My Anti-Cancer Lifestyle

An anti-cancer lifestyle is not a rigid set of rules to follow, but a safe space to be filled with your favorite ways of nourishing health and discouraging cancer. Since cancer thrives in a too-ordered situation, relax and let chaos give a hand now and then in the execution of your plan. I include all the following elements in my anti-cancer lifestyle. Were I to be diagnosed with cancer, I would continue to do these things in addition to any other remedies I might choose.

Stay in touch with my own daily and seasonal rhythms.

Sleep in total darkness or moonlight; get into the sun daily.

Eat one meal at the same time each day.

Have emotional outlets.

Choose friends who support me and my truth.

Have artistic outlets.

Receive lots of appreciation and approval (a.k.a. love).

Exercise one hour three times a week.

Get a massage once a month or more.

Do my yoga practice once a week or more.

Have sexual outlets.

Take a quiet time of beingness daily.

Make full use of all sources of joy available to me.

Eat a Mediterranean-style diet of mostly organically grown foods including daily use of cabbage family plants, raw and cooked greens, whole grains, beans, sunflower seeds, soy products, olive oil, garlic, seasonal fresh fruit, seaweed, yogurt and cheese, herbal infusions, herbal vinegars, and antioxidant seasonings. Plus, at least four times a month, seafood, nuts, mushrooms, dried fruit, and eggs; and, less than four times a month, meat, alcohol, white sugar, and coffee.

And I avoid: Vitamin/mineral supplements, chlorine, nitrates, tobacco, prescription hormones, TV, white flour, processed foods, and non-organic animal products.

Artist Opens Audio Engineering School

Stephen Devassy, a musical arranger, composer, performer, and educator at his audio engineering school, is well known to mix his music with contemporary and classical styles. His style can be compared as a collage of music across the continents, centuries, and genres. He is also well known as an enchanting stage performer, music arrangement innovator and original composer. Stephens career, which spans more or less 13 years, has given him the chance to arranged, compile and edit music for more than 2000 songs and these were in different languages.

Stephen, who comes from the Palakkad district in Ottapalam, has been showing his talent with the piano since his early adulthood. At this time, he started receiving different opportunities to perform and even work with the best musical artist in India, which include, Zakir Hussain, A.R. Rahman, Hariharan and Amjad Ali Khan to name a few. However, it was not until the last 6 years, when he began performing in Chennai, that he became interested in his vision, to open a professional recording studio and an audio engineering school. His first vision came true when he opened the Musik Lounge Studios in Saligramam. This recording studio is a professional mixing and production studio where artist can record, edit, compile and finish their music. His second vision, the Musik Lounge School of Audio Technology found in Vadapalani, has the latest technology related to audio engineering and production. The school is definitely one of the most updated in the area.

According the Stephen, working in Chennai lets him gain a solid foothold with the Indian film industry, specifically with the music production side. Some of the songs the Malayalam films use are largely made in the Chennai area. Because of the heavy work load the studio has, and the very easy accessibility for performers, Stephen decided to open a school. Enrollees at Stephens audio engineering school are given hands on experience with the music making science. The students also meet professionals and experienced audio engineers. This gives them the change to ask questions about the industry.

According to Stephen, happiness being felt by the listeners is the whole point of music. This happiness can only be achieved if the performer plays what the audience wants to listen to or is expecting to hear. Proper training, whether you are a performer or an audio engineer, is vital since its the only way for you to know if youre making your output correctly and if the people will like it.
