The quickest way in how to increase height is by wearing shoe lifts. If you Google “shoe lifts,” a number of links will show up in the search; shoe lifts can be purchased online and come in heights ranging from one-quarter inch to two inches. They fit inside shoes and give you extra height without people knowing. However, lifts over and inch and a quarter will make it difficult to keep your feet in the shoe while walking. Bigger lifts are best used inside boots. But then you may have difficulty getting your feet in and out of the boots.
If you’re a man or woman wondering how to increase height, another way is to keep your vertebral column regularly stretched in a vertical position. Height shrinkage can result from bad posture and a stiff spinal column. Grabbing a bar overhead and then lifting feet off the floor, will pull vertically at the spine, loosening things up, and perhaps creating a little more space between some of the vertebral bones. But don’t expect to go from 5-5 to 5-10 doing this. This technique may result in minor height increase only if your vertebral column is “scrunched” from bad posture in the first place.
If you’re a man or woman, regardless of height, wondering how to increase height, practice good posture wherever you go. Bad posture can “model” or “mold” your back into a permanently slouched shape, deducting an inch or two from your height. If you are a child or adolescent wondering how to increase height, there is more hope for you. A back doctor should give you a thorough exam to see if you have a condition called kyphosis.
Kyphosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that results in loss of height. It can be corrected by wearing a specially-made back brace. But the brace works only on growing bodies. Adults with kyphosis cannot benefit from the brace. Kids can help reach maximum height by eating plenty of protein from healthy sources like chicken, turkey, beans, nuts and eggs.
Finally, for anybody wondering how to increase height, you can wear hairdos that add a good inch. And of course, women always have the option of wearing high heels that are concealed by long pants.
