How to contact Dr. Mackliff & Schedule BEAM Surgery

I receive a lot of emails from people with schizophrenia or parents with children with schizophrenia who want to know more about the BEAM surgery and how to contact Dr. Mackliff in Ecuador.

The BEAM surgery was developed by Dr. Jose R. Mackliff in Ecuador and patented as an investigative treatment for schizophrenia and Parkinson diseases in 2007. Since 2007, 200 patients with schizophrenia have had the BEAM surgery with successful elimination of the symptoms of schizophrenia, and reduction and elimination of antipsychotic drug treatment.

The BEAM surgery only costs $8,000 in cash and $2,000 for the hospital stay which can be paid with a credit card. The patient and his/her caretaker must stay in Guayaquil at a hotel near the hospital for a minimum of 10 days for followup care.  The patient will be seen by Dr. Mackliff regularly and prescribed an antipsychotic medicine at a safer type and lower dosage than they were on before. The patient should remain on this dosage of medicine for one year and may taper off the amount of medicine with recommendations from Dr. Mackliff. 

Patients and family members should contact Dr. Mackliff directly by writing in English to drmackliff@beamprocedure.com to answer questions about the patient and the surgery. You can also write to me with any questions or problems you experience while going through this process. suzanne@schizophrenia-solution.org. Surgeries can normally be scheduled within a month of request.

The best way to get a thorough understanding of the BEAM Procedure, how it works and its success in eliminating the symptoms of schizophrenia is to read the book, A Life Worth Living – Schizophrenia Alternative Treatment, which I wrote and was co-authored by Dr. Mackliff and to watch the documentary film with three case study videos filmed after BEAM surgery by Dr. Mackliff in Ecuador, A Life Worth Living – Solution to Schizophrenia. Dr. Mackliff’s website, beamprocedure.com has scientific information about his treatment and a link to his medical book in English, Schizophrenia and Parkinson Surgery.

On my website are blog posts with recent patient testimonials (January 2018) and case study videos. 

 

Interview with Ecuadorian BEAM Patient, May 2015, five years after BEAM

Film-Narcissa

Interview with Narcisa by Suzanne Patterson

This is a clear message from a woman who had 25 years of schizophrenia before submitting to BEAM surgery. The interview took place five years after having BEAM surgery. It clearly conveys what a person with schizophrenia can expect, recovering after BEAM.

Hello, my name is Narcisa Valencia.  I am 45 years old, and I live here, in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

 (For how long did you have the Schizophrenia symptoms, before having the BEAM procedure?)

I started to show schizophrenia symptoms since I was in school around 15-18 years-old.

(What were your symptoms when you had Schizophrenia?)

I came to have BEAM procedure when I was 40 years old, so it has been five years since my surgery, and my symptoms, they always were there, I had perceptions, I thought that my family didn’t love me, I was totally out of focus, I couldn’t concentrate in my studies, I was a very good student , but after all this started, I couldn’t  sleep, I had problems to establish relationships, and I stopped going out of the house. My siblings always have been there for me, but I always was rejecting them, and after the surgery this has been changing, I even lost weight; I weighed 300 pounds before the surgery. The surgery has helped me a lot, and it’s not just me who says it; my family and my friends can confirm it. I do sales for a living, my sister prepares sandwiches and I am the one who sells them, and the clients tell me: “Narcisa, I don’t know what you are doing, but I see you getting better and better every day”. To tell you the truth I am not aware of this, but I have been getting a lot better.

(How old were you when you first start showing the symptoms?)

I started showing the symptoms when I was around 15 -18 years old.

Were you treated by other Psychiatrists during this time?)

Yes, I went to see several doctors, some of them very prominent doctors, from here in Guayaquil and Quito, and when I was 40 years old my family was giving up on me, labeling me as a mental sick person, because I had a very serious crisis. Before this, I had another crisis  at the age of 19 years, at that time I went to see Dr. Salvador Peralta, one of the Psychiatrist here in Ecuador, he ordered me to be admitted at the Hospital, so all my family members pull together some money and Dr. Peralta tried several therapies including hypnosis. So, I felt better, I got out, started going to College and everything was fine, in 1997 we moved from the house we rented for almost 20 years, but in the new place I felt that the neighbors didn’t want me, I wasn’t feeling well, and I had another crisis, my family took me again to Dr. Peralta.

