Beware! Sleeping In North Can Cause You Brain Haemorrhage.
We’ve all been told that we shouldn’t sleep with our head towards the North, but how many of you know the reason behind this? If you are living in the northern hemisphere and your head is facing north while sleeping then beware it can cause you Brain Haemorrhage and if your face is in the south while sleeping in the southern hemisphere it can cause you the same.
In this article, I’m going to elaborate the scientific facts behind this. In India, we often hear from our parents saying that you should stop sleep in the North while facing your head in the North. At that time, we were unable to understand the facts behind this but today we are able to know the facts behind this. Now let us objectively look into the real scenario.
As we all know, there are four hemispheres in the world namely Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western. There are two poles in the world North and South. These poles create a magnetic field around the earth in North and South direction.
Our heart is situated in the 2/3 part of the body. It is very easy for the heart to pump blood below the heart because of Gravitational Force. The arteries below the heart are thick because it can easily get the blood while the arteries above the heart are thin because Heart has to put extra pleasure to push the blood upwards as it pushes the blood in opposite direction of the gravitational force.
If you know a bit about Geography you might have heard that the north pole is pushing the south pole towards it! The Indian subcontinent is shifting to the North Pole every single year. The Indian subcontinent is shifting approximately 4CM to the North Pole. So, there is a huge pressure present in the North Pole. Now imagine if you are in Northern Hemisphere, the magnetic field of earth pushes the blood towards the brain in the north if you are sleeping with your head in the North, the Brain will get an overabundance of Blood and you can get Brain Haemorrhage.
The thin blood vessels can’t handle the extra blood that your Heart is pushing towards the Brain and if the arteries in the brain are weak you can get Brain Haemorrhage. If you sleep for a longer time in North you will feel anxiety, mental disorder, imbalance of blood in your Brain. The blood vessels are too thin in the brain so it cannot handle the extra blood.
So, which is the best direction to sleep in? The answer is East.If you sleep in the East the magnetic field is minimum and you get minimum pressure in your brain.
