About Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN
For half a century, Dr. Jaffe has been investigating, researching, and communicating. As a physician and scientist, he aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric, and experiential. Dr. Jaffe started his career that included a passion for deeper understanding, wisdom, evidence, and insight into mechanisms of good and ill health.
Starting from intense curiosity and learned skepticism, Dr. Jaffe sought to debunk the best-known advocates of a variety of traditional 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 as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture, active meditation, systems biology, and manipulative arts.
