Laryngitis is inflammation of the larynx (voice box), the upper part of the windpipe, the pharynx (located below the root of tongue) and/or the trachea (windpipe).
Symptoms of laryngitis include hoarseness, loss of voice, constant need or urge to clear the throat, and/or a tickling sensation at the back of the throat. In some cases, laryngitis can also be accompanied by pain, fatigue, difficulty swallowing, and fever.
Laryngitis can be caused by viral, yeast (candidiasis), and/or bacterial infections; excessive use of the voice; screaming; rage; allergies; inhalation of irritating substances; or because of illnesses such as flu, bronchitis, measles, diphtheria, and pneumonia. All of these underlying factors must be screened for an addressed to fully resolve laryngitis.
Increase your intake of pure filtered water, hot herbal teas, diluted fruit juices, and broths.
Eat an organic whole foods diet that emphasizes raw fruit and vegetables.
Avoid foods that you are allergic or sensitive to.
Cook with garlic, ginger, shiitake mushrooms and reishi mushrooms, as they all have immune-boosting properties.
Avoid sugars and refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and milk and dairy products.
It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:
- Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
- Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
- Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
- Avoid all fast food restaurants.
- Avoid all canned food.
- Avoid conventional beef. The best beef is organic grass fed beef. The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey. Check out www.grasslandbeef.com.
- Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
- Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met. The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product. You can find more details here kevintrudeaudailylifesessentials.com
- Take Alli-C (super powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasite garlic capsules) – 4 capsules three times a day. 1 capsule is the equivalent to 40 cloves of garlic (without the breath to go with it!!)
- Take Vitamin A, beta carotene and vitamin c with bioflavonoids.
- Take Fivelac probiotics.
- Take zinc lonzenges every 1-2 hours (if nausea occurs, decrease dosages). In one study, people who sucked on a lozenge containing about 13 milligrams of zinc every two hours got rid of viral sore throats three to four days quicker than those who didn’t.
Prescription and non-prescription medication:
What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking? Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications, but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.