(Were you in Antipsychotic treatment also?)

I was taking risperidone.

(How did you first find out about Dr Macliff?)

I knew about Dr Mackliff, because my family was always looking for the best doctor, when we were young we all came to see a Naturopath doctor in Quito, we traveled there, the same happened with Dr Macliff, my whole family has been treated by him, even this sister here with me, He has helped her with her Diabetics, with some vaccines that he has developed. I thank him very much, I thank my family.

(After you had the surgery, what changes did you notice in yourself?)

After the surgery, I started getting better, first of all I can sleep now, before, I was in my bed unable to sleep at all, even though the next day I had to do my daily activities and I was feeling terrible. Now, I sleep like a baby, my sister sometimes asked me if I heard anything during the night, but no, my sleep is very comforting now. Another thing I feel after the surgery is this sensation of security, before I would tremble at the least thing, now I feel more secure in myself. I feel the love of my family, I can see how they worry about me, I am more conscious of what is happening around me, before I was like as if I wasn’t here, just living without living.

THE SISTER:

Changes I saw in my sister, well, before the surgery she had a very serious crisis, in which she attacked one of our sisters, and it was right at that moment that we in our family realized how big our problem with Narcisa was, and my siblings went to visit the two best Psychiatrists in Guayaquil, both had already treated her previously and both told us that She was hopeless, that she had no remedy and that they recommended the best thing to do with her was to send her to the Psychiatric Hospital and keep her there until her death. Their only solution was to keep her sedated almost 100% of the time, and that we would have to accept these facts and come to visit her just on the Visitation Day, Sundays. 

SO, after this terrible crisis we all had to move to my brother’s bedroom, inside the same house, because of her attacks, she tried to attack our parents too, and we were afraid that she would attack us all too. 

So we were all in my brother’s bedroom, and then my brother was watching a TV program called “Al Rojo Vivo” where they say: “There is a solution for schizophrenia, and it is in Guayaquil”, so my brother says, Let’s go!, let’s see this Doctor, we have nothing to lose, since the other doctors gave us no hope or solution for her situation. So, my parents and my siblings all came to see him and he told us about the surgery, at first this seemed illogical to us, didn’t make any sense to us, considering what the other doctors had told us before. Anyway, she came to see him and that very night after her first visit to his office, she looked peaceful, so we started seeing some hope to her problem, and after we raised all the money, we came to ask Dr Macliff to do the procedure.

He made the first interviews with her and after the third day we noticed how calm she looked, in the first 15 days after the surgery, while she was still in recovery, we saw how she could tolerate my other sister. One of the events that I remember, one event that gave us all a light of hope, was on December 24 of 2012, the same year of the procedure, she started to get ready to go out for Christmas Eve Dinner, we spent several years without seeing her at these dinners, because she never wanted to do it, and she was very happy at the dinner, sharing, talking, smiling with our parents, with our siblings, and since then everything has been evolving for good, not suddenly because it’s not like from one day to the other everything is going to change, it’s a process, but she is really living.

This procedure gives life to whoever has Schizophrenia, and not just only for the patient, but for the whole family of the sick person, because this disease affects everybody in a family, because during the crisis everybody gets affected, one way or the other. That’s why I dare to say to everyone watching this interview, and having someone in his family with this disease, not to wait that long to make the decision to do this procedure. Thank You.

(Can you tell me how your daily life is now?)

