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!

    303. Corbin Halliday and Alexx Stuart Share their Experiences Working Through Mould Illness/CIRS

    303. Corbin Halliday and Alexx Stuart Share their Experiences Working Through Mould Illness/CIRS

    On this show, I have a conversation about what it feels like to have a little-understood and vastly under-supported illness due to mould toxicity and I do that with a fellow Aussie who’s been through it as well, Corbin. We are super open about what it’s been like along the way - the good, the bad, the ugly, the silver linings and the constant challenges. We don’t hold back. When Aussie, Corbin Halliday – working as a hairdresser at the time - was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), the result of unwitting exposure to mycotoxins from black mould, he was suffering from serious health complications such as chronic migraines, high blood pressure and nerve pains. After being diagnosed with CIRS, Corbin was motivated to adopt a lifestyle free of chemicals, including toxic-free skincare. He researched all of the products he was using and realised there was a gap in the market for organic and toxic-free skincare and self-tanning products – hence Three Warriors was born, which has developed into a multi-million $ Aussie brand coveted by celebrities and lots of people in the low tox community.

    302. Naturopathic Support in Oncology with Carla Wrenn

    302. Naturopathic Support in Oncology with Carla Wrenn

    This week on the show, naturopath Carla Wrenn is back on the show discussing her speciality: Adjunct naturopathic care in oncology treatment and beyond. We talk about how she came to specialise in cancer, what it is like to establish a collaborative spirit with Oncologists, how a patient can feel empowered in the process of making changes and navigating options and the importance of mind/body practices. We discuss some of the research that shows some things to be very supportive for treatment, side effects and quality of life, as well as different dietary approaches suiting different cancers. It’s fascinating and hopeful and I hope you or a loved one finds it helpful if this is something you’re working through right now.

    301. Julia Edgely - The power of homeopathy

    301. Julia Edgely - The power of homeopathy

    Curious to know more about homeopathy works? In today’s show, we dive right in with Julia Edgely. We focus on history, practice and a couple of simple home remedies we can work with ourselves, as well as knowing red flag signs of when you need professional help or emergency physician care. I also ask her what her desert Island remedy is and why - it’s a goodie and I’ve already ordered it! Julia Edgely is an internationally practising and licensed homeopath.  She treats a very wide range of patients but in certain cases, she saw a distinct pattern. Overuse of unnecessary antibiotics leads to pathologies sometimes years down the road. This led her to develop her signature method, The ABC Method which has helped hundreds of individuals and families eliminate unnecessary antibiotics use.  She believes education and knowledge is the key to helping her patients embrace their wellness journey.

    299. Building a Healthy Home from the ground up with Andy Pace

    299. Building a Healthy Home from the ground up with Andy Pace

    Andy Pace, Healthy Home Concierge and Founder of The Green Design Center, is back already. Our first show together was fantastic, looking at some of the disconnects between choosing building styles and materials and their impact on human health - seems to be we’re building for a very narrow success metric of energy saving while ignoring indoor humidity and mould growth potential. Add to that sloppier and more lax building codes in many places around the world where waterproofing isn’t done properly or wooden frames are filled over while still wet, and there are disasters waiting to happen - sometimes within just a year or two of the build being completed. But what if we could learn, step by step from the location to the ground and up, every facet of what makes a healthy home? Well, in today’s show we have a red hot go at doing just that. This show, while being a dream for someone considering building their home, is brilliant for renters and owners alike with the bounty of information Andy provides us in this show - we become more literate at spotting pitfalls before living in them! Yes, please. These are life skills we’re learning here and I’m thrilled to bring this show to you as well as Andy’s globally renowned expertise!

    298. The Thyroid Debacle with Dr Eric Balcavage & Dr Kelly Halderman

    298. The Thyroid Debacle with Dr Eric Balcavage & Dr Kelly Halderman

    Thyroid struggles? This show is where you need to be then for the next 70 minutes. I am thrilled to have back on the show Dr Eric Balcavage, a relentless crusader in thyroid health education and long-term root-causes-based healing. He is one of the duo that has written a new book called The Thyroid Debacle, the co-author also being a past show guest, Dr Kelly Halderman. Kelly Halderman, a conventionally trained and practised physician was hit by two chronic health conditions, one being MS and through her trusting that something more could be done than what she was being told was her lot in life, discovered functional medicine and hasn’t looked back. Eric, seeing sick patient after patient that no amount of spinal adjustments could support for long-term healing in his chiropractic practice felt the same. And so, thanks to these two Drs broadening their understanding of what helps humans achieve homeostasis and lasting improved health, and practising with and educating thousands around the world, we have a powerhouse tackling a thyroid-illness epidemic and having read the book myself I can honestly say I know just how impactful it will be for people to read it and practice what they learn from its pages. Today isn’t all about the book though, as we explore thyroid testing, what gaps there are in current treatments, how you can be on meds and still feel awful and so much more.
