    I was thinking, does a higher arch of foot lead to an overall increase of height in humans? And how can I achieve a higher arc? I want to be taller. Maybe I could inject synthol in my heels? Or maybe there is a way to increase thickness of heels permanently?


    Thanks in advance

    How much extra height could modification of the anatomy of your feet actually give you? If you want to be taller, I suggest doing stretching exercises every day. They worked for me.

    I'm 6'3. Just a little above average. Tall enough, though, that people are constantly asking me to get things for them. At work, grocery stores, putting away dishes. It's not all that great having a few inches on the average person. Plus, past 6'6, you start to frighten people.

    Please don't do that. You'll look like something out of a Tolkien book with 2 inches of gel in your soles.

    I think the only modification you need to do here is a mental one. Just learn to accept who you are. My wife is 5'0 barefoot and she doesn't complain. I can't tell you how many times I've come home and found her standing on the counter top trying to get a casserole dish.

    Apply lateral thinking.
    Carry a chain saw and cut everyone else off at the knees.
    That way you'll be taller than all other people.

    You could always jump on objects, boxes, buckets, etc. Or just carry a small stool with you, for all your daily travels.

    Stretching your arms might be another practical option.

    There's a scene in Gattaca that comes to mind.

    Height is genetic for the most part. Although I can see what people are saying about the stretches... I read that astronauts typically gain a few inches in height due to the expansion of the disks in their vertebrate because of the lack of gravity (run on sentence ). Conversely, I hear marathon runners lose about a 1/4 inch in height due to the constant compression, so try to avoid those... But like Flick Montana said, just learn to be comfortable with your height.
