Dr. Russell Jaffe Speaks on Functional Immunology for NMSA

Dr Jaffe2The NUHS chapter of the Naturopathic Medical Students Association welcomed guest speaker Dr. Russell Jaffe on July 23, 2015. Dr. Jaffe, accompanied by former NUHS faculty member Dr. Erica Mennerik, gave a question and answer presentation on functional immunology.

Dr. Jaffe's approach to immunology relies first and foremost in removing obstacles to recovery and evoking a healing response.  He introduced specific natural treatment methods utilizing a very high grade of buffered l-ascorbate (a particular form of vitamin C), sharing examples of positive patient outcomes using his recommended protocols.  He also explained the most effective choices for flavonoid and flavenol supplementation.

Students posed questions to Dr. Jaffe regarding the application of his methods to cancer and autoimmune disorder patients, as well as questions related to oxidative stress and less optimal preparations of vitamin C.

After Dr. Jaffe's presentation, Dr. Mennerick discussed how her applications of several of Dr. Jaffe's principles have helped her with patient cases that had been unresponsive to previous interventions. She also spoke to the value of lab testing in determining potential causes of autoimmune disorders

Dr. Jaffe received his BS, MD, and PhD from the Boston University School of Medicine. He is board certified in Clinical Pathology and Chemical Pathology, and has served on the senior staff of the National Institutes of Health. Starting out wanting to disprove holistic forms of care, Dr. Jaffe transformed into a researcher in areas such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts. He has received numerous awards such as the Merck, Shark & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. Meritorious Service Award.  He is the founder of Perque Integrative Health.
