Jeffrey Feinman, BA, VMD, CVH, holds both molecular biology and veterinary degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Jeff’s natural curiosity drove him to study individuality and become a veterinary scientist. In 1980 he was admitted to the dual degree University Scholar program and in 1981 entered the Veterinary Medical Scientist Training program.
His scientific experience includes published papers and research at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, UPenn’s School of Medicine in the Department of Biochemistry, and the PennVet’s s Department of Medical Genetics. After a big shift in his thinking that occurred from a clinical internship in Boston, Dr. Jeff decided to postpone his planned academic career to help individual patients.
Over the next decade of conventional clinical practice he realized that the modern scientific medicine he learned in academia was not the solution for the increases in allergies, degenerative diseases and cancer he was seeing in pets. However, by keeping a skeptical but scientific medicine open mind and experimenting (then observing the results reproducible) he looked “outside the box” of conventional medicine. The holistic context of “Natural Medicines” that work by optimizing “flow” of cellular energy like Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, homeopathy, chiropractic, etc. provided the answer for why pets were getting sicker, and what to do.
Dr. Jeff is currently focused on sharing the many connections he sees between the current conventional veterinary medical paradigm and the potentially more sustainable model of ethnoveterinary medicine (EVN) practiced by indigenous people who live in accord with nature to care for their animals. Dr. Jeff integrates molecular biology with the homeopathic framework to activate and work with natural healing mechanisms using a framework of cellular coherence and information flow throughout pets’ bodies.
