THE QUEST FOR HEIGHT
Acupuncture increases height
(The Truth about increasing height)Height
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is the most abundant hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which is located in the center of the human brain. The pituitary gland secretes human growth hormone, which aids in a variety of health functions of the human body. Now you may wonder why is it that we supposedly need more HGH if our bodies are already capable of producing HGH?
What does HGH do?
According to researchers, our levels of HGH begin to drop around the age of 30. Over the years, our levels continue to drop at a consistent rate. In fact, some experts claim that our HGH levels diminish by as much as 80% or more over time.
When people are in puberty, HGH is much higher and it can stimulate the growing. So it means potentially, people can keep growing before 30 if the HGH is at high level.
Options for increasing HGH levels?
From what I can determine, there are 3 different ways to replace and/or increase your HGH levels:
• human growth hormone injections
• human growth hormone oral sprays
• herbal supplements which boost your body’s HGH levels naturally
What are the pros and cons of each method? Which methods actually work?
Let’s take a closer look…
METHOD # 1: HGH Injections
Evidence from several well-known studies does suggest that HGH injections do work; however, there are some drawbacks to using HGH injections.With injections, synthetic HGH is injected into the body, typically 2 to 3 times per day, 2+ years. The injections used are synthetic (scientifically engineered) HGH. In other words, it’s not natural. Anytime you introduce a large amount of a foreign hormone into the human body, there is the risk of side effects such as acromegaly, unstable blood sugar, etc.
In fact, in a July 5, 1990 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, it was found that some patients undergoing injections suffered from various adverse side effects. METHOD # 2: HGH Oral Sprays
There is no evidence to suggest that oral sprays work.With oral sprays, synthetic HGH is sprayed directly into the mouth. However, there have been several documented reasons as to why oral sprays are completely ineffective.
Sprays are said to be ineffective because growth hormone is a large, unstable molecule that can’t pass through membranes in the mouth. Also, administering the dosage is virtually impossible with a spray, though this is of lesser concern given that the dosage provided in a spray is well below therapeutic levels.
Furthermore, sprays contain potentially dangerous binders and fillers as well – additives which experts believe should be avoided at all costs.
Finally, oral HGH sprays are said to be distasteful, leaving an unpleasant taste in the mouth.
METHOD # 3: HGH Releasers (Herbal Supplements)
HGH releaser can stimulate pituitary to secret HGH. It is believed that the right combination of herbs can stimulate the pituitary gland, causing it to produce more abundant levels of your body’s own growth hormone. But unfortunately, since pituitary is passively secreting the HGH, it doesn’t control the amount of HGH. Often, it works on other different organs or tissues instead of growing.
Growth hormone depletes potasium and opposes the actions of insulin; HGH releaser may improve or worsen diabetic conditions.HGH releasers sometimes has the side effect of reactivating latent herpes virus infections.
Other methods to increase height:
Tibia bone osteotomy: break tibia: painful, expensive, imbalanced calf Ankle osteotomy: inject protein under periosteum: imbalanced gravity, hyperplasia, pain.
CAN ACUPUNCTURE/TCM INCREASE HEIGHT?
In common sense, acupuncture only works to muscle, meridian, organ, etc. it can’t work on bone.
But if practitioner does the proper way it can do:
1. Stimulate the pituitary to secret HGH Since it is activate body energy by acupuncture, body is positively secreting the HGH. The proper amount can be adjusted by body itself.
2. Guide HGH to work on the bone Even though HGH is increased by all the other methods, it doesn’t target to the bone, instead, most of time, it affect the endocrine system, other hormone level. That is the reason why other methods have lots of side effect. But according to TCM theory, bone is related to the kidney, and kidney is closely related to pituitary- gonad axis. So acupuncture/TCM can guide HGH to bone through TCM kidney.
3. Balance the muscle, tendon, bone After bone is grown, the structure between bone, muscle and tendon may change. Acupuncture can balance the tension between these tissues to avoid the spasm or stretch.
How fast does acupuncture/TCM work?
Only one sitting of 2 minutes per week 20 times acupuncture can increase 3-10cm People under 22 years old have 70% -80% chance to increase height People between 22-30 have 60% chance to increase height Since it is body self working, where is no guaranty how much can increase. But it is all natural and no side effect.
