I mentioned my own experience with the effect of MePA on headaches and migraines only tangentially in Aging: Cause and Cure:

My own mortality had first begun to register with me when I had been forced to get prescription glasses early in my forties. …

Subsequent years brought significant loss of hearing, hypothyroidism, worsening migraine headaches, and more. …

Coming off of twice-per-week 60 ml infusions of Hizentra® complicates the question of what changes are due to MePA. For example, headaches have definitely decreased, but then headaches are a side effect of Hizentra®.

Other early users of Dr. Aardsma’s Vitamin MePA Dietary Supplement have now experienced a reduction in headaches and migraines, confirming that this appears to be yet another rapidly-realized health benefit of the vitamin.

My Own Experience

My recent experience with headaches and migraines stands in stark contrast to what I was experiencing immediately prior to beginning to supplement MePA.

When I was young, headaches were few, and I could count on a night’s sleep to completely cure a headache. As the years passed, I became increasingly susceptible to headaches, and my body became less and less able to cope with them. If I went to sleep with a headache, for example, it would still be with me when I awoke the next morning.

My earliest recollection of a severe headache goes back to my mid thirties. By my mid forties, I was experiencing occasional migraines. All of this was compounded in my mid fifties by treatments for CIDP, of which headaches were a side effect.

Immediately before I started on MePA, when I was nearly 61, I was subject to headaches on a fairly regular basis. These would develop into full-blown, excruciatingly painful migraines if I failed to intervene.

I had learned to take action against headaches as soon as I noticed one beginning. I would take two, extra-strength, over-the-counter pain relievers to knock out the headache before it had a chance to get going. The frequency of this corrective/preventative action had increased to an average of roughly once per two weeks. I kept a supply of pain pills in my office, in my vehicle, and near my bed.

This all changed for the better when I began supplementing my diet with vitamin MePA over two years ago. The frequency of headaches rapidly declined. At present, I honestly cannot remember the last time I had to take pain reliever pills for incipient migraine—it was many, many months ago.

Confirming Evidence

My son-in-law, Steve, has also experienced a reduced frequency of headaches since beginning to use Dr. Aardsma’s Vitamin MePA Dietary Supplement.

Steve has had frequent headaches for over 10 years. He would take Advil about once or twice a week to help with the headache pain that seemed to come from working at his desk for long hours. Since starting vitamin MePA, he has not had to buy any more Advil. He has rarely had any headaches for the past few months.

My brother, Allen, also reports fewer headaches since beginning Dr. Aardsma’s Vitamin MePA Dietary Supplement.

Is MePA responsible for my having almost no “pinched-nerve” headaches lately, or not? I used to be able to count on having about one per month.

I was especially interested in the case of Joe, who completed a Master of Science degree under me several decades ago.

Joe, as a then young man, had been subject to severe migraines. He has kept in contact over the years. When he learned of the discovery of vitamin MePA, he requested a bottle of Dr. Aardsma’s Vitamin MePA Dietary Supplement and began using it toward the end of 2017.

I wondered, as I was preparing this web page, whether MePA had made a difference to his migraines. When I wrote asking about this, Joe replied:

I have not had a migraine since I started taking MePA. I did have at least two migraines in the first half of 2017.


Multiple individuals have experienced a reduction in headaches and migraines once they have begun using Dr. Aardsma’s Vitamin MePA Dietary Supplement. The conclusion seems warranted, even at this early stage of testing the vitamin, that relief from headaches and migrains is another rapidly-realized benefit of MePA.

Looked at the other way around, this conclusion says that headaches and migraines are another symptom of vitamin MePA deficiency disease. As with all symptoms of this deadly “aging” disease, relief requires only suitable supplementation of the diet with vitamin MePA.
