PERQUE Integrative Health (PIH) launched PIH Academy, led by Russell Jaffe with the goal of educating healthcare practitioners on Physiology First as the basis of functional medicine in practice. The Physiology First practice philosophy focuses on the processes and functions that create, sustain, and optimize life. It is an approach that looks at how the things we eat, drink, think and do impact us physiologically – either supporting or detracting from optimal function. Physiology First (before pharmacology) is at the core of proactive prevention and the practice of functional medicine.
