Iris Diagnosis and Fasting

The iris of our eyes is the only place in the body where we can see directly into the soft tissue and thereby gain an insight into the general state of the basic system of our body.

At the beginning of life, all newborns have a pure, dark-blue iris, which at that point is still totally unclouded by any pigment deposits - a situation which will change more and more during the course of their life. With the passing of the years, various pigments and metabolic waste products deposit themselves layer for layer in the eye, giving it its characteristic structure and uniqueness.

In this respect, the iris becomes the only place in the body where we can get information about the sequence that it follows in a mesenchyme detoxification, and in fact, following early disappointing experiences with bioelectrical function diagnostics, pioneers of electro-acupuncture such as Prof. Herget from Gießen and Dr. Schimmel have now acquired expertise in iris diagnosis in order to ensure success in this domain after all. They had noticed that, using their nail endpoint diagnosis, they could indeed identify all waste products and toxins that the particular organism in question had not yet successfully addressed, but it had also become clear that they could not simply flush these out in any order they pleased. Only after they were able to determine the appropriate sequence of the various deposits by looking at the layering in the iris and only after they began detoxifying using nosodes in the corresponding reverse order were they able to finally achieve the expected success and also maintain this in the long term - a process which could also be effectively tracked by “keeping an eye” on the eye.

In a similar way, the detoxification processes during longer periods of fasting which take place over several weeks can also be impressively tracked in the iris of both eyes. Many of those who fast are even able to notice this purification process of the eyes with the naked eye. 


In this respect, in addition to the topographic assignment of organ systems to different parts of the iris, eye diagnosis thus takes on further significance for complementary medicine, although for iridologists this is merely a by-product of their work.
