Dr. Russell Jaffereceived 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 Chemical Pathology. In this CBJ/246, his second interview at CBJ , we discuss a variety of issues regarding measuring gut immunity in relation to brain function. Yes, you got it - immunity matters with brain function, and Dr. Jaffe is a global expert on that essential connection.
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 a researcher in such areas a Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, active meditation, homeopathy, and manipulative arts.
His transformation provides principles for your own.

Honored as an International Scientist of 2003 by the IBC, Oxford, England, the 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. America’s Top Physicians 2005, Who’s Who in America; Who’s Who in Medicine and Science; Who’s Who in Business and Engineering all have included him in recognition of his contributions to science and community.
Dr. Jaffe is the recipient of the Merck, Sharp & Dohm Excellence in Research Award, the J.D. Lane Award, and the U.S.P.H.S. 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.
Dr. Jaffe's Works
Dr. Jaffe’s practical contributions to clinical medicine and to healthcare policy focus on functional, predictive tests and procedures designed to improve the precision of both diagnosis and of treatment outcomes; he has authored nearly 100 articles on the subject. 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 hypersensitivity / delayed allergy
Predictive tests of nutritional/metabolic function - Discussed here

247 Bri Seely joins us because she is "motivated by a deeply-held belief that everyone deserves to live a life that inspires them. Because why would you live day in and day out in misery - playing out someone else's idea of a perfect life? My work in transformative self-re-creation reflects the deep remembering that your desires are ultimately inevitable. The fact that they exist inside of your heart means they are possible of existing outside of you.
Through my signature, 6-month training Activate Your Path Within (plus my best-selling book 'Permission to Leap' + 'But, How?' the podcast) I will guide you through the process of bringing your dreams to life from the beginning through every day of the journey ahead."
