These are two separate treatments. First, the belladonna treatment “was an old treatment for depression and muscle spasm. Belladonna, also known as Deadly Nightshade, is a powerful sedative, narcotic and muscle relaxant that is no longer widely used for such treatments because it is also poisonous.” http://anonpress.org/faq/files/read.asp?fID=25
