WHAT CAUSES STUTTERING

The method is based on proven scientific research supported by incontestable experimental facts. Any form of stuttering is always triggered by one causean incorrect and unnatural use of the speech apparatus by stutterers as their learned response to  various factors or situations. In other words, by setting an impractical and physically impossible goal for their speech apparatus and attempting to complete this impossible task, stutterers end up with a STUPOR – a stoppage of the speech apparatus in useless attempts to force out their speech. Such inappropriate interaction of stutterers with their own speech apparatus triggers  STUPOR ( stuttering ).

ONSET OF STUTTERING

 Here are several scenarios of how stuttering/stupor develops in an individual. Please, note that stuttering is not a disease or a medical condition, but it is a learned habit developed through an unconscious hypnosis at a moment of maximum stress and fear. The suggested trance performed in such situation becomes imprinted in the mind/memory of the future stutterer  instantly and remains there for a long time, sometimes forever.

Scenario #1

собаки2A dog is barking at a young boy. The child is scared. All his muscles, including the ones responsible for speech production, become paralyzed. Such situation may trigger this child to develop a typical stupor as a result of his attempt to do the following two things at the same time: to focus on a subject of his fear (the dog) and, at the same time, to attempt calling for help or running away. However, a human cannot perform consciously all of these actions simultaneously. Now, let’s look at the parent’s common actions in response to such situation. Concerned about her child’s safety, the mother runs towards the boy with the expression of horror on her face. Such mother’s face expression adds to and supports the child’s belief that he is in real danger.  Next, the parent grabs her numb of fear child, shakes him (which is a strong kinesthetic impact!) to make sure that he is all right,  looks straight in his eyes (powerful visual impact), and produces something like this: “Don’t be quite, say something!!! What scared-balloon-boy-nmEaPR1are you trying to say? What? REPEAT IT, FASTER!!!” The last phrase may be repeated 10-15 times! The poor child is desperately trying to say something, but instead, he remains mute because he cannot take his eyes of his parent’s terrified face and the scary dog. After even a minute of this inability to respond, the parent then announces something like this: “Oh God! You have just begun to  stutter!” From this moment on, this kind of frustrated conversation between the child and his parent takes place more and more often and eventually turns into a “normal” way of their communication. The child soon learns this bad habit as a protective response to any situation when someone “important”  is looking at him or demanding something from him. He gradually masters the skill of such “safe” response after each repetition of such interaction with other “important” person. Next, the child’s parents start the task of taking him to various specialists increasing the child’s and the parents’ belief in incurability of what has come to be known now as the stuttering disease. Also, because majority of humans never challenge such authorities as doctors and specialists, but blindly except their diagnoses, the myth of established stuttering is considered as a proven fact in the society.

Scenario #2

images-13-e1331789912491A child’s growth and early development occurs in the presence of a stuttering person. a bad habit of repeating speech segments in the way that person does. All children in the world acquire their speaking skills by listening to and copying the speech of people around them: their sounds, tone, rhythm, and speech SEQUENCE. Unconscious learning of incorrect speaking occurs especially quickly, when a child has to communicate with and copy the speech patterns after such authorities as his parents or a friend.  He literally mirrors and copies in his brain all the pathological behaviors of the people that he focuses his attention on throughout the day.

Scenario #3

Stuttering may be developed in school. Most of the time, it occurs in the process of the acquiring of reading skills. A young child is expected to be able to read a certain number of words within a minute. images-5Such demand simply ignores the fact that each student’s brain development has individual characteristics. (Also, nobody can produce in one minute more than 60 words that consist of 5-7 sounds ! If you do not believe, try it yourself!). If a child does not meet the established standards for all fluent reading requirements, he becomes considered as not normal and may be retained because of such. The following thoughts constantly pop up in the child’s head: “I should say it faster! Like others! I cannot do this… I am not like them…” Placed under this kind of public pressure, such a student attempts to speak faster and faster and as a result, he begins to establish a stupor. One day, this kind of speech stoppage occurs during an important event accompanied by a great excitement. At this point, all three main reasons for stupor are present: 1) stress 2) external trigger 3) impossible ability to complete such a task. Occurrence of these three factors at the same moment inevitably leads to development of stuttering. Just as a student-freshman of medical school begins to self-study symptoms of diseases and finds them in himself, so does a child who diagnoses himself with a stuttering disease. The result is that development of a regular stupor becomes a bad habit at certain moments. Even after the stuttering student has grown up, and many tasks that used to be impossible to complete for him in his young childhood have become possible now, however, this growing child still continues to stupor at the same certain moment without attempts to re-think, re-assess, and change their self-appraisal. Those lucky few who do think about changing of their speech and mental behaviors have acknowledged that is possible to stop stuttering! However, the majority of people who stutter, carry their childhood fears and bad habits into their adult lives without any changes.

