Cure 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


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. 


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.

Letter from Zuly, after son Miguel’s Surgery on January 10th, 2018


Hello Suzanne,

I wanted to let you know how happy we are after Miguel’s surgery, this is a miracle. My son is completely different right after the BEAM procedure  He told me he feels so different without anxiety and very calmed down. He mentioned he sees the world very different. He also told me he wants to return to the university and start a new life. Erika is so surprised by my son’s change, she saw him completely normal. I notice he talks normal not like before as a robot.
Dr. Jose Mackliff is an angel changing the future of many people who suffer schizophrenia and also their families affected by that. Thank you so much for  all your support.
Best regards,

Schizophrenia Solution and Patient Case Study films are saving Lives


Suzanne with Mom with Son with Schizophrenia

We no longer need to cringe when the subject of schizophrenia is brought up in a conversation. It is no longer a death sentence or worse, a life sentence to a regime of antipsychotic drugs. 112 people have freed themselves, after educating themselves about BEAM and the cause of schizophrenia, and after consulting with Dr. Mackliff in Ecuador , have scheduled the surgery for their loved ones.

This is not a result of blind faith, but rather a result of their education about a solution for schizophrenia and about the harmful effects of antipsychotic drug treatment, especially for life.

Dr. Mackliff recommended to me that we postpone my son’s entry into the university by one year and to bring him to Ecuador immediately for the surgery. He said, “Things change very quickly with schizophrenia, and what is possible today may not be possible later. He was right. We did not follow his recommendations, and my son committed suicide three months after leaving the university after attending for one quarter and receiving straight A’s.

You should know that BEAM Procedure for schizophrenia is the only solution for schizophrenia that eliminates the symptoms of schizophrenia and in many cases, restores normal lives. Visit and watch the BEAM Patient case study videos and documentary film to be released in January that will be  viewable on this site and my youtube channel Schizophrenia Solution.

Schizophrenia – Cause and Cure, Dr. Mackliff explains Results from BEAM Surgery

BEAM Explanation

Please watch my documentary film A Life Worth Living – Solution to Schizophrenia on this site that clearly explains the schizophrenia process and how the BEAM surgery works to eliminate the symptoms of schizophrenia and regulate cerebral dopamine. It is a scientific document of a miraculous cure for schizophrenia.

The biological cause of schizophrenia has never before been described. Please watch this impressive video and open your minds to a new understanding of mental illness and schizophrenia, and why there can now be a cure for this terrible disease. Film is narrated in English with English sub-titles where Spanish language is heard.

The Importance of Stress in the Initiation and Course of Schizophrenia

mentally ill-2

The knowledge that stress brings on the symptoms of schizophrenia and also is behind the first psychotic episode of schizophrenia is simple information but not widely known.

It is very likely that stress affects all areas of the brain but particularly the prefrontal and temporal regions: the same dysfunctional neural regions involved in schizophrenia. The fact that this link is not so often explored by many authors of popular theories about schizophrenia reminds me of the old metaphor that says, “It’s difficult for the fish to see the water around them.” Psychiatrists don’t seem to understand this simple relationship between stress and the progression of the disease and don’t advise their patients accordingly.

People with schizophrenia cannot overcome deep tension. For example, recovery of self-esteem can be long term, adding to their social isolation, sense of alienation, and social defeat. These aspects contribute to the spiral to more stress and anxiety and a deep sense of helplessness.

Research in Europe by researchers such as Jim van Os, in the Netherlands, has highlighted the etiological importance of various psychosocial risk factors in schizophrenia. On a biological level of analysis, much of the research has focused on the neuroendocrine system, particularly the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (LHPA).

His research notes that only the LHPA is embedded within a multilevel system of functional connectivity that includes many neurotransmitter systems (including the dopaminergic, glutamatergic, adrenergic, etc.), ionic and metabolic neurotransmission.

The link between the LHPA hyperarousal and hippocampal function may explain the deterioration of neurocognitive functioning sometimes observed in chronic psychotic states. Dopaminergic neurons in the prefrontal area (key neurons in traditional and modern reductionist perspectives on schizophrenia) are particularly vulnerable to stress, even at low levels (Horger, 1966).

