    I just read an article that claimed Ray Peat grew 1.5 inches by taking DHEA. Is that physiologically possible? Have any of you heard of this?

    Yes. Posture often decreases for poor reflexes. Better chemistry = less stress, less disk dessication = more height

    If I remember correctly, there is evidence that some of the steroids (like DHEA) support and are needed for growth, while the supposed "growth hormones" in the pituitary family are actually not needed for growth.

    How much do you take to achieve this effect?

    I would view increased measured height through improved muscular patterns ("posture") and better nourished/hydrated discs as a kind of restoring of actual height.

    Numerous people have done this through the somatic arts, working with better muscular use. It's a small amount (an inch or two) unless there was a severe imbalance previously. I've seen smaller gains with better disc metabolism.

    I don't know cases of notably increased height after skeletal maturity (closed end plates) in other ways. I found this study, though:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21608025
    Surprising evidence of pelvic growth (widening) after skeletal maturity.
    Berger AA, May R, Renner JB, Viradia N, Dahners LE. J Orthop Res. 2011 Nov;29(11):1719-23. doi: 10.1002/jor.21469

    I do not recall this statement by Dr. Peat but have not heard all interviews.

    So how do we re-open our growth plates?
