Sonja Macura qualified in Iridology in 2000. In 2003 she joined the GNI (Guild of Naturopathic Iridologists) as a full member.

Sonja's continual professional development within the field of iridology keeps her informed of modern research.

What is Iridology?

Iridology is the diagnosis of the body through the iris of the eye. This differs from eye diagnosis which is the diagnosis of disease affecting the eye.

In iridology the iris, or coloured part of the eye, reveals information relating to the organs and systems of the body. The transmission of information from areas in the body is transferred via the nervous system to the iris. 60,000 nerve endings make up each iris.

Sonja takes note of signs, shapes, and pigmentation in the iris, which she translates for a naturopathic assessment. Both irises are examined because each iris may reveal different information.

How can an iridology
assessment help?

The constitution of an individual reveals a blueprint which indicates areas that Sonja may support or detoxify.

Sonja ascertains the constitutional type and is able to understand the likelihood of disease pathways. While certain constitutional types may indicate different systems in the body that need attention an individual may present with a condition that requires special consideration.


Based on information from the iris, Sonja can formulate a treatment plan and raise the client’s awareness to their individual predispositions.

While Naturopathy treats the whole body, iridology may point to a certain area that may become the focus of attention. If the assessment reveals a tendency to disease we use preventative medicine and teach the client how to avoid the likelihood of disease by addressing diet and lifestyle.

Sometimes trauma may be indicated in the iris which may affect mental and emotional health as well as physical health. Such an indication may be the cause of disease and can be referred back to, so that the client may understand how their illness has been triggered.

If key problems are indicated within the body from an iris assessment we may refer to a medical doctor or recommend further diagnostic tests for a deeper understanding of the physiological problems.


NB. Iridology does not and should not replace any recommended treatment from your General Practitioner. Any medical conditions should always be reported to and discussed with your own GP.
