Are you familiar with the practice of iridology and sclerology? While these areas are still relatively unknown among the general population, they are growing in influence and practice across the globe, and particularly in Canada.
First, you should understand some of the fascinating things about your eyes that lead practitioners to note these organs as windows into your health.
- Your eyes heal faster than most other areas of your body; for example, a scratch on your cornea will generally only take about 48 hours to heal.
- About half of your brain is engaged in the process of sight.
- Your eyes never really rest; while it may take time for other parts of your body to reach 100% performance, particularly after you wake up, your eyes are seeing things 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
- The muscles controlling your eyes are the most active muscles in your entire body.
As you can see, eyes are exceptionally important, and certain indicators in your eyes can give you and your health care practitioner clues about what is going on elsewhere in your body.
This particular area focuses on examining the iris of your eye, as well as your pupil. The iris is the colored part of your eye, while the pupil is the dark spot in the exact center.
Different parts of your iris are indicators for various other parts of your body. Through careful examination, a skilled iridologist can determine what areas of your body are suffering from toxicity levels, stress, or blockages. Whenever an imbalance of this nature occurs, a spot or mark can appear on the corresponding area of your eye, which iridologists are trained to look for.
The key to this practice is a carefully researched chart, which maps out the regions of the eye according to its corresponding organs and body systems. While many people attempt to use these charts, only people who are well-trained in this practice can truly read the eyes in order to tell what is wrong.
The sclera is the white part of your eye. It is notable due to its color and the red lines that appear along that portion of the eye, which can indicate the areas of your health that have become compromised. Generally, these conditions are treatable ones, but must first be identified.
A trained sclerologist is able to identify the indicators in your sclera that suggest stress or congestion. This practice also helps to identify the origins of a particular condition from which you may be suffering, including the root cause such as a failing organ or other dysfunction. These indicators can also include infections, mental health issues, health problems stemming out of medications or drugs, and organ disorders.
Many people also use this practice to determine if a particular treatment program or therapy is working. It is a quick way for a trained professional to track your progress toward health when you are undergoing any kind of treatment for an illness or disease.
Finding a Trained Professional
The practices of examining your eyes for help in the identification of an illness or condition is growing in Canada. There are a number of organizations that now serve the needs of people and practitioners in these fields.
The Canadian Institute of Iridology offers comprehensive information about this area of study, including an explanation of what it is and how it works. Many people are also seeking training as iridologists from The Institute of Holistic Nutrition: Toronto School of Nutrition. As the practice gains traction, more and more practitioners are incorporating some form of eye examination into their usual practice to assist in identifying different conditions.

History of Using the Eyes for Diagnosis
Using the eyes to get an indication of what is going on with a person from a health standpoint is hardly a new concept. In fact, it dates back almost three millennia and was a common practice before the emergence of modern medicine.
The practice became more clinical when adopted by Ignatz von Peczely, a doctor from Hungary who began working on ways to adopt sclerology and iris examination into his practice. His interest stemmed from an experience he had in childhood in striving to free an owl from a vine wrapped around its leg, when he noted certain changes in the owl’s eyes while it struggled. The changes continued even as the owl was nursed back to health.
Later, as von Peczely helped his patients, he noted similar changes in their eyes as he treated them, and began documenting these changes in order to develop the first charts used by practitioners today.
Benefits of Identification
This form of health identification has many advantages. First of all, it is non-invasive. Accurate readings from an experienced iridologist do not involve any kind of intrusive procedures, and you can avoid any discomfort, needles, or incisions through these techniques.
Second, the work done by iridologists and sclerologists is painless. Pictures may be used to record progress and differences as you undergo treatment after receiving your evaluation.
Another advantage is that these forms of identification allow for early detection. Often, you can tell what is going on in your body via your eyes far earlier than any other means. This allows you to take preventative measures and potentially avoid certain health problems altogether, before they emerge as symptoms throughout the rest of your body.
