Suffering from voice loss and are in need of a viable solution to get it back? We are here to help!

Are you suffering from abnormal changes in your voice like hoarseness, raspiness or even symptoms of voice loss? You may think that you're fighting with a cold or flu, or perhaps you may think that it’s due to the fact that you sang your heart out at a concert or cheered too loudly for your favorite player at a football ground. And (hypothetically speaking), due to those actions, you are now paying the price with a sore throat or, even worse, laryngitis - a type of inflammation in your voice box that makes your voice scratchy or hoarse.

Laryngitis can be short-term or chronic and most often it does not last more than a couple of weeks. A viral or bacterial infection or vocal strain can cause temporary laryngitis.

Laryngitis (which is quite common during cold and flu season) is caused when the voice box becomes inflamed. In order to produce a  clear-sounding voice, the vocal folds have to be able to rub up against each other in order to vibrate accordingly. However, if inflammation gets into that lining, it will prevent those vocal folds from vibrating properly, and thus the production of a clear, healthy voice will become compromised.

How to prevent voice problems?

If you want to prevent voice problems and are looking for ways to get your voice back asap, here are some beneficial tips for you. 

- Stay Hydrated 

Drink plenty of water. At least 6-8 glasses a day is recommended. Stop the consumption of unhealthy drinks (like alcohols or caffeine) that can cause your body to lose water and make your vocal folds and larynx become dry. 

- Maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.

Don't smoke and avoid second-hand smoke. It irritates your vocal folds. Also, cancer of the vocal folds has been detected in people who smoke regularly. Don't consume spicy foods. Spicy foods can cause stomach acid to move into the throat and or esophagus, causing heartburn or GERD. Include plenty of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables in your diet that contains vitamins A, E, and C. These vitamins help to maintain the mucous membranes which, in turn, help to keep the throat (and related parts of the vocal anatomy) healthy.

- Visit an alternative voice specialist.

If the hoarseness remains persistent for more than a couple of weeks and, moreover, you begin experiencing chronic problems with your throat and voice, it's necessary that you visit a qualified alternative health specialist. These specialists will closely analyze your disturbed vocal anatomy, using specific alternative & natural methods, which will greatly aid to your voice/vocal recovery. 

Once you’ve been examined by the above/described specialist, they’ll have a better idea if your laryngitis is caused by an ear, nose or throat problem, or if, (as an additional measure) you may need to embark on a herbal (as well as some homeopathic) treatment. These kinds of therapists use a specific approach to help you find relief from symptoms; and, most importantly, at the end of the treatment,  acquire the best possible (and, nonetheless) desirable voice. 

Therefore if you are seriously committed to healing and fully recovering your voice, make an appointment with an alternative health specialist who solely specializes in non-surgical voice repair.

Treatment for Muscle Tension Dysphonia - What you need to know:

Muscle tension dysphonia is a term used to define a negative change in the sound of one’s voice due to the muscle strain in the neck. Hoarseness or discomfort due to excessive muscle tension in and around the voice box can be telling signs of the beginning stages of this nasty voice disorder. This form of muscle tension prevents the sufferer from using their natural voice. Muscle tension dysphonia can easily develop during laryngitis and can remain even after the swelling of the vocal cords (due to laryngitis and other similar illnesses) has subsided. It can also be caused by stress, therefore causing a co-occurring diagnosis. The dysphonia may occur on its own, known as primary MTD - or as a result of other underlying disorders, known as secondary MTD.

What are the symptoms of this form of dysphonia?

Muscle tension dysphonia generally causes the voice to sound rough, hoarse, raspy, weak, breathy, airy, squeezed, tight or tense. Some of the other symptoms include:

  • A weak or airy voice
  • Sudden breaks or fading of the voice 
  • A neck that is tender or sore to the touch 
  • Loss of vocal range when singing 
  • Feeling the need to clear the throat often 
  • The feeling of a lump in the throat

How do we treat muscle tension dysphonia?

Behavioral treatment in the form of an alternative form of voice therapy is generally advised as the best treatment for muscle tension dysphonia. This specific form of therapy (known as the “Vocal Science™ Method”) is recommended for both forms of MTD - primary or secondary in nature.

Using a specialized form of voice restoration,  combined with the application of natural herbs and remedies applied onto the vocal box, this is the best way of dealing with this form of dysphonia, as well as with many other voice disorder symptoms. 

This unique approach to voice mechanics is achieved by lifting the sufferer’s voice off of their vocal box (using specially-designed forms of speech and, if needed, singing exercises) and restructuring it to their facial muscles; and then putting those facial muscles to work in full conjunction and coordination with their abdominal muscles.

The above actions will naturally amplify the human voice, allowing the true voice to be heard without compromise. It will also minimize the use of the sufferer’s throat, larynx and vocal cords – therefore it will definitely eliminate the harmful use (pain and strain) of the vocal anatomy altogether.

Vocal Science™ - Wondering who we are & what we do…?

- We are NOT doctors… We, in fact, are practicing alternative and holistic methods applicable to nearly all human health problems, while closely specializing in the Non-Surgical Voice Repair field.

- We are Natural Practitioners with holistic approach to voice /vocal mechanics; and while working on the mechanics of the voice we are also employing natural herbal and some mild homeopathic remedies to heal the actual vocal anatomy and, in particular, the disturbed flora of the throat.

