Laryngitis will often go away on its own, but there are several natural ways you can help relieve discomfort. Breathing moist air from a humidifier or hot shower, sucking a lozenge, or gargling with a salt solution can help to soothe the throat. Also make sure to drink fluids and avoid smoking, decongestants, alcohol, and caffeine. It may be tempting to whisper, but this can damage your voice even further than normal talking-try not to do either.
