This article from the University of Texas Health Science Center talks about 'Professional Voice Users,' which includes anyone who uses his or her voice for work (and really, that's most everyone!). While there is some very good information in this article about mucous, GERD, and overuse, the article is also heavy on pharmaceutical 'fixes,' which I don't necessarily advocate. After reading the University of Texas article, please see my blog entry of 9/28/13 - 'Reflux May Be Damaging Your Voice,' for some alternative, holistic remedies for vocal issues for more natural remedies!
