An Integrative Approach to Protecting and Enhancing Immunity

This first appeared on Natural Medicine Journal.

In this interview, Russell Jaffe, MD, shares his immune-boosting protocol that can enhance immunity and help patients achieve better overall wellness. In addition to discussing diet, lifestyle, and dietary supplements, Jaffe shares information about an innovative lymphocyte response assay that is now available. Jaffe is an internal medicine physician, clinical pathologist, immunologist, and biochemist.

Russell Jaffe

Russell M. Jaffe, MD, PhD, is CEO and chairman of PERQUE Integrative Health (PIH). He is considered one of the pioneers of integrative and regenerative medicine. Since inventing the world’s first single step amplified (ELISA) procedure in 1984, a process for measuring and monitoring all delayed allergies, Jaffe has continually sought new ways to help speed the transition from our current healthcare system’s symptom reactive model to a more functionally integrated, effective, and compassionate system. PIH is the outcome of years of Jaffe’s scientific research. It brings to market 3 decades of rethinking safer, more effective, novel, and proprietary dietary supplements, supplement delivery systems, diagnostic testing, and validation studies.

Dr. Russell Jaffe’s interview with CoreBrain Journal

An Interesting Biomedical Journey Into New Diagnostic Perceptions

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.

Dr. Jaffe is a maven on biomedical insights that address current denial and innocence. Listening to him is not optional. He does not mince words or dwell in diagnostic platitudes. Be careful, he tends to speak in paragraphs.

Dr. Jaffe Sought to Debunk Biomedical Insights

As a physician and scientist who aspired to be comprehensive, objective, empiric and experiential, Dr. Jaffe started his career searching for deeper biomedical understanding, wisdom, evidence, and insight in mechanisms of health. What is discovered is transformational.

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 a researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.

Personal Biomedical Reinvention

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, causes not consequences and promotes long-term sustainable solutions as an alternative to a system dominated by prescriptive, symptom suppressive solution

Upon refining that new perspective, 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: Biomedical Scientific Contributions

To further understand his perspective, Dr. Jaffe’s practical contributions to clinical medicine and to healthcare policy focus on functional, predictive tests and procedures designed to improve the biomedical precision of both diagnosis and of treatment outcomes; he has authored nearly 100 articles on a variety of related subject with that complexity of perspectives. 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 delayed hypersensitivity / delayed allergy
  • Predictive tests of nutritional/metabolic function