Well, I am adapting myself to the changes easily, right now, after the earthquake we had here in Pedernales Ecuador, we have family there, we are a little afraid, but besides that I want to continue studying, I finished the career of Psychology in Education, and I would like to study Medicine, I have been recompiling books, and a lot of things related to Medicine. I do sales every day, since I was in College one of my classmates told me I had a gift to do it, I think so it is, my dad and some other relatives had done it for a living, so maybe it’s in my blood. My sister here, prepares pizza or meals, and I go out to sell these, it’s a little complicated nowadays due to the delinquency; people trust me, you know, and they buy from me, for now that’s what I do, I sell from house to house to hospitals, to malls, close to my house, because I don’t like to take public transportation alone, I don’t like to be among too much people by myself, so, every day, I get ready, get out, make my sales, come back home and give my sisters the money.

(Do you have any message to young people with Schizophrenia in the US?)

It’s hard!, it’s very hard!. Because I felt that I was born again. My life started at the age of 40 years old, because, before that I was very bad, very bad, and even though all this I finished College, got my degree, I wasn’t a burden for my family, but I wasn’t ok. Now it’s a 360-degree change, a change for good.

(Do you any message for the familiess of young people with Schizophrenia?)

Sister – Angel:

My message for anybody watching this video, as I said before, don’t wait too long to embrace this solution, a solution of life, because this solution saves not just the patient’s life, but the entire family’s life, this disease affects not just the patient, or the family, the friends also. So, I hope that this solution, not so far from now, can be performed in many Hospital around the world, and that young men being prepared to become psychiatrists, analyze this procedure, its pros and cons, and that they realize it is the best solution.

We have proved it with my sister, after 25 years with Schizophrenia, a case diagnosed as hopeless by two prominent doctors, and now she has said in her own words, she has been born again. We can give this gift to someone that we love, so he can live also, not just lying there in a bed, taking a medicine that just keep him sleeping almost 100% of the time, like a living dead. No, after this surgery, they live again, they have dreams again, projects, like my sister and I, we have projects together, I can count on her, and she has her own personal projects. So yes, there’s a way, there’s an after, there’s life for them.

 

 

Is BEAM Procedure a Cure for Schizophrenia?

Dr. Jose R. Mackliff, patented owner of BEAM Procedure

The BEAM Procedure, developed by Dr. Jose R. Mackliff, Ecuadorian psychiatrist and researcher, is a surgery done on the adrenal medulla glands which has been successfully done on 140 people with schizophrenia from one to 22 years since 2006.

BEAM or bi-lateral electro-coagulation of adrenal medulla eliminates the symptoms of schizophrenia by balancing the hormones in the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Thyroid-Adrenal (HPTA) axis in the brain stem, causing the brain to regulate cerebral dopamine. Schizophrenia is a disease caused by a disruption in the gluco-regulatory system, resulting in unregulated cerebral dopamine.

Dr. Mackliff developed BEAM over 30 years of self-funded research. He was the schizophrenic ward director at Sala San Jose at Lorenzo Ponce Hospital from 1973 to 1986. It was there that he watched his patients for 13 years who never improved and became more apathetic and stressed with additional chronic diseases with each year. The notorious failure of antipsychotic drugs to relieve, even temporarily, the symptoms of schizophrenia motivated him to study the various autonomic questions that arose about the metabolism behind this disease.

Why isn’t BEAM Procedure Known Throughout the World?

BEAM has been presented at three international neuroscience conferences, World Congress of BITs Neurotalk, in 2011, 2015 and again in May 2018. Although recognized as a radically new and promising treatment for schizophrenia, it has not yet been recommended for formalized research funded by international health agencies.

Because the need for antipsychotic drugs is reduced and eventually eliminated after BEAM surgery, BEAM will never be recommended for further research by psychiatric associations around the world, nor by the drug companies that exploit and profit from the vulnerability of people with schizophrenia.

Patients and their families come to BEAM after hearing the testimonials of those who have been cured of schizophrenia after having the BEAM surgery.

It is only the patients and families who have been cured of schizophrenia from the BEAM surgery who can organize and gain force to make the BEAM Procedure known to their medical communities.

It seems it is not Dr. Mackliff’s role to make his treatment known and accepted by the scientific communities around the world in his lifetime.

