A better knowledge of the type of stuttering you are dealing with is very important because it will help to determine the amount of your training or treatment. You need to discover if you are a covert stutterer or an overt stutterer. The treatment a covert stutterer will require will be different to the one an overt stutterer will need. However, whichever one you have, my advice is that you employ the use of natural methods when controlling it. Stuttering is a natural disorder and so will require a natural remedy to correct it. For the purpose of this article, I have written 3 distinctive natural methods of controlling stuttering, whichever one you choose will greatly depend on your body system and the readiness of your mind in accepting them. Let's see the methods!
Psychotherapy is the intention to treat mental and emotional problems with psychological approaches or methods. Most of these approaches include; slowing down the rhythm of your speech, reducing self-anxiety and panic, controlling what comes in and out of your mind and reducing the rate at which you think before speaking. Psychotherapy as a natural approach to controlling stuttering all points to your temperament. Since you control your stuttering, you need to work on your temperament and the best way to do it is by applying the psychological approach listed above.
2. Speech Therapy
This method requires you to develop the habit of doing some brain teasing activities. I wish to inform you never to underestimate the powers of your brain; it has the tendency of building you up positively when you recognize and give it what it requires to serve you. You can stimulate your brain to help you control your stuttering by developing some speech therapy activities such as singing while talking (that is talking as if you are singing), learning how to be articulate and rational in your thinking and finally reading out aloud. Speech therapy requires you to find out a means of keeping your tongue and mouth busy with words that can help them run at ease.
3. Breathing Exercise
Breathing is a major problem facing most stutterers. If you can have control over your breathing habit, then there is the possibility that you can control your stuttering. Breathing exercise requires you to develop the habit of breathing into your belly or taking enough air that will help to force or call up the words in your mind. When you breathe, do not rush to speak, allow the air to circulate round your belly, then start every speech or reading with soft rhythm while you gradually exhale the breathed air. Do this often and avoid thinking while doing it.
