Voice and Vocal Disorders Treatment Post Voice/Vocal Restoration and Coaching Mild Voice/Vocal Diseases Cure
We treat and cure most vocaldiseases and disorders. Most disorders are treatable and some of them are even
curable. With our Vocal Science Trademarked technique and employment of the,
specifically selected, natural herbal and homeopathic remedies, we are able to
achieve results like no other!
it is done:
The Vocal Science technique has
been developed by the world renowned vocal coach, consultant and non-surgical
voice repair specialist, Diana Yampolsky.
By utilizing the components of the
Vocal Science method, Diana became capable to save the damaged vocal anatomy
and restore the speaking and/or singing voice back to normal and beyond.
Using, (developed by Diana), speech
and singing exercises, coupled with the certain body movements, she became
capable of achieving the voice lift off of the vocal box and off of the vocal
The voice, now got restructured to
the different set of muscles, (facial cavities) and thus, get amplified 4 to 5
times its original volume. So for those who are suffering with low voiceprojection due to vocal injury, it is a savior. But the condition of it is that
those facial cavities must work in full conjunction and coordination with the
lower and upper abdominal muscles.
The latter is very important, as
the lower abdominal muscles are responsible for the height of the sound which
after the lift of the voice should be traveling 360 degrees above the person’s
actual height.The upper diaphragm
muscles, (rib cage), responsible for the width, (body of the sound). As the
sound travels in a circular direction (as any physical material body does)
relatively, respectively and prospectively to the height and the width of the
body, the circumference of the circle must be totally fulfilled.
Otherwise, the sound will be “tiny
and skinny” and thus, no “fullness” of the voice will come out on the surface
and thus, the projection of the full, healthy voice will be diminished.
we treat and cure voice and vocal disorders:
We advocate specially selected,
natural herbs and remedies, which are designed to strengthen the vocal box and
vocal cords in particular.
They also aid to the cleanliness of
the overall vocal anatomy. They help to get rid of all of the impurities like
gastric acid and mucus. They also help to lubricate the vocal cords and larynx
and keep the “vocal machine strong, oiled and lubed”, so to speak.
Once the voice is lifted,
structured, placed and projected, those natural herbs and remedies become
double effective, as now, the voice is not mixed in with the vocal anatomy and
allows the space (within the vocal anatomy) for the healing and cure.
For the certain and some specific
voice/vocal disorders, we also use homeopathic remedies, especially for the
vocal diseases which are of viral nature; such as polyps and specific types of
note: Some vocal disorders can be vastly improved with the Vocal
Science™ technique and natural herbal and homeopathic treatment, but may not
necessarily be cured.
The latter include severe forms of spasmodic dysphonia, some forms of complete vocal paralysis and some severe forms of
throat cancer, especially if the patient has undergone numerous radiation
After the non-surgical voice repair
and voice/vocal treatment is complete, the voice/vocal coaching begins. The
voice repair client then becomes a voice/vocal student and learns how to speak/sing
professionally not only complying with the standards of professional speaking
/singing, but also assuring the safety and unlimited length of their
More and more, we are hearing about well-known
artists losing their voices, cancelling their shows and tours and undergoing
Nevertheless, the amateur singers lose their voices
in an everyday basis as well, we just don’t hear about it as much.
And lastly speakers: They are caught completely by
surprise when their speaking voice seizes on them “out of the blue” or, at
least, they think so. In reality, the voice loss is always premeditated. The
worse it is for speakers, as they’re completely not expecting anything like
that and the lost voice is getting them, the least to say, in shock.
The fact is that they do not realize that the voice
is a vulnerable organ and could break very easily. Singers are, by far, more
aware about it and those who proceed with caution, so to speak, are able to
keep their voice healthy and lengthy for the rest of their lives.
So what about those who don’t know about voice
preservation? We have the answer for them.
The Vocal Science technique, which we advocate,
suggests you to use the different set of muscles (which are your facial
muscles), instead of the vocal box muscles.
That is where the voice (as a muscle) with the
support of the abdominal muscles will get in and get secured within those
cavities. Then with the proper breathing control, (also supported by the
abdominal muscles), the sound gets projected to its aimed destination.
So, at that point, the mission is accomplished, as
the wholesome mechanism, which allows the voice to work in its fullest capacity
possible and with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy, has been instilled in
the human muscles and psyche.
If you can, you will be able to use your voice, by design, and think on a
parallel track and in synchronicity with your speaking or singing.
this is an invaluable skill to have.
fact is that the majority of people do not possess that skill, as they are
simply out-of-balance and out of alignment. Some of them think long and hard
before producing the speaking or singing sounds and thus, evidently, “missing
others, opposite; they speak and sing without boarders and think, if at all,
after the fact.
human being who is, in fact, in balance, is most likely able to think and act
on a parallel track, which means that his/her subconscious mind and conscious
mind are aligned and thus, work on a parallel track with each other.
subconscious mind is responsible for the thinking and the conscious mind plays
the role of the driving force. If they are in agreement with each other, the
voice should come out as the outcome of the above equation.
the synchronicity between the subconscious and conscious mind is disrupted, the
person will not be able to produce any sound upon design and will get stagnated
with their thinking and no action, or with the action, which is not supported
by any structural thinking.
this case, the singer most likely will be going out of tune and out of timing
and, no doubts, sooner or later, will end up with some kind of voice disorder.
regular speaking person, who is very loud in an everyday basis, screaming and
shouting at all given times and without boarders, also will end up with some
kind of voice damage down the road. As these people have no understanding of
any kind that their voice is also one of their organs and if abused, it will
lose its functionality, just like a liver will give up its functions for the
conclude – The balance is everything, and so is the knowledge. Stop yelling and screaming before, during and
after the voice repair work.
in moderation and be always on guard that the voice is a fragile human organ
and could snap and become damaged at any given time.