Blog’s Author

The author of this blog is Suzanne Ayer Patterson, the mother of a 20-year-old boy who was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder in 2013 and took his life in 2014 after being put on a high dosage of Seroquel, an antipsychotic, for one year by a respected psychiatrist in Marin County. Later, Suzanne would find out that this doctor had been receiving payments for prescribing Seroquel from the drug manufacturer for more than ten years. This is common practice in psychiatry in the United States.

As a way to direct the anguish and suffering from her son’s tragic death, Suzanne began to research schizophrenia, its treatment and the BEAM Procedure for schizophrenia which she had heard about while her son was still alive. She worked actively to make this information and the BEAM surgery known to families around the world with children with schizophrenia. A book co-authored by Dr. Mackliff, a blog and website, and a documentary film resulted from three and 1/2 years of diligent efforts.

This worthwhile work directly resulted in two young American men, age 17 and 28, having the BEAM surgery in Ecuador in January of 2018. They both are now cured of schizophrenia, just three months later, and take no antipsychotic medication. Testimonials from the mothers and a video two days after surgery for one of the boys, can be viewed on schizophreniasolution.org.

People seeking an understanding of BEAM and how it works should read my book, A Life Worth Living – Schizophrenia Alternative Treatment and watch my documentary film,
A Life Worth Living – Solution to Schizophrenia.  Additional scientific knowledge and case studies can be read in Dr. Mackliff’s medical book in English, Schizophrenia and Parkinson Surgery available on Amazon. Visit the BEAM Procedure website: beamprocedure.com

17-Year old boy with Schizophrenia who underwent BEAM Surgery in January 2018 Cured of Schizophrenia

This letter came from a mom of a 17-year-old boy with schizophrenia who underwent BEAM surgery in January of 2018.  Dr. Mackliff has said that the BEAM cases between the ages of 14 and 17 heal very quickly from schizophrenia.

Hi Suzanne

    It’s been 3 months since we had a surgery. I have very good news.

As Dr. Mackliff advised we continued with medication at reduced amount for 2 months, and then we stopped. Psychosis did not return; its been a full month since we have not used medication, and there are no symptoms.

I can state with confidence that B.E.A.M surgery worked, it freed us from schizophrenia. 

    Please share this experience with others.

If anyone has any questions, I will be glad to answer,

And please share this email. erica-77@live.com 

Valentine’s Day Message for those Struggling with Schizophrenia

hope-2

My Dear Friend,

Whoever you are and wherever you are in the process of dealing with the disease schizophrenia, you are doing the best you can. You must forgive yourself for everything, and always begin anew. 

This morning I woke up with a sense of failure, because I had failed in a work task I had been given to complete. I then realized the need to drop this negative, futile emotion, and move on. This happened to me when my son took his life from schizophrenia 3 1/2 years ago. It has taken me this period of time to resolve all of the issues with schizophrenia that I had experienced, and to find a solution that could help others.

Wherever you are in the process of working through the difficulties of living with someone with schizophrenia or trying to help a loved one with this disease, you must focus on the immediate issues on hand. From my experience now of visiting NAMI Family Support meetings and hearing people’s stories, this can be homelessness, drug addiction, poor hygiene, lack of good support and information from the medical doctors and psychiatrists, the unsafe dosages and over-prescribing of poor choices of medicines, non-compliance with taking these medicines, etc. NAMI offers resources for coping with schizophrenia.

As a parallel and complementary effort, educate yourself about the BEAM surgery offered in Ecuador and contact Dr. Jose R. Mackliff to hear his recommendations about antipsychotic medicines to help stabilize your person’s condition and actions for reducing stress in their lives. All of the recommendations given to us by Dr. Mackliff, when my son was newly diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder, proved to be correct and would have saved his life if we had followed them. You can contact Dr. Mackliff in English by email at drmackiff@beamprocedure.com

Finding a solution to schizophrenia is a step-by-step process. You must open your hearts to trusting that help which comes from a true and scientifically established place, as well as pure motive based on the love of his patients and faith in God.  Clearly see the contrast with treatments based mostly on profits, and the promotion of non-tested drugs at the dosages and time duration for which they are prescribed. Many psychiatrists receive payments from the pharmaceutical companies for prescribing these untested drugs. (Open Payments database). You must open your hearts to truly listening and responding to the anguish of your loved ones, and search for a better solution.

