Feelings of stress, overwhelm, lack of focus and chronic pain are impacting the lives of many nowadays. Individuals are seeking answers to their physical ailments or emotional turmoil by visiting one or more practitioners, yet walking away time and again with a prescription in hand and even more questions stirring around in their heads. Oftentimes, these individuals have a knowing deep from within that the answers to their health issues are out there...It is just a matter of looking in the right place!
The practices of conventional medicine today are similar to the fast-paced society and the attitudes to fix a symptom now and worry about the side effects later. We live in an immediate gratification culture and want everything to be “fixed” now, whether regarding our health or seeing how fast we can get dinner on the table.
It is the approach of addressing one thing quickly without considering the possible effects later. The cheap and convenient fast food may curb hunger pangs, but it isn’t healthy, and that magic prescription pill may rid you of your aches for a few hours, but at the price of other health risks. These instant answers are not the correct long-term solutions to problems, but rather band-aids, and this quick fix approach or just brushing the surface exists in practically every aspect of life.
Everywhere we look online; there is an array of answers to many problems. We have more information than ever, available right at our fingertips. If we have a question about any topic, a quick online search will provide multiple answers. We can place an order from virtually anywhere in the world and have the product delivered to our doorstep in a matter of days. It would seem that with so much information and various conveniences available to us that we’d be the happiest, healthiest people ever, but that’s not the case. Why?
The fast-paced mode of life has not come without a price. In a world filled with to-do lists and deadlines and where almost every one of us is plugged in one way or another, it’s difficult to shut out the noise and wind down. This chaotic lifestyle has caused an influx of health issues, not just physically, but emotionally as well. That is why it is crucial to step back and allow time for rejuvenation. Our bodies are sending us signals continuously, we just have to stop, listen and understand.
The body, mind, and spirit are all linked and the holistic approach recognizes that an issue affecting one aspect can cause symptoms in another within the body.
The Holistic Approach Empowers You
Holistic health focuses on the overall well-being of an individual. It is the understanding that each bodily system, every function, and signal that the body, mind, and spirit are communicating is important and is all inter-connected.
It is the acknowledgment that the foods we eat affect our physical and mental health and the fact that stress can impact us emotionally and physically. The holistic approach which has been around for 5,000 years and was used by ancient Greek, Chinese, and Indian practitioners helps empower individuals to take charge of their own health.
The holistic attitude is the practice of evaluating the person as a whole, inside and out, analyzing the underlying causes of symptoms and then determining an individualized approach to reinstate and sustain health for a lifetime. One such approach is through an in-depth look into the eyes.
What Your Eyes Say About Your Health
Your eyes are as unique as you are! We’ve often heard the phrase that the eyes are the windows into the soul, but, have you ever considered the fact your eyes are a window into your health? The analysis of your iris is genuine and is referred to as iridology.
Iridology is the study of the colored part of your eye and is a useful diagnostic tool for identifying health issues. It offers insight into possible nutritional deficiencies, pinpoints locations within the body that may have an overabundance of toxins or inflammatory issues and is a picture of the overall level of health.
The iridology readings involve assessing the rings, spots, colors and various tissue layers within the iris and relating it to a specific area of the body. For example, liver issues would be reflected in the iris of the right eye in the eight o’clock zone, since the liver is located on the right side of the body. The colorations of the iris directly correlate to the health of various bodily organs and functioning systems. With more than 300 thousand nerves within the body having a direct connection to the optic nerve, many health issues are visible in the iris.
The diagnostic technique of iridology provides insight into the potential underlying causes of symptoms, which may include lifestyle changes, methods of alleviating stress, diet and nutritional changes as well as other natural and alternative treatments.
Alternatives to Modern Medicine

After all, the holistic approach has stood the test of time across several cultures in addressing the body, mind, and spirit as a whole.
