The Palmetto Plant Eaters Club is free, open to the public, and meets monthly to teach and support whole-food, plant-based eating. The Club will host Amy Spadafora-Thompson as its guest speaker on Wednesday, September 5th at 6:30pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Lowcountry building at 110 Malphrus Road in Bluffton, SC. She will be discussing Iridology and how this methodology is used to interpret the map of unique inner ecology through the iris which reveals how the body is functioning in the present. Each iris shows constitution type, strengths and weaknesses, toxin accumulation, inflammation, the over and underactivity of systems, organs, and glands, and the degeneration of tissues. A welcomed insight for education in one’s practice of self-care and personal wellness empowerment can be gained through understanding and utilizing Iridology.
