Looking to improve your health? The Wise Traditions podcast embraces traditions from the past for optimal health today! The key is to nourish our bodies with nutrient-dense food, not processed, food-like products. Health coach Hilda Labrada Gore, known as Holistic Hilda, is the host and producer of the show. She conducts down-to-earth interviews with leading health and wellness experts (scientists, doctors, farmers, physical therapists, and more) to uncover practical tips that you can incorporate into your life today. This podcast is brought to you by the Weston A. Price Foundation, committed to wise traditions in food, farming, and the healing arts.
Nourishing Pet Food
Why does our dog have bad breath? Why do so many pets have digestive issues and even cancer? What's going on? Billy Hoekman, the Nutrition Science Director for Answers Pet Food, discusses the role that diet plays in pet health. Just as with people, animals could benefit from a dietary overhaul that leads back to what suits their constitution best.
A brand new year offers an opportunity to start afresh. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, today discusses how to best nourish ourselves so we can be stronger and better than ever in 2021. She underscores the importance of eating lots of nutrient-dense animal foods, replete in vitamins A and D—foods that have protective properties. She discusses how to prepare for an uncertain future and the importance of proceeding with caution when it comes to the coronavirus vaccine.
Best of 2020
Happy (almost) New Year! This episode is our end-of-year gift to you, a highlight reel of sorts, featuring excerpts from some of the most listened-to podcast episodes of 2020! We cover how to shore up your health, following traditional food ways, with Sally Fallon Morell. We uncover what some of the driving forces are behind this global crisis with Leslie Manookian. And with Dr. Zach Bush, we discuss how to take our health into our hands, becoming proactive rather than reactive at this time.
Why We Need Flexibility
Mark Sisson, New York Times best-selling author and former endurance athlete, covers how to develop flexibility in our diets and in our mindset. "Metabolic flexibility" – a reliance on fats and ketones for energy – will likely reduce hunger pangs, burn body fat and increase our energy in the process. Mental flexibility gives us the ability to roll with life's punches. Find out why we need both of these right now, more than ever.
Foraging the Wild Food around Us
Nature consistently provides an abundance of wild edible foods all around us—whether we live in the city, the country, or someplace in between. Samuel Thayer, author of “Forager’s Harvest” and “Nature’s Garden," is a foraging educator and wild food gatherer who began “survival camping” at age 14.
Today, Sam introduces us to the many foods growing underfoot--from ferns to flowers to what we call "weeds."
