About Ovvio and Anthia
Anthia Koullouros BHSc ND DBM DH MATMS
WE’RE HERE TO REMIND YOU OF WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW.
That good health is the ticket to a spectacular existence – getting there should be simple, instinctual, beautiful. that your body deserves the best – fill it with goodness and watch your cup overflow. we’re here to chime in that life’s too short for ill health. that cultivating wellbeing creates freedom -something we can all aspire to. there’s no great secret; it’s obvious, it’s natural. It’s Ovvio. Ovvio means “obvious” in Italian or “naturally” or “of course”. Because the most beautiful things in life unfold as nature intended.
A WELL STEEPED HISTORY
Anthia began consulting in 1994 and after ten years of clinical experience, opened Ovvio The Organic Health & Lifestyle Store and Naturopathic Clinic. A quaint Paddington terrace reminiscent of old-fashioned apothecaries and teahouses, Ovvio reclaimed the rich history of Naturopathy. From this space, Anthia was inspired to create her own brand of hand-blended, organic teas and herb & spices.

DR JENNY BROMBERGER, OVVIO’S INTEGRATIVE DOCTOR
Integrative doctors are all medical school trained General Practitioners. Jenny chose to extend her study in order to integrate all the body systems and be more agile in uncovering the reasons for symptoms. Integrative doctors focus on nutrition, gut health and optimising trace elements because nutrition is the foundation of our health. Integrative doctors use prescription medicine, but if there is an alternative, natural option it is preferred. We commonly deal with autoimmune disease, such as thyroid disease where we use different kinds of thyroid supplements to optimise function, and have approaches to chronic fatigue, adrenal hypofunction and even mental health problems. She also prefers to prescribe bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic when supplementation is required and utilised dedicated compounding pharmacies for this purpose. Jenny also happens to love the arts and supports independent theatre.
