Shalom Rabbi Brody,

Some years ago I seriously injured my shoulder. Part of my recovery from this injury was a course of Pilates.
I enjoyed this Pilates very much.
It produced positive results in agility, balance and strength in a matter of three months, all from just two one hour long sessions per week.
It taught me to lift from "The Core", which is a good way to protect the back.

Also too, some years ago I injured my shin and knee playing sports.
The result is I cannot run very much.
But I walk.
I spent a short time living in Israel.
I loved walking there, because I would change my route and see things along the way which I might otherwise have missed, then I could photograph, and sometimes meet people with whom I would had a chat.
It made me happy to walk.

I believe that drinking regular black tea (no milk) protects the heart.
I also have read that Olives do too.

Have you encountered an Israeli doctor named Dr. Shaul Eger?
He has a fascinating story of his experience of arrythmia and how he used olive oil to cure it.


Shabbat Shalom

Welcome back and כל הכבוד to you for following your doctors' advice! As a former cardiac nurse, I've seen what happens when people ignore warning signs.

We need your energies and your heart full-time in emuna!

learn to listen to your body


B"H I really appreciate your outlook and humble approach toward HaShem's redirection of your life.

On the bright side, it's surely much easier to do hitbodedut while walking, rather than while sprinting! Baruch HaShem for that!

You're the best, rabbi Lazer. We all love you and adore you so much. Thank you for taking good care of yourself and ensuring many many more years for us to bask in your illuminating light.


Welcome to the club! All us middle aged "athletes" have to learn to tone it down at some point. It's no longer about pushing your body to its limits. Gentle stretching, yoga, and walking are great ways to keep the body ( and mind) healthy and supple. Enjoy the new track- it's wonderful too! Zei gezunt!

Mr. Cohen

Dear Rabbi Brody,

Can you get a second opinion, this time from a Jewish doctor?

Your fan,
Mr. Cohen


Hi Mr. Cohen! Rav Brody told me to let you know that he did in fact get a second opinion from a Jewish doctor. Stay tuned for my article that will give further details into this story. It will also explain why he refrained from following the traditional route of Coumadin/cardioversion.

I am a distance running baal tshuva that met you about 9 years ago when you were visiting the States. I pray that whatever tikkun is necessitated by these news is quickly achieved and that you see a turn-around in your health that allows you to resume a more aggressive fitness regimine.

I also hope you keep posting on health and fitness from time to time.


Dear rav Brody, i owe y ou a lot, because it ils tanks to y ou i discovered rabbi Nahman. I am sad to read what happened and hope you will be able to run again soon! I keep shabat and learn tora and hasidut Breslev every day now, many years already, so thank you. And made aliyah from France to Israel.


That's wonderful, Dan! Keep up the great work. Hashem is so proud of you, and so are we!
