Iridology is so rewarding.
Prior to seeing the health questionnaire or asking the client why they are seeing me for a Holistic Health Consultation, I take a macro photograph of their eyes and begin to note what I see using Iridology.
Iridology is both an art and a science that dates back further than Western Medicine into the times of Ancient Egypt. By studying the fibers, patterns and colors of the iris and other parts of the eye, an overall picture of the health of your body‘s tissues and organs can be made. Inflammation, toxins, injuries, circulation, degrees of healing, the under or over functioning of organs and so much more can be seen by the trained Iridologist.
The first thing out of my mouth with a recent client was, "Wow, I'm seeing a significant back injury/trauma spanning the entire middle region and radiating into the shoulders. Have you ever injured your back that you know of?"
Her reply was followed by an immediate belief in Iridology. She said, "I was hit by a semi-truck only 3 week ago and my entire back is injured. It hurts so much."
I proceeded to point out additional ailments and diagnoses she had received by medical tests in the past. Your eyes show so much more than you realize.

San Luis Obispo County wellness business owners-
Throughout the months of August and September, I'll be touring various businesses offering mini-iridology sessions. Kind of like traveling chair massage, but Iridology instead.
Currently, my list includes businesses who refer clients to me for allergy relief or holistic health coaching, but I'd love to go to some new places as well. Let me know if you are interested in hosting.
Whenever I offer Iridology sessions at my booth during Wellness Faires, I'm booked solid the entire day with hardly a break to make some tea.
Not familiar with Iridology? Here's an excerpt from my website www.WellnessByMotherNature.com:
"During a mini-iridology assessment, Coach Stephanie photographs your irises and asks a series of questions related to your genetic and personal health history. A few dietary and/or supplemental suggestions will be written for your consideration.

Please contact me if interested in hosting or if you are a client of a local wellness business that you think I should visit.

This blog is on the many avenues that interest Coach Stephanie. Subjects are a vast array of hobbies, career, desires, coaching and lifestyle.
"I am here for support, guidance, education and as an example of what works for ME. What works for me may work for you or at least provide you with a starting point from which to explore. I am discovering what works for me at every moment. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do feel I have a teaching and healing nature with which I am here to share. In this blog, I offer you a view into my practice of being that which makes my experience - MINE."
Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner, Stephanie Austin, was guided into holistic living in 2002 when she was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis, an uncommon autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscle.
Opting for education rather than medication, Austin enrolled in a Holistic Health Practitioner program in 2004 after realizing she'd been gifted with disease so that she may learn to heal herself and later teach others to do the same.
Since her education, Austin has released over 60 pounds and conquered years of junk food addiction through holistic healing and nutrition techniques that she now passes onto others through her business, Wellness by Mother Nature.
Austin has been the Director of Education and Board Member for the nonprofit organization, The Wellness Kitchen. She is the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award from www.ACHS.edu.
Austin is an author, coach and speaker who empowers people on the healing value of nutrition and the innate self-healing abilities of a body in balance.
She has helped hundreds of people achieve balance through methods such as meditation, herbs, movement, supplements, aromatherapy, homeopathy, nutrition, mind-body connection, energy healing and by closely listening to the needs of her clients.
It is awareness that brings change, not your effort. Why does it happen through awareness? - because the awareness changes you. And when you are different, the world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world, it is only a question of creating a different you. You are your world; so if you change, the world changes.
