Katie started Colon Hydrotherapy, known also as Colonics, as early as 1991. Her own health challenges along with those of her infant son were complex and involved the auto-immune system. A major source of health dysfunction started when systemic yeast growing inside her gut penetrated her intestinal tract and went into the blood stream. She was diagnosed with hormone imbalances, digestive system dysfunctions, infections from viruses and several bacteria strains in her blood and along with the yeast, and a tape worm among many other secondary symptoms.
Colon Hydrotherapy was a major part of her health protocol for recovery. Along with what little medical practices could offer, doctors reached out to the holistic community for innovative therapies and medicines including herbs, homeopathy, vitamin IV drips, a variety of supplements, cranio-sacral therapy, and Colon Hydrotherapy.
Katie turned her health journey into an opportunity to help others on their path by becoming a natural health practitioner and forming Healing Insights. For decades, she has lectured throughout the community, published articles, taught therapists, and provided a professional clinic for the practice of Colon Hydrotherapy and natural health therapies.