Scenario #4

Stuttering may occur at any age as a result of a psycho-trauma that has engulfed the person.

images-2After a psycho-trauma, not only just a young child, but even an adult from the risk group who has retained the possibility may suddenly begin to stutterer – he or she may “forget” how to speak correctly and begin to stupor regularly in certain speech situations.

Risk group may consist of:

* Gullible people with weak self-image, self-esteem, or unstable mind (like, e.g. young children);

* Those with undeveloped, underdeveloped, or disordered speech, such as a result of their weak conscious memory;

* People with abnormally rapid speech;

images* All former stutterers in the stage of remission;

* People with insufficient vocabulary;

* People with disordered attention span.

The mechanism of neurotic type of stuttering is simple and has a hypnotic nature. All magicians and hypnotists are aware of the main rule for attention and memory and use this rule during their shows. This rule states that a human can focus his attention on only one unit of information at one moment. Based on this rule, a magician performs the following trick on stage: selects a gullible person from the audience and makes him instantly loose his ability to speak. images-14This is how it’s done. The chosen participant is asked to look straight into the eyes of the showman and say his name at the same time. However, because his attention is locked on the eyes of the hypnotist (visual perception), the person cannot switch his attention to his auditory memory and as a result, becomes numb instantly. Humans cannot access their auditory perception while their attention is still locked on visual perception. This is the natural way, in which the human brain operates. Inability to speak scares the person, as one does not know what the magician has done to them and how this is even possible. The fear turns on the mechanism of enforcement of this stupor and remembering it by one’s conscious memory. In other words, the person begins to understand and believe that instant loss of the ability to speak is real; they become self-doubtful and afraid of not being able to begin speaking. The mechanism of “visually locked attention” turned on consciously (by a hypnotist on stage) or unconsciously  (in the stressful visual situation) only once could be enough for this person to get used to this condition and become a stutterer because of an extremely powerful human’s ability to remember things and life events that cause stress or excitement. The higher the level of excitement of the event, the greater memory of it gets stored in the memory. Also, frequently repeating events become remembered easier and remain in the memory for as long as a lifetime. An event of “visually locked attention” while being emotionally high gets stored in the memory and will appear every time in a similar situation. Any speech situation is one, that repeats frequently throughout the day. After the stage show demonstration, the hypnotized person remains normal and does not freak out because the hypnotist then lets him know that his attention focus is no longer locked. At the same time, when a hypnotizing “visual anchor” is a real object and the process of locked attention becomes uncontrollable, such situation may trigger an instant and stable lost of speech – “visual stupor”. Regular repetition of this situation may lead to the development of neurotic stuttering. Stutterers turn the mechanism of visual stupor on by themselves and instantly lose their ability to speak in various situations, such as: at the store, during presentation, in meetings, talking on the phone, ordering food at a restaurant, initiating conversation with a stranger, etc. It appears strange to even the stutterers themselves. They may be speaking normally till their eyes stumble on the hypnotizing object – the “X-factor”, which makes them suddenly forget what they were going to say and begin unsuccessfully forcing out speech sounds (which only worsens the visual stupor!). Lack of success scares and leaves them feeling helpless. All stutterers will always react to the X-factor with the same visual (tactile or some other) stupor until they realize that they are the ones who have created this visual stupor condition within their own body. It has become a bad habit.

 Scenario #5

Severe stuttering may develop as a result of participation in traditional speech therapy sessions. images-4The following speech therapist’s suggestions are extremely harmful: “You have a stuttering disease. Speak smoothly, speak at once – without breaks; prolong sounds; hit the rhythm while you speak; speak with chanting; focus on your breathing while speaking; maintain direct eye contact while speaking…” All such and other pathological orders significantly worsen stupor and lead to progression of a speech disorder.
