Low Tox Life

Low Tox Life 2016

A podcast for a healthier, happier you and planet - Hosted by Alexx Stuart, founder of the low tox movement, author of Low Tox Life + Low tox Life FOOD and www.lowtoxlife.com

  • 1 hour 19 minutes
    385. Exploring the lack of progress on biodiversity and conservation with author of “Wild Quests”, Satyajit Das

    This podcast is a big exploration of several important topics of our times (Das hates the word ‘conversation’ and shares why in the show) 


    • People feel jaded seeing injustices inflicted on people, from corporate to political to personal, without a sense of real accountability for actions taken and how that’s impacting everything from polarization to lack of success in environmental care and regeneration. 
    • The corporatisation of not-for-profits and climate change are feeding into many people’s scepticism that the policies and solutions being tabled will get us results. 
    • Wild Animals and Das’ book “Wild Quests” to help remind us what needs our attention and witness. 
    • Why “Donate $1 a day to save the Koala/Nature reserve/World” is not working. 
    • Living with our own contradictions - impossible to escape if we want to unite over what will make a difference. 


    Das isn’t here to give people comfortable ‘off ramps’ and this was definitely a thought provoking hour exploring things we’re all often thinking about, also often despairing over the state of, and yet never moving forward and we aim to light a fire or remind us to find our overlaps and common ways to move forward. 


    I hope you love it as much as I did, your host, Alexx

    384. Could the secret to ageing better be so simple? Juliet Starrett explains…

    How do you go putting your shoes and socks on while standing and not leaning against anything? How about 1-legged toothbrushing? 


    Amidst the discussions on the finer points of VO2Max, perfecting your form with the bench press and focusing on protein prioritisation, Mobility and Stability too, deserve pride of place in your physical fitness but they’re not extra and exhausting ‘new to-dos’ for the list: 


    Juliett and Kelly Starlett have got it down to 10 tests + 10 physical practices that create 10 ways to make your body work better, most of which you can incorporate into what you’re already doing - even while watching TV. Thank god, as I’m only part the way through the new Bridgerton series 😅

    It is such a joy to bring you this chat with Juliet, who was also a professional whitewater paddler, winning 3 World Championship and 5 national titles. Juliet is on a mission to help people MOVE more and what I love about her whole vibe is that we’re not being scared into it or shown something that feels 1000 steps away from where one might be today, but we’re invited through curiosity, play and being shown that progress = success. 


    Get inspired with me and enjoy the show, 

    Alexx

    383. Kids and tech: How to cultivate a healthy, safe blend of tech and reality in the digital world with psychologist, and cyberpsychology researcher Dr Jocelyn Brewer

    Big tech poses a double issue regarding tech and kids and family concerns. 


    No1. For Parents trying to learn practical skills about parenting and caring in the age of so much technology and now AI, we’re often very quickly scared to death: The algorithms favour sensationalist, fear-based marketing: the worst of the worst facts get preference over moderate, nuanced skill-building messaging and we tend to then act out of fear when communicating with our kids around tech, instead of curiosity, building trust, teaching boundaries and validating their interests with their safety in mind. 


    No2. For Kids, the algorithms can serve sensational, sexual or violent content that they’re not ready for and don’t know how to deal with in a healthy way, often sometimes feeling shame or breeding secrecy over what they’ve discovered or private conversations they’ve been invited to. 


    We need to figure out how to be better flashlights for their spotlight minds, and Dr Jocelyn Brewer is back on the podcast to help us take a deep breath and get really good at it. 


    We cover:


    • Gaming/Gaming styles and connection and community green/red flags
    • Tech usage and how we talk about it with our kids (pro tip: WITH, not AT for starters!)
    • Our fears around risk can create a win/lose battle where no one wins. 
    • Social media - we’re consuming a product, NOT the effort behind it. Kids don’t realise. 
    • DMs/Messaging and navigating communication and kids knowing how to deal with tough things friends go through (SO good!) 
    • Escalation - communication, content, sensationalism in algorithms. 
    • AI and the way forward with the pervasive amount of synthetic content now being generated and shared. 


    Share it far and wide - I haven’t spoken to a single parent or teacher who hasn’t got concerns over some of these topics, and we need more practical skill building, not more fear and denial.

