Homoeopathy For Height Increase!

Homoeopathy For Height Increase!

The homeopathic medicine acts mainly on three sites:- 

1. Increase growth hormones production 

A. The growth is not only dependent on genetic but hormones equally plays important role in body`s growth. 
B. Your growth potential reduces especially after puberty because your pituitary gland becomes inactive. Homoeopathic medicine stimulates the pituitary gland to increased production of natural level of growth hormones, which causes growth of the cartilaginous portions of the vertebrae and the long bones. 

2. Cartilages growth 

Al though most of your bones can`t grow any longer after puberty, the articular cartilages that connect many bones can still grow thicker. Besides the distal potion on each vertebrae, the distal end of femur and the proximal end of tibia each can grow up to an inch, which gives another 2 inches extra height.

3. Spinal column extension

The spinal column in upper body contributes significantly to r height because it accounts for 35% of total height. 

One important component of the spine is inter-vertebral discs. These discs are located between each of 33 vertebrae. On average, your total discs account for one-quarter the length of your vertebral column - 4.5 to 6 inches for most people. 

The thicker the discs, the longer your spinal column is and the taller you become. Homeopathic medicine allows your height by expanding the discs and lengthening your spine. 

Recent scientific research has proven that most young adults can still grow a few inches taller even after the bones in their lower body have become ossified. This is because besides the length of the femur bone, tibia bone, and other bones in the lower body, the length of the spinal column in the upper body also significantly contributes to human height. 

A homeopathic constitutional treatment will give you best results naturally 

You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Increase height without age boundaries!

I Would like to share some facts on Height Growth

Height growth is controlled by various factors such as growth hormones (HGH ) 

Our bone does not grow from anywhere ( The growth ocurs from a certain location) called Epiphysis plats

As age advances the Production of HGH(Human Growth Hormone is Dimnished - But not completely Vanished)

The epiphysis plates start to close ( But do not emerge comletely , the fusion of bone is a slow process it takes several years)

This means we can increase height by stimulating Our Epiphysis plate ( Growth Centre) and Growth Hormone (HGH) Naturally to increase Height 

Lets share some more facts about Height Growth
The production of growth hormone is maximum during first two hours of our sleep
Overeating reduce the level of growth hormone in our body
A proper diet is very must to increase height
We have seen height increase even after 40's and 50's with natural therapy

Homeopathic Medicine For Height Increase - How Effective It Is?

The growth of height is a big issue for those whose growth gets stunted due to various reasons. Any medicinal treatment in other pathy is not completely effective in contributing to the growth of height. Moreover, it can exert the side effects also. On the other hand, homoeopathy is a branch of medicine that does not exert any side effects and give better results for height gain. Short height is not any abnormal medical condition or a disease rather the people with short height usually feels alienated and has low self-esteem. But those who have substantial height remain more fit and able to do tasks with greater ease and higher efficiency.

What determines height?
There is an essential component that plays a very important role in height and growth of individuals. Growth hormone plays a very important role in the growth of height in children and it is secreted for a particular period of time. Hence, it is important to maintain the right balance of these hormones in the body and for that, you need to have a healthy and balanced diet so as to give support to the cartilage. Homoeopathy is known for not only treating the physical symptoms of the disorder but also, removing the disease by its roots. Homoeopathic medicines possess the capacity to enhance the durability and provide an anchor to the cartilage in order to maintain its proper structure.

For increasing the height, spinal cord also plays a very important role. It is easier for an individual to gain height during early years of the life. The height and its growth are also dependent upon the width of the disk that helps in determining the length of the spinal cord in our body. Greater the width of the disk, greater is the height of the person.

In homoeopathy treatment, the medicines are given so as to get in accordance with the immune system and thereby to generate its effects, unlike the pathy medicines options that suppress the functioning of the immune system. But there are certain facts that should be considered while opting for homoeopathic treatment for height gain which are as follows:

  1. The medicine has to be taken in right amount so as to gain maximum benefits.
  2. Each person’s body is unique and hence the growth variations differ from individual to individual. There are various factors that determine this variation such as symptoms, physical status, and potential of the person. So, if you take the homoeopathic medicine on a regular basis, then you will surely get an increment in the height.
  3. Medicines can be given to adults also.
  4. The homoeopathic medicines are not at all addictive in nature. Once the improvements are observed, the individual can discontinue the medicine.
  5. These medicines are made of natural substances and are safe to consume. It can even be consumed by the infants and pregnant women.
  6. The homoeopathy works by following a holistic approach.

