Iridology represents a physical reality - the irises are the only original brain tissue that meets the outside world! They represent the control panel that communicates with the disciminating hypothalamus in a two way connection. We are born with an Iris Print Mandala that reveals invaluable information about our physicial, emotional, social, mental and spiritual behaviors as well as our strengths and weaknesses and our pathways to aging.
Here is the Lymphatic Sensitive Constitution, the Iris Print Mandala for the Heaven on Earth person that mirrors the function of the lymphatic system in that they always imagine a perfect world and try to create it in every situation. This duality identification with imagined perfection may lead to judgement or activisim, or to alignment with nature, beauty, community where they feel safe and can be at ease.
Herbs of Grace – Becoming Independently Healthy by Farida Sharan (available at amazon.com and soon on ebook and kindle)) provides information on all the Faridian Iridology Constitutional Types. Iridology – A Complete Guide is currently being revised and updated.

This personality reflects the quality of the lymphatic system. They have ideals of harmony, peace and purity, a heaven on earth idealistic vision. They feel kinesthetically the suffering of other living beings, the decimation of wildlife, and the pollution of the planet. They work tirelessly for causes and have difficulty saying no. When they become depressed they wallow in emotional toxicity. Harmonious beauty, music, art or literature lifts their spirits and inspires them. Because they are greatly affected by the environment, they need to surround themselves with beauty and harmony, especially in the home and work environment.
Challenge: Because the tendency of this type is to hold on to toxicity if there are difficulties, it is essential that efforts be made to learn to release, to let go and purify on all levels – physically, emotionally and mentally. Whenever this type holds on to toxins or unexpressed emotions, the lymph becomes congested and affects the entire body. The nature of lymph is to flow, to purify and to circulate throughout the entire body, restoring balance, harmony and purity throughout the tissues. These type needs to learn to say no, not to overload their systems, and to discriminate carefully as to what they allow into their life.
