Have you ever had a really bad day?
Maybe you tripped over the cat as you were getting out of bed, ran
out of gas on the way to work because you forgot that you needed to
fill up, botched up a major project that the boss was counting on you
to get right, and burned dinner. When it was all said and done, you
probably wished that you had just stayed in bed that morning.
We all have days like that to some extent. But we also have good
days. They might not stand out in our minds like the bad ones do,
but everyone has them.
So why are some days horrible and others stellar?
Many of us blame it on fate. But what if I told you that you could
avoid having bad days? What if you could prevent even the most
devastating of mistakes, improving both your physical and mental
health in the process?
You’re probably thinking, “Yeah, that would be nice, but I don’t have
a crystal ball.” But you don’t need one. All you need to turn those
bad days into good days is a basic understanding of biorhythms and
how to use them to your advantage. There is no rocket science
involved, just a few calculations that you don’t necessarily even have
to do yourself.
Would you like to learn more? In this report, we’ll go over the
history and concepts of biorhythms and discuss how you can use
them to change your life for the better.
Is This Biorhythm Stuff for Real?
Most people have heard of biorhythms at some point in their lives,
but many just brush them off as fiction. They lump the concept into
the same category as the daily horoscope, a fun diversion with very
little basis in fact. They are often surprised to learn just how much
research has gone into the concept of biorhythms, and that they
have been used successfully to optimize performance for many years.
Here is a little bit of background information on the discovery and
research of biorhythms.
Biorhythms were discovered around the turn of the twentieth
century. Dr. Wilhelm Fliess, an ear and throat specialist at the
University of Berlin, was one of the early pioneers of the concept. He
noticed patterns in his patients’ symptoms and had a mathematician
take a look at them. They found that the sickness cycle was different
for men and women. He discussed his findings with his friend at the
University of Vienna, Dr. Sigmund Freud.
Another early biorhythm researcher was Dr. Hermanna Swoboda, a
psychology professor at the University of Vienna. He found patterns
in pain, swelling, fevers and heart attacks that were identical to those
proposed by Fliess. He also found that the male cycle was related to
certain traits associated with males, while the female cycle was
related to certain traits associated with females. In addition, he
found a correlation between dreams and thought processes and
biological cycles, and proposed the theory of “critical” days, which
are very important in biorhythm awareness.
Although the traits associated with these two cycles were considered
male and female, the researchers believed that both rhythms
pertained to both sexes. Sex hormones had not yet been the subject
of studies at that time, but it was later found that hormones
associated with both sexes are produced in every human body, male
or female. The so-called male cycle was then associated with the
male hormone levels, and the female cycle with female hormone
Dr. Friedrich Teltscher of the University of Innsbruck also studied
biorhythms through experiments on 5,000 students. This led to the
discovery of a new biorhythm: The intellectual cycle. Dr. Lexford
Hersey of the University of Pennsylvania confirmed the existence of
all three of these biorhythm cycles through efficiency and accident
prevention experiments involving railway workers.
Dr. Hans Swing at the Swiss National Institute of Technology did a
study of 700 accidents and 300 deaths in 1939. He determined that
401 of the accidents and 197 of the deaths were related to
unfavorable biorhythms. That works out to 57% and 66%,
Other studies include one involving the sanitation department of the
city of Hanover. It was determined that 83% of the garbage and
watering truck accidents in the city occurred on caution days. Yet
another study, performed by Dr. Reinhold Bochow in Berlin, involved
499 agricultural accidents. He found that 62% of the accidents
studied were related to biorhythms.
In addition to the physical, emotional and intellectual cycles, several
other biorhythm cycles have been proposed and even charted. But
these original three are the only ones that have been subjected to
intense scientific study, and therefore the only ones that have been
proven valid. That’s not to say that none of the others have merit,
just that they haven’t been studied sufficiently.
There has been much debate over the years about the validity of
biorhythms as a whole. While most scientists and medical
professionals agree that man’s physical and emotional states are
always fluctuating, not all agree that they fluctuate in accordance
with regular cycles that begin at birth. But as you can see, there are
numerous studies that support the principles of biorhythms.
Notable Uses of Biorhythms
A concept as useful as biorhythm awareness is bound to get some
attention from corporations, governments, celebrities, professional
athletes and more. Biorhythms have been used by these sectors on
numerous occasions for a variety of purposes over the years. A few
German Olympic coaches have used biorhythms in the
selection and training of players. This helped them find
teammates who were capable of working together and
schedule their training for maximum benefit.
Many doctors and dentists have used biorhythms to schedule
risky procedures such as surgery. This reduced the incidence
of complications and death. It also resulted in the patients
suffering less pain.
Some airlines have used biorhythms to schedule flights for
their pilots in an effort to minimize human error. A few other
transportation businesses have discovered how useful
biorhythms are as well.
Biorhythms have also received a considerable amount of attention in
the media. They have linked biorhythms to a number of events in
the lives of famous persons. For example, did you know that:
