This book, which covers Visions and hallucinations, explains what causes them and summarises how many hallucinations have been caused by each event or activity. It also provides specific help with questions people have asked us, such as ‘Is my medication giving me hallucinations?’.

Type of Spiritual Experience


There is the inevitable pointless and somewhat arrogant assertion that somehow scientists can do better than nature by extracting the chemicals in plants in order to administer them to people, but we can ignore this and concentrate on the important finding that the foodstuffs mentioned help with both asthma and COPD.


A description of the experience

Expert Rev Respir Med. 2007 Oct;1(2):227-46. Doi: 10.1586/17476348.1.2.227. Phytoceuticals: the new 'physic garden' for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Grandhi S, Donnelly LE, Rogers DF. Airway Disease, National Heart & Lung Institute, Imperial College London, Dovehouse Street, London SW3 6LY, UK.

Phytoceuticals (non-nutritional but beneficial plant chemicals) merit investigation as pharmacotherapy for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Although asthma is mostly treated adequately, COPD is not. Thus, there is a need for new drugs with improved therapeutic benefit, especially in COPD.

Recent interest in herbal remedies has redirected attention towards plants as sources of improved treatments for lung disease.

Phytoceuticals from a variety of plants and plant products, including butterbur, English ivy, apples, chocolate, green tea and red wine, demonstrate broad-spectrum pharmacotherapeutic activities that could be exploited in the clinic.

Well-designed clinical trials are required to determine whether these beneficial activities are reproduced in patients, with the prospect that phytoceuticals are the new physic garden for asthma and COPD.