How To Increase Height After 18 Years Of Age?

The age of 18 is the transition stage between childhood and adulthood. During adolescent period, several hormonal changes take place within the human body. It indeed is good news that an individual During grow 2 to 6 inches taller even after turning 18. Scientists have discovered that the human body is capable to further grow and develop. Therefore, there is a possibility to increase height with some external help.

How to Increase Height after 18 Years?

Though, it is possible to increase height after the age of 18 years, extra effort is required in order to reap positive results as the development of the body slows down gradually. It’s a well known fact that nutrition is imperative for further growth and development, most importantly natural height gain. In addition to this, a number of other factors should also be taken into consideration to trigger height growth after attaining the age of 18.

1. Healthy Breakfast: It is recommended to have a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast is not at all a healthy option for your growth and hence your height. Having proper breakfast boosts your metabolism and thus has a positive effect on your height.

2. Proper Nutrition: Proper nutrition is absolutely vital for a healthy body. Most people fail to reach their maximum height due to inadequate nutrition. To get proper nutrition, it is necessary to follow a balanced diet. Consumption of essential nutrients provides the required stimulus for increasing the body height both naturally and medically. Apart from these points, including food items rich in zinc, manganese and phosphorus also contributes to your growth.

3. Have Adequate Sleep and Rest: Proper sleep and rest plays a vital role in overall growth and development. Teenagers require at least 8.5 to 11 hours of sleep every night. This is because the body grows and regenerates tissues during sleep. Moreover, human growth hormone, which is responsible for increasing height, is produced while sleeping. Hence, proper sleep and rest are mandatory for height gain.

4. Frequent, Smaller Meals: Have six small meals in a day instead of three in order to boost your metabolism. The results of your height gain regime and the amount of human growth hormone produced depends on what you eat. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you are getting the necessary vitamins and minerals required for attaining full height naturally.

5. Exercise and Yoga Regime: Exercise is a vital factor in increasing your height. Simple exercises like skipping, hanging from an overhead bar and stretching the body by standing on your toes should be part of your daily workout routine. Additionally, sporting activities like basketball, football and swimming are also beneficial for increasing height. Yoga is also very effective.
6. Maintain Ideal Body Weight: Obesity can have an adverse effect on your height. Obesity can cause several health problems too. Hence, it is important to maintain an ideal body weight by following a balanced diet and proper exercise regime.
7. Drink Plenty of Water: Water flushes out toxins from your body and aids in digestion. Therefore, at least drinking 8 glasses of water every day is recommended for a better health.

8. Avoid Growth Inhibitors: Teenagers often adopt the habit of smoking and drinking without realizing the adverse effects on their growth. Antibiotics, drugs, cigarettes and alcohol act as growth inhibitors; therefore, avoid them to grow taller naturally.

9. Practice Good Posture: A good posture plays a vital role in the development of your height. Always try to keep your head and neck aligned in a straight posture. Bending and slouching causes your spinal cord to suppress normal height.
10. Avoid Smoking and Drinking: Indulging in smoking and drinking suppresses your primary growth. It initiates your secondary growth which adversely affects your height. Hence, it is better to refrain from immoral activities.

Here are all the tips on how to increase height after 18 in women. Fortunately, it is possible to increase height after 18 years is possible by following the above-mentioned steps. In spite of this, if your height has not increased much in between the time before and after puberty, it advisable to get medical help in order to get to the root of the problem.

Height Growth - How Ayurveda Can Help Boost It In Monsoon Season?

Height Growth - How Ayurveda Can Help Boost It In Monsoon Season?

Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu science of medicine, was developed over thousands of years ago (with initial mentions found in the Atharva Veda) and is based centrally on the concept of balance. This balance refers to the equilibrium between the mind and physical health to maintain a properly functioning body existing in perfectly harmonious co-existence. Based centrally around the usage of herbs and other natural remedies, Ayurveda has historically worked wonders in various aspects of life and well-being. This includes improving digestion, maintaining heart health, increasing height and maintaining an overall well-being. 

