Are you suffering from a vocal cord disorder or have otherwise lost your voice? Do you suffer from acute or enduring voice issues? Certain home remedies can help soothe inflamed vocal folds and throat tissues so that you can get your normal voice back.
Singers in particular often have a treasure trove of various folk remedies for restoring a lost voice or repairing a sore throat or vocal folds. Some of these home remedies can be effective, some of them can do more harm than good.
Home Remedies: Hydration, especially with warm beverages, should be your first step to restore your voice. Honey, vinegar, and cayenne are traditional home remedies for both soothing and stimulating a sore throat or inflamed vocal tissues. For long-term or developing vocal issues such as the loss of speech that can come with Parkinson's, speech therapy and certain vocal exercises can strengthen the throat and mouth so as to improve vocal performance.

[YEA] Hi, I want to thank everyone for recommending Apple Cider Vinegar and Neti Pot for curing sinus infection. The unexpected bonus was helping me with a voice disorder/problem that I had since 2005. I would lose my voice for months at a time (sounding like Minnie Mouse) and get it back for a week or two. I went to 3 different ENTs and was told something different each time I went. Diagnoses ranged from a mental problem to getting the wrong kind of voice therapy. I have sinus/allergy problems since I was a child and tried taking OTC medications at the recommendation of my family Doctor for my Laryngitis but it never helped. I even tried Acid reflux meds. Nothing helped until this past March when I went online to look for a natural cure for a sinus infection I had, 2nd one in two months. I hate taking antibiotics. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Apple cider Vinegar would help my voice!!! I have had my voice for 11 weeks now and still counting!!! The longest I've had it since 2005!!! I take APV at least once a day, up to 3 times when I have a allergy/sinus problem and still have a voice!!! Thank you again! It's so great to talk normal again!!!
