Sir I have stammering problem from childhood. How to cure this problem. Please suggest me.

M.Phil - Psychology

Stammering can be overcome with regular practice. You have to talk more without fear. Because social fear is one of the most psychological cause for stammering. So, develop your confidence, nobody is perfect and we all learn from nothing. Try to spell difficult words and repeat them till you pronounce them properly. You have to talk more and more so that you can make your tongue work more faster. Don't think of people around you who laugh seeing you. Just tell them you are trying to overcome your stammering, they will surely help you. Try doing this you will surely see the great difference.

Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia) is the third largest mental health care problem in the world today. The latest government epidemiological data show social anxiety affects about 7% of the population at any given time Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people.  It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life.  It is chronic because it does not go away on its own. Anxiety reducing medications along with CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), can change the brain, and help people overcome social anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist and get helped. All the best.

MD - Psychiatry

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.

Speech Disorders - How Ayurveda Can Help You?

A large number of people in the world suffer or has suffered from speech disorders like stuttering or stammering at some point in their lives. Stuttering or stammering is the involuntary disruption or interruption in speech where certain sounds are prolonged or words are repeated. Speech disorder can cause a lot of problems in terms of personality build up and causes anxiety in people. Every activity of the body is dealt or controlled by the nervous system and the brain. Thus the proper functioning of the body is the sole responsibility of the brain and any glitch can affect the functions to a certain extent.

What are the symptoms of speech disorders?

  1. Words are repeated
  2. Prolongation of words or silent blocks
  3. Hesitation while speaking
  4. Difficulty while starting a word or a phrase

What causes speech disorders?

  1. Genetic problems
  2. Impatience
  3. Stress, Shame and Anxiety
  4. Embarrassment and nervousness
  5. Loss of control while speaking

Ayurvedic remedies to overcome speech disorders:

  1. Brahmi Oil: It is a stimulant that is known to calm your mind and boost the function of the brain. Take 10 ml of the oil and warm it. Cool it down to a suitable temperature and apply to your head when it is lukewarm, half an hour before going for a shower. You can also apply it before going to bed and shampoo the morning after. This is more effective.
  2. Black pepper, almond and sugar candy: Take black pepper, and make a paste out of it. To the paste, add 7 ground almonds and mix it with sugar candy. Consume this paste every day for at least a month.
  3. Amla: It is an effective remedy, especially in children to stop stammering. Also known as Indian Gooseberry, it should be chewed on to slowly every day.
  4. Cow's Butter: Also called as ghee, it is responsible for brain development and is known to increase memory. Add this ingredient to your food.

My problem is my talk. I do not perfectly tell the sentences and my tongue was struggled. please help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Write down small sentences and read it aloud when alone at home. Keep doing this at least for a month. Also read a few paragraphs from books, magazines and news paper, aloud while alone. It will give you some practice to talk consistently and your language skills will also improve. Try reciting sanskrit shlokas which will train your tongue. You may also consult a speech therapist.

It will automatically cure as you will grow older and be a man. So, don't worry. It's a temporary condition.

I have difficulty while speaking. The words that I say becomes unclear for other. I feel more saliva comes from the glands and causes my speech difficult to understand. Does have anything to do with lack of drinking water or a lack confidence I don't go for the latter case because it happens during a casual talk.

Overcame Stammering problem please Advise? I am 20 Years Oldd. Problem As 1 Year Old To Continues, please Answer in Telugu Translation plzzz advice.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering 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. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

I am a 17 year old male. I have been stammering since 5-6 years. I am confused between hypnotherapy, psychotherapy speech therapy etc.

MPhil (Clinical Psychology)
Psychologist, Chennai
Stammering has very many reasons behind. It falls under neuro-linguistic problems. Many a times its behavioural, due to anxiety or fear. Try breathing techniques, meet a psychiatrist who might treat you with medicines or will advise to meet a speech therapist. The basic cause need to be find out. You need a detailed evaluation. Psychotherapy should also help you with a clinical psychologist after proper psychometric analyses finding out the route cause of stammering. Take care.

When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my Point across effectively. However, every time I Open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total Idiot. Everything always comes out wrong; Nothing ever comes out right. I can never get Across what I am trying to convey. People never" get the point" of what I am saying; it's very Frustrating. I have a lot of intelligent thoughts And good ideas, but if I try to express them Verbally, it always sounds really garbled and Disjointed. I am eloquent when I write, but When I talk, I stammer and fumble and look like a Fool. What is the reason for this?

Dear sir expression of thoughts can be either emotional or conceptual among the conceptual expression of thoughts, there are two variants 1. Through writing 2. Through speaking so, there are three neural circuits in brain that express that you feel and the three neural circuits are in various stages of development in various individuals so some are good speakers but poor writers some are good writers but poor speakers some are good writers as well as good speakers some are neither:) (same way, some people would like to read a mail to know the response. Some prefer a phone call. Why? it is because just like how you have various pathways for expression of thought, there are various input pathways too. Those whose neural circuits for symbols is stronger prefer a sms or mail. Those whose neural circuits for sounds is stronger prefer a phone call) now coming back to your problem your neural circuits that deals with speaking (from brocas area) is" relatively weaker" than your intellect and the neural circuits that deals with writing which are very very strong. So you are finding it difficult to talk but, please wait your speech pathway is not really weak. It appears to be relatively weaker because your thinking and writing circuits are extremely strong. In other words, you think faster, your hands are able to cope up with that speed, but your mouth is not yet coping up, and hence you stammer. The good news: a person with good intellect and good writing skills (as evidenced from your question) can easily develop his speech too. All it needs is self confidence [which I have given here ;) ] and practice [which you have to do] start practising today. Sorry, now itself:):):) best wishes for a successful career.
