๐Ÿ“ The Secret To Growing Taller – by Dr Sam Robbins


Hi, it’s Dr Sam Robbins, I’ve gotten a lot of questions from guys,
wanting to know IF or HOW they can grow taller. The good news is that you CAN for sure get
taller. I’ve done it a few times with people, especially
family members. However, the bad news is that what you’ll
discover today, obviously won’t work for everyone, especially if you’re over the
age of 25. But, even if you’re over 25 and want to
get taller, keep watching because there are certain things you can do and that’ll still
make an improvement at any age. Plus at the end, I’ll show you 2 simple
ways that can make you instantly look 2-3 inches taller. Things I’ve learned from some of my “shorter”
friends. What Causes Tallness and Shortness So the first question is, why are some people
tall and some are short? My dad is 6 feet tall. My oldest brother is 5’11”. My second oldest brother is only 5’8”…. While I’m 6’3” and my mom is 5’4” In my immediate family, it makes no sense. So, picking the right parent’s isn’t always
a guarantee, unless BOTH your parents are very tall. But I’ve always been tall, even before puberty. [I’m the tall guy in the middle, played
“Center” for the basketball team, freshman year in highschool] However, genetics will always play a primary
role in everything, as does your hormone levels. Of course, you can’t change your genetics,
but you CAN improve your hormones and life-style, which can turn certain genetic factors on
or off. This would be considered “epigenetics”. I don’t like to make things complicated
or boring because there are lots of various hormones, enzymes, peptides and so forth which
all play a role in height. However, the main hormones are Thyroid, Estrogens
and Growth Hormone and IGF. So, let me get right to it. Why You’re Short In boys, high estrogen levels accelerates
the fusing of the bone and stops the growth plates from maturing. I’m sure you’ve heard “short fat, bald
and hairy” to describe certain guys. Well, the “short and fat” part is from
high estrogen. The “bald and hairy” is from high DHT
(dihydrotestosterone). And when both of these hormones are elevated,
testosterone levels drop. So that’s 3 negatives! So, the first goal is to have normal or low/normal
levels of estrogen. Definitely NOT “high” levels. Secondly, you want to have high Growth Hormone
levels, which will cause your bones to continue to grow, as long as the ends haven’t fused
yet, typically due to estrogen and older age. Lastly, you want optimal thyroid levels because
your thyroid gland controls many other hormones and conversions. Optimal thyroid levels will help more Growth
Hormone to convert to the more powerful IGF (insulin-like growth factor) Using Drugs
So, to achieve this optimal hormonal range using drugs, you would do a full hormone blood
test to see where your levels are. Then, you would take an estrogen or aromatase
inhibitor to lower, “high” estrogen levels. But NOT an estrogen blocker. You don’t want to block estrogen, you want
to lower the levels to a normal, but lower level. You would also take Growth Hormone as the
same time, along with small amounts of T4 and T3 thyroid. This is how it would be done with drugs. You would need a very smart, endocrinology
doctor to assist you with all of this. I know this formula works. I’ve seen it work a bunch of times. HOWEVER, I am NOT telling you to do this at
all and certainly NOT on own. I’m just letting you know what works, using
pharmaceutical drugs and working with a very smart doctor. Unfortunately, this method won’t be utilized
by 99% of people. So, let’s talk about how you can do it naturally. Natural Ways To Optimize Your Hormones
Remember, you can’t change your genetics, but the correct life-style will maximize or
minimize your genetic potential. Sleep The first thing you must do is get quality,
deep sleep every night. This is when the majority of your growth hormone
is released. Most people, especially growing teenagers,
don’t sleep enough. You must wake up on your own, NOT with an
alarm clock. Sleep also decreases stress hormones (such
as cortisol), which is very important for growth – both muscle and bone. Get to bed early, around 9 or 9:30 and sleep
till 6 am or longer. You must get a solid 8-9 hours of deep sleep. Look at a baby, it’s sleeping all day and
it’s growing the most. I’ll do an entire video about getting deep,
optimal sleep because it’s a super important topic for overall health. So, make sure you’re subscribed to this
channel, so you’ll be notified when the “sleep” video is released soon. Food – Protein
On average, people are taller these days, than they were a few decades ago. One reason is because we’re eating more
