Story by Denise Yamada
Bertram is my friend and my acupuncturist. I feel good around him — emotionally and physically. He’s just a feel good kind of guy. I first met him about two years ago. He was the very first person I saw when I arrived at the check-in table at a seminar I was attending. . .
“As director and owner of The Wellness Source, I am committed to you receiving the most appropriate and excellent care for your condition. I believe that restoring balance is essential to one’s health. I work on the immediate imbalance and the causative factors, allowing my patients to resolve their condition in a timely manner. My practice consists of helping people achieve and maintain their optimal state of health and wellness. My outside interests include all outdoor activities – everything from long-distance swimming at the cove, working out and sailing, to hiking and camping in the desert and Sierras. My wife and I enjoy traveling and gardening, and even grow some of the herbs we use in our clinic. Because of the experience detailed in this story, I take care of my health everyday. I am always thinking about health and learning about the products and ways to maintain it. This is a benefit for you when you come to see me. I have tried most products, examined what it is to be healthy and have a commitment to both your health and mine.”
