A Healthy Voice

Here's how to help prevent hoarseness, according to Northwestern University:

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Quit smoking, and avoid secondhand smoke.

  • If you must talk loudly or yell, try to keep it brief.

  • If you must whisper, also keep it brief. Whispering is as bad for your voice as talking loudly.

  • Keep alcohol and caffeine consumption to a minimum.

  • Avoid spicy foods.
