My nutritional guardian angel
I first heard about Audrey through a friend of mine – she was my nutritional guardian angel, who appeared by magic just at the right time! My diet and eating habits were something I’d been meaning to address for a while, and by a while, I mean years…time ticked by, health issues and niggles persisted, but I just couldn’t stare the problem in the face and take action. Until Audrey came along! She takes the time to create a detailed profile of your health and habits, and more importantly, she takes time….time to listen, and time to question…without judgement. Together we embarked on a series of sessions which took a holistic approach to tackling my nutritional health. Small changes, easy recipes, altering habits…everything made sense, and everything was so do-able. Working with Audrey has transformed how I feel about food and the choices I make in my diet and lifestyle choices. If your looking for long-lasting impact and an holistic approach that blends the science of nutrition with the principles of well-being, then Audrey can be your guardian angel too!
Working with Audrey was such an eye-opener!
Meticulous, highly knowledgeable and entirely approachable, Audrey understands how food impacts your body at a scientific level and can help you on a path of discovery, recovery and well-being. You wouldn’t necessarily think that learning about making healthy and nutritious choices would be fun, but with Audrey’s ability to share her uplifting attitude to life.. and food, you will be surprised to find out it is!
Great Kimchi workshop
Thanks Audrey for your wonderful workshop today on fermented food. We prepared our own fermentation paste and prepped the veg, selected delicious spices and made our first Kimchi, like a Korean cousin to sauerkraut. We tasted fermented foods from different stages of fermentation, all delicious. I’m excited to nurse and burp my own jars over the coming weeks and can’t wait to taste them. Lovely to meet the other two ladies as well. I learned so much from this session and really enjoyed tasting new foods and meeting new people in your warm and welcoming home. It’s a bonus that fermented foods have such abundant health benefits. Loved it and can’t wait for next time.
Shopping tour in Den Haag
As a new arrival in The Hague Audrey’s food tour of the city has been invaluable. Getting an insiders perspective on where to procure all the supplies I may need to provide a healthy larder helps set me one on the right track.
We toured around the local neighbourhoods as well as venturing in to explore Chinatown stores and much in-between. Apart from the practical orientation around the many different local shops, real value is added in being able to pick Audrey’s brains about how to put different ingredients together in different ways is super helpful for someone like me who has historically had quite a limited repertoire of recipes.
A really useful and enjoyable afternoon was spent getting to know The Hague. Whether a new arrival like myself or looking to explore alternative ways to approach food in the city I would highly recommend this tour.
I have been feeling overweight and have been diagnosed with PCOS when I started to see Audrey. Through 4 months of consultation with Audrey, I was able to change my eating habits and lifestyle in general. I really liked her holistic approach, going deep to understand my eating and life habits. Also Audrey is able to break down a task as big as lifestyle change into workable actions to ensure small goals are achieved. After first session, I was already equipped with ways to control my blood sugar level. I got all positive results back from my doctor now and I feel like I am able to continue the new eating habits. Highly recommend Audrey!
“Audrey is a great professional”
Audrey is a great professional with a lot of knowledge about how our body works and how everything we eat, drink, do, affects each system of the human body. She can pass to someone the knowledge and wisdom about her subject of expertise by breaking it down to comprehensive pieces. The fact that her advice comes from a holistic understanding of the concept “nutrition and other body funtions” makes it unique to work with her. I would strongly recommend Audrey to anyone who would like to see the topic of nutrition from a different, guilt-free angle! Thank you Audrey for this great journey! …. ‘Athena Stou’
The proof of the pudding is in the eating
I approached Audrey for help when I was having a lot of intense menopausal symptoms that were very distracting and uncomfortable. I was trying to manage them myself, but wasn’t getting anywhere. Audrey took a good look at my medical history and diet and gave me excellent advice on what I could do to help lessen my symptoms and generally feel better. The thing that impressed me the most was the long list of foods I should and could be eating, which was far longer than the list of foods that I should try to stay away from. She included recipes, meal ideas and specific foods as well as supplements, for the things I needed help with most. When I had questions later about other issues, I received more ideas and more information to help me through. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating: I do feel better when I’m eating more of these foods, using the supplements, plus exercising, and meditating. I highly recommend Audrey’s expertise!
