« Mr. Dumont's Health Tips | Main | Yes, I'd Like a Prescription for Vitamin C »



Lysine works well for herpes. I'm not a doctor, this is just my experience and opinion.


I, like others, was blown away while watching the infomercial. I just purchased the book, Natural Cures at a cost of $39.30 and I think it sucks, because to obtain the information that I thought I would be getting by purchasing the "book", I was instead instructed to go to his website naturalcures.com where you have to pay for membership. The book contains none of the "valuable" information that it claims and I think it sucks to pay that much for a book only to be led to a website to pay more. If I had Mr. Trudeau's email addresss I would personally send him a message letting him know that I think he's just a big con man.


I wrote about stopping my membership and he responded back that he would cancell my memebership because there was no where in the website I seen to cancell but they charge me the next month and took it back and a couple days later charge me again


I want to start by saying I have not read this book but I was intrigued by the infomercial and all the reviews provided here.

I spent much of my college years taking drugs and researching cures for the brain tumor I HAD. I found an unbelievable amount of information on natural cures when I was doing my research more than 20 years ago and used myself as a guinea pig. But the most helpful cure was the mental one, creative visualization, used with many cancer patients and incurable diseases.

Kevin Trudeau is not establishing anything new here. He states he is not a doctor and has discovered nothing, he has only researched it (that means you can also). All the info he provides (or not from what I'm gathering about his book) is already out there, on the net and in local libraries, if you choose to do the research.


Has anyone else had trouble calling the 847-777-7131 number for Natural Cures? A charge was debited from my checking account for a newletter subscription, which I did not authorize. I attempted to contact the phone number listed on my bank statement, which actually connects with Natural Cures, but got an answering service. I was asked to leave my name and a callback number, but was informed that the voice mail box for questions was full. Interesting.

I also believe the book is a scam. My husband and I found nothing of value in it. We're not joining the website, especially since there's no way to contact anyone directly for questions and answers, unless you subscribe of course. But after being scammed the money for the monthly newsletter, which was debited for the full year, why should I trust Kevin or anyone who works for him? Don't buy the book online or over the phone - if you want to review it, you can get it at Borders. I saw the book there when shopping, of course after I had already ordered it. Check your local library and the internet for information on living a healthy and drug free life! That's what my husband and I are going to do. As mentioned by others, knowing your own body, and doing your own research is the best answer. God bless you all for your comments.

on August 8, 2005 I sent a letter requesting the new version of "What thsy don't want you to know" I was disapointed with the first version. Today I received the CD on weight loss instead of the book. Could you look into this matter.
Thank You

This is an excellent book. I've been an advocate of Kevin Trudeau for years, and this book opens my eyes to exactly how these companies work. I was always against the FTC and FDA, and their unholy aliance, but the detail this book goes into is astounding. Buy this book, you'll be glad you did if you truly want the truth.

robert manon

well another healthy person trying to make money .mr kevin trudeau,but with a twist this time [the truth] on the age of goin to war for weapons of mass distruction and alarming terrorist colors, oh gas prices @ $3.00 is quite refreshing. people the truth shall set me free someone shout it.food and drugs truethat.besides organic food is not cheap after all. but i'll pay $3.00lb for chicken and not for gas it sought of puts things in perspective

I did went to Barnes & Noble. I did bought the book. I don't trust FDA, FTC,NCI, and drug companies.

Many of you are buying Trudeau's book hoping for a cure - an herb that works like a pill. Some of you are rejecting the book after seeing that it does not have the easy cure you were looking for. This is not how health works. The truth is that poor health is the result of an unhealthy lifestyle. I think Kevin did not explain this well in the book (and apprently your doctor hasn't explained it to you either), but this is common sense folks. The cure for illnesses caused by an unhealthy lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle. Trudeau's advice is on the money. Perhaps the problem is that you are just too lazy to do it. (And the drug companies are glad you are).

Drugs do not make you healthy - they just mask symptoms. It is impossible for a drug to make you healthy, even though the advertisements make masking symptoms sound like promoting health. If you do the things in the book, symptoms of almost every health problem you have will go away, and you will experience health like you never thought possible. But since this is harder than getting a prescription, many will not do it and will continue to suffer.

I can tell you that I have personally experienced health, energy, and vitality that I had forgotten were possible. I have looked into a number of sources on natural health and I find that they are generally in agreement. As Kevin explains, the information in his book is already out there - it's just that no one's told you before because they couldn't make money doing that. People that know how to actually make you healthy are often silenced by the big money. Wake up and smell the corruption.

