Manic Phase of Bi-polar is Schizophrenia

Recently Dr. Mackliff was asked if BEAM Procedure could improve the lives of those diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder. Dr. Mackliff said that the manic phase of bi-polar disorder is schizophrenia. When accurately diagnosed it is schizoaffective disorder; the same type of schizophrenia my son was diagnosed with.

People with bi-polar disorder should contact Dr. Mackliff by email to discuss their symptoms with him and to know if BEAM surgery would work for them. The doctor can be contacted at

Schizophrena, a Functional Disorder of the Brain


Schizophrenia is a functional disorder of the balance of hormones in the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Thyroid-Adrenal axis (HPTA) in the brain stem and glucose regulation. Both of these critical imbalances cause cerebral dopamine to become unregulated. Too much dopamine floods the limbic region and too little (Parkinson disease) enters other regions of the brain.

Just like the girl in “Brain on Fire” who suffered a rare auto-immune disorder in the brain, people with schizophrenia suffer mechanical disruptions to the normal functioning of the brain.

“It’s not your fault. It’s not your fault. It’s not your fault.” I want to cry out to my son and to your sons and daughters with this disease. You have to send this message to them and lead them to the cure – BEAM surgery in Ecuador. Emphasize that it is not a surgery of the brain, but a surgery on the adrenal medulla glands above the two kidneys that regulates dopamine production and normalizes the symptoms of schizophrenia almost immediately after the surgery. This is a miracle treatment based on 40 years of careful and scientific research into what causes schizophrenia and what cures it.

Why is this disease only available in Ecuador and not in the more developed countries such as the United States? Because the motivation to cure this disease and relieve suffering was not profitable. Dr. Jose Mackliff’s research was entirely self-funded and entirely based on relieving the suffering of his schizophrenic patients from the beginning. He retained hope even when there was no reason for hope. He pushed through to a solution to schizophrenia.

How to Convince your Child to try BEAM

Dr. Jose Mackliff & BEAM

The best way to convince your child to try BEAM is to thoroughly understand it yourself. My book simplifies it; also posts on this website. BEAM works because there is a known cause of schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is caused by an imbalance in hormones in the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Thyroid-Adrenal (HPTA) arc in the brain stem. When the hormones are imbalanced, a disruption in glucose-regulation occurs. This causes a malfunction in the cerebral distribution of dopamine. Too much dopamine is released into the limbic region of the brain.

Because too much adrenaline is produced in a schizophrenic person, adrenaline is blocked from reaching the HPTA arc and an imbalance occurs. and results in a disruption of glucose regulation.  When blood adrenaline is blocked 100% through the BEAM surgery, the brain compensates and produces nor-adrenaline in sufficient quantities to reach the HPTA arc, and glucose is regulated. After BEAM surgery cerebral dopamine is distributed in the correct amount and the symptoms of schizophrenia are almost immediately eliminated a few days after the surgery.

Testimonials from people who have had the surgery in 2018 are on blog posts on this site, with contact information. There is also a Testimonials Page on my site with many testimonials.

The evidence for BEAM is 100% there. It is scientifically based and proven over 200 successful surgeries to be the only treatment that cures schizophrenia.

One patient,  Anabelle, with a case study video in my film told me, “When I was 21, I wanted to take my life. Then my aunt contacted me saying she had learned about a treatment for schizophrenia that was curing the disease. I felt that I would rather die trying than not to try at all.”

Tell that to your child. To try it. It can only help and has no side effects. What is the alternative – to continue to live a life not worth living? Tell them that the treatment will get them off of antipsychotic drugs completely within one year and for that year put them on a much lower dose with one or two pills, not 13 or more prescribed by psychiatrists. All of their talents, personality characteristics and education before schizophrenia will be restored.

How to Convince your Family Member of BEAM


Dr. Jose Mackliff and BEAM Surgery

To convince the money lender of the necessity of this surgery, I would refer them to the documentary film on my website and the blog archive testimonials. I would ask them to call the four people (Americans) who have taken their sons and daughters for the surgery in 2018. That information is in my blog archives. I would have them call me with their questions and concerns. Having the BEAM surgery is a matter of life or death for a person with schizophrenia. You should be relentless in your efforts to convince your parent or friend to fund this procedure. They should also email Dr. Mackliff at

Review the testimonials on my site and on You can buy a copy of my book, co-authored by Dr. Mackliff on Amazon. A Life Worth Living – Alternative Treatment for Schizophrenia.

