In 1950, a chiropractor from America named Bernard Jensen developed a method by which the colour of the iris was used to indicate the presence of different toxins. Iridology was born. However, iridology, or the study of disease using the colour of the iris and certain colour and thickness of lines across the eyeball originated in Europe, when a physician from Hungary and a Swedish pastor both noticed iris markings in connection with disease. The physician- accidentally injured an owl as a child, breaking its leg. While nursing the owl back to health, the young child noticed that the thick black mark that appeared in the owl’s eye after the injury began to lessen as the owl healed. He never forgot it, and as an adult practicing his profession, he recoded that patients with bone fractures experienced the same black mark across the iris. The Swedish pastor was exposed to malaria as a young man and while receiving the treatment of quinine and iodine noticed that his blue eyes began to grow darker as the drugs built up in his system. He grew up to study homeopathic medicine and recorded similar reactions in clients who came to him for detoxification purposes. It has been said that the eyes are the mirror to the soul. It is also believed that they were also the mirror to the body specifically for the purpose of determining various ailments. There is always a change in the colour of the eye of patients coming down with diseases. Practitioners of iridology use it to help patients as a preventative measure to understand basic health problems in order to refer them to specialists if needed. The belief is that if a disease is detected in the very early stages it can be prevented from spreading further. The coloured part of the eye, the iris is studied for these markings and colour changes by isolating the iris and taking pictures of it with a very strong lens. The process takes about an hour and is painless. The photos are then blown up and gone over with a magnifying glass by the iridologist and used to determine and identify potential ailments. Under this theory, the colour changes in the eyes at the very start of a degenerative disease are used by the body to indicate an upcoming health problem, and to warn the body to seek preventative measures. Even conventional physicians check the eyes for signs of sickness.
