Health ISI Sclerology vs RBTI

Part of

iss-bookcover-smallMy interest in sclerology comes from my RBTI background. As many know Dr. Reams used it in some of his classes around 1970, and used a self-made system for that. Sclerology itself is not something recently discovered: it has been used for at least a thousand years, and likely much longer. Still it seems that Dr. Reams could not find a map of the sclera so he made one himself. He used math and common sense. From what I have heard he only emphasized its use in case of heart stress (high UREA’s and high conductivity). From what I heard of attendees of those classes he also used it as a general indication on how well the body was progressing, but did not use the map that much for diagnosing any other stress. The question is a bit why.

In order to understand things a bit better I decided to buy the book ‘A course on the Art & Science of Sclerology’ by Jack Tips.
With that and the chart that are part of it, I tried to cross-match. The fun part is that the heart is spot-on, but that the other organs are not always as accurate. Makes me wonder a bit if Doc knew that the chart was not correct on those parts and if that was the reason why he did not use it more, and why he left it out many of his classes after he introduced it.

Dr. A. S. Wheelwright also studied Sclerology and eventually developed the modern variant of it. Dr. Jack Tips studied under Dr. Wheelwright and perfected the materials after the passing of Dr. Wheelwright. He writes that Dr. Reams attended one of Wheelwright’s first lectures. I can see that happen, but for all I know it may also have been the other way around. Both Dr. Wheelwright and Dr. Reams are not around to answer fight over that. Let’s assume Dr. Tips is right.

Dr. Wheelwright also did not come up with it himself, but got the crude basics from the native American Indians. But with trial and error and in time span of 10 years he perfected the system to be more accurate than it ever was in our history. Please do look at the chart below and compare it to Dr. Reams’ chart. And please click on them for a larger view.

Sure the heart is in the same place, but one of the largest differences is that the mind has little place in Dr. Reams’ chart where it takes quite some place in Dr. Wheelwright’s chart. But there are quite a few other differences. So which one should I personally follow? Like most others in RBTI, I think Doc was a genius, but considering the above and some other stories I heard, I do believe Doc kind of abandoned sclerology because he did not find his map so accurate and did not have the 10 years to perfect it. He prioritized some other things and knew his time was limited.

So, back to what I learned from the book by Dr. Tips.
First of all: it contains some things that go against my current believes, but by far not enough to put it aside and stop learning what knowledge he has to share. I also see a bit of room for improvement, and will try to take that up with Dr. Tips.
In general his book contains a tone that I kind of miss in most other teachings: that the body is an intelligent being and that it does what it can. Yes, I am aware that it is clear in some teachings, but in most you have to really look for it. While reading Dr. Tips book, I kind of have a home-coming feeling. I have tried to work out quite a lot of things with a changing group of people around me who added to my knowledge. In the end I don’t follow one, but have an opinion of my own. That opinion about what I believe is important in the health field is often not so much open for debate in RBTI, even though I believe it is in line with what the founder thought. Dr. Tips gives a very clear indication in the line of thinking he uses, but is subtle in his ways. It makes you feel as if he tries to embrace you in his ways, without a pushy feeling. Sure it is a textbook that uses plenty of difficult words, but it is written as light and as open as a textbook can be.

One thing that I discussed about with a member, is if a book can be worth the money. I paid a total of $ 229,- + shipping to Europe. What I got was a 444 page book that was slightly damaged caused by the shipping. And in case I wanted to resell it: to my surprise Dr. Tips made a nice personal note to me in it ;-). The book is a pocket / soft cover of which I could buy a similar quality for about $ 30,- in any store. Personally I don’t value books that much for their looks, but more for their content. Still, since it also supposed to be a desk reference, a hardcover would be more appropriate in my opinion.
If the content is worth it depends on your viewpoint and budget. If you have to skip meals to save for it, I have huge doubts. If you already have a test kit and Beddoe’s book and are looking to expand your knowledge, this definitely comes to mind. Of the hundreds of books I have read, maybe a dozen were truly worth reading. This is one of them. So I am not looking if the paper is overpriced or not, I look if the knowledge on the paper is worth the money for me. In this case it definitely is.

One of the primary things that Dr. Tips tries to make very clear is that the sclera should not be used for diagnosis, but more to see where stresses occur. He also emphasizes the need to understand the basics of our anatomy, so one understands that kidneys may very well encounter some stress from time to time, and occasional stress should not be of great concern. But a stressed spine is another story.
With images the different shapes of lines are identified and the different story these lines tell is explained. Those help to make things a bit more clear, but in some cases a better picture would help.

After a nice introduction, Dr. Tips starts telling about which parts of the eyes represent which parts of the body. He also clearly explains that the sclera is an indication of the place of the body where the stress is found. So if you have a person who’s lung region is slightly larger than average, the map of the sclera will be slightly off. Because of that he himself uses foot glyphology to achieve greater accuracy.

But we should never lose sight of what sclerology is: an indication of where in the body there is congestion of energy. Dr. Tips makes time and again clear that it is not a diagnosis tool for symptoms, but more a way of trying to find a cause. Well, at least where the cause should be found.

The form of the lines in the eyes are also explained into depth. What line shows a strong healing reaction, what line shows secondary involvements, what could point to infections and many other interesting information. But unlike some others, Dr. Tips makes clear that the eyes show tendencies, what may have happened, or what may happen. He emphasizes the need to understand what the specific type of stress indicated in the line may show in relation to the specific organ. Kidneys may form stones with a certain kind of stress. But with the same kind of stress in the stomach, we would all agree that there will not be stomach stones. Ulcers would be more likely.

After the elaborate introduction and explaining, there is room for a ‘round the clock’ section, in which the reader is taken through every part of the eye. There we find much more detail about the tendencies of the organs. What many will miss is the recommended treatment for each condition. In a way that kind of was a disappointment. But on the other hand, it is perfectly in line with what the book is about. It is a clear guide to where what kind of stress is. The treatment should be based on the best practice of the consultant. The book is already thick enough. I do like that it is focused on the ‘core’, not on personal interpretations. Sure at times it is clear that Dr. Tips is an expert in herbal remedies, but he tries to keep that out of it. Pure and simple is what the book is. Well, as simple as can be.

What I did miss in the book was a better section on the liver. Without having read it, I suppose ordering the booklet ‘Healing Triad: YOUR LIVER—YOUR LIFELINE’ would be a wise addition. It is mentioned a number of times in the book.
One other thing I missed is a printed sclerology chart. It can be found online, and is easily printed.

My personal conclusion is that sclerology as this book teaches is not a full blown alternative health practice. It is more a valuable addition to just about all alternative health practices. Since sclerology does not require expensive tests, chemicals or needles and can be done without any instruments, mastering it will be an asset to any practitioner.
