The science of food

Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is based on the scientific principle that food provides the nutrients needed to heal the body and to help bring us back to a state of optimum health and vitality.


Many conditions respond well to nutritional therapy but the art of this science is to understand why and how these conditions developed, which is very unique to each individual.

Taking A Functional Medicine Approach 

Henley Nutrition uses the Functional Medicine approach to client assessment.  Functional medicine is based on nutrition and biochemistry, it considers the reserves of amino acids, minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and looks at the ecosystem of the bowel, neuro-biochemistry and the immune system.   It connects physiological symptoms understanding that none of the organ systems work in isolation, it focuses the user on how diseases are connected: for example, the insulin resistance of diabetes contributes to the inflammation involved in arthritis.

Incorporating Naturopathy 

Naturopathy blends modern scientific knowledge with a traditional medicine approach incorporating natural therapies of botanical medicine - herbs, clinical nutrition, homeopathy along with healthy lifestyle promotion.  A naturopathy practitioner may prescribe natural remedies such as herbs, homeopathy, tissue salts or nutritional supplements.  In many situations a combined approach of herbal tinctures and supplements can provide a safe and effective supportive treatment.  

What to expect 

Agreeing realistic goals within your programme will help you reach your health objective. The approach is personal and tailored to your specific needs and adjusts to your environment.  


Nutritional therapy is seen as a change in lifestyle which brings your body back to optimum health. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to readjust into balance.

Ongoing studies show nutritional therapy can benefit a range of age groups.  Consistently it is shown to support optimum energy levels, healthy blood-sugar balance, emotional and psychological well-being, gastrointestinal health, hormonal imbalances and intolerance to a broad range of food groups.
