* Permanent height gain is impossible! Those who go into space, however, gain some height because of the lack of gravity -- but this is temporary. Sorry! Your genetics predetermines your height.

* Some people thing that if you stretch every day you will gain height, but this is unlikely. However, if you learn to walk with a straight back, you gain height.

* Perhaps use shoes with thick soles? Actually I think there are ways to potentially increase your size while you are still young and growing through diet and exercise (and maybe some risky hormone treatments). However, once you are full grown -- that's it. For more information, see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
