After studying with Dr. Raymond Christopher, in the USA, Farida
moved to Cambridge, England, where her practice flourished due
to her unique three hour combined consultations and treatment sessions.
A unique combination of in-depth case taking, herbal foot baths,
poultices, reflexology, iridology analysis, individually mixed
herbal formulas and shiatsu, polarity and massage treatments created
in depth-healing. As satisfied clients recommend others, and a
successful practice was assured.
Invited to join a medical practice in Kensington
by Dr. Shirley Bond, M.D., Farida traveled to London
every week for several years to work with women suffering
from reproductive diseases and infertility. "I
never knew such tissue changes were possible," reported
Dr. Bond. This
experience provided the foundation of Farida's books, Creative
Menopause and Herbs of Grace.
During this time she also received many referrals
from the Gerson Cancer Clinic and the Bristol Cancer
Center, and worked with clients referred by medical
doctors, with astounding documented results.
Farida has written numerous books on Iridology which can be viewed here
IRIDOLOGY & NATURAL MEDICINE STUDY MATERIALS
The Iridology course is a synthesis of a complete system
of natural medicine that combines individual herbal formulas, herbal
treatments, naturopathy treatments, nutrition, purification, regeneration,
flower essences, energy balancing and life counseling. Iridology
is used to determine the inner ecology and guide an individual
treatment program to
restore balanced health.
Our study program provides students with a strong
foundation that complements their life experience
and supports future studies. The assignments are
creative research projects that inspire each student
to develop a holistic approach to guiding clients
toward health and
healing. This approach has proven successful for over 25 years
by hundreds of students, graduates and clients all over the world.
IRIDOLOGY TRAININGS & IRIS MANDALAS
An important part of our Iridology Trainings are the sharing of each student¹s iridology analysis of their constitutional inner ecology and individualized treatment plans that allow true and lasting healing, along with their testimonials. Herbal formulas and treatments are integrated during their mentored Self Healing Module. We support students to become independently healthy as they learn to do the same for others! This is the essence of integrity the graduate as a living example of the truth of the teachings and the proof of their efforts.
After the symbolic language of the interior world
is been introduced with slides and transparences,
each student receives an iris analysis from their
color iris slides and a personal healing program.
Students also learn from each other's readings. Each
student creates their iris Mandala made from felt
cloth, photos, and other materials to facilitate
elevate learning to joyful enthusiasm.
The teaching approach is multi-dimensional. Iridology
slides, images, instruction, kinesthetic movement
to musical rhythms, and artistic projects insure
that the information is received by all learning
modalities of sound, sight and touch - and it is
Students complement study materials with attendance at Iridology Trainings
Level I and Level II. Upon completion of the course the student receives a
Certificate. A Master Iridologist diploma is awarded after attendance at
required training, completion of study material assignments, case histories
and the Self Healing Module.
Each student experiences the power of personal healing with herbs,
nutrition and naturopathy treatments to embody the principles
of purification, regeneration and transformation. We sincerely
believe the best practitioner is a living example of the teaching
able to offer a wealth of personal experience and truthful inspiration
to clients to help them build new levels
of health and well being.
We are a spiritually based school in that we support
each student’s creative emergence to achieve
their potential, align harmoniously with their life
purpose and become a radiant living example of health,
creativity and abundance. Quality professional skills
are achieved along with a positive evolution of consciousness
as the student embodies the living energies of the
healer and teacher during their studies.
