18 – Phase out, don’t freak out – low tox tips for families with Alexx Stuart

Do you feel overwhelmed trying to navigate the potential toxins hiding in your food, household products, cosmetics, children’s products, environment… the list could go on. Us too. So on this week’s episode we go straight to the expert on all things low tox – the beautiful Alexx Stuart from Low Tox Life.

Alexx Stuart spurred the Low Tox movement when starting her blog Low Tox Life in 2010 – She’s now a 12 x best selling author with 2 books, Low Tox Life and Low Tox Life FOOD, a top podcast, 10 courses supporting people’s health and sustainability goals and a thriving online community of judgement-free, empowering goodness. As a consultant, writer, speaker and coach, she never tires of supporting people where our common goals overlap to be healthier and look after our planet.

In this podcast we discuss

  • Where to start if reducing toxins for your family is something you’re interested in
