Q. Can I get any tips like diet, exercise to increase my height. Please help me. I am a postgraduate student. My dad is 5’5”, mom and my brother 5’6”, but I’m only 4’10”. I’m very upset with my height. My health is good but I don’t do exercise. Can I get any tips like diet, exercise to increase my height. Please help me.

A. I like to share the knowledge that I gained from the book. To increase your height, it is important that your blood is oxygenated as blood provides nourishment to your bones. Regular breathing will also purify your blood. Your bones need phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium while your muscles need water, protein and carbohydrates to grow. Since you are growing taller, both your muscles and bones are getting bigger and longer.
