Deb Martin

Deb Martin’s personal food- healing journey has included regrowing her bones with smoothies, gum regrowth… and relief of her 30-year neck pain (from a whiplash), and retirement of her reading glasses using medicinal-grade chocolate.  She has been working with Dr. David Martin since 2011 to help spread the word about using Food as Medicine. She acquired her Certification in the Conquering Any Disease High-Phytochemical Food Healing System in 2015. 

Deb is also a Reiki Master, and is keenly aware of the energy of food. She understands that all foods and people are not a match. She delights in assisting Dr. David’s efforts by expanding his patient’s knowledge of the phytochemicals in the foods he recommends for them.  And she especially enjoys taking people food shopping, at places like CostCo and Earth Origins, to open them up to the possibilities of all the easy, tasty, HEALTHY and AFFORDABLE ways to eat our foods with the consciousness that they are medicine.

Deb is an ex-Corporate trainer and teacher with a passion for helping people.  Along with Dr. David, she is the instructional designer for many of our food classes, and that role is now also shared with Vickie Gelardi here at Lotus Blossom Clinic.

Note that we are not dietitians or nutritionists who are trained in the western medical model.    We work from a holistic perspective with our Acupuncture Physician.


Vickie Gelardi

Vickie Gelardi has been helping people reverse disease using food for nearly 40 years. In the late 1970’s she founded the Feingold Association of New York and testified before Congress about the health effects of the compounds containing artificial coloring & preservatives in foods.

Her primary focus has been with children on the autism spectrum, including children with learning challenges. From there she has expanded her interests and today, under the supervision of Dr. David Martin, she works with individuals with various diseases, such as inflammatory conditions, diabetes, cardio issues, MS, auto-immune diseases, etc.

In 2014 she received her Certification in the Jeff Primack “Conquering Any Disease” program, thus expanding her work in the medicinal food healing field.

GAIA’S FOOD FARMACY:  We are passionate about the power of food.  Under our acupuncture physician’s supervision, we educate our Community about the medicinal uses of foods, the phytochemicals in mostly plant foods which have been proven to target specific health conditions.  Working together with Dr. David, we target the best plan for each person’s likes & lifestyle… using nature’s powerful phytochemicals to improve the quality of lives.
