Juliet Schaffer, BSc. Nutritional Medicine (BSc. NutMed.), mBANT, CNHC

Hello, my name is Juliet Schaffer and I am a fully qualified and accredited Registered Nutritional Therapist with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Medicine from The University of West London. As a strong proponent of the Functional Medicine approach to health management, I apply the science of nutrition to support the body back to optimum health.
I provide professional, personalised nutritional advice addressing all aspects of health and well-being including gastrointestinal disorders (e.g. acid reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, bowel habit irregularity, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis) autoimmume dysfunction (e.g. Thyroid disorders including Graves' Disease and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritic conditions, Lupus and Sjogren's Syndrome) food sensitivities, women's health issues (including ovarian cysts and PMS), chronic Lyme Disease and healthy weight management.
My clinic is based in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire (CM21 0AT) and I cover Hertfordshire, Essex and North London. Consultations are also available via Skype if preferred. Free parking and disabled access is available on-site.
The athletic ambitions of my two children have provided ample first-hand knowledge and experience of the value of nutrition in supporting and enhancing amateur and professional sporting performance. This has been underpinned by completion of a Personalised Sports Nutrition Course provided by The Centre for Nutrition and Lifestyle Management (CNELM) and validated by Middlesex University.
What is Nutritional Medicine?
Nutritional Medicine uses nutrition science to develop health-enhancing dietary and lifestyle practices to promote and support optimum health and well-being. Nutritional Medicine can identify potential nutritional imbalances and determine how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. Through addressing these underlying imbalances, Nutritional Medicine can support the body towards regaining and maintaining peak health. Nutritional Therapists consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a "one size fits all" approach.
About the Consultation
A nutritional therapy consultation at Evolve Nutrition starts with client completion of a nutritional health questionnaire prior to the initial face-to-face consultation. This provides a detailed background of the client's health concern and status, family and medical history, plus dietary and lifestyle habits, all of which is used to conduct any necessary research in advance of the first consultation to ensure that the most up-to-date and effective dietary and lifestyle advice is available. During the initial face-to-face consultation, further questioning of the client's specific health concern is undertaken to determine contributing factors to his/her health complaint. Together with the client, a bespoke nutritional and lifestyle programme is developed to address specific health aims. This may include the recommendation of supplements and/or functional testing (priced individually) where appropriate.
A follow-up consultation is required 4-6 weeks after the initial consultation and involves a detailed assessment of the client's health progress and an adjustment of the nutritional programme to accommodate the changing health status and goals. Further follow-up consultations may be required depending on the duration and severity of symptoms.
I offer email support between consultations to answer any queries which may arise, and to provide encouragement and on-going advice.

I first went along to see Juliet in November 2015, she was recommended to me by a friend. I had been suffering with muscular aches, joint pain and was always feeling lethargic. I also suffered from Stomach Pains and bloating. I was regularly seeing my doctor and chiropractor but to no avail, any solutions provided would only work temporarily.
Juliet recommended a change of diet, in particular cutting out Gluten. I was very sceptical at first, and found the change quite difficult as I had to prepare and cook meals from scratch, and didn’t always have the energy to do this. However, five months on, I’d never touch Gluten again! My muscular problems have completely disappeared and I have so much more energy. My Stomach Pain has also improved, I no longer suffer from bloating, and Juliet and I are continuing to work on my other symptoms relating to this. I am happy to say that other minor ailments (that I wasn’t too concerned about) have also disappeared as a result of changing my diet. I also lost a stone in weight, which again was an added bonus!
Juliet is very approachable, and what I find fantastic, is that she always responds to my emails with answers to the many questions I have. I feel fitter and stronger than I have done in years, and I would highly recommend that if you are suffering with your health in some way that you contact Juliet.

Juliet has been a huge help to me during my gruelling treatment. I truly believe that with the support, advice and education provided by Juliet my body has been better able to cope with the toxic effects of chemotherapy; enabling me to bounce back far quicker than anticipated following treatment. Juliet is clearly extremely knowledgeable and has inspired me to explore how we can use food to heal our bodies. Further, she is extremely ethical in her approach; as she carries out her own research into how any supplements may effect my specific drug regime and requests I seek approval from my oncologist for any recommendations she makes. Juliet provides exciting and interesting recipes for me to try, which are delicious and healthy, but she also looks at the practicalities of fitting good food choices in with my lifestyle. I cannot recommend her highly enough, particularly for those who are dealing with ill health.

Juliet had been recommended to me by another business owner. I met Juliet and it was clear very quickly that she was very knowledgeable about her subject. I have been able to resolve a number of the food intolerance issues I had and feel so much better after taking Juliet's advice. In addition I have lost a lot of weight and feel happier and healthier as a result. Juliet is someone I wished I had met years ago, I am glad I have found her and have already recommended her to friends and colleagues. I would have no hesitation is saying she is an excellent nutritionist.

Consulting Evolve Nutrition is one of the best decisions I have ever made. By adopting the prescribed dietary changes and taking regular exercise, I lost an incredible 3 stone in 3 months. I've tried many fad diets over the years but they were very hard to stick to and ultimately any weight I lost came back on very quickly. The difference this time round is that I have adopted Juliet's recommendations as a lifestyle change not a diet. I am enjoying my food more than ever and have been amazed at how great I feel. The specific condition for which I consulted Juliet has disappeared and in addition I have masses of energy. I wish I had done this 20 years ago and highly recommend a visit to Evolve Nutrition. It will change your life!
