to foods, environment, stress and tend to take longer to recover from illnesses
that occur more frequently than someone with a strong constitution.

1.10                              IRIS COLOR

The human iris can be seen in a number of various colors, although there are
only two basic iris colors, blue and brown.

It seems more than ever, through so much inter-marriage of races in the world
that we are likely to see a genetic mix of colors. There are many instances
where drug and toxic settlements in the body, can make the Iris color appear
different from it's basic pre{*filter*} color.

It seems that people with a brown eye have a family history that goes back to
the more southern climates, while blue eyes have a history of a family
background in the northern climates.

It is been noted that brown eyed people seem more subject too glandular and
{*filter*} related disorders while blue eyes seem to be subject too lymphatic,
catarrhal and acidic disorders.

1.11                     ELIMINATION ORGANS TO CONSIDER

The major elimination organs are of utmost importance, therefore we must give
first consideration in learning more about their functions. The Iridologist
finds that the greatest amounts of tissue weaknesses in the body are primarily
found in the elimination organs. It is through that importance that an
iridologist will go into some detail on specific elimination organs and

1.12                         THE BRAIN & IRIDOLOGY

The brain is considered to be the most important organ in our body. Of all the
areas that we are covering in Neuro-optic analysis, least is known about the
specific brain areas and much research has yet to be done, although, Iridology
is in the pioneering stage and looks very encouraging.

When we study the eyes, we study the brain, as the eyes are extensions of the
brain. The developing eyes of the human embryo first appear on the 22-day as
grooves in the forebrain wall. The eyes are first attached to the brain by the
optic stalk in which becomes the optic nerve as the eyes continue to grow. The
eyes are made of brain tissue and retain the complex sensitivity characteristics
of this highly evolved tissue. This is why the eyes are so revealing and it is
through this intimate development upon which iridology is founded. One of the
most important structures of the brain are the thalamus and hypothalamus. These
are nerve relay centers which monitor tissue conditions in all parts of the body
and forward that information via neural pathways to the irides.
