There’s nothing worse than coming down with a sore throat, hoarseness, raspy voice, or even laryngitis right before you have to sing or do a seminar. This technique will be a lifesaver, especially if you do it at the first sign of vocal cord irritation.
I have used this technique on professional Opera Singers, Professors of Music, Singers and even people with laryngitis, when their medications have no effect.
Recently, Google’s CEO Larry Page experienced vocal cord paralysis. It occurred after a cold and suspicion has it that it’s probably a virus. The nature of viruses are strange, in that you can’t kill them because they are not alive in the first place. The body first has to be run down and become susceptible to the virus. When it comes out of remission, it could hide in the vocal cords. This is why stress is always the trigger.
Here’s the procedure:
First, locate the soreness, tickle, or hoarseness by pointing on the front of the neck.
Next, draw an imaginary circle around the neck to the back part.
Lastly, press into the neck segment and hold for at least 2 minutes. The way you know you have the correct point is that it will be at least twice as sore as the soreness in the throat - interesting. If it is not sore, then move up or down until you find the most tender area on the back part of your neck.
After a minute of pressing, evaluate the severity of your symptom and you’ll notice something very strange – it’s gone.
All we are doing is removing stuck stress in the vocal cords to allow your body to function correctly.
In many cases, I also have the person take 1 Adrenal Body Type Support before bed AND one to two kale shakes (make from scratch) per day. Kale has loads of vitamin A, which the vocal cords and the immune system need to function. The last thing I check for is making sure your 'stress' that originally lowered your immune system gets handled or improved.
