Birgit Lueders, of BirgitCare and the Center for Iridology, will offer Iridology certification courses in March, April and May.
Iridology is the study of the iris, pupil and sclera. By using a special digital iris camera, a trained Iridologist can analyze patterns and identify underlying body weaknesses, strengths and genetic predispositions. Iridologists are trained to analyze the color and structure of the iris to identify emotional, physical and spiritual strengths.
“Each iris comes with its own unique pattern of colors, fiber density and structures, and each unique pattern represents certain energy within different body systems,” explains Lueders, a Master Herbalist and Certified Comprehensive Iridology Instructor—one of only 25 instructors in the U.S. certified through the International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA).
An Iridology certification can allow a holistic health professional to be more accurate with their client’s holistic assessment. To become certified through IIPA, one is required to take both Level I and II Iridology courses. Level I will take place at the end of March; Level II will take place at the end of April; and IIPA Test Preparation will be held in mid-May.
Iridology can be helpful for anyone whose work/ practice supports the holistic well-being of others, such as massage therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, holistic nutritionists, herbalists, energy healers and physiotherapists. Through Iridology, a holistic health professional will be able to assess areas within the body that need nutritional, energetic and spiritual support to maintain optimum health.
“Not only is the eye the window to your soul, but also to your health. Learn to become a ‘seer of the eyes,’” says Lueders. “This new health blueprint will be an eye-opening addition to any holistic therapy.”
No equipment will be required for the course, but digital cameras will be available for purchase. All participants will be trained on special iris magnifying lenses and the newest digital iriscope cameras.
“Healing with herbs and Iridology does take commitment and dedication, but it emphasizes healing the root cause—not just the symptoms,” says Lueders. “Only if we strip ourselves of old thinking will we be able to find other truths that can be of value for our whole life, health and happiness.”
Cost: Level I and Level II, $750 each; IIPA Test Preparation, $250; 10 percent early bird discount is available. For more information, call 484-222-1441, email BirgitLueders@gmail.com or visit CenterForIridology.com or BirgitCare.com. December 2015.
