Many believe homeopathy is an effective treatment option to combat various health ailments. Homeopathic medicines for height are also being popularized as effective substitutes for anabolic steroids.

Homeopathy and the Human Body

The cartilages in our body play a very important part in growth and height (1). Several experts state that it is necessary to feed the growth hormones with the right kind of food so that they provide ample support to the cartilages (now considered a vital element for the growth of the human body). Homeopathic medicines have the ability to promote better strength and durability in the cartilages so that the proper structure of the human body is maintained.

The spinal cord is located in the upper part of the human body. This structure also plays an important part in height growth. When a person is young, it is easier for him/her to gain a few inches. This is possible even when the bone plate fuses with the lower body! The breadth of the disk determines the length of the spinal cord; this actually affects the height and growth of a person. That is why it is commonly stated that if the disc is thicker, the person will be taller.
