"The LifeWaves[R] Program attempts to honor natural cycles by nudging your overly civilized life back to a healthier oscillation. Roughly four weeks per month, Cycles[TM] has you exercise between 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. one week, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. the next week and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the next. On the fourth week, you rest or simply resume your normal activity. This is all done in conjunction with the moon, since our ancestral genetic expression developed in accordance with the lunar cycle. As the full moon wanes, we hibernate a bit and rest, since over the ages, humankind obviously partied hard with the full moon's available light.

Perhaps the most attractive feature of the LifeWaves[R] Program is the recommendation of short, 15-minute to half-hour naps after lunch. The normal afternoon dip in circadian rhythm is confirmed by research showing a quick nap produces renewed creativity and productivity (Refinetti 2001)."

The creator of this bogus technique had his sanity questioned at the hearing that revoked his New York State medical license.[citation needed] Nonetheless the concept has strong intellectual drawing power due to the usually non-linear mathematics of biological systems. For example: An individual's circadian rhythm is analogous to a swing and a correctly timed push will cause a swing to move far more than one that isn't. So it is entirely plausible that timing exercise or nutrition right could have an enhanced benefit. Unfortunately no real research has been done on this aside from LifeWave's hilarious study with 10 middle aged women.
