Dr Penny Sartori - Hallucinations are usually caused by pharmaceuticals in hospitals



Type of spiritual experience

Hallucination (12)


Raphael Kellman
Western medicine, with all its materialistic focus on the body and its insistence on ignoring the spirit, is literally making us sick - and then is making it virtually impossible for us to heal

A description of the experience

The Wisdom of Near Death Experiences - Dr Penny Sartori

Interestingly, when drug administration is considered in the hallucination group, out of the 12 patients who reported bizarre hallucinations, 11 (almost 92 per cent) of them received both painkilling and sedative drugs. This appears to suggest that drugs greatly contribute to confusional, bizarre hallucinations which are in stark contrast to the clear, lucid, well-structured NDEs that were reported.
