How to recover a lost voice?

Asked by robmandu (21205 points ) April 22nd, 2008

Had to talk all day today. And will have to again tomorrow. Right now, I sound like Barry White ate a frog. What do you recommend to restore my voice back to its previous dulcet tone glory?

Polish Remedy: VODKA, butter, and honey (all warmed up, of course)!

drink iced coffee and have a cough drop

judochop's avatar

cold drinks and caffine are a bad idea.

Cough drops aren’t what you need for a ‘talked out’ throat. Warm drinks and honey. Good stuff.

A really good short term remedy is to gargle warm apple cider vinegar and water. That’ll make your voice sound like normal for about a half hour. That’s what I use when I record and I have no voice at all. Works like magic!

would you believe I have some apple cider vinegar that’s Organic, Raw, Unfiltered, with the ‘Mother’… but it’s at home.

And I’m not.

Sip on hot water with lots of honey and lemon – honey was recently proven to be more effective than cough syrup at alleviating children’s symptoms

And just b/c it’s worth saying, no honey for widdle kids under 1 y.o.

Thx all!
