Is there a herb that is known for helping in height growth for children. My son is 15 and is shorter than average.

No, I donīt know of a herb that will help your child to grow taller. It could be that he is later than average in growing taller, or that his genes have predetermined that he will be under average height. You can consult a medical or clinical herbalist or a naturopath for a full assessment of your son. This can determine whether his diet is adequate and whether he has a hormone imbalance that can affect his height.
