About Us

In 2020, Wellness Institute International Inc. (WII), celebrated a milestone: our 30th year in the challenging but exhilarating world of natural medicine! The Institute was founded in Silicon Valley, California, amidst the intellectual brilliance, thick-willed determination, and boundless energy for discovery ushered in by the dawn of the computer age. We carried this spirit of innovation to the Philippines, where we opened our first clinic, training, and research center in 2000.

WII also provides a leading voice to help shape integrated health care systems. Our executive staff, researchers, and doctors have more than forty five years of direct and extensive experience in natural and integrative medicine, professional development, education, and research to foster just, sustainable, and healthy generations to come. 

This year, 2023, Wellness Institute International moved to its new headquarter, Bali, INDONESIA. WII is a health and wellness clinic, research, and teaching center registered in California, USA; Manila, PHILIPPINES; Lourdes, FRANCE, and Bali, INDONESIA. With more than 5,000 patient visits annually, WII is a true chronic disease prevention, management and control landmark in Asia.

Reaching out to more people in the community and the world continues to be our main goal. Our untiring commitment to help people live better and live longer prompted the move of the Institute’s main activities and programs in Bali, Indonesia.

As one of world’s best and the first integrative and Functional cancer facility in Asia, Dr Dale HASH introduced Lifesytle Medicine in 2005. WII broadens our service to the local and international communities by addressing the underlying causes of diseases, patient-centered whole person management, control of chronic diseases, Integrative and Functional healthcare approaches and fostering a patient and practitioner therapeutic partnership for more healthy, productive individuals and improved quality of life.

Hallmarks of the WII Approach

to Health & Wellness Care

Patient-Centered Care

We endeavor to comprehensively grasp the underlying factors, preventive measures, and effective treatments pertaining to intricate and chronic diseases.

An Integrative, Science-Based Approach

Our practitioners embrace a holistic wellness philosophy, employing an ‘upstream’ approach that delves into the intricate interplay of patient history, physiology, and lifestyle. 

This method is instrumental in pinpointing potential factors contributing to the onset of diseases.

Pioneering the Best in Health & Wellness Care

WII seamlessly combines conventional Western medical methodologies with integrative or functional medicine, placing a notable emphasis on preventive measures.

Confronting the Crisis

of Chronic Diseases

The WII Charter – “We are dedicated to nurturing a culture of well-being, resilience, and vibrant living that extends to everyone we serve.” The WII Charter is underpinned by three core objectives.

Cutting-Edge Therapies

Firstly, we aim to offer cutting-edge, natural, and well-established therapies to combat the prevailing epidemic of chronic diseases.

More Effective Systems

Secondly, our focus is on modernizing and integrating the outdated acute-care models, with more effective systems for the prevention, management, and control of chronic illnesses.

Knowledge Transfer

Lastly, as a distinguished global training hub for emerging natural sciences theory and medical practice, we impart knowledge and train the next wave of medical professionals (doctors and nurses).
