What is Iridology?

Iridology is a safe, painless, non-intrusive technique that lets you see into your own body, organ by organ, system by system.  How?

The eyes may be a window to the soul, but the soul has to live in a physical body.

Iridologists fine-tune this idea by identifying and unfolding the corresponding signs in the iris that advertise the body's condition. The stunning parallels confirm this investigative technique as the functional equivalent of a whole-body MRI or CAT scan. While many use Iridology as a somewhat useful 'side-tool', there is a strong need for serious, focused application of anatomy, physiology and medicine, as well as a healthy investigation and awareness of alternative modalities. Iridology is especially valuable in assessing a person's systemic health.

An Iridologist makes calculated judgments identifying patterns, spots, colors and many other characteristics of the iris, all of them in fact.  The composite picture that emerges gives great insight as to the condition of the body's tissues as they work together systemically, and as they stand alone.  From there, bodily ailments that appear in weak and strong areas can be readily identified.  A good Iridologist can then take this a step further and offer advice on how you can enable your body to tackle those ailments.  At the NY Center for Iridology practice includes not only Clinical Iridology but a variety of modalities including naturopathy, herbology, phytotherapy, and medical herbology.

Unique Strengths

Used by mainstream medical practitioners in Europe and around the world, Iridology is an alternative/complementary practice in the United States. Its two strengths are:

  1. Ability to see all body systems and organs at once. This includes circulatory, gastro-intestinal, glandular, skeletal, neurological, muscular and uro-genital systems at a glance. Thus, related factors and underlying causative factors can often be identified in a single non-intrusive session ... without multiple tests.
     

  2. Advance Prognostics. Iridology excels at early-onset detection in pre-clinical stages. Instead of waiting for chronic or degenerative disease manifestations, typically eight to fifteen years in the making, an iridology scan detects conditions that lead to disease, often years before they are medically detected. This means that instead of calling on heroic measures to deal with a chronic condition, a targeted specific (NYCI's unique intervention mode) can often restore homeostasis, or even prevent your condition from advancing to a critical stage.

Targeted Specifics

Targeted Specifics is the name for NYCI's own brand of therapeutic intervention. A targeted specific is just what it says -- a specific substance or practice known to target a particular organ or system, enabling homeostasis (Hippocrates' ancient Greek term for balance) to be restored for vibrant health.

For example, the Hawthorn berry is a specific herb that targets the heart.  This potassium-rich phytonutrient is used all over the world for building (or rebuilding) strong tissue in the heart. Another example of a targeted specific is pulsed chromatic light, painlessly directed at acupuncture points. That 'constantly-wired' feeling associated with Sympathic Dominance, can often be quickly calmed and normalized by sending chromatic light pulses directly to receptors linked to the Autonomic Nervous System.

Every organ and system in the body responds to one or more specific triggers. Knowing which to use for each is the emerging domain of Targeted Specifics. With initial conditions and the targeted specific(s) it seeks, the body relaxes into normalcy and heals itself.
