Have proper kavanah when saying this bracha
 

  The Healing Power of Ashar Yatzar

Numerous stories depict the power of Asher Yatzar said properly with understanding and intent, and the merit of furthering its recital, actions which have in the past brought about complete recoveries even from Polio (well known story of the Chazon Ish).

Rav Mendel Weinbach, Rosh Yeshiva of Ohr Sameach, recounts a remarkable story of the power of Asher Yatzar. A father of a six year old autistic child decided to sponsor 300 posters of Asher Yatzar, placed outside of bathrooms, to help his son. The next morning his son woke up and began to speak, his autism was gone.

The Seder Hayom even codifies, "One should make this bracha with proper kavana, and say every word etc., and if one is complete in his thoughts… he will not become sick his entire life, nor will he need a doctor or healing, and therefore, one must make the bracha with complete intention and full cognizance, to the Healer of all mankind and the wonderous creator"..

 

 

I thank torah tots for this wonderful chizuk on Asher Yatzar.  www.torahtots.com

We shouldn't wait until we get sick to appreciate our health.

Asher Yatzar is mentioned in the Talmud (Berachot 60b) as one of the brachot compiled by the Anshei Knesset HaGedolah (Men [Sages] of the Great Assembly) (circa 410-310 BCE).

The Chafetz Chaim and other Great Sages write that the reciting of Asher Yatzar with the proper Kavanah (sincerity, devotion, intent) and from the written text, has the power to help one have a healthy body all of their life. There are many people who were saved from a severe illness by saying this Bracha from the written text with the proper kavanah. This is an easy way to keep down all those doctor fees!!

A sad and worried Jew once came to visit the Chazon Ish (Rav Yeshaya Karelitz) in Bnei Brak. When the man entered, the Chazon Ish was saying the Asher Yatzar Bracha. He pronounced each word slowly and clearly.

The man couldn't contain himself any longer and blurted out, "My child has polio and the doctors say there's no hope."

The Chazon Ish emphasized the last words of the bracha, "Who heals all flesh and acts wonderously."

The Chazon Ish then turned to the man and said, "So, you hear that Hashem does wonders."

This is all the Chazon Ish said to the man.

The child had a completely recovery.

Dr. Kenneth M. Prager, M.D., states; "(While).. in medical school .. I first began to understand the appropriateness of this short prayer.... After seeing patients whose lives revolved around their dialysis machines, and while caring for patients with colostomies and urinary catheters, I realized how wise the Rabbis had been [to institute this prayer]."

The Bracha of Asher Yatzar is now available in a beautiful color poster (side one) beautiful color poster side two  format, suitable for posting in the home or in public places, and in a pocket-sized edition, all especially designed to increase kavana when reciting the bracha. The posters are available in several sizes and nuschaot and translated into numerous languages.
