MCA is doing A-OK.

Three months after disclosing his cancer diagnosis and shelving his band's summer tour, Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch says he's on the road to recovery after receiving treatment from Tibetan specialists.

"I'm feeling healthy, strong and hopeful that I've beaten this thing, but of course time will tell," the 45-year-old Yauch writes on the Beasties' mailing list. "[I] just got back from Dharamsala, India. Went over there to see some Tibetan doctors." Yauch adds that he's taking Tibetan medicine and has switched to a vegan/organic diet.

The musician is now "enjoying a little downtime in Massachusetts, taking walks in the woods and hanging out with the family...and just laying low."

As for Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1, the band's album originally slated for September but delayed due to his cancer treatment, Yauch says he expects it to drop in the first half of 2010.
