My voice :( was created by Planet of Chaos
Hey, guys! I really damaged my voice last week, singing when I thought my cold had subsided. This is one of the more sucky things that could have happened to me while trying to get my band together to gig again. It's been pretty bad since Wed night with no clear end in sight. It's caused me a lot of anger and grief. I need help to get better soon. My voice is one of my true defining characteristics. Without it, I feel like less of a person. Less than myself. Any good thoughts or healing Force you could send my way, would be appreciated.

Grab a large glass, add hot water, rhum, (natural) brown sugar, lemon juice. mix it and drink. Also avoid using your voice (for talking or singing). And smoking. Should do the trick, an tastes better than the stuff you get at the chemist's.

I agree with the lemon and honey. 1 drop of lemon oil per teaspoon of honey and swallow.
There is also an oil called bergamot that will help, you can take it in a similar manner as the lemon oil, but they must be Certified Pure Theraputic Grade oils to be safe to take internally, which you cannot buy from a store but must order online.
Simple lemon juice you extract yourself will be more beneficial than the lemon juice you can buy bottled at the store. You'll need more juice than just a drop as it will not be as concentrated.

I hope you feel better soon. :)

Lemon juice must be fresh, and therefore full of vitamins!

I recommend ginger, lemon and honey tea.

The Force will be with you, always.

And do not fret, for what events have no beneficial opportunities and reason? A time given for rest is a time well worth it to regain strength, energy, and clarity. :)

Be careful using lemon, it is acidic and in larger amounts can worse the irritation. Honey added to earl grey (bergamot) tea or rose hip tea. nothing too hot or too cold. And as my mother always told me..."for god sake shut up!" :evil:

The Force is not about what you are wanting to achieve, it is about your ability to listen to the Universe, and answer its call!

I am a Jedi, My continuing goal is the balance of all things in life. It is to treat everyone with kindness and compassion.

I do not believe in social tolerance...I believe in mutual respect!
I don't tolerate you, I respect our differences, our similarities, and your right to whatever I have a right to.

Yeah, not using my voice has proved much harder than I thought. Being a guy, not talking comes so much easier, I thought. I don't even have to talk much at all doing massage for a living. Yet, since I can't use my voice, it makes want to talk that much more! Sucks, I find I can't even listen to music cuz it incites my envy! It's been pretty depressing.
