Holistic Iridology Now Available Locally

Laura James

Laura James

Holistic Iridologist Laura James is offering holistic iridology assessments by appointment at CasaShanti, in Fort Myers. She will also provide free mini-iris assessments at Peace Day in the Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., September 20, at Jaycee Park, in Cape Coral.

A member of the International College of Iridology, a worldwide organization, James is skilled in the 3,000-year-old science and practice of iridology, which today is performed by digitally imaging both eyes. An iridologist then interprets genetic information contained within the iris, including the weakness and strength of organs, glands and other tissues.

Holistic iridology goes beyond traditional physical assessment, allowing the iridologist to understand mental, emotional and spiritual aspects and analyze for prevention of illness and disease at the root causes. Long-developing health conditions can also be analyzed by changes in the iris caused by lifestyle and emotional factors. The left eye correlates with the body’s left side, which is the feminine, creative, conceptual and intuitive side of us; the right eye, the body’s right side, more of the masculine, analytical, linear and practical side.

Locations: Jaycee Park, off Beach Pkwy. 4125 SE 20th Pl., CasaShanti, 2052 Cottage St. For more information or to schedule an assessment, call 239-431-9172, email or visit
