- The production of melatonin can be disrupted. Melatonin is a hormone that regulates the body’s day/night rhythm. Jet lag, for example, is frequently a symptom of disruption to the supply of melatonin to the body.
- Increased sleep disturbance and tiredness. A person who has problems falling asleep, or who wakes often in the night, could serendipitously be sleeping over water veins or earth radiation.
