Borax for Chronic Laryngitis (Voice Loss) and Difficulty Swallowing
Following a severe chronic illness from which I have otherwise fully recovered, my singing voice was lost. Although I am a trained vocalist in both soprano and alto ranges, I was only able to sing tenor for seven years. In addition, I experienced a difficulty swallowing such that I would frequently have to try twice to make a single bolus pass my epiglotis. I never connected these two problems in my mind, but after a week of very conservative borax use I have experienced relief from both. I have most of my singing voice back, but for a slight artifact on a few notes, and my swallowing has become normal again. I suspect that the cause of both of these problems was a swollen set of parathyroids, which correlates with hyperparathyroidism, which is known to be a possible result of boron deficiency. While by no means conclusive, I think I have a fairly good explanation for my experience and I would recommend careful use of borax to anyone willing to take the "risk".
I suggest anyone who has a parathyroid problem to look into "boron parathyroid ". Boron controls the parathyroids. The highest concentration of boron in the whole body is in the parathyroids, and without it you will have hyperparathyroid. Do a simple google search of " boron parathyroid ". Extensive information not told to you by ENT doctors. Instead they want to cut them out. Real smart! Also vitamin D3 plays a part in parathyroid, as well as magnesium. And lastly iodine is needed for the thyroid to produce calcitonin. Calcitonin controls blood calcium cells. Look into this aswell as hypothyroid is another cause for elevated blood calcium. Oh and dehydration, if you're not getting enough real salt can raise serum calcium. Give these a shot but boron is number one! It's a mineral!

Physical Activity & Water & Vitamin D
Hypercalcemia is usually a cause of Inactivity.
Your bones release calcium if you don't put your body weight on them. (1)
"Primary hyperparathyroidism (P-HPTH) -- is relatively common and predominantly affects women. Prior studies have shown that physical activity (PA) can lower PTH levels." (2)
One should get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobicactivity, which is about 50 minutes of moderate activity 60 to 70 Max HeartRate three times a Week. 220 – (age) = 100% of your MAX. (3)
To give a perspective, one runs with moderate activity 3 miles in 30 minutes if moderately conditioned. This would equate to about 5 miles per session, three times a week of jogging (4). This is 15 miles per week minimum.
A weight exercise program should also be incorporated as it puts pressure on the bones. Doingfull-body exercises. · Pushups. · Squats. · Burpees. · Lunges.
Almost half of American population have a Vit D deficiency (https://www.cantonmercy.org/healthchat/42-percent-of-americans-are-vitamin-d-deficient/)
Drink Water to excrete calcium, National Academic of Sciences of Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is: About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men. (https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/fitness/expert-answers/exercise/faq-20057916)
We found a significant decrease in PTH with increasing doses of vitamin D supplementation up to intakes of 4000 IU/d (Vitamin D should be at least 50 ng/ml or more)
