HOW DOES IT WORK?
When sprayed orally or nasally into the throat, it delivers moisture to the dry spots and also adjusts the thickness and flow of the mucus in the sinuses and the passageways of the nose and throat. The nose and throat not only moisturize incoming air but they also serve as filtering mechanisms. Tiny hairs in the nose called cilia are constantly moving back and forth. They sweep away particulate matter – such as dust, smoke or other pollutants – so it can't enter the lungs. A moist passageway, lined with sticky mucus, is a much more efficient filter than a dry one devoid of mucus. Entertainer's Secret is to dry throat and hoarse voice what lip balms are for chapped lips or what lotions is for dry skin or chapped hands. It is not a medication or a "cure" but it can help relieve throat and voice problems when dryness is a contributing factor.
Let's look at some evidence:
1. A dry larynx is pictured on the right. The photo below it is the same subject's larynx after he sprayed Entertainer's Secret. A professional's trained eye can see that the bottom larynx is more elongated and relaxed, but anyone, professional or not, can see more white spots on bottom larynx. These spots are reflections of light (much like the reflection of street lights on the road on a rainy night) that are picked up by the fiberoptic camera. The moisture is from the Entertainer's Secret throat relief spray and it is sticking to the surface of the vocal folds and keeping them moist.
2. Professionals also use specialized computer programs which generate spectogram wave forms. A subject speaks or sings into a microphone hooked up to software which produces a line on the screen. The green line is before spraying; the blue one, same person, is after spraying. Note the wide fluctuations and jagged pattern on the green line. In somewhat oversimplified terms, the more jagged the line appears, the rougher the voice sounds. (Photos and graphs courtesy of Richard Quisling, MD, of Nashville, TN)
