Iridology—Your Eyes as the Mirrors of Your Health?
The Yahoo Health article presents a couple of interesting link between the eyes and the overall health. There is even a study in regard to this topic, which used an alternative technique called Iridology, a study of the iris of the eye. Although this study dates from the mid 17th century, mainstream medicine hasn’t accepted it yet.
According to this technique, various characteristics of the iris zone, such as colors and patterns, tell a lot about the systemic health. This is done with the help of examination of the iris and matching it to iris charts. These charts allow the iridologist identify systems and organs in the body which may be inflamed.
In case you decide to give this technique a try, make sure you visit a licensed medical practitioner as iridologists are not obliged to have license.
