What is Iridology?

Iridology Diploma Training at School of Natural Medicine USA includes the study of  structure, color and markings on the Iris of the eye to determine inherent strengths and weaknesses in body organs, systems and glands. This valuable information helps assist understanding of inherent pathways towards aging and disease. This knowledge is uniquely suited to Preventative Medicine as it provides an opportunity to create highly personalized cleansing and health building programs that focus on the exact needs of a client. Iridology is also used to increase understanding of how a person’s stresses, lifestyle and habits interact with their unique strengths and weaknesses to create the specific health issues that they are experiencing, and how to reverse that process through the educated use of cleansing and rejuvenation.
