Keeping fit and healthy from head to toe – Voice, throat, nose, mouth, neck
Today this body region is especially susceptible to exercise and looking after it. The highlighted zone today are the voice, nose, mouth, neck, and throat.
This region is particularly important if you are a public speaker, teacher, presenter, or anybody else working with their voice.
Gargling with lukewarm sage tea (2 bags for a cup of tea, cool to as warm as you can tolerate) can help to keep your voice in good shape. It is important that you don’t swallow the warm sage tea, but spit it out. This will get rid of mucus and toxins and bring back the voice if you are hoarse or lost your voice altogether. It can also be used as a preventative measure.
Oil pulling: For this method take a tablespoon full of coconut oil or any other good quality oil and keep it in your mouth for about 2 minutes. Move it around your mouth, and squish it through your teeth to capture all kinds of bacteria. Then spit it out. This is a very old preventative method and you can easily incorporate it into your daily morning routine whilst getting dressed.
Release tension in the neck: Many people hold a lot of tension in the neck. Don’t wait until you are very rigid, prevent this with relaxing exercises and an occasional massage.
