Education in Iridology

Iridology is not the same as Iridology

During our seminars, we are often sorry to find out together with our participants that iridology is not everywhere the same, especially when introductory courses have been attended in which the sense and logic of the doctrine were not clearly understandable.

The reasons for these difficulties can frequently be found in the know-how of the lecturers. In many cases, the contents of various doctrines with different actuality are combined and copied for a seminar without having enough practical experience. Therefore, a logical combination of the different fields of iridology seems to be missing, questions cannot be answered or only frontal lecturing is offered in order to exclude any background questions.

Without a deeper study of the origin, coming-into-being and progress on this field and without any comprehensive practical experience as well as regular checking of its practical relevance, the doctrine of iridology will degenerate to a collection of single pieces of information.

Therefore, all our lecturers are therapists with an own surgery who know about what they talk due to their daily work with their patients and due to their awareness of possible therapeutic consequences. Besides, they are skilled trainers who are up to date and also dare to talk about overcome knowledge.

Our didactically founded teaching system has grown in several decades and its contents are regularly overworked an actualized. This can also be said about our comprehensive study material which is much more detailed than a regular lecture book.

Oriented towards the practice

Our training sessions are oriented towards the practice of Iridology whereby all theoretical knowledge is explained using actual patient files and first class photos. You will learn the steps from clinical analysis right through to recommended therapies.


Upon completion of each seminar, a training certificate will be presented with details of content explored in that section.

Assurance of Quality

The Felke Institute Iridology Training Course is part of the Assurance of Quality System (QSS) of the Union of German Healing Practitioners (Naturopaths). You will receive professional training points for each certified segment.



Every one of our lecturers brings with them the expertise of many long years in the practice of Iridology.

Training consists of these 3 Segments

• Introductory and Basic Teachings of Iridology
• Advanced Teachings (continuation from above)
• Training in how to use the Iridology Microscope and Iridology in your practice

Introductory Courses

The Introductory Course is ideal for someone just beginning with this rich material or for the practitioner wanting to refresh and actualize their current level of knowledge.


Practice Trainings

Under expert supervision, our Practice Trainings teach a systematic approach to understanding the disease process. These practical workshops take place both individually and in groups and teach the participants use of the Iris microscope.

Advanced Courses

Advanced courses are based on prior knowledge given in the introductory course and deal with complex inter-relationships between systems in the Iris, how they present and what they mean clinically.


Our Seminars in Iridology expand beyond the basics and bring in not only direct experience of how Iridology is used but also the leading edge of theoretical and clinical realizations based on actual case histories.
