Herbalist to speak at library
- Published: December 19, 2012
Local herbalist and iridologist Eric Rodriguez will give a free talk on natural approaches to winter health on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 6 p.m. in the meeting room at the Yellow Springs Public Library.
Rodriguez recently moved his holistic health practice from Vandalia to Yellow Springs. From his new office at 716 Xenia Avenue, Rodriguez analyzes his client’s eyes and dispenses herbal remedies to help them stay well and avoid disease. At what he calls the Culpeper House, Rodriguez offers services from iris assessments to personalized herbal tinctures. Appointments are available starting in January.
Rodriguez blends his own tinctures after learning about the health needs of clients. And he offers a new way to discover what ails people through iridology, which gives insight into one’s physical and psychological makeup on the principle that each part of the eye corresponds to a part of body.
“It’s a blueprint of what you’ve done in your life until now,” Rodriguez explained of an iridology scan. “It’s like a credit score.”
Next in Rodriguez’ monthly lecture series, on Jan. 17, is natural detoxification for the New Year, featuring ways to cleanse and tonify the body.
