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.

What’s the secret to a long, healthy life? Dr. Alvin Danenberg recently participated in the "Human Longevity Project," a documentary that explores the world’s “blue zones”--areas where folks are living long, happy lives. He knows well what it takes to nurture good health. A personal health crisis years ago led him to change his own diet and lifestyle. Now, at 71 years of age, he is healthier than he was decades ago. Today, he is a certified functional medicine practitioner, a primal health coach, and a periodontist who offers unique insights and tips to point us in the right direction. 

Among other hacks, he stresses the importance of diet (not just what we eat, but what we choose not to eat), the role of the microbiome in our overall health, the supplements to take to diversify gut bacteria, and how a 4-minute daily workout can bring immeasurable benefits to our bodies!

Many people use Roundup without questioning its safety. It’s advertised on TV, and sold at hardware/garden stores all over the country. The herbicide is viewed as a miracle spray that gets rid of those dreaded weeds within hours. It’s become a staple garden product in many homes. And it's used by many agricultural companies during food production. But how safe is it really? What is it doing to our health?

In today's conversation, Kiran Krishnan, a research microbiologist and an expert on the human microbiome, explains how dangerous glyphosate is. He discusses the science behind the damage it causes to the body's microbiome. He also explains how the presence of glyphosate directly correlates with the rise of many chronic health conditions, including obesity, autism, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and gut infections. Kiran goes in depth about the dangers of this ubiquitous herbicide and explains why it's still in use today, despite warnings from the World Health Organization that it is a probable carcinogenic.

Most importantly, he tells us what we can do (and eat) to protect ourselves from this toxin that acts like the worst kind of antibiotic on a mass scale.

Fiddlehead ferns, dandelions, mushrooms--these are just a few of the many foods that can be found in your own backyard (or in your neighborhood, perhaps) that are free for the taking and good for you! Our ancestors foraged for wild plants and mushrooms that were rich in nutrients, and we can, too! Becca Griffith, longtime food educator and foraging enthusiast, explains why wild foods are beneficial to our diet, how to go about finding them, and what precipitated Becca's own involvement in the wild world of foraging. Learn how you can get started, too, from today's engaging and "wild" conversation!

It is now so common for children to be “picky eaters” that most consider it a normal childhood phase. There are special menus at restaurants and at social events shaping this whole “children’s food” culture—offering them primarily chicken nuggets, french fries, and mac and cheese. Despite parents’ best efforts, “picky kids” seem to choose carbs all day long and getting them to eat healthier foods can appear like an impossible task. But is it? Can picky eaters be “fixed”?

On today’s podcast, Jennifer Scribner, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of “From Mac & Cheese to Veggies, Please”, helps us understand what makes a picky eater “picky” in the first place and she gives us strategies for helping them change their eating patterns. She tells us what to expect and how to plan ahead to make the transition smooth (or at least smoother) as we navigate from picky to healthy.
