Alternative medicine has really taken off in the United States. Over 30% of adults visit alternative medicine practitioners to focus and improve their wellness. Doctors too are embracing alternative therapies by incorporating them into treatment plans.
Alternative medicine is based on ancient practices that have worked for hundreds of years. There are many areas of alternative medicine, Iridology and Sclerology being emerging therapies.
What is Iridology?
Iridology is the study of the iris (the colored part of the eye). Major nerves of the body come up to the brain extend out and reflect in the iris. The color of your eyes and its fiber structure indicate the state of your health. Nerve feedback from the whole body is reflected through your Iris.
Experts in the field of Iridology use this information to inform patients about the weaknesses they have, how they can prevent the onset of diseases, and how they can improve their overall health.
Any changes in health reflect in the iris gradually, which means it can help identify inherited tendencies and health conditions too.
What is Sclerology?
Sclerology is the study of the white part of the eye. It also takes into accounts the blood vessels and other visible markings on the eye. The sclera is an extension of the dura mater (a thick membrane that consists of irregular connective tissue). Unlike the iris that’s a long term recorder, the sclera stores short-term information. The study of the sclera reveals more acute problems occurring in the body, for e.g. an active virus in the body.
What is an Iridologist looking for?
When you go in for your appointment with a professional, they examine your eyes closely. They make use of a magnifying tool and light to carefully notice every marking on your iris. Pictures are sometimes taken with a camera for a better reading. The only discomfort you feel is light sensitivity when the pictures are being taken.
An iridologist won’t diagnose illnesses like Crohn’s disease or cancer, instead, they try to figure out where you have imbalances in the body and what can be don’t to prevent and improve it. They understand your body through the iris so that you can find the best diet and lifestyle for you. Things an iridologist can detect are: your cholesterol, liver blood deficiency, skin concerns, cholesterol, clogged sinuses, etc.
What is a sclerologist looking for?
A sclerologist reads the lines and marks on the sclera to identify any imbalances you have. They can detect stress in the body, parasite infections, organ health, imbalances caused by medication, etc.
