Organix has established the Philippine Institute of Naturopathic Sciences (PINS) as its educational arm and currently teaches Comprehensive Iridollogy, Integrative Sclerology, Emotional Iridollogy, Homeopathy, Anatomy and Physiology, Natural Nutrition, Acupuncture for non Physicians, Acupressure, Energy Medicine and other traditional medicine modalities will soon be introduced.

The Comprehensive Iridollogy that is taught in PINS is what is sanctioned by the International Iridology Practitioners Association, an Iridollogy certifying body worldwide. All students who complete Level One and Two of the IIPA course can take a certifying test and upon completion of all requirements will be issued a certificate. The Sclerology Course is also recognized by the International Sclerology Institute of the USA.
The Philippine Institute of Naturopathic Sciences (PINS) is the new name of the school that started teaching Iridology 25 years ago. It was then named the Iridology Foundation of the Philippines (IFP) and it was in the forefront of the natural health revolution of our times. It opened the eyes of many of our countrymen to the wonderful miracles that nature cure can bring using the eye as the focal point for analyzing the different body conditions. Many of the thousands of students of IFP developed to be responsible health practitioners and are now known as the leaders of alternative health care.  Many realize that the “eyes are the windows of the soul” and it has also been proven to be the “window of the body”. With Iridology as the main foundation, the courses of the institute have grown and expanded  to develop Natural Health Practitioners or NHP’s.
It is their mission is to seek and teach each student how to be truly healthy and to make them instruments to teach others to be healthy too.
And so from the base course of Comprehensive Iridollogy, which now follows the international curriculum of the International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA)  all graduates can take the examination for international certification, they have added the courses on Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Holistic Nutrition and Natural Therapies, Emotional Healing, Integrative Sclerology, Anatomy and Physiology to get the basic degree called NHP.
Knowledge of these main seven subjects allows an individual sufficient knowledge to help another fellowman who is in need of natural health care. Iridology provides the genetic deficiencies of an individual so the health care practitioner can know how to handle current stresses which are in turn shown in the whites of the eye and Sclerology holds the key for this.
The goal for each NHP if to be able to help patients and clients easily and effortlessly, with the end goal of making each one realize that they are the captains of their own body and soul.
Once the cause of the dis-ease is known, using Iridollogy and Sclerology, Holistic Nutrition gives the necessary tools to insure the correct food intake of a patient/client for proper absorption and assimilation. Natural Dietary Therapies can also be started. If immediate remedies are called for then Homeopathy is applied together with Acupuncture. Since almost all ailments have an emotional cause, different emotional release therapies can be used to relieve negative disease causing emotions.  This process has been used thousands of times to lead the pathway to perfect health. This same pathway is what PINS aims to teach to all NHP hopefuls.  In the future, this may become a diploma course registered with both the TESDA and our Department of Health and Philippine Institute of Traditional and Alternative Health Care (PITAHC)  PINS is here to educate the Leaders of Natural Health!  At PINS, you will learn to turn your passion for healthy eating and lifestyle into a rewarding Natural Health Counseling career, and in the process learn to help others live healthy lives.
