Description

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.

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.   Visit Jill's website:  thewhisperingwillowfarm.com   Join the Weston A.

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.   Visit Andy's website for more info and resources: andrewkaufmanmd.com Become a member of the Weston A.

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.   Check out Brian's website: shieldedhealing.com Subscribe (follow) this podcast on your favorite podcast app See our sponsors: NTI school and Lyte Balance
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.   Visit Leland's website: stillmanmd.com  Check out the Weston A.

475: Nurturing Our Sons

475: Nurturing Our Sons

2024-05-2041:372

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).   Visit Laurie's website: laurieacouture.com Join the Weston A.

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.   Check out Matt's websites: actualactivists.com, frankenskies.com, sperogear.com Follow the Wise Traditions podcast on your favorite podcast app See our sponsors: Earth Runners and School of Lunch
473: Virus FAQs

473: Virus FAQs

2024-05-0650:261

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.   Visit Loredana's website: lifemodsolutions.com Become a member of the Weston A.

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.   Visit Sophia's website: sprinklewithsoil.com Become a member of the Weston A.

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.

Pharma Food

Pharma Food

2024-03-2540:423

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.   Check out Gabrielle's website: drgabriellelyon.com Subscribe to Wise Traditions on your favorite podcast app Find more resources at westonaprice.org See our sponsors: Optimal Carnivore and Vintage Tradition
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.   Visit Will's website for more info: willwinter.com   Go to westonaprice.org for more resources on regenerative agriculture and sustainable farming practices.   Check out our 12 Spoons Restaurant Rating site.

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.

Sacred Hunting

Sacred Hunting

2024-02-1939:502

Is there anything "sacred" about hunting? What can it teach us, technically, emotionally, or spiritually? Kyle Kingsbury, former MMA professional and Human Optimization Director at Onnit, talks about the lessons he's learned from hunting that have influenced his perspective on his relationship to nature, his own masculinity, and ancestral wisdom.   Check out Kyle's website: kingsbu.com Go to realmilk.com for info on raw milk See our sponsors: Optimal Carnivore and Vintage Tradition
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).

The takeover of small, organic agribusiness is a very interesting and important topic, but the lobbying for alternative medicine and homeopathy probably put off any intelligent people from the podcast

Hi. Very interesting podcast. Just a quick question. Where I live there is a mountain range to my East, so I don't actually see the sun rising on the horizon so to speak. How do I factor this in to getting the first rays of sunlight and also the 10° time. Or is it not necessary to actually see the sun, but just be in the light of it?

"A lot of people don't realize that 'billions of years ago there was no oxygen'"... That's where I couldn't keep on. I enjoy learning and hearing new ideas but not when concepts are based on a lie. Still amazing to me how so many people deny God's creation and the Bible!
