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.


How to Overcome Back Pain

      Americans spend over fifty billion dollars a year on various drugs and treatment for back pain. Our naturopathic program is successful for most people who suffer from back pain because it addresses the cause of most back pain and combines such with the use of proven gentle natural therapies to assist the body’s God-given healing powers.  It consists of the following.

        1. Weight loss. Excess weight causes pressure on the spine and compression of the disks and nerves.  Bringing your weight into optimal range can not only help you reverse back pain, but a host of other chronic illnesses as well.

        2. Exercise. Core muscles in your abs and back are critical in supporting your spine.  These muscles often do not get an adequate work-out during the course of a normal day.  Simple core exercises, such as lying hip bridges, squats, toe stands, and wall push-ups can strengthen your core muscles, thus dramatically reducing back pain.

        3. Food sensitivities.  Food sensitivities are a huge contributing factor for back pain as they are for all chronic illnesses and other types of joint pain, and are a major source of inflammation. Kinesiology by a credibly trained naturopathic doctor with clinical experience is the most accurate way to assess a patient’s food sensitivities.

        4. Anti-inflammatory herbs. We recommend  high quality herbal anti-inflammatory supplement(s) for all of our patients who suffer from back pain, as well as other painful conditions.

        5. Inversion. Inversion therapy using a Teeter inversion table is one of the most valuable therapies for back pain we have found. Inversion therapy performed properly, and not contraindicated, on a daily basis usually brings incredible improvement of back pain within thirty days. Inversion therapy works by gently decompressing the spine, thus reversing nerve compression and correcting spinal misalignment.
