Liu Xinyu (Edwin Low): Embracing a Nontoxic Wellness Journey

Meet Edwin Low, a Singaporean with a diverse background in news editing, information publishing, and translation. For over two decades, he has been deeply immersed in the world of holistic wellness. In the early 2000s, Edwin authored the health book “Stop Your Health Being Stolen” and founded the health food store “Nutrimax Organic,” which later transformed into “Nontoxic Wellness.”

Driven by the realization of nutritional gaps in daily diets, Edwin delved into the profound impact of diet and nutrition on human health and recovery. His passion for “prevention over cure” and “dietary healthcare” sparked a mission to share valuable insights and dispel misconceptions about well-being.

Beyond writing books, Edwin conducts health seminars, dedicated to enlightening others with health-related knowledge and encouraging a healthier, happier lifestyle for all. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019, he has been actively sharing wellness practices like qigong, yoga, and meditation through online platforms.
