Holidays tend to be a time of overindulgence. Rich foods and “one-too-many” cocktails can cause acid reflux, and lead to vocal problems. When acid rises up from the stomach, it can land in the voice box, often directly onto the vocal cords themselves.
This can cause swelling of the vocal cords, making it difficult for the cords to close properly, which leads to associated problems such as breathiness, raspiness, or hoarseness.
