00:44 This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Stephen Hussey. Dr. Hussey is a chiropractor, functional medicine practitioner, and online health coach. He is the author of a new book called, 'The Health Evolution: Why Understanding Evolution is the Key to Vibrant Health'.

And also, talk about how an understanding of our evolution could guide us to optimizing our health today. Over to Dr. Hussey.

01:17 Hey guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition. And I am delighted to welcome Dr. Stephen Hussey to the podcast today. Dr. Hussey, how are you?

Stephen

01:25 Pretty good. How are you?

Stu

01:26 Very well, thank you. Very well. So thank you for sharing some of your time. I know we've got, you've got lots of knowledge that I am sure that you'll be happy to share, and with us this morning, that we can then pass on to our audience. But first up, for all of those listeners today that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.

Stephen

01:49 Yeah. So, I am a chiropractor. And I also have a Masters in Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition. And I practice chiropractic here in Roanoke, Virginia. But I also do online health coaching through my website, resourceyourhealth.com. And there, I focus on helping people achieve high levels of heart health, as well as autoimmune type conditions. And I focus on those because of my personal story. So I was a very sick child. I had lots of inflammatory conditions. And we relied on, my parents and I relied on Western medicine to help me with those. And didn't really get the results I was looking for.

02:34 So, as I grew up, and as I got a medical education, and started learning and seeking out everything, I found that Western medicine was pretty ineffective at helping me deal with these things. And I found out how to get rid of most all of them. Aside from the collateral damage, it is Type I diabetes. And I got rid of everything that I was suffering with as a child. All of the inflammatory conditions. You know, IBS, inflammatory hives all over my body, allergies, all that kind of stuff.

03:07 And so, even through my medical training, i found that it was still not giving me the answers. And so, I've always been a student, and always looking for the answers in any place I could find them. Stumbled upon evolution, and just everything that has to do with humans. Anthropology, health, everything. I just kind of [inaudible 00:03:32] it all. And put it all together. And found the answers for me. And have kind of healed myself, and now helping other people to do that, as well.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Brian Richards. In 2008 SaunaSpace founder Brian needed to make a decision: fill prescriptions for acne, insomnia, and adrenal fatigue, or take a chance with Near Infrared ( NIr) Sauna Therapy, as recommended by an alternative medicine doctor. For Brian, it was a no brainer. But there was a problem, at the time you couldn’t find an NIr sauna. So, he began his journey to change that.

Over the following years, Brian became consumed with creating the perfect product, fueled by the healing transformation of his personal experience with NIr Sauna Therapy. At the beginning, SaunaSpace was one big DIY project, where Brian did everything from designing his logo and website to building every sauna himself.

With so much to do, Brian brought in his trusted friends Rusty as Lead Design and Tony for Chief Ops to accelerate SaunaSpace Product & Production Development. Today, Brian heads our ten-person team that operates 3,500 square feet of workshop space spread over two locations.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main benefits of infrared saunas?
  • Is EMF a concern with infrared sauna use?
  • What are your thoughts on mixing infrared saunas with cold therapy?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Brian Richards. Brian is the founder and lead product developer of SaunaSpace, an innovative company doing remarkable things with near infrared saunas in order to help others discover the pathway to natural healing. In this episode, we discuss how Brian fully healed his toxin related acne, brain fog, adrenal fatigue, and more with the power of incandescent sauna therapy, full spectrum near infrared light and heat therapy. We dig into the science behind Near Infrared Saunas and discover how we can use this technology to optimize our own health. Over to Brian.

Hi, guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Brian Richards to the podcast. Brian, how are you, man?

Brian

00:01:30 I'm good. Thank you. How are you doing?

Stu

00:01:33 Yeah, very well. Thank you. Thanks so much for your time. Before we get into the questions, I'd love it if you could just share a little bit about yourself for our audience that may not know or have heard about your work, please.

Brian

00:01:46 Yeah, of course. So, I'm the founder of SaunaSpace. We manufacture incandescent infrared saunas is a very special type of sauna, it's a very special type of infrared called Near Infrared. But my story is, I think, similar to many people nowadays. Six years ago, over six years ago now, I had what I eventually understood to be adrenal fatigue problems. I had mind racing, insomnia, I had this weird acne that was only in my torso. I was also kind of negative and irascible and low energy kind of lethargic. This was at the end of my college career while I'm still young but at this point I felt like there was something intractably wrong with me.

