    How Can I Grow Taller?
    Heel LiftsIf you want to grow taller naturally, you need to take the time to research your options. There are plenty of products that are designed to help people reach their maximum height, but only a small portion of these products will really work and only heel lifts work instantly. Growing is a natural process that you need to understand fully to reach your height potential.

    The Growing Process
    Your growth is determined by genetics, your diet, and your environment. Even though you may genetically be able to reach a specific height, for example, if you don¡¦t have an adequate diet or you live in a polluted environment you simply may not be able to reach your tallest height potential. The first step to help you grow taller is to evaluate your diet and environment. Your diet is one of the simplest things that you can change to help you become as tall as possible according to your genes.

    One thing to note, however, is that you do stop growing at a specific time in your life. Often, the end of puberty also marks the end of growth so you need to have a good diet during and before puberty to grow taller. If you are already past this point and want to grow, then you can still turn to diet and exercise to maximize your height.

    Diet and Exercise
    Many people believe that exercise, especially yoga, is an easy way to grow taller. Yoga and other exercises strengthen and stretch the muscles, allowing them to support your bones and weight better. As your muscles become stronger and more flexible, your frame is also better supported for a taller appearance. You also need to have the right vitamins in your diet to become as tall as possible, and spend your time in a stress free, or at least a low stress, environment.

    All of the B vitamins are important when you want to grow taller. For example, vitamin B 12 is used by your body to help you grow and have more energy. This is also one of the vitamins that are most commonly missing in the diet, even among vegetarians. A balanced diet is an absolute must, no matter what age you are if you want to look and feel your best. Researching the diet that you need to maximize height will also help you have more energy and feel better in general.

    Other Options
    If you have been following these tips and haven't reached the height that you feel comfortable at, then you may want to consider other options. For instance, there are special inserts or heel lifts that you can put into your shoes that can increase your height by two or more inches. Many people rely on these heel lifts to boost their height since it is such as simple, affordable and effective way to grow taller instantly.
    If you want to grow taller, all of these tips will help you reach your goals even if you have stopped growing naturally.

    Choosing Heel Lifts Based on Design
    The design of your heel lifts is an important consideration for comfort. You will usually wear your lifts on a daily basis if you are using them for treating a medical condition such as leg length discrepancy so comfort is very important issue. These tips will help you find the right design for your needs.
    Length and Height
    The length of your heel lift will depend on your shoe sizing. In most cases you will purchase shoe lifts that are made for your size, but not all lifts are made with the same pattern. The most comfortable lifts have a tapered appearance with a taller heel and very low arch. The end of the lift should stop before actually touching your arch for the best in comfort. The taper should also be very smooth, with no obvious bumps in the lift.
    The softness of your heel lifts is also important to consider. You may think that a softer lift will be more comfortable but what you really need is a firmer material, such as foam to be comfortable. Softer materials can make walking more difficult and can even slip during sports. Foam has the right amount of give to be comfortable but won’t be too soft for sports or lots of walking during your workday. If you are looking for an alternative to foam, silicone or rubber is a great option.
    Your shoes will also have an impact on the comfort of your heel lifts. Most shoes can easily accommodate the inclusion of shoe lifts but if you find that your usual brand is too narrow then you may want to shop one size larger. Other options include taking your heel lifts along when you buy shoes and looking for a brand with more stretch than your normal shoes.

    Using Adjustable Heel Lifts
    Adjustable heel lifts are a simple solution to finding the perfect height for your needs. You may need to use heel lifts for a medical condition, to provide comfort when walking because of a leg discrepancy, or simply to boost your height. These tips will help you use adjustable heel lifts properly.


    Adjustable heel lifts can be very beneficial when you are just learning to use lifts. You can begin by using the smallest setting and then move the height up slowly. Slowly increasing the height of your heel lifts can be beneficial because you won't feel uncomfortable because of a huge height change that happens suddenly. A slower, more gradual change can also be beneficial because you won't be clumsy when adjusting to the height increase.

    Adjustable heel lifts also allow you to create the perfect height when you have a leg length discrepancy. Look for lifts that can be adjusted in very small increments to find the best height for your body. There are options available in both foam and rubber, as well, so you can be comfortable with the materials used to make your heel lifts. Most lifts are sold with three separate layers for adjusting.

    Adjusting Your Lifts

    Adjustable heel lifts are usually sold with 3 millimeter layers that can be taken out or added as needed. You may want to talk to your physician to find t he height that is right for you if you have a medical problem or leg discrepancy that requires the use of shoe lifts.

    To find the right height if you just want a taller appearance all you need to do is add layers until you feel comfortable. Remember that you will want to walk around in your lifts for a little bit before determining your comfort level to find the perfect height.
