 🎤🎧 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.

 🎤🎧 Being hailed as “Sex and the City for Food,” The Food Heals Podcast brings together experts in the fields of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health to teach you the best-kept natural secrets to being a hotter, healthier, happier YOU!
