Guidelines For Good Health And Proper Height

It can be really hard to watch your friends grow and develop when the same thing is not happening to you. You may feel like you're never going to catch up. People at school may joke about your small size or your flat chest. Even when the doctor or your parents reassure you that things will be OK eventually - and even when you believe they're right - it's difficult to wait for something that can affect how you feel about yourself.

If you're feeling depressed or having school or emotional problems related to delays in your growth and development, we can help you get the height you always wanted.

To increase height is a prime concern in many people's minds today. A good height makes one look great, be confident and have greater self-esteem.

Human growth hormone is one of the solutions to the problem of how to increase height. Human growth hormone is produced in the anterior portion of the pituitary gland deep inside the brain. Production peaks at adolescence when accelerated growth occurs. But growth hormone levels fall steadily on reaching adulthood, and the body stops to increase height.

Maintaining the body's chemical balance and cell rejuvenation are two main reasons the human body generates growth hormone. Growth hormone instructs your skeletal bones to grow larger and stronger while it speeds the conversion of excess fats into energy. In other words, if the growth hormone production increases, your body receives signals to increase height.

Although the amount of growth hormone your body regularly produces is entirely up to your brain, there are a few things you can do to trick the pituitary gland into being a bit more generous. If you are eager to increase height, there are a number of factors that, if manipulated correctly, will substantially increase growth hormone levels in your body and, consequently, your height.

In just a moment, you will learn how you can grow taller and increase your height naturally, using scientifically developed and proven principles. You will know that it is still possible for you to grow taller naturally after puberty and that you can realize your dream of growing a few more inches in just 3 short months.

Forget about growth hormone injection or limb lengthening operation. They are way too expensive and dangerous for you. What you need is a safe, effective and affordable way to grow taller naturally and easily.

According to the human growth medical research findings of Dr Ichiro Kawaguchi of Tokyo Research Laboratory of the National Health Department and Dr A. Kawata from the Kyoto University, human height is not determined by genetic factor alone but is strongly influenced by the effects of certain hormones on the development of the 26 skeletal bones and the cartilageneous portions of the 62 bones of the lower body. The stimulation of the pituitary gland would increase hormonal production, which would then spur the growth of the cartilageneous portions of the bones of the lower body, ultimately leading to height increase.

Intensive scientific research has also proven that most young adults can still grow a few inches taller even after the bones in their lower body have become ossified (commonly known as "bone plate is fused"). This is because besides the length of the femur bone (thighbone), shinbone, and other bones in the lower body, the length of the spinal column in the upper body also significantly contributes to human height (about 35% of the total height).

Human spinal column consists of 33 separate bone segments known as vertebrae held together by ligaments (tough and fibrous tissue). Out of these 33 vertebrae, only the lowest 9 are fused into two immovable bones, the sacrum and the coccyx, forming the back of the pelvis. All the other 24 vertebrae are permanently movable and thus will never be fused. These 24 vertebrae are the 7 cervical (neck), 12 thoracic (back of chest), and 5 lumbar (loin).

Located between each of these 24 vertebrae are cartilaginous pads called disks . The thickness of the disks determines the length of the spinal column and directly influences the height. There are totally 25 disks, their combined length accounts 25% of your total height. Since these disks are non-fusible cartilages, they can constantly grow thicker under the stimulation of growth hormone during a life time.

The thicker those disks are, the longer your spinal column is and the taller you become. Even each disk grows only 0.25 cm (0.1 inch) thicker, which is the length of this line in quotes "_", you will grow 0.25 * 25 = 6.25 cm (2.5 inches) taller!

Besides giving you the extra inches you desire, you has been proven to increase blood circulation, improve digestion, increase metabolism, reduce tiredness, slow-down aging, smoothen breathing and promote general good health. Truly a wonderful way to grow taller and stay healthy at the same time!