I went to the dermatologist and they prescribe Accutane, which it turns out is a horrible thing. And all the other pharmacological approaches as well. So I said, "No, there's got to be something else." I got on the internet, like everybody does nowadays and I searched for an answer, for my own answer. And I kept encountering sauna and detoxification and this idea that environmental toxins are a core contributing factor to disease and these other things, all these problems. So, sort of at the end of that I stumbled upon this really unique type of sauna. It's called it it's called the Incandescent Sauna, what SaunaSpace does. It was actually invented and pioneered by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg in 1891. So, for those of you are not familiar, Kellogg's cornflakes, this is an interesting aside.

At that time, in the early 20th century, out of control male libido was thought to be a problem. So they thought, oh, well, we'll feed the all the adult males this bland food that we call cornflakes now and it'll lower male libido. So fast forward today, and they have achieved their goal. So, funnily enough though, this guy had really, he was very avant-garde. He was doing some very unique approaches, alternative healing approaches in the early 20th century. One of them was this. He said, "Hey," three years after the labels were invented, "Let's use them for sauna heaters and we'll heat the body and we'll heal people."  And so you can see in 1910, he wrote a book called photo therapeutics. So here we have light therapy been understood over 100 years ago, and it was not just him, but he pioneer this, he called the electric incandescent bath, you can actually see photos of these big victorian looking cabinets from that era there. They're insane. And so there's there's a modern book called Sauna Therapy for Detoxification and Healing by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, to whom I'm eternally grateful for re-popularizing the concept. And so I said, "Hey, I'm a tinkerer. I'm a builder, I'll build my own." I built my own. I did a session right before bed, and then another one right before bed the next day and it was like, boom, my insomnia was completely gone. I slept like a log and I woke up in the morning and I felt truly rested. Instead of, normally, I would sit in bed and just stare and my mind would be racing. So I thought that intrigued me. That was the initial thing that intrigued me so quickly, how could this be? Subsequently, I used it for six months with discipline, 45 minutes a day. And this is before I understood any of the science and any of the things that we'll talk about.

But essentially, it was out of self interest. I had health problem, I wanted to fix it. I stumbled on this and I had an amazing recovery. So, six months later, I realized, " Oh, that's what adrenal fatigue is." I was qualitatively better. I was less irascible, I had more patience, more energy, a qualitatively better mood, just more of a go getter like more ready to just concentrate and complete tasks and complete things, and how do you measure this? For me, it was priceless. The change. And yet, if you met the old me six months prior, you'd say, "Well, what's wrong with you? You look fine." And so I kind of figured it out on my own. It started slowly but I built a few for this, and that and my friends and family and it slowly became SaunaSpace.

I got my own business loan, that was six years ago, and I started with a very bricolage kind of garage project to now, it's a completely custom made, custom designed to make a commercial properly designed, safely designed product that anyone can use at home. And it's been a long journey from there to here but I now have like 24 employees. You can see behind me, this is our new shop, we just moved into. It's huge. [crosstalk 00:06:47]

Stu

00:06:46 Yeah. It's so [inaudible 00:06:48] there in the background for sure. Wow.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Christopher Shade. Quicksilver Scientific Founder & CEO, Dr. Christopher Shade obtained his PhD in environmental metals chemistry from the University of Illinois. During his PhD work, Dr. Shade patented analytical technology for mercury speciation analysis and later founded Quicksilver Scientific, Inc. to commercialize this technology. Shortly after starting Quicksilver Scientific, Dr. Shade turned his focus to the human aspects of mercury toxicity and the functioning of the human detoxification system. He has since researched and developed superior liposomal delivery systems for the nutraceutical and wellness markets; and his clinical analytical techniques for measuring human mercury exposure are unique and more comprehensive than anything in the industry.

Thanks to Dr. Shade’s deep understanding of mercury and glutathione chemistry, he was able to design this breakthrough system of products for detoxification that support and maximize the natural detoxification system. Formulated to target specific detoxification pathways, Dr. Shade’s bundles and protocols combine his knowledge for maximum effect. These bundles create a powerful entourage effect that helps the body maintain homeostasis and metabolic balance for optimal health.