BEAM Procedure is a proven solution and the only solution that can eliminate the symptoms of schizophrenia and restore lives worth living. This message only sounds extreme because of our conditioning to believe that schizophrenia is an incurable disease, and that antipsychotic drugs for life are our only option. Read my book, a Life Worth Living – Schizophrenia Alternative Treatment , co-authored by Dr. Mackliff for practical information on all aspects of schizophrenia and its treatment. One thing that is clear is that the current methods of treatment are not working!!!!

Cure for Schizophrenia

CURE & CAUSE FOR SCHIZOPHRENIA
BEAM Procedure, Bi-lateral Electrocoagulation of Adrenal Medulla

 

LOS ANGELES, CA – 01/30/2018

A cure for schizophrenia has been found by Dr. Jose R. Mackliff, Ecuadorian psychiatrist and researcher, after 30 years of self-funded research. Beginning in 2006, over 110 patients have eliminated their symptoms of schizophrenia and resumed normal lives after having the BEAM surgery for schizophrenia. These were patients with between one and 22 years of schizophrenia, before having the BEAM treatment.

This marvelous treatment eliminates the production of blood adrenaline and causes the brain to compensate by producing sufficient nor-adrenaline to take on the role of regulating cerebral dopamine.

In patients diagnosed with schizophrenia, adrenaline is released in a delayed fashion, causing daily decreased levels of glycaemia; and causing attacks of uncontrollable anger, hallucinations and highly aggressive behavior.

This surgical procedure, invented by Dr. Mackliff, makes it possible to regulate cerebral dopamine in schizophrenics. When this occurs, the symptoms of schizophrenia disappear almost immediately.

A documentary film, A Life Worth Living – Solution to Schizophrenia produced by Suzanne Ayer Patterson, is now released on YouTube. This 32-minute documentary documents the BEAM Procedure for schizophrenia, the BEAM doctors, how the BEAM surgery works and three case study films filmed by Dr. Mackliff in Ecuador which clearly demonstrate the elimination of the symptoms of schizophrenia 72 hours after surgery and the return to a normal life one and ½ years after surgery.

American Mother’s BEAM Surgery Testimonial for Surgery in January 2018

hope-2

I want to dedicate this letter to those people who are considering to do B.E.A.M surgery. 

 

     Our family member had this surgery on January 11, 2018, and we can state with confidence that we saw improvements within 12 hours after the surgery. Dr. Mackliff is an amazing doctor, one who knows how to treat his patients, and we will never regret that we trusted him.  

     Our family member with schizophrenia and many other issues, used to refuse to eat apples, cut his hair, watch TV. Also, he suffered “black outs” when he was leaving home, and did not know where he was going or how to get back home. After the surgery, he woke up and his first words were, “I can create my thoughts now, they come naturally very fast. I can remember them and understand them. He also started eating apples, watching TV, and got a haircut. Those improvements we observed 12 hours after the surgery. 

      I want to say, that full recovery does not come right away, every patient has a different time frame. But they do come, BEAM surgery helps everyone with schizophrenia. We still have time ahead to recover fully; however, we can see progress every day.  

 

I will be glad to share my experience, and if anyone has any questions you are welcome to contact me through my email.

Erica-77@live.com 

 

Thank you so much Dr. Mackliff 

Email from 2nd Mother of Son who had BEAM surgery (January 11, 2018)

Two Days after Surgery

Suzanne, it is a miracle.

Dr. Macliff is a genius, and amazing doctor.

My son keeps changing, he talks to me now, he does. Before it was impossible to have as conversation with him. Looks like life has returned to him. He also started watching TV. Even though it is in Spanish, he still watches it. Before we could not make him.

I just can’t contain my happiness.

Thank you.
