What is Iridology – Part 2 (Constitutions)

What is Iridology Part 2 – “Analyzing Your Constitution” (By Rhea Baluyut, C.IR.)

It’s important to keep in mind that a “strong” vs. “weak” constitution is not equivalent to the difference between “good” or “bad”. It simply provides insight on how the body endures stressors that one is exposed to, whether it is physical, nutritional, environmental or emotional.

eyeConstitutions are inherent and remain the same throughout someone’s lifetime. Gaining insight of our constitution enables us to better understand what we can do to support the body and our wellbeing. Regardless of constitution, the goal is the same for both types: to build and maintain a strong immunity and minimize negative impacts to our body from exposures to stress.

Strong Constitution appearance

  • Less sensitive to what is happening to body. Ensures stress, but has challenges balancing well. Tendency to abuse body
  • Benefits from regular cleanses
