Full Moon’s Effects on Your Health

You might think this is a little superstitious, but there is something real about how the full moon impacts people, animals and the things around us.

You can call me crazy but just hang in here with me for a minute…

Have you ever noticed with yourself or others that there seems to be something cyclical when it comes to being moody and irritable, and I’m not talking about PMS.  A fluctuation in mood that only lasts for a few days for some reason and is unexplainable.

Or what about sleep disturbances- going through periods of time when you have trouble falling asleep or tossing and turning that only last for a few days or a week at a time?

How about your digestion?  Do you experience phases of really great bowel movements and then all of a sudden they seem to go on the fritz?

And then there’s stuff such as skin rashes or breakouts, teeth grinding, and joint aches and pains.  Do those come and go too every few weeks?

Looking back now, were any of these things, or other ailments that you might suffer from worse this past week or so leading up to the full moon that we had last night?

It’s not a coincidence, it’s science.

In this week’s video I talk more about the scientific connection with the full moon cycles, your gut and what to be on the lookout for.

During a full moon, ocean tides are higher than usual from an increase in the gravitational pull from the moon and sun.  Considering that the body is 80% water, scientist and astrologers have often thought that similar effects happen in the body creating almost a “human tidal pull” that can affect brain function.

But PARASITES are likely the real thing driving you crazy or causing suffering during a full moon.

The gravitational pull on water balance in the kidneys causes a shift of movement or an “awakening”, making these little buggers more active during the full moon cycle, wreaking havoc on your gut, digestion and hormone balance.  Overgrowth of gut bacteria and/or yeast can also have similar effects during a full moon.

Textbook symptoms of parasites include; bloating, fatigue, flu like symptoms, low immune function (get sick or allergies often), excessive hunger, constipation, diarrhea, grinding teeth especially at night, hives, irritability, rashes, sleep disturbances, changes in weight, joint pain, headaches, gas, and bloating.

The most common parasites in my health coaching practice is Blastocystis Hominis.

Blasto can be persistent and likes to hang out with another gut offender, H. Pylori. And H. Pylori’s classic symptoms include; heartburn/acid reflux, ulcers, migraines and mid-back pain. But there are a bunch of different species that could be disrupting you.  We come across them all the time, and if the gut is already compromised, they move in and take over.

So here’s what I want you to do.

Now that the full moon has officially risen and we’re moving into a new moon cycle I want you to jot down any symptoms, aches, pains, ailments or health complaints that you’ve been experiencing this past week.

Then you’ll start tracking the progress of those things.  You’re looking to see if they improve and/or go away in the coming weeks, especially leading up to the new moon on April 7th when these gut infestations are most dormant.

If you think you have a gut bug now or after tracking this then you can set up a FREE Ideal Health & Weight Discovery Session with me to chat about the right plan of attack for you.

P.S. If you want to learn more about gut bugs and all things gut related then mark your calendar for April 6th at 6pm PT/ 9pm ET and register for my FREE webinar here where I dive into more details on this stuff!

  1. Hi Jenn-
    I understand that you are not an M.D.,but I’m having little luck with gastroenterologist, so I thought it might be a good idea to talk with you. For a number of years, I have had a problem with an excess amount of gas which seems to be getting worse and quite embarrassing. I probably own the Beano factory by now and it helps at times but not consistently. My husband who died in 2009 was a doctor in family practice and I see the benefits of Western medicine, but I have a huge respect for wholistic medicine as well. I would enjoy talking with you regarding this issue if you feel it might be helpful. I would be free to talk next week on Tuesday, June 13, at 3 pm eastern, Wednesday at 10 am eastern, or Thursday at 3 pm eastern. Please let me know your thoughts.

  2. Every full moon . I feel like the whole world coming down on me. moody. Tired. Pain. Going to the doctor alot.

    • That could certainly be a sign of something going on in your gut as I talked about it this blog!

    • I here you. I am the same way very moody and the whole world is coming down on me also very depressed. Why does a full moon do this to you. I have been monitoring it for months and it is always when there is a full moon. Hate feeling like this.

  3. Hi Jenn,

    Thanks for sharing this article. I have always been in trouble with gut related problem specially gas and bloating but then didn’t trouble me much till the time I landed to UK last year.
    The symptoms are Gas, Bloating (severe), head spinning or light headed ness, weakness (may be a feeling), loss of focus, fear, diarrhea, short breathness, heart fluttering etc
    But if I am correct, it looks like for me these symptoms grow towards the 15th of every month.
    I have seen Gastro, Dietician etc with no luck.
    Can you please please please help me.
    Thanks a ton

    • Hi,
      It definitely sounds as though your have some gut health issues that are going on which may have impacted your hormones and your overall health overtime resulting in some of the other symptoms you are experiencing. If your symptoms increase around the 15th of the month I wonder if that is in correlation with your menstrual cycle.

      I would be happy to see how I might be able to help you. You can schedule a complimentary consultation call here: https://wholistichealthboss.com/discovery-call/

  5. Hi Jenn,

    I have been having nausea at the Full/Dark Moon cycles for a couple years now. I have tried Rx and it can help a little, but very little. NAUSEA, my worst nightmare. I have lost over 40 pounds in two years as a result of not being able to eat. What do you think?

  6. I have an unknown auto immune disease for almost 30 years. I have been on many prescription drugs and hospitalized a few times. They gave me so many antibiotics I think I am full of heavy metal, I don’t think my adrenal glands function because of the amount of steroids they gave me. After spending a week at John Hopkins and having surgery, my team of doctors asked how it felt to be a medical wonder. I am sick a lot. What do you think…is there anything I can do or did they do too much damage to my body it is not fixable? Please help!

    • Hi Michelle- there is still a lot you can do to restore your health through diet, rest, exercise, proper supplementation and reducing the stress burden on the body. I would be more than happy to talk with you about the possibilities in more detail. You can schedule a complimentary ideal health consultation here: https://wholistichealthboss.com/discovery-call/
