If you feel any changes in your voice whatsoever, please don’t ignore it! See a natural health/voice specialist as soon as possible! Don’t convince yourself that everything is fine and almost as good as before. You are experiencing some changes and (let me tell you) there is definitely no change without change.
Something had happened!
Maybe you had a virus, strep throat or just a simple flue? After recovering from any of the above, suddenly, you have discovered that your voice, per say, had not recovered.
You are still speaking raspy and your voice still sounds hoarse. You, meanwhile, continuously trying to justify your voice condition by saying, “Oh. I’m just having a cold, or I just had a cold and my voice is still recovering”.
So, some time passes and your voice is still scratchy and your throat is still sore. You are experiencing difficulties with communication and trying more so to write then to speak.. (Thank God we all have computers and “smartphones” now)
Eventually, your family doctor is referring you to the ENT specialist…? And then, you suddenly find out that one of your vocal cords is… paralyzed..?
“WOW! How could that be???” you ask yourself and your doctors.
Unfortunately, it happens more and more often then ever before.
“What should I do now?”
Now you have to embrace the fact of the matter and act accordingly.
The majority of medical professionals offer all kinds of surgeries and also offer implants, injections & what have you.
The alternative solution is such that you will have to learn a whole new application of the voice and learn to speak (or sing for that matter, which is much harder and could be completely impossible) from the different set of muscles (your facial cavities) and coordinate those facial muscles with your abdominal muscles, so that your voice would be supported for its lift off of the vocal box and off of the vocal cords.
Special speech exercises (in my practice, used with special body movements) will allow the voice to be channeled and projected to its aimed destination.
All of the above will be happening upon the method of visualization; and thus, upon design.
Your paralyzed vocal cord may begin to move a little, but that is still not the main objective.
The focus is to make you speak utilizing different sets of muscles other then the vocal cords per say; and make you sound as close to your original voice as possible.
The sooner you come to terms with the fact that you do have a voice issue, the better chances you will have to get a full (or close to a full) recovery of your voice, but, unfortunately, not necessarily your vocal paralysis… which is (in the above case) luckily just a “labeling” diagnosis.

- My close observations and beliefs. - For at least a decade, about 90 percent of people have been coming through our doors to conquer not only a voice repair but, as experience shows, first and foremost, to acquire a new and improved lifestyle… Our Toronto prominent newspaper, The Toronto Star , once said - “ It is not for the faint of heart ”. And I would add that it is also not for people who will be expecting change without change, so to speak. If those who are seeking help are not willing to open up and tell us their true story, then it would be very difficult to offer them the lifestyle modification - and thus the successful results of their voice problems and issues. I’ve said it numerous times that the human voice is an expression of the state of one’s being and the identification of who that person really is… The voice on its own is a “ tool” for communication and, needless to say, that if that very “tool” is broken, the communication also s
Case Study: This story is about Vera D of Barrie Ontario, whose vocal cords got damaged during her open heart surgery… Vera came to us in the year 2015 when she hardly could speak, and mostly was whispering. She told us her story whereas before coming for our non-surgical voice repair services, she had undergone open-heart surgery, after the completion of which, she fell in a life-and-death coma. It took over 45 minutes to revive her. Thank God, luckily for her, she survived the ordeal. But when she woke up, she discovered that she had no voice to speak. It clearly was damaged due to intubation and, perhaps, some other internal surgical procedures related to the main cause. She was told that she would never regain her normal speaking voice ever again. She underwent some very painful and useless tests that revealed that her vocal cord damage was permanent. On this note, she was offered not one, but two vocal operations with absolutely no guarantee that her voice will ever return b
Vocal Science™ Separated, divorced, feeling lonely...? This Is A Riddle. Feel like it is hard to speak and to even swallow? Feels like you have a lump in your throat? We can help, and not only with your voice being strangled but also with the stuffed-up emotions you have been experiencing due to the above! We promise that we will take care of you, holistically speaking… Rest assured, help is on the way and we are more than happy to guarantee you that! For quite a few years now, I have been working with a lot of middle-aged women primarily age 45 to 65; the majority of whom were separated or outright divorced from their spouses… The most affected (vocally and otherwise) were those women who did not expect it at all… Their spouses made it financially (not without their wives’ help). And due to that, they had acquired the power of wealth and some “mostly-fake” status. On that premise, shortly after, they left their wives and children to stat a newly-found life with a new, younger femal
