What does a chorister take to clear the voice after eating fried food?

Ad

Fried food is usually oily and it causes the vocal cords to feel rather sticky or have a sensation similar to having phlegm or mucus in it. It is best not to drink cold beverages right after eating, because low temperature causes the oil to solidify, therefore making it more difficult for the oil to leave your larynx. Hot beverages will aid in washing away these oils from your throat. The best comparison here is when you refrigerate a dish with beef to preserve it. Just a few minutes in the fridge and you will automatically see fat solidifying on top of the dish. That's how fat usually reacts with anything cold. Therefore, if you know for sure that you have eaten oily food, make sure you drink hot beverages immediately right after.

What drug can I use to get my voice clear?

This depends. If you have allergies, you can use anti-histamine to help clear your voice. When you have cough, you can either take cough medicine or do it the old fashion way and drink a cup or two of boiled ginger or lemon juice in water with no ice. This helps clear the passageways of any mucus.But if you just wish to get a clearer voice, just practice and drink boiled ginger juice as it soothes the vocal chords as well. You do not really need any drugs to help get a clearer voice.

Does eucalyptus oil clear a cracked voice?

Yes, it has been recorded as a way to clear a cracked voice but ensure that you use the recommended amount on your bottle for not all of these oils are made from the same company or brand meaning the dosage will change up for each brand so read carefully and take as instructed.

No, it is recommended that you not take anything that contains menthol or eucalyptus in it as an ingredient for it can cause your voice to sound deeper. I doubt that a singer would want to deepen their voice from where it is at this time of your singing expedition so stay away from these types of ingredients.

How to fully clear the passageway leading to my nose and mouth?

I've tried multiple times to clearly remove anything in the way of my throat and nose to give it my best in singing but even though my nose and throat is clear of mucus, and I have drank water a lot, there seems to be some sort of extra mucus up there in my nose but when I blow my nose again, nothing comes out. it's there I know because when I make squeaky noises and block my nose passageway I can feel it there. How do I get rid of the extra layer of mucus up my nose? It is ruining my vocals! HELP!

Was this helpful? Yes | No

The best thing I can recommend would be to buy an over the counter sterile saline nasal spray. It will just help clear it all up. You should not need any of the kinds with medicine in them, the normal one will work fine.
