The roots of PERQUE Integrative Health, LLC (PIH) are imbedded in the history and works of the scientist who founded the company and who has remained, with the support of a dedicated staff, at its helm for over 30 years.
Dr. Russell M. Jaffe, CEO and Chairman of PIH worked at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1973 to 1979 where the seeds of his vision began. On leaving NIH Dr. Jaffe began a journey that sought to support the emerging field of Integrative and Regenerative Medicine. His dedication to the application of primary prevention and his commitment to providing superior nutraceuticals and autoimmune testing with clinical evidence of superior efficacy has made him a sought after speaker and leader in his chosen field. In 1984 after, five years of research, Dr. Jaffe invented a process that would eventually lead him to the family of companies he runs today. This innovation’s primary effort was to create a technology platform for measuring and monitoring all delayed allergies in the world’s first single step amplified (ELISA) procedure. When accomplished it was the first performed in a living cell through an advanced culture technique (ACT). Today with over 50,000 cases in the lab database it remains a vibrant part of Dr. Jaffe’s integrated operations.
Expanding to Reston, then to Sterling and now to a custom built headquarters and warehouse in Ashburn, Virginia, Dr. Jaffe is continuously expanding and seeking new ways to improve his existing operations while maintaining his production lab, ELISA/ACT® Biotechnologies, his PERQUE nutraceutical plant, and an R&D facility, RMJ Holdings Rx. Dr. Jaffe and his team of highly trained professionals continually look for 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 turnkey outcome of years of Dr. Jaffe’s scientific research. It brings to market two decades of rethinking safer more effective, novel and proprietary dietary supplements, supplement delivery systems, diagnostic testing, and validation studies. In pilot clinical outcomes studies The Alkaline Way Program, utilizing LRA by ELISA/ACT tests for delayed hypersensitivities along with PERQUE supplementation to remove repair deficits, has been confirmed to achieve improvements in common conditions such as diabetes, fibromyalgia muscle pain, and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFIDS).
Today, the company creates integrated systems that implement assessment protocols and tools that combine information technology with advanced products for enhanced understanding, compliance and monitoring outcomes.
From his humble beginnings in 1984 to today, Dr. Jaffe and his team have steadily moved forward and produced a volume of evidence-based work that has profoundly enhanced functional human nutrition, integrative medicine and proactive preventive healthcare models.
The PIH Pillars
Every part of PIH is backed by an extraordinary level of scientific superiority and efficacy. Exceptional evidence-based science is the foundation for every innovative idea, technology, and theory that PIH uses to create and design its superior products, programs and services.
The motivation that drives PIH is a healthier world. Good health – mental, physical and emotional – is the unsung hero of happiness. It’s what allows us to feel motivated, strong and inspired. At PIH, everything we do is to promote and encourage a healthier world, ensuring better lives for the generations of today and tomorrow. Healthy living isn’t just our philosophy, it’s our way of life!
At PIH, breaking new ground is status quo. We have blazed the trail for almost every path we’ve ever traveled. Identifying the flaws and weaknesses of commonly accepted axioms is our strength and its what’s allowed PIH to define new means, new norms – new ways of thinking. At times we’ve been considered revolutionary and even controversial, but like all pioneers, we bring the fight before the fight is won.
At PIH we know good health – good living – is a long term commitment. To be truly healthy, we must accept and devote ourselves to lifestyle changes, not quick fix pill-popping. And while these changes feel daunting at first, with PIH as a partner for life, daunting changes quickly give way to optimal health and vitality no pill can match. This is why our integrative solutions to health are designed with long term impact in mind so that we move beyond suppressing symptoms and instead, resolve the truer ailments that cause them.
