Eyes called window to health September 7, 2007Posted by Dreamhealer in Alternatives.
(September 7, 2007) — The notion of examining people’s eyes to determine their health might sound a bit far-fetched.
But Carla Buscaglia said the alternative medicine technique saved her life eight years ago. She has since built a Rochester business called Global Nutrition around the practice of iridology and nutrition.
Iridology, the technique of examining eyes, is based on the belief that the pattern, color and other characteristics of the iris can reveal physical weaknesses in the body. Iridologists follow an eye chart that details which sections of the eye correlate to various parts of the body.
“I know it sounds hocus-pocus, but it works,” said Buscaglia, who suffered from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and ulcers.
The doctors she went to prescribed a regimen of medications that Buscaglia said she didn’t want to deal with.
“When I was sick, I didn’t have options like this (iridology),” she said.
