Tag Archive: Conditions and Diseases

What is Stammer and what are its causes ? Stammer or Stutter is not the disease itself but the condition or the symptom caused by  a disease / disorder. Causes for stammer and its intensity are individualistic.

Causes can be purely genetic, psychological or due to some sort of brain injury. Associated conditions with stammer that I have come across in my practice are depression, anxiety, lack of self confidence, frustration or so on….

Social issues they often have to deal with include humiliation, ignorance, bullying at workplace and school and much more. Family and care giver role is of significant importance in maintaining one’s self confidence and self esteem.

I have listed few suggestions for family and care givers as below:

  1. Stammer doesn’t mean that they have nothing to say. They have right to express themselves and speak in their own words. So, do not be hasty and take some time to listen to them.
  2. Don’t try to complete their sentences by yourself. Don’t burden them by your interpretations like.. “I understand. Do you mean to say that………!”. You might feel that this might be helping them out but in fact you take away their chance of speaking out on their own.
  3. Stay with them whenever and wherever they need you and provide adequate emotional support to them.
  4. There are number of therapies which are complimentary with Reiki in this condition,
    1. Martial-arts therapy : Use of Vocal chord is enhanced when someone practices skills of Martial arts.
    2. Auto-suggestion therapy : Type of meditation, where one is taught to give commands/ directions to himself.
    3. Homoeopathic medicine
    4. Animal assistant therapy : keeping parrots and encouraging your child to repeat its word can also be helpful.
  5. Try to find alternate words for words that are difficult enough to pronounce. For example, if someone has concerns for spelling letter “X” in word Box, try using word Carton and demonstrate its size/shape.

Following article is a good source of information for health care providers and care givers of people with stammering and great treatment options are also described in this article, but finally, i would like to request everyone concerned that Stammering is an disorder and NOT just an emotional outburst .What actually should be done by us is Practice/Improvise our listening skills, because the person who stammers also has a heart which beats and a mind which thinks. They too have something to speak and that is what needs to be listened & understood.

  • Acupressure is the most ancient and simplest of various oriental therapies such as acupuncture, shiatsu, zone therapy and reflexology which are prevalent today.
  • Each of these therapies strives to produce healing effects on the internal organs of the body through well defined points on the body surface.
  • Long term use of this therapy can be beneficial in chronic diseases also. Though acute results can be obtained in aches and pains.
  • Though easy and simple it is an effective treatment.
  • Anybody can take this treatment by himself in the privacy of his own home.
  • It is completely free from any side effects.


  • Health can be maintained easily by taking a regular treatment on the particular acupressure points every day.
  • A short acupressure session in the morning helps to maintain the balance of the energies flowing in the body.
  • Acupressure helps to increase vitality and strength. A regular application of pressure on acupressure points TSU-SAN-LI & YANG-LING-CHUAN gives strength to the muscles of the legs.
  • The heart and respiratory system work with increased efficiency by pressing the points NEI-KUAN.


  • When any organ of the body is diseased the points corresponding to that organ become tender and morbidly sensitive.
  • If some points hurts on pressing it can be said that there is something wrong with the organ connected with that point.
  • In acupressure even in the initial stage of the disease the diagnosis of the disease is possible with the help of painful points.
  • It also helps to diagnose a disease which is likely to occur in near future.
  • Though it is true that early and differential diagnosis of a disease is possible with the help of acupressure, the patient is advised not to attempt to diagnose his disease on his own. The work of diagnosis should be left to an experienced physician.


  • The principle of acupressure is “TREAT THE PATIENT AND NOT THE DISEASE ALONE”.
  • Diseases cure by acupressure
    • Constipation
    • Acidity
    • Thyroid disturbances
    • All sorts of aches and pains
    • Stress and its related disorder/ psychosomatic disorder
