Linen actually helps repair the body by harmonizing with the cells. If this sounds a bit too New Age for you, bear with us:
Nobel prize-winning Dr. Otto Heinrich
Warburg assigned atomic frequency numbers to material substances. The atomic frequency measurement of linen fabric measured 5,000. Cotton came in at around 40, silk at ten, and plastic materials such as polyester, acrylic, spandex, lycra,
viscose and nylon measured in at zero units of energy. In short, organic materials such as linen (and wool) give off energy, while artificial fabrics absorb it.
