Why choose A Wellness Revolution?

Dear future coach,

 

 Hi! I’m Cathleen Beerkens. It’s great to connect with you here.

 

As I was working in the fields of nursing and education I have seen the reality of imbalances people struggle with on the mind, body and spirit levels. 

These imbalances, I’ve come to find, can all be traced to the same roots in this modern age we’re living in. We will get to that.

First, let’s get something clear right away- the earth is SHIFTING.

Is it normal to feel tired and have chronic headaches? Is it normal to have brain fog and have difficulty concentrating, and is it normal to have so many digestive issues? We need to take a look at this reality and ask ourselves, “Could we be doing better?”

 

How can we live out our full potential when we are not feeling well and fully alive?

Many can feel it, but for some of us, it can be hard to accept the changes we are currently experiencing on the planet.

The food we eat has been altered and is deficient in nutrition.  Many of us are experiencing nutritional deficiencies that are affecting our cellular health that we are not aware of.

The very foundation of our food has been altered and our cellular health has been compromised. Our culture, especially Western culture, also breeds disconnection between mind and spirit. This affects the base level of consciousness of humanity as well as how we function in our bodies on a daily basis. This disconnection is the root of all of our illnesses experienced on the planet today. We are disconnected from ourselves, disconnected from the earth, and disconnected from each other.

 

Now, there is some incredibly exciting news.

 At the same time, our consciousness is shifting on planet earth. Some of us are waking up to the reality that we create our lives on all levels.

Yes, this does mean that on some level we have allowed this lack of nutrition and therefore allowed this lack of cellular wellbeing. But it also empowers us to change it.

This Health and Wellness Coaching Course looks to the new sciences of Epigenetics and Glycobiology to help us answer how we can change our health for the better.

It is a very exciting time to be alive.

 

We can now begin to grasp that becoming healthy and treating ourselves well on a mind, body, and spiritual level is at the core of our success during the Earth’s shift.

Come join us on our journey to discover and explore what it means to live a life of thriving and not just surviving.

Come spend time learning what helping people in the new time on the planet looks like.

Come learn why holistic Health and Wellness Coaching is so important for the transition and shift in Consciousness we are experiencing.

Come- you are welcome here. You are in the right place. This is your sign, are you ready to begin the journey?

As the old systems are breaking down and the new systems are being created, people are in need of re-inventing not only the systems that no longer serve us by looking inward, we must re-invent ourselves to prepare for the next level. It’s really about re-wiring your brain for health, and this course will teach you how to do that, so that you can, in turn, teach others to re-wire themselves.

 

You are the way-shower.

Health and Wellness Coaches will be a critical part of helping people make these changes and adapt themselves to this most amazing time on this planet.

You are in the right place. You are just who the Earth has been waiting for.

 

With all my support,

What are Ancient Grains

What are Ancient Grains?

 

According to the Whole Grains Council, “we generally define ancient grains loosely as grains that are largely unchanged over the last several hundred years.”

 

“Ancient Grains.” Ancient Grains | The Whole Grains Council, wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-grains-101/whats-whole-grain/ancient-grains.

 

These ancient grains are generally less processed than modern, more refined grains and, therefore, contain more fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Similarly, most of these ancient grains do not contain the altered modern-day gluten. “…studies have linked ancient grain consumption to health benefits, such as lower heart disease risk, better blood sugar control, and improved digestion.”

 

Raman, Ryan. 12 Healthy Ancient Grains, Healthline, 24 May 2019, www.healthline.com/nutrition/ancient-grains.

 

Many people have noticed a change in how they feel when they replace these modern grains with ancient ones. As Health & Wellness Coaches, we work with clients on their food choices and with these dietary grain changes, they have noticed an increase in energy, improved concentration, and less digestive complaints. Some of the more common ancient grains are kamut, emmer, teff, millet, and amaranth, to name but a few. It is also possible to replace modern wheat with other gluten-free options, for example, rice, oats, buckwheat, and quinoa.

Modern vs. Ancient Grains

What is the difference between the modern and ancient grains?

 

There is a big difference between the modern and ancient grains on the planet. After World War 2 there was a change in the way the seeds were manufactured for wheat production. The government gave subsidies to farmers in order to hybridize wheat. The reason behind this was to meet the need for the increased supply and demand for the growing world population.

 

The definition of hybridization is:

“Hybrid Wheat is a cross between two, carefully selected, pure lines. Each hybrid variety, therefore, has genes from both parent varieties.”

 

“HYBRID WHEAT.” Cropco, 25 May 2017, www.cropco.co.uk/cropco-services/hybrid-wheat/.

 

According to Larry Law, “Most of today’s wheat is a product of ‘ultra-hybridization’.
Furthermore, he adds, ‘Here’s the million-dollar question; do you know anyone who’s allergic to gluten today?… Wheat is mostly carbohydrate, with only 10 to 15% being protein. But 80% of that protein is gluten.”

 

Law, Larry. There’s an Elephant in the Room Exposing Hidden Truths in the Science of Health. Angies Option, Inc. GRM, 2017.

 

Therefore, the consequence has been significant for our bodies. Most of us have difficulties in digesting this new strain of wheat as it is unrecognizable to our systems. This has a big impact on our digestive system and the way we can absorb and digest the modern grain. This can cause an inflammatory effect for many people in the lining of the gut which over time can lead to leaky gut and bowel issues. As a Health and Wellness Coach, it is important to be able to help your clients with the well-being of their gut, as ‘the gut’ has a major impact on our immune system and how well it functions. Health and Wellness Coaches will take a holistic view of digestion and help clients with lifestyle changes that can impact their digestion and well-being.

