Ruqyah treatment

Q: There is a facebook page where there are raqi's who suggests people ruqyah. In my case they suggested ruqyah for evil eye. The process is to listen to two audios, aayatul harq and evil eye ruqyah. And take ruqyah ghusl (keeping my hands in the water and recite surahs and take bath with that water) I did it before but didn't do it perfectly so the raqi suggested me to do it again for 2 weeks. Whenever I do this I become depressed, my concentration goes, my hair starts falling so much etc. Many people experience this in the early stage of ruqyah and after completing it, the symptoms are gone.

My question is, is this a sunnah method. Should I do it? 

A: This is not a sunnah practice but a treatment. If the treatment conforms to Shariah it will be permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
