Our visionary founder
BHSc ND DBM DH MATMS
Anthia Koullouros has spent 20 years consulting as a Naturopath, but her roots in holistic health and herbal medicine extend much deeper. Inspired by a faded nutritional manual on her parent’s shelf when she was 12, she embarked on a lifetime of research and learning. In 1994, Anthia opened a clinic in Paddington and began her Naturopathic career. Combining Homoeopathy, Herbal Medicine and Nutrition to provide clients with life-long tools for health, she continues to champion food as the ultimate medicine and is passionate about educating and inspiring people to take care of their minds and bodies with natural, sustainable solutions.
After a decade of helping people heal and bloom, it was time for Anthia's practice to evolve. She found a quintessential Paddington corner terrace and opened Ovvio: The Organic Lifestyle Store & Naturopathic Clinic. Paying homage to the 18th Century Apothecary, herbal remedies, antique china and rustic, organic offerings brought old-world charm to modern Naturopathy.
In 2011, Ovvio's continuing evolution saw the store & clinic relocate to its current home in Five Ways, Paddington. A fresh façade and charming location inspires every customer to cherish the beauty of health over a warm cup of tea.
Anthia's naturopathic consults offer a no-nonsense, fad-free, honest and informative approach to achieving health and happiness. As an extension of her love for education, Anthia released her eBooks; the 'I Am Food' Guidebook and companion Recipe Book, which have since become a hardcopy book. In 'I Am Food', Anthia explains how to 'unscramble the scramble' and transition from eating processed foods to eating the food that’s best for your body, soul and the planet. Simple, nourishing, traditional dietary foundations underscore her philosophy.
