The opening paragraph of the Internationally acclaimed book “Iridology—A Focused Study, by Carol   Magda,   ND   (USA)“    says   “all   living   beings   look   to   the   eyes   as   signposts        of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual relative energy levels. Mankind looks into each others’ eyes in an attempt to understand more fully and deeply their feelings, reactions, and behaviours. To understand how this is possible is to understand that the eyes reflect the ‘relational’ energy of the body. Relative health based on the amount of ‘relational’ energy can also be readily determined. “- As part of its ongoing commitment to the evolution of Iridology, the International Academy was the publishing sponsor of this highly encompassing book.

Iridology is the study of the colour, pigmentation and the colour structure of the iris of the eye. This is made possible by the connection between the brain and the optic nerve, which is known as the neuro-optic reflex. Iridology is the art and science of revealing potential pathological, structural, functional and emotional imbalances in the human body due to inherited strengths and insufficiencies of body systems. Through the concepts and measurements of density, shading, and clarity, relative nerve energy flow is estimated and potential strengths and insufficiencies in relation to genetics, can be interpreted.

As Dr. Bernard Jensen and Dr. Donald Bodeen stated in their book “Visions of Health” the brain knows what is going on in all parts of the body and the eye is the only brain tissue which can be seen without surgical methods. The eye is a direct outgrowth of the brain as the cells that are  to develop into the eyes bud out from the brain, bringing with them a neurological link: the optic nerve, which is a large bundle of many nerves (estimated to be 500,000) that is connected to the brain. Through these nerve connections, the iris can help to reveal the relative site of irritation, injury or degeneration of the body’s tissues and organs, as well as, the toxic accumulation in the tissues.

This comprehensive 11 credit certificate program is designed to provide the graduate with a competent knowledge to practice as an ‘Iridology Professional’. The program presents a thorough understanding of the human body and the inter-action of the practice of Iridology on the individual, within a wholistic perspective.

It also provides a platform of how to use Iridology techniques in support of other health disciplines, such as nutrition. It is viewed that Iridology is an essential modality for nutrition counselors that can be used to support the client’s overall healthcare program, as he/she works towards restoring and maintaining their personal health balance.

Note: Textbook purchase “Iridology-a Focused Study” is required to take this certificate program. Class handouts and notes will support the student’s learning process.
