My brain on vocal science

I am doing an intensive research study program this summer in Denver.  I’m learning more than I ever thought I needed to know about how the voice works.  Yesterday was an anatomy crash course which sent me to Amazon to purchase anatomy coloring books.  Yes, I did say COLORING books.  Today was a crash course on biomechanics – ya know, just enough to really scramble my noodle.  Newton’s Laws and all that.

I know that eventually there will be some neat way to apply what I’m learning about the hard sciences even to my advocacy work.  I’ll share my ruminations as they attack me in my dreams.  Currently I’m still considering sending a pipe bomb to one of my old doctoral professors.  (No, not really!)  I’m disgusted that I have a terminal degree (a doctorate for chrissakes!) and don’t already know 1/8 of the material I’ve encountered in the last two days of class.

  1. Okay, my comment doesn’t have to do with this post but I’ve been reading your blog and about your struggles with miscarriages. I’m sure you have already tried this but in case you haven’t, I’d like to suggest that you take an iodine test. You can buy iodine tincture at any pharmacy or even Walmart for .99-2.00. You paint a 2 inch square of iodine on your upper inner arm and let it dry. It should stay the same darkness for 24 hours. If it fades at all it means that your body is deficient in iodine, the nutrient that your thyroid needs to function properly, and to maintain a pregnancy. My midwife asked me a series of questions (which I answered mostly yes to) and then did this iodine test. I am now on some supplements to work on healing my thyroid. If you would like me to email you the questions and the other info I have, just email me and let me know. I would be happy to get it to you. Again, you may have already explored this route but it was encouraging for me to realize my symptoms weren’t just in my head and it doesn’t cost much to explore this possibility.

  2. Angie, I did e-mail you. Wanted to thank you for mentioning this. Iodine deficiency has crossed my mind, especially since the discussion takes place on a natural healing board I read.

    =) Kimberly
