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.

How Sugar Messes with Your Health
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).

What You Need To Know About The HPV Vaccine
If you are considering getting the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine, or having your teenager or young adult get it, you need to first understand why the vaccine was created in the first place, the risks involved with getting the vaccine (compared to the risk of contracting HPV) and how cervical cancer can be prevented through nutrition and lifestyle changes.
These are exactly the things that Dr. Nathan Riley reviews on today’s podcast. He offers insights for all of us on the financial incentives for pharmaceutical companies developing vaccines, the dangerous side effects of the HPV vaccine, in particular, and what he has learned about the risks and outcomes for those who do get the HPV vaccine and for those who do not.

Dietary Propaganda In India
India is NOT a vegetarian nation. Only about 20% of the population does not eat meat. However, there is a growing anti-meat movement in India that is negatively impacting many in that country. Today, Dr. Sylvia Karpagam goes over the societal, governmental, and corporate forces that are a part of the propaganda wave. The efforts include banning eggs and meat from school lunches.
Dr. Sylvia is a public health doctor and human rights advocate who explains how the traditional caste system in India plays a part in the biases against meat. She also covers the current state of nutrition and well-being in that country, how far some go to penalize meat eaters, and how and why some are promoting a nutrient-poor, cereal-heavy diet to those who are most in need of nutrient-rich foods.

Get Your Kids Outside
Ginny Yurich, author of "1000 Hours Outside" and "Until the Streetlights Come On" challenges parents to help their children choose "green time" over "screen time." And considering how much time all of us spend on screens, this is a challenge indeed. Today, Ginny offers suggestions for how to make the great outdoors more enticing for our children. She talks about the changes that unstructured play, outside, has made for her children and her own life.
She covers the benefits of outdoor time for children's physical and mental health and the development of their social skills. And she gives specific ideas for overcoming their reluctance (and our own) to get outside in the first place.

This was a great short, informative podcast. I already new these things, but the review is a huge reminder that the level of sugar we consume is not normal or good for us in anyway shape or form.
I appreciate the refresher/reminder and will get back in the low sugar course! Great timing for this podcast as big holidays are over and many are wondering why they feel so bad and why everyone is sick around them.
They can’t really think people are dumb enough to fall for all of this, correct? Makes you wonder about their food claims. They’ve discredited themselves.
There’s an episode about drinking your own piss. If they’re going to talk about drinking urine do you really think you should be listening to them?
