Long term stress has real consequences in our minds and bodies.

I’ve seen this in my clinical practice for the last 27 years. In a culture of relentless indoctrination of productivity and perfectionism, we keep pushing through the stress and bounce between fight, flight, and freeze.  We control stress by striving, even more, working harder, trying harder, and perfecting. We rely on caffeine and sugar to push us through. Yet, with all this pushing, rushing, and doing, stress makes a home in our minds and bodies. We experience chronic illness, muscle tightness, wear and tear, pain and inflammation, sleeplessness, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, immune dysregulation and fatigue, and damage from using excessive uppers and downers to cope - caffeine, drugs, alcohol, and food. Shut down or burn out, is our body saying we need to rest more. Has stress overwhelmed you, changed your behaviour, brought on health problems, hampered healing, or created more suffering and dysregulation? Please note: this program does not replace therapy and treatment with your psychologist / psychiatrist. It is an adjunct program that helps you create a foundation of health for regulation & deep healing.

  • Stress is insidious; it draws on our reserves. Nourish your nervous system with whole seasonal foods; good hydration; fresh, clean air; sunlight; movement; a good night's sleep; and rest.

  • Learn how to flexibly transition between the different states of your nervous system - fight, flight, freeze & regulated.

  • Eliminate the need for addictive substances such as caffeine, alcohol, and sugar to make you feel energised and on top of things.

  • Honour and validate all your emotions and learn how to protect your energy.

  • Reset your gut biome & digestive processes to support your gut brain axis.

  • Take a holistic approach to managing your stress symptoms - using foods as medicine, herbal medicine and supplements.

  • Create healthy habits and rituals to support a regulated nervous system.

  • Heal, ground, create energy, have clarity, perspective, and possibilities, and experience joy when regulated.

  • Your nervous system is your personal security system - constantly surveilling the scene. Its purpose is protection and connection. Move towards, move away, freeze or regulate. Befriending your nervous system positions you in a place of response vs. reaction when it comes to stress.

We hope you can join us!

The program kicks off on Monday 7th November 2022. Welcome to a new way of living.

About your instructor


Anthia Koullouros

This year marks 27 years of naturopathic clinical practice. It's hard for me to believe it too! I graduated as a naturopath, homoeopath, and herbalist at the end of 1994 and started consulting almost immediately. My Naturopathic Clinic, Apothecary, and Apotheca by Anthia Tea & Tisane Store is located in Paddington, Sydney Australia. This is where you will find me seeing patients, blending herbal tonics and creating teas & tisanes. Akademeia by Anthia, our online portal, is where you will find my Courses & Programs, based on over 27 years of Naturopathic know how & clinical experience. My book I am Food - Eating Your Way To Health was published in 2014. It is currently undergoing a new edit and will be relaunched at the end of the year.

How to learn the tools to help you thrive.

by Kate.S

This course was life changing for me. I was able to build on the spiritual work I have done to be more present in my life. It gave me an understanding of poly vagal theory. I was able to separate out the functions of my nervous system- fight, flight, freeze, fawn ... and for the first time I understood these were normal. The state I really want to be in is regulated- deeply open, compassionate, content, satisfied, calm, still, loving. I therefore now have the awareness of where I am at and the triggers for this. When I am regulated I can coregulate with others. Anthia is highly knowledgable and ties these concepts to her area of speciality- nutrition and gut health. That is a very interesting connection. Anthia presents in this course as a regulated trainer- one with a big heart and generosity. She shares from her own journey which is very powerful. Many thanks, Kate S.
