About Dr Libby

My mission is to educate and inspire people, improving their health and happiness, and through that process, create a ripple effect that transforms the world.

Some people have a unique and contagious effervescence about them; an x-factor that compels you to want to be around them; a magnetism that evokes a desire to share in their knowledge; and an energy that, of its own accord, truly inspires and motivates.

Dr Libby, PhD is one such person.

Dr Libby Weaver (nee Ellis) is one of Australasia’s leading nutritional biochemists, author and speaker, now based in Sydney, Australia.

With an extraordinary ability to relate to all demographics, from all walks of life, Dr Libby is a dynamic and highly experienced presenter, who can successfully educate 9 people in a boardroom or 9,000 people on a stage alongside America’s Dr Oz.

She is a five times number one bestselling author of the books Accidentally Overweight, Rushing Woman’s Syndrome, Real Food Chef, Beauty from the Inside Out and Real Food Kitchen.

With a background in biochemistry and a natural ability to break down even the most complex of concepts into layman’s terms, Dr Libby’s health messages are globally relevant, which is why her holistic approach and unique form of education is embraced by audiences across the world.

Her PhD examined the biochemical and nutritional factors in children with autism, and her findings have since changed the way the condition is treated in Australia and New Zealand.

Armed with abundant knowledge, scientific research and a true desire to help others see their own light and beauty, Dr Libby empowers and inspires people to take charge of their health and happiness.

It’s no surprise that when it comes to achieving and maintaining ultimate health and wellbeing, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness described her as a “one stop shop in achieving and maintaining ultimate health and wellbeing”.

About Chris


In 2006 Chris made a decision that would change his life in more ways than he could imagine.

He enrolled to participate in a 5 day event at Gwinganna Health Retreat. He was particularly taken by the week long presentations from Dr Libby Ellis. He resolved that the best thing he could do for his health was to get Dr Libby to move in with him. In July 2008 he was lucky enough to marry Libby and Dr Libby Weaver was created.

Chris has been the driving force behind Dr Libby as together they have developed the brand you see today. In May 2012, Chris left his CEO role at the Auckland Racing Club to assume the role of CEO and Chairman of Dr Libby Ltd full time. He brings 26 years of business experience developed in Leadership Roles at Ellerslie, Lion Nathan, Coca-Cola and Virgin.

You will leave the session with a nutrition plan, insight into your emotional landscape (where that is necessary) and herbal medicine if / when necessary.

Jenny gets great results with her clients as a very happy lady wrote to us recently. This is truly why we do what we do! Nothing gives us greater joy than witnessing a shift in someone’s health. Jenny is a superstar within the Dr Libby Team. We are very blessed to have her as part of our team.

For years I have suffered from PMT …. severe mood swings, low energy, erratic angry outbursts, sadness, depression and a daily roller coaster of emotions. With my marriage hanging by a string and two small children unsure of which ‘mum’ they would get today… Someone suggested my hormones may be out of balance and to see Jenny at Dr Libbys office. After 2 weeks of being on the herbs Jenny gave me I felt calmer, more balanced and more energetic. After 2 months it has completely changed my life. I literally feel like a different person. I can regulate my own emotions, I can deal with the stress of daily life, I am happier, balanced and in control of my life and have a heap of energy. My kids are more settled and well behaved and my husband and I are more in love than we have been. Thank you Jenny!!!! You changed my world!!! - Sue (Auckland)
