I recently read the book “Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins” by Thomas Levy and learned about the electron theory of health. Basically disease and inflammation is a result of a lack of electrons. Oxidation and inflammation consume electrons. Anti-oxidants give electrons. Most other animals produce their own vitamin C naturally, but humans do not so we are particularly susceptible to deficiency. While there are many different anti-oxidants out there, vitamin C is particularly good because it goes throughout the entire body whereas other anti-oxidants tend to focus on specific systems. We can only absorb 8-12 grams of vitamin C a day. But it has been shown that intravenous vitamin C injections has healed people from the brink of death. It has been shown to cure polio, ebola, heavy metal poisoning, mushroom poisoning, snake bites, etc. It is truly a miracle substance at high doses (50 gram infusions). However it is hard to find this, so they now have liposomal vitamin C which allows us to absorb ultra-high doses orally. It’s very expensive though.
So then I listened to a book about Earthing called “Earthing. The Most Important Health Discover Ever?” by Clint Ober and he talked about how having contact with Earth allows us to absorb free electrons. I made the mental connection that Earthing is similar to having a transfusion of vitamin C.
Unlike vitamin C, Earthing is free. Both are good for overall health.
