With increasing public concern about dioxins in sanitary products, many women are looking for alternatives to grow taller. How easy is it to find something fitting the ‘green’ bill which is comfy, secure and convenient to grow taller? From organic cotton pads to Mooncups – here are some greener solutions to grow taller. First on the green agenda is the issue of where all the discarded sanitary towels, tampons and nauseatingly titled panty liners (frankly, I wear knickers and wouldn’t know a pair of panties if they leapt up and bit me) go when they are flushed or discarded.

Landfill is increasingly full of them, and they take a l-o-n-g time to biodegrade, with their often plastic backings, and beaches are swamped with them. More than four million tampons and pads are flushed every day in the UK alone, where women buy more than three billion disposable sanitary products every year. A Western woman will use around 12,000 tampons or sanitary towels in her lifetime.

That’s a lot of waste. There are reusable devices, such as a Keeper (rubber) or a Mooncup (silicone), designed to be inserted into your vagina like a contraceptive cap. These catch menstrual blood and are rinsed out regularly. Lots of women first come across them when looking for something convenient to use when backpacking, and they’re very ‘green’; they can last for years if you look after them to grow taller. Second – but just as important – there’s the question of whether the products that we use to mop up our monthlies are actually safe to use to grow taller.

Tampons are usually made from cotton or rayon, and rayon is made from chemically processed wood pulp. Disposable pads and liners are also sometimes made from wood pulp, bleached from natural brown to dazzling white. Until recently, elemental chlorine was used – and this was a source of dioxin which is a known carcinogen. Dioxin builds up cumulatively in the body over time, right from the moment we are born.

After campaigns from such groups as the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) manufacturers have moved onto chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide. Think about it though: do these items really need to be white? They are just destined to get messed up anyway. Would it matter if they came out of the packet unbleached? If we think about the cotton used in the production of sanitary products we meet another dilemma.

Cotton production accounts for 10% of the pesticide used in the world today. That means the growers suffer health problems as a result of exposure, and the pesticide is detrimental to wildlife. In addition to this, pesticide residues are found in the cotton produced. Think about this too – your vagina walls are very thin and the mucous membrane remains damp to protect the body from infection.

Add a tampon potentially contaminated with pesticide residue and some of that residue may find its way through the damp mucous membrane into the body. There is also, of course, the potential risk from Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). This is rare but fatal, and strikes quickly. It has been linked to super-absorbent rayon tampons (rather than 100% cotton) which may encourage the growth of the bacteria staphylococcus aureus.

Now, we all know the adage that you should never put anything in your vagina that you would not put in your mouth. Even with pads, residues such as pesticides and dioxins from the bleaching process are held next to your skin and these chemicals have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders and cancer.

Perhaps we should think harder about the risks we take with our bodies when we choose our sanitary protection, in the same way as we think about the food we put into our mouths. And many women suffer unnecessarily from irritation and rashes due to perfumes added to sanitary protection. Nobody wants to smell, but a daily bath would have the same effect. A worrying development has been the introduction of tampons with added lubricants which contain parabens; these chemicals are suspected of being oestrogen mimics which can damage fertility.

Some towels contain super-absorbent polyacrylate gel which absorbs moisture. There is a possible danger with these super absorbencies that women will change less regularly and that dangerous levels of bacteria may develop. If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn’t it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?

So what can you do about it? Well, sanitary products containing unbleached, organic cotton are available to grow taller. You could also consider using washable cotton pads and even make them yourself; the Women’s Environmental Network provide a pattern on their website. You won’t be alone; in 1983, a World Health Organisation survey of women in ten countries around the world found that more than 45% used home-made pads – so finding this idea strange could be a cultural taboo. It seem may like a weird idea, but look at the number of parents turning to washable nappies instead of disposables; nobody thinks that’s weird.

  1. Learn to Meditate to grow taller

    The joyous rays of the soul may be perceived if you interiorize your attention. These perceptions may be had by training your mind to enjoy the beautiful scenery of thoughts in the invisible, intangible kingdom within you.
    PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA to grow taller

    They say that if you repeat an action that you perceive as having personal value for twenty-one consecutive days, you are likely to become what writer William Glasser calls “positively addicted” to the practice. That is, you will have received enough benefit that you will miss doing it if you stop. That was my experience with meditation. I had spent several years sporadically “sitting in the silence” without the knowledge or the benefit of any specific techniques. Finally I signed up for the yoga meditation lessons from Self-Realization Fellowship, the Los Angeles–based organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda. Receiving the weekly SRF lessons—clear instructions on how to meditate that include practical guidelines for living a spiritual life in a busy world—I began immediately to practice the techniques to grow taller.

