How to increase your Height after 18+

  1. Genetics play only 25% role in it. My father was only 5 6 and my mother is just 5 4 and my brother is 6 1
    It is the consequence of the medicine. Once my brother had a minor polio attack when he was just 12 years old and doctors told my parents that he can not grow taller than that (hardly 5 ft). He used that medicine for an year and he is now 6 1.

    This is more than an evidence.

    Can we grow wings by hanging for 24 hours a day?

    (Can anyone tell me exactly how to write the feet and inches mathematically. I've forgotten Maths after entering medical field lol :) )

  2. 6'1"

    ' - Foot
    " - Inch

    Thanks

    Are you talking about the bread made up of Wheat Floor?

  4. 'More than evidence'

    I've heard it all now... So you study medical science (allegedly), yet you claim anecdotal evidence to be more important than empirical research using large sample sizes?!

    Good luck with your studies, I think you might need it.

    By the way, have you seen a specialist about your eyes? You seem to have massively dilated pupils. Another side effect to those magic pills? ;-)

    People don't stop growing at 18, studies show that people continue growing well into their twenties at a much slower rate but they do grow. Your pituitary gland not automatically magically turn off at 18.
    Children can be much taller then their parents based on nutrition alone. Most foods are enriched now. Studies have even shown that even Pygmies a notoriously small people will grow far more then their parents with proper nutrition. The average human height has increased over the centuries due to nutrition and availability of food alone.
    As for Baryta Carbonica, it is technically a poison. It can increase irritation in the abdominal organs causing peristaltic action of the bowels. It can in rare cases cause paralysis in cardiac muscles. It has similar properties to Belladonna. It can be useful in cases where people have severe tremors, however it should only be used under the full guidance and care of a real MD.
    If you're going to give medical advice with your very minor training, you should do your research and you should also have a disclaimer that fully states that you are not a medical doctor nor have you had the training to give any medical advice and in fact giving medical advice with your lack of knowledge and education is indeed an immoral act and you are most likely shrinking right now.

    Are you talking about the bread made up of Wheat Floor?

    Yes - however biscuits and pancakes are made from almost the same recipe - it was a family joke when I was 8 years old or so when people would tease me.- but I took the advice and am just under 6 ft 4 in tall - so who knows.

    Nutrition does play some part - I think I saw that the average height of people in Japan jumped 3 or 4 inches in a generation or two following World War II when they had a better balanced diet.

    Thumbs up!

  8. i wanna grow taller and im 20, can anyone help me ? please ?:)

  9. You should have eaten your vegetables as a child.

  10. I'm 4ft 11ins and no amount of manure in me boots over the years has helped me grow taller.

  11. As for Baryta Carbonica, it is technically a poison.

    Yes it is a good alternative of poison when you take the whole bottle at once. Cause it (and many or almost all the homeopathic) medicines contain 90% alcohol. And taking concentrated alcohol (90%alcohol 10%water) (when Methylated) is more dangerous than poison.
    OMG censor my comment please :D
    But taking homeopathic medicines in the form of solid has no negative affect on you.(there's alcohol in less than 1%)
    I don't think any pill can extend your height more than 2-3 inches.
    All the medicines we see in the ads have rich side effects. Cause most of them contain steroids or vitamins. There's a logic Our body makes steroid by itself and taking them from outside causes disturbances in the body. I think exercise and taking good food makes you tall. I'll tell you tomorrow after asking it from medical specialist of my store.
    Is whey protein good to take? Is there any side effect of it?

    Dear God above!

  13. iphonist1 what you posted actually sounds like an ad.

    As for increasing height - when you get to my age you start losing height.

  14. @jessie
    Was that a joke? Or are you trying to answer more than a month old question?

    Adding the " for ardpete lol xxx

  17. @hnsaifi. It was a quote from iphonist's post above. Admittedly it's posted wrong and my comment is also in the quotation box. But to admit to forgetting maths when supposedly studying medicine is to my mind, appalling.

    And yes, I meant Dear God Above. I should've added God help us!

  18. I'm 6 foot, 2 1/2 inches. It's does me okay. I'm not quite sure what this thread is about.

  19. Do you still want more height Daniel?

  20. when I was 18 I was 5' 7, when I was 22 I was 5' 9

    And still people say you stop growing taller after 18.

    I've heard that you grow taller if you don't feed the trolls.
