Sound Off

During Easter weekend, I developed laryngitis. Sooooo bad for business, in my industry. With commercial auditions, and possible bookings, I had to do something. In a desperate attempt to regain my voice, I chose some natural, over-the-counter, and home remedies (Thank you, Google, and Mr. Whole Body Team Member) that helped me to get back on track within a week…just in time for a commercial shoot.

Here’s what I used:


1.  Chamomile Tea:  Calming, soothing, and anti-inflammatory, I enjoyed sipping Pukka’s Chamomile/Vanilla/Manuka Honey blend.

2.  Homeopathic Medicine:  I was told that Boiron’s Roxalia Tablets are a customer favorite for hoarseness at my local Whole Foods Market.  So, I gave them a try and got some relief from my symptoms.

3.  Lozenges:  Nature’s Way Sambucus Organic Zinc Lozenges helped to keep my throat moist, and give my immune system a boost.

4.  Water:  When it comes to hydrating and moisturizing from the inside out, it doesn’t get more natural than this.

5.  Humidifier:  I placed several drops of eucalyptus oil in my warm humidifier’s reservoir, and breathed in the vapors overnight.  The anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties of eucalyptus oil definitely helped my cause.

6.  Rest:  Keeping still and being quiet were the hardest “pills” to swallow throughout this ordeal.  Ironically, they were probably the most beneficial.

How do you handle hoarseness, holistically?

Please comment, share, and [as always] take care!
