Reader's Thoughts

Laura

This book is so A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, it almost is inspiring enough to go for a career change! Holisitic medicine anyone?... I love how boldly this books speaks out about all the lies that are kept hidden from the public from the FDA, the FTC, and the pharmaceutical companies. The health care and food industry in this country is putting us in severe danger and it is only going to get worse. My advice...don't be deceived...and READ THIS BOOK!!!!

Medical advice from a used car salesman? If people want to kill themselves a gun to the head is much faster.

I bought this book because I suffer from Fibromyalgia and thought I might learn something that would help me. I did spend $300 on a magnetic mattress, but I still wake up as sore as I did before. Or maybe I would be worse without it. Who knows?This book was thought provoking though, as far as medications go. As an RN I do think that people take far too many of them, and for every good effect there are bad effects on the body. I also came away from this book thinking the following: Treating your body as a temple is a wonderful thing, but it is an awful lot of work!

I don't like to spend money on a book unless I know for sure that I will love it. I requested it from the library and spent four hours reading a book that basically told me that the government and the drug companies all want us to be sick because drugs do not treat the root causes of an illness, but rather the symptoms.My main disappointment was reading thoughout the book that I would have to join his website [http://www.naturalcures.com] in order to get the needed information on these natural cures.

This is another book that is a must read for everyone. This book has made me more aware of how we are really being lied to and poisoned as a society. Trudeau's book was a catlylst for major change in my life and inspired me to do more research into my own health and well being.

I am completely baffled as to why any responsible publisher would put out this complete and utter piece of rubbish.

Marci

I liked this book. The information is good but I hated how if you "really want the information" you have to join and pay online to get the "actual" information. It's very repetitive and slams drug companies and doctors pretty well.

Megan

Someone gave this book to me, with a recommendation that it was an excellent book, full of great information, blah, blah, blah. No way. This book was full of common sense knowledge and promises of future information if you buy more things this man offers. It was complete and utter bullshit. The book can be summarized in two sentences. "The FDA sucks and they are out to get me (and you). Eat properly, avoid additives and preservatives and you won't feel as bad as you do now." I am, however, astounded at the author's sheer marketing genius. Not many people can make millions saying absolutely nothing. He must have balls of steel.

Kevin is not a doctor, nor does he claim to be. However, if you look past all of his sales-speak, he has done a fantastic job of compiling (from various sources) lots of great and validated natural health topics and information. However, he could have been less wordy, tooted his horn less and covered the same material in about half the pages. Still worth the read.

The book was definitely interesting. I agree with probably 2/3rds of his ideas. There were a number of points where he would repeat himself or his statistics, though usually supporting different arguments on different topics, so it wasn't too bad, it just felt weird, like he forgot that you had just read the previous chapter.One thing that this book does help you remember is that you need to take interest in your own health and that any current medical belief can and will be overturned and improved in the future. There is no reason to blindly trust a doctor with your health. Some of his ideas were a bit far fetched and made me chuckle that he would write it. For example he mentions using Apple Cider Vinegar in place of some other thing because it 'has some magical property that...'. :) Ha! 'Magical property'. But even with the dorky writing style, he has a lot of good ideas throughout the book, I'd just recommend that you read the book with a grain of salt. Organic sea salt apparently would be best ;)I've got a copy to lend if you are nearby.

3.5 actually...This book is what I would call a good catalyst or starter. It really opens up your eyes to the bigger picture, but it fails to walk you through the door.It's a must read, but you can't stop there once you do. Afterwards, you should check out "The Sunfood Diet Success System" or "Living on Live Food" or anything by Jewel Pookrum, David Wolfe, Gabriel Cousens, basically stuff that will fill the void that this book will create in you if you haven't heard these concepts and truths before. I'm very glad that he wrote it, because it's necessary, and as R&W said below, he is the man for the job. A alike, B alike...takes one to know one...and since he was a 'fraudster' it seems that helps him to call out all of bullshit very very well.As far as the style..yeah, the editing is awful, and the actual list of "cures" wasn't really as pervasive as the book leads you to believe, but that's mainly because the entire BOOK is a cure. Because all change begins in the mind first, and once you see that the government and big business and pharm companies are not looking out for your best interest, it places that responsibility squarely on you. A lot of people can't handle that or feel lost...that's also why I suggest reading more positive and fulfilling books as follow-ups.- Project Mayhem

