the height you will grow to is dictated by your genes. the only way to alter that final height is to grossly undernourish yourself, and in doing so make yourself grow shorter - this would bring with it substantial serious health problems though, and is definitely not recommended! (for example, undernourished bones may not grow to their full length, but they will also develop osteoporosis, and be more likely to break.)

there is no way to grow taller than your genes have determined. even human growth hormone will not make you do so - it will simply bring you to your final height more quickly. but it will not make you grow taller.
