Biorhythms and Daily Life Â Abstract: The knowledge of biorhythms, or the body's natural cycles, can be applied to numerous aspects of daily life. Biorhythms have medical, occupational, and recreational uses which allow for the maximization of healthy, productive life through understanding and application. Â Biorhythms, as described by other members of this research team, are the natural cycles of the human body. Most important to this undertaking are circadian rhythms, those which repeat roughly every 24 hours. Obvious examples include sleep cycles and temperature fluctuations; more subtle types of circadian rhythms are hormone production and cell division patterns. The scientific community's growing understanding of these everyday phenomenon has resulted in newfound comprehension of many aspects of our lives, including medicine, work, and recreation. Â The most striking advances enable by biorhythmic research have come in the area of medicine. Chronotherapuetics, or the synchronization of treatment with body rhythms, is perhaps the most rapidly growing field of medicine. Increasingly, pharmaceutical companies, research centers and individual doctors have begun to consider the body's flux when prescribing medical treatment. Many chronic ailments have direct connections to biorhythms, and by utilizing new treatments which acknowledge this potential tool, doctors anticipate that many sufferers formerly resigned to coping with perpetual hardship will be able to lead relatively normal lives. A prime example of chronotherapeutics involves arthritis treatment. Depending upon the type or arthritis (rheumatoid or osteoarthritis), medication can be timed to relieve the symptoms when they are the most severe:... ...Johnson's record breaking dash, Michelle Smith's aquatic brilliance, the dominance of the Chinese dive team, in addition to countless other impressive performances, all happened in the afternoon or evening, when the athletes' bodies were primed to perform. Even non-world class athletes benefit from this knowledge. Rather than subject yourself to an early morning run, a better decision would be to wait until evening, when your body is ready for the physical stress that accompanies exercise and exertion. Â In conclusion, then, it has been demonstrated that understanding of biorhythms can be utilized in numerous ways, all of which improve daily life. Through precision treatment of medical ailments, compensation for occupational stress, and maximization of athletic potential, biorhythms are an integral part of our daily lives and effect us in much of what we do.
