What is Dr. Lanny Up To?

The Only Way to Real Change

It is recorded in ancient writings that the “evil being” is the father or lies. In other words the person of the devil originates and propagates all lies.

Knowing that and recognizing the abundance of lies and liars in our society and even our personal lives, those of us that are Christians have a means to change this state of affairs.

We have the authority to speak against every lying demon spirit that is speaking and working through people here on earth to be bound and made of no effect in Jesus mighty name. We can look at the person who is speaking the untruth but we are no speaking to them, but to the spirit speaking through them. Jesus showed that model when he looked at Peter but spoke to the devil saying “Get thee behind me Satan”.

I am also saying it is not a matter of a prayer but speaking out loud to the demon, just as Jesus spoke to the unfruitful fig tree, cursed its non productivity and is withered. Speak to the mountain of lies and bind them.

What am I up to?

“Not always this laid back”
“Not always this laid back”

Thank you for asking.  A blog seemed like the best way to answer this question on a regular basis. In addition, this blog provides a means for me to keep track in an organized fashion of what I am up to.

The information will be in one place for recording memoirs and historical events. It will be a place to document the present and consider the future.


I expect to regularly make entries concerning various categories: physician/surgeon; medical research and development; the golf adventures and Life. You may see a recent post or follow the topic that might interest you.

Let me know what you think as this blog will becomes my “Lectronic Legacy” in what ever time remains.

Answering the frequently asked question (FAQ) of what am I up to now?

A BLOG seemed the best and most efficient means of answering the FAQs on a regular basis.  It might be said that I wear multiple hats or have many interests.  Discovery in medicine will always be the main topic.  However there are other categories; Golf Adventures, Inventions, and some Christian writings.  Hopefully the BLOG will be a format to tell what I am up to in each of these main endeavors.  It seems almost daily there are interesting events; at least to me. Perhaps the events may be of interest to others.

I want to make it clear, I am not retired.  Retirement it is bad for one’s health.  I concluded my clinical practice in 1995, but work regularly in these various endeavors.  I do not see anywhere in the Bible where retirement is to be desired or realized.  I have told my daughters that I will not be speaking at my retirement party.

From time to time I will answer publicly herein those questions that recently surfaced and may be of general interest.  I will not be recording what I had on my hot dog at a ball game, let alone focus on mundane events.

I trust I will accomplish the intended goal of answering “What am I up to?”

Insight to God’s requests of you.

What God is asking of you in the natural should be an introduction to what He wants to do for you spiritually.

The basis is John 4:7-10.  When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])

10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

New Research

Weight loss medications are all the rage today.  They are usually given by injection and have side effects including a rare form of blindness.  Not surprisingly, all have the caveat that the treatment must be accompanied by diet and exercise.

I am exploring a safe and effective while inexpensive means of rendering the same health benefit; lowering blood sugar and weight loss.

I have been studying a food substance protocatechuic acid (PCA) for near 20 years.  I have multiple US patents related to its various health benefits.

It is possible that protocatechuic acid taken as a food supplement may have a role in control of type II diabetes and/or weight loss.

There is a basis for this in that it is in the literature that polyphenols in general may have a role in treatment of type II diabetes and weight loss.  Protocatechuic acid is chemically a polyphenol.

Therefore, I have launched a randomized double blinded controlled human study to confirm or refute what is in the literature and explore the potential new health benefits to taking daily PCA.

We are asking the question of what effect will dose related oral PCA have on the human blood clotting, blood glucose, body weight, and biomarkers for immunity (CXLX9) and weight control protein glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1)*.

* Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone made in the small intestine usually following eating.  GLP-1 is a 30 amino acid peptide that has the following effects.

  • Increases insulin release from the pancreas which decreases blood sugar.
  • Blocks the glucagon hormone which effect otherwise would raise your blood sugar.  GLP-1 prevents glucose entering the blood stream.
  • Slows the stomach emptying which therefore slows down the release of sugar into the blood stream.
  • Gives a sense of satisfaction that one is full after eating.  This is called a satiety factor.

New Patents issued

11,751,799 B1 September 12, 2023. Methods and Systems for diagnosing Cognitive Conditions.

I am seeking studies at Duke, Vanderbilt and Michigan State to find the few predictive tests to make and manage the diagnosis of sport concussion. We are using two new testing modalities I learned during my time teaching on the PCA tour; tactile edge orientation processing and micro electrical mechanical sensors.

Should be able to transport to traumatic brain injury and senile demenia.

11,759,443 B2 September 19, 2023 Methods and compositions including protocatechuic acid crystals for the treatment of respiratory syncytial virus.  

This is one of many disease caused by encoated virus. I would need a partner to clinically develop.

The History of My Special Insights

Today I recalled the first time I had a Dairy Queen cone. It was so good I returned to the counter and told them so, and encouraged them that this could be a national chain. It already was.

The other one was my first time in New Orleans where I recognized they named streets after songs. Soon after I realized it was the other way around.

Not so smart.

Bring attention to Book I wrote

I was impressed to bring your attention to a book I wrote you may download for a gift to this ministry of any amount. Since zero is an amount you could enter this as one of my friends did by mistake. It was sent since zero is an amount.
