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.

The healthiest, most robust, vibrant, fertile peoples around the world have no refined or denatured foods in their diets. Nothing important was taken out, nor were foods unnaturally processed or changed. Dr. Weston A. Price studied people groups all around the world and found that this was one element that all of their diets had in common. This is why it is Principle #1 of 11 principles of healthy diets based on Dr. Price's findings and the continued research of the foundation. 

Sally Fallon Morell explains why whole, real foods, processed in traditional ways, are so critical for health. She touches on how modern processes make the nutrients in foods less available, while traditional processes improve the quality of our food and make the vitamins and minerals more accessible. She emphasizes the importance of getting our fats right, and of avoiding refined sweeteners and additives. Listen and learn how these simple, practical steps can bring about improved health and weight loss.