This is the book that started it all for me back in 2005. It exposes the corruption in government and Big Food, and teaches you how to be a more savvy consumer and steward of your health. Author Kevin Trudeau discusses everything from the common toxic ingredients in our food to natural remedies for a host of diseases and ailments.Have you ever wondered how the chlorine and fluoride in your tap water are affecting your health? How about hydrogenated oils and trans fats in the food supply? Do you know what the two reasons are that a person becomes ill? These are just a few of the hundreds of nutrition and health questions that are answered in this book. Kevin Trudeau does an excellent job of giving step-by-step lists that detail how to clean up your diet, lose weight, and naturally detoxify your body. Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About gives you the information you need to overhaul your thinking about health and nutrition. It is filled with actionable information on the hows and whys of reaching your health goals. If you are brand new to learning about how Big Food, Big Pharma, and government are affecting your health by manipulating the food supply, this book is the place for you to start.

Ok, so I know, I'm going to have my PharmD VERY soon, therefore this book should have just reconfirmed everything I already knew and suspected about big pharma and pharmaceutical products and manufacturers, since I've studied all this ad nauseum for the past several years and have determined that I"m getting this degree so that people will listen when I tell them they have better options than drugs.... - but no.These are BIG shoes to fill, but...THIS IS THE WORST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. EVER!! Did he not hire an editor with the billions of dollars he has made scamming the American public? Or any of his other financial scams that landed him time in the big house but still managed to make him a wealthy mogul?Read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle or Omnivore's Dilemma if you care about what you put in your body. Read the "The Green Pharmacy" if you want to learn about more natural ways to heal your body other than with manufactured drugs. Read books by Gabriel Cousins - raw food will change your life, if you can afford the time and money it takes to prepare and scope it out. Go vegetarian or eat only local free range organically fed grass finished meat. EAT ORGANIC LOCAL PRODUCE. This is NOT rocket science, and I just saved you 3 hours of fist-shaking wrath that this book even got published.This man doesn't tell you anything useful - he whispers promises in your ear of ACTUALLY telling you...if only you'll buy his next book since it's in there!! I'm going to stop writing this review so that my blood pressure will normalize again.

What a crock, don't bother. He says he's in this to help people, not to make money...yeah, right!

R&W

I approached the best selling "Natural Cures 'they' don't want you to know about" with a healthy dose of scepticism. After all, should we really take advice on healthy eating from a convicted fraudster? But I've concluded that Kevin Trudeau is the ideal person to write about the total scam that is the pharmaceutical industry and its packaged food counterpart."Natural Cures......" is basically a tirade against the culture of drugs and packaged foods that have taken over the modern world. Trudeau explains how this culture of drugs and snack foods (and some other products) is undoubtedly responsible for making us sick in many ways. He goes on to offer ways to reduce toxins in the body and cure or prevent many diseases.A lot of what Trudeau teaches us is nothing new for most of us (snack foods have numerous chemicals, GM food loses much of its nutrition, etc.) but he goes to great lengths to make us realise just how serious the problem has become, just how extensive the lobbying and coercion of politicians can be and just how misleading drug or food advertising has become. So many lies and scams are exposed in this publication that there will be at least one revelation for everybody.After making all this clear, Trudeau goes on to offer tips and ideas - many of them beautifully simple - on leading healthier lifestyle to clear the body of toxins and "never get sick again".A lot of the advice is superbly simple yet often something we would never think of (Buy organic fruits and make a fruit shake every day, don't buy any product with ingredients you can't pronounce, etc.) and very passionate. Trudeau clearly practises what he preaches and has very extensive knowledge of the industries he discusses.It's true that some of the author's ideas make him his own worse enemy. Statements such as "Animals never get sick" and "Wearing a magnetic ring will help you eliminate chaos" simply invite his many critics to knock him. But there are so many articulate, practical and genuinely heartfelt arguments and suggestions in this book, I get the impression many critics have based their reviews on their dislike for the writer.This book did what "Super Size Me" and "Fast Food Nation" failed to do. It made me realise the dangers of my diet (as the aforementioned works also did) but it also gave me the inspiration and impetus to actually make a positive change. I've done two juice fasts and a water fast since I got this book two months ago. I've taken up many of Trudeau's ideas and I feel far better for it.Highly recommended, if only to see what the fuss over this NY Times bestseller is all about.
