To experience these wonderful benefits, there is no need to take dangerous or expensive supplements. There are a few things that you can do to boost your growth hormone levels naturally.
6 Tips To Stimulate Growth Hormone Naturally
1. Get At Least 8 Hours of Sleep a Night.
Growth hormone levels are elevated during sleep. Getting more sleep is a great way to speed up your muscle gain/fat loss progress.
A lack of sleep not only results in a decrease in growth hormone production, it increases a muscle wasting hormone called cortisol. This hormone actually destroys our muscle!
2. Perform Strength Training
Strength training is proven to be more efficient at stimulating the release of growth hormone more than any other form of exercise.
3. Perform the Big Lifts
When in the gym, it is best to focus on the big lifts. Exercises such as squats, lunges, deadlifts, bench press, chin ups and dips are the most efficient exercises at boosting our growth hormone levels.
4. Short Intense Cardio
Doing brief, intense cardio sessions are a great way to increase our growth hormone levels. They are far superior to longer, lower intensity exercises such as jogging.
5. Get Out Of Breath
Whether it is your strength workouts or your cardio, you want to push to the point where you are gasping for air. The build up of lactic acid and the out of breath feeling, are good indicators your training will boost your growth hormone levels.
6. Wait a While After Training Before Eating
You want to wait an hour or 2 before eating anything after a workout. This is because our growth hormone levels are elevated after a workout.
If we eat during this time, we risk increasing our insulin levels. This will automatically decrease our growth hormone levels. This is because growth hormone and insulin don’t work well together. If one is high, the other will be low.
Diet, Posture and Exercises
Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying sleeping, diet, posture and exercises are not important. They are actually major factors affecting your height: You need to eat the proper foods that give you the calcium and other vitamins and minerals for height increase. Get enough of sleep which is usually 8 hours a day for most people. Always keep a correct posture and do regular and appropriate exercises. But do you know massage which is base on Chinese acupuncture concept can also increase your body height?
The Theory Behind Massage
How can that be? It may seems massage do not have a direct relationship to our bones and spine. However, they can help stimulate the hormones and glands which is important to your body height.
Massage has been used for thousands of years in many different cultures as a way for body relaxation. In China, it is also used together with the theory of acupuncture. By massaging the different reflex points in various parts of our body, it can stimulate the production and function of hormones and growth.
Chinese medication, usually western doctors, focus on the holistic of a person. It is not a discrete separation of each part of our body, rather looking our body as a whole. Therefore when we talk about increasing height, we don’t just look at the bones and spine. We should look at basically every thing from what you eat, how you live and your emotional state.
Therefore one of the benefits of having massage is to relax your emotional state. Stress create a lot of free radicals, and damage our cells. By relaxing our emotion, we prevent the damage of free radicals. Although this is not a direct relationship with your height, it is the foundation of releasing the pressure and let your full capability to excel. Our height is one of the capabilities we can achieve.
The 2 Reflex Points Concern Your Height
Apart from releasing your full potential in body height, massage on the correct reflex points also has a direct relationship to your growth hormone. Because your neurons system is connected to the pituitary gland. By the stimulation of certain reflex points during a massage, signals will be sent from the pituitary gland to the thyroid. This leads to the growth hormone, one of the factors for body height, to work.
Amongst numerous reflex points, at least two major reflex points are related body height. One of them is located on the pad of your thumb, while the other is in your whole neck. You can rub these parts in a clockwise direction to stimulate your growth hormones. You may use a small handy device that applies our body’s Galvanic current to stimulate these reflex points. At the moment, this handy device is used for beauty and some health purpose, but I find it may also be used to increase the effectiveness of reflex points massage to achieve grow taller goal.
