Dr. Russell Jaffe

Dr. Russell Jaffe MD, PhD, CCN

Welcome

For the last 30+ years, Dr. Russell Jaffe has been rethinking healthcare. As a physician and scientist who aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric, and experiential, Dr. Jaffe started his career searching for deeper understanding, wisdom, evidence, and insight into mechanisms of health.

Through intense curiosity and learned skepticism, Dr. Jaffe sought to debunk the best-known advocates of a variety of health promotion and healing systems. What started as a journey to disprove holistic forms of care became a rich educational experience that transformed Dr. Jaffe into a student and then researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, systems biology, and manipulative arts.

Through this journey, Dr. Jaffe came to a stunning realization: the Western model of healthcare he studied, trained in, and practiced for so long was fundamentally flawed. He learned that symptom suppression is not the same as health prevention; sick care is not the same as healthcare; information is not the same as inspiration. Most importantly, he learned that treating disease is not the same as treating people.

Jaffe teaching

The discoveries Dr. Jaffe made during this period of enlightenment inspired a rethinking for how Dr. Jaffe would teach and practice medicine. He became intrinsically involved in healthcare policy and became an original pioneer of the preventative healthcare movement that is only now reaching mainstream attention.

With exponentially rising healthcare costs, dramatic increases in chronic disease, and shrinking access to affordable health coverage, the world is just starting to understand the flaws within the mainstream healthcare system that Dr. Jaffe uncovered 30 years before.

Predicting that change would one day come, Dr. Jaffe went on to create a series of organizations that collectively, give people sustainable and integrative healthcare solutions that focus on personalized methods of care, a true rethinking of the current system.

Today, Dr. Jaffe is saving more lives and ensuring better life quality for more people than ever before. In an effort to give others access to this same quality care, we are actively pursuing media channels that can help us spread Dr. Jaffe’s message and give people the news they need to know to live healthier, happier lives.

About Dr. Jaffe

Dr. Russell Jaffe received his BS, MD and Ph.D from the Boston University School of Medicine in 1972. He completed residency training in clinical chemistry at the National Institutes of Health (1973 – 1976), remaining on the permanent senior staff until 1979. He is board certified in Clinical Pathology and in Chemical Pathology.

As a physician and scientist who aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric and experiential, Dr. Jaffe started his career searching for deeper understanding, wisdom, evidence and insight in mechanisms of health. Through intense curiosity and learned skepticism, Dr. Jaffe sought to debunk the best known advocates of a variety of health promotion and healing systems. What started as a journey to disprove holistic forms of care became a rich educational experience that transformed Dr. Jaffe into a student and then researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.

Motivated by his personal transition, Dr. Jaffe went on to reinvent himself professionally by starting the Health Studies Collegium, a think tank that focuses on sustainable solutions to global health needs, with his fellow colleagues. For the last 30 years, Dr. Jaffe has advocated a system that treats people not diagnoses, cause not consequence, and promotes long term sustainable solutions as an alternative to a system dominated by prescriptive, symptom suppressive solutions. Dr. Jaffe’s cumulative experiences enabled him to take his efforts one step further and build PERQUE Integrative Health, a company that offers the world scientifically proven, integrative health solutions that speed the transition from sick care to healthful caring.

Dr. Jaffe’s practical contributions to clinical medicine and to healthcare policy focus on functional, predictive tests and procedures designed to improve the precision of both diagnosis and of treatment outcomes; he has authored nearly 100 articles on the subject. Examples of his contributions to molecular biology and clinical diagnostics include:

  • Early colon cancer detection tests
  • Predictive tests of cardiovascular health and function based on changes in blood clotting and systemic repair status
  • Quantification of the number of concurrent platelet binding sites needed for collagen to activate platelet-induced blood clotting
  • Identification of the mechanism that controls collagen activation of platelets
  • Antigen ultra-purification for use in high sensitivity immunology assays
  • Mechanism of connective tissue cross-link inhibition by d-penicillamine
  • Predictive tests of immune function and hypersensitivity / delayed allergy
  • Predictive tests of nutritional / metabolic function

Honored as an International Scientist of 2003 by the IBC, Oxford, England, UK for his lifetime contributions to clinical medicine, biochemistry, immunology, methodology, and integrative health policy, Dr. Jaffe is appreciative of the recognition of his peers. He currently serves on the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology and coordinates its certification training program. America’s Top Physicians 2005, Who’s Who in America; Who’s Who in Medicine and Science; Who’s Who in Business and Engineering all have included him in recognition of his contributions to science and community.

Dr. Jaffe is the recipient of the Merck, Sharp & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. Meritorious Service Award. He teaches and lectures widely on nutritional immunology and treatment guidelines for chronic autoimmune and immune dysfunction syndromes and has helped elucidate the causes and consequences of immune defense and repair functions in health and disease.

Fight Acidosis—Eat Well and Thrive  

Acid-alkaline balance refers to this delicate equilibrium between the amount of acids and non-acids that are found in our body’s fluids and tissues. Modern diet and life in general today bombards our body with acids all day long leading to over-acidity or acidosis. Though the body is designed to neutralize this acidity with its alkaline reserves (e.g. minerals from the bone), if unchecked, the compounding effect of chronic acidosis can lead to a host of health problems.

We bring to you a tool called the “Joy of Living: The Alkaline Way,” which we will refer to as The Alkaline Way, going forward.  The purpose of this resource is not only to introduce the nuts and bolts of an alkalinizing diet but also to provide valuable practices and protocols that can promote overall health and well-being. What you choose to eat, drink, think, and do can have a profound influence on the quality of your life. As you complete the steps of this program, your body will transform naturally.

By following The Alkaline Way, you will gently transition away from damaging foods or practices and move toward optimal health.
