Treatment for Slow Growth

In my hometown, those of small stature during adolescence would go to a TCM doctor.

He would cut up an area in their palm between index and middle finger, and take out some small, yellow stuff similar to chicken gizzards. Then the person would grow taller.

It is pretty effective, many people have tried it and saw good result, including myself- My parents are no more than 5’5″, but I am over 5’9″. But nobody could provide a good explanation.

Later I found a possible explanation online:

Modern medical research believes that acupuncture at Sifeng (EX-UE 10) acupoint can increase saliva secretion and effect of saliva amylase, and increase content of trypsin, pancreatic amylase, and pancreatic lipase in the intestines, thus enhancing digestive function.

For those with malnutrition and rickets, after acupuncture at the Sifeng acupoint, it was found that content of both serum calcium and phosphorus increased, while alkaline phosphatase activity decreased.

As a result, the product of calcium and phosphorus increased, which helps bone development and growth in children.
