About Us

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!

139: Plastic Free South East Asia with Sarah Rhodes

I love highlighting stories of people who woke up one day and started playing a bigger game to make a difference to health or our planet. This week’s guest could be any of us. In June 2014, Sarah Rhodes, an Australian, attended an intensive training program on climate leadership, facilitated by Al Gore, former US Vice President and became part of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps. More inspired than ever and as part of her commitment to the program, Sarah set about engaging more people to take action against climate change. In July a friend invited her to join a month long challenge called Plastic Free July – the quest to avoid all single-use plastics for a whole month. This was a huge eye-opener to how much of the main plastics we all use and especially where there is plastic that is less obvious. In October of the same year, she moved to Siem Reap, Cambodia, where impacts of climate change are already felt – the time for action is now and now that she’s heading up Plastic Free July for South East Asia, the future is bright and we talk about her journey and what the plastic situation is like in Asia, as well as what we can do to keep focused on progress instead of ‘how bad it all is’.

138: Adaptogenic Herbs and healing blocks with naturopath of 25 years, Anthia Koullouros

Adaptogenic herbs: All the rage these days and self-prescribing is rife - but is it helping or hindering your health? Anthia Koullouros is a brilliant naturopath and passionate herbalist with 25 years clinical experience in Sydney, Australia. She’s also a gifted tea maker, with her OVVIO teas being sipped in some of the finest restaurants in the world as well as throughout local cafes. When Anthia and I were both speaking recently at the Mindd Forum, she closed the day with a wonderful talk and I just had to invite her on the show to share it and more with us. So, we start with adaptogens - everything from Shisandra to Amla to Bacopa Monnieri and many herbs in between, and then move to discuss stress and its many presentations, as well as fear and the block it can create for you on a healing journey. It’s chock full of useful information this show and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The show notes and podcast supporter offer can be found over at lowtoxlife.com/podcast Enjoy!...

137: Dr Sherrie Campbell on cutting ties with toxic family members

Are you in a toxic family or do you know someone who is? Not a light topic this week, folks. Dr Sherrie Campbell. What a brave woman and practitioner taking this personal experience of hers out to the world to offer a road map to help others in similar situations. She is a licensed psychologist in the US, inspiring author, and nationally recognized expert who’s featured regularly on TV and radio to share her expertise from nearly two decades of clinical training. I am committed to discussing from time to time on the show, areas of our life that affect our mental wellbeing. Stress will kill us faster than a hot dog and family and relationship stress and toxicity is very real for many, keeping people in fight, flight or freeze for often years on end. This show talks about the very tough experience of living in or growing up in a toxic family and how one psychologist who lived this herself, decided that enough was enough and that she could actually cut ties and give others permission to do the same, making peace with the situation and moving on. I hope this show helps you or someone you know, navigate this tricky situation. Shownotes for further resources can be found over at lowtoxlife.com/podcast and please - if things are super tough for you right now. Australia’s helpline is 13 11 14 and Wikipedia actually has a list of all the country’s helplines. Amazing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines
