Can I take any Ayurvedic medicines to help me grow faster?

Can I take any Ayurvedic medicines to help me grow faster?

No, it won't help: Ayurvedic medicines do not make a person taller. By age 17 years, almost all teens have stopped growing taller because the growth areas at the end of their long bones have "fused" or "closed". A teen's pediatrician can plot his heights (from several years back) onto a growth chart to reveal when the teen finished growing.

I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, i would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding. ...Read more

Are Ayurvedic medicines, especially those in which heavy metals are intentionally added safe ?

Caveat emptor: I just presented a case of a guy whose 'traditional practitioner' killed him with arsenic-laced medicines. Get involved with these people at your own risk. Some are ethical. Others are appallingly naive about the dangers they present to the people they are treating. Try to find someone who's regulated by an organization that you trust. ...Read more
