Do you have a hoarseness? Change your diet!

Your throat hurts? Do you have fits of cough? Not necessarily mentioned disabilities must be immediately associated with infection or other more serious diseases. Sometimes it is enough to change the daily menu to improve the condition of the organs of the voice and respiratory system.

It is true that what you eat does not go directly to the larynx and vocal folds located in it, but it is not indifferent to the body and the conditions in which they work. In fact, the whole of nutrition determines the condition of all systems, but you can create a list of products that promote the proper functioning of the organs of the voice, but above all those that cause discomfort in them. Remember that the body’s reactions to individual products are individual. The following lists of proposals relate primarily to the time in which the work of the voice is increased.


Horseradish, garlic, onions, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, cherries, lemon, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, kiwi, bananas, kefir, buttermilk, nuts, chocolate, biscuits, halva, wholemeal bread, spicy spices, anise, licorice, ground flax, sunflower seeds, rhubarb, fried foods, strong tea and coffee, alcohol, red meat, lard.


Mango, apricot, raspberry, blackberry, nectarine, peach, carrot juice (natural, one day), aloe, cereal, spelled, weak tea, e.g. green with sea-buckthorn, any lettuce with oil or tomato and oil, spinach, potatoes, pumpkin, eggplant , zucchini, artichoke, avocado, linseed oil, argan oil and other vegetable oils, flax seed, dried fruits (preferably organic), dishes and unsweetened drinks with lukewarm temperature, stewed, boiled or steamed, bay leaf, marjoram, sage.

Take care of fluids …

Insufficient hydratation of the mucous membranes often causes damage to the vocal folds during their vibrations. They can not then perform their function and are also not protected by sluices. What’s more, with the effort of the vocal folds “swell”, they become congested and abnormal. In severe cases, polyps, vocal cords and other diseases may form. The amount of fluids needs to be adapted to your lifestyle (if you are physically active, your demand is increasing) and your state of health (eg diseases of the excretory system). Most preferably, you should drink non-carbonated mineral water, weak tea, infusions of lemon balm, mint, lime or chamomile. All fluids should have a lukewarm temperature .
