hydrogenic constitutionFringe medicine
A type of constitution of the iris (blue eyes), which, in the construct of the pseudoscience iridology, belongs to a person with many features of a person with lymphatic constitution. Those with hydrogenic constitution are believed to have more chronic disease and lower resistance to infections; the hydrogenic “type” is believed to be susceptible to rheumatic disease, bacterial infections, and fluid and toxin retention by the kidneys.
