According to Islamic Medicine, there are two kinds of epilepsy; the first type arises from a physical imbalance of hormones and impulses inside the body and brain. This type is commonly acknowledged by practitioners of modern western medicine and is treated with drugs and therapy. The second type is just as real and of just as much concern. It is the symptom which arises from the effects of negative spiritual forces (the Jinn) which have invaded the human body and are residing in it. This type cannot be treated with drugs or therapy. The negative forces can only be expelled from the human body by using Ruqya (recitation of certain verses of the Qur'an) administered by a righteous soul (an experienced Raqi).
