Your attention is invited to work on health issues in the light of the Torah and the knowledge gained from our current medical sources.

What prompted me to write this book?

By the great mercy of the Creator, even from a young age my father and teacher, Rabbi Salman, the son of Rabbi Menashe Vektona, but his memory be blessed, who left this world Teve-fourth that of the year 5765, and - yes it will last for years - my mother raised me under reasonable rules in all that relates to the natural forces that need to make to take care of health. Years passed, and the issue has become even more close to me due to the fact that I served my rabbi and teacher, Rabbi Elazar Menachem Shah, and I had to deal with so many things related to his health. To strive for health - a direct duty of every religious Jew, and my rabbi and teacher treated her with diligence and consistency. In my book I gave him a grain of St. behavior in these matters. It is appropriate to recall the good of the late Professor, Rabbi Haim Amram, the son of Rabbi Masud and Rachel Abuhatsera, let their memory be blessed, who died of the second accident of the year 5758, at which I learned a lot of knowledge about healthy lifestyles.

Taking care of health in addition to direct responsibility, of course, is also a great privilege. Who does not dream about longevity? Who does not want to live a full, healthy life with minimal disruptions and maximize opportunities to fulfill their mission in this world? And do not say, "It's not up to us. All - in the hands of heaven. " As you can see by reading this book, especially the first three chapters, and the era of the Talmud sages, and later alahicheskie authorities point to the close relationship between care about health, longevity and quality of life, with the help of heaven.

When I meet people whose facial expressions and their whole appearance indicates that it is not good that they live wrongly, that their quality of life is poor already today, and who knows what else they can expect in the future, I ask them a question about how they live. They humbly respond to me, "Well, what can we can do about it?" By "this" refers to obesity, cigarettes, blood sugar imbalances, weak kidneys, high and low blood pressure, etc. etc. And every time I am amazed again and again to general ignorance. Just after the first few words of explanation applies to all listeners listening and willing to listen to again and again. He wants me to explain a little more, wrote and sent to him. It seems that for the first time in his life he hears about it all.

These meetings gave rise to the idea of ​​creating this book. In fact, this topic deserves a separate essay, a large, volume and much more detailed publication with a diverse array of links, quotes, etc. But between aspiration and reality until there was a place that only this works, written in simple, accessible language, which in condensed form contains all the necessary practical basis.

Our body is made miraculously, and said (Iyov 19:26): "From my flesh I shall see Gd." We will never be able to fully comprehend all of the processes. Our task is only interested person to say there did not seem inexplicable decrees, and every indication would be accompanied by explanations, sometimes short, sometimes quite lengthy. All of this - in order to facilitate you, the reader, the realization of these important principles of responsible care with God's help in life.

It is important to stress that the book is not some kind of a "system of natural food" or a special diet, and the basic rules of healthy living that are necessary and available to everyone regardless of age, gender, etc. Their goal - to break away from all that is harmful to health and to take the responsibility to correct behavior that with God's help and protection alienate you from the risk of getting sick.
It is important to remember a simple and reasonable rule of thumb is much easier to prevent than to cure it.
If you hurry, you can skip the first two chapters (but not the third, containing the principles of preventive medicine at Rambam), but it would be better not to. Because that's what these chapters you can get the same charge of spiritual energy, which is so necessary for the transition to the next stage - the stage of action. Moreover, I am convinced that you will find there are many new and it can change your whole outlook, "built" on our holy sources. I hope you will benefit greatly from this book and in consequence will learn more than is written here. And most importantly - forward to the action!

I wish you good health, with God's help
Rabbi Yehezkel Askhaek

The greatest gift that we can give our children - is to be named "healthy parents!"
