The collarette is a highly specialized fiber in the iris. It was formerly known as the autonomic nerve wreath. The collarette reflects the genetic predisposition of both the nervous system and the intestinal system (intestines and colon). It is important to remember that genetic predispositions, as seen in the irides, do not guarantee physical outcome. A person may have a collarette that portends health issues, but superior attention to nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle may mitigate those health issues. Conversely, a person may have a collarette that seems to be perfect, but the duress of poor diet and lifestyle have created a multitude of collarette-related symptoms.
When we analyse the collarette as an intestinal indicator, we look specifically for three traits: placement, shape, and quality. Each of these traits provides lots of information about the genetic build of the small and large intestine.
Whether the collarette is tightly hugging the pupil, just approaching the stomach ring, or distanced from the pupil speaks volumes about the genetic predisposition of the tone of the small and large intestines. The tone of these organs affects bowel transit time, stool texture/shape/size, and predisposition to cramping and bloating, among other things.
If the collarette is smooth or jagged, or has squared corners, or has pieces missing, it tells us more about bowel and intestinal predispositions, some endocrine functions, and impacts that are able to exert different kinds of influence on other organs. Understanding the implications of the shape of the collarette can help us ascertain whether a person is more likely to be prone to intestinal spasms, gas build-up, or constipation.
Additionally, the quality of the collarette – whether it is thick and ropy, thin and wispy, absent or obscure suggests how easily irritated the intestinal tissue is. Irritated tissue handles nutrient assimilation poorly.
The collarette can shed a lot of light on health and function predispositions of the large and small intestines.
