There is a scientific reason behind this....

You must have heard of the magnetic fields on the planet. In many ways, the earth is engineered because of its magnetism. Thats how powerful the magnetic forces are on the planet. Now, if you place your head to the north and stay that way for 5 to 6 hours, the magnetic pull will cause pressure on your brain. If you are beyond a certain age and your blood vessels are weak, you could have hemorrhages and paralytic strokes. Or, if your system is sturdy and these things dont happen to you, you could get up agitated because there is more circulation in the brain than there should be when you are sleeping.

This prevails in India; when a Hindu dies or is about to die, the head is turned to wards North.
Generally, it is advised that head should be towards south or east wards. For knowledge east ward, and for happiness towards the south.

They do n't keep head northward while sleeping, but for different reason.
