    • I posted what I thought of the video you posted: As for immune boosters, I mentioned the herbal ones I use such as Yin Chiao, Zong Gan Ling, and Sinus Take Care. For Yin Chiao, I suggest looking up suggested dosage, rather than following what's on the bottle. What's on the bottle is usually preventative, not nearly as much or often as you would take it when fighting something off.
    • I watched you video and I know you did mention some of them but can you please give some names of immune boosters I can get from the chemist?   What did you think of that vedio I posted?
    • I studied accupressure for years. This works to a degree, and only because it cuts off nerve response and bloodflow to specific muscle groups, allowing them to relax and swelling to go down. It's great for tension headaches too. Even more effective, or perhaps in conjunction, is doing Ingo Titze's straw exercises. However, I also suggest immune boosters, especially herbal because they are mroe gentle and you process them like food; warm salt water gargles; nasal rinses and more. Here's my quick run-down of things to do:  
    • Just been watching the video in this link and have to ask; what do you think of it all? http://takelessons.com/blog/lost-voice-remedies-z02
    • I have a consistent issue that I definitely need to figure out how to fix... My voice isn't that loud to begin with, but the tone of my voice seems to be in a place where it just disappears into ambient noise.  It doesn't carry over it like most other people's voices do.  When I am in a loud environment (even just a place like a bar or restaurant with a lot of ambient noise), my voice does not carry at all and I find myself trying to speak louder to compensate.  Which, obviously, is not healthy.  The bigger problem comes in when I'm trying to SING.  Without monitors it's just bad.  Even WITH monitors, if the vocals aren't turned up pretty loudly in it, I don't sing as well.  I unconsciously try to sing louder (because I can't hear myself well enough) which results in a not-ideal vocal sound, my range disappears, and I end up being a bit pitchy as well.   In the moment, I don't particularly feel like I'm tense or straining in any way, although I am very much aware that I can't hit half the notes I usually can and I am aware that I don't sound quite normal.  When I listen back, it clearly sounds like I'm trying to be louder, not quite like I'm yelling but in that direction.   What is the core issue here, and how might I go about fixing it?  I need to be able to hear myself better, and of course having a better monitor setup will help.  But I really need to be able to hear my voice over simple ambient noise so that even in a less-than-ideal monitor setup, I can still sing well.  And I have no idea what the true problem is that's causing all of this.  Help!
    • Although it is possible... I have seen it before, the likelihood that this is a serious issue is next to 0. This is totally all in your head... no pun intended. With all due respect, RIDICULOUS! Of course you can find your falsetto. You must be confused as to what falsetto is or just need a very basic coaching session to show you. Yes, it is a serious issue if you want to sing in your head voice and advance as a singer. You would have to start here. NO WAY. Almost Impossible... totally absurd. This is like saying, "I can't scratch my back". Of course you can, this is silly. I'll prove it to you and show you how to do it, feel it, kinesthetics, etc... Let's resolve this issue. Take a lesson with me and for $100, I'll show you where your falsetto is. http://bit.ly/IntroductionPrivateLesson70 
    • I've got this slight problem with my voice, and thought I'd get your guys opinions on it. Basically, as the title states, I can't find my falsetto. It's been this way for 5 years maybe? I think this whole thing started after I caught a particulary bad flu. The rest of my voice is perfectly fine and I have no problems getting into "head voice", but when I try to get into falsetto I crack and go into head voice instead. Sometimes trying falsetto even hurts. The only time I can sing stuff in falsetto is after a long gig or practice session. What's the deal? This hasn't bothered me for the longest time but I've been starting to feel as if there's this whole part of my voice I can't seem to unlock. Is this a matter of persistent vocal training or is there something wrong with my vocal cords? Thanks a lot in advance!
    • So since this is basically a "journal" per say - i saw some other posts and they had their progress which was pretty cool. I don't think i'll be posting audios anytime soon but i can update atleast on some things that happened right after i had this discussion in this thread.

      Now, it wasn't directly related to anything anyone said here, it has more to do with what i said here " Looks like i need to start forgetting what i learned from those other programs and just start from complete scratch through T4P method. I was trying to fuse some stuff from other programs with T4P, and i guess that's not the best idea. Or if anything i should evaluate what causes possible conflict with T4P and remove it accordingly."

      I changed my vocal routine, adjusted my "priorities", basically i feel my routine had some exercises and such that were giving me great results (aside from TVS) so i was giving more priority to such. Which now it seems it was indeed a mistake. Now to be fair, i was still improving in some way almost every single day. But with this "adjusted" priorities - i mean - basically giving much more focus to T4P. It's way better. I was giving it in my opinion a good amount of focus and repetition already, but obviously not enough.

      I think i mentioned already above that i'm reckless when it comes to practicing, i pretty much practice all day honestly. And before although i was improving, i was getting fatigued fairly often. I still haven't had long to properly test this new routine, but i can certainly say that just yesterday (being the first day of trying it). As opposed to my previous routine which i always felt like something was missing, it just felt like my voice was not responding completely so i was giving it rest days, and i started re-valuating my priorities (which included breathing which is what drove me to make the post, and i am also giving that more priority now).

      It feels like my voice started warming up much faster, getting clarity, stability, agility, texture, stamina, consistency (which is something i struggle with a bit)).

      It was a great feeling. So far today it looks to be going great again, it's a great feeling to feel like you can actually hear as your voice warms up and gets stronger pretty fast. Before giving T4P more priority/practice time i felt like my voice was just inconsistent.

      Obviously it's just the 2nd day of re-adjusting, but it feels permanent.

      Funny thing is i did it right the first couple of weeks (giving it enough time) but then i felt like i didn't want to feel like "i wasted my money on other programs" so i started trying to balance the other techniques with T4P. And odd things started happening, still improving, but way slower. And of course as i mentioned voice getting fatigued and being inconsistent.

      I guess this foolish experience of mine just serves as an example of, if you're not getting results from T4P, you must certainly be doing something wrong. In this case for me, i was getting results, but not to the complete extent capable because of lack of practice time given to such. Which the thing is, i was still giving about rougly an hour to it. But giving it more certainly amplified results. And besides, to be fair i understand the T4P concepts better now than at the start, as well as the routine is more natural as opposed to having to constantly watch videos again to "grasp it" better or remind myself for safety or reassurance that i'm doing it right.

      I'm currently doing Breathing exercises, FBR, Integrated Routines (Mostly Onsets on Melodic 5ths aka what Robert does in his demonstrations). And then i do my other stuff, which btw, T4P seems to enhance the effects of my other preferred exercises aside from T4P. Which is really cool.

      I might update further, but hopefully just that gives some insight to anyone that goes through a similar situation. Yes i'm quite the ranter i know.

      Wish this foolish soul luck.

      (i will certainly review the program eventually, just want to experience it completely before i do so i can have much more to say aka do it justice)
