welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Height increases because of growth at the ends of long bones. They stopped growing around 18-19 years of age in male, due to hormonal influence on body permanently. No allopathic or ayurvedic medicine (self acclaimed) can increase your height as you are already 22 years of old. So, do not get trapped with them.

Complex Surgical procedure like ilizarov method can increase height. But it is costly, difficult and prolong procedures (take months).

So, do not get frustrated and accept your height as god had given you. Try to work on your personality and weight to look more attractive.

Wish you all the best.
