Alexis Appleberry, FDN, is a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist whose services are accessible throughout the country online.

I’ve always been inquisitive and never accepted things at face value. Which I’m sure was exhausting for my teachers and parents! I had to research until I was satisfied that I had the correct answer. My father was a detective and his tenacity to find answers was a big influence on me which is why I take an investigative approach when working with my clients. I gather clues from multiple angles and sources to determine what is blocking your body’s natural ability to heal.

My own healing journey began as a very young overweight single mom desiring to lose weight, resolve my nasty headaches and digestive issues. That led me to take a strong interest in human physiology because conventional medicine had no answers for me.

Juggling a toddler and working two jobs made getting a college education very difficult but I was tenacious and passionate about physiology. I finally put myself through school, lost the weight, started working as a personal trainer and started my own business. After moving to Minnesota, I went back to school and graduated as Valedictorian at the MRI School of Minnesota. As my determination and curiosity grew to find answers to root causes I discovered Functional Medicine and had the good fortune to work for the most regarded functional medicine education company in the industry.

During this time I had started getting debilitating migraines. I couldn’t concentrate or focus to absorb this amazing information I was being taught. The compassion and knowledge of the practitioners there helped me understand how gluten was affecting my brain. I would have never finished my training otherwise. Gluten’s effect on the brain is often overlooked and can be devastating.

I have almost 10 years of functional medicine education. Most of my functional medicine training was through Dr. Datis Kharrazian. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from a published Harvard Research Fellow. He has developed programs for some of the most distinguished functional medicine institutions including the IFM. His clinical models are used by several academic institutions and thousands of healthcare professionals throughout the world. Dr. Kharrazian is the Associate Clinical Professor at Loma Linda University and is widely regarded by his peers as the most brilliant mind in natural medicine today.  His training allowed me to be knowledgeable enough to do one-on-one functional medicine training for other physicians in the Austin the Austin and San Antonio areas for 4 years. I most recently have earned my certification as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner to broaden my knowledge and add to my clinical skills.

I find nothing more rewarding than changing lives and having a personal connection with my clients. I take each case personally and sometimes spend hours researching for a difficult case until I’m satisfied with the answer.

I now live in the Texas Hill Country and in my spare time I enjoy kayaking, hiking, fishing, weight training, yoga, painting, reading books on psychology, mindset and always staying up to date on the latest advancements in natural medicine. I love coffee (yes, it’s ok!) and I have 3 grown boys that constantly keep me on my toes! I look forward to working with you and guiding you on your journey to better health!

The hospital industry has been suffering small, yet progressing changes due to the implementation of Obamacare. Some up and coming trends are healthcare consolidation for independent healthcare centers that see a cut in unforeseen payouts. High deductible health plans are also expected to transpire along with a growth of independent practices. Surgery based services are still considered a good business to doctors.

Dr. Barter underwent rigorous clinical training with some of the finest chiropractors. Dr. Barter has also undergone advanced training in Applied Kinesiology, completing over 400 extra classroom hours and is certified to practice Applied Kinesiology. She has also studied Functional Blood Chemistry under Dr. Kharrazian.

She has taken an interest in optimizing health by incorporating diet counseling, whole food supplementation, herbal therapy, wellness and lifestyle coaching, scar tissue work, deep tissue massage, and exercise programs.

Dr. Barter has completed the 18 hours required for certification by The Running Clinic for: New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries. This training course has been delivered more than a hundred times, on 5 continents! It has been developed using the most recent scientific evidence, it questions several current unjustified practices. The techniques learned in this class help Dr. Barter better assess her patients and aids in making recommendations for avoiding future running-related injuries.

Medicine is a second career and passion for Dr. Barter. Initially, she worked at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, Texas negotiating major systems for their fighter jet program. She excelled at difficult negotiations and was able to hit challenging company goals.

Dr. Barter is passionate about chiropractic, helping people get out of pain and reach their maximum potential. Chiropractic changed Dr. Barter’s life. When she was in initially introduced to chiropractic (in her early 20’s) she was skeptical. The more educated she became in the art of chiropractic, the more interested and intrigued she became, until she finally asked for an adjustment from a family friend who practices chiropractic. The treatment was like magic. He not only adjusted her spine but also her feet, hips, knees, wrists, and elbows. She felt new and light, like a better version of herself. He also took extra time to put her on a specific dietary protocol and nutritional regimen, from which she realized major positive changes. She excelled academically, experienced less gastrointestinal upset, reduced brain-fog, lost weight, and started to enjoy activities like hiking, because her foot mechanics had been changed.

Dr. Barter has been active in athletics her entire life. For 17 years Dr. Barter was a competitive dancer. These days she can be found dancing, skiing, running, performing yoga, biking, hiking, lifting weights or walking her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Ritz. She knows what it takes to be an athlete and she finds great satisfaction in helping athletes reach their maximum potential.