When does Ayurveda flourish?
If anything aids the flourishing of Ayurveda and herb growth, it is the rains - or the season of monsoon. The months of July-September provide the optimum temperature and environment required for proper growth of herbs, and in turn, is the best time for bodily growth as well. Advancements in science and technology and extensive research has proved, that the maximum amount of growth of the body takes place during the rainy season. 

Understanding the concept of Vata dosha
Vata is a concept that, according to the ancient science of Ayurveda, governs all movement of the human body, along with regulating almost all bodily systems such as the nervous system and the elimination or excretory system. When the Vata dosha dominates (which is usually congruous with the Monsoon season), it is said that you tend to be more energetic and creative. Greater energy leads you to be more enthusiastic and lively, thus aiding your growth process as well. 
Height growth, however, is not universal in all cases. It is mostly seen in people aged 25 or below, as during that period, the bones are still relatively soft and developing.

What can you do?
1. Engage in Yoga: Engaging in proper yoga and exercising regularly will go a long way in increasing height, especially when the vata dosha is prevalent. In this regard, mention needs to be made of the Tarasana (Tadasana/Mountain Pose). Tarasana mainly exercises the foot muscles (both intrinsic and extrinsic), along with the diaphragm and quadriceps - all of which work towards increasing height.

2. Eat right: The one imperative aspect that cannot be overlooked, and which goes hand in hand with yoga and exercising is maintaining a proper diet. Suggested foods include protein-rich foods such as gram flour, pulses, milk and other dairy products, black gram, beans etc. all of which will help you to grow those extra few inches. Herbs such as ashwagandha, giloy, bala, shatavari etc., in certain specific ratios, can also work wonders. It is advisable that you contact your doctor to know the correct amounts of each which will be suitable for you.

7 Symptoms Of Growth Hormone Deficiency

7 Symptoms Of Growth Hormone Deficiency

The body produces a number of chemicals called hormones which are essential for the regulation of various functions including growth and metabolism. These hormones are produced by endocrine glands which are located in various parts of the body. One such important gland is the pituitary gland which produces the important growth hormone. This is essential for regulating optimal growth during the growing years and for maintaining proper amounts of body fat, muscles, and bones in the later years of life.

Causes: Deficiency of the growth hormones can occur due to a number of causes, some of which are listed below. It can be congenital (present at birth) or acquired later in life.
The congenital issue could be due to problem in the pituitary gland structure, leading to complete absence or reduced secretion of the hormone.
With age, there is a decrease in the amount of secretion. However, infections, injuries, brain tumors, surgery and radiation can also lead to altered amounts of secretion.

Symptoms: While growth hormone deficiency can occur at any age, symptoms differ depending on the age when the deficiency sets in.
In the early ages:

  • Lower rate of growth for a given age
  • Delayed developmental milestones
  • Delayed onset of puberty
  • Short stature/reduced height
  • Younger looking compared to other children their age
  • Fat deposition around the waist
  • Delayed dental development

When the deficiency sets in during the later years, there is

  • Low energy levels, constant tiredness
  • Decreased strength
  • Decreased exercise tolerance
  • Decreased overall muscle mass
  • Thin and dry skin
  • Increased fat deposition and weight gain around the waist
  • Changes in social behavior including alternate cycles of anxiety and depression
  • Lack of motivation
  • History of pituitary tumors
  • High levels of fat and cholesterol

The diagnosis depends on the age of the person

  • Blood tests are carried out to check the hormone levels in circulation
  • In children, in addition to the hormone levels, x-rays to see the status of growth plates is very helpful.
  • An insulin hypoglycemia test where insulin is given intravenously to see the levels of the growth hormone after 30 minutes.
  • Total cholesterol levels, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, and triglyceride levels can be used to supplement the above tests.
  • CT scan and/or MRI of the brain may be needed if tumors are suspected.

Treatment: Once diagnosed, replacement therapy is given as shots a few times a week under the skin. This restores normal growth and helps in controlling the symptoms in adults too.
In cases of tumor, radiation or surgery may be required, but most cases are managed with hormone replacement.
Watch out for the symptoms if your child has delayed developmental milestones and early intervention can help restore growth and function to normal levels. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hypopituitarism - Causes And Symptoms Of It!

The pituitary gland is a small, pea-sized attached to the base of the brain. It controls growth, functioning and development of other hormonal glands. The deficit of one or more pituitary hormones is a state of Hypopituitarism. This clinical term is used by endocrinologists to mean that one or more pituitary glands are deficient. In hypopituitarism, the pituitary gland does not produce the normal amounts of hormones.

