I agree with MAG102886, he is a total quack. He has had so many lawsuits against him it nots funny.

Ivy he is a television salesman. He has books about natural cures, and of course he is supposed to cure "anything".

Thanks, Nanners.

With so many instant cures in the world, why are so many of us still sick? :-/

i borrowed his first book from a friend for giggles (no way was i going to buy it - but if you do, it is not "free" cos s/h is like $20). anyhoo, he had some interesting stuff in there. he had the abridged story of how aspartame got approved (very interesting and infuriating) and he had some other good stuff, but it was so long and full of him ranting and just fluff to fill pages. it is a bit like reading an infomercial in that he does give you the spiel a few times about signing up for his news letter from his "team" at a low monthly cost. so there is a come on in the book, but it is not totally devoid of useful information. but i think you can find other and better and more trusted sources for this type of information.

if you really want to learn about this kind of stuff, go to www.mercola.com

A total con man IMHO. I looked thru his book on 'natural' cures and basically most stuff he touches on and he refers you to a website for which you have to pay. He reminds me of an oily snake oil salesman.
Dx with crohns February 25, 2010. But suspect I had it since 2002 with very mild symptoms.

he has this new program called your wish is your command, a series of CDs that train your brain to be a transmitter so you can manifest any wish/desire you have,

LOL, I recently checked out two of Kevin Trudeau's books from the library and pretty quickly concluded that he's a conman. His books are full of all sorts of conspiratorial assertions about doctors, pharma, the FDA, etc. etc. etc. yet I saw no footnotes or references whatsoever.

I agree that he is a con-man.  I've never read his stuff, but my friend got one of his books and said it still never really told you most of the "natural cures," just said that there were some.  I've seen a program on how many times he's been in trouble for various stuff and it's ridiculous.  When they questioned him on it, he never really answered their questions as to whether or not he was guilty, but just beat around the bush with vague statements.
