Hashem's Fertility Secret

Watermelon Baby
Here is wonderful news for folks with fertility issues. Put aside the expensive pills and meds and try something natural from Hashem's garden - watermelon, and watermelon rind. Yup, the rind is full of fantastic fertility-fortifying amino acids citrulline and arginine as shown by conclusive USDA research. In fact, the name citrulline is derived from the Latin word citrullus, which means watermelon.

Many fertility and fertility-functional problems both in men and women can be traced to a lack of the amino acids citrulline and arginine.

In the urea cycle, citrulline combines with another acid to create arginine. Luis Pons of the USDA writes that arginine not only boosts fertility, but boosts muscle growth, improves wound healing, combats fatigue, stimulates the immune system, cures impotence and fights cancer. Pillar Health Care goes even further and says that arginine can benefit women by increasing the cervical mucous, enhancing libido, promoting a healthy environment for implantation and may even extend fertility for women over 40. Sperm health is also affected by arginine; one study showed a 250%-plus increase in sperm amounts and motility in most study participants. It also enhances male reproductive-functional problems, so much so that scientists at Texas A&M University have termed watermelon as "nature's Viagra". 

Need I add more? Start eating watermelon - it's in season now!

Here's an Emuna Fitness Fertility enhancer "smoothie" that both men and women can try: don't forget to invite us to your son's brit or your daughter's Kiddush, which will be soon, G-d willing. Just drink this smoothie two to three hours before bedtime and don't forget to ask Hashem to make it work for you:

Emuna Fitness Fertility Smoothie

2 Cups (approx. 500cc) mineral or filtered water

2 Cups watermelon rind (make sure that there are no bugs on the surface)

5 large pitted Medjool dates (or 10 small pitted dates)

26 dried almonds

1 level teaspoon of cinnamon powder

2 tablespoons dried shelled sunflower seeds

Preparation: Mix until smooth in a high-speed blender (approx. 90-120 seconds). Drink at least one big cup of the mixture. Any leftover holds up fine in the fridge for 48 hours. Enjoy!

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

We [Jews] need not apologize about our successes.

We earned them, the hard way.

We need not be apologetic or defensive about our power in America.

For we have seen what can, and will, happen if we abdicate that power.

Our history as a people demonstrates that we need more power than others to survive.

That is one of the important lessons to be learned from thousands of years of anti-Jewish bigotry. I am reminded of it every time I open one of my poison-pen letters.

We are not the Swiss and our history is not one of being left alone. It is one of constant victimization and repression.

Without power – indeed, without power disproportional to our numbers – we continue to be victimized. We should strive to enhance our power on every front.

Can it help women reproduce eggs?


Dear Rabbi Brody,

Now when Britain voted to leave the EU people in Scotland and Northern Irland think about referendum to leave Great Britain. Northern Irland has little chances to do it, but Scotland does have the chance if they get Sijata Dishmaja. Let's support them with our prayers together with Rav Shalom Arush to succeed and to leave the Britain. Thus we can take vengeance on England for all the evil they did to jewish people like preventing them to leave the Europe before and during world war two, preventing them to establish state of Israel, helping Hitler to come to power and many other crimes against jewish people.

With regards,
