Cornel Wilczek

Cornel Wilczek is an Australian award winning screen composer and music producer. He is driven by experimentation and the desire to find something new in music.

Cornel runs and owns recording studio in South Melbourne, Australia. It is a high-end, acoustically designed space that facilitates creative development where he has produced many musical artworks.

Some people find it hard at the best of times to find their creativity or keep up producing work at a high quality level. Imagine doing it with a condition that makes you feel like your body is on fire.

In this episode we have a chat with Cornel about how he handles his auto-immune condition – Ankylosing spondylitis and lives his life to its fullest and what happens between his plans that has been the most important factor.

Some little pearls from our chat:

The importance of movement

Mixing up your movement to help keeping the inflammation at bay

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Even fun things like skipping, trampolining and hula hooping.

Even though it sounds counterintuitive when flared up and all Cornel wanted to was rest. The only thing that would help his inflammation was to move.

Never give up on trying to make yourself feel better

Doesn’t mean you need to find that river bullet.

Gut health

Finding what foods would flare up his condition was also key to helping

Check out episode two on how food can help your immune system
