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.

A hospital may very well be the last place to go if you want to stay well (and alive)! Did you know that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States? The best thing to do is to steer clear of the hospital, whenever possible.

 

Dr. Andrew Kaufman is a self-proclaimed "recovering physician" and skeptic of allopathic medicine. Today, he explains how to equip your household to avoid hospital visits and extended stays. He offers tips for building your home first aid kit and explains how even high fevers and appendicitis need not be cause for alarm (or a trip to the ER). He covers how to shore up your health, so the hospital needn't be your go-to, in the first place. He also describes just what to do if you do end up in the waiting room with a stack of papers to sign and a strong interest in protecting your medical freedom and sovereignty.

LED lightbulbs. Flickering fluorescent bulbs. Laptops, iPads, smartphones. What is artificial light doing to our health? And can we mimic ancestral, healing light (like the light of fire or the sun) in our homes to mitigate the damage and/or boost our mood and wellbeing?

 

Brian Hoyer of Shielded Healing is an expert on EMFs and the effect of light on our health. Today he gets specific about the damage our modern light can do to our health: from causing eye issues, to weight gain, to headache to lowering energy and melatonin production (needed for better sleep and improved digestion). He also goes over what we can do to improve our "light hygiene" at home to foster better health, improved energy levels and a more positive mood.

More and more people are discovering and enjoying raw milk. But it's still not legal in some states. And regulatory hoops hinder the small rancher and farmer when it comes to processing animals and selling their products to the consumer.  

How can we remove impediments so that consumers can buy the food they want from the provider they choose? And make it easier for providers to sell their products to said consumers without interference? In short, how do we defend our food freedom in the U.S.?

Congressman Thomas Massie, the U.S. representative for Kentucky’s 4th district, addresses these questions on today's BONUS podcast episode. He offers insights on the raw milk landscape. And he also goes over the PRIME act, why he is backing it and what we can do to support this act’s inclusion in the Farm Bill through three simple phone calls (to our 2 senators and 1 representative) here in the United States.

Are you playing health whack-a-mole? Heavy metals and mineral deficiency may be playing a key role in your health issues. Dr. Leland Stillman today invites us to take a look at what we have too much of in our bodies (like aluminum, lead, and copper) and what we're missing (like zinc). He also challenges us to understand how deep-seated the "root cause" of illness can be. And why it's not a great idea to randomly pop supplements at high doses for a long period of time.

Normal boy behavior is too often pathologized and drugged and medicated. When our children "act out" or "act up," it doesn't mean that they have poor behavior, a learning disability or a mental illness. It actually indicates that they are in distress and it's up to us as adults to investigate the cause of the behavior and to attempt to meet their needs.

 

Laurie A. Couture is a licensed mental health counselor and the author of "Instead of Medicating and Punishing" and "Nurturing and Empowering Our Sons." Today, she addresses the crisis our boys (and all of our children, really) are facing when it comes to physical and mental health. Laurie offers sound advice for supporting and nurturing our children through appropriate diet and attention. She makes specific recommendations for what foods to avoid to protect their health (like refined sugar and soy) and how to help them deal with trauma (like using protocols like EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).

When you look up, you may see streaks or stripes in the sky that don't seem to dissipate, like contrails of the past. If you're concerned about what's happening in our sky and how it's impacting humanity, you're not alone. Matt Landman created the documentary "Frankenskies" to draw attention to weather modification, aerosol injections, and geoengineering programs that are affecting the health of the land, sky, and the people on this planet.

 

On today's podcast, Matt goes over what first drew his attention to the matter and why he is so passionate about informing people about the spraying that has been ongoing and especially prevalent since 1992. He covers which chemicals are being sprayed and what they do to us. And he also explains why so many people deny this ongoing program and agenda that is jeopardizing our health and autonomy. Finally, he challenges us to begin taking our health into our own hands with simple steps that take us from consumerism to activism.

How can we be sure viruses don’t exist? What about the “patient 0” who transmits diseases at the start of nearly every pandemic? And do germs and microorganisms exist? What’s making us sick, if not these things? Dr. Samantha and  Dr. Mark Bailey are the authors of “The Final Pandemic” and today they answer frequently asked questions about viruses. They explain how the medical community has been unable to prove that viruses make us sick or that they even exist in the first place. They also answer questions about the use of antibiotics and about whether germ theory and terrain theory can possibly coexist.

