What should I eat to stop stammering?
Stammering or stuttering is a type of speech impairment where sounds or syllables are repeated involuntarily or there are unintended gaps in between words when the person is trying to speak.

Gut Bacteria and Stuttering: A Potentially New Dimension in Stuttering Treatment – There is no direct evidence that supports the claim that diet impacts stuttering. However, we have to consider that stuttering is a multifactorial disorder. A number of neurotransmitters (chemicals) in the brain impact stuttering including dopamine.
A study on the impact of medications that directly affect the dopaminergic and serotonergic mechanisms shows that medication, which downregulates the release of dopamine may help reduce stuttering. This shows that dopamine is one of the key factors that influence childhood-onset fluency disorders like stuttering.
Groundbreaking research by Dinan, Butler and Cryan on gut bacteria highlights their ability to influence the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Psychobiotics or the study of micro-organisms with the ability to influence behavior may pave a new path for the treatment of several disorders including stuttering.
It is indeed possible to increase or decrease the levels of “good” gut bacteria by controlling the food one consumes. Who knows – following a particular diet to increase the population of helpful bacteria and reduce the secretion of dopamine in the brain may soon be one way to control one’s stuttering.
However, at this moment, the research is still at a nascent phase, and taking control over stuttering via dietary modifications is still a hypothesis, albeit, a highly realistic one.
