We are Henry & Henry, raw and natural health coaches. As a result of our own experiences (see below) we recognised a need to provide others with the information and inspiration to re-establish connections to a more naturally supportive way of living. To date we have delivered a number of workshops, classes and talks, challenging perceptions about food and life priorities, and inspiring creative approaches to doing things differently. Additionally, we host 3 course lunches which allow others to experience the excitement of eating the Henry & Henry way; this is food that is vibrant and nourishing, using raw, and unrefined ingredients meaning that everything on offer is naturally free of gluten, dairy and all animal products. The classes, workshops and lunches have been typically attended by people keen to improve a chronic health condition, kick-start a more healthy way of eating, or catalyse a shift towards a happier and more purposeful life.
When we look back at the past couple of decades, we realise that between us, we were experiencing a range of chronic conditions which we no longer have. We think it’s about twelve:
Blood Pressure (high)
Perhaps not surprisingly, we resorted to resignation for cellulite (believing that once you’ve got it, you’re stuck with it), prescription and over-the-counter medicines for many of the others, and to surgery for one of them. None of them worked. Yes, they eased symptoms but nothing ever resolved them, so they persisted or recurred. But they have now ‘gone’ and we have very good reason to believe that it has pretty much everything to do with the way we live; specifically an emphasis on natural food and greater awareness.
Why does Derwenthorpe feature in our company name? Derwenthorpe is our home; it is a sustainable development to the east of York. Inspired and realised by the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, Derwenthorpe is a growing community with architecture that reminds us of living in Northern Europe in earlier phases of our adult lives.
Henry & Henry are passionate supporters of clean air.
We request that any visitors arriving at Derwenthorpe by car please turn off their engines when the vehicle is stationary.
