UNLOCK YOUR CAPACITY FOR HEALING
When toxins, infections, allergies, and other stressors are present in the body, it's natural biorhythms are often disrupted. The result is often fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, etc. However, when the body is brought back into balance, it has the resources it needs to restore itself back to health.
The practice of Biological Medicine, borrowing from the laws of Physics and Quantum Mechanics, and from ancient techniques such as Chinese Medicine, allows the body and mind to be addressed in a unique way. Instead of addressing pathology through biochemistry, the focus becomes balancing the interconnected energy system of the body. This paradigm shift provides extraordinary tools to improve one's health and well-being. I utilize the most advanced, cutting-edge tools to assess the root cause of your health challenges and to help you reach your full potential.
A NEW APPROACH
As a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with over 15 years of experience in both conventional and alternative medicine, I have had the opportunity to understand some of the challenges and opportunities of those struggling with chronic illness. Often patients have difficulty navigating the medical system.
They are often referred to various specialties by their Primary Care Physician, where the focus is treating the symptom, not the cause. Often, patients will seek out alternative approaches when dealing with chronic illness. While alternative medicine may seem like a welcome relief from the conventional approach, patients may encounter long wait-lists, expensive office visits, and lab tests, as well as extensive protocols/treatments. This can cause financial hardship as they search for solutions to their health challenges.

I was glad to discover Dr. Van Lear’s practice when I did. He is a kind and experienced doctor. I think he’s done a great job in pinpointing what my main issues are and so I’m no longer on a healthcare merry-go-round. I finally have answers/relief. I’ve seen much progress with my health in the short time I’ve been in his care which I can’t express enough gratitude for. I’m on the road to recovery and feel like I’m on the right track with his help.
Lee G., Atlanta, GA (Chronic Gut Issues)
I can’t explain exactly how it all happened but he can! My three young children had strep so often in the past few years, it was awful. Constantly out of school and on antibiotics, it dominated our life. I was terrified of PANDAS and ruining their systems with antibiotics. Just as we were about to get one of my daughters’ tonsils out, we started with Martin on a rec from a friend whose daughter had chronic strep for years but was now totally clear for months. Sure enough, we haven’t had any strep for 14 mos since day one with Martin. It is unconventional medicine but the proof is in the absence of strep tests, pukey kids, missed days from school and work. My pediatrician and I just shrug our shoulders at each other when we talk about it – again, I don’t get it why it’s all worked so well but it has! Martin is very easy and fun to work with. We are all grateful to have found him!
Bo B. ATlanta, GA (Chroinc Strep/PANDAS)
I have been struggling with SIBO, leaky gut, and other issues for over 3 years now. I am a young mom and my health kept deteriorating every year. I saw multiple providers and they never fully listened to me and many just thought they knew what was wrong and proceeded with out actually investigating. It made me research things myself. I am so thankful I found Martin he is very passionate about helping people and is willing to listen and investigate. I also have alpha gal syndrome which makes me allergic to all mammal meat and byproducts. He is the first person that is willing to work around this difficult obstacle in my healing process. It’s a process but for the first time I have hope that my health will be restored. Martin is a God send!!
Nina S., TN (Chronic SIBO, Leaky Gut)
I have been working with Martin for several months to help with autoimmune issues and low energy. My sleep was the first thing to improve, then my gut health improved and my digestion improved. I am 66 years old and have been struggling with these issues for most of my life. Today, I hiked 5 miles without getting tired and my husband couldn’t believe my increase in energy and stamina! I can’t tell you how great it is to have the energy and motivation to do the things I want to do. Martin is a true healer! He tries everything and doesn’t stop till he gets answers and healing! His compassion and determination are unmatched! I’ve been on this journey for 8 years with slow improvement but it wasn’t till I worked with Martin that I got true healing! Thank you, Martin!
Gail B., Atlanta, GA-Chronic Fatigue/Autoimmunity
I am a 66-year-old male with Parkinson’s. I was diagnosed three years ago. I’ve bounced around from neurologist to neurologist because basically all they want to do is treat symptoms, and ease me into Parkinson’s. In other words, traditional medicine has failed me.
I know that the label ‘Parkinson’s’ is an umbrella term for a multitude of conditions. In other words, there is no ‘one size fits all’ cure.
That is where Martin comes in. He has literally been a godsend. Martin has a wide range of modalities and protocols at his disposal. His intellect, depth of knowledge, and desire to help, make him indispensable. If you have Parkinson’s, you need to be under Martin‘s treatment and care.
