In the iris the colarette appears as a visible band of a slightly different colour that encircles the pupil. Also known as the Autonomic Nervous Wreath, this band provides information about the nervous system; when smooth and round there is often a balanced approach to life, when erratic there is often a tendency to be more reactive, there may also be intolerances and allergies.
In his research John Andrews has found that in a restricted colarette – one that is closer in its position to the pupil, there is a tendency to have reduced natural killer cells (and therefore reduced immune function). There is also a frequent finding of lowered zinc levels and caffeine intolerance as well as an emotional tendency towards pessimism.
