Questions and Answers

Do I have vocal nodules? Is there a way I can get by vocal chords healthy again?

I've had a sore throat for two months and I cannot sing a song without my voice breaking and being hoarse. I've changed the way I sing by learning breathing exercises, drinking water and getting rest. Why can't I sing the way I used to anymore? Are my vocal chords gone?

Without an examination there is no way to tell if you have vocal nodules or not. If you have had a sore throat for two months it is probably best to see a physician as the sore throat could be a symptom of an underlying problem. When you see your physician they can answer any further questions as to the seriousness or recovery period required for your individual situation.

RE: Damage from Throat Infection?

Hello, I recently had issues with my throat and was told by a Dr. there was a throat infection to which he put me on antibiotics for 7 days. After finishing antibiotics, the voice came back about 75%, but there's still a lot of strain or hoarseness where I'm not able to sound out any 'low frequencies' or sing high notes without sounding breathy & breaking up. Is it possible that these infections may leave permanent damage? and is it a reversible damage? How long does it take to fully clear in order for me to sing as I had before (with full voice /strength) as I really love to sing, and I am severely discouraged for having lost my song voice.

Do you have any remedies for vegans cause I'm vegan?

I'm vegan and I need remedies for vegan

We care about lives: thank you for being vegan! In the article, all of the remedies but one are vegan-friendly. Additionally, you can prepare licorice tea. You can find our simple licorice tea recipe in our article on boosting one's immune system. Besides that, the best remedy is not using the voice for some time. Avoid speaking at all, unless it is absolutely necessary, and allow the cords to heal (do not forget to hydrate yourself constantly with warm water). Focus on tofu, peas, or soy in your diet to get more protein. All of the food should be taken hours before singing or after singing, while warm water should be always with you.

Damaged vocal cord from practicing singing?

I have a national concert (a series of shows) in less than a weeks time. I have been practicing hard for the same suddenly as the day is approaching my voice is sounding more and more strained and even flat at times. I cannot sing in the scale I started with and with even an hour of singing my voice starts to feel sore and tends to break. There is no vibrato at all. I have tried gurgling with salt water and also tried taking steam. . What can I do to keep my voice in place for the show next week?

How can I reduce vocal inflammation and create a maintenance program for my vocal chords and reduce inflammation in my liver?

I am HIV positive, a teacher and a singer in a band. I use my voice a great deal. I usually perform two hour set, as a lead singer with a broad range, I get a good work out vocally. I often take Ibuprofen 2-3 hours before the show and then after the show to make sure than there is reduced inflammation. I adhere to this regime vigorously. It has worked for a long time. Recently my last blood test came back showing enzymes at an elevated rate which could be a precursor to Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver syndrome. This is caused by irritation to the liver from NSAIDs and my HIV meds. I cannot quit taking my HIV meds, but I am looking for alternative solutions to the vocal inflammation / maintenance and I am also looking for medications that can reduce inflammation in my liver to help reverse this situation should it prove to be true. I am going in for an ultrasound to confirm the Fatty Liver. Whatever suggestions you could make would be of great help?

Does sparkling water help or hurt my damaged vocal cords?

I have coughed for 20 years because of damaged vocal cords, have been to many Dr.'s. I've been on a very healthy regime for years, no alcohol, caffeine, lots of water, exercise, etc. I am going to go away soon for a complete vocal rest. But I see in this article that I should avoid sodas, so is that because of the chemicals, or the carbonation? I find that sparkling water soothes my cords and cough faster than regular water, so don't want to give it up.
