Legitimate criticism of conventional medicine
Among orthodox physicians iris diagnostics has no followers. On the contrary, physicians and scientists repeatedly point out that even the idea underlying iris diagnostics is completely wrong and devoid of any scientific basis.
There are no nerve tracts that connect the whole body to the iris. Color stains and different structures, which are supposedly important in iris diagnostics, are normal variations of the healthy iris and are not independent signs of disease.
Of course, there are many pathological changes of the iris. These include congenital "holes" in the iris, the so-called Iriskolomben, as well as malignant tumors of the iris. These changes are independent and not a sign of changes in other organs.
Iris diagnostics - reversed assignment?
The second major criticism of the school physicians lies in the assignment of the body halves to the iris. A direct imaging of the organism on the iris is therefore not possible, because the nerve tracts of the spinal cord overlap after entering the brain and thus run exactly mirrored.
The claim of the iris diagnosticians that the right half of the body is projected on the right iris, the left half of the body on the left iris, has no anatomical basis.
Warnings of the Scientific Advisory Board
Criticism of the iris diagnosis is also because the diagnostic bases are not uniform and in repeated experiments, the representatives of the different irisdiagnostic doctrines in the same patient came to very different diagnoses. The positions of the organs are found on the 20 different iris cards that are in circulation for diagnosis, each in different places.
The scientific advisory board of the German Medical Association therefore warns against this procedure and the variant of the pupil diagnostics, because misdiagnoses are likely. Moreover, there are a number of cases in which misdiagnoses have led to the patient's death due to the diagnosis of the iris.
In several clinical studies it could not be proven that the accuracy of the iris diagnosis is higher than the chance expectation.
The health insurances also do not support this diagnostic procedure: In unison, they believe that the community of insured persons should not be burdened with the costs of a procedure that demonstrably does not allow statements about their state of health.
