BEAM Procedure – Why it Works

This procedure consists in blocking 100% of the production of Adrenaline from its source, and 20% of Noradrenaline from the adrenal marrow. Now the synthesis of Dopamine will have a new regulation; a new biochemical blueprint, and a new system of signals that causes for the shaking in Parkinson’s patients to disappear from the beginning, and the symptoms from schizophrenic patients to be eliminated.

This procedure was created by Ecuadorean Psychiatrist, Dr Jose Mackliff Hidalgo, after more than 30 years of research, and is now considered to be the most permanent solution to Parkinson and Schizophrenia available to date. The surgery consists of electrically burning the marrow in the narrow channel of the adrenal medullas which lie above the two kidneys in the body.

Adrenal Medulla glands-200

At the beginning of the decade of the 70’s, it was discovered that by increasing glucose, the aggressiveness in psychotic patients decreased. By 1974 Dr. Mackliff reviewed the results from a study by Hubell Von Vallet & Dell, in which the therapeutic effects of a drug called Clorpromazine on mental patients, were due precisely by inhibiting brain adrenaline.

By blocking the tissue in the suprarenal glands through the BEAM surgery, 100% of adrenaline, and 20% of noradrenaline, are also blocked in the blood stream and the symptoms in Parkinson and Schizophrenia disappear. Then in the brain, the glia and the hypothalamus detect the lack of these substances and their metabolisms are detected, and therefore, they take on the role of neuro-endocrine brain regulators, and start generating a new modal system, a new plasticity to the Tirosine chain; thus regulating the functions of Dopamine, Noradrenaline, and other neurotransmitters that communicate with these neurons. This way, Dopamine will be available in parts of the brain where it is only needed as in the “substantia nigra” in the case of Parkinson; and won’t be released in areas where it exists in excess, as in the “limbic zone” in the case of schizophrenia.

Why it Works

These were the results from the initial B.E.A.M surgeries done on dogs that had undergone drug-induced psychosis.

  • It may be possible that hyperglycemia prevents the release of glucoregulation hormones . Hyperglycemia prevents the release of adrenaline (epinephrine).
  • In this process, adrenaline is one of the most important hormones, because it is closely linked to the pathology of stress and monitoring of emotion. This is the only solution for the glucoregulation disorder and a new role system of H.P.A axis
  • It is easy to deduce that if the final element of the biochemical chain of tyrosine (epinephrine) is blocked, then the whole chain changes the synthesis and delivery of Dopa, dopamine, and noradrenaline. The brain takes on the role of providing the noradrenaline needed for the production of dopa and dopamine.
  • This means that if the role of epinephrine stops for eight hours of hyperglycemia with hypertonic solution, then this changes the blood homeostatic balance in the blood and brain and has an impact on the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis.
  •  On a biological level of analysis, much of the research has focused on the neuroendocrine system, particularly in the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (LHPA).

Most Ecuadorian and foreign patients seeking operations are chronic, with more than ten years of schizophrenia or Parkinson and a long history of internment in the first. These patients with the help of antipsychotics and B.E.A.M have obtained a formidable elimination of positive and negative symptoms, as well as a better quality of life that is not possible with antipsychotics alone.

In Dr. Mackliff’s experience, patients with one to three years of schizophrenia (between 14 and 18) have a spectacular improvement in about 3-6 months after the operation. These cases correspond to 10% of the cases submitted to B.E.A.M, since most come to be operated when they are fully impaired, however they too obtain the elimination of symptoms.

Every case that has undergone B.E.A.M is unique and the patients live in homes with features and different environments which can impact positively or negatively on the operated patient.


It is interesting to note that the pharmaceutical industry spends billions $ on research on anti-depressant and antipsychotic drugs, and has virtually nothing to show for it. It has all been spent on useless studies designed to minimize the adverse effects of the drugs and the cerebral changes that result from their long term use.

Dr Mackliff has self-funded his entire research for 30 years and has now had over 110 successful surgeries on people with chronic schizophrenia since 2006. He presented his work and a case study of Sergio to the World – Neuro Talks in 2015 in Hangzhou, China with positive responses and results which may lead to formalizing the research into BEAM in the future. He is scheduled to present BEAM again at the 2018 World Congress Neurotalk conference with more case studies.

  1. I am interested in more information about this procedure. My son was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia 5 years ago. He refuses to take medication.

    Does the success of this surgery decrease the longer the patient has had the disease?

    What percentage of surgeries are successful?

    What symptoms are most likely to disappear?

    Are some symptoms more resistant to treatment?


    1. Hi Carol.
      BEAM surgery eliminates all psychotic elements. That includes Schizophrenia, Bipolar or Schizo-effective disorder. As a reminder Bipolar disorder is a maniac psychosis. Schizo-effective is a combination of both psychosis types. Usually Dr. Mackliff’s patients reach full recovery from 1-3 years. That means medication free recovery 100 %. However, BEAM does not treat mental deficiency or Autism.
      People who suffer schizophrenia have positive changes right after surgery.
      Carol I can assure you, that every patient who came to Dr. Mackliff recovered, and their families are thankful to him.
      There are 4 people, who had BEAM surgery in 2018, you may contact them and ask how recovery goes. I am sure they can share their experiences. Ask them if they would speak over the phone. (Erica) (Zuly, Miguel) (Olga)

      1. Thank you for your response. A few more questions…

        When you say it does not treat mental deficiency, does that include the disorganization often seen in schizophrenia? That is a prominent symptom with our son and the main reason he is unemployable and unproductive.

        I understand Dr. Matcliff has been doing this procedure for over 10 years. What is the long term prognosis? Are his first patients still symptom free?

        Are there doctors in other parts of the world (Canada for instance!) that are training to perform this surgery?

      3. Hello Carol, BEAM cures the psychotic elements of the disease schizophrenia including anxiety, cognitive deficiencies, disorganized thinking. Disorganization is a result of the disease. You have to look at the whole illness, not segment particular characteristics. Every thing works better after BEAM surgery as you will learn by contacting four people who had the surgery in 2018 (See Blog Post archives on schizophrenia You have to have the faith to know that BEAM improves lives with little to no side affects. Please read my book on


  2. Hi Carol.
    No it is not disorganization. Dr. Mackliff had patients, who were born with mental deficiency, or any other inborn mental disorders. With respect to their families, and
    sadly, sometimes they do develop psychoses, which worsens their mental state. After BEAM surgery, psychosis disappears, but mental deficiency can not be treated by BEAM procedure.
    Surgery is done for life, psychosis does not return. Dr.Mackliff’s. Patients do reach full recovery. And they do not suffer any side-effects after the surgery,.
    Dr.Mackliff developed this procedure himself. He put over 30 years of self funded work, in to his research. Which eventually turned in to successful procedure, and was approved by Government in Ecuador.

  3. In 2011 Anabel, had BEAM surgery. It will be almost 8 years.
    Her phone number is 720-339-8027.
    I can assure you she is healthy, and fully recovered.
    Please contact her.
    Thank you.
