Re: Haven't sang in years...
In the slippery elm department, I got some sample lozenges at the music industry trade show that was in town last summer. Thayer's is the brand and they come in cherry and orange as well as original flavor. It is SO freaky to feel the way it clears up your throat of all the mucus. It happens quite quickly. I like them because they don't taste like slippery elm if you get the flavors. Unfortunately, I've been using the samples, portioning them out like little nuggets of gold so I don't know where to get them locally.. It says on the back that you can get them at health food stores and I'd also assume music stores as singers were their target audience. Good luck and feel better soon!
