Abstract:

The importance of rhythm in the normal function of the human body is pointed up. The differing course of the rhythms of the individual organs is indicated and the control of the body rhythm is discussed. Here, the leading role of the vegetative nervous system and the diencephalon is emphasized. Damage due to failure to observe the rhythm in connection with operations is explained. General principles are set up for surgical action in order to meet the dangers of disrhythmia. The special role of eurhythmia in the regeneration of damaged tissues is illustrated with the help of fracture treatment, giving special consideration to Sudecks dystrophy. To prove this thesis, artificially created fractures on chicken legs sic were treated under eurhythmic and disrhythmic conditions. The comparison of the results achieved proves the great significance of eurhythmia for the regeneration of damaged tissues. Author
