  • Download E-books Dicker Hals und kalte Füße: Was Redensarten über Körper und Seele verraten - Eine heitere Einführung in die Psychosomatik (German Edition) PDF

    By Walter Schmidt

    Eine heitere Einführung in die Psychosomatik

    - Entlarvend und überraschend: Dieses Buch bringt uns dazu, den eigenen Körper mit anderen Augen zu sehen

    - Amüsant und mit einem Augenzwinkern geschrieben, von medizinischen Fachleuten geprüft und für intestine befunden

    - Ein gewinnbringendes und lesenswertes Buch und ein wunderbares Geschenk für die beste Freundin

    Er hat nicht Medizin studiert, plappert munter drauf los, haut manchmal daneben, liegt aber erstaunlich oft richtig: der Volksmund. Tag für Tag wagt er Urteile, die Ärzte erst nach gründlicher Untersuchung fällen würden.

    Klar ist: Wird die Seele missachtet, leidet der Körper. Darüber legt die Alltagssprache seit vielen hundert Jahren beredtes Zeugnis ab: Wenn uns etwas unter die Haut oder an die Nieren geht, die Sprache verschlägt oder uns das Herz in die Hose rutscht – hinter solchen Metaphern verbergen sich erstaunlich oft physiologische Vorgänge.

    Wo der Volksmund Recht hat und wo er irrt, das ergründet Walter Schmidt in seinem unterhaltsamen Buch am Beispiel zahlreicher Redensarten. Dass die Wahrheit meist irgendwo dazwischen liegt, macht es umso spannender, sich ihr zu nähern. Und werden Redensarten über Körper und Seele mal ganz wörtlich genommen, kommt etwas völlig Unerwartetes zum Vorschein.
