Kevin Trudeau is fast becoming the nation’s foremost consumer advocate and exposer of corporate and government corruption. Claiming to be a secret covert operative for almost twenty years, Kevin knows from personal experience how big business and government try to debunk individuals who promote products that could hurt the profits of giant multinational corporations. Trudeau spends most of his time spearheading www.naturalcures.com, the website that promotes education about natural healing therapies; and www.thewhistleblower.com, the website that exposes corporate and government abuse and corruption. He is actively pursuing lawsuits against the individuals, corporations and government agencies that take advantage of the average consumer. He is also dedicated to the formation of various foundations to pursue these goals, and intends to donate much of his fortune for that purpose.

The book is everything but not exactly what you would expect to get judging by the title. Kevin Trudeau constantly refers to his website where one supposedly would get full explanation for various topics. The only problem is that no one can get any explanation free of charge. Once you land at the website, you will realize that there is almost nothing that you could learn unless you come up with some kind of payment! Otherwise the book has some valid and valuable information. However, there are many other books at the market that discuss natural cures, stress reduction methods, proper nutrition, proper breathing techniques, yoga, etc. They are often not only much more informative but at the same time also cheaper. Just look around Amazon and you will find them. I find the best alternative to "Natural Cures" are books by Mikhail T. such as Cure the Incurable, or a longevity book titled Can we live... They are absolutely noncommercial and full of useful info. In addition, their website is not only free of any charges but also provides some free ebooks on other health issues.
And Kevin Trudeau doesn't want you to know about them, either... I bought this book and couldn't believe that this was the book advertized on television. First of all, there is not a single reference to a single natural cure in the entire book. I bought this book because of references made on the infomercial, and to my chagrin, not a single reference existed, was printed or noted in the book. I just could not believe it. Now, if he goes down, he will complain that it's because the establishment is after him rather than that he and his newsletter (don't bother with that, either) are cheating customers by not providing them with _any_ relevant information. I would save your pennies and not invest it here as his knowledge is not just lacking, but completely non-existent. It's as though he picked up a couple of books on natural health and then sat down proclaiming himself an expert. The thing is, you need a great deal of knowledge to work in this field and just as important, a great deal of experience and feedback from dealing with customers to develop a compass as to where you should be going with regard to nutrition and health concerns. This was just a rage against the pharma-cartel (which is wholly justified, but cannot make up the entire book!) and some very basic knowledge on diet, nutrition, and the danger of additives that someone can easily access by researching natural health topics at any library (lookup enzymes, raw food diets, or Biogenic Living, for example) or by asking any questions of the knowledgeable personnel at any reputable health food store. When it arrived, I took one look through it, and immediately asked for my money back as I have worked in Natural Health Management for the past five years and have more than enough knowledge and experience in this realm to know _what_ I am talking about and am completely aware of when I'm being 'fleeced.' I wouldn't recommend this book if it were the last book on earth on the subject...

The Natural Cures/Kevin Trudeau company stole money from me!!! Even if you are not buying this book from the infomercial, do not give this man any more money as he is a thief and scam artist who is being pursued by the government on Fraud charges. Once his company gets your credit card information (for their "free" newsletter that was offered with the book) they conveniently keep charging your card long after cancelling your order. I tried to cancel numerous time because I did not want it in the first place but they never did. This company charged me multiple times and refused to give me credit. Finally my credit card company had to get involved because Natural Cures found no record of my multiple requests to cancel what I did not order. The company still refused to refund all my money!
Now, after 6 months, they have started charging my credit card again and are giving me the run around about refunding it. I contacted them over a month ago and they are still telling me it will take another 30 days for a refund for something I did not order. Be wary of this man and this company!
1. The information in this book concerning naturalistic treatments are not Trudeau's. This is common knowledge found in countless other venues, books, Web sites and from educated doctors...often at no cost, such as when viewed on Web sites addressing the topic.
2. The book acts as a device to sell more product. The majority of the book is focused on conspiracy theory mumbo-jumbo about government suppression and media censorship keeping people from speaking the truth (insert roll eyes here). Very little of the book is about actual remedies, because in order to know more, you must sign up for his Web site membership (for an extra fee), or buy his follow-up book (for an extra fee). It's typical con-artist fluff meant to extract more money from your wallet. If he was truly concerned about the health of his victims/readers, it seems as though he'd be more willing to provide the information up front, following the purchase of the book, without having to bait-and-switch his way to the supposed answer posed in the title of his book.
4. The title says "cure". Trudeau mentions "cure" in all of the infomercials. Yet, within the first few pages, he says that there is no cure, but that his suggestions are instead a general lifestyle change that will promote healthy living. The statement in the book is the only true statement. If there is a cure, why is there such blatant contradiction to the idea of a cure in the book itself? If there is a cure, where are the studies? Where is the proof? Why would everyone in the medical industry, the media, the government, the FDA, scientists, doctors...throughout not just America, but throughout the entire world, deny their own loved ones and family members cures to their terminal illnesses to further an agenda?Read more ›
