Have you ever considered the toxins in your home? Your body? The thing is… they’re invisible. Which means they’re not perceivable with our senses. But there are signs that you’re living in a toxic environment: allergies, illnesses, fatigue, unease.
In the latest episode of the podcast, Alexx Stuart of LowToxLife shares her insights into going low tox and what an impact it can make on your life and health. Alexx stands firmly with LowToxLife and “a new brand of activism” changing the way we think about these invisible poisons.
But Alexx isn’t judgmental; she’s realistic. Alexx knows it’s long process to remove many of the toxins from our lives, this is one of the reasons why her e-courses are so powerful: you can’t make all of these changes in one go. It takes care, persistence, dedication and a whole lot of self-love.
Low-Tox Tips from Alexx
- Scented fabric softeners
They contain phthalates are endocrine disruptors (endocrine disruptors are chemicals that disrupt hormones)
Tip: add 1/3 cup bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) with 15 drops of oil into the drier instead
- Single use plastics
They’re unnecessary and harmful for the planet. Think with the 7th generation in mind.
Think of the scientists removing the plastics from whales.
Bring your own bags: invest in reusable cutlery and straws: bring your own to-go cup.
Ask yourself these questions before purchasing:
Where does it come from?
How was it grown/raised?
Am I ok with that?
The vocabulary that comes along with going Low Tox can be daunting. In the e-courses on Low Tox Life Alexx will take you through the difficult names and abbreviations so that you will be empowered to avoid harmful toxins.