 

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What’s the gold standard when testing for heavy metals?
  • What are the most common symptoms of heavy metal toxicity?
  • How safe is the removal of dental amalgams?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

Stu

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Christopher Shade. Dr. Shade is the CO and co-founder of Quicksilver Scientific and is a globally recognized expert in the field of heavy metals and detoxification. In this episode, we discuss the signs and symptoms of heavy metal toxicity, together with the strategies that we can call upon to start detoxification. Over to Dr. Shade.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 118 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Christopher Shade to the podcast. Dr. Shade, how are you?

Christopher

Doing very good, thank you Stuart.

Stu

Really interested in the topic today which, essentially, is going to be talking about detoxification, heavy metal accumulation, things along those lines. First up, for our listeners that may not be familiar with you, yourself or your work, I'd love it if you could just share a little bit about yourself, please.

Christopher

Oh sure. I'm a PhD originally in Environmental Chemistry and Bio-chemistry, focused a lot around or almost exclusively on metals in the environment, specifically mercury. I run a company called Quicksilver Scientific, you can find us at Quicksilverscientific.com, it's a Quicksilver YouTube channel, and we make these high tech dietary supplements, we set the future of dietary supplements. We do these sublingual deliveries of different nutraceuticals and our original focus was on detoxification of metals, and then detoxifications of all environmental toxins. We applied these delivery systems to be able to get a maximum effect out of nutraceuticals that people usually associated with detoxification but when you really get the right delivery and you line everything up together you can get extraordinarily powerful programs going.

That's what we've really built on and we've grown into, we just did a keto product, we're doing hormone products all around this delivery system. Here, we're talking about metals and mercury detoxification and that's been my core for 20 years now.

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston.He is the son of two therapists in a family of 20 psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists.  Shortly after getting his Ph.D. (from Yeshiva University at the Einstein Medical Campus in New York City) Glenn built a 65 person practice in approximately eighteen months, and has now worked with well over 1,000 clients.

When people's symptoms resolved, he invited them into his coaching practice until, five years later, he was working almost entirely as a coach, and also directly supervising other coaches and therapists.  But because he doesn't have children, thoroughly enjoys his work, and has never had to commute, Dr. Livingston launched a second career as a consultant, helping large companies like Whirlpool, Novartis, Bausch & Lomb, and Panasonic, evaluate psychological response to advertising.

His previous companies eventually sold more than $30,000,000, and along the way obtained publicity in major media like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, the NY Daily News, Crain's NY Business, The Milwaukee Business Journal, The Indiana Star Ledger, American Demographics, CBS & ABC Radio, Bloomberg Radio, WGN & UPN TV, and many, many more.

Later accomplishments include co-founding and developing a 21 person online marketing agency, and developing his own profitable publishing business.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What makes us binge when we know that we shouldn’t?
  •  Which foods/drinks are the most difficult to limit?
  •  Where would we start if we want to address binge eating?

https://180nutrition.com.au/shop/

This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston. Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and was the longtime CEO of a multimillion dollar consulting firm. He spent several decades researching the nature of binging and overeating with his own patients, which included a self funded research program with more than 40,000 participants. In this episode, we discuss exactly why we are susceptible to binge eating and talk about the strategies, tools, and techniques that we can call upon to address it. Over to Dr. Livingston.

01:18 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston to the podcast. Dr. Livingston, how are you?

Glen

01:26 I'm fine. I'll be better if you call me Glenn.

Stu

01:28 Glen. Okay, well, there you go. We're friends already. Thank you, Glenn. So first up, Glen, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about who you are and perhaps what you do as well.

Glen

01:44 Well, I'm best known these days for being the author of Never Binge Again, which is often the number one book for weight loss on the Amazon kindle. It's been that way for about three years. We've got 700,000 readers just about and Yada, Yada, Yada. That's what I'm best known for. I don't hardly know who I am, but I'm a guy who spent a lifetime struggling with food until I came up with a weird way to fix it for myself. I was also the CEO of two companies that sold combined about $30 million of research to big companies in the fortune 500, fortune 100. Many of them in the food industry. I'm a clinical psychologist. I ran a child and family practice for a long time. Now as you'll see, I go around talking about a strange way to overcome binge eating.

Caspar

01:19 I'm doing well Stu. Thanks for having me.

