The Byelorussian Iridological Association, a non-governmental organization (hereinafter referred to as BIA), was founded in 1998 for research in iridology and organization of iridodiagnostic examination of the population in Belarus.
Nowadays, the Belarusian Iridological Association (BIA) comprises 104 acting members (doctors of medical sciences, scientific research employees, practicing doctors).
The BIA is headed by Dr. Valery Serdyuk, an urologist, Doctor of Sciences (Medicine). He is the one in the Republic of Belarus who defended his doctorate on iridodiagnostics of urinary system.
The main purpose of the BIA is to contribute to the development of iridological and other newly-introduced methods of human condition examination and internal disorder diagnostics, to foster health and ecology protection.
The main line of the BIA activity is to implement scientific research, social, humanitarian programs on diagnostics and monitoring of human disorders and ecological and environmental factors influencing human health. First search for a disorder diagnostic method, which would be completely harmless and permit to lower radiation consequences on the people who suffered from the Chernobyl catastrophe, was carried out by the BIA members yet in 1986. Special attention was paid to an iridological method, which differed by a simple way of applying the same. It needed no expensive and cumbersome equipment. The only instrument, namely a BIS-1 iridoscope, which was in-house developed and available in hand at that time, permitted in a few minutes to make examination and estimate the status of human internals.
Several years of scientific research and studies were confirmed by the outputs of the doctorate, solely defended in Europe by V.K. Serdyuk before USSR-split, on diagnosing urological diseases by examining human iris status (a doctor’s dissertation paper on iridodiagnostics of urinary system diseases by V.K. Serdyuk, 1993, Minsk). Further research prompted and made it feasible to prove expediency of applying the same iridological method for diagnosing therapeutic, surgical, gynecological, neurological and other disorders. The studies, which had been carried out, allowed revealing the iridological marks, which enable a BIA-course-trained iridologist to determine diseases of most human internals, as well as stages of latent and subacute internal disorders, which are not even suspected of by individuals to the very moment a pain might appear. During last years the achievements were made to diagnose iris-examined symptoms, which helped to determine heritable predisposition to diseases of most human internal organs, cerebral vasospasms, eyesight impairment, rapid physical and mental fatigability, various stages of immune system deficiency.
A computer-aided iridodiagnostic method was developed, registered and licensed for practical application by the Ministry of Public Health of the Republic of Belarus (resolution No 29-803 dated June 17, 1998). In recent years, it has been further improved to carry out first research examination of the people, inhibiting various areas of the country, to detect special marks of human iris, which enable to diagnose oncology at the earliest stages of disease and cure it. The results achieved have been affirmative.
