It’s been a while since we’ve done a post on iridology
A typical iridology map divides the eye into sections, using the image of a clock face as a base. So, for example, if you want to know the condition of a patient’s thyroid gland, you need not touch the patient to feel for any enlargement of the gland. All you need to do is look in the iris of the right eye at about 2:30 and the iris of the left eye at about 9:30. Discolorations, flecks, streaks, etc. in those parts of the eyes are all you need concern yourself with, if it is the condition of the thyroid you wish to know. For problems with the vagina or penis, look at 5 o’clock in the right eye.
Practitioners of iridology say there are three constitutional types of eye colour
The blue eyed constitution (“lymphatic type”), whose inherent tendencies include: irritated appendix; catarrh with exudations; eczema; acne; dry skin; dandruff; asthma; coughs; bronchitis; sinusitis; diarrhoea; arthritis; vaginal discharge; eye irritations; fluid retention.”
The pure brown eyed constitution (“haematogenic type”), whose inherent tendencies include: “Anaemia; muscle spasms; endocrine disorders; spleenic disturbances; poor lymphatic drainage; swollen glands; flatulence; constipation; colonic tumour; dyspepsia; ulcers; liver, gallbladder & pancreatic malfunctions; diabetes; auto-intoxication.”
A combination of the two types, whose inherent tendencies include: “Flatulence; constipation; colitis; diabetes; blood diseases; gall-stones; liver, gastro-intestinal weakness with spasm; lymphatic constitutional weaknesses.”
And then there’s Sanpaku
Generally, there are two types of sanpaku. The first is yin sanpaku, white showing below the iris, which is very common, especially among drug addicts. Here, the iris floats upward, revealing the sclera below. The second type is yang sanpaku, white showing above the iris; here the iris sinks downward toward the bottom eyelid. This reveals a dangerous or violent character. Charles Manson has beautiful yang sanpaku eyes.
The macrobiotic philosopher George Ohsawa wrote a book called You Are All Sanpaku and dedicated it to John Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln. Ohsawa said they were seriously sanpaku and thus suffered from impaired judgment that indicated poor health and premature death.
Yin sanpaku, or white showing below the isis, is the result of excessive intake of yin substances, such as sugar, refined grains, alcohol, and medical drugs.
Yang sanpaku, or white showing above the iris, comes from excessive intake of meat, salt, and hard cheeses, and from indulgence in violence. Yang sanpaku shows a character that is self-centered and bent on fulfilling its own ambition, something without regard for the cost.
