Welcome Alexx Stuart to Sparta Chicks Radio
You just have to back yourself…I’m never going to not back myself again

I'm so happy to welcome Alexx Stuart to Sparta Chicks Radio this week.

Alexx is the founder of ‘Low Tox Life’ website as well as the host of a podcast (with over a million downloads), a 4x best-selling author and the founder of a thriving online education hub, all by the same name. 

Alexx is on a mission to help people want to (not *have* to) make changes for the better in their lives. 

She launched 'Low Tox Life' back in 2010 a few years after discovering she had a gluten allergy and going on a personal mission to find out what she was putting in, on and around her body.

I've known Alexx for almost 10 years and it's been amazing to watch her and 'Low Tox Life' thrive over that time.

In this conversation, we discuss:

* why she developed a strong passion for social justice from an early age,

* the impact of her French-Mauritian heritage on her relationship with food,

* her life and career before discovering she had a gluten allergy,

* the tension she felt in the early days of the ‘Low Tox’ business when her work in hospitality was still paying the bills, 

* her experience with the Imposter Complex, 

* how she’s found the confidence to own her expertise in an area that’s highly scientific and research-based, without having a formal qualification to back it up,

* what it means to live a ‘low tox life' and why it’s important, 

* her best tips on how to transition towards a ‘low tox life' and how to start, and

* why you should consider replacing your pillow.

I love that Alexx adopts a judgement-free perspective, that she recognises that it can be overwhelming when you start to realise the extent of changes you could make and that she encourages people to change one thing at a time.

This might seem like an unusual conversation to have on this podcast.

But I think there are two common themes.

The first is around hormones and how easily they can be disrupted (in line with my previous conversations with Katee Gray (Pedicini) over the years).

And secondly around awareness and being conscious of the decisions we make.

I talk about that in the context of our mindset and the stories we tell ourselves about who we are and what we can and can’t do.

Alexx talks about awareness in the context of being fully informed and conscious of what you put in, on and around your body. 

Alexx is a passionate woman with a big heart and I’m excited to share her story with you.
