Throat Spray (Moisturizing)

2 posts in this topic

Any singers out there? Has anyone used SIngers Saving Grace spray for dry, irritated throat? Or, another one I found (for speakers, singers, etc.) is called Entertainers Secret? While both list ingredients, they have "natural" items that are vague.

Trying to avoid numbing products like Chloraseptic, which don't really address dry throat anyway (made for sore throat).

Tried Biotene, which you don't swallow, and is good for dry mouth, but it doesn't address the irritated/dry throat and vocal chords from singing.

Appreciate info if anyone's had good results with any above and are assured they are gluten free.

Never tried either one. I know I was using Biotene back before my diagnosis and with my Sjogren's staying hydrated for singing was always an issue. I was recording a number of arias today in a very hot setting and finally was defeated by dehydration. Strange since having gone gluten-free and paleo have had virtually no problems with vocal endurance due to vocal folds drying out even though I drink much less water now. I hit the proverbial wall today, though, and it wasn't until after I fed the voice and got out of the ridiculous heat that I get my legs back under me. I know I used to also rely on Guifeneisin in prescription strength at times but (before I knew why) my DX for celiac it would end up making things much, much worse.. it was a trick I learned from another singer but I always paid a brutal price for taking it as it would make my RA unbearable so I learned to use rest and hydration and stay away from any meds if at all possible. Oh, another remedy that some of my friends would use was slippery elm. Never did much for me.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