Animals, climate change, the Wuhan lab, and germs and viruses. All of these are convenient scapegoats when looking to blame something/anything for sickness and disease. But what if they're not to blame? Is it possible that the mainstream narratives are leading us in the wrong direction? Drs. Samantha and Mark Bailey are physicians and the authors of "The Final Pandemic". In their book and in today's interview, they point to flaws in our understanding of viruses and disease.

Sam and Mark once held the mainstream beliefs about sickness and viruses. After all, they were educated about germs and diseases in medical school. But the events of 2020 led them to do a deep dive into virology, where they found no proof that viruses exist or that they cause illness. They then scoured the history books and found a pandemic playbook of sorts that had been used repeatedly throughout history, to "create pandemics" and then present the so-called solution of "necessary" vaccines to eradicate them. Their findings are startling and may lead many to question the virus narrative, as they have.

Do you struggle with bloating, diarrhea, anxiety, acne, and even depression? These can be symptoms of gut issues, along with more well-known conditions like GERDs, Crohn's, Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

 

Dr. Loredana Shapson of LifeMod Solutions goes over the obvious and not-so-obvious symptoms that can let us know that something is amiss with our guts. She dives into causes--that can range from pesticides in our food supply to chlorine in our water--and offers simple tips for long-term and immediate relief that she uses with her clients. She also points out which medications to avoid because of the havoc they create in the gut and what foods to include in the diet that are especially gut health-friendly. Finally, Loredana reminds us that our immune system, hormones, metabolic health and brain health all improve when we address our gut issues.

Our air is contaminated. We’re so disconnected from the earth. We often get more artificial light than natural light in our daily routines. And this situation is threatening our health. What can we do to turn things around? Thaddeus Owen, of the Primalhacker brand and the Corporate Escape Artist podcast, has some brilliant ideas for how to go about it.

He has concrete ideas for upregulating our detoxification pathways, for example, to manage our polluted air. He offers suggestions for finding pristine sources of pure water for our bodies and for recharging ourselves as our ancestors did, with sunshine and earthing, among other ideas. Based on the five elements from traditional Chinese medicine, Thaddeus walks us through how to ground ourselves in more than one sense of the word.

Sophia Nguyen Eng was in the tech world when she decided to make a dramatic shift. She left her high-paying corporate job, exchanged it for a homestead with chickens and sheep, and began cooking real food for her family. The next thing she knew, she was working on "The Nourishing Asian Kitchen" cookbook in an attempt to preserve the rich culinary traditions of Vietnam, China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries.

Today, she tells us what drove her shift. She talks about her family's health concerns (like her husband's eczema or her mother's heart issues), where she began to overhaul her kitchen (hint: in the spices, sauces, and oils in the cabinets) and how we can make similar shifts for health and healing. She also describes which recipes are the easiest to attempt from her cookbook for the Asian cooking novice and why eating out at Asian restaurants can be problematic.

This episode was recorded in front of a LIVE audience of Weston A. Price Foundation members.

Industrial farming is on the rise and small farmers are being put out of business. But this isn't a coincidence or an unfortunate accidental side effect of progress. Dutch investigative journalist Elze van Hamelen suggests that there is a deliberate campaign to control the land and our food supply, that is not only damaging our health but ripping apart communities, traditions, and families.

Among other topics on today's episode, Elze digs into the Rockefeller Foundation's initiative to "Reset the Table," the "30 x 30 land conservation" plan, the history of land consolidation in the Netherlands (which she never learned about in school) and more. She also discusses a surprising way we can support small farmers who are at risk of losing their land and push back against the worldwide propaganda that promotes the idea that small farming is bad for nature and for humanity.

Is there biotech food on your plate? Foods derived from cell-cultures or made in a lab? How would you know if there was?

Elze van Hamelen is a researcher and journalist, and today she covers the topic of "pharma food". This is, in essence, her term for the takeover of our food supply, as we know it, by the tech industry, that results in pseudo foods like lab-grown meat, precision fermentation, and "milk without a cow". Elze unveils today what pharma food looks like, who's backing it financially, and why. She explains why it's problematic and toxic, actually, and how her extensive research compelled her to change her own diet. She also offers insights into what we can do to defend our food freedom and what to look out for when it comes to these so-called "novel foods".

Maintaining and building skeletal muscle mass is great for strength today...and tomorrow. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, the author of "Forever Strong" explores today how to go about building muscle mass and why.

She goes over its preventative effect against "diseases of aging", like cancer, diabetes, and obesity. She specifies which exercises are actually the most effective for muscular health and what dietary choices are critical as we age. She even gets into if there's such a thing as acquiring TOO much muscle on the body and what to do if arthritic pain and/or illness makes exercising difficult in the first place.

