Jim has 35 years of experience in the field of education both as a teacher and as an administrator at the secondary and collegiate levels. He entered the natural health field, beginning with his study of the martial arts and exercise science, while seeking a way to overcome chronic back pain. After succeeding at learning natural methods to eliminate 14 years of chronic back pain, he turned his interest to Oriental approaches to health by studying medical qigong. When confronted with a diagnosis of prostate cancer, God called him away from conventional forms of treatment and lead him down the path of alternative health practices. He was successfully healed of the prostate cancer.
Dr. Robertson realized that there was a need to share with others the knowledge he gained while overcoming his own health challenges. So, he and his wife Melanie (a certified yoga instructor) formed Natural Health Consulting, LLC in August 2002. Natural Health Consulting is an educational ministry dedicated to the belief that our bodies were created with the ability to heal naturally if provided the right ingredients. Natural Health Consulting, LLC’s mission is to help others “build health through knowledge” by teaching them to understand the workings of their body, helping them to determine their body’s needs and guiding them to provide those needs as God had intended. Dr. Robertson's practice became the first branch of King Institute in 2008.
Together, Jim and Melanie lead a Bible Study class for 25 young couples at the First Baptist Church of Sebring, where Jim formerly served on staff as Director of Education. They are both accomplished folk musicians and enjoy performing. They have four children and three grandchildren.
