Hi, I’m Corrine Haselden. I’m a wife, mother to six children, a Functional Medicine Health Coach and Mind Body Expert. I am always seeking, always learning and I’m extremely passionate about sharing my findings so you can acquire the tools, resources and helpful information needed to support you in your quest to experience optimal wellness!
I am doing well in my life now but this wasn’t always the case. For years I suffered with a multitude of symptoms from crippling fatigue, heart arrhythmias, low blood pressure, headaches, to hair loss, low immune system functioning and nervous system imbalances. I received diagnoses of HPA axis dysfunction, Lyme, mold illness and autoimmune disease. Many of my symptoms were deemed to be ‘idiopathic’, short for ‘we have no idea what is wrong with you.’
Over a period of years, I visited with many practitioners of all modalities, spent over $100,000 out of pocket and nobody could help me. If I made progress at all, it proved to be temporary. I supported my body through natural means but refused all medications. The side effects were dangerous and in some cases, life threatening. I knew in my heart of hearts that there was a reason my body was struggling and I was determined to find it.
Enter Functional Medicine. With the proper Functional Medicine testing, we were able to uncover a multitude of imbalances in my body that needed correction. Following a true whole person approach, my practitioner advised me to address the areas of stress in my life because the stress was an obvious obstacle to my healing.
You see, as a mom of six, I was selflessly always giving to others at the detriment of me. Self care was absent from my life. I was pregnant or nursing for 17 years with only one four month break. Sleep? What was that? We also moved frequently and I was often on my own due to my husband’s job travel. I homeschooled and I ran a business. Are you tired just reading this?
To boot, I had messed up relationships all over the place. With the moves, I didn’t feel like I had a ‘home base’. There was zero stability. I was so busy trying to just keep my head above water, I not only lost connection with myself, but I Iost connection with my tribe. My social relationships were seriously lacking. Adding insult to injury, we were forced to leave our home all of our belongings as well due to toxic mold. Hello, financial strain? Is it any wonder why I was sick?
With the help of some fabulous coaches and mentors, I was able to stop viewing myself as a victim, own my life and take responsibility for my part in everything that was wrong, dream my big dreams and create a life that I love. I much prefer my life of design to my old life of happenstance. I am now living in an area that I love and I am connected to my tribe like never before. I now know the value in creating boundaries and I honor my body’s need to rest and recover. I am living my purpose and I am happier than ever. Can you guess what happened to my physical symptoms once I took hold of my life? I’ve gone from bedridden to thriving! That’s right. That old life that I was living wore me down to the point where I couldn’t even stand. But now, I AM THRIVING!
