The following fan theories are about Healing touch.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|It's not possible to heal Tracy or someone else with freezing or water mimicry.||None|| + It's only possible to heal things if they are alive or once were alive, there is no life in water.|
|Healing touch works by manipulating the life force of living things by either making it repair their physical damage or draining it away.||None|| + Noah said a woman in China could control the flow of life. This fits the description.|
+ Peter could've felt tired not because he was giving his own life force (which, theoretically, could kill him as Jeremy's victims died having lost their life force), but because he manipulated the life force there already was.
|Healing touch works by manipulating bioreactions.||None|| + Healing could work by accelerating cellular replication in damaged areas of the subject's body (while somehow providing the necessary nutrients, minerals, etc., which are needed to allow such rapid regeneration).|
+ This would explain why the ability cannot resurrect the dead.
|Healing touch energizes the user when it's used to kill someone or something.||None|| + Users of this ability become exhausted after using this ability, implying that it transfers some of their life force into whoever they're healing. Theoretically, since they lose energy by giving life, they could gain energy by taking it.|
+ Jeremy never looked exhausted after he used his ability to kill people (though he also never looked like he had any more energy after using it to kill than before he used it), but Peter did after using it to heal people.
