The Man Behind “MIGRELIEF” – Making a Difference in the Lives of Migraine Sufferers Worldwide for over 20 years

Subscribe to receive the Curt Hendrix Longevity & Disease Prevention BulletinCurt Hendrix, M.S, C.C.N, C.N.S, is the Chief Scientific Officer for Akeso Health Sciences, the manufacturer of the highly successful, comprehensive nutritional migraine supplement “MigreLief® Triple Therapy with Puracol™’.  Multi-patented MigreLief was made available to the public in 1997, and is a 100% drug-free dietary supplement formulated to help maintain normal cerebrovascular tone and function in chronic migraine sufferers.  Curt is dedicated to the research and development of condition-specific natural medicines and innovative leading-edge solutions for migraine sufferers worldwide.

Curt has been named as the Principal Scientific Investigator in multiple National Institutes of Health (NIH) governmental grants studying the benefits of natural medicines on Alzheimer’s disease.

A Unique Perspective
With a focus on nutritional applications of herbal and natural medicine (based on scientific application) Curt’s unique combination of education, training, and experience in chemistry, medicine, nutrition, the supplement industry, NIH sponsored research, and pharmaceutical drug development, generates a perspective leading to an intimate understanding of the workings of the human body.  After spending two years in a physical chemistry Ph.D. program at the City University of New York, Curt obtained a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. He is board-certified both in clinical nutrition (CCN) and as a nutrition specialist (CNS) from the American Academy of Nutrition.

Curt has spent the last several decades researching and archiving the potential benefits, effects and mechanisms of literally thousands of naturally occurring compounds (plants, amino acids, vitamins/minerals and their metabolites and other nutrients and supplements).  His efforts in developing “natural-based” medicines led to his creating disease-specific monographs in areas such as Migraine, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Depression and more, approved for Continuing Education credits for physician license renewal.

His extensive research, knowledge and expertise have also led to the formulation and manufacturing of various condition-specific nutritional supplements.  Some of these supplements and drugs are currently available to the public, others are pending release. He holds many U.S. patents with additional patents pending.

Researching and developing safer natural medicines and leading-edge solutions to combat disease keep Curt busy but he still finds time to travel throughout the United States, sharing the science behind the success of  MigreLief’s line of nutritional supplements for migraine sufferers.


CREATING MIGRELIEF – a personal note:

I understand the impact that migraines have on the life of a sufferer, their friends and loved ones.  For the past 27 years, I lived with the pain, worry and fear that migraine attacks bring on. When my wife was an adolescent, she hit her head on the windshield of the car during an automobile accident. From that day on, chronic, painful migraines were a consistent part of her life.  We spent years hoping that each migraine would not progress and lead to another trip to the emergency room for a shot of morphine and other very powerful drugs we desperately wanted to avoid.

Even the prescription drugs that my wife’s 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 medication my wife used for migraines, the more rebound headaches she would have, creating a vicious cycle of prescription drug use.  I found that unacceptable, so as a chemist and researcher I learned everything I could about migraines hoping to help my wife avoid a lifetime of merely treating the pain with side-effect prone drugs.

I formulated MigreLief® Triple Therapy with Puracol™ as a result of my research and received two United States patents for a combination of three naturally occurring ingredients that have since helped hundreds of thousands of migraine sufferers for over two decades.

I am thrilled to know that MigreLief was makes a difference in the lives of countless sufferers and I never get tired of reading the heart-warming success stories from long-time sufferers or receiving feedback from health care professionals.  It inspires all of us at Akeso Health Sciences, a family-owned company, to work diligently to inform the world of this great nutritional option.

WHEN MIGRAINES GET OUT OF CONTROL

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 3 million Americans went to emergency rooms trying to get relief for headaches or migraines. 81,000 of these people were admitted into the hospital.  1/3 of the emergency room patients and 2/3’s of the hospitalizations were due to migraines.

Women made up 75% of both the emergency room visits and hospitalizations. (To me this indicates a hormonal component to the headaches, and I suspect that the 1/3 of the emergency room visits believed to be migraines, is a very low percentage and that in reality, the percentage was probably much higher.)  Migraines were about 4 times more common in women than men.

Going by age, the most likely to make an emergency room visit were in the 18-44 year old range.

Geographically, – The Midwest and South had the highest emergency department visit rates for headache, 1,158 and 1,131 per 100,000 people. The Northeast showed 809 visits per 100,000 people and the West had 744 visits per 100,000 people. (People in the West either have fewer migraines or they just couldn’t get to the emergency room because of the traffic!)

We believe, that for most migraine sufferers, the answer to controlling your migraines and staying out of emergency rooms and hospitals, is prevention.   Visit www.migrelief.com to learn more about our #1 doctor recommended natural migraine supplement created to correct the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances common to many migraine sufferers.
