An iridologist, Dr Gilbert Ezengige, has warned against ignoring any feeling of discomfort in the eyes. It could be a sign of the state of one’s health.
Many Nigerians Ezengige said, were unaware of the usefulness of iridology as an alternative arm of healing. He said Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis or iridiagnosis) is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that patterns, colours, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient’s systemic health. The practitioners are simply referred to as Iridologists. “Iridology is based on the scientific study of the iris — the coloured part of the eye. Like markings on a map, the iris reveals physiological conditions, psychological health risks, challenges and/or strengths of various organs and personality traits.
‘’Through iridology, we can get an understanding of your past, present, and potential future health conditions by assessing the various body systems. Your inherited tendencies compounded by toxic accumulations in various parts of your body are also revealed,” he explained.
Dr Ezengige said this natural medicine practice examines the eyes as mirrors to the body, believing that the iris reflects the condition and function of every organ.
“Iridologists look at the patterns, colours, and other characteristics of the iris to gather information about a patient’s health. Through tried and proven principles, iridologists use the eyes as a wonderful piece of equipment to determine the health of the body,” he stated.
According to Dr Ezengige, Iridology can be a way of detecting signs of developing illness or disease at their earliest stage before they become problems and before clinical indicators or physical symptoms develop. Because the different markings and colours of the iris in the unique zones of the eye correspond to the organs in the body, they can indicate potential health issues.
“Patients may gain an early advantage in the prevention and treatment of illness, before a small health problem becomes worse. Iridology can allow you to take action early and make lifestyle changes to ensure you stay healthy. An examination can help you determine many health markers including your constitutional strengths and weaknesses, nutritional deficiencies, areas of injury, inflammation or degeneration, accumulation of toxins, emotional issues, as well as identifying key risk factors in your body. The unique colour, markings, and structures of your irises can reveal valuable information about your physical, mental, and emotional state of health,” he explained.
And the consultation is simple, painless, and non-invasive as the practitioner uses a small flashlight and magnifying glass to examine the eyes. “Iridology can be a glimpse into the condition of external processes that are otherwise difficult to gauge – i.e. degeneration, congestion, toxicity, and acidity levels. The iris is a window to the brain; with thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, muscle and connective tissue, they reflect the inner workings of the body. Every organ is connected to the iris via the nervous system. Therefore, iridology can be viewed as the starting point of preventive healthcare.
Iridology offers a holistic approach to assessing patient health. Combined with other natural treatments, Iridology can improve your vibrancy and energy levels. After seeing an iridologist you will be able to look at the health of your body with clear eyes,” he noted.
