Equine Iridology

Iridologists claim that every part of the body is mapped out, like a blueprint, on well defined areas of the iris and that analyzing the structure, marks and discolourations of the eye can reveal the conditions of every organ and each part of the horse's body.

The eye is examined using a torch and magnifying glass. The iridologist looks for marks, spots and colours in the iris which may indicate a possible problem.

These health problems may be shown as over or under activity in a specific organ or area of the body rather than a specific disease. An example would be that an underactive pancreas could indicate diabetes or a tendancy towards diabetes. 

This could be a useful tool in helping to diagnose or pinpoint the cause of discomfort in a horse - as a horse cannot communicate to us where or why it is feeling ill or appearing unwell.

Opinion of the benefits of equine iridology amongst vets is divided. Some are skeptical - others are happy to work alongside an equine iridologist at the horse owner's request.

Iridology readings can be done via the Internet for $40.  If you would like to send your own photos, one of the right eye and one of the left eye (like the ones on this page) I can do a reading and email a full report of my findings with any ailments and how they can be helped within 24 hours.  allcreatures_2000@yahoo.com
