Can a lot of throwing up damage the larynx?

Ad

Yes, because the vomit will be reversing back up your throat which not only hurts your throat but can also cause your throat to be sore. This will also cause tears in your throat depending on how many times you throw up which can affect your singing voice.

How can I make a soft singing voice, my voice seems to be broken?

My voice dropped to something like a deep voice when I severely suffered with cough, now it is hard to sing perfectly....Can please help me

A cough is an involuntary reflex or voluntary action of the body to rid foreign object or mucus from the upper airway passages and from the lungs. When you severely suffered from cough, the excessive mucus secretions on your throat plus your irritated vocal cords makes your voice to drop and makes you difficult to sing high notes. To properly help you sing perfectly, you need to completely rest your voice for 4 to 5 days after you severely suffered from cough. The rationale behind it is that when you severely suffered from cough, your vocal cords were greatly irritated because of your frequent and forceful coughing making your voice to drop and hoarse. After you overcome your severe coughing, your vocal cords are still sore and it needs additional time to properly heal itself naturally. Numerous studies showed that resting a voice for several days can effectively heal swollen vocal cords restoring the soft singing voice of a person. I also suggest to sip a warm cup of ginger tea with a tablespoon of honey twice a day to enhance the natural healing of your swollen vocal cords and to effectively clears excessive mucus secretions on your throat. In general, you can make your voice soft and properly sing high notes again if you completely rest your voice for several days and drink a warm cup of ginger tea with honey everyday after you severely suffered from cough to allow the complete healing of your swollen vocal cords and to properly liquefy and decrease the excessive mucus secretions on your throat.

When it comes to your voice there ultimately is no certain way to have your voice become deeper than to have surgery on you voice box and vocal chords. Your voice that you have is the correct voice for your body and as you grow older your voice will change over time.

I understand you are wanting to deepen your voice but this type of thing is not possible through voice exercises or any drink that you can make in order to help in this matter.

There are some ways to aid you to have a stronger voice but not any ways for you to develop a deep voice like Barry White:

I'm trying to understand why my voice changes while I sing?

I am in two bands and have just gotten back into it after a couple years off. I've noticed that my voice has changed. Chocolate seems to give it a nice roughness I never had before. Is it safe to use the chocolate that way? Sometimes I'd like a gritty sound.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

I have conducted some research on chocolates effect on your voice and I have seen that it in fact can cause a problem with your voice changing its tone when singing after eating chocolate.

Chocolate is a dairy which like other dairy items will produce mucus in your throat which is giving you that raspy sound when singing just as you have stated above in your question.

Chocolate or dairy will clog up your throat causing your voice to in fact sound a bit off for it is clogging up your vocal chords giving you that raspy voice. If you continue to use chocolate you will simply build up more mucus in your throat but if you stop you will lose the raspy sound in your voice giving you your old clear voice once again.

If you want to continue having this raspy sound then you can simply continue to take chocolate in order to keep your voice at this tone that you are comfortable with at this time.

More questions and answers

I have a case of acid reflux/hiatus hernia?

It has made my voice very raspy and limited in range.

Acid reflux does cause the voice to be rather raspy, especially when it happens to you quite often. You must make sure that you avoid eating very acidic food and also get medication from your doctor for an anti-acid drug. Normally, you will be asked to drink the anti-acid for a few days until you see that the situation gets better.

Acid reflux also happens a lot when you are stressed so it is highly important that when you sing, you also have enough rest and that you don't worry so much.

How do I get to hit/sustain high notes as usual without my voice breaking/squeaking?

I have been singing on high notes, able to sustain high notes for long but noticed I can no longer do that as usual. this came about when I sang on a higher than my normal key for over 40 minutes. I lost my voice the next day. I took some mints and lozenges to help because I had to sing again in about 2 days time. but this didn't help much. since that time I have noticed that I am unable to sustain/hit high notes. my voice squeaks/breaks. all this has been happening for a month now. what should I do to recover?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

This sounds like you have been overexerting your voice and you need some vocal rest and some lifestyle modification. This means you should have minimal use of your voice. No singing, shouting, or too much talking for about a week or until your throat feels better. Drink plenty of water to keep your body well-hydrated and to lubricate your throat and vocal cords. Use warm or room temperature water. Steer clear from too cold or hot beverages that can further worsen your throat conditions. You should also keep mentholated or herbal throat lozenges handy which can help relieve and soothe swollen vocal cords. Sleep and rest well so that your body and vocal cords can recharge itself. You will notice your vocal range and quality will be back in optimal condition once you are well-rested and healthy.
