Possible PCOS Iridology Signs, Hazel

This article is posted to help in your study of possible PCOS iridology signs in a biliary iris.

by Judith G. Cobb, MH, CI, NCP

Common features of a biliary iris

Hazel eyes, which are also known as mixed or biliary irides,
often express a predisposition to many types of
imbalances, including liver, pancreatic, and blood sugar

Possible PCOS iridology signs

When we see orange in an iris we ask about blood sugars.
When we see brown we ask about liver. When we see both
in a woman of reproductive age we look a little deeper and
wonder about fertility issues.

PCOS is becoming an epidemic. The full name of this condition is PolyCystic Ovarian
Syndrome. 1/5

Since I specialize in infertility and high-risk pregnancy work, I attract a lot of clients who have
been diagnosed with PCOS. I’ve often sent clients back to their doctors for further testing when
I’ve suspected PCOS and have had the doctor confirm my suspicions.

PCOS is a part of the Syndrome X issue that was the ‘hot topic’ of the last decade. Both PCOS
and Syndrome X seem to be garnering less attention.

PCOS is a complex metabolic disorder that includes insulin resistance, hormonal imbalance
that affects/inhibits ovulation, and further hormonal imbalances that reduce or inhibit

Most women with PCOS will have irregular or absent menstrual periods. They will also have
reduced fertility; if they do conceive, they have a higher risk of miscarriage, often miscarry
repeatedly, and have an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy.

Aside from irregular/absent periods, they often, not always, struggle with excess facial and
chest hair, thin hair on their heads (including male pattern baldness), and excess weight
around their midsections. They can also have acne, oily skin, elevated cholesterol, and
hypertension, among other symptoms.

Why does this happen? Their diet has usually been one of refined carbohydrates that has led
to insulin resistance. I have, however, been seeing more PCOS in women who have nearly
perfect diets and lifestyles, suggesting that environmental contamination with xenoestrogens is
at play.

Another possibility is that the pituitary gland may not be functioning totally well. While we may
see pituitary iris markers in some women who have PCOS, we don’t see them in every woman.
That simply underscores that there may be more than one cause of this complex condition.

When one is insulin resistant, excess insulin circulates in the blood stream. This reduces the
sex hormone binding globulin and allows testosterone to increase. This often leads to reduced
FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). Normal levels of FSH are needed to stimulate the
maturation of egg follicles in the ovaries. Without adequate FSH the follicles start to mature
and get stuck. These partially mature follicles produce androgens in the next menstrual cycle.
Androgens are easily converted into testosterone.

The next hormone that is affected is LH (luteinizing hormone). This will often be elevated as it
is trying to trigger the release of an egg from the ovaries. Because the eggs are not mature, the
surge of LH does not stimulate the egg to release. The elevated LH also triggers an elevation
in estradiol, which often stimulates weight gain. 2/5

Additionally, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is often elevated. However, when it is not
elevated and we see lower than normal basal temperatures, we can suspect type II

I always have my women who want to increase their fertility track their basal metabolic
temperature (see Women who have PCOS have
temperatures that are usually on the low side with no consistency from one day to the next.
Their follicular phase will often have very erratic temperatures and be extended. If they do
ovulate (and a woman can have a menstrual flow without ovulating), the luteal phase may
seem normal, or it, too, may have erratic temperatures.

What to look for

What do I look for in a case history and an iris assessment that might suggest that further
medical investigation is warranted?

1) irregular periods, less than 9 cycles per year

2) late onset of menses
3) thinning hair on the head
4) increase of body hair
5) anovulatory cycles as indicated by basal temperature tracking
6) low temps that might suggest type II hypothyroid
7) pancreas markers of any description in the iris
8) thyroid markers

Case Background
Iris assessment of a woman who has a medical diagnosis of PCOS
