SCLEROLOGY is a little known modality practiced by only a handful of practitioners in Australia . It's recorded history goes back some 2000 yrs to the times of the ancient Babylonians and Chinese yet it has only been studied intensively in the modern era for the last 25 yrs.
Modern day luminaries in this field include Jack Tipps ND and Dr. Leonard Mehlmauer the later devoting the last 30 yrs of his life to researching the eyes. Gordon Carruthers and Beverley Bertram have been fortunate to have studied with both these men extensively.
Iridology is the study of the coloured part of the eye and it gives a lot of genetic information i.e. what has been passed on from your forebearers as well as information specific to body systems and individual organs. For example the levels of congestion and toxicity, inflammation and irritation.
Sclerology is the study of the white of the eye or the sclera. It too, allows us to study the individual organs and body systems, however it tends to be more of a status indicator for the body giving us some insight into the functioning of the organs and the history associated with those organs. In conjunction with this it allows us to see the interaction between organs and systems and to see the presence of parasites , bacteria and fungus etc as well as improvements in the health of organs and body systems.
In short these two modalities go together like Yin and Yang and when used simultaneously by a qualified practitioner elicit reams of information which may help us get to the source of your problems more directly.
Gordon Carruthers was and has lectured in both Iridology, Sclerology and Herbalism at Perth Academy of Natural Therapies and Paramount College of Natural Therapies.
