Ann Barter

Dr. Ann Marie Barter is a Functional Medicine expert, chiropractor, and podcast host practicing in Denver and Longmont, Colorado.

Dr. Barter graduated from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, an accredited 4 year Doctoral program that is considered a leader in evidence-based medicine, and the first Chiropractic school to be awarded a federal research grant.

Her expertise in Functional Medicine expanded from basic metabolic function starting in the gut to working with patients with thyroid issues and hormonal imbalances to those with serious symptoms from toxic exposures such as heavy metals and various mold species. As well, she sees many patients suffering emotional disturbances such as anxiety and depression stemming from neurotransmitter imbalances. She is a firm believer in the “test-don’t-guess” method of diagnosis and uses many gold-standard diagnostic methodologies such as the GI Map, OAT and DUTCH tests to help get to the root cause of her patients’ symptoms.

Not satisfied with helping just those in her immediate area, in 2019 Dr. Barter launched her first podcast. She regularly chats with experts from a variety of natural health specialties about a range of topics spanning all things functional medicine. In 2020 she added a YouTube channel to her repertoire to complement her podcast. In 2021 she changed the name of her show from the Fearless Health Podcast to the Gut Health Reset. She still discusses functional and alternative medicine with different experts, she just now focuses the show on the gut, since that is where our health (and its inverse) begins, after all.

Dr. Barter has enjoyed being a featured guest on many of her colleague’s shows and podcasts as well as being a panelist on the annual Quit Sugar Summit. She is a Tier 1 Certified Practitioner with the Gluten Free Society as well. She keeps current with the latest in physical adjustments as well and 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 aid in making recommendations for avoiding future running-related injuries.

In 2020 Dr. Barter launched her own line of therapeutic-grade nutraceuticals called The Barter Protocol. With it she aims to provide safe, reliable, and effective non-pharmaceutical options for common physical issues as well as specific concerns such as IBS, leaky gut, and SIBO. In addition, her nutritional supplement line includes neurotransmitter support and natural detoxification.

Dr. Ann Marie Barter is a graduate of the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, an accredited 4-year Doctoral program that is considered a leader in evidence-based medicine, and the first Chiropractic school to be awarded a federal research grant.

When she’s not at work or recording her show she is an avid skier and mountain biker, so she can regularly be found playing in the foothills and mountains near her home in Golden, Colorado.

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 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.

Biography

  • A Little More…

Dr. Barter uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Barter takes a “whole person” approach to chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.

Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, extremities, biochemical disturbances, and stress and Dr. Barter will be able to determine the root of the problem and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient’s individual needs.

Dr. Ann-Marie Barter is passionate about helping you and your family. She has a broad range of diagnostic skills and enjoys working with women and men of all ages including pregnant women, kids, and geriatric patients. She is dedicated to appropriately assessing your condition, building an individualized treatment program, and optimizing your health.

She’s awesome!

So much more than just a chiropractor, Dr. Ann is nothing short of a miracle worker. Part healer, part therapist, she has a way of getting to the core of what ails you, whether physical, mental or a bit of both. She’s helped get me on the path to finally being able to lose weight and feeling better than I ever have.

Helped me a lot!

What a great healer. I have been getting care from chiropractors, doctors, acupuncturists and reflexologists for years. She is the best healer I have met in 61 years. Thank you Ann!

Steve A.




Highly recommend!

Dr. Ann helped fix the plantar fasciitis in my feet. I had a lot of pain in the arch of my feet. I saw an orthopedic surgeon and he gave me some ideas but I was looking for more. Dr Ann presented at a seminar at work and talked about the very issue I was experiencing. I made an appointment and went to see what she could do. Through a combination of chiropractic adjustments and quality supplements my feet now feel much better and I’m back to normal activities that I had to stop. I highly recommend her to anyone that is having health issues. I’m confident she can help.

I love this place!

Dr. Barter and Dr. Christian are amazing practitioners. I am always consulting with them before making my next health move. They have helped me to find all the right supplements I need to support my body and have helped me to improve my health immensely. Dr. Christian’s adjustments always get me back into good form and help balance out my emotions. I strongly recommend this place.
