Philippine Doctors Warns Public on IRIDOLOGY CENTERS , DOH's Sight Saving Month - 24 Oras Video August 5, 2008

Iridology Centers has a huge advertising campaigns on TV specially during noontime shows. One Iridology center is one of the TV commercials of a famous noontime show, by these wide TV exposure to the public these centers managed to treat a huge number of patients. But Philippine Doctors warns the public on seeking consultation to these Iridology centers and they wanted proof if Iridology really works. Here's a video from 24 Oras...

Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis) is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents believe that patterns, colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient's systemic health. Practitioners match their observations to iris charts which divide the iris into zones which they correspond to specific parts of the human body. Iridologists see the eyes as "windows" into the body's state of health.

Iridologists use the corresponding charts to highlight certain systems and organs in the body as healthy and others as overactive, inflamed, or distressed. Iridologists believe this information may be used to demonstrate a patient's susceptibility towards certain illnesses, to reflect past medical problems, or to predict health problems which may be developing.

Iridology is not supported by any published studies and is considered pseudoscience to most medical practitioners.

DCRJ's say on this: If you want my honest opinion, Iridology supports in the diagnosis of certain illnesses but what they prescribe at the Iridology centers are nothing but herbal medicines which may or may not really provide the cure, nothing beats the tested medicines prescribed by your regular MD based on P.E., laboratory testings, vital signs and the MD's 'clinical eye'
