This article is posted to help in your study of stress fracture iridology signs in a blue (lymphatic) iris. We’re diving deep in this article – so if you think this information sounds familiar, you may have read parts of it previously in the basic article. Keep reading if you want to get to the really juicy stuff!

Blue eyes – they can be vibrant blue, grey blue, violet, green blue, or cloudy blue. Today’s case is that of a teen-aged competitive dancer who has cloudy blue eyes.
Common Features of a Blue (Lymphatic) Iris
Blue eyes suggest a constitutional acid imbalance throughout the body. If the diet and elimination allow acid to build up, there is a greater predisposition to pain and inflammation. If there is also yellow (which points to kidney insufficiency), this increases the risk of acid imbalance.
In truth, there is not an actual ‘stress fracture’ indicator. However, the body predisposition of the cloudy blue iris (with yellow touches in it) to be over-acid is significant. In this case, the body will use all available calcium to neutralize the excess acid. The elevated acid can also draw calcium from the bones. Dancers, like all athletes, generate even more acid when they are working out. This creates an even bigger calcium draw, which can weaken the bones and retard healing.
As always, getting nitty-gritty details about eating habits, fluid intake, stress, rest, relaxation, recreation, supplements, and medications is vitally necessary.
Case Background – Iris Assessment of a Young Athlete
Weight: 120 lbs
Occupation: competitive dancer
Main concerns: stress fracture, constant fatigue
Details: This young client suffered a stress fracture six weeks prior to our first meeting. She also reported feeling chronically tired. She had recently had a sore throat for which she had taken antibiotics.
Her mother requested my help with nutrition for sport, supporting the healing of the stress fracture, and adrenal gland health.
Rx: Birth control pill for acne control, ventolin (infrequently) for asthma, advil over the counter for headaches (at least once a month)
