Today we feature excerpts from our most popular episodes of 2019! Coach & fitness expert Ben Greenfield is known as a "biohacker" who uses technology and science for peak performance. And yet he also has a profound understanding of simple ways that we can mimic the health practices of our ancestors for optimal health. (From episode #185 "Mimicking Ancestral Living")

Clinical scientist and hormone expert Dr. Elizabeth Plourde weighs in on the sunscreen debate and discusses why sunscreen may do us more harm than good. Based on her extensive research, Elizabeth discusses how sunscreen negatively impacts coral, marine life, and our own. (From episode #183 "Is Sunscreen Okay to Use?")

And health coach, fitness professional, and podcast host Hilda Labrada Gore offers her top tips for healthy living. Holistic Hilda, as she is known, is the host and producer of this show. As such, she has gleaned insights on how to improve energy and well-being. She emphasizes the power of sunlight to improve sleep and hormonal function, and reveals the daily physical and spiritual practices that give her perspective and strength.

If we want nourishing food, we need to put our money where our mouth is. Sally Fallon Morell, the head of the Weston A. Price Foundation, makes a strong case why it is so important to spend at least 50% of our food dollar supporting local farms and artisans.

In today's podcast, she gives practical tips  for how to go about buying more food right where we live, how to stretch our food budget, and which foods are especially important to buy locally. She also reminds us of the big picture--that is, how powerful educated consumers are. The way we spend our money shapes the direction of the food industry.

So, what’s the deal with fat? If it’s really so good for us, why is there still so much conventional dietary dogma warning us of its perils, and how can we learn to discern which voices to listen to when it comes to something so important like our health?

Heart health expert & author Dr. Stephen Hussey offers common sense and scientific insight on the role fat should have in our diet. His starting point is our body's penchant for burning fat, from the beginning of time. He busts the myth that blames heart disease on fat consumption. And he explains how we can benefit from including more fat in the diet and which fats are the best "starter" fats (like egg yolks, for example)!

Imagine being stuck on a desert island with access to only one food for survival.  What would you choose? Our guest today, cheesemaker and founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation, Sally Fallon Morell, would definitely say cheese!  Today, we’re thrilled to welcome Sally back to Wise Traditions to tell us all about her favorite food.  She tells us about the surprising nutrient density and health benefits of cheese, how cheese got its start, how it is made, and how to include more of it into our diet.

Our children are sicker than those of prior generations. One in two has a chronic illness. What can we do to turn the tide? Beth Lambert has concrete ideas about how to reduce our children's toxic burden. Beth is the executive director of Epidemic Answers, a group committed to empowering and educating families to help children heal. Beth has an audacious goal of getting hard data on the health status of children across the country, and then documenting the journey of families who undertake changes to reduce the stressors on their children's bodies. 

Today, Beth gives us the background on her own journey: how her own children’s health concerns alarmed her and propelled her to start examining the root causes of chronic issues like eczema, allergies, digestive issues, and sensory and processing disorders. She was able to turn things around for her own children and now is on a mission to help children, nation-wide, and world-wide.

We learn about the tools she used to help her children rediscover health and balance. And we are invited to join hands with her by participating in the study she is conducting to document hope for the next generation.
