How to clear
your throat
by Brett Manning
Clearing My Throat?

Q:  What's the proper way to clear my throat?

A:  Some say that you should never clear your throat, but excess mucous inhibits free vocal cord
coordination.  The trick is to find a way to clear your throat without irritating it.  Do a gentle
"whispered cough" (without tone) and then swallow.  Repeat.  If this doesn't work, you need to deal
with the excess mucous production.  Squeeze a 1/4 of a lemon in a tall glass of water and sip over
about 20 minutes.  This should cut through a lot of the excess mucous.  Furthermore, watch your
dairy intake... especially cheese.  You should never eat it on the day of a performance!
