Well its true that during a full moon the tides are higher than usual and this is due to the gravitational pull from the sun and moon. I am sure you are aware that the human body is said to be approx 80 percent made up of water, so this is why some people really do physically feel different during a full moon. Scientists agree that a full moon can have a similar effect on our bodies as it does with the sea and tides.

Swiss researchers offered results on a study they had done regarding sleep and luna cycles and it was discovered that a full moon can effect our sleep.
