The entire human organism is controlled by the hormones. Every system, every organ, every tissue, every cell is guided in its functioning by hormones. Any imbalance results in disease. In children, various hormones, many minerals & nutrients play the role in good height growth. Hormones are the products secreted by the endocrine glands. The endocrine glands are ductless glands which discharge their internal secretions directly into the blood stream & greatly influence the relationship between our mind and body. Various ductless glands of the body are the pineal, the pituitary, the thyroid, the parathyroid, the thymus, the adrenals, pancreas, ovaries and testicles. Height, stature, the shape of the face, the appearance, intelligence, bodily development, the complexion, the colour & characteristic differences between men & women, such as the temper, the voice, the growth of the hair, mental & physical capacity, the formation of the body & even the emotions are regulated by the functioning of these glands.
HGH is a substance produced by a gland in the brain called the pituitary gland. This gland is often called the master gland because it controls many of the other glands in the body. It is about the size of a pea and it lies above the roof of the mouth, beneath the brain. Growth hormone prompts the liver to make a substance called insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). These growth factors, along with growth hormone itself, travel through the bloodstream and cause growth and development to occur throughout the body. Major organs that synthesize IGF-1 are the human placenta, heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas, spleen, small intestines, testes, ovaries, large intestines, brain, bone and pituitary. Improper secretions of the pituitary gland & shortage of hormones may result in abnormal growth.
The growth plate is the area of growing tissue near the end of the long bones in children and adolescents. Each long bone has at least two growth plates, one at each end. The growth plate determines the future length and shape of the mature bone. When growth is complete, sometimes during adolescence, the growth plates close and are replaced by solid bone. Whether a growth plate is still open or not can only be known by for having an x-ray done. For those whose growth plates are still open, an increased amount of human growth hormone can lead to height increase. Growth hormone does not only serve to increase children’s height, it also helps transform fat into muscle. It helps to build up and maintain bones and to maintain other organ functions.

Yoga is the safest way to boost human growth hormones without any side-effects. The proper growth and functioning of the various parts of the body is possible only when there is a balanced secretion of all these hormones. Asanas balance the hormonal secretions from the various glands & affect the function of the pituitary & so do various breathing exercises that stimulate the brain. Any Asana where the head is lower than the heart will result in increased blood flow to the brain and benefit the pituitary gland and its functions. Asanas recommended for increasing height are Suryanamaskara, Sarvangasana, Matsyasana, Halasana, Paschimottanasana, Dhanurasana, Chakrasana, Sethubandhasana& Usthrasana. Pranayama like Bhramari & Ujjayi are very relaxing to the brain. When the human mind is relaxed and stress-free, it will increase the production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH).
Besides Asanas & Pranayamas, proper diet for your bones & muscles & an adequate quantity of sleep are required in increasing your height and make your body stronger. During deep sleep, growth hormone produced by your pituitary gland is released into your blood stream and travel through your body and causes the thickening and lengthening of your bones. A proper diet for height growth would include water, protein, carbohydrates, iodine, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Do not forget to laugh because Laughter has numerous healing powers and is also the best medicine for generating Human Growth Hormone.
The Sethu Bandhasana enhances the functioning of your endocrine system which regulates secretion of hormones. It increases flexibility and elasticity of your body, strengthens the lower back, abdominal muscles and opens the chest. It is effective in promoting relaxation and reducing stress. The legs and the hips do most of the work which helps in rejuvenating tired feet.
Lie down on the back with your arms at your sides, palms facing downward. Bend your knees, bringing the soles of your feet closer to your buttocks. The knees & feet should be apart. Breathe normally.
To begin with inhale, raise your hips and waist upwards maximum so that you can make a space for your elbows. Place your hands on the spine. Slowly straighten your legs one by one. Try to join your feet and knees. Feet flat on the floor. Hold this position for as long as you are comfortable with normal breathing. To return to the starting position, fold the legs, remove the hands, and slowly lower your hips till they touch the floor. Straighten your arms and legs so that you are lying flat on the floor.

If you are feeling uncomfortable while doing Yoga Asanas by yourselves or suffering from some ailments, consult a yoga expert.
