Tips to take care of your voice when it’s cold

Knowing how to take care of your voice is essential, especially when it’s cold, and more especially during the autumn and winter months. We discovered some useful tips that will be of great help to you

The vocal cords are two bands of smooth muscle tissue that we find located in the larynx, which produce sound by vibrating when they collide with the air. While the two upper vocal cords are the main responsible for our voice, we can also find two lower ones (that is, in total, human beings have four vocal cords). Different diseases and disorders can affect the vocal cords, such as aphonic.

Aphonic is considered as the partial or total loss of voice. There are several causes that can cause the appearance of aphonic: rupture of the recurrent laryngeal nerve, alcohol or tobacco abuse, ingestion of irritating and toxic products… However, among the most common we find diseases of the respiratory system, such as for example pharyngitis, tonsillitis and irrigative cough, as well as inflammations in the throat, larynx or pharynx.

In this sense, there is no doubt that cold is one of the main causes of hoarseness, which is why it is especially appropriate to know what tips help when caring for the voice efficiently and effectively.

Why should we take care of our voice when it’s cold?

There is no doubt that the cold is one of those necessary ‘companions’ every time autumn and winter arrive. And it is that with the arrival of these two seasons the temperatures also drop, and the bad weather is joined by the rain and the wind, so that it is more common –and normal- to catch a cold and get sick.

When we catch a cold there are several symptoms that tend to accompany it. One of the most common is throat inflammation, which in all cases causes a sore throat and discomfort, especially when swallowing and eating. They are known as seasonal diseases, and are definitely infectious disorders characteristic of both autumn and winter.

Tips to care for your voice naturally when it’s cold

Don’t force your voice

Although this is advice that we should follow practically all year round, given that the cold tends to affect our vocal cords and our throat, it is very important to try not to force our voices. And how to get it? Very simple: try to speak naturally and effortlessly, avoiding yelling if not necessary and speaking excessively loudly, forcing it.

It is also not advisable to cough suddenly or clear your throat, in addition to very pronounced sneezes.

Wrap up well

Whenever you go out into the street, it is very important that you dress warmly, protecting and caring for your throat with the help of high neck clothes, scarves or handkerchiefs, which also cover the neck (a part of the body that we tend to forget very easily).

Hydrate properly

Maintaining correct and regular hydration is equally essential. And as with not straining your voice, it is also essential to do it all year round and not just during the fall and winter.  To do this, remember to drink between 6 to 8 glasses of water every day, in addition to opting for other natural drinks such as juices at room temperature (never cold), and infusions.

On the other hand, you should avoid those drinks that dehydrate the vocal folds, such as tea and coffee.

In the event that you must take medications such as antihistamines, because you suffer from allergies or some other illness typical of these seasons of the year, it is essential that you always consume them with enough water.

Be careful with certain foods

When it comes to taking care of the voice in autumn and winter, it is essential to keep in mind what we eat at all times. For example, it is not recommended to have food or drinks that are too hot or too cold.

It is also interesting to avoid those foods that stimulate stomach acids, which cause reflux and heartburn, which can affect the larynx causing irritation. At this point, you should avoid acidic, spicy, and sour-tasting foods.
