What Are Biorhythms?
Biorhythms can predict lucky and unlucky periods in a person’s life. There are days when a person is on a high, the sun is shining, and every question on Jeopardy is easy. There are days when it is raining and no amount of help allows the deciphering of a Wheel of Fortune word. Theory says that these days can be predicted by using biorhythms.
Biorhythm is the charting of the cycles of the body. Three cycles exist in the charting. Those cycles are physical, emotional, and intellectual. Each of these cycles has a different time span. The physical cycle is 23 days, the emotional cycle is 28 days, and the intellectual cycle is 33 days.
A high point on an intellectual cycle should produce good results at the decision making involved in such as sports betting or horse race betting. A high point in the physical cycle should show days of increased stamina and produce more winning results in extended sessions. A high point in the emotional cycle should produce more equanimity at the ups and downs experienced at a blackjack table.
Each time span begin at birth and continues throughout one's llife.
How Biorhythms Work
Consider each cycle to be like a roller coaster ride. When the cycle begins, it drags the individual up a long grade and then over the top to an exhilarating downhill ride ending in the valley where it begins another upward trek. There are three points of note in each cycle. At the top of the climb, there is a point where a rider’s view is almost unlimited and they are looking forward in anticipation to the exciting ride. As the ride plummets, it reaches a point where anticipation turns almost to dread and nausea tends to creep in as it crosses the center line. Then the ride bottoms out and in dismay the rider realizes the thrill is over but he can look forward to it beginning again..
Biorhythm works the same way. It can be plotted on a graph and will look like a roller coaster design. The topmost point of the ride is a great point in the curve. As it goes downward, it crosses the median point and this is a critical point of indecision. The bottom of the curve just as it starts upward really is the pits.

A person’s chart begins on the day they are born. Every 23 days, the physical cycle rises to its peak, plummets back through the central time line, bottoms out in the pit, and then rises to the time line. This same roller coaster ride takes place in the emotional cycle every 28 days, and in the intellectual cycle every 33 days.
All three cycle charts can be drawn and overlaid. The good times of the highs and the bad times of the lows are now tripled. In addition, there are three times when plotted lines cross the time line. When individually plotted lines crosses the other plotted lines must also be considered.
It sounds like a very complex procedure but there are several free services available on line that will chart a biorhythm at no cost. Most search engines will deliver internet addresses of these free sites. The charting site that I have used the most is very straightforward in that it requires a date of birth, the date you are interested in finding out about. It then produces a biorhythm chart of the three cycles that surround the target date. This is, as I said earlier, a free service.
Using The Biorhythm Chart
The cycles should be plotted initially for at least a 33 day period. In this fashion, all three cycles will go through at least one complete run up and down and back to the beginning.
It is very straightforward to make use of the plotted chart.
Rule 1 - Do not gamble on any day where any plotted line crosses the time line or any day where any plotted line crosses another plotted line.
Rule 2 - Be aware and limit activity when any of the three cycles are bottoming out. Some discretion should be exercised in making this judgment. It’s probably wise to refrain completely if all three cycles are below the time line. It the user is a table games player or a video poker player where intellect comes into play, the intellectual line should be considered. If the user is a slot player, then more attention should be paid to the emotional cycle. Long sessions should not be attempted when the physical cycle in bottoming out.
Mixed cycles and examples occur. For instance, if the intellectual cycle is bottoming but the emotional cycle and physical cycle are both above the time line, you might refrain from playing blackjack or poker or betting on the horses but instead play a slot machine or roulette.
Rule 3 - Be confident and comfortable when the appropriate cycle is well above the time line. If multiple cycles are above the time line, more confidence is warranted.
I just charted my biorhythm. The physical and emotional cycles are generally together and swinging high above the center line. The intellectual cycle is at an almost exactly opposite swing and is well below the center line. I probably would not do things that require a lot of thinking - such as blackjack or horse race selection. I would enjoy sitting at a video poker machine for a longer period of time and using the almost automatic responses to various card combinations that I have learned.
Biorhythms are an interesting phenomenon that have not been proven. That is not to say that they don’t work because I have seen startling results. My experience has been that the critical and bad times are the parts of the cycles more appropriately used as diagnostic tools and if all three cycles are crossing the center line at near the same time, the individual should hide in bed and pull the covers over their head.