Consider this: Let's say your car has squealing brakes or grinding brakes and you take it to the mechanic. What would you think if he gave you ear plugs so you wouldn't hear it? This is basicly what drugs do. If you take a headache medicine, you are ignoring the deeper problem, which may get worse since you are not addressing it. Something is causing the headaches that no one has told you. Drugs NEVER deal with the cause of the problem, so you are still an unhealthy person underneath. They mask symptoms instead of promote health. You will continue to need drugs if you do not deal with the problem.

Natural health usually works from the standpoint of promoting health instead of just treating illnesses. Do you see the difference? Drugs treat illnesses but never promote health. Trudeau may not have explained this well enough in the book. You cannot continue a lifestyle that is causing your illnesses and take some herb and expect to get better. You must stop the behaviors that are causing the illnesses. If you are unwilling to learn and put in effort, you will never be healthy.

If you read Trudeau's book and think it's garbage I think you are crazy. Probably your cognitive functions and reading comprehension are suffering from poor nutrition and other bad health decisions. (That may sound like a joke but it's not). You don't have to change your whole life overnight - do it one step at a time. I started by eating more organic foods and watching for harmful additives. I started supplementing. I then started seeing a chiropractor. I then bought something that helps fight electro-magnetic chaos. Each one of these things benefited my health in noticable ways - some ways I didn't even expect. I have more energy and have a much stronger defense against anything that can cause illness. You can email me and ask me more if you want to.

Let me give you one personal example. After a chiropractic adjustment, my chriopracor told me, "You definitely had an adrenal problem when you were younger - when you were in pubery. I asked him what that meant. He said, "skin." The severe acne that I had on my chest and back 10 years ago was caused by subuxation in my spine. A specific nerve controlling a specific function was being pinched. My chiropractor knew because my spine was so bad at that certain spot. At the time, my dermatologicst prescribed accutane for the acne. Accutane has since been found to cause serious side effects including depression and suicidal ideation. Now they are required to discuss this with patients, but no one ever told me then. Drugs never get at the cause of the problem and they always have harmul side effects.


I read Kevin's book, and there are some good points in the book. However, the information provided is simple informational, as a consumer you will have to do the research to find the truths.

I found a couple contradications in Kevin's book such as, on page 148 item 16 "Do Not Use Nonstick cookware". Then on page 414 on the second line, Kevin states that he cooks with a nonstick skillet.....(huh?)Go figure.

All-in-all it's a good eye-opener...there are other books out there that you can find providing the same information but with detailed information.


I would like to suggest a book called Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy. It can be purchased on Ebay for a few dollars, or at book stores for 10.00. It's all about spiritual healing and many thousands of people have been helped with all kinds of incurable diseases simply by reading it. God bless you.

Peace and Love,


P.S. If you can't afford to buy Science and Health, you can read it free online at www.Spirituality.com


Nothing is free anymore and has never been despite what you might have been told by your Elders.... being or getting healthy and losing weight is no huge secret... get off your lazy rears and exercise and eat healthy... you need to stop eating all that crap from the fast food chains... none of it should ever been eaten by anyone, not even animals. as for the kevin trudeau book... it definitly seems like a scam, but if you are too stupid and naive to see that then good for Mr. Trudeau.....


Something perhaps some of you seem to have forgotten, is that the Large Media, Drug Companies, Food Industry, Oil companies Ect Ect. Are all Multi BILLION dollar industries!...Do you think that shutting someone up, wrecking websites, putting out bad publicity or any of the problems or supposed wrong-doings by Kevin Trudeau are somehow above the ability of these powerful companies? Those types of action are the tip of the iceberg! Wake up...


I just want to know if anyone has ever gotten their money back, or ever been able to unsubscribe from the naturalcures.com web site? I tried and finally had to change my account information at my bank! "Interesting" stuff in the book, but do not ever subscribe to anything from this guy!

Just for all of you who say that this book doesn't tell you specifically how to cure a particular disease - you are wrong . Read it again . It tells you how to cure all diseases by ridding yourself of what caused it in the first place(toxins,prescription and non-prescription drugs,stress,vaccines,antibiotics,etc.)and how to keep it away if you don't want it. It is truth -I personally thank Kevin for his efforts.

Earl Buck

"Thanks to you Kevin".I was heading right straight to my death...until I caught one of your infomercials, I ordered the two books, read them, did every thing in chapter six, took the 100% organic pure virgin coconut oil for 30 days,used the organic applecider viniger with "the mother",and you know...I haven't felt this good since I was 10 years old.I was 30 pounds overweight, I was on blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, anti inflamatory meds, I was a wreck... But now that I have unaddicted myself from all the poisons that the " man" says are good for me and started eating the organic foods that God intended us to eat, I feel so much better. Thank you so very much. Don't take the insults, don't listen to the jibberish... YOU keep blowing that whistle, blow it hard, and long. My Heath is where it should be, thanks to you, and the rest of the nonbeleivers can go straight to hell. I am 50 years old... and can truely say, I'm in the BEST shape of my life...



