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.

    Farmed Fish Vs. Wild Caught Vs. Sustainable Aquaculture

    Farmed Fish Vs. Wild Caught Vs. Sustainable Aquaculture

    What are our options when it comes to seafood? Farmed fish is often raised with antibiotics and even fed food coloring to dye its flesh to make it appear healthier. The process of wild-caught fish regularly leaves other sea creatures trapped in the nets, only to be discarded and wasted. Sustainable aquaculture shows us that there is a way to raise and harvest fish (and eat them) that is better for them, the environment, and our health!
    Ty Walker runs Smoke In Chimneys, a revitalized 1930s trout hatchery in Virginia, and today, he reveals what's possible when it comes to identifying and enjoying quality seafood. Today, Ty goes over what's going on with most farmed fish and industrial-scale wild fishing. He reveals issues with overfishing, the "fresh" label on our seafood, and microplastics in our oceans and fish. He points out that sustainable aquaculture is much like regenerative farming; it presents a sustainable and viable option that honors our environment and nurtures our well-being.

    Must Health Be Sacrificed For Beauty?

    Must Health Be Sacrificed For Beauty?

    How far do we have to go to be deemed "beautiful" by society's standards? Many end up losing their health as they put their bodies through extreme dieting and cosmetic surgery. It's actually possible to cultivate beauty naturally and preserve our health in the process! This is the outlook of Lauren Berlingeri, the co-founder of HigherDOSE. Lauren is a former model who has first-hand experience trying to jump through the hoops of looking "perfect".
    In today's candid conversation, Lauren shares how striving to achieve that standard wrecked her health, leaving her exhausted and with gut issues. She tells the story of how she ended up getting breast implants and why she later decided to have them removed. She goes over her new health regimen which includes sunlight, infrared sauna therapy, and more. She explains why she advocates for a more natural approach these days when it comes to beauty and cultivating well-being.

    Help! I Have High Cholesterol

    Help! I Have High Cholesterol

    The doctor looks you in the eye and says, "You have high cholesterol." Now what? Statins are not the answer! Not by a long shot! Dr. Tom Cowan of the New Biology Clinic reminds us that there is no correlation between high cholesterol and heart attacks, heart disease, or early death. He sheds light on the HDL/LDL ratio questions and suggests that cholesterol tests, in the first place, do not provide helpful data in any case.
    Find out what Tom recommends instead to maintain a healthy heart and a healthy lifestyle.

    Myths and Truths about Cholesterol

    Myths and Truths about Cholesterol

    What's the truth about cholesterol? Are we more prone to heart attacks if we have high cholesterol? Does cholesterol and saturated fat clog arteries?

    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.

Better than Gold!

Hands down, this podcast is one of the most valuable discoveries I’ve made. Recently, I stumbled onto the exceptionally assembled landmark book on Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, by Weston A Price, and I’ve been inspired by its content and timeliness as it was written over 80 years ago, prior to commercialized foods infiltratin every culture and . This led me to what I’d argue is one of the most enlightening podcasts available. It is a treasure trove of authentic, wisely guided nature-centered discussions, when they are needed most. Since we all are faced with food counterfeits and threats to our health, this discovery came at a great time for me! I’ve listened to over 70 episodes and shared dozens and tested the ideas and just joined the WAP foundation today. Hilda gets my sincerest accolades and thanks for guiding excellent discussion and bringing to light lareas of legitimate value! I only wish I’d have dialed this in 20 years ago, but, hey, glad to have this resource, it really is better than gold.

So much pseudoscience in one place

This podcast claims to be science based, but is actually the opposite. The short disclaimer at the end says it is not intended to be medical advice, but many of the guests absolutely give dangerous advice (e.g. drink your own urine, treat heart attacks and strokes at home). What little good information that is given is lost in the garbage.
