According to Made Man, acidic beverages, such as a vinegar and lemon concoction, can cause acid reflux and aggravate the vocal cords if consumed while straining the voice. This technique calls for consuming the acidic beverage followed by lying down so that your head hangs lower than your belly, inducing acid reflux, and screaming loudly for several minutes.
3 Strained Singing
Cycling singing in a loud voice and then in a strained whisper for more than 20 minutes causes voice stress and loss. To maintain the loss of your voice, repeat this technique as often as you can at five- to 10-minute intervals.
4 Sleep With Your Mouth Open
Although sleeping with your mouth open can feel awkward, it dries out the vocal cords and causes voice loss. To maintain the effect from this approach, limit the amount of liquids you consume throughout the day.
