I am aged 39Y. I'm unable to speak since 12/01/2016. I have contacted ENT specialist and undergone STOBORNOSCOPY on 19/01/2016 as suggested by the doctor. The doctor has written stobornoscopy report that PHONOTARY gap is positive. Please suggest, can I able to speak or Not?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

A positive phonatory gap means the vocal folds fail to close during phonation. A phonatory gap may be seen in patients who have muscle tension dysphonia, vocal fold paresis or paralysis, loss of tissue, or vocal fold flaccidity. Treatment aims to rectify the cause.

Dear Prasad, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

If your father is having left vocal cord paralysis, investigations should be done to know the cause. If no cause is found ( idiopathic) one can hope for recovery with voice therapy within 1 to 3 months. Oral steroids may be tried.

My grandson is three and half years. He is absolutely normal health wise. He goes to play school and seems to enjoy. He utters words like Amma appa ayyappa. But is not coming out with sentences. Vocabulary is limited. Very cheerful active playful. Some say he has mild Autism. For three months he went through some sort of speech therapy. Slight improvement was found. Eye contact is there. Some times he does tow walking. Beta tests are negative. What could we do? Any advice?

Respected Sir. I would like to request you to please forget about giving your grandson a diagnosis, atleast for now. Autism is quickly becoming a sort of "fashionable" diagnosis among the upper middle class people. I would like to know why you believe that he has Autism and supposing he does, I am sure you have already searched on the internet and consulted many others and already learnt that Autism as of now has no definitive treatment. From what I could gather from your question, he does appear to have mild delays in certain areas of development which I think will improve if given adequate training in that area. Also it would be advisable to keep monitoring his IQ and also identify other deficits as he grows up so that they can be caught early and managed accordingly. I would advise you to be in touch with a Pediatrician, Neurologist and Psychiatrist for regular followup of your grandson.

Please Suggest me Homeopathic or ayurvedic medicine for stuttering (Problem to speech clearly)

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

For homoeopathic medicine just name of the problem is not sufficient. It required many details about you. So if you want permanent solution consult with details. You may try taking Causticum 30 1 dose everyday.

Yes. Stammer may be caused by stress and tension. Take relaxation training from a psychologist plus you do pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev on astha channel 5.30 to 7 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom, bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results!

The Voice of my father is coming very low, he doesn't have cold or cough. He was so speaking fine a few weeks ago. It's just in last one week that his voice was muffled and today it's almost suppressed.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Laryngitis is the most common cause of hoarseness and voice loss that starts suddenly. Most cases of laryngitis are caused by a viral infection that leads to swelling of the vocal cords. Other includes voice overuse, smoking, infection, GERD etc. Where inflammation of vocal cord occur which leads to difficult vibration of vocal cord leading to loss of voice pitch. The best treatment for this condition is to stay well hydrated and to rest or reduce voice use. Consult a ENT specialist to get evaluated and find out the underlying pathology.

Stammering: 11 Ways Homeopathy Can Help You!

Stammering: 11 Ways Homeopathy Can Help You!

Stammering or stuttering is a type of speech impairment where sounds or syllables are repeated involuntarily or there are unintended gaps in between words when the person is unable to make the desired sound.

People develop stutters due to genetic flaws, motor functioning defects, coordination problems or due to psychological stressors. The condition can result in anxiety, depression and withdrawal from verbal communication.

How does homeopathy help?

A stutter can be practiced away or corrected by speech therapy but there is no specific medicine that can be used to cure stammering. Homeopathic medicines can provide relief from the symptoms by fixing flawed nervous functions, improve motor coordination and modify the vocal apparatus. Different homeopathic treatments can be used depending on the nature of the condition.

The following is a list of homeopathic remedies and lifestyle changes that can be used to address the problem:

  1. Foods rich in vitamin B6 like nuts, fish, bananas and chicken should be consumed regularly by children who have a stutter to help with motor functions.
  2. Adults should avoid caffeine, tobacco and other recreational drugs as they cause hyper-stimulation of the nervous system.
  3. Stramonium (jimsonweed) can be used when the stammering is violent and the person distorts the facial muscles heavily in order to be able to speak.
  4. Lychopodium (clubmoss) can be useful for stammering as well as depression, memory weakness and sleep problems. This is especially helpful if the patient struggles with the last few words of a sentence.
  5. Spigelia is beneficial for a mild stutter at the beginning of a sentence, often followed by undisturbed speech.
  6. Causticum is prescribed when emotional excitability causes stammering, twitching of the facial muscles or problems in the vocal chords.
  7. Staphysagria can aid in reducing social anxiety which often causes stammering i.e. the stammer only happens while interacting with strangers or authority figures.
  8. Nux vomica (strychnine) is the medicine to use when stammering is a result of extreme stress or over work.
  9. Fright or shock often causes speechlessness or stammering. Aconite can provide immediate relief in such cases.
  10. Lachesis is an effective homeopathic medicine when the patient stutters over specific letters or syllables.
  11. Gelsemium is used to treat stuttering after severe viral infections when the patient complains of a heavy tongue and lack of general coordination. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I have stammering problem. Childhood time I difficulty to speak with others I am also taking speech therapy. Last 1 years But Therapy not effective. Pl give me solution and advise for I continue speech therapy? N recovery is possible.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

Dear friend there are great speakers and public figures who had stammering. EMS Namboothiripadu was one great leader who's speach had been heard by large audiences. One journalist asked him humoursly "Do you always have stammering. He replied with more humour that "only when I speak" So don't loose confidence. Proud of your other capabilities. There are speech therapy methods also to improve your stammering.
