Is it possible to reverse vocal damage?
Yes, it is possible to reverse the vocal damage. There are different vocal therapies that you can try. There is an urgent need to see your doctor when you are having a hard time swallowing, coughing up blood or have severe pain. For damaged vocal cords, there are two main treatments:
- Short-term therapy - this is when you need to rest your voice and avoid using your vocal cords. You may still talk, but do it only when necessary.
- Long-term rest - you will be taught how to make the proper sounds or how to speak correctly without putting too much strain on the vocal cords.
Keep in mind, while it is possible to reverse the damage but consider how bad the vocal damage as there may be a chance that your vocal chords may not repair itself %100 but it will, in fact, repair itself to some extent. Drinking lemon tea or honey tea can help to provide acids to your throat and vocals that can promote yourself to have healthier vocals. Also Vitamins A, C, and E are available to help you to repair your vocal chord damage.
