I have read that he speaks out against vaccines but then I came across this article (http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/trudeau_informercials.html) and am wondering about what he stands for and who is he?

Do you feel he just takes advantage of people?

    • Yeah, he sounds like a scam artist.

    • Have you read either of his books? I've just read the first one, Natural Cures "THEY" Don't Want You To Know About. It's very interesting reading. From that one article, YES, he sounds like a scam artist, but he pretty well explains who he is and what his motivations are in the book. He doesn't lie about any of the negative stuff you can find on him, and tells you straight up that he spent two years in prison (I honestly can't remember what the deal was... I think it was some marketing related deal, some white collar thing). He explains his side of the Bio-Tape and coral calcium issue. There were certainly things in the book we took with a big ol'chunk of sea salt, :lol but overall, I think it's worth reading. He's quite supportive of NFL, he's just also one of those entreprenurial/marketing-minded type sales-y people, and that can be annoying, and he's very repetitive, but says its to get things cememted in your brain. If you pick up things quickly, that gets OLD, fast, but it's still very lively reading.

      What's particularly interesting is that he SLAMS the FDA and pharmaceutical companies as the money grubbing freaks they are, and is adamantly ANTI-pharmaceutical, which of course includes vaccines. And yes, he does specifically slam vaccines in the book, and warns against ever using them, or allowing your children to get them. He also slams the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) for perpetuating the FDA BS with the copyrights and patents and whatnot. He claims that the reason you can't find ANYthing good about him online - or anywhere else - is because the FDA and FTC squash any good thing he tries to do or share with the American people. His natural cures are not instant fixes... they're really more about adopting a toxin free lifestyle, utilizing alternative medical techniques and that sort of thing.

      We don't regret any of the changes we've made since reading the book. We've never felt better, and I've lost 25 pounds, just from radically changing my diet based on some of his recommendations, and also the "blood type diet" recommendations. Neither are based on the idea of trying to lose weight, that was just a happy "side effect" of my finally NOT eating like crap. It helped me to convince my dh to finally stop going with the allopathic medical model, too. :thumb

      It had occurred to me years ago that for any drug company to create a "cure" for any disease, they would be putting themselves out of a job. Then I started reading on here, reading MT's pipe-swinging posts on nutrition and SA, becoming steadily anti-vax, and then my dh brought that book home, hoping it would help us find a way to fix my ds's GERD. It didn't help with that per se, but it helped us walk away from pharmaceutical psuedo solutions (say that fast 5 times :wink) and find a naturopath who helped us figure out a diet, get an IgE type blood test, and create the diet/supplement plan we have been using with ds, which has DRASTICALLY reduced ds's GERD. Hugely. That alone, - getting dh on board with the anti-vax/pharma idea - was WELL worth the money the book costs.

    • I wrote him off as a fraud when my daughter bought his book that claimed to tell you all these natural ways of healing, and while throughout the book he built them all up, at the end of the book, he claims his book was edited by some government acronym and he had to take out all the remedies. Then claimed you should be mad too and do something about it. What a scam.

    • Direct quote from the book:

      Not convinced that vaccines are deadly, cause disease, and should never be used? Then read:

      A Shot In the Dark by Harris L. Coulter and Barbara Loe Fisher (Why the P in the DPT vaccination may be hazardous to your child's health.)

      VACCINES: Are They Really Safe and Effective? by Neil Z. Miller

      What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations by Stephanie Cave, M.D., F.A.A.F.P., with Deborah Mitchell

      (emphasis his)

      I can see why people might get the book and feel they were scammed, because he does not say how to cure anything... He basically says (my paraphrase) "radically change your entire life, according to what I recommend here, and you'll cure yourself of this and that in the process!"

      But there were only a couple of things in his 20-odd item list of things to do that my dh and I thought were downright silly. Most of them are shall we say... "mainstream NFL" type things.

      I liked his Natural Cures book because he absolutely lays into Big Pharma. He puts the big picture together and details the control mechanisms in place to keep us sick and to prevent anyone from breaking into Big Pharma's drug monopoly. Anyone who has spent the money and energy he has to fight the big boys gets my respect. He bought tons of Coral Calcium and was trying to sell it. Many people swear by it. I don't know if it does or does not cure cancer but "cancer" and the "treatment of cancer" are owned by the AMA so anyone who discovers any natural cure for cancer is going to get slammed.

