In his herbal practice, Jeff makes use of an extensive Chinese granular herbal dispensary. By combining individual herbs into classical and modern formulas, Jeff is able to tailor-make and modify formulas for the individual patient. While beneficial for various health concerns, this is particularly useful in the treatment of many gynecological conditions, as well as infertility and history of miscarriage.

He is currently writing a grant application to study the use of acupuncture in the treatment of gastroparesis that may have arisen as a side-effect of chemotherapy treatments in cancer patients.
