Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy and Care Objectives

The body does have the ability to heal, repair and maintain itself.  This ability is called “innate”.  This is an inherent design we are naturally born with.

When disease occurs, regardless of the name of the condition, it is vitally important to try to find out why the disease or symptom developed otherwise how can you possibly know how to treat or correct the condition?  This is the stark difference between a HEALTH expert and a SICKNESS model expert.  Let’s use a flat tire as an example.

Suppose one day you see a tire going flat on your car.  You go to a ‘tire expert’ who puts more air in the tire and that takes care of it but in a couple of days, it is flat again.  The “tire expert” continues to say that you just need more air but now the tire continues to go flat faster and other problems are developing.  Now you need air more and more frequently and maybe you’re to the point you need air every day or several times a day.  Now obviously, a smart person, would want to know why the tire is going flat, fix it and be done with adding air.  The tire isn’t going flat because it lacks air …something else is causing the air to leak out.  You might go to someone who would examine the tire and find that a nail is causing the problem that was leading to the flat tire.   Just adding air did not fix the flat tire problem. This is just like taking drugs to reduce pain, inflammation, high blood pressure, indigestion or reduce other symptoms.  It is not fixing the primary cause of the problem that is causing your symptoms.  A good indication that you are getting worse is if you are needing to take more and more drugs to relieve your symptoms.  You are getting sicker.  In fact, if the drugs were really working, you would not need them but only for a day or 2.  If you keep getting ‘nails in your tires’ or other symptoms, it will be far better to find someone who is really concerned about your health and will find the true cause of your problems.  This way the symptoms will often resolve rather quickly without the need for drugs.

This is what we believe and have seen in many patients over many years.  A healthy body requires several key components to maintain that health:

Optimal nutrients (tools) that it needs to heal and repair and keep all systems running optimally.

Identify and reduce exposures to toxic elements, environmental chemicals, heavy metals and other stressors that can interfere with repair and cause nutrient depletions.

In crisis, injury or prolonged neglect, medical care and drugs might be necessary but this is rare and should only be temporary if a person chooses to get healthy.  Healthy people need no drugs.  Testing is key to finding out the true condition of the body.  Most diseases and conditions will show up in the blood, hair and urine long before symptoms occur.  In fact, often symptoms might not be evident till end stage conditions have developed.  You can be relatively symptom free and have only 20% liver, kidney and pancreatic function left.  We have all had friends that thought they were healthy only to die suddenly or quickly after a serious disease or condition was found that had unknowingly progressed to a critical phase.  All of these conditions and diseases would have been found with proper testing.

Everyone should get properly tested at least once year because the earlier you find a problem, the easier it is to fix and better the results you will have.

We encourage you to get tested to identify those weaknesses in your body so you have a science based game plan to get yourself healthier. Then, plan to get tested once per year to prevent problems that could be creeping up on you.  THIS IS real preventative healthcare.

Happy Clients

Within two weeks, I had already started seeing changes. I had more energy and I had even lost 5 lbs without diet or exercise (I believe this was from toxic bloat)! Gaining confidence, I had started to follow Dr. Bert’s advice to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet. Slowly my cough was subsiding and within four months it was completely gone! For years I have had to live with this debilitating cough that Dr. Bert was able to rid in mere months!
Today I continue to see Dr. Bert for maintenance, immune system strengthening, treating infections, and even weight loss. I am so glad I decided to give herbal medication a try, and I am extremely thankful for Dr. Bert for giving me my life back! For all those that are dealing with an ailment, explore the possibility of herbals! Dr. Bert is amazing; I just wish I found him sooner!


I've only been to two visits, but thus far, the colon pain has improved.  I'm doing his recommended cranberry drink detox and its helping me so very much thus far. As a healer myself, I believe in a healthy living lifestyle, so his care is reinforcing.

I've already recommended him to lots of my patients, family and friends.  I'm also bringing my mother in a week, so she can benefit from his type of treatment.  

I love the care and respect I received from both Dr. Bert and Annie at Advance Health and Wellness Solutions.  They make a great team! 


My first visit with you could not have been more different.  “Would I ever be able to jog again?”  I asked.  “I don’t see why not,” you replied.  You talked to me about nutrition, and introduced me to some wonderful foods such as Greek yogurt and pure cranberry juice, which are now part of my regular diet.

During my visits to your office, you explained each step in my treatment plan, making me feel like we were partners in my healing. When my tight schedule dictated that I bring my children to your office during my treatment sessions, you welcomed them with warmth and made them feel at home.

I write this letter strong of body and filled with gratitude.  I appreciated your holistic approach to healing me, and I have sung your praises to many of my friends and family.  Please feel free to share my letter with any of your prospective patients because I want them to know that I am one very satisfied customer of Advance Health and Wellness Solutions.


“When I first met Dr. Bert just under a year ago, I had lost all hope. I weighed over 200lbs, my blood pressure levels were 169/102 mm Hg and I was truly worried about my health. Physicians told me I needed to lose weight and exercise more and prescribed Hypertension medication. I’ve always been conscious that I have a strong genetic and pre-disposition for Hypertension, Heart Disease and even Diabetes. It wasn’t until I held that prescription in my hand that I knew I had to make a change in my life before it was too late.


Advance Health and Wellness truly saved my life. I was not only able to lose over 60lbs but most importantly I reached optimal blood pressure levels without medications! I learned how the body works and the importance of nutrition, not to mention learning how to cook healthy and delicious meals (my wife was very happy about that!!!). Dr. Bert, and his friendly knowledgeable staff were there to support and help me reach my health and wellness goals. They are fully committed to their patients/clients, and were there to guide me every step of the way. If you are ready to embark on your very own journey.  I truly recommend you give them a call.”
