If a nagging cold or screaming match has rendered you mute, these tips will have you talking up a storm in no time.

Step 1: Boost immune system
Boost your immune system with vitamin C and zinc lozenges to help fight infection in your throat and reclaim your voice.

Eat something before taking zinc as it can cause nausea when taken on an empty stomach.

Step 2: Rest your voice
Rest your voice and avoid speaking and breathing in any harsh containments, such as smoke, especially if you’re sick.

Avoid whispering as it strains the vocal chords almost as much as shouting.

Step 3: Drink lots of fluids
Drink lots of fluids, preferably water, to stay hydrated. Try lemon or ginger tea with honey, which is naturally antibacterial.

Step 4: Skip certain foods
Skip fatty, salty, and spicy foods as well as chocolate and alcohol as these can irritate your throat and lead to acid reflux and cause laryngitis.

Step 5: Take hot shower
Take a hot shower to soothe the inflammation with some steam, or lay over a bowl of steaming water with a towel placed over your head.

Step 6: See a doctor
See a doctor if the symptoms or pain worsen, or if your voice doesn’t return within a few weeks.
