Someone said that the iris is the living image of what the eye has been, what it is today, and even what it can become. “The iris is like a chalkboard which does not get erased.”Iridology (pronounced eye-ri-dol’-ogy) is the science of studying the iris or the coloured portion of the eye. Based on empirical observations, made by medical doctors and other researchers over the last 300 years, which suggest that certain dysfunctional states in the body are indicated by different textures and colour properties within the iris. It is useful for preventative health because these imbalances in the body can be detected early on, giving time for adjustments to be made using natural therapies.
Jennifer Thompson is one such practitioner, and the visions she sees dancing through the windows to your health can be quite awakening.
Originally, Jennifer was trained and schooled as an Environmental Systems Engineer, and left the American corporate arena in 2001 to discover the meaning behind life, and who she really was as an individual. She always wanted to be a Park Ranger. So she became one. She had an impulse to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in the times when it was not common for women to undertake such a task, and she reached the peak of her desire. Then it was a 6-month bike trip across the U.S.A., from Georgia to Maine along the Appalachian Trail. Little did she know that her life was beginning to reach the parallels of her healing journey.
New Zealand tasted her sweat, and then in Australia this hard-core extremist fell ill. It was here that she first witnessed the insight that can come from Iridology. She visited a practitioner, who discovered that her eyes were two completely different colours for a reason. Jennifer knew that she was ill, the rashes, lack of sleep and 2 ½ years of discomfort had stopped her from vanquishing the physical challenges of the planet. It was the reason why, that she could not master.
You have that look in your eye…
Jennifer’s encounter with Iridology saved her from a long and drawn out life of misery. She wasn’t in any danger of dying from her illness; she was in danger of being conquered by the fear of it. Now she has taken a different approach to life by becoming a Comprehensive Certified Iridologist CCI, through the International Iridology Practitioner’s Association IIPA. Today Jennifer changes other people’s lives working on the isle of paradise as a Motivational Speaker, teaching workshops and retreats, focusing on personal detox, raw food coaching, runs green smoothie classes and holds private Iridology sessions.
She makes it clear that her work does not confirm, discover nor treat disease, but it is a scientific means of discovering what your body needs to recover, and what it is missing that is essential to your health. She makes her clients focus on what they need to do when they get home and are away from the comforts of a holiday rest period, as well as how they can prioritise on things that are realistic to achieve.
Jennifer is more than just another health-nut or witch-doctor practicing holistic medicine on Koh Samui. Her observances are what your body is telling you, and as she looks into your eyes you might find yourself surprised at what she sees, and what she brings back from the windows to your health may be things that you somehow already knew.
