Nutrition is a murky area – with many unqualified people calling themselves an expert having done minimal study. Not so with Schaffner, a glamorous, glowing Clinical Nutritionist (meaning she had to do several years of study in clinic after a medical degree with a focus on clinical nutrition, pharmacology, anatomy, nutritional data interpretation, and biochemical imbalances in diseases).
As a result, there’s a razor sharp intensity to her that fills you with confidence that no stone will be left unturned and any fleeting dietary “fads” will have been analysed (and approved or rejected) under her expert eye. Yes, she might send you for blood or stool testing but only if it seems worth it once she’s cast her clinical expertise over your detailed food log (something she asks all clients to keep). Her approach after that is to find the foods that will suit each individual client (many of whom are bankers, depleted mothers and teens). Head to her if you’re about to go through surgery, pregnancy or struggling to shift those last four or five kilos. She has a wealth of metabolic-increasing food and supplement knowledge that gets results.