Some may assume that the increase of cortisol is the result of the schizophrenic illness. However, research has been conducted that demonstrates that increased cortisol levels result in psychotic relapse, which means that stress was a precursor to and not a consequence of psychosis. (Koehler) (Walker, 1997, 2000, 2001) (Lewine, 2005)

Stress and the Hypothalamus

Researchers have shown that the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenaline axis is involved in various ways during chronic stress depending on the type of stressor, the individual response to the stressor, and other factors. Stressors that threaten the physical integrity, are uncontrollable, or implicate trauma may have a high profile and higher than normal levels at night, resulting in a high level of cortisol release during the day. Controllable stressors instead tend to produce more normal morning cortisol. The release of the stress hormone tends to gradually reduce over the time since tension occurred.

The effect of the average levels of cortisol in schizophrenic patients compared to controls match with people that suffer from affective disorders. People with schizophrenia cannot overcome deep tension. For example, recovery of self-esteem can be long-term, adding to their social isolation, the alienation, and sense of social defeat. These aspects contribute to the spiral of more stress and anxiety and a deep sense of helplessness (Diforio, 1997).

The person with schizophrenia is terrified about normal existence and its multitude of social demands coupled with an inability to communicate with others. Parents and partners of persons with schizophrenia need to be extremely sensitive to the reality that persons affected by schizophrenia perceive. People with schizophrenia need to feel supported and loved in spite of their inabilities to socialize well and to communicate. This is why education of the parents and partners is so essential. I believe this education is extremely lacking in modern psychiatric care, both inside and outside of the hospital. In my case, we all walked around in the dark, ignoring the basic symptoms until it was too late. This is a real tragedy in the current scientific age where so much can be known about the brain and its functions.

Patients of Dr. Mackliff and their families are filled with deep gratitude for Dr. Mackliff for his thirty years of careful scientific work, documenting his findings based on simple observation of his patients and what improved their condition. This is the valid scientific research that has been basically stopped by the pharmaceutical industry with its greed for profits from perpetuating only antipsychotic drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar depression, a close relative of schizophrenia. This is the evil afflicting those with schizophrenia in the twenty-first century.

First BEAM Patient Filmed Interview, Guayaquil, Ecuador 2015

I am re-posting this post with the comment that Danny told me that it took three years to completely recover from schizophrenia. He did not experience any relapses. Other patients who had BEAM surgery had one or more relapses and had to resume higher doses of anti-psychotic drugs for periods of time. In my book I give a complete realistic story of the patients and their recoveries. Ultimately, this treatment has had highly successful results compared with any currently available treatments.

Danny Carchi

First Patient Interview

The day after arriving in Guayaquil, we met the first patient, Danny Carchi. Danny is a thirty-two-year-old man who lives with his mother and twin brother in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Before having the BEAM surgery, he studied electrical engineering at a university, but due to his illness, he had abandoned his studies eight years ago. He was submitted to BEAM in 2012, five years ago.

His disease began in 2005, when he was twenty-one years old, with an intense catatonic state. Two years later, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. He experienced tactile hallucinations under the skin and audio hallucinations. His mother said that he was so rigid and had such tremors that she had to feed him with a spoon. She was completely desperate, and when Danny saw an article about Dr. Mackliff and the BEAM procedure in a college paper and showed it to her, she called immediately and made an appointment with Dr. Mackliff.

This is how the patients and Danny’s mother described their experience of living with schizophrenia.

DANNY: “I thought I was being chased, that people could read my mind—everybody was paying attention to me. I had a hyperactive mind—too many ideas.”

NARCISA: “I had perceptions. I thought that my family didn’t love me. I totally was 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 was always rejecting them.”

ROBERTA (DANNY’S MOM): “He would become rigid—a lot of sweating. He couldn’t keep his balance. His food would fall from the spoon while eating. At this point, I was desperate. We reached a point in which I had to feed him, especially at dinner time, after I came back from work. At bed time, his feet became very cold, so I took him to the doctor; the doctors diagnosed him with depression.”

Results after BEAM

From the first day after surgery, Danny told his mother that the acoustic hallucinations had disappeared for the most part; he stopped believing that the car horns were directed at him. His attention, memory, willpower, and thought content were normal according to Dr. Mackliff.

