These experiences can occur in one sense at a time (hearing a voice, for example, or smelling something), but they can also happen in combination. For example, someone who is lonely may really value a voice that becomes a trusted confidant.A person who has recently lost someone they care about may benefit from talking to them at the end of the day, or smelling their perfume/aftershave.We’re all unique, so it’s unsurprising that voices and visions can be equally individual in terms of their identity, content, interpretation and impact. If you don’t recognise your experience here, that doesn’t mean you’re ‘weird’ or ‘unusual’. These voices can be male, female, genderless, old or young. Voices can speak constantly (24/7), but they can also utter occasional words or phrases.Some people hear voices talking when no-one is around. People can hear other types of sounds too, including knocking, rustling, crying, screaming or music.If you include one off experiences (like hearing someone call your name when you’re out shopping, or feeling your phone vibrate in your pocket) this figure goes up to 75%.
Now take a deep breath and feel the Allegra-D difference.Those that have never had this experience are in the minority.A number of famous and important people (past and present) have experience of hearing or seeing things that other people don’t.However, for some people these voices and visions can be extremely distressing – criticising, threatening or causing confusion.Statistics vary, but it’s generally accepted that between 3 and 10% of the population hear voices that other people don’t.
