Today, I’m so excited to have Dr. Ann-Marie Barter on the show to chat about chiropractic care, functional medicine, and gut health.  We discuss: – Dr. Barter’s background and why she’s so passionate about functional medicine – What chiropractic is and some ailments that it can help address – The educational process of becoming a chiropractor – Common traits among her clients – What every woman should know about functional medicine – Leaky gut – Changes every woman can make right now for their health and so much more!  Here’s a little bit about Dr. Barter: Dr. Barter has always had a mind for high level problem solving. In her early 20’s she was introduced to chiropractic, whereas she had been very skeptical until it changed her life. The treatment was like magic – she felt new and light, like a better version of herself. She immersed herself in school, learning not only the art and science of chiropractic modalities, but also functional blood chemistry analysis, nutrition, applied kinesiology and natural remedies. She now specializes in difficult functional medicine cases, helping people with issues concerning their thyroid, blood sugar, gut health and hormone dysfunction as well as other metabolic conditions. Dr. Barter went to Chiropractic school at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, but when she found out her mother was diagnosed with late stage cancer they moved to Colorado to fulfill her mother’s dream and she opened her first practice.  These days Dr. Barter can be found dancing, skiing, running, practicing yoga, biking, hiking, practicing barre or walking her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Ritz.

As many of my fellow trainers know, sometimes we have to refer out to other health and wellness practitioners to get more in-depth care when issues arise beyond our scope of practice. Locally, I’ve been fortunate to have chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, etc. to refer out to when needed. I am joined today by Colorado based chiropractor, Dr. Ann Barter to talk about this type of collaborative care. She recognized in her own field where different approaches could be complementary and effective. Using professionals like I mentioned above as well as medical doctors to work in unison to help patients thrive, Dr. Barter has been extremely successful in understanding how several parties can work together for the same end goal of the patient.

This isn’t the latest diet trend—this is cold, hard science! In this podcast, I have a chat with Dr. Ann-Marie Barter, Chiropractor and Functional Medicine Practitioner, all about the role of neurotransmitters in our relationship to food and weight loss. I can’t wait to share with you Dr. Barter’s discoveries on the cutting edge of holistic healthcare! read more
