Should I use AYURVEDIC height increase medicines ????

Patient : Hi I'm 17 years old , am 5'4" and am quite desperate to increase my height by 2-3 inches (min) . . . . Well my father is 5'8" but my mom is 5'1" . . . . . Moreover my puberty started a bit late . . . . Even presently i do not have complete facial hair (just a bit on the chin and a moustache)[alsomy father tells me that he grew upto 20 years of age] . . . .I do not want to use any hormonal drugs or any sort of operation . . . . I found on the internet a few ayurvedic products which claim to improve height . . . As far as I know ayurvedic products are much more safer . . . Should I use something as such or not ?????
