About The Guild / Becoming a Member

The Guild of Naturopathic Iridologists International has, since it’s inception in the 90’s, forged the successful integration of leading-edge Colleges and Courses within the UK, under the one umbrella organisation.

This has contributed to the Guild being able to provide the largest Register in the UK of professionally-qualified Iridologists, giving the public much needed protection from lacking sufficient training to reliably interpret signs in the irides.

In 1996, the ‘Secretary of State’ conferred ‘International’ status on the Guild, reflecting the contribution the Guild has made to worldwide scientific research into Iridology.

All Full and Associate Members have at least one therapeutic qualification in addition to their recognised Iridology Diploma and have professional indemnity insurance cover.

Aims and Objectives

The Guild is the only ‘umbrella’ organisation for Iridologists in the UK.
It was created by the general consensus of professional Iridologists of many years standing, who wanted to see:

  • the protection of the public and prospective students established
  • the provision of post graduate training
  • the enforcement of a ‘Professional Code of Ethics’ and a ‘Constitution’


The Guild was established to ensure that services of the highest professional standards are provided to members of the public. Student members are offered training of the highest integrity.

The Guild offers three levels of membership; Full, Associate and Licentiate.  To join the Guild please fill in the attached GNI – Membership Application Form Template and mail to our Registrar on gniregistrar@gmail.com.
