We are fascinated with mind power, but what about body power over that mind? Isn’t a body our true confinement and the most demanding circumstance? We serve the immediate needs of the body our entire existence. There is no escape, freedom or choice. We are what we eat; we are what we think; and we can hardly think of anything else under the pressure of an unsatisfied, immediate need of a body. This beautiful beast—our body—instantly turns us from a caregiver to a burden when we, for instance, break only one of our 206 bones.

Would you prefer another body if you only could choose? If anybody heard “No” to this question, drop me a line. The nature’s finest creations carry a readily available list of imperfections, starting with their ideal nose: “How come you don’t see those pores?” Apparently, the fundamental desire for a healthy and beautiful body is second to none.

Almost the entire budget goes into adamantly obliging a beautiful beast: it needs a warm home, soft bed, quiet room, running water, light, electricity, transportation and tons of electronics to cut down on the movements the majesty needs to make to otherwise serve itself. We also are told to exercise bodies after they successfully managed to escape all that natural exercise. And now we must generate income to support it all.
Editor's letter Aida Poulsen, Editor in Chief of Healthy Living Magazine
Body forms our mind through many ways; social influences top the list of the least justifiable. Humans’ initial acceptance or rejection, triggered by appearances alone, may discourage from achieving or create a room of opportunity in one’s mind.
Despite the consolation of inner beauty, our look has a concrete footprint perception in minds of people around us and defines the trade for a sexual partner, another fundamental craving of a body—its reproductive instinct. Living organisms with syngenesis are genetically attracted to an appearance of perfect health; our subconscious scans for reproductive benefits and doesn’t comply when its narrow conscious has other plans.

Whenever we are attracted, our body spots a set of genes which it perceives as better than ours, and therefore worth hunting for, and our body fuels with emotions its zillion years old survival program to manufacture a better genetic set than the existing one by coupling with it. For future generations and not quite for our immediate happiness.
Body is a tyrant and a dictator. Can I dance Swan Lake? Or at least surf? Okay, can I… swim in the US continental Pacific more than two minutes? And I did not even ask yet for flying…
The more we live the more we uncover how fragile this confinement holds us. Body may, at its own discretion, exercise authority to imprison us, punishing misbehavior or unjustifiably. Body may graciously bless with a glimpse of the heights of earthly pleasure, if only it condescends to function well. Everyone has been through a failure of some non-major function of a body, and it made us feel it all. The instinctive desire of never feeling it again and increase the value of the genetic match makes us anxiously grab a health magazine to be guided and educated.

We are abusing journalist privileges to test drive Tesla on the Pacific Coast Highway to have a blast, umm, sorry, to report on the performance of the world’s healthiest car.
We put our long noses into the kitchen of Brooke’s lifetime friend, Michael Jackson, with his celebrity chef, to bring you the recipe of his favorite dish. Want to guess why Los Angeles is obsessing over healthy living? Read Kai Chase’s interview.
We risk our lives on a Jamaican villa to 24-hour care of a chef, concierge and maid attached to it. Well, at least we got into where James Bond wasn’t allowed—inside the cage with monsters—the largest Jamaican crocodiles—where Live and Let Die was filmed with a stunt double and 007 taking over outside the cage. You can admire the stunning looks of our green model in “Jamaica Irresistible.”
We do it all for you, and we are anxiously waiting to hear from you, even if only for your noble indignation. Write to me directly.