Stu

01:21 No, I really appreciate it. And I've got a whole heap of questions that I'm very keen and eager to get stuck into, but before we do, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd just love it if you could tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Caspar

01:37 Sure thing. So I am the co-founder of Innovative Medicine. We're an organization that has been really transforming medicine and how we look at healing for the last 15 years or so. We have a clinical center in New York that sees patients from around the world, and we really are one of the few places that is truly advocating for a personalize and integrative form of medicine that gets at the root causes, and really restores health on all sides, mind, body, spirit. So it's East meets West, meets everything in between.

And we're really trying to help patients at that field, they don't have too many options out there to go about it. And in a unique way that gets to those underlying dysfunctions, addresses them with a truly comprehensive approach and gets them back on track for prolonged health. How we should live in our natural state is healthy. And that's what we're aiming to do.

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr Valdeane Browne. Dr. Brown had a long and varied history in the field of mental health before even pursuing his Ph.D. in Psychology. For over 25 years he taught Continuing Medical Education courses across a wide range of clinical topics including Rapid Transformation of Borderline Phenomenology, Dual Diagnosed Clients, Dynamics of Family Therapy, Working With Angry Adolescents. For many years he was a featured and keynote speaker at numerous national and international conferences in the fields of neurofeedback, child psychology, Total Quality Management, and others. He developed and published the Five Phase Model of Neurofeedback which was the first and still the only, approach to clinical neurofeedback that integrated multiple protocols into a single comprehensive approach that could be used regardless of clinical presentation. With his background in mathematics, physics, computer programming, designing and implementing automated outcome studies as well as multimodal assessment, he was able to co-develop, with his wife Dr. Sue Brown, the Period Three Approach to neurofeedback. Their Approach was fundamental to their new and revolutionary neurofeedback system (later to become NeurOptimal®), showcasing their vision of Dynamical Neurofeedback™. Over time this was refined, always with an overarching commitment to safe, effective and effortless personal transformation that anyone can use. Now retired from actively programming, Dr. Brown directs the ongoing architectural development of NeurOptimal® as well as being intimately involved in ongoing Research and Development at Zengar.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  • What are the main principles of neural feedback?
  • What would a typical brain training session look like?
  • How safe is the practice of brain training?

Hi Guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Valdeane Brown, PhD to the podcast. Dr. Brown, how are you?

Dr. Valdeane

01:30 I'm good. How about you Stuart?

Stu

01:31 Yeah, very well thank you. Again, thank you so much for sharing some of your time today. I'm very, very intrigued and keen to dive into some of the questions, but before we do that, I just wondered if you could tell our audience who may not be familiar with you, a little bit about who you are and what you do?

Dr. Valdeane

01:50 Yes. I'm licensed as a psychologist on inactive status in the US, and my wife is too, Dr. Sue Brown. She and I are the co developers of NeurOptimal brain training system, and we're the co founders of Zengar Institute Incorporated. It's the easiest to use, safest, and overall most interesting brain training system. Let's put it that way. Certainly the most advanced, in my opinion, and it really is about giving brain directly information about what it just did, so the brain itself sorts out what is best for it at that moment. It's not driving it any place in particular.

02:41 About 20 years ago, Sue and I decided that we really needed to create our own neuro feedback program. I was teaching at that time, neuro feedback, across a wide range of systems. Various conferences and things of that nature, and I just had had a very different vision for what neuro feedback could be. I actually had that vision all the way back in 1970, and that's kind of been my life's work. Most of that time waiting for technology to catch up to the place where it could implement what I had envisioned. So I'm definitely the visionary, shall we say?

Questions asked in the episode
- What early warning signs may we experience if pre-diabetic?
- Which foods are the worst offenders where blood sugar is concerned?
- Does medication offer a good solution in managing the condition?
 
Stu

This week I'm excited to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger. Dr. Steinberger is a holistic health educator, writer, speaker and coach. She teaches people how to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes using intricitive holistic lifestyle medicine. In this episode, we discuss the early warning signs, common myths and strategies that we can adopt to change the path of the epidemic that is type 2 diabetes. Over to Dr. Steinberger.

01:16 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Nicki Steinberger to the podcast. Dr. Nicki, how are you?

Nicki

01:25 How Stuart. I am feeling good. Thank you so much for having me here. It's an honor.

Stu

01:28 Oh I really appreciate being able to tap into your wisdom today. So before we do so, I was just wondering if you could tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Nicki

01:41 Sure. So, let's see, if I go back to childhood for a moment, I would just say that I was an introverted, quiet child who sort of sought out the truth of things and was an observer.

