Vocal cord injury could occur at any given time and affect anybody, regardless if they are a professional speaker or professional singer.
A regular person, while speaking does not always realize that they are using their voice excessively loud and sometimes forcing their voice to the max in order to make a point. This type of voice misuse could very easily lead to the injury of their vocal cords and vocal anatomy.
If, on top of everything else, in the environment where the person is residing or otherwise being around other unhealthy surroundings, the voice problem will be even more prone to happen.
For example: In places where the climate is very dry (desert-like), the human body and vocal box, in particular, does not get enough moisture; and thus the vocal anatomy becomes very dry which could cause symptoms like a sore throat and, nevertheless, dry vocal cords. The latter could easily lead to any kind of vocal cord growths such as nodules, polyps, cysts, lesions – just to name a few…
With that said, one’s throat has to be kept moist, free of gastric acid and (needless to say) mucus. The above could be easily achieved by following a ‘mucus-less’ and a low acidic diet. The person should drink plenty of water and avoid dairy foods consumed in access (cheese, milk, yogurt, ice cream, peanut butter and etc.)
– Spicy foods
– Most carbonated drinks
And many others…
As for singers, they should follow the same guidelines, (i.e., not to scream and not to force their voice to the max while speaking and/or singing). They should learn a proper vocal technique, which will allow them to use their voice in the fullest capacity possible, but yet with no pain or strain on their vocal anatomy.
Adapting the above-described technique will not only prevent a singer’s voice from succumbing to vocal cord Injury but will enhance their vocal performance to its maximum capacity and quality.
Through the application of natural herbs and homeopathic remedies, the symptoms that are associated with vocal cord injury will also be eliminated. Furthermore, once you’ve learned how to use your voice properly (proper technique and the right application of your voice), you will no longer cause damage to your vocal cords.
