A bit about Kim's HERstory: In 2012, when Kim Collins healed her aggressive breast cancer diagnosis through natural holistic means and diet, her life path was fully realized. Although she was already an herbalist and energetic healer for 20 years prior, she realized that there was a major imbalance in her body (physical and emotional) and begin on a deeper healing quest for herself, finally facing the energetic imbalances within herself that she had overlooked for too long. She declined the Western methods of cancer protocols such as chemo, radiation and hormones and instead healed her cancer holistically. Because of her own personal experience of healing her cancer naturally, others were curious and called upon her for help when their current western medicine had seemed to fail. She felt compelled to help others that seemed drawn to her commitment and natural ability to understand the many different holistic protocols that are used in treating all sorts of health deficiencies, not just cancer. For years she did this without charging a dime to help others through their health crisis. From this experience, Kim chose the path as a holistic health consultant and energy healer to spread the word of natural healing, speaking out against the over use of traditional toxic pharmaceutical therapies. She then later became certified as a clinical hypnotherapist and melds this into her energy work to help her clients heal on a deeper level, as she believes true healing happens when mind, body and spirit is balanced. Now Kim’s work mainly focuses on the shamanic healing arts with her clients, including Kambo, mapacho and plant medicine integration.
Kim is also a public speaker, independent researcher, retreat facilitator, Chakra Energy Healer, creative raw/vegan cook, juicing expert, “Zenterior” Feng Shui designer (available for interior design needs and vintage rug sales at LOTUS EYE INTERIORS and is an accomplished musician of 30 years touring the world with her husband and her band THE SMOKING FLOWERS. She believes that her Native American roots gave the foundation to her belief in the body’s innate God-given ability to maintain itself in good health when given an appropriate healthy environment, provided by our Mother Earth.
