Course 2 Now Available

For better or worse, we are what we eat, drink, think, and do. We are more a product of our choices than of our genes. In this PIH Academy course, Dr. Russ Jaffe will lead an in-depth exploration of the “human healing response.” The human body has an extraordinary capacity for healing itself, under the right conditions.

Through this 8-lecture series Dr. Jaffe will discuss core physiology first practices to evoke human healing while overcoming obstacles to recovery and, ultimately, achieving life changing health outcomes.

This course consists of 8 interactive lectures by video conference.

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.