Digestive Health

Why is our Digestive Health so important for our overall Health and Wellness?

 

The health of our gut affects 70 percent of our overall immune system function and is really the foundation of our health.

Digestion has both an emotional and a physical component and our digestive system is our emotional processing center. How we take in life is how we take in everything, including food itself.

Food or the lack of it has a direct effect on the health of our cells. They are literally built by the food we choose to eat and our being able to digest food and absorb the nutrition has become a major challenge during these turbulent times of change. Join us to learn how your digestive system is affecting you on all levels; mind, body, and spirit. Learn about the microbiome (gut bacteria) and their importance for your health and happiness. In our Health and Wellness Course, we look at all levels of gut health and wellbeing. Join us and become a Holistic Health and Wellness Coach and help bring this important knowledge and change around the world.

 

Consciousness

What is consciousness and why is understanding Consciousness affecting your wellbeing?

Understanding Consciousness is a challenging task and is perhaps one of our main quests here on planet earth. Perhaps not only to define it but to actually to learn to appreciate the complexity of it as we are evolving and growing in our understanding of who we are and why we are here?  As humans, we want to understand why we behave the way we do and how our very own consciousness affects our fulfillment, happiness, and unique experiences.

The definition from the dictionary is,

“the state of being conscious: awareness of one’s

own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc.”

“Consciousness.” Dictionary.com, Dictionary.com, www.dictionary.com/browse/consciousness

To be fully aware of our own existence and all aspects of our life is dependent on our readiness to self-reflect and learn about ourselves. We must understand that we are existing on all levels of body, mind, and spirit and that we can become conscious of all of these levels of ourselves.  As we become more aware we can learn to become the observer of our thoughts and emotions. We start to see the connections between how we think and how we feel and what we become. Through this process of self- reflecting we can actually make the decision to take responsibility for our thoughts and emotions as we start to see the relationship between our thoughts, emotions and our life stories.

 

Who am I am and why do we need a Wellness Revolution?

Who am I am and why do we need a Wellness Revolution?

 

I am Cathleen Beerkens and I have always had a heart for humanity. When I was working in the fields of nursing and education I was confronted with the reality and consequences of the imbalances and illnesses people were facing daily on many levels; mind, body, and spirit. During this time, I discovered that my true passion was to help people discover who they really are and to realize for themselves what Health and Wellness really means for them. I have come to understand that it means something very different for each individual and through the years I have grown my understanding of many aspects of Health and Wellness and come to appreciate the complexity of these issues.

 

Many of these issues remain the same today and people still have a hard time accepting reality. For example; the alterations in the food we eat has for most people created nutritional deficiencies that they are not even aware of. They do not realize that the very foundation of our food has been altered and their cellular health has been compromised and is not functioning optimally. Numerous people are completely disconnected on many levels with themselves, which in turn is affecting their consciousness on all levels of their existence and in how their own bodies are functioning on a daily basis.

 

Is it normal to feel tired and have chronic headaches? Is it normal to have brain fog, have difficulty concentrating and to have so many digestive issues? We need to look at this reality and ask ourselves, “Could we be doing better?”How can we live out our full potential when we are not feeling well and fully alive?

 

At the same time, our consciousness is shifting on planet earth. We are slowly waking up to the reality that on all levels we create our lives. Therefore, does this mean that on some level we have allowed this lack of nutrition and therefore allowed this lack of cellular wellbeing to affect our lives?

 

In our Health and Wellness Coaching Course we look to the new sciences of Epigenetics and Glycobiology to help us answer these questions. Join us on our journey to discover and explore what it means to live a life of thriving and not just surviving. Spend time learning what helping people in this new time on the planet looks like and learn why holistic Health and Wellness Coaching is so important for the transition and shift in consciousness we are experiencing. It is a very exciting time to be alive and becoming healthy and well is at the core to our success in this.

Fuel vs. Structural Sugars

What is the difference between Fuel vs. Structural Sugars?

 

Fuel sugars like sucrose and starches form carbohydrates get broken down for energy. However, did you know that there are other sugars in our food that are used to build the outside cellular structure?

 

These sugars are called glycans and they are responsible for your cells being able to communicate with one another. How important is cellular communication? When the cells communicate well, the body is able to send and receive the right signals, that help the body function properly. When the body does not communicate well these signals can be misunderstood and this can lead to many biological problems and imbalances.

 

In order to really understand food and its impact on our system, Health and Wellness Coaches need to understand what the new sciences are telling us about how our cells should function.

Why We Need Health & Wellness Coaches

Why is Health and Wellness Coaching important in these modern times?

 

We are in the information age; this shift and acceleration is changing our everyday lives as we presently know them. Within a very short time, robots will be taking over many of the job’s humans are doing now. What will be the consequence for us on planet earth?

 

This rapid change will inevitably come and on one hand, will bring excitement and more freedom while on the other hand chaos and transition leading to uncertainty.

 

As the old systems break down and the new systems are being created, people are in need of re-inventing not only the systems that served them but even more fundamental to the process of change, they must re-invent themselves; the way they think, feel and behave.

 

According to Neuroscientist being able to break a habit is about re-wiring your brain.  Health and Wellness Coaches will be a critical part in helping people make these changes and adapting to the most amazing time on this planet.
