GUEST,Gene Burton Healing voice strain (36) RE: Healing voice strain 14 May 03

I'm periodically affected by the same problem myself. For most singers, this kind of strain is caused by inflammation of the voicebox, arising from overuse. I find the best remedy is to gargle soluble aspirin, three or four times a day for about 3 days ('cos aspirin has both anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties), obviously whilst resting the voice as much as possible. This usually fixes it, until the next time...Whiskey and orange is also a good short-term throat tonic if you find your voice is starting to crack halfway through the evening.