Stu

01:58 Yes.

Nicki 

01:58 And I've been a writer my whole life. I was a song writer and played guitar an sang and did poetry and that sort of thing. I left high school early and went and followed the Grateful Dead for a couple of years, so I've always been sort of a non-conformist.

Stu

02:16 Yeah.

Nicki

02:17 And then I found my way back to psychology school somehow. I was actually sitting in my therapist's office and going, "You know, I could do that. I could be sitting in the other chair. I think I can do that." So, I ended up in a school for spiritual psychology, which was pretty life changing. And from there I transferred to do a doctorate in clinical psychology, feeling burnt out on kind of therapy and didn't want to go down that road. So I thought, "Well, I can write and I can teach and do research."

02:54 And then about almost ten years ago, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, so I took that next year to see what I could do on my own. What kind of program I could put together. I'd been studying nutrition and holistic health for decades and a year later when I was tested again and I had reverse type 2 and other conditions, it was my sort of "aha" moment, where I then transitioned into holistic health education and started doing community workshops in the San Francisco Bay area, working with clients and then started thinking about writing this book which I did over the last few years. And that's me in a nutshell.

Stu

03:40 Fantastic. Oh I love the story. And I think the area of that story that people are really going to resonate with right now, want to know more, is the reversal of type 2 diabetes, which I think will probably form a lot of the conversation that we have today. And before we get into the techniques and strategies that you used to reverse your type 2 diabetes, why do you think it's becoming so popular? It just seems now like it's a term now that is used so commonly. Because so many people seem to becoming diabetic, which is kind of crazy. What are your thoughts?

Nicki

Justine

01:50 Sure. I mean I guess I'll just start with my fitness journey. I started about 15 years ago. I used to be a dental nurse and I didn't like the nine to five grind, didn't really enjoy the job and decided to find my passion which was in the fitness industry, so I began in a gym selling memberships, so I really didn't have any sort of direction as to where I wanted to go with it, but I just knew I wanted to be working in a gym. So I literally started at the bottom. And then from there I became a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor. I got into all the Les Mills classes and teaching Body Attack and RPM and then I did my first sort of fitness modeling show back in 2007 I think, like forever ago. And did that for a couple of years which sort of grew my name in a different sort of field in the industry and got me in with Oxygen Magazine. And yeah, so it sort of just snowballed from there and I loved what I did and I always sort of went out to do things I guess, and do things well.

02:49 I'm a bit of a perfectionist for myself, I like to set goals and achieve them and I felt like I really found my purpose. So I guess, throughout the years it sort of evolved onto the online sort of scene, so now I'm an online coach, I don't do any personal training in the gym as such anymore because I had a little boy five years ago, so once I got pregnant I was like, well I need to come up with a way to be able to stay at home with him and then still create an income. So I created Fit Healthy Mums and then my Mind Body Overhaul program, which is sort of the crux of what I do now. And my passion now really is, sort of throughout the years I guess I've learned a lot the hard way, I've done everything wrong, learned from my mistakes and now I'm really passionate about sort of steering women in the right direction, focusing on mindset, healthy relationships with food, with themselves, training, putting it all under the same umbrella, not focusing so much on aesthetics, but more so what's going on for women internally.

03:45 And the more I've worked with these women essentially over the last five years, the more I've realized how important it is that this sort of work is done for women because I think there's so much emphasis on the exterior, on the training and these days women just live such high-stressed lives, they're doing the work to sort of get ahead. So that's just become my absolute passion and emotional and mental transformations are just as exciting to me as physical ones. Yeah.

He is best known as a former anchor on the Australia and New Zealand version of ESPN’s Sportscenter, which is produced out of ESPN’s global headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. He hosts a podcast titled The James Swanwick Show, and has authored three books. Swanwick is co-founder of international media agency Crocmedia.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What’s the big deal with blue light?
  • What can we do to ensure that we stay asleep during the night?
  • What are the most common myths associated with sleep?

Stu

This week, I’m excited to welcome James Swanwick. James is an Australian American investor, entrepreneur, speaker, health coach, former SportsCenter anchor on ESPN, and host of the James Swanwick Show podcast. He’s the creator of blue light blocking glasses called Swannies from Swanwick Sleep, which help people reduce their blue light exposure and ultimately sleep better. In this episode, we discuss the strategies, tools, and tips that help us to achieve deeper and more restorative sleep. Over to James.

