Why Getting Cold This Winter Is A Good Idea
We are often insulated from our environment. In the winter, we warm our homes. In the summer, we cool them. But we may be unintentionally harming our health by not challenging our bodies to deal with the ambient temperature. A panel of experts today explains how we can benefit from cold therapy, offering practical first steps for those who are new to the practice. They also cover the problems with artificial light and the importance of getting more sunlight on our skin.
Health Freedom: We The People
What would you do if you were in the military and your commanding officer ordered you to get a series of vaccinations? And what if it was a series of shots that you noticed had sickened your colleagues? This was the situation of Major Jim Gallagher in the 1990s. Today, Jim tells the story of what happened to him and his colleagues. We also hear from Joe Ordia of the Virginia Freedom Keepers and Patty Healy of the National Vaccine Information Center.
Rediscover Bone Broth
The earliest recipes we have, from Samaria, are all for broth. Yes, bone broth made with bones, tendons, and cartilage! It may sound foreign to us now, but it's time to rediscover this wise tradition. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, today reviews principle #10 of the 11 wise traditions dietary principles: how all traditional peoples included bones in their diet, typically in the form of a gelatin-rich broth.
Health Freedom: Small Steps To Regain Rights
Even a drop in the bucket can help fill a bucket to the point of overflowing. Dr. Devin Vrana, the owner of Light House Chiropractic & Acupuncture and the host of the "IF THEY KNEW" podcast, discusses the small steps we can take to defend our health freedoms. She asks important questions about what's happening today and what we can do about it.
Aboriginal Wisdom and Heritage
The aboriginal people of Australia are considered the world’s oldest civilization. There are more than 250 distinct aboriginal groupings, each with its own language, unique customs and traditions. Suzanne Thompson, of the Iningai people, is a self-described rainmaker and ancestral whisperer.
Health Freedom: The Costs Of Autism
Autism rates have skyrocketed over the last few decades. The first autism prevalence study in 1970 showed an autism rate of less than 1 in 10,000 kids. Today in the U.S., the autism rate is 1 in 36 children. Sometimes we hear the stats, but the implications don’t quite register. Dr. Toby Rogers discusses today what these numbers look like in real life. Toby has a profound understanding of the public health problem of autism, from how it impacts parents, to the economy, to the world at large.

Understanding our current health crisis
I’ve never left a review before - for any podcast! But, I want you to know that I love this show for challenging the norm and pushing the boundaries on how society views health. I was especially moved by Dr Cowan’s interview - I appreciate and admire his courage in explaining his views on the cornavirus and 5G. I think now, more than ever, we need to have open conversations about alternative ideas without feeling threatened by them. So, thank you Weston A. Price foundation for the amazing work you are doing.
Healthy diet with a touch of science denialism
I'd like to leave a higher review because the host is affable and the guests are well spoken but besides wisely advocating a healthy diet, in some cases this podcast also promotes dangerous pseudoscience and science denialism. In the "Hateful Eight" episode about seed oils the host explains to her MD guest that she doesn't believe that a contagious virus causes Covid-19:
“We at the Weston A. Price Foundation espouse the terrain theory [of disease]. We’re convinced this virus [SARS-CoV-2] isn’t necessarily a contagion, rather a process that’s happening on the cellular level where our cells are excreting exosomes…"
This podcast is giving me my humanity back.
If you’re a recovering vegan or vegetarian or feel utterly baffled by all the new diets out there, I urge you to check this out. 30 minute episodes. My favourite podcast.
