About Curt Hendrix

Curt Hendrix, M.S, C.C.N, C.N.S, is a multi-disciplined scientist  whose research and teachings focus on improving health and fighting the war on aging at the cellular level.  His 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 working of the human body.  Curt is considered a foremost authority on nutritional applications of herbal medicine (based on scientific application). 
Curt spent two years in a physical chemistry PhD. program at the City University of New York   He then obtained a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. He is also board certified both in clinical nutrition (CCN) and as a nutrition specialist (CNS) from the American Academy of Nutrition.
Curt has spent the last 20 years researching and archiving the potential benefits, effects and mechanism of literally thousands of naturally occurring compounds (plants, amino acids, vitamin/mineral 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 others approved for continuing education credits for physician license renewal.  
Involved in many cutting edge research projects, Curt is also Chief Science Officer for a privately held, specialty pharmaceutical company, Concourse Health Sciences L.L.C. At Concourse, he is in charge of formulation and development of new drugs derived or based upon naturally occurring compounds.  He is currently working on “safer-medicines” for; cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, endometriosis, hepatic encephalopathy, weight loss, diabetes and interstitial cystitis.
His extensive research, knowledge and expertise has also led to the formulation and manufacturing of various all natural supplements for specific medical conditions where current Rx and OTC medicines are sub-optimal.  Some of these supplements and drugs are currently available to the public, others pending release. He holds many U.S. patents with additional patents pending.   His supplements have been proven effective by extensive research and monitored by an excellent quality control system. 
Curt has spent many years of his studies and research trying to identify a “unifying” theory of aging and the chronic degenerative disease with which it is associated, Alzheimer’s.  In 2006 he was named as the principal investigator of an NIH sponsored grant to study the effects of a combination drug of naturally occurring compounds on the progression of Alzheimer’s in transgenic mice. This research was done in conjunction with the University of California, Irvine. The results of this study, soon to be published, demonstrated the ability of the combination to completely arrest the cognitive decline normally seen in this mouse model.  In addition, the combination drug significantly decreased the pathophysiology normally seen in the brains of these mice. In fact, normal mice that received the combination were “smarter” than normal mice who were just given regular mouse chow. 
In 2009 he again has been appointed principal scientific investigator of an NIH (Nat’l Institute of Health) sponsored grant to continue his ground breaking work on arresting the development of Alzheimer’s Disease. 
His extensive research, knowledge and expertise has also led to the creation of various supplements and drugs some of which are currently available to the public…others pending release. He holds many U.S. patents with additional patents pending.  Among other products, Curt is recognized for his highly successful advanced patented herbal supplement for migraine prevention —“MigreLief” (www.MigreLief.com).
While Curt continues with research and development of safer more effective medicines and supplements, he will be imparting his knowledge and expertise via social networking including his personal blog site, health news letters and twitter.   His teachings will focus on fighting the war on aging at the cellular level while maintaining optimal health.
Curt Hendrix is CEO of Akeso Health Sciences, L.L.C.
