Advice by a homeopathic doctor :

"I feel that you should drink 2 glasses of warm water in the morning everyday on waking up. Do not whisper, or talk excessively. Talk only when necessary and be to the point. You should conserve your energy and voice and give it rest. Do not shout or overstrain your voice. Yogic asanaa (postures) and breathing exercises(pranayam) and certain kriyas ensure that the respiratory tract is purified and its capacity is enhanced; Although these techniques have to be learnt under the guidance of a yoga teacher and have to be practiced everyday. Posture, energy and state of mind influences the voice."
