Brief Answer: epiphysis fused: ILIZAROV TECHNIQUE.good Nutrition Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for using XXXXXXX Growing taller normally and mainly depends on the genetic makeup and hormonal actions till the fusion of our bone epiphysis(can be seen with x ray of long bones) and secondarily depends on the nutrition and exercises. So if your epiphysis is not yet fused: 1. Then good nutrition with stretching exercises like swimming, cycling, aerobics will help you or 2. If there is any hormonal deficiency like growth hormone or thyroid hormone then the hormonal replacement will help you. The hormonal deficiency if present then they presents with other functional abnormality. If you have no other problem then the chance of hormonal deficiency is less. If your epiphysis has fused which will normally occurs by the age of 21-24 in male then growing 4 inch taller is not possible with improving nutrition or exercises or even with medicines. 1. The only option is surgical intervention like ILIZAROV TECHNIQUE. 2. Good nutrition and stretching exercises may help you. So have good nutritious food with exercises. Hope this explanation is helpful and informative to you. Please feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them. Wish you good health. Regards

Brief Answer: Nutrition, exercise, sound sleep. Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing back. The density of hair and thickness depends on the number of hair follicles and the size of hair follicle respectively. So the number and size of hair follicle is dependent on genetic makeup. But we can keep hair healthy and strong by following these suggestions: 1) Take a protein powder, multivitamin tablets and well balanced diet. 2) Avoid smoking if smoker, keep stress free and exercise regularly. 3) Massage your scalp once with warm olive oil. 4) Avoid conditioners as it may make hair look lean and can use volumising shampoo to add volume to hair. Better to consult your doctor once for examination. You may also apply minoxidil 5 percent solution over scalp to improve hair growth but with your doctor's advice. For improving your memory and to be active you need to have good nutritious food, sound sleep for continuous 7-8 hour sleep and regular minimum 30min exercises with more of revisions. Memory depends on the depth of knowledge and hence you need to understand the concept and need to recall the subject. These will help you. Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any queries. If satisfied you can rate my answer and write a review as well. Take care,
