Paralyzed Vocal Cord Due to Intubation and Other Causes… Could it be treated and could the voice be restored other then Non-Surgically?
The fact is that majority of the hospitals here in Canada and in the United States are the teaching hospitals. What that means is that these kind of procedures are not necessarily conducted by the appointed specialist(s), but are being performed by medical interns or even by medical faculty University students. Those young doctors to be are obviously still learning and do not have experience how to insert those tubes correctly. Thus, the occurred mistakes, which could cause the patient a severe damage of their vocal box, could be crucial to one’s life.
So the patient who went in to the operating room with a perfectly good voice, woke up a few hours later and discovered that their once precious and absolutely normal sounding voice, was not performing the regular way as before the surgery. Some of the patients, though, were assured and reassured by their doctors that it is a natural consequence of their surgery and the voice will get restored on its own…?
Unfortunately, that is never the case. In most cases, the vocal cord(s) is damaged and, worst of all, paralyzed. So the patient’s speech becomes very raspy and hoarse, heavy and strained and it is sometimes very difficult to understand what that person is trying to say. Understandably, those patients are extremely upset and frustrated and some are severely depressed and even feel suicidal. Is there a cure? From the medical point of view, there is not.
Could it be treated in such a way that this type of patients will speak more clear and more pronounced, will be more understood and feel that their throat and neck are released from the pressure of the sound, and thus they will feel more at ease and feel much lighter and brighter? Absolutely!!!
From where I sit, with special speech exercises, coupled with the certain body movements, I would be able to lift their voice off of the vocal cords and restructure it in a different set of muscles (facial muscles), which will begin to work in full conjunction and coordination with the abdominal muscles and thus, the use of the throat, larynx and vocal cords will be minimized and practically eliminated. Also, via same, but more in depth exercises, in the less severe cases, I would be able to induce, if not the full movement of the vocal cord, but at least a partial movement of one. Moreover, the natural herbs and some homeopathic remedies will be administered onto the patients’ vocal box to lubricate, heal and strengthen it.
Needless to say, the impurities like mucus and gastric acids will be eliminated from one’s vocal anatomy. As far as I am concerned (and so are over 20,000 clients I have attended to), it is a Genius Approach that Definitely Does Work!
I am grateful to God everyday for the gift of healing I received from the above.