Changes after BEAM Surgery

Change in Glucose level in the Brain

After  BEAM,  acetylcholine, (  an enzyme in the hypothalamus) has an

important role in the release of glucagon, which together with cortisol will

control the gluco-regulatory function of the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid

axis in the brain. This axis is an interconnection of neuron messages

that stimulate hormone release from the three glands in the brain stem.

Acetylcholine is widely distributed in the central nervous system and

is particularly implicated in memory circuits, the reward (“reward”) response

and extrapyramidal circuits, and the peripheral nervous system at

the level of the autonomic nervous system.

Changes to the Tyrosine Function

Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid. In the brain, tyrosine is used to synthesize

a class of neurotransmitters known as catecholamine’s, which includes

adrenaline, norepinephrine, and dopamine. When adrenaline is eliminated

from the bloodstream and noradrenaline by 20 percent, the tyrosine chain

responds by producing the right amount of dopamine in the brain.

Changes to the Brain Neurons

BEAM produces a new neural oscillation (the act of regularly moving

from one position to another and back to the original position) and an

electrochemical change in the brain. The neuronal oscillation is an essential

part of the design of the brain. The neuronal oscillation facilitates

neural synaptic plasticity and consolidation of long-term information.

Neurons can generate action potentials in a sequence called multiple

spike trains that share results from changes in the electrical potential of

the membranes. These rail spikes are the basis for information transfer in

the brain and in the neural code. The spike trains can develop all kinds of

patterns, reversing rhythms, and often show oscillatory activity.

The oscillatory activity in individual neurons is also observed in subthreshold

fluctuations in membrane potentials. These rhythmic changes

in the membrane potential do not reach the critical threshold and therefore

do not give rise to the action of potential. They are synchronous

postsynaptic potentials that are intrinsic properties of the neuron.

Hormonal Changes

Changes in the circadian rhythm of cortisol levels, enhanced synaptic

plasticity, plasticity dopaminergic, HPA axis functioning, and the autonomic

system is stimulated to function with another rhythm after BEAM


Cortisol, a hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex through a psychological

circadian rhythm, modulates plastic neuronal adaptation to

environmental stimuli during the day. Conversely, high levels of cortisol

during the day and night lead to a reduction of neuronal plasticity and

the inability of neurons to express and strengthen the synapses with emotional

and negative changes and affective and cognitive functions.

The change in cortisol rhythm is one of the successes of BEAM, resulting

from the disappearance of adrenaline. Cortisol changes the circadian

rhythm to regulate glucose with glucagon, and this promotes the

hypothalamic pituitary function. This corresponds to the physiological

changes that cause immediate responses in schizophrenic patients and

Parkinson patients submitted to BEAM.

Stress as It Relates to Schizophrenia

Stress as It Relates to Schizophrenia


It is important for people to act quickly when they have schizophrenia. Things change very quickly with schizophrenia and what is possible now may not be possible in the future. Stress is an underlying factor in this.

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.

(Diforio, 1997).

If I had known this when my son first showed signs of schizophrenia,

I would have directed all of my efforts to remove the stress in his life. My

son didn’t need to go to a major university, he could have returned to the

junior college near his home, which is what he wanted to do once he left

the university. Instead of encouraging him to do that and supporting him

and his defeated self-esteem, I told him it didn’t make sense for him to

return to junior college since he had already graduated with honors.

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


The effect of the average levels of cortisol in schizophrenic patients

compared to controls match with people that suffer from affective disorders.

(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

was logical thinking and totally disconnected from my son’s condition.

After that, he isolated himself and told us lies about the education he was

pursuing. He felt like he had failed us as well as himself.

Early in Marco’s illness, Dr. Mackliff recommended that Marco not

attend the university for a year and have the BEAM surgery as soon as

possible. He said that studying uses the glucose in the brain, and this imbalance

increases the production of adrenaline, thereby increasing stress

in his body. This idea seemed too drastic to us at the time, and we had no

one to turn to. His psychiatrist flippantly said, “Perhaps, he’ll do fine,”

when Marco wanted to start at university.

Stress is a permanent condition in the person with schizophrenia.

There is too much adrenaline in the body, and this produces stress.

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 limbichypothalamic-

pituitary-adrenal axis (LHPA).

It is important for people to act quickly when they have schizophrenia. Things change very quickly with schizophrenia and what is possible now may not be possible in the future. Stress is an underlying factor in this. Act now to schedule the BEAM surgery for your loved one or for yourself. Educate yourself on the BEAM Procedure and write to Dr. Mackliff.
