Iridology (or as I like to call it "Iris gazing" is "an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that patterns, colors, and other
characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. (Wikipedia)"
There is a local man who does this, just a hop, skip and jump over the Tennessee Kentucky boarder. A friend asked if I'd like to go with her, so I
took a day trip to get my eyes "read". I've heard some pretty bold claims about this dude. I was kind of nervous.
I'm a sorta skeptic. I'm more likely to believe than not (in most cases). However, this guy was utterly unimpressive. He shined his light, looking
in my eyes. Asking "Do you have sinus problems?" No, not really. But that isn't uncommon this time of year."Do you have kidney problems?" Nope.
"You've had children?" Yes. I give him no more than that, figuring that if I tell him I've had 4 that may just feed more questions. "Did you have
a c section?" No. "But you had uturine problems? Did you have bad cramping when you were younger?" No, but they have gotten worse since having
kids. "Do you have pain in the chest? A heart murmur?" No regular pains, and no murmur that I am aware of. "What about digestive issues? Do you
have your gall bladder? You have gall stones." I certainly hope not. But I suppose I'll find out eventually.
I didn't really respond quite as frankly, but that's essentially how it went down. Then they tried to sell me herbs to help with these issues. All
vague ailments that could apply to many people. My test of authenticity was to see if he could get a hit on an actual illness that I do have. I was a
little bummed that he didn't.
Like Fox Mulder said "I want to believe ".
