Meet The Team
Founder, Publisher & CEO

Over 20 years later, he's now helped over a million people cure various health problems using safe, natural remedies. A former accountant, Joe founded Barton Publishing in 2004 from a tiny basement office with no windows. He lives outside of Sioux Falls, SD with his wife and four growing boys. "Joe's family is passionate about the 'least of these'. Learn more about their care for foster children."
Chief Health Officer & Nutrition Advisor
Dr. Scott left the traditional world of medicine to start his own clinic in Santa Barbara county in California. He graduated from UCLA Medical School, but grew frustrated with "the system" which didn't allow much for alternative remedies - even though he knew they were more effective with less side effects. He is now the director of The Interactive Medicine Center of Santa Barbara, which balances conventional medicine with alternative healing modalities to achieve optimal wellness. He and his wife have 14 children.
Chief Marketing Officer
Marty is tasked with delivering Barton Publishing's message of vibrant health through natural healing remedies to the world through effective marketing campaigns. He and the awesome marketing team plan and execute award winning campaigns online, on the radio and on TV. Chances are, if you've ever read your email or listened to the radio, you've been been introduced to a Barton Publishing advertisement for one of their many life-saving products such as Wholetones or the Diabetes Solution Kit. If so, that's the job of the marketing team to place those messages in front of the people who need them most.
