Nutritional deficiencies – What signs to look for if you think you may have them

This list has been compiled by Dr Patrick Kingsley – so thank you Patrick! I have added in a few of my own.

Symptoms are actually better indicators of nutritional deficiency than signs – indeed a BMJ article pointed out that 80% of diagnoses are made on the history, 6% on signs and 6% on investigations (although they didn’t say how the other 8% was accounted for!) Anyhow, the following can be pointers to deficiencies, but they do not apply in all cases.

The Eye is the Window of The Soul

What Is Iridology?

Iridology is the science and practice of analyzing the iris, of  the eye which is the most complex tissue structure in the human anatomy. The iris reveals the level of constitutional strength, inherited weaknesses, state of health and the metabolism that take place in our organs, glands  and tissues according to the way we  live our lives.

Iridology is an eye analysis that reveals a person’s relative state of health; it concerns itself with tissue integrity that can tell an individual if they have over or under activity in specific areas of the body.

The iris records information through reflex response about the state and functioning of every organ in the body.  It is similar to how acupuncture and reflexology looks at the body as an energy system.  Iridology is one of the best assessment tools available to be able to assess systems of the body that are genetically strong.  It is a safe, painless, non invasive and inexpensive method of analysis.

What Do Your Eyes Reveal?

  • Your Genetic Blueprint
  • Physical traits that we inherit.
  • The origins from our family tree.
  • How diet and lifestyle impact us.
  • Which mental and emotional aspects significantly affect our physical health

What kind of body you have for a vehicle, and what type of driver you are

What Does An Iridologist Do?

As iridologists, we look into a persons eyes to assess and understand the meaning of the patterns that are located in the iris of the eye.  No two eyes are alike.  Each marking has a unique meaning for each individual.  We analyze areas within the body that are strong and areas of potential deficiencies through the levels of inflammation and toxicity in the body and also the efficiency of the elimination organs and more.  We show our clients about the physiological mechanisms that apply to their situations and offer information about options that are known to be beneficial, such as dietary or lifestyle changes.

How Is An Iris Analysis Done?

It is a one on one assessment that starts with an examination using a special Iriscope or Magnifying glass.

An in depth iridology analysis is given and a summary of findings is presented.
