Decisive indications for therapy

IrisdiagnoseIris diagnosis is an immeasurably valuable diagnostic tool for the therapist. It enables an insight into the overall situation of the sick person,laboratory nor facial diagnosis can offer. It makes the chosen therapy holistic and individual.


The observation of changes in the eye and its surroundings is as old as people have ever looked at each other. The ancient Chinese, Hippocrates and Philostratus all refer to the specific use of ophthalmic observation in medical diagnostics. Today we have the wonderful possibility to get even closer to what is happening by using magnifying glasses and eye microscopes.

Mirror of the hidden genetic material

In order to describe iris diagnosis in more detail, I would like to quote the famous iris diagnostician Rudolf Schnabel, because he knew how to formulate it so excellently: "It provides insight into the mostly hidden hereditary mass of the constitution, of which it is capable of being the most outstanding mirror." Iris tissue is connective tissue (matrix). Consequently, it can read: "Structural analysis of living connective tissue.

The signs, structures, pigmentations and biodynamic indications relevant for ophthalmic diagnosis open up the extraordinarily important possibility for the expert observer to recognise the cause and tendency of the individual illness of a person already in the run-up to illnesses. Accordingly, an experienced practitioner can initiate preventive measures at a very early stage.
