Vocal cords polyps are non-cancerous growth of the tissue that appear mostly on one side of the vocal cords. They are mostly caused by vocal abuse (frequent screaming, yelling or singing), throat infections, foods and irritants. Reversing or dissolving the growth of these vocal cord polyps can be effectively done if the polyps are beginning to form through complete voice rest, avoiding irritants such as cigarette smoke, avoiding carbonated/caffeinated drinks and avoiding foods that may irritate the vocal cords. There are also foods that effectively reduce the size of vocal cord polyps like the following:

There are a number of natural or herbal vitamins that you can take for reducing the severity of vocal cord polyps. For one, glutathione which is coined as a master or powerful antioxidant has been found to be an effective remedy for vocal cord polyps. This can shrink the polyps by an astounding 90% success rate while improving and expanding the vocal quality and range of patients. Glutathione can be administered orally or through supplements, intravenously, or transdermal creams. You can also try a mix of warm herbal teas such as cinnamon, licorice, ginger, or peppermint. Vitamin C is also highly effective in boosting one's immune system in combating varied pathogens and infection that contribute to aggravation of vocal cord polyps. Also, be sure to make necessary lifestyle changes that contribute to your condition such as drinking more water, avoiding smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages, and steering clear from spicy, greasy, or fatty food.

Proper diet is key to managing vocal cord polyps. We've discussed some dietary steps you can take earlier in this guide, and linked a number of articles, one of which is listed below. That said, you also need to focus on not speaking or singing as much. Much like a long distance runner needs to stop running when they pull a muscle or develop a problem, you'll also need to slow down a bit, and even stop singing or talking much while your voice heals.