01:20 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I’m delighted to welcome James Swanwick to the podcast. James, how are you mate?

James

01:27 Stu, I’m doing so well. Thank you so much for having me.

Stu

01:30 Thank you. Well, thank you for coming on. I’m really intrigued and interested in hearing your story and also talking a little bit about your passion for sleep as well. So before we get into that, and for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you, I wondered if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, thanks.

James

01:51 Yeah, well I’m an Australian American. I live in Venice Beach, California, and I was always a social drinker I guess you could say. I grew up in the Australian culture, having a couple beers each night and wine in the afternoon. Also, we’d have a bit of wine on the weekends. And then I quit drinking in 2010 just for lifestyle reasons, and my life’s been pretty fantastic since then. And I now help entrepreneurs, health conscious people either quit drinking for 30 days or 90 days, or just quit drinking forever. And then I also became somewhat of a sleep expert in that I help people sleep better. I have a sleep company called Swanwick Sleep, and I guess you could say I’m a health-preneur in as much as that I like to create businesses out of my health habits.

This week we welcome Gary Collins to the show. Gary Collins has a very interesting and unique background that includes military intelligence, Special Agent for the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Collins’ background and expert knowledge brings a much-needed perspective to today’s areas of simple living, health, nutrition, entrepreneurship, self-help and being more self-reliant. He holds an AS degree in Exercise Science, BS in Criminal Justice, and MS in Forensic Science.

Gary was raised in the High Desert at the basin of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a rural part of California. He now lives off-the-grid part of the year in a remote area of NE Washington State, and the other part of year exploring in his travel trailer with his trusty black lab Barney.

He enjoyed, and considers himself lucky to have grown up in a very small town experiencing fishing, hunting, and anything outdoors from a very young age. He has been involved in organized sports, nutrition, and fitness for almost four decades. He is also an active follower and teacher of what he calls “life simplification.” He often says:

“Today we’re bombarded by too much stress, not enough time for personal fulfillment, and failing to take care of our health… there has to be a better way!”

In addition to being a best selling author, he has taught at the University College level, consulted and trained college level athletes, and been interviewed for his expertise on various subjects by CBS Sports, Coast to Coast AM, The RT Network, and FOX News to name a few.

His website www.thesimplelifenow.com, and The Simple Life book series (his total lifestyle reboot), blows the lid off of conventional life and wellness expectations, and is considered essential for every person seeking a simpler, and happier life.

Questions we ask in this episode:

  •  What advice would you offer to those of us stuck in a rut?
  • You’ve likened free-diving to meditation, has it helped you become a more mindful person?
  •  How do you mentally prepare for diving with dangerous sharks?

 Stu

This week, I'm excited to welcome Alexx Stuart. Alexx is an educator, activist and change agent who runs online courses and host a podcast for those wanting to reduce their toxic load in everyday life, Alexx calls this low tox living. In this episode we discuss the principles of following a low tox lifestyle and focus on the areas that could be unknowingly impacting our health. Over to Alexx.

01:12 Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Alexx Stuart back onto the podcast. Alexx, how are you?

Alexx

01:20 I am so great. Thanks, Stu. It's so great to be here with you. Sorry for the mood lighting I've got happening on my side. I've retreated to my parents. There's construction everywhere around our place at the moment. So, I figured quiet and moody was better than noisy and bright, right?

Stu

01:38 It looks super comfortable behind you.

01:40 It is. Yeah.

01:42 Excellent. So before we get into the questions today, for any of our listeners that might not be familiar with your work, could you just tell us a little bit about yourself please?

Alexx

01:51 Yeah, for sure. So I'm an author of a book that came out last year, The Tox Life. But the story goes way, way, way back into the past. And the whole reason I ended up in health education, even though I had a successful career in hospitality and prior to that in cosmetics in the beauty industry, was through a series of events that I like to call waves of realization, if you like. The first one being a retrospective realization that when I left cosmetics I also left the world of migraines and I was like, "Oh." I didn't really know to dig as to what was in the industry that might be causing those migraines. But I literally stopped getting migraines once I left the beauty industry. So I knew there was something there.

02:40 Then I had this recurrent tonsillitis situation, and so many people will hear this and go, "Yeah, I've been on that merry-go-round" where you go to the doctor because you feel unwell, get the drugs, you take the drugs, you feel better, you feel better for a couple of months, then you feel crap. Then you go to the doctor, then you get drugs and with antibiotics, as some people may or may not know, antibiotic resistance starts to creep in. So you get put on stronger and stronger and stronger ones and of course you're killing more and more and more good gut bugs at the same time.

