Svarabheda (स्वरभेद) refers to “hoarseness” according to the fifth volume of the Rasajalanidhi (chapter 5). Accordingly, “Svarabheda (hoarseness) is due to the sound-carrying passages being choked with the abnormal excess of vayu, etc. owing to any one or some of these causes:—(1) speaking loudly, (2) taking of poison, (3) reading loudly and (4) physical shock received at the throat”.

Hoarseness (svarabheda) is of six different kinds, according as it may be due to (a) vayu, (b) pitta (c) kapha, (d) a combination of the three, (e) excess of fat, and (f) consumption”.
