Many of us have heard about myths surrounding the aspects of eclipses but rare are those who truly acknowledges the real effects of this natural phase on human health. While many believe in lot of traditional rituals on these days, ancient scientific, believes which might have been lost in course of time, are now being supported by modern science today.
Eclipses ( Solar and Lunar ) and Solar Flares do affect perspectives, moods, emotions and behavioral patterns in human. All of us are subjects to some changes while some are more vulnerable.
“The idea that spots on the sun or solar flares might influence human health on earth at first appears to lack scientific credibility.
However, when significant correlations between hospital admissions and health registers and Solar-Geomagnetic Activity (S-GMA) are found, then the challenge is to conceive of and to document a scientifically plausible and observationally supported mechanism and model. There is a large body of research correlating S-GMA with biological effects and human health effects.
There is currently an absence of a known and credible biophysical mechanism to link the S-GMA with these effects,” writes Dr Neil Cherry Associate Professor of Environmental Health at the Lincoln University in his science paper.
While Dr Neil Cherry Talks about solar flares, some scientist believes that eclipses do have some kind of desynchronize in our circadian rhythm, that is our biological clock. In both cases the pineal gland in our brain seems to be much more affected by the electromagnetic activity. Even though the medical world has not yet fully research about physical effects on people, the beliefs that eclipses are capable of producing psychological effect may pave way to discoveries on this subject.
Transylvanian effect or Transylvanian hypothesis, a modern theory in intellectual literature, presumes that lunar eclipse may affect body and mind as an impact on the circadian rhythm of human body. Studies say that human and creature activities, physiological process and actions undergo alterations caused through seasonal changes circadian rhythms and lunar and solar cycles. They also state that the effects these cycles on humans and animals have been much less explored. Although medical world warns about looking at solar eclipse with naked eye, it does not say anything about lunar eclipse.
“The circadian regulatory system depends on repeated environmental cues to [synchronize] internal clocks,” says psychiatrist Kelly Posner, Columbia University. “Magnetic fields may be one of these environmental cues.”
As changes in magnetic fields happens, families have noted that some of their members have increased incidence of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, chaotic or confused thinking and erratic behaviors. With not enough scientific research, those who are psychologically weak seems to be more affected thus a close assistance and supervision is needed.
Human life has always been influenced by cosmological changed throughout ages and this is no secrets.
Psssst…Want to see the Solar Eclipse 2016?
While many stress about eye damages caused by viewing a total solar eclipse with the naked eye, many eye specialists don’t suggest the use of polarized glasses for such events. If polarized glasses are not the best match, I strongly believe so are special eclipse glasses, handmade eclipse band with flim rolls ( pellicule de photo), ect.
If you still wish to view the spectacular event, fill a plastic bucket of water place and place it in a clear and stable area to have the solar reflection. Move 1 meter away from the water bucket, you can watch the gradual phenomenon. Try not to stare for longer hours and give your eyes a break.
And the best way remains, sitting on the couch and watch a video of the solar eclipse.
Be like me, control your emotions and wait for the videos 😀
