I was watching the infomercial with Kevin Trudeau promoting his series of books on natural cures for just about everything. He spoke how the Govt has sued him several times trying to shut him up and ban his books. Why would the Govt be so concerned over something unless they were trying to cover something up? has anyone bought these books? has anyone tried it and have testimonials ? I hate to spend money on something and it be just another scam

one of the reasons he keeps getting sued is he is a phony—Hugh Downs should be ashamed! It is all a trick to get you to pay money for his website,that is why you walk away from his info on tv and you still do not know what any "cures" are

yea Hugh Downs for that and Montel Williams for what ever it is he is trying to peddle on his infomercial. I let my cable t.v. go when I got on a fixed income So I watch free broadcast t.v. I couldn't believe how many hours of infomercials that are on in a 24hrs period. Saturday and Sunday mornings are littered with them and after about 1am they all kick in. Thank God This new digital over the air t.v. has added a lot of new channels. I have three PBS's I know they have their telethons a couple times a year but you wont have those stupid infomercials shoved in your face. That's what I usually watch when I have those nights I cant sleep

I hate to admit that I bought one of his books and did not learn a single thing. It seems from what I remembered that you had pay more to join his website to get specific information on any cure. I sent the book back.

I always check the library or (an eBay company). People are always selling their internet books. I also get most of my current best-sellers from (book of the month club)…almost 90 to 95% of the books are $9.95 with free shipping. A few are $12.95.

I'm not one for big govt and I'm all for free enterprise. But I really believe there should be strict guide lines for advertisements and claims made about products. I believe they should be held accountable for every claim made. for example I read food labels on every product I buy and the labels don't always reflect the claims made on the front of the package. I have found sometimes packages labeled to be healthier, diet, lean, smart choice, heart healthy, etc. isn't any better than the package next to it on the store shelf and even sometimes they are worse. I know "buyer beware" but I also believe it should be "seller don't misrepresent"

That is so true. Unfortunately, those who suffer are easy targets because we are so eager for relief. I don't buy "diabetic" anything. I don't fall into the "low calorie" lies and the "net carb" deceit. You are right, read those labels. Unfortunately, people don't come with one that says 10g of schmooze, 5g of deceit, 100% RDA of crap. Hmmm, maybe I am on to something now. LOL

Economic stimulation at any cost and by any means is the desire of civilized humanity !
Everything has been or will be given a price tag, unhappy and\or unhealthy people spend more money than any one else in the process of trying to secure just a bit of happiness or good health, the easiest people to exploit are those in some sort of need, scams abound!

I bought one of his books…the add sounded so good and I was on this kick to try natual stuff. Well I read the book…not one thing in the book about any natural cures…not a single one. Just all about how they are out there and the government wont let us have them. And alot of ranting and raving, especialy twards the end. I was dissapointed…I paid 17 bucks for a book of rants.

That is good to know. It is sad. I hear all the time about how the government is squelching ideas. but what good is it if we cannot tap into it somehow. Sometimes I think it is a ploy to just get us to the health food stores and spend more money than we have. I do believe that nature has a lot to offer, but when it comes pre packaged and with a bow on it...buyer beware.

It's exactly that. The people who claim most of all that the government are covering things up are the ones that are trying to sell the information or products that they claim are being covered up. It's marketing at it's simplest. Tell people you have something that is being suppressed by "the man" and you have a whole bunch of people who want to buy it. Throw in the health angle and you add hope into the equation and have a home run advertising campaign, even if it's not really moral.

Well think of what he is doing can he make money off the books or are they at cost? If they are trying to make money off them then you know what there goal is ????
Its up to you
If there was a cheaper better way dont you think the ins comps would be all over it ????? They love to save money.
Best wishes

Thanks Harlen you make a very good point. I guess I had a bad case of wishful thinking.

Don't we day it will not be a wish anymore. We will have our answers. Keep wishing, just be careful. LOL
