Dr. José Mackliff

Jose Romeo Mackliff Hidalgo, Psychiatrist, researcher and scientist from Ecuador, born in Guayaquil, Ecuador (1.939-present). Creator of the B.E.A.M. (Bi-lateral Electrocoagulation of the adrenal marrow) procedure. A surgical procedure to eradicate the symptoms of mental illness such as Schizophrenia and also Parkinson's disease.

Dr. Mackliff finished his medical education in 1.967 at the Guayaquil State University (Guayaquil, Ecuador). His medical residency took place in Clínica Alcivar in Guayaquil, and in many other medical institutions like Hospital Luis Vernaza, Clínica Guayaquil, where his hands-on approach in E.R. made him a seasoned clinical doctor. After that time, he started working at the Lorenzo Ponce Hospital in Guayaquil, the mental hospital owned by the Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil. Where he immersed himself into the mystery of the human mind, and the cruel reality of the mental patient and their everlasting relationship to mental institutions and prescription drugs for life.

For any practical matter, Mental patients, are never going to be cured, up until now; since modern-day Psychiatry focuses on alleviating symptoms for mental patients. The inner dynamics and processes of the human mind are studied to bring about a change of psycho-somatic significance (psycho-analysis/therapy) in patients that suffer from disorders, phobias and past traumas- all of the pre-borderline order. For any Psychiatrist, committed to improve the mental health of his patients, the best treatments will only bring about a temporary improvement in behavior, only to find themselves with a relapse phase shortly afterwards; this, along with expensive prescription anti-psychotic medication for life.

"It really depressed me to know that I was never going to cure my patients"
Dr. Jose Mackliff - Circa 1.976
