We have just received a client suffering from the Spasmodic Dysphonia voice disorder. She came to us (just 4 days ago) from another side of the planet - New Zealand! We’ve learned that it took her over 22 hours to fly to us - to Toronto, Canada.
To date, Tanya, under my thorough guidance, completed 20 hours of a very intense voice instruction coupled with a natural herbal treatment. In my estimate, our client’s Spasmodic Dysphonia disorder originally was determined to be between stage 1 and even possibly 2.
In my previous blog about the same voice matter, I specified that in “my books”, this very nasty voice disorder possesses 4 stages, whereas the stage 3 and 4 could be somewhat treatable, but usually never curable (at least to my knowledge and experience).
Tanya and I are working very hard, executing very detailed instructions (bringing it almost to forensic science)… The process involves a lot of repetition of the new sounds’ formation. First and foremost, we have to knock down all the bad habits and establish new healthy ones. It involves the establishment of certain positions of the mouth, lips and tongue, coupled with the proper posture of the body. The Vocal Science™ method is a unique intellectual and intelligent method of visualization.
I have been using a developed-by-me diagram of the physical sound, which reflects its movement and direction. For greater clarity, I’m also using laser light, showing exactly how the physical sound travels in a circular direction, relatively, prospectively and respectively to the person’s height, weight (body of the sound) and central line of one’s body parameters (nose and bellybutton).
Such unique instruction is coupled with certain body movements to use a body language to put the person in a prime position, utilizing their (so to speak) “instrument”, which allows them to use their intellectual abilities in integration and synergy with motor skills - and thus achieve the aimed destination of the sound, now being harboured in a completely different set of muscles (facial cavities, working in full conjunction and coordination with the abdominal muscles). The latter allows the sufferer’s voice to move freely away from the lower throat position, while concurrently reducing the harmful pressure from their whole vocal anatomy in general.
I could compare Tanya’s case with patients who I attend to in the past and who were recovering from different stages of stroke. Those patients did not have spasms, but their whole speech pattern (almost like Tanya’s) was basically erased in its entirety. So I had to teach them (as well as Tanya) to learn how to speak again with a completely new application of their voice, using a completely new modality of completely new behaviour. The latter (in many aspects of it) falls into the same fashion as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Once such an endeavour described above is completed, the new horizons inevitably will be reached.
My book “Vocal Science - Flight to the Universe” teaches how to “fly” anyone’s voice/spirit straight to the Universe - where the sky is, indeed, the limit!
Stay tuned to hear more about Tanya’s progress for the next 30 hours yet to come! We are hoping to produce before-and-after instruction videos and bring it for your viewing. Tanya said that she is, and will be, open for your emails with any relevant questions to be sent directly to her. Meanwhile, she is enjoying the process while both of us, working hard, however smart, on the final goal to achieve the complete recovery of Tanya’s voice.

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
- 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
Overview of my recent trip to London, UK. Wenke L.G. – a sufferer of the vocal cord papillomavirus. Wenke L.G. from Birmingham, Solihull UK , met me in my hotel for a two and a half-hour introductory/exploratory session. Below is her feedback after the session was rendered and she and I proceeded to Camden Lock Market for an Afternoon Tea treat: “My voice feels a bit ‘Tired’ but a few people have said it sounds better, so I’m assuming the tired feeling just comes from, obviously, at this stage, having to work the mouth muscles harder to ‘smile and bite’; but it produces a clearer voice. So all good.” Wenke (Left) - Diana (Right) Stay tuned, as Wenke told us that she wants to send us more in-depth feedback via the next e-mail. We will bring it to your attention when it reaches us. ____________ Charlotte W – a sufferer of voice loss due to administered (unrelated) surgery Performance.
