The cures Kevin Trudeau has advocated include taking long walks to cure depression and undergoing 15 enemas in 30 days. In 2014 Trudeau received a 10-year prison sentence for profiting from fraudulent claims.
Other cures Trudeau advocated included avoiding food sold by publicly traded companies, taking no prescription drugs, replacing metal fillings, jumping on a trampoline, putting magnets on the fingers and toes, and avoiding microwave ovens, dry cleaning of clothes, electric tumble dryers and deodorant.
Trudeau detailed many of his supposed cures in his book "Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You to Know About." The premise is that the government and the health industry are working to suppress information about cures so that people keep paying for prescription drugs and other medical treatments.
Trudeau received a conviction in 2013 for failing to comply with a 2004 court order that he halt fraudulent advertising for another book he wrote titled, "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You to Know About." An infomercial for the book ran thousands of times despite the order. Trudeau also had to pay $37 million in a civil lawsuit over the book. The weight-loss book and the natural cures book both were national best sellers.
