66 – Practical tips for managing mould (and why we should care) with Alexx Stuart

Have you noticed pesky areas of mould or damp in your home? Do you just wipe it away and hope for the best, or have you been freaking out (like Kate) that it is negatively impacting your health? Or maybe mould has never crossed your mind! Whichever applies to you, today’s episode will have you feeling informed and empowered.

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

  • What is mould and mould illness, and why Alexx is so passionate about it
  • Why we get mould and whether all mould is bad for our health
  • What makes certain people more susceptible to mould and when to worry 
  • What makes a house more susceptible to mould and preventative measures you can take