Mike B. (Parkionson's) Atlanta, GA
I have been seeing Martin for several months now. I had a girlfriend who had Lyme and other sensitivities who recommended Martin. She has always spoken very highly about him. I knew her for many years and watched her go through a lot of health issues. Martin brought her healing (when no one else did)and she’s been thriving ever since. So naturally, when I started having health issues and ALL other doctors failed in helping me heal for years before, I reached out to him. He’s discovered the root of my illnesses, which are CIRS (from biotoxin/mold illness), Lyme, coinfections and stealth infections. We are working on everything. I finally feel like I have someone who cares about my well-being and helping me regain my life back! He is extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in Western medicine as well as functional, integrative and ART. He’s compassionate, kind and he listens when I speak. He’s always working on my behalf. He’s very good with patient communication and sharing info/knowledge with me too. I am finally on a healing path and I know it will be his guidance that will ultimately heal my mind and body! I highly recommend him!
Amanda M. (Mold and Lyme Illness), Lawerenceville, GA
Martin has literally changed my family’s life! We exhausted western medicine solutions to a chronic strep issue and only found health through Martin’s treatment and advice. I cannot say enough good things about him or his practice!
Emily S., Atlanta, GA
Martin has changed my life – both physically and mentally. He is so gentle and kind and able to really go deep into the root cause of any issues I am experiencing (physically/mentality). He spends so much time working with me to really dig deep on all levels. He is a blessing in my life – and would never be comfortable without having him as my primary practitioner and a resource to consult with and share my deepest core issues. His main passion is to help people and it comes through in every aspect of his actions, words, and protocols.
Cynthia V., Atlanta, GA. (Chronic Health Issues)
Currently experiencing some relief from chronic Lyme Disease, Autoimmune and sleep issues with the help of ART and biomagnetic pair therapy. Looking forward to continuing this progression!

I’ve been working with Martin for about a year and I have my life back now that we’ve gotten my thyroid supplements dialed in! Feeling amazing!
Monica R.., Altanta, GA (Thyroid)
Martin has really helped me on my journey so far. I was restricted to 9 foods due to food intolerances. I was having multiple issues including toxicity being one of them and muscle testing really helped select the right supplements for me. As I’m Intolerant to most supplements I was told to start on a low dose and gradually increase. Now I’m able to add back more foods in my diet. Out of the supplements that worked for me 2 of them really helped my toxicity and intestinal permeability issues. I got the perfect digestive enzyme which my body could tolerate. I’m really happy and hopeful as my symptoms are so much more better. Allopathy alone couldn’t ever fix some issues for me and infact overuse of antibiotics caused my gut dysbiosis. I also randomly tried many supplements available on certain websites before I met Martin, but they didn’t really help. The Gene test was an eye opener. Martin was able to understand my root issue and I’m feeling so much more better. He is also connected to other awesome holistic specialist practitioners and did refer me once for a certain procedure. I feel I’ve come a long way after just 3 visits with Martin. He is also knowledgeable about allopathy and can prescribe tests/meds when necessary. He is like a general physician as well as a naturopath for me. He is very patient and understanding as a person and I highly recommend him. I’m impressed by his holistic knowledge of chronic diseases and their underlying reason. His clinic is well equipped and clean.
Josepeh S., Atlanta, GA (Food sensitivities and Dysbiosis)
Martin Van Lear saved my life. Before meeting Martin, I had lived with chronic severe pain and fatigue for over 25 years. I had seen countless specialists who would run tests, tell me I was fine, and then suggest it was all in my head. Not a single person could identify what was wrong with me. I suffered daily with so many varying and seemingly unrelated symptoms that I got to the point that if this is what living was going to be like, I didn’t want to live anymore.
In 2017, during the worst and most painful episode in my life, I could no longer get out of bed, and as a result, I lost my job. My chiropractor and dear friend, Marion Maloof, suggested I see Martin. During a call where I outlined my symptoms, he listened intently, asked some questions, and said to me, “I think it might be Lyme Disease. Come in and let’s find out.” After a series of tests, it was determined that I did in fact have chronic complex Lyme, but also ccEBV, Bartonella, my adrenals were shot, my body wasn’t absorbing any nutrients, and I had a battery of other issues. I sat there and cried, not from the results, but that he named it, that i was not crazy, that this was real, and that he could help – it was the first time I had ever felt heard by a medical professional about my lived reality of disabling, chronic illness. My life changed forever that day.
Over the course of the following year, I began a series of protocols, listening to his advise, taking his direction, and adjusting routine by changing my diet and adding in other healing modalities, and slowly slowly I began to heal. I still see Martin from time to time when I have flare ups, but my symptoms are mostly kept at bay in his care, and I have a quality of life and health that I never imagined possible.
Martin cares deeply about the emotional, mental, and physical health of his patients. He listens and does everything he can to help find answers and solve the causal effects of chronic illness. He has my trust and respect and I will forever be grateful to him for giving me my life back.
