Iridology is based upon the analysis of the colours and patterns found within the iris. Both the left and right eyes have been charted and each component of the respective irises relate to a specific region, organ or system of the human body. By assessing changes or abnormalities with these areas of the iris we are able to suggest where an abnormality may be residing.
A complete iris analysis will show whether a person exhibits a generally good constitution or a poor one, depending upon the density of the iris fibres, the patterns, structures, colours and degrees of lightness and darkness in the iris tell if an area of the body is inherently strong or weak. It also reveals the relative site of over-activity, irritation, injury or degeneration of the tissues and organs.
Many peoples’ zinc level is extremely low. This results in a very poor immune system with an increased risk of infections and allergies. Low zinc is also associated with poor growth, skin disorders, low fertility, and also low mood. Unlike other minerals, there is a very simple test for your zinc status. One of the first indications of low zinc function is a loss of taste and smell. The zinc taste test can be used to determine zinc levels. This is a very quick and easy test that involves swishing 10 ml of liquid zinc solution in your mouth and the response to taste and texture will determine your zinc status.
