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.

    Garden To Grow Your Own Food

    Garden To Grow Your Own Food

    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.

    Stay Out of the Hospital

    Stay Out of the Hospital

    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.

    Get the Right Light

    Get the Right Light

    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.

    Act Now to Defend Food Freedom with Congressman Thomas Massie

    Act Now to Defend Food Freedom with Congressman Thomas Massie

    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.

    Get Off the Therapeutic Treadmill

    Get Off the Therapeutic Treadmill

    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.

    Nurturing Our Sons

    Nurturing Our Sons

    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).
