Chronic disease results through a build-up of toxins. The body cells have a memory of past illnesses and retracing is the process of re-activating, and working through these illnesses.

When a disease isn't worked through properly at the time, an  element of latency or repression occurs eventually leading to loss of vitality, a sub-standard state of health and eventually diseases of a more insidious nature.

The various phases of disease are acute, sub-acute, chronic, sub-chronic and degenerative which are represented in the iris in changes of colour from white (acute) to dark grey (chronic) and degenerative (black).

Chronic lesions are formed over years of wrong living. A permanent cure doesn't occur apparently, until the disease process is retraced back through the various stages in the reverse order that the disease developed.

Reasons for disease are many including faulty nutrition.

Nature cure 

There are various nature cure techniques including: 

  • Cellsalts
  • Fasting
  • Specific diets
  • Hot and cold water treatments
  • Urine therapy
  • Exercise  
  • Sauna 
  • Colonics 
  • Other


Repressed conditions

"In iridology we do not determine disease names from the iris, but we do recognise toxins--whether they are developed through the intestinal tract, or as nerve acids, catarrhal discharges, excess fatigue acid, or carbonic acid. These toxins are the breeding ground for the various kinds of germ life. If all toxic acids, gases, and accumulated pus are eliminated from the body, and a clean body is the end produce, how many disease germs would stay and how little work would the doctors have to do in diagnosing and treating?"

"Many forms of diagnosis are dependent upon what germ life exists, and its existence in the body usually indicates a bad state of deterioration. Disease germs are nature's undertakers"

-- Bernard Jenson, The Science and Practise of Iridology

The development of disease

"We start at the age of two with the acute condition represented in white [in the iris]. At the age of eleven the condition develops into the sub-acute stage, represented in grey. The darker grey represents a chronic state of affairs at the age of 28. The very dark grey at 36 is the sub-chronic stage. After the age of 36, the darkest stage is complete degeneration. 

"We show here how disease is developed, how the accumulated effects produce certain symptoms in the body, and how the reversal process brings back the troubles of the past."

-- Bernard Jenson, The Science and Practice of Iridology.

Healing crisis

"Diseases normally disappear from within outward, and in the reverse order of their coming.

"Fasting is a good way to bring on a healing crisis, although fasting on its own is not enough to build new healthy tissue. There also needs to be all the essential nutritional elements such as a balanced diet combined with necessary vitamins and minerals."

-- Bernard Jenson, The Science and Practice of Iridology.


A healing crisis typically comes at a time when a person feels at their best and the body has built up a certain amount of energy, required to perform the task of elimination of toxins. At the time of a healing crisis the organs of elimination are said to be working in good order. 

Manifestations typically include:

  • Pain,
  • Fever
  • Discharges in organs of elimination e.g., bowels, lungs, skin, nose etc.
  • Perspiration. 

Healing Crisis vs Disease Crisis

"It is difficult for the average person and the for the average doctor to tell the difference between the healing crisis and a disease process. Though usually the manifestations are similar, a healing crisis is brought about through an accumulation of health in the body, and the active healing power carries the person through. It is difficult to accept the fact that a healing crisis comes right after a patient is feeling his best. Invariably a patient says, "I have never felt so well in my life." This is the time you can usually expect the crisis and is the time when the crisis can do its best work.

"It takes energy to eliminate wastes, to go through these eruptions, whether boils, rashes, or pimples. It is only through the ascendancy of an inherent power to eliminate that we can accomplish what we do in a healing crisis. During the healing crisis the patient's bowel movements usually are better regulated than they are during a disease crisis. We can usually tell the difference in this way, and of course, the difference is made evident by the use of the science of iridology.

"One crisis is not always enough for a complete 'cure'. 
The person in a chronic state, who has gone through many disease processes in his life, must go through these disease processes again in the reverse order in which they occurred. 

"Even homeopathy works for the healing crisis. No matter what system we use, if we can possibly bring about these healing crises, we are working for the patient's higher good.

"In looking over the whole process, consider that disease is an eliminative activity of the body. If we believe that the body is consistently trying to remain well, we believe that even the process of disease is an eliminative process; and we should do little to interfere because the body is fighting for supremacy over the disease. It is well to know that even disease can be looked upon as a 'cure' by allowing it to run its course and by giving the body every opportunity to recover of its own accord."

-- Bernard Jenson, The Science and Practice of Iridology.



About Fever

"While in the past it was considered dangerous to have a fever and anything to get rid of the fever was considered sound practice, now we find it helpful to induce fever.  

"Many of the schools of thought who formerly advocated suppressing fever, are today changing their ideas and are using fevers as a help towards getting a person well."


Suppression of Symptoms

Suppressive treatments are those that eliminate symptoms without acknowledging the cause of the problem. 

"Much ill-health, particularly in adults, is merely a manifestation of the condition known as auto-toxemia or self-poisoning.  From the moment of birth, food is taken into the alimentary canal with never a respite for the overworked organs of digestion. Debris begins to accumulate faster than it can be eliminated. "

"Unwanted nutriment is stored away in reserve as fat, but sooner or later a radical cleansing effort has to be made by the body to rid itself of accumulations of waste products, and many so-called "diseases" are simply the outward and visible signs of this inward cleansing process.  

" Unwanted organic matter which incidentally provides a favourable soil for infection by micro-organisms, is removed in various ways and all the organs of elimination are used -- bowels, kidneys, lungs and skin. Catarrh and eczema are examples of such an operation involving elimination through the mucous membranes and skin. "

Suppression leads to degeneration

"No attempt should be made to SUPPRESS such symptoms. To do so only invites trouble of a more serious kind in the future. 

"In fact the suppression of symptoms is responsible for some of the degenerative diseases in later life e.g., rheumatism. Rather, we should assist the body in its periodical spring-cleaning and this can best be done by a period of rest and warmth and the lightest of diets. In fact, abstention from solid foods for a short period can make an important contribution."

Medical Drugs

"Numbers of people are unknowingly suffering from the cumulative effects of SUPPRESSIVE treatments to which they have been subjected in the past - medical drug poisoning - and, in such cases, response to biochemic treatment may be slow.  

"If little no benefit is apparent after a reasonable period of treatment with the remedy indicated by the symptoms, the system can be rendered more responsive by a short anti-toxic course consisting of the two remedies nat. mur (homeopathic sodium chloride) and kali sulph (potassium sulphate).

The Scurf Rim

In iridology the scurf rim is the outermost border of the iris. Bernard Jenson maintains the scurf rim is a reliable indicator of retention of wastes in the body.

A heavy scurf rim signifies a retention of morbid waste in the body. A wide, dark, deep scurf rim opposite any particular organ area indicates that organ has the greatest amount of acid, catarrhal, and morbid waste retention. It is also a definite sign of a SUPPRESSED condition in that organ.

A dark scurf rim in the area of the feet, for example, could be the result of having SUPPRESSED chronic perspiration of the feet.
