Dr. William M. Stone, D.C., Ir.

Dr. Stone is a Certified Iridologist, Diplomat the International Institute of Iridology, and Charter Member of The American College of Iridology. He has practiced for fifteen years, and integrates iris analysis with nutrition. The doctor graduated with honors from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Board Certified Holistic Health Counselor, and is a Diplomat Member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants.

Iridology is the assessment of the colored portion of the eye called the iris, and reveals the level of health and presence of tissue inflammation in the body, where it is located, and what stage it has reached. The iris reveals the level of constitutional strength, inherent weaknesses, and the transitions that take place in a persons organs and tissues according to the way they eat, drink, feel, think, and live.
An evaluation consists of a consultation, examination of iris photos taken at the time of consult and nutritional recommendations.

What is Iridology?

Many people today are talking about how we can see our level of health through looking at our eyes. This brief explanation will serve as an introduction to Iridology. The science and practice if Iridology is performed by analyzing the iris( or colored portion of the eye) along with the sclera (or white of the eye).

The iris is the most complex external structure of the human anatomy. It is connected to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the nervous system. Through the optic nerves, which are attached to the eyes, vision information is sent to the brain. At the same time information is sent back to the eyes from the brain about your overall level of health.
Iridology reveals the health and presence of tissue inflammation in the body, where it is located and what stage is has reached- acute, subacute, chronic or degenerative. The iris reveals the level of constitutional strength, inherent weaknesses and the transitions that take place in a person’s organs and tissues according to the way they eat, drink, feel, think and live.

Today in the 20th century, doctors and scientists primarily from the United States (Dr Bernard Jensen) and Germany (Josef Deck and Josef Angerer) have brought Iridology into worldwide recognition.

The actual fiber structures and various colors we see in the iris tell us about the level of physical traits as well as conscious and subconscious thought/emotional patterns.
Each eye gives us different information. The right eye correlates with the left side of our body which is that feminine, creative, conceptual and intuitive side of us. The left eye correlates to the right side of our body which is that analytical, practical, linear and masculine side of us.

Iridology provides a painless and economical means of looking into the body. It may be utilized in conjunction with any other system of analysis or diagnosis available. Today, people are in need of preventive health care and less complex methods of analyzing their condition. Iridology holds a key to both of these situations.

Iris analysis is done by photographing both eyes with a specialized camera. The photos are enlarged and carefully examined by a qualified Iridologist.
All clinical work is performed with the highest skills and standards. My advanced approach to Iridology encompasses various systems that are integrated into a truly holistic model.

The eyes are the bridge between the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical aspects of our human nature. This science may seem new and different to you. I encourage you to be open and explore the possibilities.

The eye has been proclaimed through the ages as the “mirror of the soul” and now we also acknowledge it as the window to the physical body, mental thoughts and emotional feelings.


What is Iridology?
        Iridology is a powerful method of analyzing tissue states and the condition of the organs throughout your body. A reading of your irises will give you valuable information regarding your physical, mental, and emotional strengths and weaknesses. Your constitution, inherent traits, and current state of health as revealed by your eyes will be explained to you in minute detail, with an emphasis on steps you can take now to prevent problems in the future.


The Birth of Iridology
        In the sketches on ancient papyruses, which are several thousands years old, one can see many pictures in which priests investigate the eyes of a pharaoh. According to research, the priests of Ancient Egypt were able not only to make diagnosis of the existing disease, but also to make a prognosis of the future state of a patient's health, to determine the characteristic features of a person, based on the changes in the iris. The Greek physician Hippocrates was known to examine patients' eyes for signs of illness. It wasn't until 1670, however, that the first actual medical reference to Iridology as a diagnostic tool appeared in the German physician Phillipus Meyens' book Chiromatica Medical. Iridology first became known in the United States in the 1950s. Bernard Jensen, an American chiropractor, began giving classes in his own method, which focuses mainly on the color of the iris, the body's exposure to toxins, and use of natural foods as detoxifiers.

Is it Painful?
        The procedure is not painful at all. The basic treatment involves observing the eye with a gentle light, accompanied by a loup (a magnifying device). For all treatments, there is no physical contact with the eye.

What to Expect after the Procedure
        Upon completion of the exam, you will be given your Personal Eye Chart. This one of a kind map will show different colors depicting your strengths and weaknesses. Suggestions as to nutritional supplementation and companion therapies will also be discussed.

        At the Natural Alternative Center your Iridology Session will convince you that you are only as strong as your weakest  tissue link. By understanding your inherent weaknesses, you will be able to properly build upon these tissues. Every landmark sign has its own unique story and we must read and consider the many possible inherent, chemical, reflex, nerve, spiritual, mental and philosophical aspects.
