Reclaim Your Clear and Healthy Voice
Many patients can treat their hoarseness at home with self-care measures. To reclaim your clear and healthy voice, try the following:
Get Plenty of Fluids
Drink tea, water, and juice frequently to moisten your throat and relieve your symptoms. Avoid caffeine and alcohol because they can dry out your throat and exacerbate your voice problems.
Rest Your Voice
Don’t talk, shout, or whisper. All of these can strain your vocal cords. Instead, stay silent for a few days to give your voice a much-needed break.
Moisten the Air
Run a humidifier in the bedroom or take a hot shower to open your airways.
Smoke and allergens in the environment can worsen hoarseness, so try to avoid them.
