Our voice is an amaz­ing tool that gives each of us a per­son­al­i­ty that allows us to com­mu­ni­cate and express our­selves. And for many, the voice is the most impor­tant means of pro­fes­sion­al real­iza­tion. We use our vocal appa­ra­tus every day, with­out think­ing about how frag­ile and vul­ner­a­ble it is. What can cause exces­sive stress on the vocal cords?

Who is at risk

Com­fort­able and harm­less to the voice is con­sid­ered to be a job in which a per­son speaks in total no more than 16 hours per week. But for those who teach at a school or uni­ver­si­ty, con­duct excur­sions or train­ings, speak on radio or tele­vi­sion, work as a leader, lawyer, sec­re­tary or dis­patch­er, this time increas­es. up to 20–25 hours and more. In gen­er­al, accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, about half of the peo­ple work is asso­ci­at­ed with an increased voice load, and there are more and more “speech” pro­fes­sions. By the way, the risk group includes both foot­ball fans and karaoke lovers. From fre­quent stress, the voice sits down, becomes rough or hoarse. There are symp­toms such as a sen­sa­tion of a lump in the throat, per­spi­ra­tion, dry­ness or tin­gling in the throat, dry cough. In the worst case, nod­ules can even appear on the lig­a­ments — the so-called vocal cord gran­u­lo­mas.

  • Time­ly heals lgo to bed-organs and teeth after the dis­ease, increase the speech load grad­u­al­ly.
  • try hard don’t talk in the cold and in windy weath­er, and do not have long con­ver­sa­tions on the plane.

  • Avoid long stays in rooms with dry or dusty air, as well as with air con­di­tion­ing.

They have a pro­tec­tive, anti-inflam­ma­to­ry, immunomod­u­la­to­ry and antimi­cro­bial effect, and will also be a real find for those who expe­ri­ence increased stress on the vocal cords. The mucous mem­brane of the phar­ynx and lar­ynx will be reli­ably pro­tect­ed.