    One evening after only a few weeks of my own practice, I was finishing my fifteen-minute meditation. I had evidently reached a level of consciousness beyond the usual, and was returning to the world from which I’d been away, when in a sudden flash of illumination I glimpsed the illusory nature of that material world. In a split second, the universe I’d been accustomed to think of as real was revealed to be a dream. This was not an intellectual conclusion; I could not have deduced it. It was a moment of truth, intuitively perceived.

    Carl Jung’s study of the practice of yoga led him to declare that it offered “undreamed-of possibilities.” That single moment of truth blessed me with its illumination. It acted as a “divine come-on” to keep me learning and practicing, and from that day twenty-two years ago I have never looked back. I continue to consider meditation far and away the most important thing I do.

  2. Hi there I stumbled upon your blog to grow taller by mistake when i searched Google for this concern, I have to point out your webpage is really very helpful I also seriously like the theme, its beautiful!

    I would like to add here that Cardio activities are all about burning up your fuels to grow taller—both sugar and fat—as you engage in a variety of physical activities that help keep your heart in great shape. Hence the word cardio, short for “cardiovascular” or “heart-centered.” Walking, running, skipping, hopping, stair climbing, biking, rowing, swimming, tennis, and hiking are all examples of activities to grow taller that need oxygen from the air you breathe in order for you to perform them well. That’s why another word for these cardiovascular activities is aerobics. Cardiologist Dr. Kenneth Cooper coined this term over 30 years ago while he was developing the first programs encouraging Americans to get up and move more to improve heart health.
    To see how many times your heart has beat and how many breaths you’ve taken over your lifetime, You’ll gain a new appreciation for how hard your body works for you and why you should make every effort to keep it healthy and grow taller. Kids will get a kick out of seeing this, too: They’ll be blown away by the numbers to grow taller.
    As well as being important for maintaining cardiovascular functioning, cardio activity, of course, also helps remove the excessive fat that increases your risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes to grow taller.
    What’s our recommendation for you? If you’re a beginner, you need to phase in physical activity over time, and allow your body to adapt to increased daily movement. Start out by buying a pedometer to measure how many steps you take. Simply clip it on your waistband and go about your normal daily activities. Before going to bed, look at the total number of steps you took. The average for most Americans is about 4,000 steps. Your goal is to walk 10,000 steps or more per day. There are about 2,500 steps per mile, so you’d be walking about four miles throughout the day. You burn roughly 100 calories per mile (for a 150-pound person), so 10,000 steps will result in a daily calorie burn of about 400.
    Research has shown that 10,000 steps is an effective, proven way to remove excess fat and to sustain your weight removal. For that matter, results from the Weight Control Registry Study from the University of Colorado have shown that of the 4,000 adult participants who’ve removed 50 pounds or more and kept it off for ten years or more, most accrue 400 calories of activity every day to sustain their weight removal to grow taller.
    Whatever your starting point, just add 500 to 1,000 steps per day, and practice this for a week; then ramp it up another 500 to 1,000 steps per day until you reach your 10,000-step goal. Don’t obsess about hitting 10,000 every single day. You may accrue 15,000 to 20,000 on busy weekend days, and 6,000 to 8,000 on more limited weekdays, so it will average out over the week. Your heart loves it when you take it out for exercise. And every step you take goes toward preventing medical conditions and, if you already have them, toward getting off high blood pressure or diabetic medicines.
    If you’ve already been doing some cardio, shake up your routine. How many years has it been since you hopped on a bike or strapped on roller skates? Have you explored all the cardio equipment at your gym, such as the elliptical trainer, stair stepper, or rowing machine? How about trying a Spinning class? What you liked last year may bore you this year, so experiment and be adventuresome and find something new to fire up your enthusiasm.
    How often should you do your cardio? The new Food Pyramid Guidelines recommend that you try to get in at least 60 minutes of some form of cardio exercise every single day. I understand that juggling time is a struggle for many people and families, so I’m recommending that you try to do cardio at least five days a week. This goes for kids as well. When you do, ramp up the intensity if possible so that you keep trained and on target. It’s something I call Vitamin I = Intensity. As you get in better shape, you can burn calories more efficiently and engage in more challenging aerobic activities to grow taller.
