Beware of ‘free’ offer from ‘Christian’ Dr. Richard Gerhauser

Lies are a hallmark of evil.

Deceptive advertising is a form of lying.

About a week ago, I received this email from Activist Post:

Dear Reader,

8 years ago, this M.D. uncovered a group of seniors doing the unthinkable… cheating the “natural laws” of human lifespans.

And they all show these 4 weird signs that they’ll live past 100.

Do you show them?

-NHR (Natural Health Response) Research Team

P.S. These seniors might be living extremely long lives, but you’d never realize how old they really are. Click here for their secrets.

We’ve all received such “sponsored” emails before from websites to which we subscribe. Invariably, if you click on the embedded link, you’re sent to a page with a long video that you cannot speed through. But I fell for this one, my curiosity stirred by the claim of discovery of a Tabula Vita (fancy Latin for “map of life”) that accounts for a group of seniors who are defying the odds and living beyond normal human lifespans.

The video began with a brief segment on the alleged discovery of Noah’s Ark. Then a medical physician, Richard H. Gerhauser, who says he’s a devout Christian, begins his pitch. But 15-20 minutes into the video, Gerhauser still hasn’t even begun to identify who these remarkable seniors are, and the “4 weird signs that they’ll live past 100”, which Gerhauser calls Tabula Vita, Latin for the map of life.

So I went looking on the web for information on Gerhauser.

To begin, Richard H. Gerhauser graduated in 1981 from the University of Nevada, Reno, School of Medicine. He is board-certified in the field of “public health” and claims to have expertise in flu, sports medicine, and nutrition disorders. He currently practices “preventive medicine” at the Quality of Life Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona.

Dr. Gerhauser received 40 ratings on Vitals, with an average of only 3.3 stars (maximum 5 stars): 17 excellent; 13 bad. Gerhauser’s negative reviews are instructive:

“I just spent an hour watching the video by Gerhauser revealing God’s four things that keep us alive and healthy sometime into the 100’s. This is all based on the Bible and the fact that Noah and many others had much longer life spans then [sic] we do. I am a Christian Counselor, with a master’s Degree in Theology, Psychology, and Christian Counseling. I have also taught the Bible for 25 years. So as I was reading, the doctor was very convincing, using scriptures to back up what he was saying. All the time he is saying that as a Christian he does not want to charge anything for these two books. I kept reading hoping against hope that he really was going to send these books for free. But alas, I just knew there would be a catch. Which of course is to lock you in to a yearly subscription to his Health News Letter for $74.00, with a sliding scale of 37.00 (if you are a senior citizen) and then for a six month subscription only 19.00 As a Christian, when someone says that something is FREE, then it is really FREE, and does not use the FREE word as a bribe to get you to buy something else. Which of course is the real goal here.Knowing God like I do, I highly doubt that He would give his secrets of a long life to someone like Gerhauser who is merely using the FREE word in order to actually make a required UNFREE price to buy his News Letter. Not only that, but IF we use the four secrets that God supposedly revealed to him, which 99.9% are guaranteed to work, then WHY would we need his news letter with advice on how to get healthy, etc? The bottom line is they want your credit card on file so they can automatically bill you every year for a new subscription to his news letter. I happen to know that Psalm 139 states that God APPOINTS the exact number of days that each of us will live while we are still being formed in the womb. So actually HE has already decided what each of our life spans will be before we are even born? So there is a day ahead for each of us that God Himself has appointed the exact date of our death. Read Psalm 139. So the reality is WE CANNOT CONTROL the day that we are going to die on no matter how much gray salt, or Noah’s Wine, or Cellular REnewal, or DNA etc. we take or don’t take. We are not God and we cannot determine how many years we will live. So on that note, I suggest that you do not buy his news letter simply because for a Christian he LIED in order to make money.”

I paid $37 for supposed free books and a supply of supplements. I got the books in 10 days but no supplements. There is no place to call or email this ‘doctor’ to get my guaranteed refund. This sight and probably the doctor are a fraud – do not lose your money here. I am putting in a claim against him. He can have his dang books back. All he does is suggest what supplements to buy from other vitamin outlets. A REAL HOAX! Too bad I can’t hit minus stars.”

