Alkimos clinic. This month as seen a massive increase in services we can offer, one is the new iridology machine which leads me to this week’s feature service.
The images from the iridology camera are fantastic for true colour images and perfect exposure and better iris fibre definition.
So, let me tell you a little about iridology and how it can support you as you improve your health. Iridology is the practice of studying the iris of the eye – such as patterns and colours – to determine information about your health.
Digestive issues. Problems with the digestive system, particularly the stomach and intestines, can present themselves via discolourations around the pupil.
Lymphatic health. Problems in the lymph system can usually be identified at certain junctures depending on their interaction with the lung and heart. As the system depends on lung function for the removal of toxins, this can, in turn, affect the respiratory system.
High cholesterol. A white ring circling the iris can be indicative of both high cholesterol and which can be symptomatic of a poor diet.
Hypertension. The presence of a ring around the iris can be indicative of high blood pressure evidenced by a slow metabolism. Hypertension can lead to a host of problems if not caught early and an experienced iridologist can help to identify it.
Hyperthyroidism. An overactive thyroid can frequently be deduced by eyes that appear to bulge slightly, something that we can detect and compare to a chart to identify related issues. This condition can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, weight loss and trouble sleeping.
Liver damage. Identify liver damage from brown spots in the liver section of the iris. This can sometimes present symptomatically as emotional issues such as depression, and if caught at an early stage a treatment regimen can in many cases prevent progression and further damage to this vital organ.
Gallbladder issues. By examining the eye for signs of jaundice – a yellowing of the white of the eye – we can potentially detect gallbladder and bile duct issues which can ultimately affect liver function.
Inflammation. As the iris is broken down into different sections corresponding to particular body zones, we identify certain indicators of inflammation in those specific areas. Inflammation can be a precursor to many serious disorders, so it is important that they are identified early.
Weakened immune system. When white markings are present in the iris, we may interpret this as a weakened immune system. Immune-boosting regimens can be recommended as a way of strengthening the system so that the patient is not susceptible to illness
Iridology is a non-invasive way of reading signals from the body to indicate where health concerns may lie.
