A Bone To Pick

  ורפא ירפא


 The Mahril said that all  Refuos and Lachashim  mentioned in Shas, are forbidden to be practiced.

 It only works in certain conditions.  Someone who will try it and if it won’t work  might ridicule Chazal.


 There is one exception, and that is if someone has a (fish) bone stuck in his throat.
 The Gemoro ( Shabbos 67a) says that he should bring another bone and place it on the back of his head
 and say" חד חד נחית בלע בלע נחית חד חד"
 This Lachash is allowed because it is Boduk Umenuso (guaranteed) to work in all conditions."

 I once heard that this Lachash only works if you use the Sefardic Havarah (accent).

 The Ches and the Ayin (from chad, nochis and bola) are pronounced from deep inside the throat.

 Pronouncing these two letters (sefardi accent) manipulates the throat, so that the bone will dislodge