I read the replies to Trudeau's infomercial at http://www.infomercialwatch.org/tran/trudeau.shtml and sorry but the counterpoints given to what he's saying are LAME and very weak sounding. Look don't be so darn naive to think that people, companies, society won't prey on you. This is not Pleasantville, America. Wake up and Smell the Coffee. (Don't drink it though, it IS bad for you!)

hi, i was wondering if someone could help me get Kevin Trudeau e-mail. i have a question only he is able to answer. You can e-mail me at GeoBurnIII@yahoo.com.


After reading in the "minerals" section of Kevin Trudeau's Handbook of Natural Cures, it states:

"F.. is the element that prevents diseases from decaying the body."

Not true! Exposure to fluorides is the no.1 cause of cancer and illness in people. It lowers intelligence. It weakens your tooth enamel (good news for dentists).

The Fluoride Deception
(Interview with Christopher Bryson)

The Fluoride Deception, May 2004
Based on 10 years of research.

"Airborne fluorides have caused more worldwide damage to domestic animals than any other air pollutant."
US Department of Agriculture, 1970

Between 1957 and 1968
"fluoride was responsible for more damage claims against industry than all twenty [nationally monitored air pollutants] combined."
Dr. Edward Groth, Senior Scientist, Consumer Union


"The very first suggestion that fluoride be added to public water supplies was made by a researcher Gerald Cox at the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh.


"Cox's suggestion that we add fluoride to public water supplies needs to be understood for who was saying it and where he was saying it and what the track record of the Mellon institute was. The Mellon institute was a leading defender of Asbestos for the Asbestos Industry. Today Industry are facing a tidal wave, crippling tidal wave of lawsuits from people who have had their health damaged, who've been killed by Asbestos. Well for generations the Mellon Institute produced research that said that mesothelioma was caused by something other than Asbestos. That's how you have to understand the Fluoride Issue. Industry was concerned about fluoride pollution and about lawsuits of a similar magnitude for fluoride polltion, so it's no coincidence that the Mellon Institute makes the first suggestion that fluoride be added to public water supplies."


Dr Harold Hodge for most of the Cold War was the leading scientific defender of the safety of low doses of fluoride and the beneficial effects of water fluoridation."

"Harold Hodge we now know was the co-orchestrator of the Human Radiation Experiment in which citizens in hospitals in like Rochester and in Oak Ridge were injected with plutonium by scientists under Harold Hodge's direction."

"Join the dots, if Harold Hodge and the University of Rochester are injecting people with plutonium and uranium and at the same time they are reassuring us about fluoride safety, what's the connection?"


"Harold Hodge was the chief toxicologist of the Manhattan Project..."

"The Manhattan Project needed enormous quantities of fluoride to make nuclear weapons, to make the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima, so the Manhattan Project were concerned about fluoride toxicity."

"Because of complaints that animals and humans have been injured by fluoride fumes in [the New Jersey] area... the University of Rochester is conducting experiments to determine the toxic effect of fluoride."
Lt. Col. Cooper B. Rhodes to General Leslie Groves, May 2, 1946.

"information which would invite or tend to encourage claims against the Atomic Energy Commission or its contractors, such portions of articles to be published should be reworded or deleted."

Paul: As is now being revealed by declassified government documents the publication of scientific information collected by Atomic Energy Commission scientists such as Harold Hodge that could increase the chance of litigation against the bomb programme by workers or downwind communities was forbidden. If water fluoridation was found to be harmful then the US bomb programme as well as many other fluoride polluting industries would have been open to massive litigation.

"The documents indicate that the University of Rochester's fluoride research... was performed in anticipation of lawsuits against the bomb program for human enjury. Studies undertaken for litigation purposes by the defendants would not be considered scientifically acceptable today, because of their inherent bias to prove the chemical safe."
Jacqueline Kittrell, Public Interest Lawyer, 1997

"...the Kettering aboratory at one time on of the largest private laboratories dealing with issues of toxicity."

"we know Kehoe's name best for his career long defence of the safety of adding lead to gasoline. Kehoe spent a professional lifetime from his pulpit at the Kettering Laboratory assuring the nation that lead added to gasoline was entirely safe. Of course, that's been thoroughly discredited. The toll of health injuries, of neurological injury, injuries to children alone from adding lead to gasoline is almost incalculable and for that we really can thank Dr Robert Kehoe. He soldiered on lead's behalf for his professional lifetime and he did so being paid by The Ethyl Corporation who were the makers of tetra-ethyl lead.

