A human's height is determined by a number of factors. Genetics isfirst and most important. If your parents are short, you areunlikely to ever bump your head walking through a… doorway. A tallgrandparent might give you some hope. Your genes determine themaximum height you can potentially be. Other factors can prevent you from reaching that potential. Growingto be as tall as you can is mostly a matter of avoiding things thatwill prevent proper development. This means that you need to eat a proper balanced diet thatincludes calcium-rich foods as well as protein to provide materialfor both bones and muscles. There really is no one miracle foodthat you need to reach your full potential height, it's a matter ofbalanced nutrition. Reasonable amounts of exercise should alsohelp, but care needs to be taken to avoid high-impact activitiesthat can injure bones and joints in the critical growth period.Swimming and running are good. Extreme weightlifting less so. Growth is controlled by hormones. Hormones are chemicals producedby various glands in the body. Their production can be affected byother chemicals, and so it would only make sense that the lessforeign chemicals make it into your system the better your chancesto be taller would be. As trite as that sounds, don't smoke, kids.Avoiding drugs and industrial chemicals is also a good idea. The above largely applies to teenagers. Humans generally stopgrowing by their early 20's. Any significant height changes afterthat are highly unlikely. A lot of people are very insecure about their height. There aremany companies out there trying to take advantage of that byselling "miracle pills", exercise systems, diets, and sillygadgets. Shoe lifts were all the rage about 40 years ago. Gadgetsare junk. Exercise systems can cause injury. Diets can affect yourbody, but not in the vertical dimension. None of this stuff willmake you taller, no matter what the sellers claim. There are no magic pills or potions that can increase your heightonce you have finished growing. Your height is predetermined inyour genetic make up. Pills can be especially dangerous. At best, these things will donothing. At worst, you risk unbalancing your endocrine system, andthat can get really nasty. Human hormonal balance is a delicatething, easy to upset and tough to fix. Hormone imbalances can causemen to grow breasts and women to grow mustaches. Use of growthhormones has been linked to cancer. Personally, I would take shortand alive over tall and dead from cancer any day. If you are a teenager and have a concern about your growth, see anendocrinologist. They can run tests and see if your glands areworking properly. If there is a problem, it is best to catch itearly to have the best chance of fixing it. The tests involvechecking hormone levels. The answers can only come from a lab andnot from a website. If you are an adult, you are pretty much stuck being the height youare. There is an extremely difficult and painful surgical method ofadding length to your limbs that involves breaking bones andgradually stretching them with special devices so that new bonegrows to close the gap. It's called the Ilizarov technique, andit's about the only thing proven to work. As any surgery, it isrisky, and no reputable doctor will do it unless you have a genuinecase of dwarfism. One thing you can do is dress well. Monochrome colors to maintain asolid, uninterrupted look. No short sleeves or shorts. Your best bet is to change your outlook. Short people have it great- they can drive smaller cars and pay less for gas. They use lessfabric for clothes. Besides, height is not what makes a person.Napoleon, being slightly less tall than the average Frenchman ofhis time, managed to conquer most of Europe. Nutrition: Foods rich in calcium (for bone growth, repair and strengthening), proteins (required for growth hormone production), zinc and vitamins Exercises: Mostly stretching exercises like the Cat stretch, wall stretch, sit up stretch, hanging, swimming and the yawn. Sleep: having enough sleep. Uninterrupted sleep at least 8 hours of sleep a day. I want to be over 6'8-6'11 I guess you have to eat the amount of food what the food pyramid says and exercise. That's what i heard as advice. No one can really make themselves grow taller because your height depends on your genes. But if you eat a balenced diet, your body will grow more compared to someone who doesn't eat as well.

I am a white guy and I just turned 18 years old and I am 5 feet 7 inches tall. My dad is 5-11 and my mom is 5-1. My granddad's are both around 6 foot and they both and my dad …said they grew in college. How likely is it that I will grow? Am I short?
No there aren't pills, but there are injections. (Mostly used on midgets).
Yes I have grown a lot taller since the start of mine you might stop growing at 16-18 depends on the person
Having a vitamin deficiency is likely to reduce your overall growth. However this does not work the other way around - consuming more vitamins than you require is unlikely to …boost your growth. I.e once you're consuming all the vitamins and minerals that you need, any further increase in the amount of vitamins/minerals that you're ingesting will have no impact upon your speed of growth.
Exercises A minimum of 10 minutes intense exercise increases adrenalin, lactate, nerve acidity and nitric oxide. This stimulates the production of the growth hormone not only …during the exercise period but also during rest periods. Since dehydration reduces the growth hormone production drinking enough water during exercise is important. Exercise equipment that can aid proper performance of spine and knee exercises for height increase are the door gym, inversion boots and table, ankle weights, weightlifting wrist wraps and the stationary bike. Knee exercises are great to induce growth in people who have crossed the age of vertical growth. Stretching exercises, hanging and sprints are by far the most efficient ways to grow taller naturally. Proper diet Carbohydrates and fats deactivate the growth hormones and should be avoided. Fatty foods like burgers and chips lead to obesity and make a person look shorter. Soft drinks, alcohol, junk foods and caffeine hinder growth and should be left out from the diet. Sugar drinks with high phosphorous content can cause calcium excretion through urine and must be avoided. Adequate sleep The growth hormone release by the pituitary gland reaches its peak one hour after you sleep at night. Sound sleep for 8-9 hours a day is hence vital for augmenting height. A comfortable mattress and a dark warm room help to induce deep sleep. Health supplements to induce growth Personally I took a good growth booster called " HELPO Growth Formula " It helps build up cartilage and bones and increase height. The product allows quicker absorption. It helped me alot to grow taller. These steps combined with a good posture can go a long way at making you appear and grow taller naturally.
You can grow taller overnight in DREAM. Actually adolescents grow taller overnight by micromicro millimeters. It is quantifiable.
It will help if you stretch your spine. Otherwise you have to wait till you get older and go through puberty.
To simplify your question, I think you meant "How can you not grow taller?" And yes I got the answer, to not grow taller, you're need to put a bit of weight, not much exer…cising going on and lastly having less sleeping like 6 hours of course. So ya but growing taller has many benefits to you, just sayin
