4) L-Arginine. Large doses, say > 7-9 g/day, of L-Arginine increase Growth Hormone output substantially. However, I recommend extreme caution for large doses (> 3g/day) as discussed in this link on Arginine. Dosages of about 2 g/day should be safe.
5) Glutamine. Studies have shown that ingested glutamine at levels even as low as 2 g/day can increase Growth Hormone output. CAUTION: It is possible that increased ingestion of glutamine could raise body levels of glutamate, which is a neuron-killing Excitoxin. Furthermore, glutamine is used by cancer cells for fuel and so theoretically - and this is strictly theoretical - glutamine could be slightly mutagenic.
6) Insulin. Watch your insulin: insulin is negatively correlated with Growth Hormone.  In other words, the more insulin floating around your system, the less Growth Hormone that you are likely to have. The insulin resistant state, where insulin levels stay perpetually high, of the Metabolic Syndrome is a Growth Hormone squasher as are high glycemic meals. Eating a lot of sugars and starchy carbs that cause your blood sugar and insulin to spike is anti-Growth Hormone. For this reason, be careful to not to eat a high carb meal right before bed because nighttime is primetime for Growth Hormone release. And, please, I urge everyone over the age of about 30 to read this link on the Metabolic Syndrome and find out to defeat insulin resistance.
7) Laughter. It appears Growth Hormone may be very sensitive to humor. In a study dating back to the 80's, subjects had an average 87% increase in Growth Hormone just from anticipating a humorous show.  A little laughter goes a long ways as they say.
8) Visceral Fat. Visceral fat and fasting insulin levels are also associated with decreased growth hormone. 
NEWS FLASH: A study in late 2009 showed that a gherlin-like drug called MK-477 increases Growth Hormone significantly to levels of a "healthy young adult".  The health media is calling it a Fountain of Youth - time will tell. Side effects seem relatively mild.
