Eyes - The windows to our soul
When people are asked what they look at first when they notice an attractive person, several answers come to mind; some say they notice how a person walks or what a person is wearing. Some notice the perfume or cologne they wear, some take notice of the type of body, or the colour and style of hair. However a great proportion of people notice the eyes of a person, for the eyes are often described as the windows to our soul.
When we look at people’s eyes, we can often determine whether people are lying, whether they are angry or whether they are in love. We often can tell whether people are tired or not feeling well because the eyes will appear dull or lack the usual sparkle when people are not in the best of health.
The eye is not only the window to our soul; the eye is a map to our body.
Iridology or iris diagnosis as it is often called is a method used in alternative medicine to analyze the health status by studying colors, marks and signs in the iris, pupil, and sclera of the eye.
Have you ever noticed that there often appear clouds or marks in the iris of your eyes and these often change depending on your state of health or age? Have you noticed that your left eye is different than your right eye? If you have, congratulations, as many people believe that their eye color remains the same all of their lives.
After studying thousands and thousands of irises in great detail over many years, I have had the opportunity to notice these changes in the irises, pupils, and sclera of eyes and have come to the conclusion that what is revealed in the eyes, mirrors the state of health of our entire body.
That is right, the iris of the eye is actually a map where each place represents a different body organ or system.
Digestive and hormonal system. Treat digestive system. This is fundamental when controlling hormonal imbalance. TAKE BITTERS = assist your thyroid through management of digestion.
The effect of pigment is to slow things down, and mixed type people have a tendency towards sluggish digestion. There may be a reduced supply of digestive enzymes from the liver and gallbladder, and pancreas, resulting in discomfort, particularly when eating large, heavy meals or when trying to digest too many food types at once. Bloating, belching and flatulence are common, and also is a tendency to constipation.
There may also be dysbiosis, where the natural lining of the friendly bacteria in the gut has become disturbed, partly through dietary factors, but also because of insufficient gastrointestinal immunity and an inability to prevent less friendly organisms from causing disruption.
Poor digestion may not always exhibit direct symptoms. The failure to break foods down and absorb them sufficiently can lead to metabolic deficiencies, for example of the endocrine system, the pituitary glands, thyroid glands, and adrenal glands, the pancreas, and testes/ovaries
To avoid overtaxing your system, use food combining. Smaller quantities of food, properly digested, supply better energy than larger quantities, which may cause clogging and fermentation.
Eat these in moderation so as not to overload the digestive system
THINGS TO AVOID
Saturated fats. These are found, for example in dairy products. They can be difficult to digest due to liver and gall bladder deficiency, and may cause bloating or nausea, especially if you have gallbladder problems
Take your time over meals, do not overeat, and concentrate on enjoying the food. Eating in a hurry, places stress upon constitutional sensitivities and will result in disturbances.
These are keywords for people of the mixed type, who have a need to become settled in the physical body, to accept it, and find peace with it. The parasympathetic nerves regulate digestion and recreation and relaxation activate these
Massage is very effective for people of the mixed type, helping them feel comfortable in their bodies
After eating, walking, or light recreational exercise is beneficial for digestion. Many yoga postures assist the digestive organs for example inverted postures (shoulder stand, headstand) aid bowel function and relieve constipation: twists and forward bends massage the internal organs; and “nauli” (the contraction and isolation of abdominal muscles) provides strong stimulation of the digestive organs
TAKE BITTER HERBS
These are used to treat hormonal or endocrine disturbances. Without good digestion, the building blocks of hormonal activity are lacking so adequate mineral provision is very important to the hormonal system. Disturbed conditions of the digestive tract can sabotage this. Bitter herbs stimulate the flow of digestive juices from the liver and pancreas and throughout the digestive tract, starting in the mouth. Saliva is the second stage of digestion (the first being in the mind, at the smell, sight, or anticipation of food)
Bitter herbs cool and drain the liver, increasing the flow of bile, and thereby also helping to relieve constipation (bile is a natural laxative)
How did iridology start?
Iridology dates back hundreds of years, but the first iris map developed was in the early 1800’s by a doctor named Ignatz von Pezcely in Hungary. He is known as the father of iridology. In his childhood it is written that he captured an injured owl in his backyard that had a broken leg. He noticed in one of its eyes that there was a black line but when the leg healed, a white mark appeared where the dark mark was. This incident started a life-long interest and study of iridology. Since then, many scientists, doctors, and health professionals around the world have studied iridology. Iridology is taught in countries like America, Australia, Germany, and Russia, where even modern medicine has begun to take notice.
