    Über Gesundheit zu reden funktioniert auf Fachkongressen und im Wartezimmer genauso intestine wie auf Partys und Parteitagen. Interessant an all diesen verschiedenen Gesundheitserzählungen sind folgende Fragen: Worüber wird geredet? Wer redet viel und wer wenig? Warum und mit welcher Wirkung wird geredet? Die Erzählforschung untersucht die Funktionsweisen von alltäglichen und wissenschaftlichen Erzählungen und ihre Potenziale, die Wirklichkeit nicht nur zu beschreiben und zu erklären, sondern auch zu beeinflussen. Das Thema Gesundheit unter Erzählperspektive zu beleuchten ist gewinnbringend, denn während die fachlichen Inhalte des Gesundheitsnarrativs sehr weitreichend erkundet werden, sind seine begleitenden erzählerischen Elemente kaum beforscht, obwohl sie z.B. Aufschluss darüber geben können, warum der Waschbrettbauch den Wohlstandsbauch als sichtbares Zeichen von erfolgreicher Lebensführung ablösen konnte und wie das Erzählen diese Wirklichkeitstransformation begleitet hat. Beim faktual-fiktionalen Gesundheitsnarrativ geht es additionally nicht um die Wahrheit und nichts als die Wahrheit, sondern erzählt wird eine spannende Geschichte über Wohlsein und Wehklagen, tugendhafte und sündige Lebensweisen, fitte Gewinner und matte Verlierer.
