Welcome to healthcare magic forum

Please mention ur age , sex and ht of ur parents, brothers/sisters.
Only then something can be suggested.
If you are under 18, you can take homeopathic remedies for growth, After doing some tests check if there is definite cause for this, so that it can be managed.

1.The ossification of epiphyseal ends of the long bones end by the time the individual attains the age of 20 to 21.So,the chances are 50-50 %
2.Exercise will not INCREASE your HEIGHT because bones can't be exercised and this is where your HEIGHT comes from.Your bones will continue to grow up until about age 25 but could stop sooner.You will grow as tall as you are gonna be by then .Just be healthy!!
.Your bones need phosphorus,calcium, and magnesium while your muscles need water,protein and carbohydrates to grow. Since you are growing taller, both your muscles and bones are getting bigger and longer.

Dear Ayesha sultan,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
At the age of 19 there are 50-50 chances of increasing height.So if you want to take a chance you can consult your nearest homeopath and after consultation homeopath would suggest you some medication which will help you to increase your height.Remember onething your height would be average of heights of your parents so you cannot expect very height if your parents are short.

Try out medication for 3 months and if there is no significant increase in your height you need not continues the treatment .
From our side we would suggest you to take thyroidinum 1m/1dose of homeopathic medicine once in a week and barytacarb 30 4 tabs 3 times in day.It will help you to increase your height if it has been retarded due to any reason except genetic.

Hope this helps,

increase in height can be thought of till growing points fuse to form bones. this is around the age of 18 years.Now balanced diet and regular exercise may aid a bit.

Height of a person depends on a variety of factors like genetics, any underlying hormonal problems.
Height gain after the age of 18 yrs in girls and 20 yrs in boys is difficult.
Let know your parents heights, the height of your siblings, if female have you got your menses, your current weight, has there been any weight gain in the last 6 months.
Do not lose your confidence or get stressed out due to your height, try and develop the positive points in your personality and believe in your self !!!!

Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic
Significant increase in height is only possible before the age of 18 yrs, afterwards chances are too low.If u r below this age some homoeopathic medicines are very effective, but still the height of your parents or grand parents had been short then it will be difficult again.
General rules for growing height below 25 are good protein rich diet with stretching exercises, cycling, skipping, swimming. so if u need u can consult the homoeopath

Welcome to Healthcaremagic

Height of a person depends on the age of the person and his/her genetics.

Having a proper and a well balanced diet goes a long way towards increasing height. Make sure to include a diet rich in proteins, calcium, vitamins, minerals and zinc. Do not skip milk and eat lots of green vegetables.

Do some stretching exercises, make sure that your limbs and spine are stretched properly. Other outdoor activities like cycling, playing tennis and swimming regularly can increase height to quite an extent. Play games like tennis and basket ball that require you to jump a lot. This will help you in gaining a good height.

Homeopathy can also help you so you can consult a Homeopath.
