The iris gives me great ‘insight’ into the physical, emotional and mental constitutional make up of an individual. Significant signs are recognised in the iris well (often years) before the symptoms of medical (physical and mental) illness develop. The iris not only displays inherent strengths and vulnerabilities but also the presence and location of inflammation, the state of the nervous system, acid/alkaline levels, mineral needs, etc. By viewing the individual from the holistic perspective that the Iris provides, current and potential health issues can be overcome and prevented”
