Olivia Newton-John says she feels ‘very good’ since cancer diagnosis

Olivia Newton-John has given an update on her health as she continues to live with cancer.

The Aussie superstar told Closer magazine this week she feels “very good” and credits her husband, John Easterling, for helping her manage the pain. 

“There are a lot of herbs that I take,” Newton-John told the UK magazine. “And over the last 10 years, I’ve used cannabis. My husband makes me tinctures that help me immensely with pain, inflammation, sleep and anxiety. I’d like to research all that and find out what else is going on because I feel good.”

In the interview, the 72-year-old also outlined her diet that was inspired by her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi. 

“I’ve also been eating vegan because my daughter was visiting me and she’s a vegan,” Newton-John added. “I feel very good. I try to do something for myself every day that I love, like seeing my horses or sitting in the garden.”

The Grease star was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. She was diagnosed for the second time in 2013 when the cancer returned and spread to her shoulder. The actress once again overcame the illness but was hit with more bad news in 2017 when she was told it had metastasised and spread to her bones.

But despite being diagnosed with cancer three times in as many decades, the Aussie star remains hopeful.

“I’m so lucky to still be doing all these things,” she told People magazine back in February. “I don’t think I imagined living this long! I feel very blessed.

“I’m very lucky to be married to a wonderful man who is a plant medicine man, and he has great knowledge. Now he’s growing medicinal cannabis for me, and it just has been wonderful. It helps me in every area.”
