Height can not be increased by masturbation. It is genetic. Usually it is difficult to increase after 17 years but some also increased height after 18 years. You could get X-ray to see your growth plate.

Here are height growth tips after 18 years of age:

1. Simple exercises like rope skipping, hanging from a bar, stretching the body by standing on
your toes etc can be performed on a daily basis as a routine. Not only can these steps help
to grow taller, but they are also good for overall fitness.

2. Men and women who have an athletic body can attempt sprinting at high speed. This process
helps in release of human growth hormone in good quantity and hence your body can grow
well naturally.

3. Another step to boost the release of human growth hormone is to have 5-6 small meals
during the day rather than the conventional 3 meals a day.

4. Many a times we consume items like antibiotics, drugs and other items that act as growth
inhibitors. Knowing the growth inhibitors properly and avoiding them is a step towards
growing taller naturally.

5. Performing yoga on a regular basis can also help greatly. Some of the posture correction
steps can easily help to increase height naturally.

6. A key point that many people miss is proper rest. Your body needs time to grow and expand.
This is only possible if you sleep well and take rest regularly. If you seriously want to
increase height naturally, don't miss this point.

7. Another option to grow 2 to 6 inches height after the age of 18 is stretching exercises & yoga
along with the right diet. You must take stretching workouts regularly and rigorously. Fix up a
rod in your room and hang over it when ever you have the time. Also you should take up
leisure activities like basket ball & swimming.

8. Have a lot of water and dairy products.

9. Sleep at least for 6 to 8 hours in the night and have a balanced diet.

10. Have foods that are rich in zinc, manganese and phosphorus.

11. Maintain your weight. It might become a hindrance in your growth.

Be positive.
Take care
