    Fraud? Oh yes! I couldn’t be happier this creep is in prison.

    In his first Natural Cures book, he actually says as one of the steps to do to help heal yourself — “Get Scientology and Dianetics Auditing”.

    The FDA forced the Church of Scientology to add a disclaimer to the e-meter (skin galvanometer, one part of a lie detector) used in auditing — “The Electrometer is not medically or scientifically capable of improving the health or bodily function of anyone and is for religious use by students and Ministers of the Church of Scientology only.”

    Auditing is sold by the Co$ bundles called “intensives”, which costs about $3,200.00 for 12.5 hours. Though they can’t publicly say so anymore, auditing is supposed to cure a person of everything from emotional disturbances to cancer. Of course it doesn’t work, and you’ll lose at least $500,000.00 (if you have it) and years of your life to work yourself up the Bridge to Total Freedom. Meanwhile, you are not permitted to take government-approved prescription drugs, especially if they are labeled psychiatric drugs.

    He was also big on the Co$ “Purification Rundown”, which includes sitting in a sauna for up to 5 hours a day (recommended use is about 20 minutes) and taking toxic high doses of vitamins. The idea is that you’ll sweat out toxins from fatty cells in the body, and overuse of niacin and other vitamins will help you accomplish it. It’s complete hogwash and has no basis in scientific/medical fact. It also costs about $2,000.00.

    This is just one area Kevin Trudeau was touting as a miracle cure for illness. It doesn’t include his “approved supplements” and other things that he was making a killing on.

    There are people who died believing Kevin Trudeau and his quackery.
