Iris Constitutions
Presented by Anthony Flores
The Three Major Iris Constitutional Types Based on
1. The blue lymphatic constitution

2. The mix biliary constitution

3. The brown hematogenic constitution

Lymphatic Constitution
Iris Characteristics:
This is a blue, blue-gray, or blue-green iris, often with a white collarette. With tightly or loose fibers with many lacunae. Pigments of various colors may be be present with this iris constitution.
Potential Tendencies:

Mucus arising from an overactive lymph system
Overactive immune system
Infection of the mucous membranes
Common reaction sites: tonsils, adenoids, upper respiratory, lungs, sinuses, genitourinary tract, lining of stomach, intestines, and joints.
Skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema, dandruff, dry skin.
Arthritis, rheumatic disorders, stiffness, and aching muscles.
Kidneys overstressed, adrenal weakness, thyroid insufficiency, and digestive weakness.

Health Suggestions for/Lymphatic Type

• Eliminate foods believed to be mucus-forming such as dairy products, wheat and sugar.
• Assist the lymph system by opening the lymph channels: colon cleansing, sweating, skin brushing, breathing exercises, drinking fluids.
The Biliary Iris Constitution
Iris Characteristics
This is a light brown iris with brown pigmentation in the anterior border layer with the underlying stroma layer reflecting a lighter appearance.
Potential Tendencies:

Liver and gallbladder insufficiencies.
Weakness in pancreas function.
Gastrointestinal disturbance and digestive errors, such as constipation, diarrhea, flatulence.
Blood sugar highs and lows.

Health Suggestions for/ Biliary Type

• Eliminate all heated oils and deep-fried foods. Eliminate animal fats and hydrogenated oils. Use good fats such as cold pressed flax, pumpkin seed, borage and olive oils.
• Eliminate refined white sugar and even honey, maple syrup, and fruit if blood sugar is out of balance. Do not use artificial sweeteners! Use stevia instead.
The Hematogenic Iris Constitution
Iris Characteristics:

A dark brown iris with a densely pigmented anterior border layer (upper layer of iris most visible) with little or no fibrous display. Microscopic examination will disclose lacunae with underlying fibers in certain sectors reflecting organ insufficiencies. Areas of irritation will appear lighter. Brown pigment in the sclera is normal in this type, especially around the iris edge. However if the pigment is dark and far from the iris edge, it has been suggested that this indicates possible liver congestion.

Potential Tendencies:

• Imbalance of blood composition, thick blood.
• Inability to store essential minerals.
• Constriction and hardening of lymph tissue.
• Disturbances in gastrointestinal tract: digestive, eliminative
• Tendency for anemia and circulatory insufficiency
• Glandular system disorders (thyroid, adrenal, pineal, pituitary, pancreas, thymus, gonads).
• Liver, gallbladder, spleen insufficiency

Some Health Suggestions for/ Hematogenic Type

• Avoid fried foods and heated oils and junk foods. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, soaked nuts and seeds.

• Get lots of minerals and liquid trace minerals into your diet.
Sub-types by Color
Lymphatic Sub-types (
blue iris
• Overacid
• Febrile
• Hydrogenoid
• Uric Acid Diathesis
• Scurf Rim

Overacid Subtype
Iris Characteristics
Blue Iris with whitish fibers
Potential Tendencies:
• Acidic body
• Arthritic tendencies
• Kidneys may require extra support
• Allergies
• Fibromyalgia
• Consider all of the characteristics of the lymphatic constitution

Health Suggestions for/ Overacid Sub-type
• Avoid over acid foods such as red meat, pork, dairy products, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, and citrus.
• Eat foods rich in natural sodium such as celery, strawberries, okra.
Febrile/Very White
Iris Characteristics:

Extremely white fibers, white blue, or according to Kriege, “steel gray”
Potential Tendencies:
• Acute, exudative conditions
• Tendency to have fevers, especially as a child
• Tendency for arthritis
• Tendency for respiratory infections
• Consider all of the characteristics of the lymphatic constitution

Health suggestions for/ Febrile Sub-type
• Drink lots of water.
• Eliminate acidic foods as described under over-acid subtype.
Iris Characteristics:
Blue or blue gray iris with small, white to off-white flocculations in the outer zone parallel to the iris edge. These are called tophi and commonly appear in the areas of the lungs, breast, neck, groin, diaphragm, head, and nasal areas which are specific areas of possible lymph congestion. Tophi may also appear around the collarette. When tophi are yellow or brown/yellow in color, this may indicate chronic congestion.
Uric Acid Diathesis/Whitish Plaques in Ciliary Zone
Iris Characteristics
: Thick white, yellowish white, or grayish white plaques interspersed around the mid-zone (ciliary zone) of the iris. Seen in blue and blue/gray eyes.

Potential Tendencies:

• Rheumatic or arthritic conditions
• Ghout or gouty arthritis
• Kidney inflammation, possible stones
• High levels of uric acid, tendency to reabsorb and retain excessive amounts of uric acid; inherent structural weakness makes for inability to tolerate uric acid buildup, therefore kidneys inflame easily
• Consider all of the characteristics of the lymphatic constitution
Health suggestions for/ Uric Acid Diathesis Sub-type

Eliminate all red meat and pork from the diet.
• Salt or intake of any inorganic minerals (minerals not from plants) should be avoided.
Scurf Rim Subtype
Iris Characteristics:

Dark distinct ring in the outer ciliary zone just inside the iris edge

Potential Tendencies:
• Suppressed skin elimination
• Skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema
• Kidneys over-stressed
• Tendency for poor circulation and cold hands and feet
• Consider all of the characteristics of the lymphatic constitution

Health suggestions for/ Scurf Rim Sub-type
• Skin brushing
• Wear cotton clothing that allows the skin to "breath"
Biliary Sub-types:

• Ferrum Chromatose/Tiger Striping
• Hydrogenoid

Ferrum Chromatose/Tiger Striping
Iris Characteristics:

Snuff tobacco like pigments forming bands of color similar to tiger stripes.

Potential Tendencies:
• Liver insufficiencies
• Digestive errors
• Possible difficulty with fat metabolism
• Possible difficulty with iron absorption

Health suggestions for/ Ferrum Chromaose/Tiger Striping Sub-Type
• Avoid fried foods and heated oils.
• Eat lots of bitter greens such as kale, beet tops, cilantro, and arugala.
Lymphatic Subtype, Febrile / Overacid
Hydrogenoid Sub-type (biliary)
Potential Tendencies:

• Lymphatic congestion
• Fluid retention
• Allergies

Health suggestions for/ Hydrogenoid Sub-type (biliary)

• Avoid all mucus-forming foods, such as wheat, pasteurized cow's milk, and sugar.

• Follow all suggestions for the Lymphatic type.

Hematogenic Sub-type:
Hydrogenoid Subtype
Potential Tendencies:

• Lymphatic congestion throughout the body or in certain areas
• Tendency to retain fluids
• Weak digestion; difficulty to break down proteins
• Rheumatoid arthritis may be in family history
• Overactive immune system, may have allergies to certain foods, dusts, pollens.
• Consider all of the characteristics of the lymphatic constitution

Health suggestions for/Hydrogenoid Sub-type
• Drink lots of water.
• Skin brushing is important.
• Follow all suggestions for the Lymphatic Type.
Thank you
Iris Characteristics:
Brownish colored flocculations called tophi in the periphery of the iris. Dark coloration of tophi in a biliary iris does not necessarily depict chronicity as it might in a blue iris
There is no Subtype based on color
for the hematogenic type
