I bet very few of you have ever heard of this, and that’s why I picked it for today’s topic. I know you’ve heard that your eyes are the windows to your soul, but did you know that they are also a roadmap to your body’s health?
That’s right. Looking at the iris of the eye (colored part) can tell a trained iridologist the exact nature of the health of your body. Unbelievably, all of the organs in your body have a placement in the iris of your eyes.
Years ago, I took a class on this given by the owner of a health food and herb store. He was a homeopathic practitioner. A group of about 30 of us got together to learn about this, originally developed by Dr. Bernard Jensen. We had photos of our eyes taken before class and were able to analyze each others eyes as part of the class. Our instructor used a slide projector to show the photos to the class.

My husband and I tried out our newfound skills on some friends after the class. They were stunned we could tell them about some of their health issues, and even previous surgeries they had had.
It was exciting to participate in this journey of self-discovery. So many ancient arts are not really in practice today. We can all learn so much from things we never hear about in the modern age. It makes me wonder how knowledge like this seemed to fall to the wayside somewhere along the way.
I hope all of you are able to take away something from this post, if not only just to get your curiosity up enough to make you want to learn more.
