Dear Migraine Sufferer,I know the impact that migraines have on your life. For the past 22 years I have lived with the pain, worry and fear that migraine attacks bring on. When my wife was still an adolescent, she was involved in an automobile accident and her head hit the windshield of the car and pretty from that day on chronic, painful migraines were a consistent part of her life. We spent years hoping each migraine would not progress to the point where we had to go to the emergency room for her to get shot up with morphine and other very powerful drugs that we desperately wanted to avoid. Even the prescription drugs that her headache specialists recommended had significant side effects. They would sometimes help the migraine pain to diminish or resolve only to find that her migraine would come back in a day or two. The more she used the drugs, the more rebound headaches she experienced, creating a vicious cycle of prescription drug use. This was unacceptable. Being a chemist and researcher, I learned everything I could about migraines. It was clear:
- A life-time of treating the pain of migraines was not the primary goal.
- Preventing as many migraines from happening and avoiding powerful prescription drugs for the pain and their serious side-effects, was clearly the goal to strive for.
- For years, migraine sufferers world wide have been reclaiming their lives with MigreLief. See our product information pages for non-prescription nutritional options guaranteed to make a difference in your life too.
Akeso is a family company. In 1992 Curt Hendrix and his brother Steve decided to launch their goal of being in the dietary supplement and healthcare industry. Over the last 18 years, this small company has helped hundreds of thousands find solutions to the pain and suffering of debilitating migraine headaches. The U.S. government granting them two distinct patents covering the formulation in their internationally known product called MigreLief rewarded the company’s efforts.
For the past 20 years Curt Hendrix has been studying the chemistry of why diseases and health conditions occur, progress, reverse or never occur at all. He has coupled this research with a vast knowledge of naturally occurring compounds that demonstrate therapeutic benefits for preventing or treating many diseases and conditions, as well as some that may protect health well into old age.
Curt graduated with honors in chemistry from the City University of New York. He then spent two years in a chemistry PhD. Program at the City University of New York. Realizing that knowledge of chemistry, though very important, was not enough to pursue research regarding natural medicines and nutrition, he left early and went on to get a Masters degree in human nutrition from the University of Bridgeport and then followed up with getting certified by two different nutrition boards as a Certified Clinical Nutritionist (C.C.N.) and a Certified Nutrition Specialist (C.N.S.)
Curt has been granted numerous scientific patents as a result of the research he has done. These patents or patents pending are in the areas of migraine prevention, Alzheimer’s disease, endometriosis and hypercholesterolemia. He has twice been appointed by the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine of the National Institutes of Health, as the principal investigator in two government grants studying the effects of a natural medicine cocktail, he created, for treating Alzheimer’s disease.
The first grant demonstrated that the cocktail was able to prevent the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease in a mouse model that otherwise 100% of the time, deteriorated quickly and significantly. The results of this research are awaiting publication in a well-known, peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The second grant, which is in progress, is studying whether or not the cocktail can reverse, halt or slow down the Alzheimer’s Disease once it has occurred.
Curt is now the chief science officer for Concourse Health Sciences, a pharmaceutical company developing prescription drugs from natural compounds and for Naturvant, a company dedicated to creating highly researched, natural medicines and supplements for health conscious consumers.
