    Energy Healing - A Surprising...

    This work by Dr. Willy Frinta, an allopathic physician at the University of Innsbruck, is an invaluable legacy for anyone who wants to approach what is a new alternative in the treatment of diseases with increasingly encouraging results. The therapies of Dr. Frinta invite optimism in the face of the power of these unknown and untapped human abilities. The search for truth and scientific account of their professional practice make this book an essential reference in the field of alternative medicines (Ing. Jorge Reynolds Pombo, Dr. Honoris Causa, inventor of the artificial pacemaker in Colombia).
    
    In the light of this book, it is clear that healing is not only corporal but multidimensional and that the true healing comes from inside to outside of being by processes that involve the deep dynamics of the psyche and in a permanent effort of perfection that only it is possible with the full harmony of the soul (MD: Fabio Villarraga, doctor, specialist in bioethics, National University of Colombia).
    
    The contribution of Dr. Willy Frinta is not limited to healing based on the use of transmitted frequencies through his technique of laying on of hands. His scientific career includes having been in Colombia and being one of the pioneers of surgery without anesthesia. The effectiveness of the frequencies to which it appeals in the treatment of diseases was subjected to successful laboratory tests in 1996, managing to inhibit the growth of different germs. Likewise, thermographic cameras allowed to verify that these frequencies produce changes of temperature in patients, which denotes the way in which their therapy works on the human organism.

    The fun and fascinating follow-up to the international bestseller Red Herrings and White Elephants   Why do people put their "skeletons in a closet," "have a hunch," "get the cold shoulder," "get dressed up to the nines," or "call a spade a spade?" These phrases are used every day, yet most people have little or no idea where most of them come from. In Black Sheep and Lame Ducks, Albert Jack takes readers on a journey through the curious- and often bizarre-origins of hundreds of their favorite idioms and expressions.   For example, "wearing your heart on your sleeve" comes from the Middle Ages, when a lady would "give her heart" in the form of a handkerchief pinned to the sleeve of a knight who was about to go into battle. And calling someone the "black sheep in the family" refers to a thousands- year-old belief that a black lamb in a flock was unpopular because its fleece was undyeable and therefore less valuable.   With Black Sheep and Lame Ducks, any language-lover can feel like a "Smart Aleck"-and also know exactly who that was.  Albert Jack has become something of a publishing phenomenon, clocking up millions of sales with his series of bestselling adventures tracing the fantastic stories behind everyday phrases (Red Herrings and White Elephants), the world's great mysteries (Loch Ness Monsters and Raining Frogs), food history (What Caesar did for My Salad, pub names (The Old Dog and Duck) and nursery rhymes (Pop Goes the Weasel).
