Hello doctor,

Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

Well, spirulina is rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein. It will help you in the overall improvement of your health. Not exclusively for height, and Barbara carb is specially used in children for growth. Continue with all the exercises that you are doing. You can continue with Ayurveda medications for another set of months. Have patience and there will not be such an incredible increase in height in just a few months. Your body needs time for every developmental stage. Engage in outdoor sports activities. Start stretching exercises of the spine. Have lots of milk and water every day.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
