Are you, by any chance, suffering from abnormal changes in your voice like for example; Hoarseness, raspiness or even a total voice loss? At first, 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 favourite player at a football game. And, if so, then, (hypothetically speaking), due to those actions, you are now paying the price with a sore throat or even, parhaps, laryngitis - a type of inflammation in your voice box that makes your voice scratchy or hoarse, which can also be a cause of a lost voice, God forbid!
Laryngitis can be short-term endeavour or become chronic. Most often (if it's not chronic), it does not last for longer than a couple of weeks.
Laryngitis (occurance of which is quite common during cold and flu season) is caused when the voice box becomes inflamed. In fact, if the inflammation gets into the vocal box lining, it will cause those vocal folds to stop 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 restored in a timely manner, here are some beneficial tips for you.
- Stay Hydrated
Drink plenty of water.
To drink 6-8 glasses a day is recommended.
Stop the consumption of unhealthy substances (like alcohol or caffeine). For instance, drinking and smoking can cause your body to lose water and thus can make your vocal folds and larynx become dry.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Don't smoke and avoid second-hand smoke. It will irritate your vocal folds.
Also, 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 you have symptoms of raspiness or hoarseness and they remain to be persistent for more than a few weeks and, moreover, you begin experiencing more problems with your throat and voice, then it's necessary for you to visit a qualified alternative health specialist. That type of specialist will closely analyze your disrupted vocal anatomy, and will use specific natural/alternative methods, which will greatly aid your voice/vocal recovery.
These kinds of therapists use a specific non-invasive approach to help you find relief from nasty symptoms of any voice disorder; and, most importantly, at the end of your treatment, nevertheless, they will help you to acquire the best quality of your desired voice.

Hi Everyone, Some of you are already familiar with the name of Aubrie Morris of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA who originally came to us in November 2019. She came to us with the diagnosis of Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD). Please read the beginning of Aubrie’s story by clicking the link below: https://www.vocalscience.com/aubrie-m-muscle-tension-dysphonia-survivor Her voice repair course and natural herbal treatment was supposed to be administered for 6 consecutive days in order for Aubrie to receive 30 hours of our revolutionary voice/vocal instruction by advocating by us our very own Vocal Science™ method. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish that course as Aubrie caught a cold and thus we were forced to cut our course short (24/26 hours). However, with the above said, her Muscle Tension Dysphonia disorder was almost gone by the time she left Canada. But, due to the pandemic, she was not able to see me until just recently. Due to that fact, waiting for almost a year and a h
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
“Just landed… I had a wonderful, encouraging time! I can not wait to come back. I will definitely be in contact soon!” - Aubrie M ___________________ Aubrie arrived to us last Friday, November the 1st from the USA. Prior to her arrival, we have been in communication with her for a few months, as she had to pay off her 30-hour course and treatment in increments. We had already been very impressed with Aubrie throughout the process, as she told us that she was working (simultaneously) two jobs - totalling over 70 hours a week to come to us to fix her muscle tension dysphonia disorder ; thus claim her life back - and, in our opinion, no doubt, more positive and better quality than before. Up until Aubrie had arrived to us, we had no idea that she was a young single mom with a young son. For the last three years, her dreams, however, had been completely shattered. Apparently, nobody in her native city, (Pittsburgh) could help Aubrie to rectify her vocal problem. let alone to re
