Are you wondering how to increase height after 22? Trying to grow taller after 22 is not an easy thing since you are probably way past puberty.

Although you are not too happy with your lack of height, there is no need to give up hope. This is because there are still a lot of things you can do to boost your height naturally. The only thing you need to understand is this. Teenagers will obviously have a lot more options than adults who are 22 years or older.

With that said, don’t worry about your current age. As mentioned above, there are still a lot of things you can do to boost your height even if you are already way past puberty.

If you want to know how to grow taller after 22, let’s look at 2 important areas you should never neglect.

First, your diet is very important. No doubt about that. Although this seems to be common sense, I realized that there are some people who do not have the discipline to stick to a healthy diet even though they are trying to increase their height.

This is especially true for teenagers who are still growing and wants to maximize their growth. Even adults who want to grow taller must not neglect their diet.

This is because your bone health is critical to your height. If you don’t adhere to a balance and healthy diet, your bone health may be affected. This can cause people to ‘lose height’.

Always make sure you are eating foods rich in protein, amino acids, calcium and calories. Your body need nutritious food as a source of fuel to grow as well as to renew itself.

If you are wondering how to increase height after 22, the next important area you need to take note of is exercise.

When it comes to exercising to increase height, you really have to be careful. Not all exercises are created equal. If you ask me, I will agree that all exercises are good for health as long as you do them properly.

However, not all exercises are useful for height gain. You can do the wrong sets of exercises for months and still stay at the same height. Only certain exercises can help you grow taller.

So how can you tell which exercises do not work?

Well, a simple guideline is this. If someone tells you that you can stretch your bones by exercising, don’t believe the claim.

Why? The reason is because once you stop growing, your bones will stop growing as well.

Growing chamomile tea will not only  benefit your health, it will entice your senses. The scent of the tiny daisy like flowers of the Chamomile plant smell like freshly cut apples.  Chamomile should be a part of every basic herb garden. It is a hardy annual that adds beauty, attracts bees and butterflies due to the sweet fragrance the blooms give off, and makes a sweet flavorful tea. This is one of the pleasures of growing herbs.

One of the safest and gentlest of herbs, Chamomile has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. Ancient Egyptians used the ground flowers to drink for fighting colds, calming nerves and alleviating skin irritations.

Modern science is now proving that the ancient cultures knew what they were talking about. Here are nine reasons you should consider growing Chamomile as part of your basic herb garden:

  • Chamomile has proven anti bacterial properties that enhance the immune system. It can be used in a steam for respiratory ailments such as hay fever, sinus infections and asthma.
  •  Has been used to decrease inflammation. The unsweetened tea is used on the skin to fight acne, skin      irritations and bee stings.
  • Chamomile has been proven to have properties that relax the muscles. Taken as a tea, it helps with menstrual cramps and sore muscles. It can also be used in a bath, to decrease muscle soreness and improve skin irritations. The sweet scent from the bath water will also brighten your mood.
  • Chamomile when made into a tea is known for its calming effect and it often taken before bedtime to aid in a good night’s sleep.

More drinking and growing Chamomile tea benefits your health

  •  New research studies show that the tiny daisy like flowers may have a chemical that will decrease the complications of Type 2 diabetes. This chemical has an affect that increases the ability of the cells to allow sorbitol to pass through the cell wall. In Type 2 diabetes, the sorbitol builds up outside the nerve cells and eyes causing pain and blindness.
  •  A cup of Chamomile tea to rinse your hair after it has been washed will bring out the gold highlights in brunette or dark blonde hair.
  •  If you are an avid gardener and start your plants indoors, Chamomile tea sprayed on your plants will prevent the seedlings from developing any type of fungus.
  • Used in composts, Chamomile tea is thought to increase the calcium level of the soil.          
  • Chamomile is safe for babies and is often make into a tepid tea to ease gas pains and soothe a teething baby.

There is nothing more soothing and appealing to the senses than to experience Chamomile tea made right from the blooms out of your own garden. I drink dried loose leaf Chamomile tea in the winter. But, in the summer, taking time to go out and pick the blooms and smell the sweet scent relaxes me. As I wait for the tea to steep, I experience the refreshing scent of newly cut apples. As I taste my tea from the garden, it is a lightly sweet taste that I feel does not need any sweetener added.  I know that when I use the loose leaf dried Chamomile tea, I often use a spot of honey or a touch of apple juice.  

Drinking and growing Chamomile tea not only benefits your health, your senses. The addition of this plant will benefit your garden as well. I hope you will choose to make this herb part of your basic herb garden year after year.
