Simply stated, Biorhythms are rhythms or cycles that our bodies follow.

While many biological rhythms are easy to see and have been subject to much
research, biorhythms (physical, emotional, and intellectual) are the least
studied of all human cycles.

It is easy to observe the 24 hour cycle of sleep and activity that animal
life follows. Less obvious but also easily observed are the 24 hour cycles
of body temperature, blood pressure, brain activity, and many other physical
characteristics. These 24 hour cycles are called CIRCADIAN, from the Latin
(circa) meaning AROUND, and (dies) meaning THE DAY.

Other cycles are also found in the functions of the body, and occur over
different time spans than the 24 hour cycle. For example; brain waves also
show INFRADIAN rhythms which take less than a day to complete, and there are
also rhythms (SUPRADIAN) that occur over time spans greater than 24 hours.

Biorhythms were first discovered in the late 1800's by two different men;
Dr. Hermann Swoboda, professor of psychology at the University of Vienna;
and Dr. Wilhelm fliess, an eminent nose and throat specialist in Berlin who
later became president of the German Academy of Sciences. A third researcher
from Austria by the name of Alfred Teltscher collected further information,
and played a critical role in developing the biorhythm theory as it is known
today.

Although some progress has been made in the understanding of the three great
rhythms of life, the precise workings of the human mind, body, etc., which
determine the rhythms still remain obscure. The three great rhythms are
interdependant, with none of them being so strong as to overwhelm the other
two. They alway act in concert as to how they affect us. And as to the
degree of their effect on us; this still remains an area of controversy and
somewhat varied interpretation. Your experience with your own biorhythm
chart can clarify what those readings mean for you.

The three biorhythms begin at birth and continue regularly thereafter for
the rest of your life. They start in the positive phase, which is why they
can be plotted by just knowing a person's date of birth.

The Physical Rhythm
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The physical rhythm is the shortest and completes it's cycle every 23 days.
During the first half of it's cycle it is in the positive phase, and that is
when we are at our strongest. We have more energy, more endurance, better
coordination, and generally speaking are in better physical condition.

During the second half of it's cycle the body is recharging and storing up
energy. We tire more easily, require more rest, and are less likely to have
the same vigor in performing tasks as we would in our positive phase. We
basicly experience a reduction in physical potential. This is the negative
phase of our physical cycle.

The "Critical" days are experienced when the rhythm is changing from the
positive phase to the negative phase or changing from the negative phase to
the positive phase. This is when the physical rhythm becomes erratic and
unstable, and using extra caution is extremely important.

The Emotional Rhythm
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The emotional rhythm completes it's cycle every 28 days. During the first
half of the cycle we are more inclined to react in a positive manner to most
events. Our reactions tend to be more constructive, and we get along with
others and ourselves better. It is the best time for doing things that
require a positive attitude, cooperation, and creativity. This is the high
or positive phase of our emotional cycle.

During the second half of the emotional cycle in which our emotional powers
are being recharged, our judgement can be effected by our feelings in a
negative manner. It can be a poor time to perform tasks in which danger is
involved, and swift and/or sound judgement is required. We are more apt to
be short-tempered and negative. We don't do as well in activities requiring
teamwork and cooperation. It is not the best time for making personal or
business related decisions. This is the negative phase of the emotional
cycle.

The "Critical" days are experienced when the rhythm is changing from the
positive phase to the negative phase or changing from the negative phase to
the positive phase, as with the other two biorhythms. These days can carry
much more danger than the negative phase of the cycle. The characteristics
of the negative phase are greatly intensified, and we are more vulnerable to
self-inflicted harm, violent disagreements, and a short-temperedness that
may appear completely irrational to others. All available precaution should
be taken on this day.

The Intellectual Rhythm
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The intellectual cycle was the last of the three to be discovered, and this
is probably why it has received the least attention. Little is known about
it, aside from the most essential aspects that it displays. The intellectual
rhythm completes its cycle every 33 days. During the positive phase or the
first half of the cycle, our minds are more clear and open. Our memory is
more retentive, and our ability to combine ideas and understanding is at its
peak. This is the best time for encountering new situations where quick
understanding and adaptation is desired. This is also the best time to get
the most out of reading and education.

