Loss Of Voice

Last night here in China I was out doing something I rarely do - karaoke singing. It's hugely popular and even if you can't sing (like most people here who do it), you're expected to have a go.

The strange thing is no one seems to mind if you sound terrible - they still clap and cheer you on.

I only sang 3 songs but they were rock songs and I put plenty of effort into them. This morning I woke barely able to speak. My voice was rough and deep and I had a cough which was probably from the cigar one guy was smoking.

I immediately did several rounds of bellows breaths to clear my lungs. I then took a double dose of a very well known Chinese herbal cough/throat syrup that we always have at home. The bellows plus the syrup worked quickly and well.

This particular syrup is made in Hong Kong and it's available in other countries in Asian supermarkets, Chinatown herb stores and acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinics. It's Chinese name is: Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. Amazon.com has it too and you can read many positive reviews from buyers.

I highly recommend this 100% natural syrup for anyone who has throat/voice problems, like smokers, singers, speakers, etc.

There are other such remedies too as Chinese herbal medicine can treat many kinds of respiratory problems. You can read more here.

Any questions let me know.
