Has anyone tried the Grow Taller 4 Idiots program? I know you might think that this is a scam, but I have seen comments on "YouTube" and on "Yahoo Answers" that it worked for them. Does it really work? Some say that it works for some people but not for others. So, for those who tried it, any tips? Thanks!

Hello Alannah,

Even though I haven't personally used Grow Taller 4 Idiots (I'm 5"11 and fine with that) I wanted to try to answer your question in the hopes that it will help you make a decision about whether or not to try this program.  I wanted to put together some pluses and minuses to the idea.

The Grow Taller 4 Idiots program is not dangerous, at least not from what I can see.  It is comprised of essentially four pieces of "therapy" that make a logical sort of sense.

  1. Stretches -- The spine is often compressed (not a scientific explanation, but an understandable one.)  By doing the proper stretches you can put it back into the correct shape and gain height this way.  I suspect it is similar to what a chiropractor can do, but here you can do it yourself.  You are not actually growing, per say, but you are sort of expanding yourself.  This, to me, makes a certain logical sense and I would suspect any gain in height would depend on how long you kept doing the stretches as your spine...
