Cured of Spasmodic Dysphonia by DVR

Dear Doctor Cooper, 

Thank you for calling me this morning. As we discussed on the phone, I am now sending you this brief summary of my experience with the totally debilitating condition called Spasmodic Dysphonia and the TOTAL HEALING of my voice to a point where it is now absolutely, totally normal.


– July 19, 1998

Back in 1978 I began to develop voice problems. It's a pretty horrifying feeling when you lose your voice and don't know that you're ever going to regain that voice again. It's very difficult. Most of the time I had to rely on a pencil and paper because the people that I was trying to communicate with weren't understanding me. I was trying my best to utter some words and just couldn't. A lot of times I would just try whispering the words out because I couldn't speak.

Dear Mort,

I am writing this letter to express my gratitude for the invaluable help you have given me.

I had been a lifelong stutterer until the age of 31. I had received speech therapy in grammar school and high school consisting largely of relaxation exercises—all of which did me no good at all.

How many doctors does it take to cure a sore throat? (2-year update)

Several years ago I experienced a "sore throat" that lasted for weeks. When I went to see my family physician (Dr. 1), he prescribed antibiotics. After several visits and multiple prescriptions with no relief, he referred me to an ear, nose and throat specialist. The ENT (Dr. 2) examined me and proclaimed that I had a granuloma the good news was that it was not cancerous but he needed to perform surgery to remove it.

14-Year Update

Dear Dr. Cooper:

You did a great job of curing Zel's spasmodic dysphonia. This has been a very difficult start of a new school year for her - with as many as thirty-eight children in her kindergarten class until they formed a new class. Although she came home dead tired, her voice has held up nicely.

I consider it a miracle in my life, and an answer to my prayers, that I found Dr. Cooper. His methods are completely natural and non-invasive, and do not involve drugs, toxins, or surgery. I highly recommend his Direct Voice Rehabilitation, which uses simple techniques which comprise a type of physical therapy to re-train sufferers of voice disorders in the correct usage of muscles involved in speech production.

8-Year Update

Prior to April 25, 1992, I already knew of the excellence of Dr. Morton Cooper's non-invasive treatments for spasmodic dysphonia because it had been proven to me by reading his two books, some of the papers he has published over the years and watching an amazing video tape featuring some of the patients he has cured, giving their testimonials. I had also listened to his audio tape. But at the meeting of the Marin Support Group for Spasmodic Dysphonia, all of my previous beliefs in the validity of Dr. Cooper's exercises were confirmed with absolutely no room left for doubt.

About four years ago (1991), a simple case of the flu set off a condition that became an extremely lifealtering situation. What seemed like simple laryngitis just did not go away. Since I am not a writer, it is very difficult for me to convey the frustration I felt while this was going on.

My Botox Shot

Gosh! It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting in the waiting room at a famous teaching hospital waiting for my first Botox shot.

After months of worrying about losing my voice permanently as it became more and more hoarse and strangulated, I decided to take the advice of a couple of ENT's I had seen and go to yet another ENT who specialized in treating the incurable dystonia known as Spasmodic Dysphonia. With my asymptomatic Acid Reflux kept firmly in check by months of Prilosec and/or Nexium, I felt ready for the next step in the search for an effective and safe treatment for the symptoms of my incurable illness.

In June 2007, I woke up one morning with a sharp pain in my lower throat. I had come down with some type of cold I think, but after a week, all other symptoms disappeared except for the pain in my throat. This made it very difficult and painful for me to both speak and sing, which are required for my vocation as a musician and pastor.
