The Philosophy

The philosophy behind The Forgiving Body is a simple one, it embodies the journey of healing. The body will reset to a default, it will pardon past errors, absolve wrong doings, omit discrepancies, forgive poor habits, if we give it exactly what it needs.

Built within each of our incredible bodies is a mechanism of healing. The process of healing is exclusive to the body. Healing can not be bought – the body heals on its own. Even after major surgery or a course of antibiotics, the body still has the task of healing itself and restoring itself to its homeostatic balance. So doctors, pharmacists & other healthcare professionals have their place in the healing process but ultimately it is up to the body to be come WHOLE again.

The website deals with mechanisms for engaging healing. Regardless of what the body has been made to endure whether illness, disease, damage, turmoil, ageing or heartache, if the individual gives the body a chance to heal itself, it will! Why because our body is so forgiving.

Take for example the scrapped knee of a five year old body or the bruised eye of a boxer or the chef who accidentally touches a hot surface. It hurts but almost instantly the body puts up its defence mechanisms, the five year old boy holds out his hands to brace his fall, the boxer recoils to protect himself and the chef in a split second removes his hand from the surface. We don’t need to think about it but almost immediately the body reacts. All sickness is the same, the body has an inner defence mechanism built to protect us and it engages itself almost immediately to achieve optimal conditions for healing.

The Forgiving Body focuses on chronic, incurable illness where the knife can only attempt to solve or the tablet can soothe symptoms. If we establish a set of parameters that allow the body to heal itself, it will. The body will do what it is designed to do best that is to repair, restore and rejuvenate. This philosophy does not intend on competing with the current healthcare system, there is a place in healing for the knife and the tablet. But rather the philosophy seeks as an adjuvant to the current medical system in place, not in isolation, but hand in hand.

The main aim is to holistically address the root cause of the problem. It is so important to listen to the intellect of our bodies because the body gives us signs to direct us in our journey of healing. Be sensitive to the needs of your body by taking the time to get to know the science behind your needs.

The Forgiving Body follows the path of sages, scientists, and explorers. The journey is ongoing, this is a personal invitation to join the journey of finding out how forgiving your body truly can be.

Remember forgivingness starts from a place deep within, so be kind to yourself & listen to your body and reap the rewards of allowing your inner most mechanisms to do what they are best designed to do.

Repair, Restore, Rejuvenate.

In line with the World Health Organisation (WHO) we believe that: Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. (This website is not associated with WHO)

WHO definition of Health

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

The correct bibliographic citation for the definition is:

Preamble to the Constitution of the World Health Organization as adopted by the International Health Conference, New York, 19-22 June, 1946; signed on 22 July 1946 by the representatives of 61 States (Official Records of the World Health Organization, no. 2, p. 100) and entered into force on 7 April 1948.

The Definition has not been amended since 1948.


The forgiving body aims at addressing the core essentials of what enables healing, rejuvenation and longevity. The entire concept is based around forgiveness. Forgiveness involves first a cleansing, then a repair and finally a restoration.  This philosophy means we understand people have physical, emotional and spiritual needs and their relations to God, themselves, their families and society are vital to health and healing.  Finally, we believe all people are created in the image of God.  All human beings live under God’s care and must be treated with dignity and respect.

” My final work is a word of warning to American women (all women & men) : Keep away from the Swamis, the Yogis, the traveling teaching men. You would need no such bidding if, for an instant, you guessed the truth. In your good faith, in your eager- minded receptivity of high-sounding doctrine, in your hunger for colour, romance, glamour, and dreams come true, you expose yourself, all unsuspecting, to things that, if you knew them, would kill you dead with unmerited shame. ”
