Hello! Thanks for being curious about the Low Tox Life podcast. I'm Alexx Stuart, your host, and after writing and researching on health and sustainability for many years at lowtoxlife.com, I am thrilled to bring this podcast to you as an extension of the online community. The concept of living a Low Tox Life is one that rejects perfection, black and white notions of there only being one way to 'do it right'. Instead, we take a relaxed and curious approach to better choices to incorporate into our lives as and if they fit. Low Tox therefore instead of 'no tox' which to most of us who aren't on an off grid hippy commune, just isn't achievable. There's nothing more that makes me sad than having people quit before they begin because you feel like a failure. Let's feel awesome about what we can learn and do from today! On this show, we cover lots of low tox topics around sustainability, health, fashion, farming, lowering our toxic load and mind happiness and with the brilliant minds I'm so grateful to chat with, I just know you'll be inspired as I am from each show. Enjoy, subscribe, pop the kettle on and most importantly: Welcome!

    294. The keys to a healthy pelvic floor with Dr. Danielle Bailey

    294. The keys to a healthy pelvic floor with Dr. Danielle Bailey

    When you think ‘Pelvic floor’ most people either think of women who’ve just given birth or elderly people, but having an unstable pelvic floor can affect us all - that’s including men, so I’ve invited a wonderful physical therapist, Dr Danielle Bailey, who helps thousands in her practice and online, get their pelvic floor in shape and transform all sorts of symptoms that aren’t just about peeing when you don’t want to - although that part is, of course, the biggest reason to get excited - even laugh and cry or sneeze, and be relaxed about it. Right? Danielle is a physical therapist and functional medicine practitioner in Plano Texas, USA, specializing in pelvic floor physical therapy. She supports women and men who experience pelvic floor dysfunction, such as urinary leakage, tailbone pain, frequent restroom breaks, pain with intercourse, and constipation. She also helps women who experience discomfort during pregnancy and postpartum. Danielle works closely with clients to help them discover the root cause of their challenging health issues.

    293. Taking a tour of the immune system and how best to support it, with Jules Galloway.

    In this week’s show we talk about the immune system again including what it needs to function, how to boost it and how to save the day when it’s under attack, with the experienced naturopath, Jules Galloway. We cover all the body’s systems that contribute to immune function, nutrients, gut health, herbal and supplement support and more in this comprehensive and supportive road-map style show. I hope it supports you and that you consider sharing it with your friends and family so we can all be our healthiest selves at a time where many infections are floating around, not to mention the main star infection that is making things particularly challenging right now. Missed our shows on immune system disarray with Dr Gary Caplan and on nutrition for immune support with Immunobiologist, Bill Giles? Worth heading back. We’ve got Long Covid coming up too!

    292. Localization as an antidote to polarization with Helena Norberg-Hodge

    292. Localization as an antidote to polarization with Helena Norberg-Hodge

    This week I am sharing a powerful show with thought leader and localisation champion, Helena Norberg-Hodge. I have invited Helena back, given it’s just been World Re-Localisation-Day, to discuss the practicality, possibility and benefits of localising economies, and to tackle the big topics today such as polarisation as a profit-making reality that keeps us from holding big industry accountable and changing the system that’s causing further and further economic divide and despair world wide - it’s a show to make you THINK rather than perpetuate the ‘what team are you on’ arguments we all seem forced into today. Polarisation is the enemy of true progress and today’s show focuses on the benefits of what true progress are. Can’t wait to hear what you think.

    291. Dr. Nicole Beurkens - Raising kids in 2022 to be healthy, and mentally resilient and why grey-area thinking matters.

    291. Dr. Nicole Beurkens - Raising kids in 2022 to be healthy, and mentally resilient and why grey-area thinking matters.

    What are some of the biggest factors that affect the health of our children today? How is growing up in a polarised black and white world affecting our kids? What happens to our kids if they are raised in a way that doesn’t factor in an understanding of differences in people, politics and life choices? Today I invite Dr Nicole Beurkens, a triple advance degreed psychologist, educator and nutritionist to help us unpack raising kids in today’s ever polarised world and how we can support them to investigate the complexity of various global and local issues as well as how that feeds into greater resilience and peace. We also discuss some of the biggest things that move the needle for children’s health. It’s a powerful show and I hope you appreciate it as much as I did.

    290. Bill Giles on finding your signature diet (and how that in turn supports your immune system)

    290. Bill Giles on finding your signature diet (and how that in turn supports your immune system)

    In the coming weeks we’re going to be looking at the Immune System with a few practitioners and specialists in this space - Dr Gary Kaplan’s show from last month was wonderful to kick things off. Today, I interview Bill Giles, Immunobiologist, Hypnotherapist, Yoga Teacher and more, with over 3 decades of clinical experience supporting and optimising people’s immune function. Bill was a pioneer advocating for grain-free diets in the early 90s, co founding the world’s first grain-free bakery and we talk about grains in today’s episode. We explore different foods and their effects on the immune system, from plants to animal proteins, fats and fish. We look at why fructose is such a harmful sugar but not necessarily to all people and look at how one might go about finding their signature diet for optimal health and immune function. It’s a fascinating show that has me wanting to ask more questions, so Bill will be a masterclass guest in our member’s club which you can join here: https://www.lowtoxlife.com/the-low-tox-club/ and be a part of or catch the replay and the many other member-only resources we share, there.
