Best Herbal medicine for the Treatment of Chronic Laryngitis
Chronic Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx (the voice box). It is a more persistent disorder that produces lingering hoarseness and other voice changes. Usually, it is painless and has no significant sign of infection. The common causes of chronic laryngitis include voice abuse or misuse, smoking, drinking alcohol and gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). In GERD, acidic fluids from the stomach flow backward into the esophagus and throat, thus irritating the larynx. Chronic laryngitis can also be caused by chronic sinusitis with postnasal drip. The people suffering from this disease may have other complaints involving the nose and throat; like sensation of having a lump in the throat, a persistent need to clear the throat, discomfort during swallowing and persistent cough. Work-related exposure to irritating chemicals or dusts mostly leads to chronic laryngitis and other respiratory problems.

Uses of Guggul as Medicine:
The most common symptom of chronic laryngitis is hoarseness and this hoarseness must persist for at least 2-3 weeks. Other symptoms may include a low and raspy voice, a voice that tires easily, chronic cough or postnasal drip etc. The doctor will probably recommend the standard prevention guidelines and may refer the patient to a speech-language pathologist for voice therapy.
If chronic laryngitis is due to GERD, the patients should avoid eating fatty foods, spicy foods and foods that have a high acid content. Antacids too prevent acid reflux and can be useful to the patients. The most important thing is the patients should 'rest their voice'. Ideally, they should not talk at all and if they need to speak, use a low voice. Drinking water and staying hydrated is a great way to soothe the irritation in the throat. Ginger tea is an excellent choice, which is naturally antibacterial. Drying foods and drinks, especially coffee and alcohol should be avoided. Some doctors advice gargling with salt water, vinegar or lemon juice. According to Ayurveda, guggul is considered tridoshic and it balances all three doshas in the body. The three doshas of the body i.e. kapha, pitta and vata represent the foundation of traditional Ayurveda. When all the three doshas are in balance, the result is health and wellness. When one or more are excess or deficient, it represents imbalance or disease. Guggul is reported to stimulate pitta and thus enhances warmth, digestion, circulatory and reproductive processes. It also regulates vata (nerve force) and kapha (fluidic aspects).
Guggul can be given in large doses several times daily for laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia and whooping cough. The gargles of guggul can be used for acute and chronic nasal congestion, chronic laryngitis, chronic bronchitis and tuberculosis.
Guggul is a tree which grows wildly in deserts of Western India, Pakistan and other parts of the world. The resin of this tree is taken and the extract is very useful for 'Vata' pains. It is useful for cleaning up the arteries. It is also useful in natural weight loss and that too naturally without causing any side effects.