      Anyone who gets attacked the way he has, as far as I'm concerned, is someone to listen to. How many people have heard of Royal Raymond Rife or laetrile or Max Gerson or William Kelley? What happened to Raymond Rife when his cancer cure worked on so many? Trudeau may or may not be fixated on making some money. I don't really care. He's making a stand against a trillion dollar monopoly industry.

      You said that so much more succintly than I did!

    • Yeah, I like much of what he stands for, but I think the substance of his works are much better than his choices as a slick entreprenuer.

      It would be great if there was an outspoken voice like him that doesn't have all of the baggage he does at quick glance.

    • As pp's already said, he's the author of "The Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know About". I've read it and suggest it to everyone. He briefly talks about vaccines in it and how toxic and unnatural they are. And ultimitely, that it's (like everything else) all about the money. I think he's great and want to read his new book. (Although I'm not sure how *new* it is.)

      Ya, and there's a BIG REASON why they're shutting him down from commericials. Think about it. THEY don't want people to know the truth and reality about all they're pills, medications, etc. They don't want people learning about NATURAL things. Heck no. Then who would be filling they're greedy pockets??

      It's not like he's saying take coral calcium and you wont have any disease. He tells you how to Live in order to prevent disease. it's a fact that disease cannot live in a pH balanced environment. so in order to have a balanced pH, you must take care of you body by eating right, not consuming chemicals, etc.

      I agree with this because reading the book, he says alot of things over and over and it did kinda get old..BUT, that's what people need because the majority of America aren't informed like alot of us are so they seriously NEED to get it pounded in their heads, yk?

      Hmm which book is that? Because "the natural cures THEY don't want you to know about" has quite a few pages devoted solely to listing the disease and giving the natural cure.

    • I have read parts of his book, and, yes, most of it was stuff that anyone already involved in learning about health and nutrition already knows. We bought a copy for my MIL at her request.

      BUT, his book has been the only thing to "reach" my MIL and make her start thinking of more natural approaches to problems than running to the doctor and expecting a pill to fix lifestyle problems. She has even said on more than one occasion, "why put something on your skin that you wouldn't want to eat?"

      And, no, it hasn't remarkably changed her life, but she no longer looks at us as freaks when we decline MSG-laden snacks. And she stopped drinking tap water. So, I'd say it was worth the money.

    • His second book contains all the information not contained in the first one, including brand names of remedies.

      This book is what finally got dh on my side of the house too! He bought it, so I guess it all felt like his idea! :lol

      :) That's what I was trying to convey here... and you're absolutely right!!:)

      and he's very repetitive, but says its to get things cemented in your brain. If you pick up things quickly, that gets OLD, fast, but it's still very lively reading.

    • My parents wouldn't listen to me about the dangers of vaccines, despite my own son dying from then and my almost dying from them, until they read his book.

      Check this out....

      This guy is a quack and is taking advantage of sick people.

      He has been banned from infomercials and keeps getting into trouble with the FTC.

      I would take what he says witha grain of salt.

    • I read about all of his legal troubles before reading his book, but his book doesn't peddle any suipplements that he is selling, if I remember correctly, but more a lifestyle philosophy.

      As for taking advantage of sick people, I just want you to consider this: my father was diagnosed with severe lung cancer in both lungs and given about 6 months to live in 2004. His Russian wife put him in touch with a retired oncologist in St. Petersburg who only deals with alternative treatments at this time. My father was cured by taking 3 specific mushrooms fermented in sweet wine and juicing lots of beets for 6 months. www.fungo.ru

      If someone were to advertise this therapy here, many are sure to say: they are just taking advantage of sick people.

      I am happy my father told the leading cancer treatment center in Houston to stick it.

      he is still cancer free.

    • OMG you guys, Kevin Trudeau is a lunatic.

      I thought his first book was a great read, and THEN I READ THE SECOND BOOK. He starts going off about how he has seen aliens at Area 51 and he has had meetings with world leaders and how although he looks like he's 40 he's really like, 70 years old. He's off. his. rocker.
