What Can the Color of Your Eyes Tell You?

· April 25, 2015

Iridology is the science that studies the eye’s iris, which can be used to determine one’s predisposition to suffering from certain health problems, based on the color of your eyes.

Iridologists are therapists in charge of performing extensive exams on all the signals an eye can give, but the color of your eyes can already determine a few things to confirm suspicions, or even to warm about other conditions that could surprise you.

According to iridology, the color of the iris determines a predisposition for health states from birth, which, in the future, will depend on how you take care of yourself, how you eat, etc.  This means that the iris doesn’t determine definitively, but is simply a clue for help guide us to better health.  That’s why if you suffer from any sort of health problem, or if you’re unsure, consult an iridologist for a reliable diagnosis.

In this article we are going to explain the generic characteristics of each eye color, which are divided into three categories:

Blue and Gray eyes

Individuals with a blue or grey iris could have weak points in their throat, nose and ears, which could predispose them to cataracts, suffering from respiratory problems, irritation in the digestive mucous membranes, and kidney and joint problems.

When the iris has several white lines in it, this is also a sign of some sort of alteration in the nervous system, thereby leading to a nervous or anxious disposition, muscle spasms and a blending of these mood states with physical problems.  In this case, you absolutely must help yourself with relaxing medicinal plants, Bach Flowers or homeopathy, and exercise frequently.

Brown and dark eyes

This tone encompasses anything from light brown or hazelnut, to dark brown or nearly black.

Generally speaking, these iris’s show a predisposition to suffering from imbalances related to the blood or mineral metabolism, like calcium, iron, and sulfur, which means that these individuals should care for their circulatory system, especially the liver, bone marrow and the spleen.

Over the course of time, these people could also tend to be obese, have thyroid problems, and endocrine alterations, which means that treatment and prevention will also need to include liver health.

These individuals could generally not have health problems when younger, but after 25 or 30 years of age, they may begin to detect problems in their blood work: high cholesterol, anemia, etc.

This eye color means that care needs to be taken from a young age, because with no health problems at a young age, these individuals generally eat a poor diet.

We also recommend that these individuals exercise regularly to maintain balance in the circulatory system.  They should also take specific supplements.

Lighter eyes, on the other hand, like hazel eyes, will lead to a predisposition to digestive and respiratory problems.  The body will need help eliminating toxins with regular cleanses and a healthy diet.

Green and mixed eyes

This category encompasses all colors that range somewhere between the categories previously mentioned, and include iris’s that mix colors, generally green and brown.  This category also include purely green eyes.  In order to determine your disposition, you must check to see whether your eyes are lighter or darker, which means that you will fall into either the first or the second list primarily.



A good way to check just how trustworthy this diagnosis is, is to compare yourself with direct family members that have the same eye color as you do.  Although, as said at the beginning of the article, whether you develop certain diseases or not is dependent on how you care for your health.

With time you will also be able to observe changes in your eye color, as the eyes generally tend to grow darker.  This is precisely because the body also grows “filthier”.

At any rate, this guide can be interesting or useful, and if you’d like to know more about the subject, just consult a professional that can give you more precise information by observing your iris.
