What are the best foods to eat to help get over laryngitis?

Garlic: Chicken soup, garlic, lemon -- hopefully not all together. Anything that gives you indigestion can actually prolong laryngitis. Avoid alcohol and mints. Hope you feel better soon. Rest your voice.

I have laryngitis. What is the best thing I can do to stay from laryngitis?

Strict voice rest: Strict voice rest will usually lead to resolution of hoarseness within 24 hours. If you must speak avoid whispering as this puts more strain on vocal cords than attempting to speak in a normal voice. If hoarseness persists despite strict voice rest then evaluation by a physician is indicated.

Is the cambridge diet safe when you are ill with flu and laryngitis and have very weak immune system? Is it ok to not eat proper food?

Is the cambridge diet safe when you are ill with flu and laryngitis and have very weak immune system? Is it ok to not eat proper food?

No: Ask your own doctor first. But i'd recommend caution with any diet plan that relies on "replacement" food from one company. It's never "ok to not eat proper food, " as it isn't sustainable without continuing to buy company food. The foods may have various nutrients, but with the flu you may not be able to stomach such processed products. Why not learn how to cook & eat healthily instead?

Family practice: You may have acid reflux. You may have some scaring of your esophagus from it. See your dr for treatment and possibly see a GI specialist to take a look down your throat.

I've eaten too much. What's the best way to get over a "food coma"?

I've eaten too much. What's the best way to get over a "food coma"?

Mild Exercise: The "food coma" is a result of blood moving from your arms, legs and brain to your gut to digest the food which also requires energy. After consuming large meals your body may feel lethargic. Try walking or doing mild non-stressful activities during this time to keep blood flowing to other parts of your body. Eating smaller meals more frequently will also reduce the effects of said "coma".

What is the best way to get over food cravings? Varied, depend on deficiencies > what is in the house.

What is the best way to get over food cravings? Varied, depend on deficiencies > what is in the house.

Varies: Often our food cravings are due to allergies to those foods. Our bodies reaction to a food we're allergic to often is initially stimulating so we "crave" them. Chocolate craving can be from mg deficiency. Carbohydrate craving from lack of serotonin or from adrenal fatigue and body telling us to look for quick energy sources. Find functional medicine doc to help explore and correct this.

I have laryngitis, is there a high probability my 3, 2, and 1 year old will also get it?

I have laryngitis, is there a high probability my 3, 2, and 1 year old will also get it?

Yes: People in one household tend to get the same upper respiratory infections at the same time, because the germs (usually viruses) are contagious. In the fall season, we see kids getting croup (cold symptoms and a barky cough). The same viruses that cause croup will cause laryngitis in teens and adults.

I was just wondering if it is possible to get laryngitis from a car accident and if it is then how? What causes it?

Laryngitis: Laryngitis is an injury or infection of the larynx. It is usually caused by infection or trauma. If the voice box was injured in the car accident then yes this is probably related. If there was no throat injury then the this is most likely coincidental.

How can I get my voice back after laryngitis?

Depends: Majority of the time, the voice will fully recover after a bout of acute laryngitis. If it does not, I would encourage having your throat and vocal cords examined to rule out any other worrisome pathology, especially if you are a smoker.

Do lots of people get laryngitis, or is it unusual?

Common: Laryngitis is an inflammation of the lining of the voicebox (the larynx) and occurs as a residual effect of colds and other upper respiratory infections (which are common) but can also occur from overuse (lengthy singing or yelling loudly like at a sports game) and rarely from growths on the larynx. Your otolaryngologist can evaluate this and give you the best remedy.
