Hey, I’m Corrie and it’s kind of a miracle I’m sitting here to type this.
Not long ago, I survived a suicide attempt with a resulting coma and brain injury. My attempt was the result of lifelong trauma (CPTSD) which had never been properly addressed.
Much of traditional Western medicine approaches had failed me. And after being told I would be “mentally ill” for the rest of my life, I got creative in my recovery.
I’d always been a huge health and fitness nerd (I am a NASM-CPT), but the second chance I’d gotten with life led me to research and experiment with off-the-grid biohacking and neurohacking protocols to rebuild my brain, body, and spirit.
I combined my understanding of how my body evolved with where medicine and science are going in the future, but I couldn’t forget the spiritual element, too.
The most important knowledge that I’ve gained is to filter every health and recovery approach through a trauma-informed lens. Most people, and certainly most women, have some form of trauma. The health and wellness industries, along with self-help and spiritual practices, aren’t usually trauma-informed. Even our dating and relationship advice isn’t often trauma-informed! And since trauma has very distinct results and patterns in the female body, brain and spirit, most of what we learn and use doesn’t work as well as we would like- because it doesn’t address the roots of our trauma.
My mission is to empower women to be in compassionate and curious relationship with their resilient, amazing bodies, and to find their own path to wholeness.
