Deatherage Health Products

Deatherage Health Products was founded in 1986 by Dr. Christopher and Gloria Deatherage to provide the finest natural health products and natural foods to their patients and the public.

Dr. Deatherage realized that the quality of most nutritional herbal supplemnts sold to the public through health food stores and mail-order companies were low quality, only marginally effective, and lacked clinical data to support their use. Deatherage Health Products carries nutritional and herbal supplements that are manufactured to the highest quality standards and have solid clinical data to support their effectiveness.


The Marines Are Looking for a Few Good Men
I am Looking for a Few Good Patients

I have always loved the Marine corp. My father was a marine corp fighter pilot and I remember learning to sing the Marine Hymn when I was barely old enough to walk. I learned very young why the Marines are looking for  just a few good men and the arguments why they are the most elite service. Although I respect all veterans, I still have a special love for the Marine corp.
As a naturopathic doctor with thirty-six years of experience, I now model my practice after the Marine corp’s example of looking for a few good men. In our practice we are looking for a few good patients.

I was told by a chiropractor years ago that if I really wanted to make the most money I should focus on helping a lot of people a little rather than a few people a lot. I disagree and do not wish to practice this way or function as a glorified babysitter.

I run a select practice and am interested in finding patients who want to work with an experienced, dedicated naturopathic doctor and who wish to take personal responsibility for their health and wellness, thus making radical lifestyle reforms and choosing naturopathic medicine as their first choice of treatment in acute and chronic disease. These are the patients who really experience the miracles of naturopathic medicine and dramatically increase their quality and most of the time the quantity of life as well.
