Iridology is a science that studies the structure of the iris in order to know the physical and psycho-imotional characteristics of the individuel.


What is iridology

Iridology is a science that studies the structure of the iris in order to know the physical and psycho-emotional characteristics of the individual. The colors, shapes, designs, architectures are observed and they relate to the whole body through well-defined maps, so as to identify constitutional weaknesses, predispositions or physical disorders and psycho-emotional characteristics end epigenetcs. It is possible to identify the causes of many symptoms and thus help people to make those lifestyle changes that can bring them back to a good balance and a state of well-being so deeply personal; like a tailored suit that knows how to enhance some parts and improve others, choosing the fabric, the colors, the model and the seams.

Historical notes

In ancient Chinese and Indian medical books dating back to about 2000 years ago, observations made on the iris and on the eye are reported to assess the state of health of the individual. Attention was paid to and cared for the relationship of the human being with nature and the cosmos.

In the sixteenth century, Paracelsus wrote: "Consider with what art the eye is built and how the body has impressed its anatomy so wonderfully in its image”.

Each of us is witness to the power of the gaze and the brightness or otherwise of the eyes, an expression of energetic vivacity, unfortunately often turned off by physical and / or emotional pathologies.

Modern iridology can be traced back to Ignatz von Peczely, Hungarian physician. Legend has it that Dr. Ignatz met by chance an owl that had a broken leg and realizing that it had a radial mark in its large eyes on the iris, he had the intuition to relate the fracture with the sign. Thus he began to observe the iris variations that occurred on sick people by formulating the theory of iridology. Further research by German and French doctors followed later. In Italy the most important figures who used and developed iridology were Luigi Costacurta, father Emilio Ratti and Siegfried Rizzi, who founded the Italian Iridological Association.

Multidimensional iridology

These are several topographic maps that are used to identify the affected parts of the body and which catch the eye through particular signs: gaps, discolorations, radials, crypts. It is possible to observe inflammation, intoxication of organs or tissues, inherited constitutional tendencies that cause some disorders.

This is one map in Iridology

The observation of the iris allows you to involve the customer in the search for a lifestyle that is more suitable for himself. Make him aware and responsible for his present and future well-being, by working on a preventive level.

Today, thanks to technology and the knowledge acquired in neurophysiology, we can also observe and study the epigenetic and emotional aspect that often causes physical symptoms.

The iris (the pupil) is in direct contact with the central nervous system through the autonomic nervous system and the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus is part of both the autonomic nervous system and the limbic system. In the limbic system we have nervous structures capable of creating emotions and behaviors adapted to stimuli and personal needs. So on the iris it is possible to identify the deep tensions that are able to activate the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (stress axis) and the related production of cortisol.

The abnormal production of cortisol, in the long term, can cause diseases such as: hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis and inhibition of the immune system.

Therefore, information of an emotional nature finds its expression on the iris through variations in the shape and reactivity of neuromuscular tissues (the pupil). Through the observation of the iris we can have information on the customer on a physical, energetic, emotional, psychic and spiritual level and recently iridology can also be applied to the world of work and improve resilience.

Individual constitution

The background color of the iris is taken into account in the constitution,

the product of interaction between psyco-emotional, and physical.


Haematogenic - Sanguine

Mixed constitution

Electrohomeopaty & Iridology

Is based on De-Vitiation of Blood and Lymph or Both

  • Through iris observation prescribe the constitutional remedy, does not matter whatever the diseas

  • Through Iris diagnosis than go with specific organ remedy




Reading the irises through the map we can understand which organ or system is imbalance, so go for specific organ remedy,

Mattei’s spagyric essence of electrohomoeopathy supply the organism with elements it needs, and

drive away what is more and not needed.
