For the last year, I’ve had a non-cancerous polyp on my vocal cords. For the previous three months, I’ve tried a few homoeopathic remedies, but nothing has changed. Can you help me recover my voice?

A polyp is a benign growth that protrudes from a mucous membrane. Voice polyps are polyps that develop above the vocal cords. Nodules on the vocal cords disrupt normal voice function, resulting in a harsh, breathy, or weak voice.

I understand you have been taking homoeopathic medicine for the last three months but have not seen any significant results. In homoeopathy, the correct choice and resulting relief is a matter of experience and sound judgement on the part of the Homoeopathic doctor. Not only can homoeopathy aid in the resolution of pre-existing nodules, but it also aids in the prevention of recurrence of the vocal polyp. The timely use of Homoeopathic medicine can assist to prevent surgery.

Health Tips
Tobacco and alcohol should be avoided, as should detrimental vocal behaviours such as throat clearing, screaming, speaking over background noise, and heavy weeping. Voice therapy can help minimise pressure on the voice, and it is important to address allergies and throat infections if you have them.
