of biochemistry phasing which claims that human beings experience three
biological cycles that are able to be charted as: (1) a twenty-three day
cycle of physical strength, energy, endurance, (2) a twenty-eight day cycle
of emotional sensitivity, intuition, creative ability, (3) a thirty-three
day cycle of mental activity, reasoning, ambition.
Charting these cycles serves the purpose of indicating the individual's
maximum and minimum potential in any of the three cycles as well as the
greatest days of stress when there is an intersection of two or three cycles.
It is thought an individual can be aware of his best and worst days in order
to achieve maximum success and confidence on his best days and to avoid
becoming over stressed on his worst. The theory is an attractive one since
it relates well with the biochemical cycles of the human body, especially
the menstrual cycle in women. There is considerable empirical validation
for claims made for biorhythm. The theory was discovered by Dr. William
Fleiss of Germany.
Since body cycles relate to birth dates, the system of biorhythm is analogous
to medical astrology. Many doctors use it in diagnostic work. Businesses
use it in predicting future productivity and earnings. Even football games
have been predicted by the use of biorhythm. Billie Jean King won her greatest
tennis match against Bobby Riggs on a "high" day. It is said that
both Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe committed suicide on critical days.
The Omi Railway in Japan achieved an accident-free safety record with the
use of biorhythm. Some 5000 other Japanese companies also employ biorhythm
as well as European airlines and transportation systems in other companies.