During the second half of the cycle or negative phase, there is less desire
to deal openly with new situations or learning experiences. We lack the high
levels of intellectual energy required to accomplish mental tasks with ease,
and find it harder to concentrate or think things through with the optimum
level of clarity.

The "Critical" days are experienced when the rhythm is changing from the
positive phase to the negative phase or vice versa, as with the other two
biorhythms. Precautions should be taken when we are in situations that
require our intellectual acuity. It is wise to avoid making important
decisions, discussing matters of vital importance, or analyzing matters of
concern.

Other Facters
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As you track your biorhythm, you may find that the rhythms appear to be off
by a day. Various facters can be involved, such as being born very late at
night in which case your biorhythm may need to be figured from the day
following your birthdate. If your biorhythm appears to be slightly off, the
best way to find what adjustment (if any) is needed is to keep a diary for a
couple of months. If you find that your critical days seem to fall a day
ahead or a day behind of those on your chart, change your birthdate in the
Daily BioRhythm configuration file to a day ahead or a day behind your
actual birthdate.

A Final Word
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Biorhythms should not be used to control our lives, but should be used to
enhance our daily living. Enjoy!

FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY MAKE A BACKUP COPY of the original diskette (or
file if downloaded from a BBS) before you do anything. Put the original in
a safe place, and use the copy as the master disk when you install the
program.

You may have to first uncompress the program from a Zip, Arj, or other
compressed file type if downloaded from a BBS.

Go to the directory containing the Daily BioRhythm files, and at the DOS
prompt type INSTALL .

The installation program will prompt you for the directory to install
Daily BioRhythm to. (If the directory doesn't exist, it will be created
for you.) To choose the program's default directory (C:\DAYBIO) simply
press enter.

The installation program will then run the Daily BioRhythm configuration
program for you, which requests your name and birthdate, and then records
the information in the file 23D_BIO.CFG. (23D_BIO.CFG is the file that
Daily BioRhythm reads your birth data from to compute your Daily BioRhythm!)

After the installation program has finished it's job, go to the directory
C:\DAYBIO (or whatever directory you chose to have the program installed
to) and at the DOS prompt type DAYBIO23. Daily BioRhythm will then run
and show you your BioRhythm for the day, plus what it all means. That's all
there is to it!

If you want to see your Daily BioRhythm each time you boot up your computer,
use a text editor and add this line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT:

C:\DAYBIO\DAYBIO23

or if you installed Daily BioRhythm to a different directory, use the
appropriate path; for example if you had installed it to the directory
D:\MYBIO, then the line you would add to your AUTOEXEC.BAT would be:

D:\MYBIO\DAYBIO23

NOTE: Daily BioRhythm uses the system's date to compute your chart. If the
date on your system is set incorrectly, then an incorrect BioRhythm
chart will be displayed. The system date MUST BE CORRECTLY SET to
the current date in order for Daily BioRhythm to display your correct
chart for the day.

W H A T I S S H A R E W A R E ?
****************************************************************************


Shareware is not a type of software, but rather it is simply a form of
marketing by which a customer has the opportunity to try out the software
buying it. Unlike commercial software where you pay the full price before
using it, with Shareware the customer uses the software for a trial period
and THEN decides whether or not it is what he or she wants BEFORE paying the
registration fee for the software. This ensures the customer is buying what
he or she wants, rather than taking the risk of being stuck with an unwanted
package that can't be returned after the wrapping has been opened.

Most Shareware is freely distributed with a limited evaluation period. If
the software is right for you, then you register with the publisher or
author. If the software is not what you want, simply erase it from your
disk. In other words, YOU GET TO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Programs marketed through the shareware concept are copyrighted and are thus
protected by US Copyright law. Unregistered users who continue to use a
shareware program beyond the shareware author's stated evaluation period are
in violation of US federal law.

If you obtained a shareware program on disk from a disk vendor, you DID NOT
pay for the program. What you paid was a disk copying and distribution fee.
That is why the price for the disk was so low (usually about $5.00). This
fee covers their costs for copying the disks, mailing costs, etc. Even so,
most Shareware programs cost less to register than the purchase price of
their commercial counterparts. And, in quality, many Shareware programs
equal or surpass that of their commercial counterparts.
