The natural path by Porche Berry

The natural path

ISBN: 9781393886808

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.

The Oil Apothecary

​ISBN: 9781393486558

The oil apothecary was born out of a need to organize and convey important safety information about essential oils.
A personal experience with safety issues and a child created a learning frenzy that had many people messaging with questions.
Answering individual questions takes forever while handing them a book means they can become knowledgable on the topic in their own right.
Careful research using a government database, studies, and textbooks such as Robert Tisserand’s book “Essential Oil Safety” was undertaken to ensure the most accurate and complete information would be given.
The book has been written so that even a complete novice could understand it while the unique Quick Reference Data Sheet would make it useful even for trained aromatherapists.
With 128 individual oil profiles, this is the most complete book on the topic for laypeople.

No specific brands are promoted. Instead, the reader is shown how to navigate the marketplace by learning what to look for in an oil and a company.
