This article is specifically written to put an end to the wrong information about height growth and to save the general population from fraudulent medicines and their harmful effects.
The physical image has become the most important asset for a person, and height plays one of the major roles of disappointment in most. Height becomes a big issue in people whose growth is stunted due to various reasons. Short height is not a medical disease or condition, but people of shorter height have low self-esteem. Homeopathy is a branch of medicine that gives good results in height gain and does not have any side effects.
Several factors play a role in determining the height of an individual. Each person’s body is unique, and growth differs from person to person.
Genes play a very important role, and other factors like nutrition and exercise can also contribute to height.
Height increase depends on the fusion of epiphysis, especially in the long bones, which are known as growth plates. These growth plates keep increasing the length until a certain age. This age differs according to sex. Meaning, that females stop growing earlier than males. Usually, the maximum age for girls is 16 years, and for boys is 18 years. In very rare cases, it may extend further. Hormonal changes cause these growth plates to harden and stop the lengthening of the bones.
The growth hormone plays an important role in height which is secreted for a particular period in children.
The spinal cord also plays an important role in height. The height and growth are dependent on the width of the disk. If the width of the disk is greater, the height of the person will be greater.
People are highly dependent on superstitions or rumors. They believe that after a girl starts to menstruate, the growth stops, which is not true.
Also, the prominence of Adam's apple in a boy means he cannot grow more.
In addition to that, the internet, television, and other forms of advertisement also cause a lot of confusion in people.
A common myth is that certain exercises or stretches can increase height. Many people believe that activities like hanging and climbing will increase height. There is no evidence for this.
Drinking milk can make one taller is a myth.
Genes are only responsible for height is also a commonly believed myth among people.
Many people try medications and surgery to increase their height.
Homeopathy is an alternative treatment to some expensive treatments like artificial growth hormone.
Homeopathy is the world's second-largest medical system.
Homeopathic medications are scientifically proven. The effect of the homeopathic medication has shown excellent results in many people.
People believe that homeopathic medicines act slowly. But they can give quick and good results.
Homeopathic medicines do not contain any steroids.
There are very few restrictions while taking homeopathic medications, like patients should not eat or drink anything 15 minutes before or after taking the medications. It is better to avoid raw onion, raw garlic, coffee, and mint when taking homeopathic medications.
Homeopathic medications can be taken with other systems of medications like Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, or naturopathy.
Homeopathic medications should be taken in the correct amount on a regular basis to gain benefits.
Medications can be taken by children and adults also.
Homeopathic medications given for height growth are not addictive in nature and safe to consume. It should be taken on an empty stomach.
Homeopathic medicine has three main actions:
Increase Growth Hormones Production: Growth is not only dependent on genes but also on growth hormones. Homeopathic medicine stimulates the production of growth hormone, which causes an increase in height.
Increase the Growth of Cartilage: Bones cannot grow after a certain age, but the articular cartilages connecting the bones can still grow. Homeopathic medications increase the growth of the cartilage.
Extension of the Spinal Column: Recent research has proven that the spinal column in the upper body plays a role in height. Intervertebral disks located between each vertebra contribute to height. If the disks are thicker, it will lengthen the spinal column and increase the height. Homeopathic medicine increases height by expanding the disks and lengthening the spine.
Many homeopathic doctors suggest some medicines like Baryta, Calcarea, Tuberculum, etc., The extent of growth depends on the physical condition and potency of an individual and differs from person to person. All the above said homeopathic medicine plays a role in increasing height but Baryta is highly effective in treating all age groups. It can be given to adults above 20 also. It gives 70 percent results in height growth.
The simple truth is that height growth is possible till the growth plates are not fused, which happens around the age of 18 years.
It is better to start any treatment after understanding the cause of the short height.
Some supplements or exercises, and medicines can indeed increase height before the age of fusion, but it highly depends on the genetic inheritance of the person, which is difficult to manipulate.
The most dangerous treatment can be hormonal supplements, which have some severe side effects. Before going for any treatment, make sure you know all its advantages and disadvantages.
Taking only medicines may not give desired results; instead, take proper nutritional supplements, including protein and exercise properly. Eating a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables will help achieve the desired height. Regular exercise is necessary for proper physical development. Do cycling, swimming, Suryanamaskar, pull-ups, etc. Avoid taking over-the-counter prescriptions or patent-advertised products.
Homeopathic medications for height growth are getting popular as a substitute for anabolic steroids. They help in increasing height to a certain extent. Homeopathic medications are natural and completely safe with no side effects.
