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 truth about cholesterol? Are we more prone to heart attacks if we have high cholesterol? Does cholesterol and saturated fat clog arteries? Are cholesterol-lowering drugs helpful or doing more harm than good? Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, today dispels myths and misconceptions related to cholesterol. 

She explains the vital role cholesterol plays in the body for the brain and nervous system. She goes over its antioxidant functions and its role in fighting infections and toxins. She even covers what may be leading to heart disease, since cholesterol is not to blame.

Do you have to be a good planner to start a garden? How can you avoid pests if you don't use pesticides? Are “companion” plants a thing? What plants are best near others?

 

These are some of the questions addressed by Jill Ragan of Whispering Willow Farm in this week's podcast episode. Jill is the author of “The Tiny but Mighty Farm,” and she has lots of ideas for how to get started gardening. She made plenty of mistakes that she openly shares so that we can learn from her and avoid duplicating the bad stuff. She offers ideas for both the beginner gardener and the one with more experience under their belt.

 

Since Jill is a “market gardener,” she knows how to scale up and what works for gardeners with a lot of lands and those with very little. She covers the importance of practical space usage, why string trellises work better than plastic cages, and more.

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.
