DISEASE SIGNS OF THE ORGANS-DISEASES OF THE GASTRO-INTESTINAL TRACT: B. INTESTINAL ZONE

Stomach and intestines have their iris positions in the first major zone, directly around the pupil. In contrast to the other organs they are concentrically arranged, and take in a third of the iris.

When looking at an iris, attention is first directed to the stomach and intestinal zones. In health the stomach and intestinal zones are of equal size. They take in a third of the iris and do not differ in essential colour and structure from each other. This normal form of the first major zone is very seldom found in these days.

Disturbances of the intestines are recognised in the course and colour of the iris-wreath.

1. Dilatations of the iris-wreath are often seen. If roundish, they suggest an intestinal atony, and these usually stem from incompletely cleared catarrhs of childhood. Dark spots in the dilatations are indications that the intestinal glands are no longer functioning. Patients with these signs had many colicky pains as children, with a history of always wanting to drink cold water ( = intestinal scrofula).

If the signs are more honeycomb-like, then one speaks of’ ‘wormnests’. That is to say, that the patients have suffered from worms. If worms are suspected, then other signs are searched for: undue activity of the pupils, dark rings under the eyes, signs of worms on the tongue, in the nose, and itching of the anus, etc.

Pointed white spokes of the iris-wreath which take in the second large zone are signs of intestinal colic.

2. A white iris-wreath is an indication for inflammation of the intestines. This inflammation often extends over into the lymph channels, to the fifth minor zone (mucous membrane zone). One can then observe thick radiating white lines from the wreath to the fifth minor zone, in which white clouds or flakes also appear.

3. A contraction of the iris-wreath arises because of pressure from the outside, and can be caused by organ displacement (e.g. floating kidney, enlarged liver) or by a tumour. A downward depression of the wreath is a sign of ptosis of stomach or intestines.

4. An expansion of the large intestine field in the direction of the heart area (left iris 10′-15′, right iris 45′-50′) enables one to diagnose ‘Roemheld’.

5. Tumour and cancer signs.

6. All iris signs which originate from the pupil and traverse the iris-wreath indicate a participation of the central nervous system in the disturbed condition.

7. If in the left iris one finds an iris-wreath with a pointed serrated margin, a sign of weakness in the heart area, and an adrenal sign, then a vegetative dystony is indicated. The patient is full of inner disturbances, with troubles here and there, without it being possible to define a clinical condition.

8. A square-shaped wreath always indicates a grave and incurable condition. Pancreas signs are always then to be found.

9. The appendix area lies in the right iris—from 33′-35′, directly at the wreath. In inflammatory states there shows a white sign = acute condition, or a yellow sign = chronic condition. One often observes in this area signs of adhesions, which go out from the intestine and reach to the peritoneum. They arise after chronic inflammations, as well as after badly healed appendicectomies, and can produce considerable disturbance.

A black spike in the caecal area signifies that the caecum has become functionally incapable and shrivelled. Black or dark lines which go over or under in an arc, indicate displacement of the caecum. Very often it becomes adherent to the gall-bladder, peritoneum, ovary, Fallopian tube, etc.

10.Strong dilatations of the intestinal zone from 25′-30′ in the left iris and from 30-35′ in the right iris, enable one to recognise the tendency to hernia. The iris-wreath is broken through at the point where the rupture ensues. If pain also appears, then white clouds in this area will point to an inflammatory state.

Small lacunae inside the iris-wreath indicate a disturbance in the gastro-intestinal secretions, arising from atony of the stomach and intestine musculature.

11.Special attention should be directed to the S. Romanum (Sigmoid flexure) and to the rectum. In many cases, the area for rectum, left iris 32-34′, shows a white discharge-sign, as an indication of mucous membrane catarrh. Often, the iris fibres in this area separate from one another, and indicate a sign of commencing weakness ( = atonic constipation).

Signs for haemorrhoids are seen in this area in the form of small dark spots. Apart from this, one not infrequently observes a very dark brown neurasthenic ring, and indications of stasis in the liver area, as symptoms of a portal congestion. With haemorrhoids, one usually finds very wrinkled eyelids. Interrogation reveals that these patients must often rub their eyes because they feel as if there were sand in them. A later indication of haemorrhoids is the presence of 2 red fleck in the lower eyelid. The more this fleck lies temporalwards, then the more analwards lie the haemorrhoids. The more it lies nasalwards, then the higher they lie.
