Wise Traditions

The Wise Traditions podcast is for those who seek optimal health, based on ancient wisdom. We believe that vibrant health cannot be cultivated in a lab, engineered through modern technology or found through “improving” nature. On the contrary, “life in all its fullness is mother nature obeyed,” as Dr. Price put it. We thrive when we live as our ancestors did, and we can look to the past for clues on how to go about it. This show, sponsored by the Weston A. Price Foundation, is an invitation to follow ancient health ways and to embrace alternative healing modalities to live our best lives. Our host, Hilda Labrada Gore, known as Holistic Hilda, interviews experts on a wide variety of topics—ranging from nutrient-dense foods to improving mental health to homesteading to detoxing to healing emotional trauma to the power of sunshine and mitigating EMFs. Every episode offers the listener a new (ancient) way to heal, grow, and live a happy life, brimming with vitality.

You may not agree with everything she says on the program, but you most certainly will be entertained! And you just may be inspired to approach food differently.

Have you heard about raw milk? Some say it's dangerous but others say it's an amazing food. Charlotte Smith falls into the latter camp. Listen to her story which led her from being a mother of children suffering with eczema to a mother who decided to start her own micro-dairy to sell raw milk to her community. Charlotte (whose children are now well) also has started a marketing course to help other farmers make a living selling raw milk. She is that passionate about raw milk's healing properties! Are you suffering from eczema? Allergies? Asthma? Diverticulitis? Listen closely. Perhaps you will adopt Charlotte's point of view, that food can indeed be our medicine!

Confused about nutrition? This podcast episode is a great place to get a handle on an approach to eating that is sensible and satisfying, with no need for deprivation or fad dieting. In today's discussion, Sally Fallon Morell, the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, explains how eating whole, real, natural foods, as our ancestors did, will nourish us in body and soul. She points to principles based on Dr. Price's research of traditional diets around the world. We can enjoy the same nutrient-dense food that they did, back then. And our bodies will reap the benefit of nourishment and good health.

Joel tackles these issues one by one in his inimitable insightful and down-to-earth manner. A compelling speaker and author, Joel has had a huge impact on this generation's understanding of food and farming. After listening to this interview, you'll understand why this is so.

For years we've seen cholesterol and fat as enemies to our health. Research scientist Stephanie Seneff makes it clear that we've been looking in the wrong direction. Because of her husband's diagnosis of heart disease, she began investigating the root cause of the condition. In the process, she found that dietary deficiencies and environmental toxins were the real problem. And that the statins that doctors were prescribing were harming, rather than helping patients. (Statins have been linked to many conditions, including those we associate with aging: cataracts, diabetes, hair loss, and arthritis, for example.) She also discovered that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Round Up, threatens everyone's well-being, and links it, among other things, to autism and Alzheimers, and, yes, to heart disease. What does Stephanie recommend for safeguarding your health? For starters, a diet of organic foods, rich in sulfur, and, surprisingly, fat and cholesterol.
