Effects of Lunar Eclipses on Health


Effects of Lunar Eclipses on Health - Super blue blood moon phenomenon that occurred on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, is a rare phenomenon awaited by many people. Due to three phenomena of the moon at a time, the blue moon or the full moon phenomenon that occurs twice in a calendar month. A supermoon is when the position of the moon is closer to the earth. And blood moon when the shadow of the earth covering the moon surface so as to bring red color on the surface of the moon

At the time of a total lunar eclipse, the reflected sunlight of the moon is obstructed by the position of the earth. The lunar eclipse itself is divided into a total lunar eclipse, where the entire moonlight will be blocked, and a partial lunar eclipse, when only part of the moonlight is obstructed.

While the supermoon, the moon is closest to the earth so it looks 30% brighter and 14% bigger.

Speaking of the total lunar eclipse and the supermoon, there are several articles and health journals that discuss the influence of the moon on the health of the body. These include:

1. Influence on sleep patterns

In one Swiss study published in the journal Current Biology, the study participants were collected in a sleep laboratory, where there were no clocks or outside lights. Participants are encouraged to sleep and wake up as usual.

The researchers found that at four days before and after the full moon, the participants took 5 minutes longer to fall asleep, had a 20-minute decrease in sleep duration, and experienced a 30% decrease in sleep phase, on average.

2. An increase in the number of births

A study conducted at a private hospital in Kyoto, Japan, which investigated 1,000 normal births without maternal induction, found that more babies were born at the time of the moon's position closer to Earth.

However, no explanation or causal relationship has been found regarding this linkage.

3. Regulation of the menstrual cycle

The menstrual cycle in women of reproductive age generally lasts for 28 days, which is similar to the number of days on the lunar calendar. However, there is likely to be a closer relationship between the month and the menstrual cycle.

A study conducted in 2011 and published in the journal Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica records the menstrual cycle of 826 women aged 16 to 25 years. The results show that nearly 30% of women experience menstruation during the full moon.

However, when compared to other calendar phases of the moon, a maximum of 12.5% ​​of women who experience menstruation at the same time.


However, results from other studies that examine similar topics show high variability, and further research is needed to be able to confirm this association.

Similarly, the relationship between month and health has been reviewed in several journals and health articles. However, to ensure the impact of the moon on health, further research is needed.