A few months after the surgery, Danny told his mother that he felt normal and that the disease didn’t bother him anymore. He wanted to return to the university, and he did. He is now in his third year at the university studying Informatics.

Danny has the confidence and composure of someone who knows who he is and knows who he is not. He is a clear example of the maturity of someone who has recovered from a great trauma, schizophrenia. He looked directly at us while speaking, spoke deliberately and intentionally, and was warm and compassionate. It was such a pleasure to know him.

He stated that it took about three years to completely recover from his illness—that it was little by little. Danny is now on one-fourth of a tablet of antipsychotic medicine per day and has a completely normal life. He lives with his mother and twin brother who has just graduated from the same university in Guayaquil.

When asked what, his message would be for young people with schizophrenia in the United States, he said, “Have faith, believe in your healing, have the surgery, have hope, and never give up.” “Never Give Up” was written on a T-shirt a girl was wearing while I was running along the Malecón on the morning of the interview.

His mother’s message to other mothers was that “meeting Dr. Mackliff and knowing the BEAM surgery was a true blessing from God. My life and my son’s life have been restored, and I am so grateful.”

Roberta told us, “I would tell the families of patients with schizophrenia, not to hesitate, go for the surgery, with Dr. Mackliff or with whoever they like or can, because in our case, this gave us back our life, I was on the verge of madness.”

Danny’s message to others with schizophrenia was, “What I can tell anybody suffering from this disease is to keep the faith, keep going, fight, and with this doctor’s help, you are going to be better—your life is going to be normal again. I know this because Dr. Mackliff’s treatment has been successful for me, and after the surgery, I haven’t had any relapse; I have continued with the medications for a while but only one-fourth of a tablet daily. So, keep up. Trust in God. He will help you.”

Please share this post with others who like you are looking for a schizophrenia solution. It is the only treatment solution for schizophrenia, and it will never be found by the millions of dollars of pharmaceutical funded research in developed countries.

New BEAM Patient Testimonial from Mother in Chili

Dear Doctor,

You will not believe me, but yesterday we remembered you and I told my sister that I was going to write to tell you the positive evolution of my son Paulo.

With great joy I tell you that Paulo has evolved in an extraordinary way, especially in the last 3 months. Practically this normal, passed the fears, the insecurities, the constant depression that maintained, is totally autonomous, works, shares, talks, goes out with his friends and acts like a normal person. I dare say he has achieved a 95% recovery. His doctor has eliminated the Azymol, has lowered the Quetiapina and soon will begin to lower the Depurol. I hope in God that he continues to evolve further to continue to reduce the medications, but with all that he has recovered, I can have the peace of mind that he will be able to fend for himself when his parents are no longer with him.

Again express my deepest thanks to you and Dr. Sanchez and tell you that I receive emails from people who consult for the experience of this surgery, of course my recommendations are in favor of this method and the prestigious experience of doctors Who carry it out.

Finally I regret that Pablo Ucha did not have the same fate as my son in terms of recovery, but this is the procedure, not everyone favors them in the same way.

We send our most sincere affections from Chile

Flora Alvarado, Chili

Dr. Mackliff’s letter to Flora explaining about the case of Pablo.

Dear friend

Ing. Flora Alvarrado

I would like to know how you are there in Calbulco.

I am particularly interested in knowing how Paulo is and what his general state of health is.

I only knew for Pablo Ucha that you had talked with his mother, and we are lamenting that this case is particularly under obsessive symptoms that were not eliminated with the operation.

I say goodbye, I wish the best for your family and I look forward to your kind answer.

Dr Jose Mackliff



Payments from Pharmaceutical Companies Influence Clinical Decision Making

Before trusting your child to a psychiatrist and their prescriptions for antipsychotic drugs, please read this chapter of my book A Life Worth Living – Schizophrenia Alternative Treatment. I’m going to lay out the facts for you in ten sections. I hope when you are done reading, you will understand that we are in a national crisis with mental healthcare for our children, and the choices we make are a matter of life or death for our children.

