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.

These times are a collective wake up call, inviting us to take charge of our health. Paul Chek, author and the founder of the CHEK Institute, today explains why we must respond to this wake up call by listening to our body and learning from the four  “doctors” (or teachers) – happiness, movement, diet, and quiet. He explains each in detail. Turning to these doctors helps us fulfill our dreams, nourish our bodies, strengthen our spirit and identify our purpose. They address our growth and health on all the levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

What would it look like if we worked together with our neighbors to foster food independence, build stronger communities, and improve our health? Zen Honeycutt, author and the Executive Director of Moms Across America, has an idea to get us growing food for our families and those around us, ensuring food access for all, which is especially important in times like these.

Zen explains the pilot program she is starting up to empower people to get growing their own food: the Neighborhood Food Network. She talks about the support offered to newbie gardeners including resources for when to plant, what to plant, how to handle pests, and more. She shares her vision for more connection with those around us and with the land that can yield food and joys to sustain us now and in the future.

With expected food shortages, it is more important than ever to get to know our farmer and buy local. John Moody, well-known food grower, researcher, and author, explains today how a food buying club may be an excellent way to source real food close to home. He describes how food buying clubs operate and how they benefit both farmers and consumers.

He goes into why he started a food buying club many years ago and why you might want to start one, too. He shares the pros and cons of such clubs and how they help us avoid the fragile, single-point of failure that characterizes the industrialized food complex.

We have been told the sun is harmful and that we need to protect our skin from its rays. But the chemicals used in sunscreens are actually more dangerous for us than the sun; indeed sunscreen is harmful to all life on the planet.

Today, we gain insights on the problems with sunscreen and what to do about it from Dr. Elizabeth Plourde, a Clinical Laboratory Scientist and the author of "Sunscreens Biohazard 2: Proof of Toxicity Keeps Piling Up."

It's not the sun that causes skin cancer, Elizabeth explains, but rather the chemicals in the sunscreen that disrupt our body's balanced hormone ecosystem with carcinogenic toxins. She talks about the problem of sunscreen mixing with chlorine in swimming pools, turning them into a kind of "toxic soup". Elizabeth also explains why spray sunscreens are especially dangerous and why zinc oxide isn’t a particularly good type of protection, either.

But she does not leave us without hope. She offers a number of ideas for how to get a healthy amount of sun without burning. She describes how we can build up our sun exposure over time, the importance of coconut oil and a diet high in anti-oxidants and the benefits of the skin’s own melanin to provide protection.
