Is there any natural way of increasing the height? Will there be any side effects?

Hello, my name is Nikhil Malhotra and i am 23 yrs old as of now. My height is 5.9 . Little concerned about whether it would be possible to increase my height by 2 - 3 inches using any of the natural means or any of the ayurved or homeopathic medicines. Ans, if possible, would these be medicines having any side effects at present or in the future..??

Dear Nikhil
After gaining the age of 18 years the growing points in bones fuse to get converted into bones, thereby stopping the process of growth. So in your case it may not be feasable to add height with medicines. Yes with lot of exercise you may feel marginal increase, even this has remote possibility. I believe 5-9 is a good height.
