I am the mother of two wonderful daughters, Emma and Lisa, living in Philadelphia, PA.
I am a certified master herbalist, yoga teacher, iridology instructor, and wellness coach. I first learned the values of an organic herbal lifestyle in my home country of Austria (Vienna). Since 2009, I operated BirgitCare - a business focusing on health, wellness, and natural healing in Philadelphia, PA. Through BirgitCare, I offer personalized wellness coaching to support my client's emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being, by using modalities like iridology, herbalism, nutrition and Colorpuncture.
In 2012, I founded the Center for Iridology, where I am teaching iridology courses around the world and annually in major cities, like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia. In 2020, during the pandemic, I adapted my iridology courses for online certifications and was able to move my wellness coaching program online. Throughout the past 10 years, I have been a known speaker in her field at numerous national and international EXPO’s, while being consistently featured on radio and TV. After being a Fellow, a Diplomat, and the Vice-President of the International Iridology Practitioner Association (IIPA), in 2020 I became President of IIPA through 2023.
Jasmine D: Birgit was introduced to me by a close friend. After COVID. I suffered from severe hair loss and also an autoimmune disorder called alopecia areata. Doctors dismiss alopecia as just hair loss. But Birgit made me see how it was my body reacting to stress and the lack of good nutrition over many years. She gave some excellent herbal, dietary and lifestyle recommendations which I believe have helped me view food differently and change my approach to my health and I’m forever grateful. She was also kind enough to work with my budget and did not throw too many expensive supplements my way. She stays in touch and tracks your progress, mind you, you WILL make progress. Thank you so much for being a guiding light on my health journey and giving me some control over the direction of my health! I’m very grateful to have met you.
Pat Stewart, Pa : Birgit’s reading, surpasses the definition of an iridology reading. Physical imbalances as well as nutritional recommendations are delivered in a clear and precise manner. The spiritual impact is delivered in a method that delves directly into one’s soul. Birgit is an exceptional healer who reads the ‘windows to your soul’ like no one else. Her readings are informative, accurate and stimulating - like talking directly to your spiritual guides. Highly recommended for your soul’s survival