“I don’t want to say that what Dr. Gerhauser has to offer isn’t valuable for our health. But to say it is free and then require that I pay for a subscription and that with a ticking clock, is asking me to make a hasty decision. I’m suffering major health problems (disabled) and simply don’t have the money for this for another 7 days. So his pressured dishonest tactics just precluded my being able to access the years of health I could have. Shame on you Dr. Gerhauser. Change the free but it’s not free and the do it now thing and I think you have a really Christian thing here assuming your research is correct.”

“Dr. Gerhauser said there’s no cost. However, in my opinion, this appears to be a bait and switch scheme. He also uses God in his presentation to prove his honesty and sincerity. By the end of his long online presentation, he encourages you to purchase his monthly newsletter. So, in reality, if I’m not mistaken, the ‘free’ publication is sent after you sign up for the newsletter that’s not free.”

“If the Tabula Vita is indeed a gift from GOD to mankind then it is not for a man to profit from it but to freely share it. Old wives and washer women must have read this as a lot of traditional old remedies are found in there, many freely available in your local library!”

This is the response I wrote to that Activist Post email:

“Shame on you for sponsoring this charlatan!”

My conclusion: Avoid this charlatan like the plague.

I was going to say I can’t believe you fell for this but of course I can, having done the same. Only to ask myself later, what was I thinking? There is no such thing as free, especially on the internet. The only thing that I know of that’s free is Linux

I’ve seen this approach several times. A nice story, a lot of talk about the hero, lots of repeated promises dragged out too long. Then sign on for automatic billing for whatever they are selling. However, He may have some good things, and all one has to do is remember to cancel before a month goes by.

Being interested in health matters, I have watched a few of these (long, drawn-out) videos just to see what their scam is. I no longer watch, since it is always a scam, leading to a paid newsletter. The recommended supplements are always expensive and likely no better than supermarket junk. Nevertheless, by the law of numbers, their claims will always attract new victims.

I’m afraid I’m such a skeptic that someone holding the real “secret of life” would probably go without a response from me.

In a time of universal deceit skepticism is essential. Hyper-skepticism however often yields diminishing returns. I employ the cognitive tool of inference to the best explanation; it saves time and if you are seeking truth there is way too much BS to sort through. Also litmus tests; if someone is promoting, for instance, climate change as an existential threat, I know their logic is flawed, or they are misguided, or they are simply lying. And then I look for motive. Another test is if someone wants my money – automatic rule-out

The secret to longevity is in the genes. We have inherited from both our parents what they in turn inherited from their parents and so on back six generations, as we progress the quality of life gets better and we live longer but, hell, why would I want to be a nonagenarian, feeble, aching and beating the odds? I don’t want to be a statistic so let the Good Lord have the last say, all we need to do is prepare ourselves so we can go as HE planned it.

Yes, Gerhauser pulls the old bait-and-switch trick to get that credit card number! Another site that I can’t tolerate is Porter Stanberry’s. Both Gerhauser & Stansberry employ the tactic of paraphraxis, the art of taking three paragraphs to explain what really could be said in a sentence or two! To the best of my memory, this tactic was introduced and revved up by Rodale Press in the early 1980’s. As someone who generally cannot tolerate the sound of the human voice, I can’t tolerate people who just won’t shut up! When I watch a video, I give that video a… Read more »

We certainly agree on that. C.S. Lewis is my favorite for saying the most in the fewest words. That formulaic circumlocution makes me dizzy. Think Stephen King. I’m sure they pay him by the word.

Almost daily I get stuff like this in one of my email accounts, and that one I use primarily for junk mail like that. Once in awhile, I’ll find something I could use & pay the $10 for shipping. If it’s a video, I’ll close the tab. Sometimes it’ll ask me if I really want to leave – I’ll click on “cancel”, and then the text version of that page comes up. I can scroll to the bottom to find out how much it is, and sometimes, going to close it again will offer a discounted price, and if I… Read more »

Not sure any of you believe this but its true, it goes back to their Kabala. 33 is a master prime number. They hide it in everything they do. They believe if they can hide the 33 in their work it gives them more power over you. You dont have to believe it, they do.

