What do you do when you drive yourself to the ground – or in this case, to the hospital bed – amidst a successful acting career, working, partying non-stop and being super unkind to your body? You pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and teach all you’ve learnt about rebuilding a healthy life for yourself, to 1000s of women around the world through coaching, motivation, and mean girl mastering.
Melissa exudes health, joy, and an unashamed appreciation for her own self-care, that inspires all who cross her path to ditch the guilt and have the darn massage.

This week Alexx chats to a household Australian name – Indira Naidoo. From being the youngest anchor on the ABC to creating the “shonky awards” for CHOICE magazine, targeting false advertisers and crazy claims, to chance meeting that meant becoming a best selling author inspiring 1000s of people to grow food no matter how much or little space you have at home, Indira has plenty of interesting stories to share this week while she gives us a peek inside her life, her why and how we can all be a part of the progress we want to see towards a healthier planet.
This is a cracker of a jam-packed show where Alexx discusses the relevance of the MTHFR mutation with naturopath Carolyn Ledowsky along with a few other key genes, and why, for people who’ve hit a real road blog in bettering their health, gene testing can be not only useful but essential – especially in the matters of chronic illness and preconception care.
If you know someone who hasn’t had a baby yet or has struggled to fall pregnant – please, Alex implores you to share this show with them. For everyone else? SO MANY HEALTH WISDOM NUGGETS.
This week Alexx has you guys all to herself. After her recent travels, she has been asked a load of questions over and over again about travelling low tox. So? It’s just her this week and she’s sharing her best low tox travel tips when it comes to food you can and can’t take aboard, movement, preventing swelling, indispensable products to take with you and sustainable choices you can make to save on single-use plastics.
By the end of this show, you will be brimming with ideas to make your next travels more sustainable as well as knowing not how to look like a pale grey puffer fish with scaly skin – nobody needs that, right?
In this week’s show, Alexx chats to Nick Ritar after promising to bring him back again to discuss bees. If you were never really interested in bees before, trust us when we say you will well and truly fall in love with them, as well as understanding what you can do to protect them.
Nick’s positive attitude and gentle way of helping people make shifts in understanding and appreciation of nature, makes us excited to protect our bees, rather than wrapped in all the doom and gloom of “the bees are dying”. Nick shares many ways we can protect these amazing little nature ninjas into the future, starting from our every day.
Enjoy this heartfelt window into what a bee lover sees and you never know – you may well become one yourself!
There’s a lot of stress around exercise and there need not be. Alexx has brought Alex Fergus PT & Health coach to top executives back on the show (remember their sleep chat last year?)
Alex’s down to earth nature and relaxed attitude will have you understanding the importance of exercise, sure, but how little one needs to to to get big returns as well as tips to incorporate movement throughout the day that doesn’t need to be in the form of a ‘focused class’.
If you want to learn about the effectiveness of exercise and getting bang for your buck, this show will be perfect for you.
Dr Gina Martins and Dr Evan Sgamotta are wonderful holistic practitioners that I’ve invited on the show to discuss not only the field of Chiropractic and to give you a better understanding of its breadth, but also one of its star components – Neuro Emotional Technique.
NET is a mind-body technique that uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress. NET is a tool that can help improve many behavioral and physical conditions and the examples they give during our chat will definitely highlight the potential for its power in keeping your emotional / physiological responses in check, clearing tensions and blocks when they build up.
What do the mouth and sleep have to do with each other? Well, it turns out one heck of a lot.
Dr Ron Ehrlich, a holistic dentist talks us through the many ways that our oral health can affect our sleep. As Ron says, to treat just the mouth is crazy, when it’s attached to a whole body.
Grab a paper and pen to make notes for this amazing show lifting the lid on sleep through the lens of the holistic dental profession.
In this show Alexx chats to Sustainable Salons Australia co-founder Paul Frasca about his incredible, community building business, recycling as much as 95% of the hair salon’s waste and turning it into some seriously useful things.
We talk about just how much wastage there is in the hair industry, what the various waste items can actually be recycled for, how he’s set the business up and where to next.
It’s an inspiring chat with a guy who instead of leaving his industry to ‘do something more sustainable’ decided to stay right where he was and make HIS industry more sustainable.
Sea vegetables to save the world. In this episode, Alexx chats to Dr Pia Weinberg. Winberg has a PhD in marine ecology from the University of Wollongong. She now heads a company, Venus Shell Systems, which is working to take the science of marine biological systems and apply it commercially by creating a new Australian aquaculture industry: the sustainable growing and farming of seaweed and algae.
They talk about the sustainability potential of responsible sea vegetable farming, the nutritional benefits, the fish industry in general, prawn farming and much, much more.
