Stammering, also known as stuttering is a speaking disorder in which a person repeats or lengthens a word or a phrase. It can also be understood as disfluency in speaking at a higher frequency than a normal person. In India, it is commonly known as Haklana. It is a severe communication problem that can reduce self esteem and self confidence. 

Causes of stammering 
It is difficult  to identify the exact cause of stammering but some factors which are involved include-

  • Head injury 
  • Stroke
  • Tumor
  • Language skills not properly developed 
  • Neuromuscular problems 
  • Side effects of certain drugs
  • Psychological or emotional trauma

Some remedies for stammering

Yoga and asanas 

  • Jaw exercise: open the jaws as wide as you can with no pressure. Keeping the jaw open, touch the roof of the mouth. Being in touch with the roof of the mouth, drag the tip of your tongue towards the back of the mouth. Stretch it to the maximum without hurting and keep this position for a few seconds.
  • Practice ujjayi pranayam, 15 - 20 times daily.
  • Do Udgeet pranayam. It includes chanting OM while breathing. For best results, do it 21 times early in the morning after waking up.
  • Practice Simhasana. Do this 15 to 20 times a day.


  • Eat one Amla daily. These are rich in iron that aids in proper blood circulation to the speech organs and makes the blood thinner which results in the more clear and natural voice.
  • Bay leaves have some great healing properties, along with increasing the blood circulation and keeping the neurons healthy and balanced. For better results in stammering, wash a medium sized bay leaf and place it under the tongue. The saliva in the mouth will get mixed with the nutrients in the leaves and will result in the stimulation of cells in the mouth and reduction in stammering. 
  • Include dates in your diet. They have positive and effective results in the stimulation of mouth cells that makes the voice more clear. Regular consumption of datea will result I'm better results.
