A lady, aged about 42, had been in the Johns Hopkins Hospital for several months, and had also been treated in southern sanitariums. Several operations, mostly of a gynecological character, had been performed. The nervous element in her case, for which she had been operated upon, was only aggravated after her return home, and for over two years she had occasional paroxysms of headache, indigestion, hysteria, insomnia, etc. Her physician explained that it usually took about two days for him to get her relieved, and then two days longer to get her over the effects of the therapeutic remedies he had used to relieve her terrible seizures.

She was hypnotized and allowed to sleep two hours, and suggestions were given to relieve the nervous element in her case, to give her more plentiful and refreshing sleep, to relieve her headaches, to get her to breathe deeper, drink water freely, and aid her digestion. It was also suggested that her nerves would always be quiet, and steady, and strong, and that she would never have another attack. She awoke from the two hours' sleep completely relieved. Five years later she had experienced no more trouble.