- Once the voice (given the proper voice application achieved via specially designed - by me -  voice exercises) is lifted off of the vocal box and structured and placed in an alternative set of muscles (facial cavities), those remedies will work that much more efficiently and the whole process will help the voice disorder sufferer to not only regain their voice, but also achieve the best possible health and nevertheless quality of their newly-found voice. -

For example: 

How do we treat voice problems due to acid reflux? - one of the most common labels doctors tag onto voice disorder sufferers:

For the above-described specific situation, my theory is such that the sufferer acquires acid reflux condition only because their voice is positioned in the lower part of their vocal anatomy; and thus makes it very easy for gastric acid to burn the vocal cords.
Therefore, ultimately the acid reflux problem is, no doubt, mainly induced by faulty application of one’s vocal mechanics.
Therefore, under my care, when one’s voice gets lifted (via specially-designed speech exercises) off of the vocal box & off of the vocal cords, the pressure of the sound will be removed from the vocal anatomy; & then the application of the herbal and some homeopathic remedies will become extremely effective.
During the above process, the flora on the bottom of the throat will then heal; and the application of the sufferers voice will be entirely changed - which will allow them to comply with the standards of professional speaking and/or singing. The sound of their voice will become restructured into their facial cavities (facial muscles) which will play the role of the natural amplifier (resonator).
 - By osmosis, the sufferer’s annunciation and pronunciation will become much clearer and much more announced and pronounced. -

Those facial muscles will begin to work in full conjunction and coordination with the abdominal muscles; thus minimizing and practically eliminating the harmful use of their throat, larynx and vocal cords.
Via the proper use of the lower abdomen, the person in question will acquire the needed hight for the sound; and, via the proper use of their upper diaphragm (their rib cage), they will acquire the needed width of the sound (the body of the sound) - which will allow them to achieve increased vocal projection & increased range, volume and overall control of their speaking and/or singing voice.
The above information is the Vocal Science™ Method & Technique, in a nutshell.

To conclude: 
Nonetheless, we have great and unprecedented success in this field and it is proven to be one and only in this world which makes sense and produces guaranteed authentic &; desirable results.

Vocal Science: The Forensic Science…

We are practicing alternative internal medicine while advocating the assurance of the best speaking/singing voice & nevertheless, non-surgical voice repair.

We   Got   This!!

Firstly, you, my reader, may wonder why we call Vocal Science the forensic science? We do so because we are paying a great attention to the minutest details while working on the human voice (speaking or singing - damaged or not). With our specially-designed speech and singing exercises, we build a, so to speak, “hurricane-proof” foundation for the future “house” to “stand on” and to be “built upon”…  Evidently, broken or not and first of all the speaking voice (before the singing voice, if required to be worked on) has to be put in balance along with the person’s physical body, mind and nevertheless the motor skills.

To achieve the desirable result while building the proper voice application (ultimate voice/vocal technique), especially with respect to the voice restoration, those aforementioned components have to be able to work in full synchronicity between each other.  While facial muscles will also work in full conjunction and coordination with one’s abdominal muscles, the excessive and harmful use of the vocal anatomy will be minimized exponentially.

Vocal Science™ is an intellectual and intelligent method of visualization.

In order to restore one’s mechanics (speaking and/or singing), the person has to be able to adapt a “modality" of completely new behaviour. The latter falls into the neural linguistic programming (N.L.P), which is all about the “installation” of the new modality of one’s behaviour.

The Vocal Science™ Method is built on the laws of physics and geometry.

Its technique suggests that the sound is a physical material body and it travels as such; i.e., in circular direction and relatively, prospectively and respectively to the person’s height, width and central line of their body (ultimately, the parameters of the central line would be the location of their nose and belly button).

In order to achieve the above, the person’s posture has to be ultimate, while also taking for consideration that the sound is a physical material body and it will travel in the same way as if they would pitch the ball, swim to the aimed destination and/or jump a triple axel or quad on ice. 

In fact, in order for the figure skater to achieve the above-mentioned jumps, they will have to take off of the ice (not with the ice, which sometimes happens), in order to achieve the needed height for the triple or quad; and then maintain the complete centre while taking off and landing those jumps. 

On the premise of the above, the former and the latter explain the holistic approach to voice mechanics. 

Taking the above fact for consideration, my first priority is to assess the person as a wholeBelieve it or not, any person’s voice is the least of my concern…, because, if that person is completely intact (in balance and fitness between mind, body and motor skills), our success will be inevitable whereas, no doubt, the human voice will work to its absolute maximum capacity possible. In majority of cases, the voice damage occurs specifically because of the lack of understanding of how the human body (and voice, for that matter) are designed to work. 

People have very bad postures; they are not familiar with the parameters of their body; they have no idea how to project their voice to be heard while, concurrently, not to ruin their vocal anatomy, or at least avoid the pain and strain. 

Now, since our society is completely non-physical, it is becoming exponentially worse. It is extremely hard to attend to one’s voice when that person is completely out of balance on every conceivable level… The humans are now way too busy sitting at their computers and “smart” phones checking and conversing on Facebook & other destructive  social media platforms… Also, to elaborate further, I’ve just heard on the radio that the average size of a women’s dress use to be considered size 10 to12. Today, via thorough research, it was detected that the dress size moved up to size 16 and even 18…!!

My question is:  What is going to happen in the next few years?

Will we be shooting for size 24 then? I certainly hope not!

All that is caused by the wrong diet and by the lack of physical activities - Too much sitting while searching the internet… I am sorry to say, but in my “books”, it is extremely pathetic!! How do we expect the voice to work in the fullest capacity possible when all of the other organs in one’s physical body are completely out of sorts??

So this is my plea to you, my reader:

  • Put your computer mouse away and go for a walk.
  • Watch the food which you put in your mouth
  • Go for a walk at every available moment
  • Stop your bad habits (smoking, drinking, drugs, etc..)
  • Watch your voice while speaking and singing - Don’t scream and force your voice under any circumstances
  • And lastly, do not EVER attempt any singing if you are sick with a cold or have a virus of any sort

Vocal Science™ Method.

Our credo: Save and protect your voice for years to come and live your life with the best and, most importantly, heathy voice!

You got this!!
