Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for June 13, 2006


This is the iris for my left eye. I have those deep grooves again on the top of the iris and again, it’s the area of the cerebrum. I have some distinct marks on the bottom but I can’t figure out from the chart what it means… it’s in the area of the sigmoid which from the chart, is a part of the lower colon.

But I’ve recently had a colonoscopy and nothing was found. If there was a problem with the sigmoid, they would’ve found something. That is…if I’m reading it properly…

This is the iris for my right eye. I compare it to the chart and the first thing I look at is the loop groove at the bottom. On the chart it matches an area for the appendix. I have some deep grooves at the top of the eye and this is the cerebrum part of the brain. Not sure what this means but it certainly looks interesting.

I know I’ve had some very weird symptoms in my head almost from the beginning and it’s more of a feeling than a symptom. It feels like something is not quite right, like an imbalance, a heaviness. I notice this weird feeling the most when I tilt my head back and hold it there for a while. When I move it back to normal, I have this feeling like the fluid in my brain was heavier than usual. Almost like an equilibrium imbalance inside my head. Could this be related to the cerebrum?

I could never describe it properly so other than the “head pinching” I don’t think I ever mentioned it to any doctor.

After spending most of the evening reading about iridology, I come across a web site with the Universal Iridology Chart. This chart combines the American, European & Australian Charts into one.


Practitioners claim to be able to understand an individual’s state of health and to diagnose disease by examining the color, texture, and location of various pigment flecks. Iridologists state that disease is due to “imbalances” which can be treated by nutritional supplementation with vitamins, minerals, and herbs. Others claim to be able to uncover a complete past medical history, including such things as surgical removal of the appendix. Future health problems are also not out of reach for some practitioners who feel they can diagnose severe disease well before symptoms present themselves.

How Can It Help?

Iris analysis shows basic constitution, its inherent fixed strengths and weaknesses, and gives a baseline for building and maintaining health. Since the iris changes with fluctuations in body health, it provides an ongoing picture of internal conditions and is an effective way to monitor healing. It gives the individual the opportunity to understand and take responsibility for his or her own body.

Iridology shows the state of body tissues, toxic deposits, inflammation, physical and mental fatigue and stress, preclinical stages of disease and healing. However, iridology cannot determine such things as blood pressure, medications being used, pregnancy, tumors, hemorrhage, gallstones, kidney stones or blocked arteries.

Tissue conditions are revealed at four levels of the iris: acute, subacute, chronic and degenerative. Iridology reveals problems in the formative stages, before any disease symptoms have started to appear, so early corrective action can be taken.

How Does It Work?

The eyes are an extension of the brain via the optic nerves. The nerve fibers that end in the iris connect to the entire body. Different parts of the iris correspond to different parts of the body. The presence or absence of certain markings in the iris reflects the condition of the associated body part. There is almost 120 years of scientific data showing the accuracy of iris analysis.

The Jensen charts show the eyes and map body parts to correspond to certain areas of the iris. There are 166 areas: eighty-six in the left iris and eighty in the right iris. The layout of the eye charts is analogous to the body with the brain at the top, the feet at the bottom, the skin on the outside and the bowels on the inside. The right eye reflects the right side of the body and the left eye reflects the left side.

Nutrition is often used as an associated therapy after iridology indicates which areas of the body need healing. Iridology nutrition charts show which vitamins, minerals and herbs are helpful for different areas of the body.

If Iridology is linked to nutrition and can determine what areas of the body are being effected, then this might the breakthrough I’ve been waiting for. I’ve had my appendix removed when I was about seven years old so it will be interesting to see if I can find that on the charts. If I can take a picture of my iris, compare it to the chart… who knows what I can discover and maybe I’ll find out where the problem lies and that’s my biggest problem.

I was reading my friend’s article again about his health care experiences and the eventual discovery of a tapeworm. He turned to alternative methods and contacted a woman named Leah Findlay, a self-made health professional. Leah is a very eclectic health professional knowledgeable in iridology, nutrition, reflexology and Chinese medicine.

My biggest problem is that I’m really guessing at what the problem is. No doctor has been able to diagnosis the root cause of the problem. I’d never heard of iridology so I look it up to find out more.

What is iridology or iris analysis?

Iri and iris come from the Greek name of the goddess of the rainbow, Iris. The Greeks noted eyes come in many, many colors. And ology also comes from the Greek, meaning study of. Literally translated, iridology means the study of the coloration of the eye.

The iris reveals changing conditions of every part and organ of the body. Every organ and part of the body is represented in the iris in a well defined area. In addition, through various marks, signs, and discoloration in the iris, nature reveals inherited weaknesses and strengths.

By means of this art / science, an iridologist (one who studies the coloration and fiber structure of the eye) can tell an individual his/her inherited and acquired tendencies towards health and disease, his current condition in general, and the state of every organ in particular.

Iridology cannot detect a specific disease, but, can tell an individual if they have over or under activity in specific areas of the body. For example, an under-active pancreas might indicate a diabetic condition.

History of Iridology

Iridology cannot detect a specific disease but it can tell an individual if they have over or under activity in specific areas of the body. For example, an under-active pancreas might indicate a diabetic condition. It is a preventive practice that helps people to understand their basic health issues so that they can seek treatment, if necessary, from the appropriate specialist. According to iridologists, if a health problem is detected at an early stage, something can then be done to prevent it from becoming a full-blown disease.

The idea that the eyes are a mirror to the body is an ancient one: The Greek physician Hippocrates was known to examine patients’ eyes for signs of illness. It wasn’t until 1670, however, that the first actual medical reference to iridology as a diagnostic tool appeared in German physician Phillipus Meyens’ book Chiromatica Medica.

In the late-19th century Hungarian physician Ignatz von Peczely and Swedish clergyman Nils Liljequist independently advanced theories connecting the markings of the iris with tendencies toward specific ailments. Both men’s interests stemmed from experiences in their childhoods.

As a boy, Peczely accidentally broke the leg of an owl and then noticed a black mark that subsequently appeared in the bird’s iris. Later, in his medical practice, he noted similar marks in the eyes of his human patients who’d suffered a fracture. For his part, Liljequist contracted malaria in his teens and was treated with quinine and iodine. As the drugs accumulated in his system, he noticed that his blue eyes were turning a darker color. After he later became a homeopath, he found similar reactions in his patients as well.
