Can Eye Colour Predict Your Health?

Can Eye Colour Predict Your Health?

Last update: 25 March, 2022

The eyes have it – and much more than you might think. According to the science of iridology, your eye colour can predict your health. Sound absurd? Not so. Look into the eyes to learn more about your predispositions to certain illnesses.

If you visit an iridologist, this professional therapist will run a series of exams on many of your eye’s functions. He or she will also use the colour of your eyes to determine whether or not there are any underlying conditions. You could discover some surprising things about yourself.

In iridology, the colour of the iris gives clues – from as early as infancy – as to how your lifestyle choices may lead to ill health. This isn’t soothsaying. It’s an opportunity for you to learn how to look after yourself. If you know that you might be more susceptible to certain ailments, you can take steps to avoid them. If you suspect that you may be suffering the effects of disease, don’t leave it too late. See your GP and then find an iridologist for further diagnosis.

In the meantime, we hope to give you some valuable background information about this intriguing science. We’ll begin by explaining general characteristics of the most common eye colours. They’re divided into three categories.

Blue and grey eyes

If your eyes are blue or grey, your throat, nose and ears may be vulnerable. You may want to watch for signs of respiratory problems or cataracts. Kidney, joint and digestive problems are often found in those whose eyes are blue or grey. 

An iris with numerous white lines running through it can signify alterations of the nervous system. What this means is that there may be nervousness, anxiety and muscle twitching. Emotional and physical problems may be closely linked. Happily, many people who fit this description benefit greatly from plant therapies. Try Bach flower remedies and regular exercise to stave off dark moods.

Dark eyes

Not sure if you fall into this category? It’s no surprise! There are quite a few colours that fit. If your eyes are anywhere from light brown to nearly black (and every shade in between), you have dark eyes.

In general, the hallmark of these irises is a correlation with the body’s blood. Things to consider in pursuit of better health are imbalances related to mineral metabolism – things such as calcium, iron and sulphur. Dark-eyed people should look after their circulatory system, with particular emphasis on the liver, the spleen and bone marrow.

As you age, there’s a tendency towards obesity and thyroid problems. You may also experience swings in endocrine levels, so you should pay special attention to your liver. Treat it kindly and don’t overburden it with too much drink or rich food.

Although hearty in your younger years, you brown-eyed folk may start to see a shift by the age of 25 or 30. From then, you may begin to see anaemia or raised cholesterol levels.

What we’re really trying to stress here is this: if you’re not yet 30, don’t think that you can get away with a poor diet forever. It will eventually catch up with you. If you’ve passed your thirtieth year, it’s not too late. Embrace healthier habits now. Take regular exercise to stimulate your circulatory system. You may want to consider natural vitamin supplements, as well, like spirulina or chlorella.

Additionally, if your eyes are closer to hazel in colour, you may find yourself more susceptible to problems with the digestion or respiration. You’ll need to give your body clean, nutritious food that helps to eliminate toxins.

Green and dappled eyes

Dappled? We’re referring to those eyes that contain a mixture of many different colours. Your eye colour may be primarily green, but it may also contain flecks of brown or grey. Of course, you may be one of those rare creatures whose eyes are a stunning shade of emerald green. Either way, to get a better idea of potential health concerns, do determine whether they’re lighter or darker. This will tell you whether you should pay attention to the first category or the second one.

Prove it!

Curious about the accuracy of iridology and its diagnoses? Compare yourself to your nearest family who share your eye colour. Bear in mind that diseases manifest differently. If you lead a healthier life than your boozy uncle Monty, it’s likely that he’ll experience more of the problems outlined in this article.

As time marches on, you’ll observe changes in your eye colour. Through the years, they tend to grow darker. It’s speculated that this is because the body holds on to more toxins and contaminants.

If your interest is piqued by what you’ve read, why not look more deeply into the theory. You never know how a professional iridologist could help you prevent future illness. The sooner you make positive changes, the better!