With UFO “close encounters” the supposed ET’s appear in threes and have a tendency to appear at 3:33 AM. There are some legitimate researchers (there are a few) who suggest that the “aliens” are discarnate extra-dimensional non-human entities – demons in other words, deceptively presenting themselves as benevolent ET’s. I try to stick to things that are readily verifiable but sometimes we have to go too far to obtain the truth. I agree, something going on in Arizona. And what, in your opinion, is the significance, in this context, of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ at the age… Read more »

We have 14 yrs folks. What we’re seeing now is their forced choas stage. They dont want you thinking clearly.” Have you noticed the former barmaid from NY, AOC also states “14 years”?

Eowyn, thank you for your very informative article, I did have my suspicions, as I have been caught and found myself subscribed to a couple of quite expensive (in Australia due to poor exchange rate @ $100 per month) newsletters when acquiring a so called “free” health book. Sadly desperate people like myself (a stroke victim) will always be caught with this sort of advertising

Let me go ahead and spoil the contents for everyone coming to this site later: his cancer cure is selenium. His Alzheimer’s cure is resveratrol. For energy he recommends “electron-rich” foods that supposedly donate electrons to the mitochondria, fish and fats, not drinking fluoridated water, avoiding bromide, probiotics, meditation, deep breathing, avoiding excessive electromagnetic field exposure, and the PQQ supplement (enhanced with CoQ10) for mitochondria. He recommends boosting one of the body’s internally produced antioxidants, glutathione, with NAC (a book I read says lipoic acid converts into it better, especially with the cysteine amino). His therapy for arthritis is a… Read more »

There is no scriptural evidence whatsoever for a “Tabula Vita” related to the ark of Noah. BTW, in his video he claims that a team of 8 “discovered” the ark 10 years ago in 2010 (yes, and you can “discover” a pair of socks in your drawer!) when the very photo that he includes of the ark is found on Wikipedia and shows how the ark appeared in 2007!! He points to the long-living inhabitants of an island close to Turkey, but makes no mention of the similarly long-lived residents of the other “Blue Zones” around the world. One is… Read more »

I find it extremely unChristian that he will not allow the Tabula Vita to be sent to Australia! We were established as a Christian country originally and still have about 50% of people who believe in God, so why are we cut out? I also agree that it is not free. You have to join the magazine by subscription and cannot pay by Paypal which is always a dead give away. So let’s go back to our bibles and also think rationally. What would happen to the world which is already stretched for resources to feed our population if people… Read more »

Expanding on Cory’s comment, you should take Trimethyl Glycine (TMG) with niacinamide riboside (NR also known as Niagen) or any other high dose precursors for NAD+. Other precursors are Niacinamide (B3) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). TMG provides extra methyl groups that are needed to metabolize these high dose precursors without causing side effects related to under methylation in our bodies. There are some quite excellent YouTube videos on all of the above. There are some suggestions that the above precursors would be better if taken sublingually. Benefits of taking n-acetyl cysteine (NAC), selenium and any kind of lipoic acid together… Read more »

Personally I don’t understand all of the negative comments here. I enjoy learning and exploring different medical ideas, yet I am smart enough to discern for myself which I care to believe. I do agree with many statements made on the ad site and I have taken advantage of the free trial offer because I would like to read more.
For those of you who can’t read or don’t take the time, here is the link for the phone number to get your refund which is clearly listed on the site in 2 or more places.

I read a lot of these offers because i once bought some and they sell my email to marketers like this. However, I also notice that some of the biggest crybaby’s are the ones that claim high moral ground. Don’t have a lot of sympathy for those that focus on they said it was free and then balk when the marketer tries to get a return on their efforts. If the product is no good then say so, but to complain about an ad on product to cover cost is little more than a greedy heart.
