Hi I sing in a rock cover band doing stuff from white snake, Mötley Crüe, jovi ect and I generally get through my first set ok but then we have a break and when we begin the second set my voice begins to deteriorate and starts sounds crackly and produces phlem. Please help me as we are about to start giging next month and I'd like some tips on what to do between sets I drink room temp water all the time while singing, but is anything else to help stop this or have control over it?

Dion,

Water, water, and more water.

But may I also suggest you review the products of our sponsors ? I've have tried many of them and they have worked very well for me. Following are links for your convenience :

Just Gotta Sing >> http://store.justgottasing.com/?AffId=6

Superior Vocal Health >> http://store.superiorvocalhealth.com/?Click=67

Vishudda Singers Tea >> http://singerstea.com/

Here's an additional link containing "Product Reviews" >> http://themodernvocalistworld.com/category/vocal-product-reviews/

Depending on where you live, and considering the weather conditions at this time of the year, the following article may also be of some help to you. Sinus drainage via the Eustacian tube which MAY be causing the phlegm ? These techniques have helped me immensely !

Hope this helps....

Warmest Regards,

Adolph

My pleasure, Dion.

I'm not a doctor, nor do I know what medications you are taking. You may want to ask your own doctor. OR, if you want to maintain privacy, feel free to email me and I will ask one of my doctors if your medication or the hiatal hernia could be the cause. I would happily do that for you !!! :)

It seems that once I get through the first set the rest rest time I have In between starts my voice deteriorating and the mucus starts to get in the way. Could the time resting be bad and cooling down my voice rapidly?

Because I drink plenty of water and sometime eucalyptus chewing gum helps a little but I'm always needing to spit and clear my throat. What else can I do?

Dion, let me know when you get the tea... YES, it will help... of course! I wouldn't sell it or put my name on it if it didn't... it helps a lot of people around the world. We move about 100 bags of tea and vocal inhalers every month... I drink it when I film demonstration content for "The Four Pillars of Singing"...

Do you have acid reflux?

Dion,

I'll second Robert regarding the Singers Tea which is why I included the link (above). Yes, it DOES work and I have been using it as well from the time it came out on the market.

As for acid reflux. You didn't mention what you are taking. Perhaps one of the side effects MAY be causing the issues you are experiencing. (???) I mention this simply because many years ago I was prescribed a drug for ulcers, but one of the side effects were --- and this is a DIRECT QUOTE) >> "Prolonged use of this product may cause stomach cancer". Needless to say, I quit that drug IMMEDIATELY ! So please check the side effects of any drug that you use just as I do. I'm just looking out for your best interests and not trying to scare you....

I've been using Omeprazole, although not for acid reflux, but for difficulty swallowing due to several cervical spinal surgeries which caused a significant amount of scar tissue. Please note that Omeprazole works excellent for acid reflux ! It doesn't affect my singing or speaking voice at all. Personally, I haven't had any side effects, but for your information, I'm attaching a link for your review >>

Thank you very much guys, I can't wait till the tea arrives and inhaler. And I'll defiantly look into the tablets I'm taking they are called nexium.

You're most welcome, Dion :)

I'm sure you're going to love the Singers Tea. AND the inhaler since you've ordered the kit....

I read about Nexium and I didn't find anything to suggest that it would cause the problem you are experiencing.

However, with regards to Omeprazole, do not mix them !!! I looked that up as well >>

http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-20536/nexium-oral/details#interactions

And do contact Robert about the tea as he suggested. We are both here to help !!!

Kindly keep us posted here as well. I'd like to know if your "issues" are resolved......

Warmest Regards,

Adolph

Dion, 

 

I certainly don't want to suggest MORE medication, but as far as phlegm goes I have had great luck with good old Mucinex. Get the generic version from Walmart or your local drugstore. The active ingredient is guaifenesin, which you can read about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guaifenesin. I'm one of those "naturally phlegmy people," but guaifenesin helps knock it back into line.
