Anthia Koullouros, Naturopath and Founder of Ovvio Organics
Anthia Koullouros is a renowned naturopath, herbalist, founder of Ovvio Organics, a wellness brand and a health and food visionary.
“I’m 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. I’m 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”.
Ovvio means ‘obvious’ or ‘naturally’ in Italian.
In 2004 Anthia found a quintessential Paddington corner terrace and opened Ovvio: The Organic Lifestyle Store & Naturopathic Clinic. Paying homage to the 18th Century Apothecary, herbal remedies and organic offerings she has brought old-world charm to modern Naturopathy, not only through her practice, but through beautiful and delicate blends of teas, herbs and spices that served and sold through Australia’s best cafés, restaurants and fine food and health food stores.
Anthia believes that education is the cornerstone to debunking food and health myths, and providing clear and simple, no-nonsense, fad-free, sustainable solutions that feed the mind and body. She wrote 'I Am Food', published by Penguin Australia to 'unscramble the scramble' and explain how to transition from eating processed foods to eating the food that’s best for your body, soul and the planet.
Anthia’s expert commentary has appeared in Women’s lifestyle titles such as Vogue, Wellbeing and across SMH.com.au, Australian Financial Review, ninemsn Kitchen, The Juice Daily, rescu.com.au and I Quit Sugar. She regularly speaks at leading industry and corporate events, and enjoys the support and camaraderie of leading Australian chefs and restaurants who share the love and reverence for fresh ingredients.
