There’s a lot of buzz around intermittent fasting and the 5:2 diets over the past couple of year BUT: Are they for everyone?
What do we need to consider before embarking upon either? How do they differ? And are there therapeutic benefits or dangers in either of them? These are the questions and more that Alexx asks Naomi to shed light on today so that if you were to consider giving them a go, you’ve taken your own health factors into account and you know what the signs of either success or them not being the right thing for you right now might be.
Lots of great info and a little curiosity challenge set for us all, too.
Alexx launched this podcast nearly a year ago, with a passion for bringing you all aspects of the low tox life – toxin reduction information, inspirational eco businesses doing right by people and planet, health topics for the body and mind to help us live our best lives…
The very first show was the infamous “Poopcast” all about poop, and if you thought there was only one show in the topic, you’d be wrong 😉
This week we talk all about constipation with Lynda who is highly specialised in the the area and what’s brilliant is, it’s a super practical, can-do show to help you and anyone you know, get moving. Our bowels aren’t our only detox point, but they’re an important one, and the ramifications of NOT going, can be many.

This week Alexx your host, chats to the wonderful Meik Wiking – A man with an idea to research happiness who then founded the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark – the happiest country on earth.
In this show they discuss 2 things. Firstly, The Happiness Paradox – what makes Denmark a recurring winner of the title “Happiest country in the world” and why the happiest countries in the world don’t have the lowest suicide rates. Secondly, they go on to chat about Hygge and his New York Times best seller: The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well.
It’s a meaningful chat and one Alexx knows you’ll be able to take on the challenge we set for all listeners this week with gusto.
Alexx absolutely adores meeting a fellow nerd – someone who passionately digs and digs into all the wonderful areas we can go on various aspects of health and wellbeing.
Like Alexx, Kirsty Wirth came to start her journey of digging due to health challenges – her gut woes and her son’s autism diagnosis. What that diagnosis did was propel her to become an expert on all things related to gut health, including an encyclopaedic knowledge of the role of individual probiotic strains.
In today’s chat Alexx and Kirsty discuss the benefits of certain probiotic strains as well as the hindrance of other certain bacteria strains to feeling your best. They talk dysbiosis, leaky gut, histamine, autism, pathogens, parasite cleansing and SO MUCH MORE.

In this week’s show, Alexx chats to Cole Clayton, who after career searching for much of his 20s, he tuned into his sadness for the state of health of so many kids today and became a health coach, specialising in kids.
His passion for helping kids thrive matches Alexx’s own but his approach is different and she found it wonderful to chat to him about his passion for Oral Myology and helping mouth-breathing kids correct the reasons they’re mouth breathing (not having mouth closed as default position) and the impact that sleeping with your mouth closed can have on energy, brain function, behaviour, sinus health and more.
If you’re a parent or simply interested in out of the box therapies and their impact, this is definitely a show you’ll enjoy – not to mention getting to know this easy going, passionate man on a quest for better children’s health.
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. If you struggle with finding the space in your life to be kind to yourself and fill up your cup, you absolutely need this chat in your ears while you take a walk in your favourite spot and remind yourself that with your own health and vitality comes the ability to do all the things you want for others.
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!
