Do you wish you could grow taller? You're not the only one. Thousands of people around the world are unhappy with how they look and seek to change it. Fortunately, there are ways that work.
If you want to make your height taller, it's best to start when you're young. When your body is still growing, you can enhance the process by maintaining a good diet and exercising regularly. In fact, it's very important that you do both of these things, lest your health suffer.
By this I mean that if you eat nothing but junk throughout your teens, you actually risk stunting your growth. When you don't get enough nutrients such as protein, calcium, calories, and amino acids, your body starts to take these nutrients from other sources, including your bones. This can cause weakened bones as well as other health complications.
Exercising to make your height taller does work to some extent, but you must do so when you are still growing. There are many scams on the market today that claim to know exercises that are able to stretch your bones after they've stopped growing. This doesn't work. Nothing can make your bones grow again once you've hit adulthood.
However, by exercising, you increase muscle mass, which in turn makes your bones stronger as they carry your additional weight. Exercising also increases a height growth hormone when you're younger, which helps in speeding your growth spurts. Exercising when you're young can also prevent bone weakening diseases as well as much of the shrinking that sometimes occurs when you grow older.
If you're an adult and wish to grow taller, there are many methods you can try. Dressing to make yourself look taller is an effective method. Wearing solid colors, pinstripes, and shoes with height enhancing insoles can be very useful. Exercising makes you slimmer, which also increases the illusion.
Some adults resort to limb lengthening surgery to make themselves taller. This should only be considered in an extreme emergency, as doctors who are qualified to perform this surgery are hard to find. It is a very expensive, painful, risky procedure.
