What do you call alternative medicine that works to heal the body?  MEDICINE!

This probably best describes Dr. Ann Marie Barters philosophy and outlook on how to sustain optimal health and wellness and enjoy life to the fullest.  Her mission is to get you out of pain and back into living … actively and happily!  She does this using methods that are often considered alternative yet at the end of the day they work, as her clients will attest to.

With a background based in chiropractic medicine, applied kinesiology and Functional Blood Chemistry, Dr. Barter has taken her practice to an even greater level of providing the ultimate in healing the body by including diet counseling, whole food supplementation, herbal therapy, wellness and lifestyle coaching.

If you have ever felt like life with pain was just something you were going to have to get used to and live with then today’s episode is going to be huge eye-opener and offer you a massive shift in perspective. 

Join the conversation with Coach Tonya and Dr. Barter as they talk all things holistic, healing and what is ultimately really great medicine.