    382. Genius wisdom to help you in all areas of life, with Gay & Katie Hendricks

    There could be a million different reasons this hour might improve your life. You will have to listen and find out, but all I will say is don’t delay.  


    That we have Gay and Katie Hendricks, their separate and collaborative bodies of work and their books to share so much wisdom, makes me feel good about the world and I’m overjoyed to bring them to you in the show this week. 


    We talk about all this and more: 


    • Creative Possibility - how to harness it and foster it. 
    • Conscious living - what it is in practice and how it doesn’t look ‘one way’ for all. 
    • The magic of appreciating and taking time to notice each other and our uniqueness
    • Katie’s “Presence; connect; play” exercise
    • Upper Limit Problems - How to notice self-sabotage and whether you might secretly believe you don’t deserve to experience a great life. 
    • That health problem that keeps popping up? Could it be an upper limit problem of yours? I share an old one. 
    • Chronic pain and attention issues are often the symptoms, not the problem. 
    • Love and connection to get closer together with the people we love.


    Put simply: We explore many big things this week that will crack us open to be put back together even better, Kintsugi-style. A must listen. A gift to share it with people in your life as is all the work Gay and Katie have done. 


    I cannot wait to hear what you got from this week’s show,

    381. Quantum Kids: Why combined therapies do better justice to our kids’ health, with Cole Clayton & Jalal Khan

    We have more specialists than ever before, yet we are sicker than ever before. That’s why I am thrilled to bring you this week’s show, because it’s a story of two practitioners. This is a treat if you are a parent and: 

    • You’re struggling to pinpoint what your child’s breathing, behavioural, focus, congestion, crooked teeth or headache issues are stemming from when you’ve tried lots of things.
    • You think there might be a link between an ‘event’ and your child’s current issues (a fall, a trauma, a bone break…)
    • You want the money you spend on your child’s teeth (it’s a LOT these days!) to actually amount to solutions and lasting results. 
    • You crave a new paradigm where we move away from the world where we’re sicker than ever, we have more specialists than ever, and you hate the merry-go-round you’ve been on with your kid, spending lots with few results
    • You love big-picture thinking when it comes to health
    • You want to have more empowered conversations about your child’s health with your primary care doctor or dentist and be better versed in issues that could be at play. 

    Share it far and wide with parents you know, and I’ll also say, super useful for adults who’ve had long-term musculoskeletal or dental/jaw structure issues to look at the bigger picture for yourself, too. - Enjoy the show, Alexx x


    Cole Clayton and Jalal Khan started The Quantum Kid after a mutual friend insisted they meet or she would force them! Within 6 months their business is achieving goals they set for 2-3 years. After combined 30 years of focused effort The Quantum Kid was an overnight success. Cole and Jalal set about to create a formula unique in healthcare, an approach to helping kids thrive that involves both practitioners working together in the same room to ensure the structures of the face, jaws and skull are ideally aligned.

    380. Quantum Biology: The Magic, The Medicine, with Dr Catherine Clinton

    Quantum Biology is the study of teeny tiny, complicated subatomic particles and energy that blow your mind. Being a beneficiary of it can be as simple as standing watching the sunrise or sunset or walking barefoot in the ground. 


    So, if you’ve been daunted in the past, today that ends as we deep dive into this topic with Dr Catherine Clinton, naturopathic physician and Quantum Biology educator helping you understand what the most accessible, truest form of medicine is, and how to make it a part of your life that you connect deeply to and start to seek out. We discuss


    • The science - what we know and what we’re coming to understand about our biology
    • Coherence - how everything is connected in nature and what ‘tuning in’ feels like
    • How your quantum biology check-list becomes a want to; a necessity and not another ‘set of things you have to do for your health’
    • What medicine can you start administering from today, without spending an extra cent on your health?

    379. The Allergy epidemic in our kids: Can we fix it? Dr Elisa Song say yes.

    Allergies - Nearly 1 in 5 kids has an environmental allergy today, and nearly 1 in 10 has a food allergy. While these differ from person to person in severity, they are a challenge on the mental load, in the home and even more so out and about. My good friend and one of my favourite doctors in the world - she’s SO DANG SMART - Dr Elisa Song @healthykids_happykids and I deep dive into the reason so many families are dealing with allergies and in this comprehensive show, we explore: 


    • The biggest factors playing into how we got here with allergies and poor gut health.
    • How the gut microbiome has changed in 100 years and what species we know are critical to healthy histamine and mast cell ‘flexibility’ as we grow. 
    • How to be better informed when it comes to antibiotics and how to talk to your doctor
    • Testing and screening options
    • Therapeutics - conventional and holistic
    • The SOS game vs the long game - building resilient health and regulated responses to what we eat and what we’re exposed to in our environments. 


