History of biorhythms?

The first set of research centered on certain "rhythms" or "life cycles" began in the nineteenth century and were effectively dubbed Biorhythms. The name "biorhythm" is made up of two Greek words: "bios" and "rhythmos," which signify "life" and a steady or periodic "rhythm," respectively.

The first set of research centered on certain "rhythms" or "life cycles" began in the nineteenth century and were effectively dubbed Biorhythms. The name "biorhythm" is made up of two Greek words: "bios" and "rhythmos," which signify "life" and a steady or periodic "rhythm," respectively. The notion of Biorhythms describes and quantifies three primary human cycles: physical, emotional, and intellectual.

In 1890, Wilhelm Fliess, a respected and well-known Berlin doctor, began a pioneering research on biorhythms. Fliess began collecting information on periodic recurrence of fevers, child diseases, and propensity to sickness and mortality after observing 23 and 28 day cycles in his own patients. Fliess claimed he had investigated key "periods" in human life using these statistics.



Following this, Dr. Fliess established two of the primary biorhythm ideas. The first contends that Nature endowed man with a "body clock" that begins when he is born and continues throughout his life. The second confirms that one of these body clocks, set for 23-day cycles, regulates the physical cycle while the other, set for 28-day cycles, influences the individual's emotional state and level of sensitivity.
One of Fleiss' contemporaries had a significant role in embracing these concepts. He was Sigmund Freud, a guy with far-reaching thoughts for his day. Freud expressed significant interest in and enthusiasm for Fliess' views early in his career, and the two became close friends.

In the scientific community, important ideas tend to spread swiftly. Dr. Hermann Swoboda, a Professor of Psychology at Vienna University, first learned about Fleiss' work while he was a teenager. He explored, examined, and published about Biorhythms around the turn of the century.

He explored, examined, and published about Biorhythms around the turn of the century. Swoboda was convinced of the reality of Fleiss' findings in cycles of 23 and 28 days after noticing regularity in dreams and certain mental processes, fevers, asthma, heart attacks, and diseases.

Dr. Wilhelm Fliess found similar patterns in the case histories of his patients at the turn of the century. He noticed active and passive periods in individuals' physical, emotional, and mental states. He deduced the theory of biorhythms from these observations: the physical curve has a cycle of 23 days, the emotional curve has a cycle of 28 days, and the mental curve has a cycle of 33 days.

A "high" in the corresponding field occurs when the curve of any cycle is above the midline (physical, emotional or mental). If it is the physical curve, you will feel physically good, and your body will be more silent, for example, if you undergo an operation. If it is the emotional curve, you will be in a pleasant mood and will have excellent interactions with others. If it's the mental curve, your cognitive processes will be sharper, focus will be easier, and you'll likely have a lot of ideas and insights.

A "low" in the corresponding field occurs when the curve of any cycle is below the midline. If you are experiencing a physical low, you may feel weak and listless; if you are experiencing an emotional low, you may feel unpleasant and out of sorts; and if you are experiencing a mental low, your thinking may be muddled and focus difficult.

When either of the curves crosses the midline, it is a crucial moment in the associated field, and when two curves cross the midline at the same place, it is an extremely important time. When you are critical in the physical sector, you may feel weary, and it is best to avoid physical exertion and procedures. When you are critical in the emotional area, you may feel angry and melancholy, and emotional outbursts are possible, so avoid disagreements and fights. Critical thought eventually leads to sluggish thinking, and it is best to postpone things that need a lot of focus.

The average (yellow bar) is the sum of the three levels "physical," "emotional," and "intellectual." Its level can be utilized to interpret your general state of well-being or health.

Biorhythms cannot anticipate or explain occurrences; they can only advise us on how to deal with them. Some physicians, for example, organize procedures around them, and sports coaches include them into their specific training plans. But whether you believe them or not is entirely up to you.


Do you have faith in biorhythms?
I treat them in the same manner that I do the weather forecast: I always watch them again «nonetheless»!
