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.

For decades, heart patients have been treated with stents, bypass procedures, low-fat diets, and drugs to lower their cholesterol. The theory that heart attacks are caused by blockages in the arteries is accepted as the last word on heart disease. And this explains why doctors work tirelessly to unblock them. But what if the theory is incorrect? What if blockages aren't actually the cause of heart attacks?

Dr. Tom Cowan brings some surprising data to light that puts into question the cause and treatments of cardiovascular disease, and heart attacks, in particular. He explains how the heart can effectively create its own "bypass" when major arteries are clogged. He points to remarkable studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of a little-known plant to treat angina. And he gives some sound advice about how to avoid heart disease altogether--including eating a nutrient-dense diet, avoiding stress, and living in a way that nurtures the parasympathetic nervous system.

    I am 64. After my Congestive Heart Failure diagnosis in 2009 my first symptom were feet swelling, energy loss and chest pains. Suddenly I got weak and dizzy and had severe shortness of breath. My blood pressure was 200/100, respiration was 28 with oxygen saturation of 88 percent. I was extremely short of breath. My doctor started me on blood pressure medications, Lasix and nitroglycerin, the medications helped but not much. In January this year my PCP referred me to Rich Herbs Foundation, i immediately started on their natural organic CHF FORMULA treatment. I had a total decline in all symptoms including the leg and feet swellings, shortness of breath, fatigue, weight problems, excess urination, chest pains and others. Visit Rich Herbs Foundation web page ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om. The CHF treatment totally reversed my congestive heart failure condition and most amazingly i can go about my daily activities!

    Here is a new alternative view on heart problems, by Dr. Hamer in Germany. It supports Dr. Cowan's observations: http://learninggnm.com/SBS/documents/heart.html

    I loved this episode. Having previously worked as an engineer in advanced medical imaging and specializing in Cardiac MRI and Cardiac PET/CT this was very much of interest to me. And I am a huge fan of Dr. Cowen and the book he co-authored: The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care. I am headed to his website now to check out the articles mentioned in this episode!

    As a nurse trained with the conventional theories, it is very refreshing to hear an alternative.

    Thank you a million! After having a reaction to something last night, my sister told me to just rely on the WAPF diet to strengthen the parasympathetic system.
    As a previous chapter leader myself for 12 years, I wore myself out teaching classes while serving them a full course meal, along with bringing the goods they could buy that went with the diet.
    Can't do it all for everyone anymore and trying to recover. I always take an epsom salt/baking soda bath which helps get rid of lactic acid but am so tired of dealing with a cortisol issue, will this supplement give me a good boost til I can get back on track with living a simpler, slower, fuller life?
    Thank you for this, is Gods perfect timing for me😊
