Hoarse Voice? Clear It Up with Homeopathy

Hoarseness is a symptom, not a disease that refers to abnormal voice changes. Due to hoarseness, the voice sounds strained, deep, breathy, harsh, raspy or weak. There may also be changes in the pitch of the voice. It may be attended with throat dryness and scratchiness in the throat. Homeopathic medicines for hoarse voice help treat the problem naturally.

The most common reason for hoarseness of voice is laryngitis that mainly arises from a viral infection. Other reasons include vocal cord nodules/polyps, allergies, irritants like smoking, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, where stomach acid comes and irritates the vocal folds), injury to voice box (larynx) or vocal cords, thyroid issues, cancer of larynx and neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Myasthenia Gravis, Multiple Sclerosis. Overuse of voice, speaking loudly, screaming, yelling, prolonged singing also predisposes a person to hoarseness of voice.

  19. Ruparel says:


    I have been struggling with hoarse voice following use of a potent hormonal medication over 2 years ago. I notice my voice is different in the morning and pitch keeps changing constantly. I find that I don’t have a feminine voice anymore. It’s frustrating but I don’t know what I can do to change it or modulate it. Is there anything you can recommend? I am thinking of buying Homeovox by Boiron for a trial. Do you think this product will help?