The same job that Robert Kehoe did laundering lead's image on Industry's behalf he did for fluoride.""

"Kehoe along with Harold Hodge was a leading defender of fluoride safety in the workplace and he also was a leading promoter of water fluoridation."


"If you go into the files of Dr Robert Kehoe at the Kettering Laboratory you'll come across the existence of a hitherto unknown entity known as the Fluorine Lawyers Committee, and Kehoe worked for the Fluorine Lawyers Committee at the University of Cincinnati doing their bidding, providing ammunition to the Fluorine Lawyers Committee so that they could defend their corporate clients; ALCOA (Aluminum Company of America), DuPont, Monsanto, the US Steel against fluoride lawsuits."

"The book makes clear for the first time that selling of fluoride to the American Public was done by the best in the business, by the father of public relations Edward Bernays. Edward Bernays is Sigmund Freud's nephew and he was a machiavellian genius, small in size yet cast a towering shadow over the 20th century.

"19,293 DENTISTS ADVISE, Smoke Viceroys!"

"Bernays understood that people have an unconscious trust in their doctor or their dentist and if you can persuade doctors and dentists that fluoride is safe and good then you're able to reach the rest of the Nation, people believe their doctors and dentists, and that was a way of promoting fluoride for Bernays."


"Very few dentists are aware that the fluoride in public water supplies aren't pharmaceutical grade product, it is in fact an Industrial waste. It's the waste from Florida Phosphate Industry. In the 1950s the Florida Phosphate Industry was being sued by farmers and citizens living near those Plants because of the fluoride, it was killing their cattle, destroying their crops. The Florida Phosphate Industry today is prevented from having to dispose of its industrial effluence in a toxic waste dump by the device of shipping that in tanker trucks around the country and dumping it in our water supply."

"...in 1950 the Public Health endorsed water fluoridation, almost immediately there was a national movement against fluoride and that was led by Dr George Waldbott. We should all know George Walbott's name, he was the first physician to warn of the dangers of a fatal allergic reaction to penicillin. Waldbott was one of the first physicians to warn of the dangers of Emphysema from smoking. He saw in his own surgery, in his practice in Detroit, Michigan that people were coming in with these ailments, unexplained ailments, wether it was back pain or gastric distress, muscle fatigue, headaches, and he figured out that it was low dose fluoride. As with a lot of drugs or chemicals there's a small subset of people whom are uniquely allergic to the chemical, and Waldbott realised that it was fluoride. He performed a whole series of double-blind experiments where people were given fluoridated water without knowing it and the symptoms recurred, and very quickly Waldbott's name rather than being seen as this Giant of public health, committed to safe-guarding public health, somebody who warned us about penicillin or tobacco suddenly George Waldbott becomes this marginal fringe figure who is criticized for his opposition to fluoride. And that's something that takes place again and again and again."

"Speaking out as a doctor or a dentist against fluoride is the third rail, it's fatal to your career. We don't know Geroge Waldbott's name because he was smeared by the Public Health Service for his opposition to fluoride."

Fluoride & Cancer
The Firing of Dr. William Marcus

In the 1990s the senior toxicologist for the EPA's Office of Water said that the cancer tests that had been done on fluoride, where laboratory animals were given fluoride, he said that those results had been gerrymandered that in fact the equivocal verdict that fluoride was a carcinogen ought to have been much stronger. He said that fluoride given to rats had produced bone cancer and liver cancer and that those results had been doctored to make it look as though fluoride hadn't caused as much cancer."

Dr. William Marcus
Fmr. Senior Science Advisor,
EPA Office of Water
"I've been in the toxicology business and studies of this nature for nearly 25 years, and I've never seen that. Never, ever seen where every single in-point that was a cancer in-point had been downgraded. I'd seen one or two in-points arc it over, usually on a definition of what is a cancer and that particular tissue, but I've never seen every one of them downgraded. I found that very suspicious."

To learn more about the Marcus case see:

"Marcus was fired, literally Marcus was fired and a Federal Judge ruled that Marcus was fired because of his outspoken opposition to fluoride."

66% of U.S. water supplies are currently fluoridated
-with industrial waste-

Since 1999, over 60 US Communities have rejected fluoridation proposals.

98% of Western Europe has rejected Water Fluoridation...
...And yet their children's teeth are just as healthy as children's teeth in the U.S.
