The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.47
Low tox living with Cara Little
What does ‘low tox’ living mean and how you can achieve it? The products you put on your body and use around your home are just as important as what you put into your body, and a few simple changes can help to limit your exposure to toxins that many products contain. Cara Little, a Pharmacist and founder of Pure Home Body, joins Rebecca to discuss how you can make those changes and what ingredients you should try to avoid and why.

Connect with Cara Little
Cara Little is a mother of 2 active boys and a Pharmacist with a passion for holistic medicine and a dedicated ‘home body’! She is fascinated with gut health, the power of our body to heal itself and has a passion to help common, debilitating diseases including asthma, eczema, allergies, auto-immune diseases and digestive disorders. As a Pharmacist she is aware of the chemicals used within everyday household and beauty products. Products that many use regularly and often have health complaints as a result. These chemicals have a list of side effects they can cause in our bodies ranging from headaches, moodiness, allergies, hormone disruption to cancer. Chemicals within your home place an additional burden on your bodies to break them down and to eliminate them. Not happy with the current ‘eco-friendly’ products on the market and realising that ‘eco-friendly’ did not necessarily mean ‘health friendly’, Cara created Pure Home Body. It started as a range for herself but quickly grew to products her family and friends loved, to now being loved and supported by the community.
