A CNM Professional Course in Iridology – analysis of the eye’s coloured iris – This course gives you the opportunity as a Naturopathic Practitioner to gain a new level of diagnostic insight into the health and vitality of your clients.

By helping to reveal a person’s underlying constitution, information displayed in the iris can suggest especially useful therapies to complement your specialism.

About the course

Iridology is the study of the “iris”, the exposed nerve endings which make up the coloured part to the eye. The colours and the many structural variations which can be viewed in each iris, are the genetically determined evidence of your uniqueness. You will learn how to examine and analyse the iris in order to interpret signs that may indicate the client’s general constitution and their genetic susceptibility to particular conditions, and whether their organs and tissues are inflamed, toxic or under stress.

Iridology is a useful tool to the practitioner and student practitioner wishing to provide an individualised service to their clients by informing them of their innate strengths and weaknesses, empowering them to work within those limits.

About the Course

What is Iridology?

iStock_000005843344SmallThe iris of the eye is comprised of many thousands of individual fibres, amongst which are located nerve endings linked directly to the brain. In iridology, every part of the body that is supplied with nerves has its corresponding reflex area on the iris of the eye, allowing us to assess the organs and tissues in that sector. Iris signs can be interpreted by the trained iridologist to provide indications as to the patient’s general constitution and their genetic susceptibility to particular conditions.

Iridology is a useful tool to the practitioner wishing to provide a truly personalised and holistic service to their patients. By helping to reveal a person’s underlying constitution, information displayed in the iris can suggest especially useful therapies, or help to avoid inappropriate treatments that may be ideal for another patient with the same symptoms but a different constitution. Not only that, but iridology can be a vital tool for differential diagnosis: if a patient has an issue with their skin, for example, iridology can help to pinpoint whether it originates from a digestive problem, liver weakness or stress. The same applies to symptoms such as headache, generalized pain, and sleep problems. An iridologist is a facilitator of a patient’s journey toward perfect health, who can inform them of their innate strengths and weaknesses and empower them to work within those limits.

Iridology is used as part of the diagnostic repertoire that can complement both natural and orthodox medicine. Iridology is safe, gentle, and non-invasive, requiring none of the inconveniences of, say, undressing or drinking unpleasant fluid.

A CNM Professional course in Iridology – analysis of the eye’s coloured iris – could throw open the curtains to a new level of diagnostic insight for you and your patients.
