This article is a little off subject for me; I usually write about personal development form a different perspective, and normally don’t address health directly. However, a recent experience left me so utterly astonished, that I just couldn’t think of not writing about it.
About 4 years ago, a friend of mine had told me about a “little friendly guy” in North Kansas City, Missouri, that practiced something called Iridology. Having owned and operated and Hypnosis Center for several years, I was certainly open to listen to anything, regardless of how it may at first come across, but as he started to tell me about the theory behind Iridology, I’ll have to admit, it flew in the face of almost everything I had ever learned in my time as a nurse, and from the Naval School of Health Sciences.
If there is one things I have learned over the years though, it’s that philosopher Vernon Howard was dead on when he said, ” The truer the fewer” and that anytime I found something that might benefit me if it did work, and was shunned by most people, I’d better take a look. It was that attitude that had allowed me to benefit form methods that would eliminate someone’s phobia in less than 20 minutes, even though traditional therapy hadn’t been able to do it in 3 years.
Embarrassingly, it took me three and a half years to finally book an appointment and go see Master Herbalist and world renowned Iridologist, Ron Logan. I arrived at his home office just before 10:00 am one Tuesday morning, accompanied by my wife Valerie. We were immediately greeted by a thin and extremely energetic man that by all measures appeared to be in his mid to late 50’s. You can imagine my surprise when I later discovered Ron Logan is 74.
After being seated in his office, Ron launched into what turned out to be the most entertaining two hours I can remember having in recent years. Ron Logan is not your “average” guy by any stretch of the imagination; the wisdom and pertinent details about your health are interspersed with a brand of humor that not many can pull off-but Logan can, and he does it masterfully.
I was quite surprised to find that Ron didn’t do any kind of health intake, or question me about my health, or my occupation. But I was also relieved. Since he didn’t know anything at all about my health, he was going to be getting 100% of his information from my eyeball. Iridologists theorize that the iris hold many clues to the state of ones health, and that an astute Iridologist can not only tell a great deal about the problems you may have had before, but can also get a look at the things that could turn into potential problems if not addressed.
At the end of my two hours with Ron Logan, he had successfully identified the following things about my health, none of which had been revealed to him before hand. He identified a “mild” mitral valve prolapse, that Dr.’s had been unable to hear with the stethoscope, and that had not been detected on an EKG. Only after I demanded an echocardiogram did my physician at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego receive “proof” of my MVP. Ron Logan saw it in my eye! He went on to detect that my right kidney, while functioning at a healthy level, was not quite as strong as my left one. I have had kidney stones twice, both in my right kidney. Later, he successfully identified a lumbar vertebrae injury; I had sustained a hairline fracture in the lumbar region while a student in the Navy SEAL training BUD/S in San Diego some 12 years before. “Your prostate is a little swollen perhaps” said Logan. “But it doesn’t appear to be a problem at this point.” Just one year before, when getting my annual physical, my Dr. had mentioned that my prostate was a little enlarged, but did not seem concerned.
Was Ron Logan just lucky? I’ve spent some time in Las Vegas over the years, and while I’m no mathematician, the statistical probability of Ron guessing those previously known by me aspects of my health would be an improbability of monstrous proportions. I was impressed to say the least. I later went back with my wife for her appointment, and sat amazed as I watched Ron perform the same “magic” with her, but this time, he found something that could have been fatal if not caught when it was; something that traditional medicine had failed to catch on a recent physical.
I don’t claim to know a great deal about Iridology, but I do know a fair amount about the human body, and this was something else that Logan didn’t know about me. Had he been full of smoke and mirrors with his statements about the human body and how it functions neurologically, and the workings of the endocrine system, I’d have known it in an instant.
If you’re up for something new and would like to find out more about your health in two hours than you have in the last 10 doctors office visits, you might give Ron a call. His office number in Kansas City Missouri is 816-587-4484
