Answer to your Health Question


I am 23 year old male from Africa Nigeria.

I want to know if there is any drugs or EXERCISE I can do to increase my height

Hope you will find way to answer my question.



Dear Akeem,

The conclusions of some expert is that body growth will stop in 20's
and nothing can 'reinstate' it, not magic pills nor exercises.

There are hundreds of getting-taller program spread world wide,from sophisticated equipment which work like pulling your body frequently, shoe insertion, pills, exercises, yoga, etc.
The effectiveness is also vary.

It's biologically proven that the bone stop grow in certain age, and that's it.

Apart from pills intake, certain exercise and yoga plus certain nutritional diet is the safest way to try.

Intense exercise and nutritional diet is believed to be able to stimulate the discs to be thickened a little bit. Just few mm will create significant look. Assume each disc is thickened by 1mm. When multiplied by 33 it creates increment about 10cm/4inch.

One sample of stimulated bone is Karen tribe. Hundreds of the women have unusual long neck.

For their culture, the longer neck, the more beautiful.
This is happened when their neck bone is 'forced'. And the neck is keeping longer until their 40-50's. So even above their 30 they still can add more 'neck ring', this one proves that the bone is potentially grown even for adult. Off course it'sthrough some process. One of it is Postural Exercises

For some people doing simple activities can make such a big difference.
-Swim in the saltless water.(swimming pool is the best)
-Sleep at least 10 hours without pillows
-Don't drink lots of milk, it will not make to grow taller instead drink mixing yoghurt and water.
-Do stretches
-Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Growth hormone (GH) is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and cell reproduction in humans and other animals.

There is theoretical concern that GH treatment may increase the risks of diabetes, especially in those with other predispositions treated with higher doses.

Human Growth Hormone will make you taller, but not safely so.

Human growth hormone can increase an individuals height up to five inches within
many months. However, there are numerous side-effects associated with HGH which make
it more risky than the other methods to grow taller.

Human growth hormone stimulators are amino acid combinations that naturally force the pituitary gland into making human growth hormone. This procedure is effective and much safer than expensive synthetic growth hormone. There are no negative side-effects since your body makes HGH naturally.

The problem with human growth hormone stimulators is that they are only effective on younger individuals below an average 28 years of age.

Height increase is possible with stretching exercises.

Limb lengthening is a surgical procedure that requires either internal or external rods placed inside the limbs which have to be adjusted periodically. This procedure is currently being performed for cosmetic reasons outside of the United States.

Height increase is possible at any age but some methods are better than others.
However, all do require a physical, emotional, and financial effort.
