Ayurvedic View Point of Stammering or Stuttering

Stammering or stuttering can be correlated with excess of vata dosha in the body. The excess of vata dosha can interfere with the nervous transmission of signals and thus can cause problems like stammering. Moreover, the causative factors like stress, anxiety, emotional problems, inappropriate reactions by families, speech and motor difficulties are the reasons for vata aggravation as well.

So stammering can be well managed in Ayurveda using some medhya herbs. These herbs like brahmi (Bacopa monnieri), shankhpushpi (Convolvulus prostratus) and others really help in vata anulomana and also have their impact on enhancing neuron transmission.

Types of Stammering and Effective Herbal Remedies for Stammering


Stammering or stuttering is a speech disorder that is also by name of childhood onset fluency disorder which includes major and frequent problems with flow of speech and normal fluency. People who suffer from stammering know exactly what they want to say but cannot say it fluently and clearly in one go. Stammering makes people prolong a word, vowel or consonant sound or a syllable and may make them repeat the same word several times. They can also stop while speaking a sentence as they find it very difficult to speak a certain sound or word. Stammering can be seen normally in young children when they are learning to speak as their speaking and language abilities are not fully developed yet. However most of them outgrow this stammering problem as they grow and learn to speak correctly and fluently. But some children take this problem forward into adulthood and stammering becomes chronic and speech problems in them. In this article you can learn all about the stammering and herbal remedies to get it corrected naturally.


Stammering is also known by the name diffluent speech which is a speech disorder. It is characterized by uneven rate of speech, repetition of same words, syllables or sounds too many times, and halting production of speech. Many children gets this stammering problem at some point of their childhood but most of them do not continue to stammer as they grow into adults. Stammering can leave a child with low self esteem and inability to interact with people confidently.



As per Ayurvedic concept the body is govern with balance of tridosha, i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha and any imbalance in any one or combination of them causes diseases. Stammering is known to cause vitiation of Vata dosha.


Stammering can be classified into three types

  1. Developmental- This is very common and many children have this when they are younger than 5 years of age, however males are more affected. This types goes away as the child grows.
  2. Neurogenic- In this type there are abnormalities in the signal process between the brain and the nerves or maybe muscles sometimes.
  3. Psychogenic- This type of stammering emerges when the part of the brain that governs reasoning and thinking do not work properly.


Some symptoms are very common and known to people like evident repetition of sounds, words or syllables and also disruption is seen in normal speech rate. People with stammering have trouble in starting a sentence or speaking a certain word. Along with these signs there are some other as well which you may notice like:

  • Physical changes like lip tremors, facial tics, frequent eye blinking and tense body language and facial expression
  • Refuses to speak
  • Jerking of head
  • Fists clenching
  • Frustrated when attempt to communicate
  • Repetition of phrases or words
  • Interjecting an extra word or sound like uh or um into the sentences

People who are suffering from chronic adulthood stammering usually stammer a lot in a high stress environment or social setting in comparison to when they are in a familiar environment or home.


There can be different causes for a person like:

  • Genetics- Stammering can run in families. There can be several genes involved in such cases.
  • Brain function- Development of the brains of people who stammer has been found to be different when seen in brain imaging as compared to people who do not stammer.
  • Speech motor skills- The people who stammer are slightly slow in making speech related movements. This breaks the fluency.
  • Environmental and situational factors- People who stammer are usually seen speaking normally when in familiar situations or people and stammer more when interacting with a group of people or are under any kind of stress or pressure.
  • Language skills- When a person is not fluent in a language they want to converse in, stammering occurs as it becomes difficult to organize a word or sentence resulting in pauses and breaking of sentence.


Diagnosis is usually made by a speech-language pathologist, i.e. a health professional who is trained to diagnose the speech and language disorders in children and adults and treat them. They take a complete history, observe the patient thoroughly and closely, ask them questions about stammering and rule out any other causes of irregular speech like Tourette’s syndrome.


Stammering can be treated differently as per the individual case, applying specific approaches as per the requirement of the case. Conventional methods do not cure the stammering but it can help in improving speech fluency, participating in social activities, school or work and developing and developing better communication. This can be attained by Speech therapy, electronic devices, Parent-child interactions and cognitive behavioral therapy.


As there is seen vitiation of the doshas in stammering, hence the restoration of the balance of these dosha restores the health. This balance can be brought back by the use of certain herbs which possess natural qualities to treat such ailments.
