Karyl, who is also known as Gene, was born and raised as the oldest of four children in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born in 1950, he was brought into a long line of auto mechanics, but chose from the age of four not to go into the family business. Even then, his mind was occupied with science, medicine, and the workings of the human mind and body.
In fact, it was from an early age that Harkins began to read books by Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and various scientists and astrophysicists, developing his interest in scientific inquiry. In New Mexico he was exposed to Native American culture, including Native American medicine and the use of natural healing herbs—all of which points toward what he does now, as a homeopathic healer.

He also put his mechanical and scientific mind to work fixing cars, doing this to raise money.
During the 1960s, there was an ongoing cultural obsession not just with mysticism and with natural medicine, but also with Native American culture—all of which fed into young Karyl’s growing obsessions. New Mexico offered much philosophical development and exposure to natural remedies and their applications. He immersed himself in this world and became increasingly convinced that the way forward, for him, was in homeopathic healing.

Natural Health, a Doctor of Natural Health, and a Doctor in Philosophy in Traditional Natural Health, with a heavy concentration on homeopathy.
