Iridology & Sclerology

The eye is the window to the soul... it is often said. Modern day science has proven that statement over and over with the art of Iridology and Sclerology.


Iridology is the analysis of the colour and structure of the eye and sclerology is the interpretation of the red lines in the white of the eye.

Sclerology? What on earth is that?

The word sclerology comes from ("sclera"), the hard, firm, fibrous outer coat of the eye, known as the white of the eye, and ("ology") study.
Sclerology is the interpretation of the red lines, colourations and markings in the white of the eye. This art is at least 1 000 years old and the ancient Chinese practiced sclerology hand in hand with Iridology.

The Anatomy of the sclera in short:

The sclera has little blood supply or nutrient perfusion demand due to its relatively low metabolic need. The choroid layer is loosely attached to the inner lining of the sclera and provides it with blood and nutrients. In the back of the eye, the sclera becomes the sheath that covers the optic nerve. It continues to the dura mater of the brain in one continuous flow.


The sclera can therefore easily be considered and extension of the brain. Because of this very direct connection with the brain, we can understand how the sclera can represent all the various body parts, at least at the level of nerves and nervous energy. The body has different `maps`, such as seen in reflexology, tongue diagnosis, facial diagnosis, auricular therapy etc.


Modern Application of sclerology.
Sclerology is the perfect companion for Iridology, which is the analysis of the colour and structure of the iris. The very brown eye (Haematogenic) is especially difficult to interpret with iridology alone.


Sclerology gives an astonishing amount of information with regard to current client pathology. It also verifies and enhances data from iridology and other evaluation techniques such as reflexology, kinesiology, acupuncture, and meridians. In my opinion, one should always have a second or even a third modality to confirm a diagnosis.


Sclerology shows stress, congestion, imbalance, or energy blockage (disease) in an organ or system in the body. If the body chemistry is imbalanced or deficient in basic nutrition such as amino acids, enzymes or toxic from parasites, heavy metals, chemicals, radiation, metabolic waste products, the sclera will register the information via the affected body systems. If the emotions are a cause of stress (grief, resentment, anger, guilt) the sclera will show the effect of the negative state of being in the tissues affected by the altered metabolism. We call it "negative reactive emotion."


Sclerology can also warn the patient of potential pathology BEFORE it manifests as symptoms. (6-24 months)
It shows its signs in natural daylight without the need for tools and expensive equipment.
It demonstrates both inherited and developed health dispositions.
It reveals pathology that is past, present, and potential.
