Before I went raw, my eyes were a dark green hue with some brown specks and a freckle in one eye. Now, they’re a very light grey-blue with green hints and a brown ring surrounding my iris. Why did this happen? I was interested to find out, so I dug a little deeper…
I wanted to start off by saying that this probably sounds weird to a majority of the people reading this article. Just because my eyes changed colour doesn’t mean I didn’t love my eye colour before hand. This article isn’t bashing different eye colours, but simply explaining the transition of colour my eyes have taken since adopting a raw plant-based lifestyle.
So why did my eyes change colour?
The eyes are not only a window to your soul, they are also a window to what’s going on inside. The colour, clearness and clarity of our eyes is a direct reflection of how clear (and clean) our body is on the inside.
Dr. Morse (N.D., D.Sc., M.H.), a detoxification specialist, mega-healer (he has an 85% healing rate of success and has treated over 250,000 patients), and iridologist has made a series of videos on how raw diets can actually change the colour of your eyes.
Iridology is based on the scientific study of the iris (the coloured part of the eye). Like markings on a map, the iris reveals physiological conditions, health risks, challenges and strengths of various organs. For example, if you look at the chart below, you see that the top quadrant of each eye is related to brain health (specifically the cerebrum and cerebellum), and the innermost circle of the eye is related to digestion (the stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum).
A yellowish colour around your pupil is the main indicator of how toxic your body is, so less yellow means lower toxicity, and more yellow means higher.
When you think about the toxins and things that you are consuming daily, you can actually see it in your body through your eyes. When I was younger and into my teen years I ate a lot of chips, candy, sweets, pizza, and a hoard of other junk food. My mom always made home-cooked meals, but they were high in fat and didn’t contain the level of health my body required. I had major digestive issues, and became over weight at the age of 8 and well into the age of 15.
Our health begins in the colon, and when you are consuming foods that increase the toxic load in the body, you get “bunged up” to put it bluntly. When things are not moving efficiently and we become constipated, toxins build up in the colon due to improper elimination, and our eyes directly reflect this effect.
When I switched to a raw, plant-based diet, my digestion improved and irritable bowel syndrome symptoms went away completely. Adding in more fibre to flush out excess toxic waste, and learning to properly combine foods greatly helped improve the function of my GI tract. As I healed my body with raw foods, my eyes went from a murky greenish brown colour to a much brighter blue-green hue. The whites of my eyes also significantly cleared up, which is another major tell-tale sign of health.
Not only the colour changed, but different fibres of my iris have changed, and the freckle in my eye has completely disappeared. So I’d also like to make note that someone who is severely overweight (or underweight) and has blue eyes doesn’t mean that they are necessarily healthy. It’s not just about the colour, but the way the fibres are shaped. Some areas of an eye may contain a yellowish coating which can indicate sulphuric acid levels in the body and the level of acidity in the organs and glands. For some people, this yellow colour can cover the entire iris, which will make an eye appear brown or hazel, when the true colour underneath is green or blue.
The take home story of this article is that the cleaner you become, the clearer your eyes become, and the better you will feel. I still find it incredible that my eyes have actually changed colour, but really, it should come to no surprise. Your eyes are a direct reflection of your health, and after 6 years of being raw I can say that I have reached a level I never thought possible.
Not only are my eyes happier, but I am happier too! My eyes will probably continue on changing (as they continually get more blue), but until then, I will just trust in the process and allow my body to continue detoxing out the old and blessing me with the new.