  • Payoffs from Pharmaceutical Companies to Psychiatrists
  • No Safe Dosage Levels Set for Antipsychotics by Pharmaceutical Companies or the FDA based on the safety and efficacy of antipsychotic drugs
  • International Consensus Study for Dosage of Antipsychotic Drugs conflicts with common dosages prescribed by US psychiatrists.
  • No Efficacy Studies for Antipsychotic Drugs for the Dosage Levels Commonly Prescribed by Psychiatrists. I found no studies done for dosages commonly prescribed or for durations over eighteen months nor for the dosage of Seroquel that my son was put on. All drug studies in medical schools and universities in the United States are funded by the pharmaceutical industry, and only studies on pharmaceuticals are funded.
  • World Health Organization’s Assessment of the Use of Antipsychotic Drugs in the United States.
  • No Legal Recourse for Mis-prescribing or Overprescribing Antipsychotic Drugs since no safe dosage levels are listed in the mandated medication information sheets nor are any required by the FDA (and the FDA is responsible for the safety and effectiveness of food and drugs).
  • Number of Adults, Adolescents, and Children in the United States on Antipsychotic Drugs as the First Line of Treatment for Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, and Aggression
  • Further Evidence of Pharmaceutical Paybacks Influencing Prescribing
  • National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Ties to Pharma

Is this an evil conspiracy between psychiatrists and drug companies? Are psychiatrists ill intended in their treatment of their schizophrenic patients? No. This is big business and how it operates without any controls and with an unsurpassable lobby group in Congress. Without safety guidelines (validated by long-term studies and accepting subjective data as real data) for commonly prescribed doses of antipsychotics, the psychiatrist makes his or her own decisions based entirely on his or her experience with his or her patients.

Unfortunately, the studies that have been done on antipsychotics demonstrate that the dosage and combination of drugs must be individualized for each patient.

Payoffs from Pharmaceutical Companies to Psychiatrists

In the United States, antipsychotics are prescribed to children and adolescents at a rate six times greater than the United Kingdom, which has socialized medicine and charges the same amount for any medicine. In June 2007, The New York Times reported that psychiatrists in Vermont and Minnesota topped the list of doctors receiving pharmaceutical company gifts and that this financial relationship corresponds to the “growing use of atypical (new antipsychotics) in children.” From 2000 to 2005, drug maker payments to psychiatrists in Minnesota rose more than six fold to $1.6 million. During these same years, prescriptions of antipsychotics for children under the state’s insurance program rose more than nine fold.

About Open Payments Database

Doctors and hospitals having financial relationships with health care manufacturing companies stimulated the creation of Open Payments, a federally run transparency program begun in 2014 that collects information about these financial relationships and makes it available to the public. These relationships can involve money for research activities, gifts, speaking fees, meals, or travel. One of the ways Open Payments provides this data to the public is through a search tool, which allows an individual to search for a doctor or teaching hospital that has received payments or a company that has made payments. Exploring this information and discussing the results found with your healthcare provider can help to make more informed healthcare decisions.
More information about the program can be found on the Open Payments website There you can get an overview of the data that’s been collected and displayed and learn more about the context around the data. For questions about the data, contact the Open Payments team at

One of my son’s psychiatrists is listed in the Open Payments Data; probably many psychiatrists are on this list, since receiving pharmaceutical paybacks is common practice in all specialties. Since this service has only been available since 2014 and two of the most prescribed antipsychotic drugs for schizophrenia Seroquel and risperidone became available in their generic form in 2014, the kickbacks listed were under $1,000 for my son’s doctor in 2014. This, however, doesn’t show how much they made while the drugs were still under the original patent name (which lasted for ten years) or when the patent name prescriptions are written for the government insurance plans to pay for.
The first prescription my son’s doctor wrote for us was for Seroquel. The price for a one-month prescription of Seroquel was $1,600 charged to Medicaid. Quetiapine, the generic form, was $400. The doctor changed the prescription to the generic name only when we requested it. Antipsychotic drugs represent the largest drug expenditure of the government insurance system in the United States. The doctor prescribed 1000mg day, 400mg over the highest tested amount by the manufacturer.

Like the Opioid epidemic in the U.S., we are in an epidemic of overprescribing psychotropic drugs with the motive of pure profit over-ruling a legitimate need for the drugs at the dosages prescribed.
