With unknown reasons for the cause of stuttering, there is a theory that claims the connection between food allergies and stuttering. According to this notion, allergy to certain foods causes activation of the sympathetic nervous system rather than the para-sympathetic nervous system. As a result, the following is an increase in the level of anxiety in stuttering which stimulates and worsens stuttering.
There is no conclusive evidence showing that some foods worsen or aggravate this condition in a person when he is already a stutterer. But there have been cases where sufferers have experienced a significant improvement in their condition by removing certain elements from their diet. Many people are unaware of the connection between stuttering and food. It cannot be assumed that this link exists in all stutterers, but there is a possibility that some sufferers may experience this problem because of their diet. It is advisable to consult a gastroenterologist to make sure that their food intake is not a possible reason for their stuttering.
The most common food allergy prevalent in stuttering is gluten which has aggravated stuttering. Gluten is a substance present in wheat and therefore it is present in most varieties of bread. Stuttering gluten consumption worsens his stutter, sometimes aggravating it to the point that stuttering is not even able to enter a complete sentence. Slurring and stuttering become extremely bad with gluten intake. Once the stutter stopped taking gluten in any form, the stutter returned to its normal level. But this aversion to gluten could also be due to some other larger ailments such as celiac and should be immediately checked with a doctor.
In addition, dopamine-rich foods cause extreme stuttering and should therefore be avoided. One of these dopamine-rich elements is caffeine and this together with sugary foods should not be included in the diet of patients. Some people develop a temporary stutter due to their allergy to certain food varieties; Peanut butter allergy causes stuttering in some people. These people can be avoided by keeping away from allergic foods. The same goes for stutterers who also suffer from food allergies, but since they already stutter in their speeches, it is best to be cautious and stay away from these elements.
