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!

    311. Dr Lucas Tims on cancer - root causes, prevention and how we can broaden our treatment options for improved patient experience.

    311. Dr Lucas Tims on cancer - root causes, prevention and how we can broaden our treatment options for improved patient experience.

    This week continuing our health series, I interview Dr Lucas Tims, medical director of the Riordon Clinic, Kansas, USA. Cancer through the naturopathic doctor lens gives a broader set of options to explore to not only treat the patient, but to change the terrain and make the body less hospitable to cancer now and into the future - a key piece of the treatment and healing puzzle sadly missing in conventional care which is “let’s try to kill and zap it and hope it doesn’t return or grow’. It’s inspiring to know Dr Lucas and other physicians like him are out there providing this holistic care and I hope it’s a helpful show for you, friends and any family that might need it right now.

    310. FROM SCRATCH: Adventures in Hunting, Fishing, and Foraging on a Fragile Planet, with David Moscow

    310. FROM SCRATCH: Adventures in Hunting, Fishing, and Foraging on a Fragile Planet, with David Moscow

    What does “From Scratch” cooking mean to you? In modern times it’s come to mean making food at home, instead of ordering take-out or packaged snacks. Today, we take “from scratch” to it’s true meaning which is hunting, gathering, fishing and then preparing the food, exploring how that looks around the world, through the work of film maker and story teller, David Moscow. David Moscow is the creator, executive producer, and host of From Scratch and co-author of a book by the same name. He made his feature film debut at age thirteen in Big, starring as the young Tom Hanks; years later, he starred with Christian Bale in Newsies. He has appeared in dozens of films, television shows, and theater productions over a thirty-five year career. Most recently, David founded the production company UnLTD Pictures. He has executive produced more than twenty feature films and he also develops mixed-income sustainably green apartment buildings - in his spare time! I hope you enjoy our exploration and his stories, from FROM SCRATCH: Adventures in Hunting, Fishing, and Foraging on a Fragile Planet.

    309. Endometriosis with Alexandra Middleton, naturopath.

    309. Endometriosis with Alexandra Middleton, naturopath.

    Are you or someone you know experiencing heavy, painful periods or suspecting/diagnosed with endometriosis? Today’s guest, Alexandra Middleton received so little care in her early journey that she quit investment banking and studied naturopathy to better understand and support her disease and then work to support other women in clinical practice. Endometriosis has been vastly underdiagnosed with hundreds and thousands of women complaining of debilitating symptoms and pain with nothing more than a suggestion of a pain killer and rest. In today’s show we discuss what’s at play, what some of the root causes can be that contribute to the development and progression of endometriosis, and how looking after ourselves and our environment is key as we heal and recover - with or without surgical intervention. Please share it far and wide with those who might benefit from the support and guidance. Enjoy the show and head to the show notes for more details over at lowtoxlife.com/podcast

    308. Jeff Lieberman: From mess to message: How to support our teens into adulthood with “Sleepawake”

    308. Jeff Lieberman: From mess to message: How to support our teens into adulthood with “Sleepawake”

    Did you feel connected, supported and ready as you headed into adulthood? Did you know yourself? Well Jeff Lieberman didn’t and had a really tough time of teen life and early adulthood, despite from the outside looking like an all-star student and human with 4 university degrees, a successful large-scale art business and hosting a show on the History Channel. Jeff jokes that he learned quantum mechanics before learning about his emotions but is quick to point out the tragedy of this. He marvels at the fact that we can measure the external universe to 10-decimal accuracy, but most of us don’t learn about our insides: our emotions, what leads to flourishing, how to take great care of ourselves. Years of personal exploration transformed him, leading to a determination to not have the road to joy be difficult for others to find. He has spent the last 15 years training in meditation, personal development, and group dynamics for well being, facilitating high school students through a 3-week intensive and adults through an 18-month program. His new camp Sleepawake has had incredible results and in today’s show you’ll get a window into just how much we can do now, and for our young adults and teens, to steer a happier, healthier course as connected ,purposeful individuals and communities.

    307. Hannah Churton - Food waste solutions from the mindset, to the practicalities of worm farming and compost

    This week is all about taking action on food waste - which, if it was a country it would be the 3rd largest emitter behind China and the USA - It’s a BIG deal and instead we seem to keep focusing on what’s on the plate instead of what’s in the BIN! Hannah Churton literally lives to make people feel confident about bringing worm farming or composting solutions into your life and in this show we discuss best options for a range of home styles - including apartments without balconies - and we also discuss barriers to entry, hiccups when getting started and common trouble shoots and what to do. I hope you love it as much as I did. I took extra good care of my worms this week, remembering just how important a job they did, after speaking with Hannah.

    306. Julia Edgely: Broadening your understanding of homeopathy for viral and bacterial infections.

    306. Julia Edgely: Broadening your understanding of homeopathy for viral and bacterial infections.

    Julia Edgely joined us on the show recently to dive into the world of homeopathy, its history, the theory, the significance of different strengths of remedies and the ways homeopathy can be a big player in your life. Today’s show is actually a Low Tox Club member masterclass, which we run each month for our members, that - because it was just so useful and powerful when it comes to viral and bacterial infections - I felt compelled for everyone who listens to the show to get access to it as well, as well as giving you a window into what our masterclasses are like. In today’s show, we dive into the details of viral and bacterial infections and what remedies you need in your kit to deal with the onset and treatment of the infection at hand - we even go into the significance of different presentations of SNOT and what it tells us/what remedy we might need. We also cover red flags for when doctor/emergency care is warranted. It’s so useful and I’ve already expanded my homeopathic kit accordingly - I know you will too. To join the Low Tox Club you can go to lowtoxlife.com and hit the explore tab and you’ll see “join the club” as your first option. For more details on today’s show you can head to the podcast page. Enjoy, Alexx.