    It is PACKED. I usually say go for a walk in nature, but if your reality is dealing with allergies, it’s PAPER-AND-PEN day today! 


    I hope it’s useful for you and people you love - share it far and wide + if you want to hear the first show we did together look up show #85 on the childhood epidemics of our times. It’s also a doozy full of practical wisdom. 


    And the link to pre-order Elisa’s truly excellent new book is in the bio - her work is seminal in the way she’s put everything together in here. Bravo Doc!

    378. Stop trying to ‘control’ your emotions, and here’s why... with Cedric Bertelli

    This show is all about emotions. As Cedric Bertelli, founder of the Emotional Health Institute, explains, our culture is obsessed with trying to control our emotions. It turns out however, it is this desire to control our emotions that inadvertently prevents many of us from developing emotional resilience. So, in this show, we unpack: 


    • How our responses to situations are often formed from events a long time in our past
    • Why emotions don’t make sense and trying to make them make sense is futile
    • What happens in our conscious and subconscious at a point of trauma and how can it form long-term imprints? 
    • How phobias can be overcome - and it’s not about ‘overcoming’ them. 
    • How we can break life-long emotional patterns that things like talk therapy haven’t helped us resolve?


    It is a fascinating exploration of memories, trauma and emotions, and how we can break unhelpful loops we might be stuck in, and I hope you or someone you know finds it to be as interesting and helpful as I did.

    376. Can “Frugal” mean “Abundance”? Jen and Jill from Frugal Friends say YES

    What is Frugality felt good? What if it was about abundance and positive mental health and a great contribution to wasting less and doing more of what you love? 


    Well… that is what Jen and Jill from Frugal Friends Podcast have made it about and I love it so much I’ve recorded a show with them. We discuss: 


    • Why the negative connotation of frugality and how to flip the script in your life? 
    • How does one start to think about living frugally in a way that doesn’t conjure 1 jar with a year’s plastic, making everything from scratch wearing a linen dress in the woods and homeschooling your kids if the stereotype doesn’t resonate? 
    • What got you both feeling frugal? Did you grow up that way? A crisis? Awakening?
    • Frugal in the kitchen, walk us through your fave ideas that you love to get people onto when they’re exploring/trying to change
    • Frugality with appliances and fixing things 
    • Frugal living with kids who want ‘all the things like their friends have!’ - how can we make it a potentially positive experience in raising kids? 
    • Frugal success - little by little? Personal priorities? Best ways to make change stick?

    And so much more. I hope you love it as much as we enjoyed having this conversation.

    375. It’s Menopause’s Moment: A new conversation about midlife, with Lisa Mosconi PhD

    Lisa Mosconi PhD, renowned neuroscientist with over 200 published papers, says: Menopause is having a moment. She’s right, and she’s written the book to meet that moment. The Menopause Brain, a book being celebrated around the world. Gen X has arrived mid-life, with all the state-of-flux symptoms that come with peri-menopause and menopause and said: Enough! Why are we not talking about this? Why are we being gaslit in Dr’s offices for our symptoms and being offered multiple medications for anxiety, depression and pain, but not having a conversation about what might help us far more, due to outdated medical research claims of overblown HRT risks? We also have been robbed of the exciting potential for embracing the rite of passage into a new chapter, from a spiritual and personal growth perspective. We discuss: 


    • Menopause is not a disease, and it’s not just ‘aging’ - it is a neuro-endocrine transition: A biological event
    • What’s happening during this transition and why sex hormones aren’t just sex hormones
    • The risks that increase from midlife for women including a discussion around Alzheimer’s Disease
    • The benefits of ‘getting to the other side’ from a resilience and cognition perspective. 
    • Was HRT risk ‘fear’ in the late 20th Century overblown? 
    • Lifestyle considerations to support us during our transition
    • Validation for your own experience: A critical piece in the transition
