Taking Care of YOUR VOICE the Instrument of Your Temple

by Mark A. Williams, M.D., Ph.D.

Tip: Drink at least eight glasses (8 oz. each) of water each day.
This is perhaps the most basic of instructions for improving and maintaining good voice health. For the vocal cords to vibrate rhytmically and regularly, they have to be well lubricated. When singers are dehydrated, the vocal cords also become dehydrated, thinner and do not vibrate as efficiently. Juices, sodas and other drinks are no substitute plain water -- from the tap or a bottle.
