This webinar will focus on how poor diet and lifestyle practises can trigger persistent acid reflux causing heartburn, or more troubling for singers, silent reflux, where the voice becomes increasingly fatigued and fragile with loss of range.
Issues including stress, poor sleep, lazy eating habits, a processed diet and lack of certain nutrients all contribute to this often under-diagnosed and poorly treated condition. Silent reflux inhibits proper and full function of the vocal folds due to excess mucus accumulation.
Stephanie will describe the triggers, the mechanisms and the solutions to this debilitating issue. There will also be plenty of time for questions and answers relating to this issue specifically plus health and nutrition in general.
