The founder of modern Iridology was a Hungarian physician. His interest had been kindled when he was a boy. A pet owl was injured and sustained a broken leg. Von Peczely noticed a black line form in its iris. As he nursed the bird he noticed that the line became smaller and smaller, until when the leg was healed, the black line disappeared.
The path was opened and several physicians and healers began adding to the literature. The maps of the iris became more sophisticated. Iridologists have come up with several theories about the mechanism by which the fibre pattern of the iris can change to reflect the state of the internal body.
The first thing to do when looking at an Iris is to assess the background pattern. This is crucially important, since we are actually assessing the constitutional type of the individual.
The picture reflected in the iris comes from some part of the body by remote control. When we see these markings from disease, we may consider that the iris is a screen and that a stage show is going on in one of the body organs or tissues.
The iris 'screen' will register trouble in the body whether it be caused by drug poisoning, by settlements of acid or toxic waste which the body has been unable to eliminate through catabolic processes, or by nerve depletion from continual worry, excitement and non-eliminated body wastes.
Where the body must continually struggle against foreign substances, it becomes enervated and disease is bound to result. This activity is always shown in the iris.
If a person is continually worried about something, it is going to irritate and affect his nervous system, and the resulting nerve degeneration will also show in the iris of the eye.
When we deal with the vibration of different diseases and the discoloration of the iris from drug deposits and bad living habits, we are dealing with electrons and ions. Much of our healing today is done by re-establishing normal vibratory rates in the body - through electrical energy, radionic treatment, and the vibration of our voice through colour, as well as through laboratory methods, electrical equipment such as short wave and diathermy, food and physiotherapy.
The old saying, 'the eyes are the windows of the soul', takes on new meaning in this age of vibratory knowledge. Electronics is coming into its own in the healing art and is being used to detect and to treat different diseases through vibratory methods.
Disease comes into existence through abnormal vibrations. Every disease has its own symptoms, its own calling, its own craving, its own appetite. These conditions are expressed in the form of vibratory rates. In working with vibratory action, we increase the vital energy of the body by using health-building methods.
The activity for health will overcome the activity of disease. If the factors which are breaking down the vital health of the body are being nurtured, you can readily see without any trouble how chronic disease can be developed. To break down chronic disease, starve the disease; it must not have a chance to exist. Build vital energy and healthy vibratory activities into the body and eventually health will be the result.