Thank you, Martin. You are an angel on this Earth. Truly.
Vanessa C. Atlanta, GA (Chronic Lyme)
Finding Martin was literally an answer to prayer. I have struggled with significant digestive issues for 20 years and he was able to help me get to a diagnosis of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Martin is extra caring and intuitive and thankfully persistent! He is constantly learning from the most cutting edge experts and studies to help resolve my issues. After being so ill that I could barely function in daily life, I am finally improving!! I am on a journey to healing now, rather than just living with labels of celiac or food intolerances without a plan for how to get better. Martin helps the body do what it is so good at – healing!
Holly S., (Chronic SIBO) Kentucky
When I came to Martin, I was incredibly sick. I’d been to numerous doctors, specialists, etc and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. After an hour in Martin’s chair and many questions later he turns to me and says “I think you have mold illness, and mold allergies, and I think your house is making you really sick.” Hearing this news put everything into perspective, it was like watching the puzzle pieces fit together in my story of being chronically ill for the last 3 years. Since moving out of my house 3 weeks ago and starting to take supplements under Martin’s care, I am slowly but surely starting to feel better. I feel like I’m gaining my life back! I’m incredibly grateful to Martin for being a kind, thoughtful, empathetic person who has really listened to me and taken me seriously. He has been the sole reason as to why I’ve been able to feel better and I can’t express my gratitude enough. I would highly suggest seeing Martin if you need answers and can’t seem to find them. He has helped me so much!
Abigal C., Charleston, SC (Mold Illness)
Dr. Martin really cares about leading his patients to vibrant health! He is making a difference and is so kind and understanding. We highly recommend Tree of Light Health in the Atlanta area!
Stanley S., Atlanta, GA (Thyroid)
I’m thankful I found Martin! I’ve been to a number of holistic health practitioners for years. Spent a ton of money but honestly couldn’t get to that optimal health. It didn’t take that long for Martin to target the exact areas for me. He didn’t take the approach of well let’s just try this for a while and see how you do. His understanding of the synergistic working of my body, physically & cellular level is beyond my comprehension. I just needed someone who could tell me rather than me doing all the work. I come every 8 weeks for now & I find so much improvement I get quite excited. So if you honestly need your health to go forward with leaps & bounds then go visit Martin & trust the process.
His communication is also amazing by sending emails of exactly what was discussed & accomplished & listing any supplements needed. You don’t have to remind him of any discussion from the previous visits. He reminds me! Who does that? No one I’ve ever been to!
I’m so grateful for him!
Donna N., Atlanta, GA (Heath Optimization)
Truly I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Tree of Light Health Center. Martin has completely transformed my whole life. I finally have energy again, I sleep so much better, I have started exercising again, my diet is full of gut-healthy nutrients, and we have been working on my thyroid/adrenals which has tremendously transfigured my day to day life! Martin treats every single one of his patients with such wonderful care, and makes sure to always keep in touch with the progress of your improvement. Not only that, but he also provides constant uplifting messages to provide hope for healing just when you are starting to think there is none. I sincerely wish everyone would go to the Tree of Light to alter their life on every level… holistically, functionally, and energetically. I have learned so much about my body and my health since finding Martin and I simply cannot express my sincerest gratitude for his help and care!
Danielle B., Atlanta, GA (Thyroid/Chronic Fatigue)
I cannot state enough how grateful I am for meeting Mr. Van Lear at Tree of Light Health. My visit consisted of a very thorough exam that addressed my EMF Sensitivities. After having headaches for three months, with the correct direction, I am now headache free. I have appreciated our follow up communication just as much. I have never experienced such genuine concern for my wellbeing from a healthcare provider. I can go on an on about specifics, (I appreciate detail) but I will close by saying, he is a special individual that radiates a true desire to help others.
Jennifer Y., Atlanta, GA (Headaches and EMF Sensitiivity)
I’ve been blessed to work with many excellent health practitioners across the country, in my journey with being highly sensitive and having several different complex issues to address – including mold exposure. Martin is definitely one of the best I have worked with. He is incredibly intelligent, intuitive, generous, thoughtful, flexible and amazingly patient. He also has an incredible depth of knowledge and resources in both the Western medical field as well as alternative health fields that he draws from which is a must when dealing with very complicated cases such as mine. I would highly recommend him to everyone
Hillary D., Colorado (Multiple Chronic Conditiions)
Thank you Martin for all of your help!! This man is one of the kindest and hardest working individuals you will meet. He helped me to balance my vitamin and minerals deficiencies as well as clear my skin from acne. Martin also helped me with my emotional well-being by helping me to release emotions that were blocking me and keeping me stuck in the past. If you are looking for a provider that won’t stop until he has solved your problem then you are looking in the right place.
