Reuben Schwartz Amish Iridologist

Here is a bit more information on Reuben Schwartz Amish Iridologist.  I had heard of him a long time ago.  In the busyness of life, I just let the knowledge slip my mind until my brother brought him back up.

This time, I did my homework.  I did some research and found great things about this man.  However, getting an appointment is not simple and takes time.  Patience is definitely a virtue.

At the point we saw Mr. Reuben, we had been on the Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome journey for almost a year.  Sadly, he had been really bad a few months earlier.  He had been in a wheelchair from about April 2018 to June 2018.  That June, we had been to our first naturopathic doctor.


I will post more on this treatment in another post.  So, by the time we got to Mr. Reuben, he was out of the wheelchair but still tremulous.  Frankly, I was curious.  The things I read about him were pretty good.

My Experience

I will not write too much about Hunter’s because he is not old enough to tell me his thoughts.  However, I will say that 2 people, thousands of miles apart, one massively educated and wonderful…the other not educated and wonderful…said the same thing.

Getting an Appointment

In order to get an appointment, I wrote him a letter.  This is the only way to get an appointment and assure you can get in to actually see him.  You can “show up” but those that have appointments get first priority.  If you show up, you take the risk of not being seen.  He is a busy busy man.

If you are interested in getting an appointment, you can email me with questions about my experience.  My email is  Also, you can write to him (this is a public record) and request an appointment.


Reuben Schwartz

1205 Radure Rd.

Hestand, KY  42151

Head’s Up

My GPS took me on down the driveway to the house at the end of the road.  That is his son, Abraham’s house.  Abraham is one of Reuben’s sons.  He is sweet…his family is pretty sweet, as well.  He told me that Reuben’s place is the first place, on the left.  It has a full-length front porch and the building is fairly new (compared to the other houses).  There is little to no cell signal once you get into Amish country.

Walking In

Pulling up and parking in the grass was my first moment to soak it all up.  We got out and there was a couple with several children sitting on the full-length front porch.  They have been going to Reuben for years, even before children.  Now, they come every year for a quick checkup.

We walked in and there were several people there, waiting.  See, you can just “show up” but first priority goes to those with appointments.  He has a predetermined amount of people he sees within a day, so keep that in mind.

Hunter explored and I took it all in while filling out Hunter’s paperwork.  I had no intention of him looking into my eyes.  Mr. Reuben came to the door and he is a thin, lanky man with a beautiful white beard.  His eyes were this piercing blue.  He smelled of Melaleuca and love.

Heading to the Office

I asked him how he came to do this.  He laughed and said that it had been a part of their community for as long as he could remember.  Also, he said that, when he was younger, he thought it was witchcraft and that he stayed far far away from it.

As he grew older and continuing to see this miraculous healing (he loves Jesus, by the way), he became intrigued and began studying the practice of Iridology.  Once he realized that history of it and the reality of how it was helping others, he dove right in.

Looking Into His Eyes

Now, he knew of Hunter’s diagnosis, though he had never heard of it.  Trying telling an Amish man to look up your Youtube channel.  LOL It was like a blank stare came across his face and you could hear crickets chirping.  He politely said he had never heard of the YouTube.  I laughed.  He laughed.

Once he looked into Hunter’s eyes, he said that he was riddled with parasites.  Realize I had just been to St. Augustine and the parasites were identified at that session, as well.  He said that he could see parasite scarring (where some had died) and then he saw active ones.

He smiled and said that my son was not going to die…we were going to get rid of the parasites.  With the herbs/supplements we got from him and the high/low-frequency acupuncture and bio-impedance we got from SonRidge, he will quit shaking.  I was in awe that both man, brilliant in their own rights, said the same thing.  Amazing.

Then It was Me

Once again, I took the bull by the … well … nevermind, I asked him to look into my eyes.  All he knew was my name.  The first thing he said was “when did you get your uterus out?”  I told him a year ago.  He said, “well, you still have your ovaries, right?”  I asked how he knew that and he simply said he sees it in my eyes.

Then, he put his crucible and little utility flashlight down and backed away from me.  He stared at me for a minute and he paused.  He said “Uhm, ma’am, your, Uhm, your ovaries…well, they are angry.  Do you have trouble sleeping, trouble with your moods, etc.?”  I said that I did and he told me he would fix that.

He then asked how long I have had dizzy spells (diagnosed with Meniere’s at 19 yr old), how long I had had high blood pressure, how my stress level was.  I mean he nailed me.  Everything.  I was blown away.

Herbs and Supplements

They are not cheap, but they last for a long while.  What they do not sell at the office, there is a little shop at the end of that road.  I can’t remember the name, but you pass it as you go up to Reuben’s.  They have the rest of what you might need.  Unlike Reuben’s, they do take a credit card and are super friendly.  They will tell you what you need and what you really don’t need or give you cheaper options.


Mr. Reuben is FREE.  He does have a donation box, in his office, if you feel led to donate any money for his time.  Also, herbs and supplements are not free.  They do not take cards, so bring cash, if you should choose to buy anything.

If you go back, you can take your empty bottle and they can fill that bottle back up.  They are big on recycling and the environment.  They also have some veggies/popcorn/jam and other things that they grow and sell in the office.


**I am in no way a doctor.  All I know about Iridology I have read/asked.  I am not telling you to go the route that we went with naturopathic doctors.  Also, I am not telling you to disregard your regular doctor, his advice, or stop taking your medications.  This is 100% my experience in my own body.  Also, it is my personal experience and knowledge with my son and his condition.  We still seek the care of our regular PCP and Neurologist.  Please seek out your doctor’s opinion, research yourself, and make an informed decision.  All opinions are my own.**

        It did get rid of the parasites that were wreaking havoc. That being said, there is scarring from them. Reuben did not see “activity” that last time (which was seeing him 3 mths after the initial visit). He did see scarring. His symptoms ebb and flow continually.

    how did you go about sending him a letter? just an informal letter requesting an appt with date/time options? did you have to wait for a letter in return to confirm appt?

    1. thebarefoothomeschooler

      I have the address listed. It took about 2 weeks to get a reply. Yes, I just asked for an appointment. Be sure and add good times for you if you are going to try and do this in a day. We stayed overnight because they gave us an early morning appt. Good luck!

      Yes, it is!!! Thank you for writing this. I will add it to this post. I think this was the first post Inhas done on Reuben.

      You are right, they are steep. One thing I did notice was when I asked they told me different options to keep my cost as low as possible.

      I appreciate you taking the time to read and mention them!

    Thanks for this post our 16 year old has an appointment Jan 10th. We are hopeful he can help. Our son has been wheelchair bound for a little over 2 years now. The medical field was never really able to help or find out the root of the problem so in March 2019 we started taking him to a holistic clinic where they started treating him for multiple things thru detoxes, supplements, diet change, HBOT etc. We have seen small changes but these have been very expensive for the little progress made we are hopeful he will walk again and hopeful he will be able to help him

      Good luck to you! Prayers for your son and your family. We have also been the holistic route. First with SonRidge Health and Healing Center in St. Augustine, FL (twice) and then with Reuben. We still do modern medicine with monthly IVIG, high dose steroids, and other things that have been done and are to come. He is out of a wheelchair, now, which we are very thankful for.
