|GROW AS YOU LIKE.|
Once, while helping Napoleon retrieve his hat from a tall coat hanger, the emperor’s adjutant noted that it was easier for him to accomplish the task because he was the taller of the two. The vertically challenged Napoleon instantly parried: “Idiot! You are not taller! You are longer!” All the irritation that the presence of tall people brings out in the shorter ones came through in this response. Indeed, people of below average height, especially men, consider their height to be a physical defect. They often develop an inferiority complex and always remember the insults dished out to them by those who are taller and stronger. One can argue that there are advantages to being of below average height - those individuals tend to live up to ten years longer than their taller counterparts. One can even show that short people, more often than not, attain the highest social status, and one can list larger than life personalities in politics, culture and science who were anything but giants in real life. However, to those who consider themselves short, all these examples are a mere facade, while on the inside there lies a dream - to be or at least to look taller and by extension more attractive. Anything becomes fair game: special shoes, haircuts and clothes - all directed towards a single goal - to look a little bit taller.
growth - reality or a dream?
Where are these inches lost, and how can the loss be stemmed?
of the reasons for stunted growth is inadequate diet. The lack of balance
between proteins, vitamins and trace minerals in the child’s diet limits
height. The following is just one piece of evidence to prove this thesis.
Natives of Asian countries, who are usually of below average height, upon
assimilating in the United States produce children who are considerably
taller than their counterparts growing up in the native land. The main
reason for that is a wholesome diet containing the proper amount of all
the substances necessary for growth.
What parents can do?
The parents can figure out some of the reasons that are slowing down growth. One has to look at one’s children carefully with a bit of detachment. You should immediately consult a specialist if your child is lagging in height, if he is overweight or has problems with posture or gait, if he is physically weak and is not well coordinated or gets tired quickly. The earlier you do it, the better.
What is the basis for the methodology of growth?
The complex interconnections between a balanced diet, special exercises and sports in conjunction with other influences, which used in synergy can activate the body’s own growth hormones, form the foundation of the methodology of growth control. Furthermore, usually by certain age the areas of growth of the spine and bones harden. This stops growth. However, if these areas are ‘irritated’, the process of growth can be extended. With this in mind, it is important to know which influences and what type of diet should be employed at a particular age. Disregarding that can yield results opposite to the desired effect - instead of increasing height, growth can be stunted. Let us emphasize once again - success can be achieved only in case of strict individualization and selectivity of the medicino-biological and methodological systems. So far, there is no other way! There are no effective non-hormonal pharmaceuticals for growth stimulation. Same goes for vaccinations, which would raise the body’s ability to withstand unfavorable environmental conditions. There is, however, hope to attain those goals in the future. This doesn’t mean you have to wait and not start helping your children now. You would definitely prefer your children’s gratitude to their lifelong disappointment of knowing they could have been taller and better physically developed had their parents paid more attention.
accept the fact that some will read this article with skepticism, while
others will agree with the provided data. Our goal is to formulate the
problem and suggest a solution. However, we strongly recommend that all
parents take the following step: find out now the projected height of
your child and his/her probable physical parameters at 18-20 years of
age. Even for a newborn child it is possible to accurately predict the
probable height first by 3 years of age, and then find out how the child
will develop by 18-20. The result of such test should be the starting
point for parents on the way to helping your child to attain the desirable
height. In case of a favorable prognosis minimal effort should suffice.
However, if the results of the test prove to be undesirable, then an individual
program can be developed for your child with the help of a special computerized
system. This comprehensive program will include physical exercises, some
types of sports, diet, vitamin therapy, all of which collectively stimulate
growth and all around physical development.
