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.

Our bodies can be exposed to the dangerous effects of radiation by weapons testing, wireless devices, medical testing, and (God forbid) nuclear attack. The following is a list of things you can do to protect yourself from the damaging effects of radiation.

Potassium Iodide

Approved by the F.D.A. for emergency protection from radioactive fallout and exposure to radioactive materials released from nuclear power plants and used as a first line defense against thyroid cancer. This should only be used in the above emergencies and by U.S. government recommendations.

Miso Soup

Miso soup is made from fermented soybean paste and is a traditional Asian food. Dr. Shinichiro Akizuki was a physician and director of St. Francis Hospital in Nagasaki, Japan during the atomic attack of World War 11. Although, only a few miles away from ground zero, neither he nor his associates suffered the usual damaging effects of radiation. Akizuki believed this was because he and his associates consumed miso on a daily basis. His theory was confirmed in 1972 when it was discovered that miso contains dipicolinic acid which chelates heavy metals such as radio active strontium from the body. Certified organic miso is an amazing nutritional food, and I recommend it to my patients to be used daily for its nutritious and detoxifying properties.


Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant—an active ingredient in the spice turmeric. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and detoxifying properties, as well as its powerful radio protective effects. Because curcumin is poorly absorbed in the body, I use the professional product Theracurmin HP a water soluble and highly bioavailable form of turmeric in my naturopathic practice.


Heavy metals are the underlying cause of many chronic health problems. PectaClear is my favorite product to support the detoxication of heavy metals from the body, including uranium. PectaClear is made from modified citrus pectin and sodium alginate from seaweed. PectaClear can be used both for prevention and removal of heavy metals.


Organic miso, Theracurmin H.P., and PectaClear are available from Deatherage Health Products by calling our office at (417) 683-1300 and speaking to Gloria.