Fantastic online Workshop!
After sitting down to a feast with the group and enjoying the food we had cooked together this evening, I just wanted to send my thanks to Audrey Dickinson for such a fabulous cooking workshop! The flavours were delicious and I really saw the benefit of cooking in my own home with your direction. It gives me much more confidence to repeat the recipes on my own (even the aubergine BBQ’ing on my stove!). It was lovely to chat with everyone on the course too – old friends and new! Thank you Audrey for offering something different in these unusual times, and for sharing your knowledge on how these foods benefit our health!
Audrey is a professional that sees you like a person
Audrey is a professional that sees you like a person indeed and not like a patient. I’m very glad to have found her. I suffer of migraine, Hashimoto Thyroiditis and I can’t get pregnant again. I wanted to find the base problem and fix It. It’s is the first time in 20 years (the time that I’m fighting with my health issues) that somebody cares about me, and tries to find out what is really going on. She cares very much about your health and she really listens to your complains. In every appointment she has everything prepared for you. She is always willing to help you, she provides a lot of information about your health situation. She is very dedicated and generous. She shares with you recipes on how you can improve your diet with a lot of new ideas. Not only does she care about you physical issues, but also she is aware about your feelings, because she sees our body as a whole. My symptoms have improved a lot! I still have migraine, but every month they last less, and the pain don’t stop my life. I believe that if I continue with my nutritional coaching my body is going to get better.
I tried everything in the past and now I can see that this is working, we know what is working bad in my body and we are trying to fix it, it will take time.
Help with our daughter’s digestive issues.
We came to see Audrey for help with our daughter’s digestive issues. From the very beginning of our contact with her, she was supportive, friendly and quickly built trust and rapport with us. She has guided us on a nutritional coaching journey over the last 18 months, to resolve our daughter’s digestive issues. Audrey supported us every step of the way, with clear plans, advice and practical suggestions. It was incredibly easy to communicate with Audrey, both via email, in person or digitally. She is instantly likeable, with a naturally warm and nurturing nature. Because of this, Audrey made me feel comfortable talking about health issues from my very first contact with her. It was clear that she had a good understanding of my issues, as she asked me lots of great follow-up questions, and offered many practical tips that I could incorporate into my daily health & nutritional routine.
How to improve hormones with nutrition
After a few months of working with Audrey I feel so much better and have learned a lot more about nutrition and how to take care of my body. My initial problems were with my hormones and I was interested in how to improve hormones with nutrition.I felt that Audrey took the time to listen to me and asked a lot of questions.I liked that she made notes and referred to what we discussed. I lost some weight, experienced the benefit of eating more coloured vegetables and adding protein to my meals and also the supplements are helping.
Audrey is a wonderful person with a lot of knowledge, passion and dedication.
Happy gut 🙂
Audrey is passionate about her work, extremely knowledgeable, and was incredibly supportive and encouraging throughout my whole program. I appreciated the time and patience that went into the deep and thorough investigation into my health, and the drafting of protocols for me to follow. I’ve been able to make lasting changes in my diet and lifestyle, which I would never have thought was possible! And I understand so much more about why my body was doing what it was doing, and how I now have the tools (and determination) to not fall back into that state again. I would definitely recommend Audrey to anyone who is not getting results with conventional or medical treatment methods, or trying things out on your own. The right guidance, and the right foods have the power to heal us!
Wholesome holistic healing
I began my journey with Audrey 6 months ago. As someone suffering from severe endometriosis, I am no stranger to terrible cramps during my period and severe PMS. My husband and I have also been trying to start our little family for many years but my body simply won’t play along. Audrey’s guided approach considered my diet and my lifestyle as a tailored approach for my body. Within 4 weeks of working with Audrey and changing my diet, I no longer suffer from pain during my period and since then my body continues to feel strong, healthy and pain free. This is the first time in more than 10 years!!
My biggest AHA moment was when I strayed away from the protocol for a few weeks and my body responded and flaired up. It showed me the power of putting the best into your body.
As a result of what feels like guided holistic therapy with Audrey, I’ve also realized that my body needs to heal before making space for a little human.
