  1. My son is adamant he will not have this surgery because it stops 100% of adrenaline secretion. He thinks he needs all the adrenaline he can get so he’s able to get out of bed in the morning! He’s very motivated and is afraid that would be taken away, but actually he is too much that way and is angry and aggressive because of his paranoia. He has been in hospital the last three weeks, back on his antipsychotic, but he is still paranoid. I’m hoping that will decrease with treatment and then I will bring up the BEAM procedure again. I read your book but could you please tell me how to respond to him about the adrenaline.


    1. BEAM does not stop 100% of adrenaline secretion. It changes source of adrenaline. When adrenaline glands stop producing it, second source that we have in our brain starts making adrenaline. Which balances dopamine in the brain, and psychosis stops.
      You must understand when people are schizophrenics, they cant make beneficiary decisions for themselves, this is why family has to do something. Before something bad happens.
