In brief: Not for height

Homeopathy can help whatever the body can do.
If your growth plates are still open, you may still grow -- once closed, there is no further increase in height because that is your body's natural process. At 17, your growth plates may already be closed -- thus, homeopathy would not help you grow beyond this.

In brief: Growing up

There is no science or proof that any medication or supplements really help encouraging growth.
But, what we do know is that a diet high in protein is the best way to live so as to reach your full height potential.
