“About The Natural Path:
If you want to rely less on chemicals for food, medicine, and cleaning and beauty supplies, don’t learn the hard way that some ‘natural’ products may be dangerous for you or your family.
Author Porche Berry dove into a deeper exploration of natural health after discovering her child’s sensitivity to pharmaceuticals and following a close call with an essential oil. However, she had begun watching nutrition shows when she was only ten. Over the years, she has seen pharmaceuticals repeatedly fail family members and friends.
You inherit genes from both parents. That’s genetics. Epigenetics is everything else that can impact how those genes carry out their jobs. Epigenetics can impact your genes for your entire life. Diet, stress level, exposure to toxins—these and other factors all can impact gene expression. The Natural Path helps you take control of many epigenetic factors. The book goes from a broad exploration of the factors affecting your health to simple techniques and recipes for making herbal medicine at home.
The book includes resources for further learning. “Believe it or not you ARE capable of learning how to read the scientific studies and becoming skilled at first-line interventions for the health of your family and yourself,” says Berry. What the book doesn’t include are recommendations on brands.
The remedies covered have been chosen because of their safety profile, says the author. “I wanted to make a resource that catered to the needs of expectant mothers and families with young children.” She had learned that popular remedies can be dangerous, so the book includes a lot of safety information.

When other children were still gaping at cartoons, Porche Berry’s TV diet included programs on nutrition. Seeing pharmaceutical drugs fail repeatedly to treat the long-term health problems of family and friends spurred an early interest in natural medicine. That interest deepened after she became the mother to a child who reacted strongly to pharmaceuticals. During research to help her child, Berry discovered that she had a knack for translating technical topics into lay language. She hopes to help people take command of their own health through The Natural Path and her website, https://www.porcheberry.com/.
