Praat kills all the big pitch jumps, keeping them all within half an octave, for instance a downward jump of 9 semitones is replaced with an upward jump of 3 semitones. The resulting pitch curve often lies several octaves below or above the original (or real) pitch contour, but that is what you have been asking for. (real speech often contains big jumps, so if you remove them from the pitch contour, the pitch contour will not be realistic any longer)

setting for example floor 150 Hz and ceiling 500 Hz as a start.
