Hi, I am Vivek. My age is 23. Since 1 month, I am experiencing speech problem. Before that i was very fluent. When i speak in flow, i tend to substitute sounds(any sound), stumble,mispronounce words. I cant communicate fluently while talking even if i am talking in my mother tongue. I don't have much problem when i read but when i talk to others i face this problem. Even i try to talk to myself loudly, i face same problem.
I never had this problem in childhood. Even my family members don't have this problem. I have given many public presentations as well but how this problem has suddenly developed.
What could be the reason ? I am really very tensed.
For your speech problem, follow the ujjayi pranayam daily, twice a day. Then roar 3 times,(like a lion) very loudly, with mouth wide open and tongue sticking out. Massage your throat after roaring. Let me know your progress, when you notice the benefit.
Procedure: While breathing in, tighten throat(contract glotis) and there will be sound from back of throat, then drop chin(rest chin on chest), hold breath as long as possible.Then chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril.
Duration: 5 – 21 times
How to do Ujjayi
When you clear your throat, you tighten your throat and breath out, twice, with a pause in between. . Now if you reverse this, that is, tighten the throat and breath in continuously for abour 8 to 12 seconds, then hold your breath for 4 seconds with the chin down, then chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril, you have just done Ujjayi pranayam.You will feel like coughing initially.

Hi Vivek, sorry to hear about your problem. Sometime we stumble while speaking, specially when we don't have proper information on the topic what we are having discussion or when we lose self confidence or we lack proper communication skill. Different types of communication skills are required for different type of situation or purpose. Like for corporate meeting we need different communication skill than in a party or client meeting etc. You probably facing problem in your job also. So i can suggest you to go for a Corporate Speech language Pathology. It is a Communication Skill Enhancement program by Speech plus. Speech Plus is famous for correcting different types of speech problems. In this program you will learn various types of communication skills which will enhance your confidence in speaking. I hope this will help you to solve your problem.
