INTRODUCTION: As you will notice there are only three colors of the iris (according to Iridology). In iridology the true color of the eye is blue. In fact, when you are born you had blue eyes, they change as you get older.
Then “Why are there other colors”? Good question. The simple answer for now is that the other colors (other than Blue, Brown, and what we call Mixed) displays toxins or other pigmentations on top of the eye to make it change to a different color. For now I am going to cover the three main iris colors (constitutions) in iridology.
BLUE EYE TYPE also known in Germany as Lymphatic.
Description: Solid blue or blue/gray color with no discoloratrion or psora (pigments). The iris fibers are visible. The true blue-eyed person is associated with the traditional Western phlegmatic or water constitution. This is the “pure” eye that is typically found in people of European descent.
Tendencies: These people are thought to have an excess of water, which leads to a greater tendency towards water retention, lymphatic congestion and stagnation. There are 3 primary systems of concern for blue-eye people: Lymphatic, Respiratory and Urinary. Diseases people with blue eyes have are: allergies and allergic reactions, skin conditions like eczema and seborrea dermatitis, chronic sinus, respiratory congestion, ear aches and ear infections, swollen lymph nodes, sore throats, stressed kidneys and bladder.
BROWN EYE TYPE also known in Germany as Hematogenic.
Pure Brown eye with pigments covering the iris fiber structure. The iris fibers are covered with a heavy pigment layer that has a velvety or carpet-like appearance. Iris fiber are generally not visible through this heavy layer of pigment. True hematogenic constitutions are nearly always found in people with darker skin and hair.
Tendencies: Pure brown eyes are more difficult for the iridologists to read because of the layer of pigment completely covering the iris fibers, so some of the subtler signs are not detectable. There are 3 primary systems of concern for the brown-eyed people: Hepatic (liver and gallbladder), Cardiovascular, and Glandular (endocrine and exocrine glands, and lymph nodes). Disease brown-eyed people have are: venous congestion, tendency to imbalances in blood composition, anemia, thicker blood, tendency to hardening of the arteries, trace minerals deficiencies and difficulty in storing trace minerals, intolerance to dairy, liver problems, and decreased white blood cells.
MIXED EYE TYPE also known in Germany as Biliary.
Description: This eye is characterized by light to moderate brown pigmentation or discoloration over the top of a whitish-yellowish background. The overall appearance of the iris is usually a light brown, but unlike the true brown eye, the iris fibers are visible through the pigment. Color is often concentrated towards the center of the iris around the collarette and digestive zones.
Tendencies: In autopsy, eyes are composed of materials from the blood stream which have been broken down due to liver imbalance. They are called biliary constitution, because it relates to biliousness (digestive disturbances) due to liver problems. There are 3 primary systems of concern for mixed-eye people: Digestive (stomach and pancreas), Hepatic (liver and gallbladder), and Intestinal (small and large intestines). Diseases mixed-eye people have are: indigestion, intestinal gas, diarrhea, and/or constipation disturbances in fat metabolism causing gall stones, high cholesterol, sleep disturbances, food allergies, and reproductive disturbances.
As you can see from my brief descriptions, there is a lot to consider when an iridologist does an analysis of the iris of the eye. Iridology is the most useful tool in determining the constitution of the individual.
