Believe it or not, asthma disorder could be very much connected to a voice disorder, due to improper breathing.
If the asthma sufferer is not aware of his/her breathing patterns, it could very easily effect their voice, as the throat, at the time, becomes very dry, and also the use of the medicated puffers will dry out one’s throat in no time.
One way to help the asthma sufferers with their asthma disorder and, if needed, their damaged voice, is (first of all) to teach them proper breathing, which will immensely help the sufferers with asthma symptoms during the attacks; and concurrently, due to the lift of voice off of the lower and upper respiratory system, the voice healing will be enhanced by the virtue fact that it had gotten removed from the infected area.
Now let’s talk about breathing exercises:
I usually do not work with clients on just breathing; it always connected to the speaking/singing sounds, syllables and vowels.
The objective here is to employ three components of the breathing mechanism such as:
- Lower abdomen – for the support of the height of the sound.
- Upper diaphragm – for the support of the width (body of the sound)
- Mouth breath – which has to be taken very quickly, passing by all of the respiratory anatomy and becoming placed underneath of the sound, traveling on a parallel track with it and propelling the sound forward.
Once the above is achieved, the respiratory cavities are freed; so is the vocal anatomy, which open up a space for the natural herbal and homeopathic remedies to be applied and act to its’ fullest capacity.
That too plays an essential role in the asthma patient’s recovery.
So, with that said, we could “kill two birds with one stone”. The asthma is treated and could be actually cured; and the voice, concurrently, will also improve and recover dramatically!
In this case.., could you ask for anything more?
