I am not able to speak clearly and loudly. This makes me face rejection in interviews. I also lack confidence in speaking. Give me some tips to improve my speaking skill, Articulation skills and loud and clear voice.

General Physician,
These techniques will help you speak with confidence. Speak out loud. Develop intrapersonal communication. Try to imitate/emulate/reproduce/mirror/copy the speakers you admire. Watch news. Pick a topic to talk about. Paint a picture with your words. Watch the tv shows you like. Listen to podcasts. Also do speech therapy.

Hi lybrate-user, you feel that your voice has changed. Okay, many reasons may be, it may be due to maturity or due to overuse. Do not worry. Relax. Give some rest to your voice as well. In the meantime check with ENT specialist, if everything is normal, that is voice cords, tongue throat. Get back to me for further discussion along with the ENT check up results (meaning doctors suggestion). Everything will bcom normal. Time is there. Take care. Be cool. With regards,

Hello, as reported by you the answer to your question is in the question itself. You have to reduce your anxiety n fear. There is no reason to fear if you are talking to a person try to practice in front of mirror. Approach people with positivity no one is going to judge you. If stuttering persists consult a speech therapist. Regards.

at two an half months means around 10 weeks, it is safe to undergo MTP (medical termination of pregnancy), under the guidance of an experienced OG cian, done in an approved centre. Medical abortion can many a times lead to serious blood loss and loss of life is a common risk, so better go for surgical intervention.

Sir, I am suffering from stammering. Can you suggest me what should I do for that.

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.

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.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Soft voice is never a problem and in fact it is very good and desirable in many occasions in your career and socializing. Soft voice can be modified with the help of special training through speech therapy. I suggest counselling. Take care.

Hi, you definitely need to see a psychologist for help. Tell your parents frankly that you have been advised to consult a psychologist for curing the stammer. Am sure, they too will want it cured. Do not worry, with right treatment it can be cured fully. They teach ujjai pranayaam- a breathing exercise for stammer. No harm in doing, but must do alongwith watching on tv for correct procedure. In general, the program if watched and followed will do you tremendous good. God bless you!

Hi lybrate-user, One of the best herb for your vocal chord is Madhu Yasthi or Yashtimadhu. You will get caps or powder form of this herbs, use this regularly for better result and avoid cold and sour items. Kavala and gandusha with specific oils also helps, consult a doctor a detailed prescription Regards.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

Sir my self manjunath when I'm speaking my words or not correctly pronounced please help me.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Mr. Lybrate-user, I have a clarification to ask from you. When you say words are not correctly pronounced is it one of the following? 1. Getting stuck while saying a word and something like stammering while saying name, speaking to strangers etc. 2. Saying a different sound instead of correct sound like saying" tar" for" car" differentiation is important as the above two are different conditions but when many explain, it seems as same. Please clarify. Thank you.

Hello, you are advised to join the speech therapy classes. Repeat those words on which you stammer, means words which are not clear and don't hesitate after some time if you practice well then your speech will become better.
