Title: Superior Vocal Health
Author: David Aaron Katz
Review: Interesting little book on what to do when you have to sing and are feeling sick! David gives recipes for making teas and soups out of natural herbs to help restore the body back to optimal health before a performance. David is a voice professional which means his whole life revolves around being able to keep his vocal cords in prime condition or he doesn’t work. Since everyone will become ill at one time or another and it seems that when you are a singer it always happens right before a performance, David has given some wonderful ideas for good vocal health and last minute helps for sore throats, stuffed up heads and filled sinuses.
I have never really been into herbal medicine but after reading this book I see no reason not to at least try some of the things that he recommends. He speaks of formulas of herbs to mix to gain maximum results (he also sells his own line of herbal formulas for voice health).
In the book he suggests and explains about different herbs, going into detail about what each herb does and how it helps with throat, sinus and chest congestion. This is a great little book and I recommend it to anyone interested in a natural way of helping with congestion and the flus that hit us all in the winter. This book is not a nail biter by any means, although I am sure there is a herb cure for that also, but it lives up to what it is touted to be.
Thank you Eileen for this review
