Fraser, P - Drug Remedies: From Earth to Sky Through the Underworld

The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation.  Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members.  Groups include the insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes and the Drugs.

Peter's new book shows how the Drug Remedies are a complex group of remedies made up of plants from many families and of synthetic chemicals.  The substances from which they are made are extremely important both to society and to individuals and they have a major role to play in the treatment of many modern diseases and states.

This book contains information on some seventy five remedies.  It looks at the role of chemical structure and plant families in defining characteristics and looks at provings classical and modern, as well as the information given by poisonings and the experiences of recreational users.  The remedies are divided into three basic groups: Narcotics, Hallucinogens and Stimulants and the similarities and differentials between them are examined.