You may have heard of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) or "factory farms", but what is REALLY happening on these conventional farms? What is the mindset of the animals? How are they treated? And does this affect the quality of the meat in any way? Guest Will Winter is a veterinarian and the co-founder of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. He is a herd consultant with "feet on the ground" on conventional and regenerative farms. Today, he reveals the differences he has noted from start to finish, revealing insights on how the animals are cared for, what vaccines they receive, what happens with their waste, and how this affects our health and the health of the planet.

To set your body up for healing, it needs to feel it is safe. Safety signaling frees up "bandwidth" for your nervous system to repair and reset. Dr. Olivia Lesslar is a medical doctor who specializes in neuro optimization. Today, she explains how to make space for your body to heal with safety signaling. She offers concrete tips that she has successfully used with her own patients to get them into the parasympathetic healing state, like scanning the horizon and eating meals at the same time everyday. She also tells the story of her own journey and how safety signaling helped her body heal on multiple levels.

Are you addicted to sugar? Do you feel your blood sugar dip when you haven't eaten? Do you get hangry? If you're struggling with any of the above, or with insulin resistance or weight gain, this episode is for you.

All of these are signs that you may need to curtail your refined sugar intake and help your body stabilize by avoiding refined sugar. Dr. Weston A. Price called sugar a "displacing food of modern commerce." Too often it takes the place of more nourishing fare. It's also highly addictive.

Today, Sally Fallon Morell, President and Founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation, offers specific suggestions for how to make some simple shifts. She discusses the ways sugar impedes good health, but also how we have healthier options to help satisfy our natural sweet tooth without compromising our health.

Towards the end of the episode, we read our "Sugar Alert!" brochure which we are offering for free this week (see link below).

If you are considering getting the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine, or having your teenager or young adult get it, you need to first understand why the vaccine was created in the first place, the risks involved with getting the vaccine (compared to the risk of contracting HPV) and how cervical cancer can be prevented through nutrition and lifestyle changes.

These are exactly the things that Dr. Nathan Riley reviews on today’s podcast. He offers insights for all of us on the financial incentives for pharmaceutical companies developing vaccines, the dangerous side effects of the HPV vaccine, in particular, and what he has learned about the risks and outcomes for those who do get the HPV vaccine and for those who do not.

India is NOT a vegetarian nation. Only about 20% of the population does not eat meat. However, there is a growing anti-meat movement in India that is negatively impacting many in that country. Today, Dr. Sylvia Karpagam goes over the societal, governmental, and corporate forces that are a part of the propaganda wave. The efforts include banning eggs and meat from school lunches.

 

Dr. Sylvia is a public health doctor and human rights advocate who explains how the traditional caste system in India plays a part in the biases against meat. She also covers the current state of nutrition and well-being in that country, how far some go to penalize meat eaters, and how and why some are promoting a nutrient-poor, cereal-heavy diet to those who are most in need of nutrient-rich foods.

Ginny Yurich, author of "1000 Hours Outside" and "Until the Streetlights Come On" challenges parents to help their children choose "green time" over "screen time."  And considering how much time all of us spend on screens, this is a challenge indeed. Today, Ginny offers suggestions for how to make the great outdoors more enticing for our children. She talks about the changes that unstructured play, outside, has made for her children and her own life.

 

She covers the benefits of outdoor time for children's physical and mental health and the development of their social skills. And she gives specific ideas for overcoming their reluctance (and our own) to get outside in the first place.

Do you ever wish there were a study comparing outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated infants, children, and adults? There have been hundreds of these studies. The results are peer-reviewed and published and have been compiled by our guest today, Dr. Brian Hooker. Brian lets the science speak in the course of this podcast interview and as the co-author of the New York Times best-selling book "Vax-Unvax: Let the Science Speak." He shares the conclusions of numerous studies that show the difference in health outcomes between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. He also covers specific issues with the flu shot, thimerosal in vaccines, vaccines for pregnant women, and more. This may be just the episode you've been waiting for if you've wanted some clear-cut data to share with those who have never seen such studies contrasting vaccinated and unvaccinated populations in black and white.

Lard mimics our natural skin oils. It has the same ph balance and lipid balance as our skin does. This is one reason we might want to consider not only cooking with it, but using it for skin care! Charles Mayfield, author, regenerative farmer, and founder of Farrow (lard-based skincare) today explains how lard is good for both our health and our skin.

 

He goes over lard’s nutrient profile, why it’s been maligned or misunderstood for so long, and how he stumbled into discovering its wonders himself. Charles also offers simple tips for healthy living, inside and out!
