Dr. Jaffe started his career looking for the ultimate insights in mechanisms of health. His goal was to debunk the best known advocates of a variety of health promotion and healing systems. But, as he tried to disprove holistic forms of care, he began to realize there just might be something there. Eventually he became a believer, a student and then researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.

Russ then 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.

Russ has recently written Joy in Living: The Alkaline Way for his company PERQUE.
