Scam alert! Iridology and weight loss!


You want to lose weight but those traditional low-cal diets are simply not working! You are bored of listening to the same old story. You want something new. Well, the latest trend in the weight loss field in Lebanon is Iridology. What is it and how is it related to weight?

One piece of advice: read the entire article because it might look exciting at first but I’m not sure the ending is very promising!

1. What is iridology according to its masters?

Iridology is the study of the 'Iris', the colored part of the eye. By analyzing the unique combination of pigments and structure within the iris, a picture of your health emerges.

The various shapes, markings, discolorations, textures and other manifestations are used by iridologists to analyze pathologies, hereditary strengths and weakness, drug settlements, tissue destruction, nutritional deficiencies and biochemical imbalances. The iris reveals inflammation that may or may not be causing immediate pain. 

These signs and symptoms may be something you have experienced in the past, may be experiencing now, or you may experience in the future.
The eye is connected to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the brain and nervous system.  Nerve fibers in the iris respond to changes in body tissues by manifesting changes in its structure and coloration.

This technique actually provides a veritable microchip of information. And it is considered a very important part of preventive medicine as it allows you to identify weak points that may cause disease in the future.
The iris analysis does not heal anyone! It only provides an insight into ones-self. It identifies weaknesses and points out what your body needs in order to fight those weaknesses: herbs or supplements, certain foods, etc.
Iridology is an assessment tool, not a therapy. If you are feeling anything, you should consult with your physician.

2.   How is it related to weight loss?

Also according to its practitioners, iridology can find the reasons behind inability to lose weight. It could be a sluggish thyroid (that usually decreases your metabolism) that isn’t deep seated enough to show in blood test; it could also be digestive enzymes that are causing uncontrollable cravings; or maybe faulty salt absorption leading to decreased motivation to movement.

3.   Should you believe that?

Wouldn’t we love to believe that everything that goes on inside that body of ours is written in our eyes? Wouldn’t we love to believe that what we should or should not eat in order to have the perfect body is also written in our eyes? It’s an amazing dream; however, I’m not sure if it has come true with iridology. In fact, there are many points one can argue about this alternative medicine:

-      Iridologists operate in a gray zone in North America. There are no laws defining and regulating the practice. So basically it is neither considered legal nor illegal. And when we are talking about medical issues, this matter is risky!

-      According to the International Iridology Practitioners Association, you can take online courses in iridology. No need to be a physician, you can simply go ahead and become an iridologist. That sounds fishy, doesn’t it?

-      Studies about the efficiency of iridology were conducted and published in renowned medical journals such as JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) and BMJ (British Medical Journal).
          ·         In the first, 143 patients mixed between kidney-disease free and having a kidney disease were examined by 3 iridologists. “The likelihood of correct detection was statistically no better than chance.” So basically, the iridologists were not able to properly detect the patients with kidney disease. It was more a matter of luck.
          ·         In the second, 5 leading iridologists attempted to search for gallbladder disease in the eyes of 78 mixed patients (half of them suffered from the disease and the other half was perfectly healthy). Again, the results were close to chance validity. And the study concluded that iridology was not a useful diagnostic aid.

Concerning iridology and weight loss, I can assure you that you will lose weight once you do it. Surprised?
Well, my friend went to an iridologist and this is his menu for the day:
Breakfast: Turkey in pita bread
Lunch: Fish/meat/chicken filet with iceberg lettuce salad
Dinner: Palmito and asparagus salad
Now tell me, wouldn’t anyone lose weight to this high protein, low calorie diet? Save your 200 or 300$ and do this for free. Let me know how much weight you will lose. But most importantly, let me know how you will maintain this lost weight at a later stage because I’m sure that this diet doesn’t last a lifetime.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. However, some of those measures might just be a rip-off and a false hope. Don’t let yourself be the victim of desperation!

It was found that compared to a control group, the test subjects had significantly lower BFM, leading to the conclusion that long term CLA supplementation does reduce body fat mass in otherwise healthy overweight individuals. garcinia cambodia

You also have to pay care about the bezel. Divers have to see the amount time they've been under the river, so it is crucial that your diving watches have a very unidirectional passed timing bezel. A specific face in divers watches is vital also. The crystal clear face permits you to quickly look at the face in the watch and pay attention to your occasion. If you should not quickly check out your occasion, you Audemars Piguet replica watches may possibly overstay at the end.