Causes-

Hypopituitarism has the following causes

  1. Brain tumours

  2. Sarcoidosis (A lung disorder)

  3. Tumours in the pituitary gland

  4. Hemochromatosis (Too much iron in the body)

  5. Tumours in hypothalamus (Controls the production of hormones)

  6. Histiocytosis X (A rare autoimmune disease where the immune cells damage the organs)

  7. Tuberculosis

  8. Stroke

  9. Sheehan syndrome (Excessive blood loss during childbirth)

  10. Lymphocytic hypophysitis (inflammation in the pituitary gland)

  11. Radiation treatments like chemotherapy

Symptoms-

Symptoms depend on which hormones is not being produced.

  • Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACH): Lack of ACH affects the adrenal glands (endocrine glands producing hormones) and cortisol (a steroid hormone). Symptoms include

    • Fatigue

    • Low sodium levels

    • Loss of weight

    • Pale skin

  • Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH): Deficient TSH mostly affects the thyroid (produces growth-regulating hormones) gland. The symptoms are

    • Fatigue

    • Weight gain

    • Skin dryness

    • Sensitivity to cold

    • Constipation

  • Luteinizing hormone (LH): Low luteinizing hormone in women affects their ovaries and ovulation. Symptoms include-

  • In men, lack of LH affects their testes and sperm production. Symptoms include
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): This hormone affects men and women the same way the luteinizing hormone does. Thus the symptoms are the same.
  • Growth Hormone: In children, the growth hormone affects their bone, fat and muscle. They have the following symptoms
    • Lack of height
    • Increase in body fat
    • Abnormal peak bone mass (bone tissue present after the skeleton matures)
    • In adults, the whole body is affected. Body fat increases while muscle and bone mass decrease.​
  • Prolactin: Prolactin deficiency only affects women. The prolactin hormone gets the production of milk started after childbirth. Lack of prolactin thus affects breastfeeding.​
  • Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH): The kidneys are affected by lack of ADH. Symptoms include—
  • Oxytocin: Lactation and childbirth are affected by lack of oxytocin.

Short In Height - Should You Be Worried About Your Child?

Out of the many things a parent can be worried about their child, physical growth and development are the major ones. Height development is indeed a very crucial part of the overall development of a child's body. But how will you know whether your child is short and should you worry if he or she is short?

When is a child categorised as being short?
A child is said to be of short stature when the height is two standard deviations less than the mean height for the specific age and sex. However, it does not signify that your child is sick or has some deformity.

What are the causes of being short?
The most common reasons that need not be worried about are:

  1. Ancestry: Your child short height could be a result genetics. If his/her parents belong from a short family stature, then, the child is most likely to follow the same. Being said that, their body performs in a normal way and they do not face any medical issue despite being short.
  2. Delay in Growth: In case a child faces a severe growth delay between the age of 6 months and up to 2 years, then it may lead to him/her staying short. Such children usually grow at a much slower pace, compared to other children of the same age without any development issues. However, no medical treatment is required as the child usually catches up with the height of their friends of the same age, once they become adults.

What are the medical Conditions behind the short stature?
For children who show an excessive delay in growth, doctors can find out whether they are going through any serious medical condition that needs attention or not. Some of the medical conditions which can cause short height are:

  1. Malnutrition: For those who do not receive proper nutrition on a daily basis, tend to face physical health issues.
  2. Chronic Illness: Any congenital disease or something that affects the major organs of one's body might slow down the height growth.
  3. GHD: Growth Hormone Deficiency is a common condition in children. When the pituitary gland does not produce enough hormones, such a condition occurs.
  4. Mental Stress: When a child faces stress from a very little age, often he or she becomes mentally and physically hampered.
  5. Genetic Problems: A condition known as Turner’s syndrome can cause growth failure in a girl child.
  6. Hormonal Imbalance: For those who suffer from improper production of hormones, they might face obstruction in case of height growth.
  7. Endocrine diseases: Endocrine diseases disrupt hormone production thus resulting in a delay in growth.

For every 100 children of a particular age, 3 tend to be shorter. However, unless your child suffers from a medical problem, short stature is not to be worried, and it is recommended that they have a proper and balanced nutrition to ensure a proper height development. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