I have just recently returned from my quick and
somewhat short, but very impactful, trip from London.
Within only a little bit more than a week’s period
of time, I was able to provide my four UK clients with my voice repair services;
speaking & singing. All of them were unique in their own way and, nevertheless,
all of them were different. However, one thing they had in common is that they
were extremely smart and sharp, took directions really well and complied with
the procedures, introduced to them, to a tee.
This whole process, for me, was extremely heart rejuvenating,
as here in Canada & in North America in general, for some reason, people
who come to obtain my services are, by far, not as alert, are taking directions
much slower and mainly, after the fact, not compliant with the aftermath protocol.
For example: speech repair clients, for some
reason, seem to be unable to understand that after they complete their voice
repair course and treatment, they cannot begin to “speak without boarders”. The
minute they acquire their speaking voice back, not even a ‘Russian Tank’ would
be able to stop them.
Understandably, they were deprived of the regular
communication due to their voice issues. However, they have to understand that
they have just left a “vocal rehab” in a manner of speaking, and thus cannot
begin right away “binging” on their colloquial speaking.
However, that, unfortunately, happened to one of
my serious voice repair clients in the UK as well, who luckily, is in complete
understanding of what had happened, and she also understands that, for the
serious vocal anatomy problem like she has had, she would need a lot more hours
of instruction, coupled with the enhanced natural treatment. That said, I will
be heading out back to the UK to help her (and others) further in a few weeks.
Then there was a voice repair client who used to
be a singer in his country, and won numerous of competitions in his early 20s. Not
being aware of any vocal technique and just possessing a natural talent, he
practiced, practiced and practiced…
One day, right before appearing on National Television,
his voice “snapped” and he was no longer able to reach the high notes which he
was famous for. He had already lined up some producers who were interested in
prospering his professional career. In just seconds, his dream was shattered for
the next 20 years forward. Of course, with time, he buried his frustration and disappointment,
but the dream to become a well-known professional singer is still alive within
him. Nevertheless, he went to numerous doctors who conducted numerous of
scopes, but no one seemed to be able to help him. While with me in a session,
he offered me a recent picture of his internal vocal anatomy.
I was shocked, as his whole pharyngeal area was
blown out of proportion on both sides!
The doctor, however, commented that his vocal
cords are good and his pharyngeal area is “slightly bowed”…? So in spite of the
obvious health and vocal problems, the ENT specialist recommended the vocal
coaching, which supposedly would help my client to restore his singing voice!!!
My doomed student, first and foremost, needs to
work on his health and his vocal anatomy health. Those bowed, out of proportion
pharyngeal glands, possessing tons of toxins within them. It is just like a
ticking time bomb, which could explode at any given time and could also easily cause
substantial bodily harm.
As per usual, I had administered the natural
herbal treatment, which plays an essential part in one’s healing. The “proof
was in the pudding”. Those herbs, (which also have medicinal power) almost in
an instant, set off a body reaction.
My student first started to cough and then,
shortly after, acquired flue like symptoms.
To my dismay, he clued in momentarily to what’s
going on and started exclaiming that he finally felt a movement in his throat
and in his chest which he was wishing to feel for the last 20-somewhat years. To
his very big credit, he understood that in order to conquer his physical and
vocal problem, something like this has to happen, and he embraced it with
Way to go Man!
Then I had a voice repair client who flew to me
from Scotland. That was quite a sad story, as this beautiful human being
acquired what is called Spasmodic Dysphonia. This very nice woman is a teacher
in a public school. Nevertheless, her vocal/neurological condition prevented her
from working for some time.
However, obtaining five official hours (and all
together six, and a bit, unofficial hours), she was able to improve conducting
her voice in a more proper fashion which, in turn, had helped her to experience
reduced amount of spasms. Obviously, either five or six hours could not be
enough to conquer such a complicated voice disorder. Hopefully in the future, this
wonderful human being will be able to pair up with me again for some much more
in-depth instruction and natural treatment.
And lastly, about eight month ago, when I was last
in London attending to a very beautiful and promising opera singer (former
voice repair client), I also momentarily had attended to another in her mid-30s
woman, who at the time, due to misuse of her speaking and singing voice, had a
weak, scratchy, airy and somewhat hoarse voice.
She only took 2 hours of instruction in 2014.
When she came to my hotel room this time, and only
for an hour and fifteen minutes, I could not recognize her voice, as she
sounded completely normal, clear and amplified. I have asked her if she had
attended any speech lessons, or anything like this related to the voice issue,
her response was that she attempted to embark on a couple of singing lessons.
However, she said that she was unable to locate
her teacher any further. So, if that is not a miracle, then what is? I was
almost shocked to hear her speaking and as well as by her new looks (loss of
weight, and overall rejuvenation)!
Way to go Girl!
Her determination to restore her voice and to work
on her physical appearance is, indeed, the best example for any human being.
That’s all for now.
Let’s see what my next up-coming trip to the UK
will have in store for me. I will definitely make sure to share it with my