03:11 And I found myself in a situation where antibiotics didn't work and this was really my wake up call to stop doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. It just wasn't making me better. And I was a thriving 28-year-old in every other area of my life. And I was like, "I can't go on like this. This is ridiculous." And so a friend said, 'I know it might be a bit crazy, but why don't you go see a naturopath?" Which, 15 years ago was a bit of a cuckoo thing to do. even though now, thank gosh, there's one on every street corner helping us build stronger bodies. But back then it was a bit weird and I went and she put me on some revolting tasting herbs that have since come to love the taste of, and a really simple and strict three day, if you have to eat something, just have some really well cooked brown rice, chicken stock and carrots and that's it. I just don't want you doing anything too complicated for your system.

04:05 And I got better in three days. I sweated it all out and it was really quite astounding to me that some herbs from plants could actually ship tonsillitis. She suggested I quit gluten containing foods as a longer term strategy to stop it from reoccurring because she had read in the research that was starting to come out that there was a strong link between [inaudible 00:04:32] bugs and a gluten, in terms of gluten feeding them and then causing proliferation, et cetera.

04:42 So I was desperate. I gave it a go even though as a half Frenchie that was probably the worst news I could have ever received. [foreign language 00:04:49] all the good things. But it worked. And the really interesting thing in that time was it got me looking at food labels for the first time in my life. I actually had to look at the ingredients because a few months off gluten and then you'd accidentally have it in a restaurant or something. I really noticed a huge issue with it, but it's kind of like the cows getting grain fed from the late '60s and onward and then realizing you got to give them a tiny bit and then a tiny bit more and then a tiny ... You never realize you're not meant to feel average.

05:28 And so I had started to feel great and then boom. And so I really knew these things were hurting me and I had gluten in every meal. They would have been in my pre 28-year-old self. every single meal, there would have been some form of gluten. And so it was really interesting to see how it was in products that were causing, as they were called health products, breakfast shakes and those sorts of high protein this and low fat that.

05:54 It really started me questioning food companies and questioning our whole system that allows us to trust that they're doing the right thing by us. And they're really, really not, and our government just lets it happen and this is happening all over the world. So, I had been a bit of an activist in my teen years, joined Greenpeace first day of uni. I was that chick. I kind of put it all to bed, you get the good career, the boyfriend, you start on your little societal checklist. I was raised quite conservatively.
Alexx: 06:29 And so, I forgot myself really. And this really woke that up. I was like, "How is this allowed?" I got really riled up by it. And then cut to a few years later when my son was about to be born and I got all the well meaning gifts at the baby shower, I started to think, "Well, I'm really good at reading food labels that why don't I give these labels ago, go and have a look at what's in these products before I start lathering them all on my precious unborn."

06:58 And I was horrified to learn that about 90% of what was in there was petroleum derived. That really then sent me on the journey of learning what these chemicals were, I discovered endocrine disrupting chemical families. I discovered the word fragrance and how that can have up to 140 different chemical compounds inside it's secret little word recipe thing there. And again, my sense of justice around the secrecy and the lack of longterm research done before things are brought out to market.

07:32 Really just, for me, those two things happening in a bit of a wave and a few little things in between made me think I need to focus my skills on education, empowerment, and motivation and nerdiness. I always liked a bit of a nerd factor.

 No, thank you so much for your time. I know that you're a busy man. But first up, for all of those that may not be familiar with your work, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself please.

Stephen

 Sure. I'm a board certified Naturopath doctor. I work out of Boston, Massachusetts here in the US. But we are actually at a probably 90% virtual practice right now. So we are trying to pioneer and push forward the ability to get people functional medicine, lab testing, all over the world. We basically work with people, well, all over the world but we ship to 19 different countries. I'm trying to get people to find out what their underlying root cause imbalances are. And I've just made that my mission in life. I had my own health struggles when I was young. I was able to overcome those with the help of other practitioners and that eventually led me to studying all over the world. In India, China, Sri Lanka, Europe, and all over the US. And my belief is this, is that there is no one best form of medicine but the best form of medicine is that which encompasses and integrates all forms of medicine. And that's what I try to preach to this day.
