WHY DOES MY THROAT GET DRY AND MY VOICE GET HOARSE?

We all have occasions when we develop a dry, sore scratchy throat and a hoarse, tired voice - we call it laryngitis.   This is not always a correct diagnostic term, but it is descriptive -  possibly because tissues in the larynx or vocal apparatus are inflammed- sound is distorted.   Often it's caused by excessive vocalizing: too much speaking, singing, cheering at games or concerts, shouting, etc. Entertainer's Secret Throat Spray- Soothe your throat and smooth your voice.

Inhaled air almost always is drier than the body would prefer because heating in cold weather as well as conditioning in hot weather removes moisture.  When this dry air flows through the throat's passageways, its mucosal cover loses moisture via evaporation.  As a consequence, this coating or lining becomes too viscous to flow properly and it cannot keep the underlying sensitive membranes moist.   These surfaces can become dehydrated even if one is not doing an unusual amount of talking or singing or yelling.

Other reasons: maybe the dry irritated throat is due to an unfavorable atmosphere like smoke or dust, or maybe it's an after-effect from a cold or cough or the result of surgery or therapy.  Allergies can cause the mucus to form a thick and congested mass.  Whatever the cause, the throat feels uncomfortable and, because a dry vocal fold does not vibrate like a moist one, vocal quality is impaired.

WHY DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT?

A dry throat is uncomfortable and a persistently dry throat is more susceptible to inflammation and infection - problems which nobody needs.  A hoarse voice handicaps our ability to perform our job or participate in a favorite activity.  It is annoying to the person doing the vocalizing and equally irritating and distracting to the listener.

A few of us, radio announcers and opera singers, for example, have jobs that absolutely demand one's very best voice all the time.   However, a far greater number of us are involved in everyday activities that require a degree of vocal quality, e.g. conversing, explaining, teaching, presenting, or selling - if we want to optimize our opportunity to communicate.  A scratchy hoarse voice is frustrating to both parties. The audience, whether it is one person or an auditorium full, is short-changed, receiving less than the speaker or singer is capable of delivering.

WHY NOT JUST DRINK WATER?

Drinking lots of water is good, a healthy and a smart idea for many reasons.  Before extended periods of vocalizing one should drink a lot of water.  But the water passes through the esophagus into the digestive system and must get into the circulatory system before it can be delivered to specific dehydrated areas such as the throat or larynx.  Very little ingested water comes into direct contact with these dehydrated surfaces.  Frequent, often inconvenient bathroom breaks become necessary.  Moreover, even with copious fluid intake to achieve systemic hydration, the body's mucous-secreting glands often just can't produce enough replacement moisturizing materials quickly enough to keep up with the increased need.

WHAT ABOUT OTHER BEVERAGES?

Some people find fruit juices and other water-based fluids a better tasting alternative, but many drinks are counter- productive.  For example, alcohol and caffeine both exert a drying effect; paradoxically, the more one drinks the dryer the local membranes and total system becomes.   Even sugar or acid (e.g. carbonation or citric acid) in drinks reduces the effectiveness of  these beverages as humidifiers and makes them less efficient than plain water.

WILL IT HELP MY ALLERGIES / SINUSES?

Allergy and sinus complaints often involve congestion and discomfort because of very thick mucus.  Spraying Entertainer's Secret helps to thin out or make this material less viscous. This lets the mucus flow as it should which keeps the underlying membranes moist and healthy.

Although Entertainer's Secret Throat Relief is not a specific remedy for these problems, it can reduce the symptoms of discomfort.

WHO USES ENTERTAINER'S SECRET?

A great number of household names from the performing arts from pop music to country & western to gospel to opera and Broadway Stage and TV actors - have found Entertainer's Secret beneficial.  Photos from satisfied purchasers such as Jon BonJovi, Lyle Lovett, Jerry Lewis, Glen Close, Alan Campbell, Tom Petty, Debbie Gibson, Wynonna Judd, and many others adorn our walls.  

I'M NOT AN ENTERTAINER; WHY SHOULD I BE INTERESTED?

While we are flattered to number many famous people among our customers, we are equally pleased that it has been helpful to hundreds of teachers of many different subjects at every academic level, choir members, salespersons, members of the clergy, and business and professional people all around the world.  Anybody who relies on their voice for work or fun should have a bottle in their medicine chest, supply cabinet, briefcase, car or desk alongside other personal care products.  It's a very inexpensive way to insure your very best vocal quality.  At one point it was a "secret" for people in the entertainment field; no more!  

WILL IT MAKE ME BETTER IN MY JOB?

It surely can't hurt.  An unpleasant voice is rarely an occupational advantage, whatever one does.  Discomfort seldom improves performance.
