I lost my voice very late this Wednesday night, so late its probably better to say very early Thursday morning. I loose my voice a lot and I keep cough drops with zinc on hand. I have Spring Preview for college on Sunday so I need to get my voice back as quickly as possible. The cough drops were less affective than usual because my laryngitis was considerably worse than usual. I gargled salt water Friday night and did multiple sinus rinses. Nothing seemed to drastically improve my voice. So finally Saturday morning I reluctantly gargled with Apple Cider Vinegar while in the shower (since I keep some in there for dandruff, its amazing!) the taste was terrible of course, but my voice was almost back. I'd say I went from having 10% to 60% of my voice in one use. Now for dinner I've put Cayenne in the corn I'm going to eat, because I have a low tolerance for spicy foods but I figure mixed with other foods I should be able to handle it. Hopefully my voice will be back by tomorrow!

I had acute laryngitis on Saturday morning. So I started drinking tea with lemons in it. The next day, I woke up feeling worse. So I yahooed cures for laryngitis and stumbled across this site. I switched from drinking tea to apple cider vinegar and had immediate results. Then, I started taking cough drops and noticed that my throat was becoming more and more congested. So I stopped taking the cough drops and found out about Cayenne pepper. I mixed it in with the ACV and lemon water and regained 60% of my voice in an hour!!!! It's now Tuesday morning and I have 100% of my voice restored!!!
