Iridology From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis) is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents believe that patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. Practitioners match their observations to iris charts which divide the iris into zones corresponding to specific parts of the human body. Iridologists see the eyes as "windows" into the body's state of health.
The majority of medical doctors reject all the claims of all branches of iridology and label them as pseudoscience or even quackery. Iridologists are rarely physicians. Iridology is only studied at private institutions, and it is not taught at medical schools.
Critics, including most practitioners of mainstream medicine, dismiss iridology as published studies have indicated a lack of success for its claims. Clinical data does not support any correlation between illness in the body and coinciding observable changes in the iris. In controlled experiments, practitioners of iridology have performed statistically no better than chance in determining the presence of a disease or condition solely through observation of the iris.
It has been pointed out that the premise of iridology is at odds with the fact that the iris does not undergo substantial changes in an individual's life. Iris texture is a phenotypical feature which develops during gestation and remains unchanged after birth. There is no evidence for changes in the iris pattern other than variations in pigmentation in the first year of life, eventual freckles and variations caused by glaucoma treatment. This stability of iris structures is at the foundation of iris recognition for identification purposes
My Experience with the iridology check up on 24/4/2009I went for the check up by a young female doctor,after the eye screening she told me a few points about my health as follows :
1) I got a cholesterol on my head which is about 6. something mmol/l .2) My big intestine has got fungus growth.
As a result i have "angin".3) I got sinus problem.4) My anus is becoming smaller...and i have constipation problem and the stool are becoming smaller and may have difficulty "Pang-Sai" I whispered to her that i got non of the above sickness except the first one which is cholesterol...but i forgot to ask her how she was able to read my level as 6. something!No body knows our health better then ourselves (with conditions)...why should we be worried about our health(who is she?) ;When you don't even being diagnosed or checked by a qualified doctor!
Ai Yo Don't know what to say!!
At times i got to do hide & seek in order to avoid him following me too close...He always said "YES! SIR" but then the next minutes he will appear behind my back again!
At last i got no other better choice so i bought a nice camouflage sweater to wear to void being detected again by him...haha
