  • Body Inversion
    • natural height increase
      Body inversion can be done either with the of an Inversion Table or Inversion Boots. When your body is inverted upside down, gravity stretches both the spine and knee cartilage at the same time. It is likely that you will be able to be invertd upside down much longer than hanging on a bar with hands which only last as long as until your arms got tired. While inversion table is not cheap and requires operating space, it has shown excellent result for those who use it consistently.

  • Swimming
    • To lengthen your spine while swimming, you should consider doing the breast stroke. It is the ideal stroke because while your legs are kicking one way, your arms are stretching you the other way. Since this is happening at the same time, this helps lengthen your spine as opposed to other swimming strokes. The second reason swimming is good is becuase being in pool of water effectively neutralizes the effects of gravity on your spine.

    • Raise the bottom part of your bed where your feet are by 2-4 inces in height. This way you use gravity to pull your spine up as opposed to when you are standing and gravity pulls your spine down. With your head below your heart, you will also allow gravity to force better blood flow to your thyroid gland whcih can help in the production of growth hormone.
