This course consists of an in-depth study of American and European Iridology, Natural Therapeutics, Nutritional Medicine, Herbal Medicine, Anatomy & Physiology with the Pathology of the Pathways of Disease, Practice Management training (where required), and a basic grounding in Homeopathy (the latter providing an opening for post-graduate training in this subject, if desired). NB. Doctors, nurses etc are exempt from much of the Anatomy & Physiology aspect of the course.
By the time you have completed the course, you will also be equipped with a full understanding of the application and benefits of Acupressure, Douches, Detoxification programmes, Fasting and other dietary regimes, Fomentation packs, Hydrotherapy, Linaments, Oxygenation Therapy, Parasitic Detoxification, Poultices, Reflexology, and Cleansing programmes of the Intestines, Liver, Gall-bladder and Kidneys. Plus much, much more in the way Nature and ancient arts offer us effective treatments within the elements of air, water, earth and fire.
Other analytical techniques in the Curriculum include Tongue Diagnosis, Nail Diagnosis, Urinalysis, various Endocrine (hormonal) methods of assessment, Blood pressure and Blood assessment testing etc.
Sclerology training and charts are provided for the assessment of the patient, using the findings of the pointers provided by the sclera (the white of the eye) as determined by Dr Donsbach and other physicians.
The use of Pupillotonia and Pupil Manifestations provides a useful adjunct for the Iridologist, Osteopath or Naturopathic physician. College Director Peter Bradbury’s much sought after textbook on this subject is included in the course material.
There are 19 modules, which may be completed within 24 – 36 months though students may, within reason, work at their own pace. Students already running their own practice may be exempt the final, Practice Management, module (No. 19). Part-time attendance, amounting to 180 hours (depending upon the individual student’s previous experience), is required at Workshops, Seminars and Clinical Training. 10 Case Histories, to include Follow-up Assessments over a period of 3 months, are required to be submitted at various stages of the course.
Workshops and Seminars are usually held in Central London (convenient for Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross stations), generally on Saturdays and Sundays. Several options for Beginners, Intermediary and Advanced students are offered throughout the year, allowing for a considerable degree of flexibility.
The Clinical Training may be taken with the student’s nearest, qualified practitioner, or spread out with a number of practitioners for wider experience. Overseas students need to discuss the necessary attendance criteria with the College principals prior to application.
Successful completion of the course, to include a written and practical examination, leads to the Diploma in Naturopathic Iridology, with the entitlement to use the designatory letters DNI and eligibility for membership of the Guild of Naturopathic Iridologists International, with the use of the letters MGNI and entry onto the Guild’s very busy Register, with referrals following enquiries by the public, periodic newsletter, favourable insurance cover, along with reduced rates for future seminars, post-graduate training, books etc.
“The Holistic Health College’s Naturopathic Iridology course was very thorough, and I would recommend it to any student interested in expanding their health analysis skills. Each study day with the Bradburys provided invaluable nuggets of information in a friendly and relaxed way. My health detective skills would be very limited without Iridology – it helps me to pinpoint the root cause of my client’s ailments every time and therefore, pick the appropriate treatments to help get them well very quickly. I would be lost without it.
Angela and Peter literally opened my eyes to the amazing world of Iridology, for which I will always be grateful. Thank you both.”

“The Holistic College’s Naturopathic Iridology course was a life changing experience for me. After reading just the first few pages about Iridology, I was hooked on this incredible diagnostic technique and I now couldn’t imagine being without it.
The course opened up a whole new career, apart from having m own practice,’, now a tutor in complementary therapies – all thanks to the generous way in which the Bradbury’s share their unbelievable knowledge and experience. I’ll always be grateful to you Angela and Peter.”
