The worlds only Orthodox Jewish Rabbi who is not only an acclaimed author and spiritual guide, but also a certified health coach, fitness trainer and nutritionist with a truly holistic approach to body-soul health and well-being.
Through decades of education and experience, American-born Rabbi Lazer Brody has devoted his life to helping others cope with the massive pressures of modern life as they affect both emotional and physical health. He is no stranger to dealing with ultra-high pressure and stress, as a two-war combat veteran of the Israel Defense Forces, having served his country in regular and reserve duty for over 29 years.
