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.

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.

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.


Discerning Narratives

10/25/2021: Discerning Narratives: Narratives are common to American life disguising the facts or truth. Therefore, narratives must be recognized and recognized for what they are. This exercise requires careful discernment and examination. Independent of the topic the following is true.

A narrative as commonly used today is a concept yet to be examined but must be put into practice. They are typically based upon presumption intended to be enforced or put into practice.

The dictionary definition of narrative is: noun; a spoken or written account of connected events; a story; an account, tale, chronicle, portrayal, rehearsal.

I particularly like the synonym of “rehearsal”. The “rehearsal” moniker says the ideas are without credible foundation and therefore should not be ready for prime time. A narrative is typically proposed as in the best interest of those it would affect. The advocates of a narrative must know it does not make sense and without foundation, yet advancing the narrative as though based on established evidence which of course is absent. That is the reason a narrative is put forth as an edict without accepting a critique or challenge. These factors should expose a narrative.

A narrative is not even a hypothesis. The hypothesis definition is: noun; a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation; theory, theorem, thesis, conjecture, supposition, speculation, assumption, presumption, notion and or a contention.

In philosophy a proposition is made as a basis for reasoning, without any assumption of its truth.

In science, the hypothesis is an idea that proposes a tentative explanation about a phenomenon or a narrow set of phenomena observed in the natural world. The notion of the scientific hypothesis as both falsifiable and testable was advanced in the mid-20th century by Austrian-born British philosopher Karl Popper.

Let us consider narratives at best a hypothesis. Let us be kind to those proposing a narrative and ask them to consider their proposal nothing more than a hypothesis, a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation.

Helping India

“May 5th, 2021
To Whom This May Concern:
My Name is Jacqueline Nguyen, Pharm.D and I am the CFO of QYK Brands, a US manufacturer of infection prevention products based in California. I am reaching out to you to bring some attention to our Mission to Help India.

With the explosion of COVID-19 infections in India over the past few days, we at QYK Brands initially pledged to donate 2 million units ($10 MILLION in value) of our much needed disinfectant wipes approved to kill the COVID-19 virus. Sadly we had a problem fulfilling that pledge as we lacked the means to transport our products to India. At that point we reached out to our local ABC News affiliate, and they featured our ask for help. (ABC7 News Article Link)

What followed after the coverage is quite an amazing story of humanity and an evidence of the power of the news media. Following the news coverage, several companies reached out to us and pledged what they were able to donate on their part, from 2 Million medical gowns to 2 Million N95 respirators and even oxygen concentration systems. So far, we are finalizing two cargo planes that have been donated to carry all these products to India and distribute them to everyone in need, but we need more.

This highlights not just the power and the positive presence of the news media, but also how everyone comes together in a humanitarian crisis to help in any way they can.
With a worsening level of crisis through a second wave in India right now which has even impacted our immediate family, we have taken it upon ourselves to do more and we have increased our donation by 10 Million Units of dry wipes.

With this in mind we want to make a request to individuals, businesses and US government agencies to help join in the effort with QYK to make the finished products and step up to help India and to do that we need your help to spread the message. So far only LARGE corporations have been extending a helping hand to India but with the proper media outreach, millions of SMALL businesses, individuals, non-profit organizations or the US government can surpass those donations.
We know of many companies and individuals who entered into the PPE business at the onset of the pandemic due to the severe shortage of PPE supplies. At that time thousands of businesses both small and large, sprung into action and began sourcing PPE products to supply to hospitals and the government. This led to the PPE market getting oversaturated with products and currently there are countless businesses and hospitals sitting on VAST amounts of unused PPE”

“which can help India significantly. We know that with your call for help those businesses and hospitals will have the heart to help and would gladly donate their products and supplies.
What India still needs right now are:
● Oxygen concentrators
● Portable Oxygen Tanks
● PPE like medical gowns and coveralls
● Disinfection & Infection prevention products
● Medicines (Basic medicines are being sold in the Black market for 10 to 100x the actual price)
● Portable Beds
● And the most important thing of all is we need Cargo Planes to transport all these supplies to India as quickly as possible.
We are hopefully nearing the end of the pandemic in the US, but the situation in India is extremely scary and hundreds of lives are being lost every hour. The gravity of the situation is massively under reported and people over there NEED IMMEDIATE HELP!!!
The Indian Government is doing as much as they can to help but we must all collectively do our part and provide as much assistance as possible for the sake of humanity!!!
In response to the COVID-19 crisis in India we have launched We humbly request individuals and corporations to visit the site and donate whatever they can. Their 100% generous donations will go to help India and will most definitely lead to lives being saved.”
