Ellen Tart-Jensen has produced a wonderfully warm, rich, and exciting piece of work accessible to all in the natural health and conventional medical fields, whether involved in iridology or not. This book has helped fill a void in natural health and iridology history and is to be cherished for conveying that the rich tapestry of iridology history mirrors the rich tapestry of the iris itself. --John Andrews, MH, Ir, MGNI It's marvelous to be able to trace where the roots of our knowledge originated. This book speaks to the heart and provides a loving connection to and recognition of our forefathers. It shows us that the history of iridology is still alive in the souls of new generations through the added research that they bring. --Daniele LoRito, M.D. To have been a friend and patient of Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., a pioneer of iridology in the United States, was truly a blessing for me! With her life dedicated to carrying on his legacy, Ellen Tart-Jensen, in her new book, is doing just that . . . and more. Her book is a "must read" for all of us who want to live LONG and live STRONG! --Gavin MacLeod, American Film and Television Star
