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.
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.

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. Examples of his contributions to molecular biology and clinical diagnostics include:.
Honored as an International Scientist of 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.
Lane Award, and the U. 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.
