Meet The Team

Joe Barton

Founder, Visionary & CEO

When Joe was a teenager, he remembers telling his parents that someday he'd help tell the world about the "apple remedy" that saved his dad's life. Over 20 years later, he's now helped over a million people overcome various health problems using safe, natural remedies. A former accountant, Joe founded Barton Publishing in 2004 from a tiny basement closet-office with no windows. He and his wife live on an acreage outside of Sioux Falls, SD and have four sons. He enjoys adventure traveling, supporting charitable ministries with an eternal mindset, playing golf and hockey, and is a long-suffering fan of the Minnesota Vikings.

Scott Saunders, MD

Medical & 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 Integrative Medicine Center of Santa Barbara, which balances conventional medicine with alternative healing modalities to achieve optimal wellness. He and his wife have 14 children.
