Dr. Rav James Inc. has not increased medical consultation fees since opening doors in December 2018 (in our garage – see the photo above).

In the meantime we have grown from a handful of patients, to a Functional Medicine practice focused on food as medicine, insulin resistance, metabolic health, auto-immune diseases, gut health, genetics, integrative oncology, and holistic approaches to mental health.

These are some of the most misunderstood areas of our health and, when we deepen our understanding of them, we have a real opportunity to extend our healthspan (the number of years we live free of chronic disease) and our happiness. But they’re complex and they need thorough investigation, a personalised approach, patience, and the belief that – in the end – we are our own best healers.

I would like to thank all of our patients for the continued support of my root causes, Functional Medicine approach to health and healing. I am so grateful for your belief in my practice and in the greater vision of Hanya House and its team.

The new pricing, effective May 1st 2022, can be found below.

Please note that Dr. Rav James Inc. is now legally required to charge VAT and all prices below exclude VAT.

Stay good,
Dr. Rav James Inc