food. Because being malnourished, will for sure
cause a decrease in growth. However, you must eat GOOD, healthy foods
and NOT eat bad foods. Because most people are eating junk, empty
calories and thus, even though they’re eating more food, they are not getting enough nutrients
— which is slowing your growth. This means you need to eat a good amount of
high, quality protein. Grass fed beef and bison, pasture raised chicken
and whole eggs, wild caught salmon and similar foods. I would limit dairy, because I don’t like
it and I think milk is for babies and cow milk is for baby cows. Maybe small amounts of yogurt. Make sure you stop eating junk protein like
cold-cuts and pre-packaged foods and fast foods. They are horrible for your health and your
growth. Stay away from soy proteins because they increase
estrogen and decrease thyroid production, both of which prevent you from reaching your
maximum height. You can add in vegetable proteins as well
if you’d like. Food – Carbohydrates Carbohydrates are very important, especially
for growth. You need insulin to grow and insulin + thyroid
+ growth hormone=maximum IGF levels, which causes the most growth. Mother’s milk is primarily sugar and fat. So again, carbs are important. But you must eat healthy carbohydrates such
as vegetables, fruits, white rice, yams and legumes. Stay away from soda, packaged foods, chips,
donuts, sugars and white bread. They have NO nutritional value. Besides, high blood sugar and insulin levels
will cause negative hormonal changes. You want healthy blood sugar levels, not low
or high. Food – Fats
And let’s not forget about fats, they are super important. Fats help produce so many important hormones
needed for growth – muscle, brain and bone. Unfortunately, most people either don’t
have enough fats or they eat junky, unhealthy fats. Good fats are whole eggs, mono-unsaturated
fats such as macadamia and olive oil. Coconut and MCT oil is good. Small amounts of grass fed butter. Nuts are also good, especially walnuts and
almonds. So are avocados, flaxseeds and fish oils. Stay away from the seed and so-called healthy
vegetable fats such as canola, corn, sunflower, soybean, safflower and similar oils. They cause inflammation and negative changes
in your hormones. Read the labels and eat natural, healthy proteins,
carbs and fats Stay Away From Drugs Smoking, drinking and doing various drugs
will not help you get taller and can decrease your potential for maximum height. I also suggest staying away from caffeine
products such as energy drinks, coffee, soda and so forth because stimulants like caffeine,
cause hormonal imbalances and stress your nervous system. Not to mention, they disrupt the most valuable
formula for growth – DEEP SLEEP! Exercise Correctly
Exercise improves your hormones, which will help you get taller. And the less fat you are, the less estrogen
your body produces and thus, the taller you can get. Do whatever you want when it comes to exercise. Swimming is really good. Lifting weights is fine too, especially if
you do lots of pull ups and bodyweight exercises. Go for higher reps, at least 10-15. But, stay away from exercises that can compress
your spine – such as squats, deadlifts, overhead presses and shrugs. Take Extra Supplements I also suggest taking extra vitamins and minerals. Such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, a good b-complex
formula, vitamin C and D are a good start. Posture & Confidence Finally, don’t forget about posture. Stand up straight, chest out, shoulders back
and look straight. Don’t look down and slumped forward. Stand with confidence. You’ll for sure LOOK a couple inches taller. You can also put “lifts” inside your shoes
and wear boots or dress shoes, which have heals. The heal + the lift inside the shoe, will
easily add at least 2-3 inches to you. Now, some people will think “that’s cheating,
you’re being deceptive”. But, women wear heels all the time to look
taller, so who cares if you do as well. If it makes you feel better, then go for it. Lastly, stop comparing yourself to others. If you’re not as tall as you’d like to
be, that’s fine. Nothing you can do about it. Instead, focus on all the great qualities
you have, as well as the things that you CAN improve. Like staying in shape, having a great attitude,
and being successful in something that you really care about. Life isn’t fair. We all have things we like and dislike about
ourselves. If you can make improvements, go for it. If you can’t, then stop wasting valuable
time and energy on it. Thanks for listening and have a happy and
healthy day!
