The Tenfold Path is a website by Dan Brubaker Horst (DBH). It is a resource for becoming a better human being. I hope it is of some use to you.

I am not a doctor or a registered dietitian nor do I hold any license or credential to offer medical advice or provide medical care. The information on this website is for informational purposes only. Please consult a professional before changing your diet or exercise routine.

I have done my best to compile information that is vetted and valid1. However, as with all everything derived from the scientific process, new research and analysis is continually refining, and sometimes challenging, previously held assumptions and beliefs. It takes a while for new information to trickle down to me.

Moreover, I capture the things that work for me. Individual differences in epigenetic expression, gut microbiome, environmental factors, and a host of other variables mean that what works for me, or even what works for most people on average, may not work for you. You must figure out what produces the best results for you.

Where did the name “Tenfold Path” come from?

The Eightfold Path is a foundational summary of Buddhist principles. In contemporary warrior culture, “the path” is committing oneself to pursue the ten aspirations in The Code2. Hence, the “tenfold path” is a nod to both these schools of thought3.

  1. I have neither the expertise nor the analytical tools tool to perform original scientific research or critically review primary source material myself. I rely on experts to do the heavy lifting and do my best to cite their work in The Codex

  2. And, you know, the ten commandments

  3. There is a concept of the Tenfold Path in some Buddhist cannons. I didn’t find out about that until after I chose the name.