Audrey is warm, kind and knowledgeable. She truly listens and responds with solutions from better sleep management, relaxation and stress management to diet – a holistic approach. I am extremely grateful for the work we have done together and her support in healing my body and my mind
After having trouble conceiving naturally, and then through IVF I was at a complete loss.
My name is Lindsay and after having trouble conceiving naturally, and then through IVF I was at a complete loss. After two losses, I felt it was necessary to start to look within and what I could control and that’s how I found Audrey. In the Netherlands, I did not really agree with the attention I felt my situation needed. I worked with Audrey to understand how my body functions, what could be contributing to some of the reasons I was not able to conceive and made some changes. I can honestly say I learned so much about how my body works that my confidence to continue IVF has a whole new outlook. I really cannot say enough good things about this process with Audrey, and she’s just an awesome person to begin with! I will always come back to what Audrey and I discovered together as I grow older and found useful lifestyle changes I will practice forever.
I have a better understanding about nutrition and how to manage reflux!
Even though I eat quite healthy, I’ve been having acid reflux problems for a long time and I was looking for longer term help rather than the short term solutions offered to me. I heard about Audrey through the “Fabulous After Fifty” podcast. Her conversation about nutrition and how we relate to food was appealing to me and I contacted her. Since September we have been working together finding out about the possible causes for my symptoms and working on improving my diet to healing. Audrey makes sure that causes and possible solutions are understood. She shares articles, sources, information and recipes as well as always being accessible to answer questions. The outcome so far is that I have a better understanding about nutrition and what type of food is better for me and makes me feel healthy. Acid reflux is almost fully gone, and if it flares up again I have a plan of approach that will help me on the longer term. I am happy that I can again enjoy a great dish of Mexican spicy food! – Gabriela
Realistic, Accessible, Easy changes!
Q: Was the nutritional guidance realistic to implement into your lifestyle?
A: Yes, I already eat quite healthy but working with Audrey helped me realize how to better combine different types of foods as well as integrating new nutrients to my diet. No big lifestyle changes, all quite accessible and easy.
Audrey has very patiently and diligently guided me through the journey of learning more about my nutrition/health situation. I really appreciate her holistic approach to addressing this topic and the practical guidance she has provided.
Food habits impact well-being and digestion
Improved HPV and vaginal health through nutrition.
I came to work with Audrey after I got diagnosed with HPV and CIN III. I was seeking support with healing and improving my vaginal health. Audrey was very helpful, reaching out and sharing specific recipes, supplements and ways to improve my nutrition to support my body the best I could during and after getting treatment for CIN III (LEEP). I just got the results of my 6 month check up and am happy to share that my HPV has cleared (and no more cervical dysplasia). I also notice improvements in my menstrual cycle, including less PMS symptoms and more blood during my menstruation. I highly recommend working with Audrey if you want to improve your nutrition to benefit your hormonal and menstrual cycle.
I am writing this testimonial to wholeheartedly recommend Audrey, who played an instrumental role in our fertility journey. Four years into our struggle with infertility, Audrey entered our lives, and her expertise and support were truly transformative.
Audrey demonstrated an exceptional level of knowledge and attention to detail, particularly in her thorough approach to detailed lab-requests and tailored food plan.
Beyond her professional expertise, Audrey became an invaluable sparring partner in our journey. Her ability to relate to our experiences, empathize with our challenges, and offer insightful guidance made the difficult moments more manageable. It was evident that Audrey was not just a healthcare professional; she was a compassionate ally invested in our success.
In a process such as IVF where timing is crucial, Audrey consistently made herself accessible, providing reassurance and guidance whenever we needed it. Her commitment to being present throughout our journey was a pillar of support that we could always rely on.
Today, we proudly celebrate the joyous addition to our family, our son Noah. This achievement would not have been possible without Audrey’s guidance, expertise, and unwavering support. We are immensely grateful for the role she played in making our dream of parenthood a reality.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Audrey to anyone navigating the challenging path of infertility. Her professionalism, empathy, and dedication are qualities that set her apart, and we are forever thankful for the positive impact she had on our lives.
