Olivia Newton John has revealed her brave approach to cancer and explained how she would prefer to become friends with her body rather than argue with it.
The Grease star, 71, was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in 2017 after having previously conquered the disease twice, in 1992 and 2013.
The English-born actress admitted that she did not like the expression & # 39; fighting the disease & # 39; and told how she decided to remain calm and ask the cancer to leave.
Olivia, an outspoken advocate for the use of medicinal cannabis, also revealed that her 11-year-old husband John Easterling is giving her a herbal remedy that has helped her through the pain.
Olivia Newton John, who was seen at her auction in California this month, has revealed her brave approach to cancer and explained how she would prefer to become friends with her body than fight with it.
Speak against The Telegraph, she said: I have never seen cancer as a fight or a fight. Over the decades I have actually made a friendship with it – and now I am asking to leave.
& # 39; Because instead of arguing with my body, I'd rather stay calm and thank you for everything it did for me. & # 39;
She discussed the use of medicinal marijuana and said: “The tinctures really help. No one has ever died of cannabis, but opiates kill people every day. & # 39;

Olivia also discussed her fantastic relationship with her daughter Chloe, 33, whom she raised with her first husband Matt Lattanzi and told how their relationship has become even closer since the diagnosis.
Stage 4 breast cancer means that the cancer has spread or spread to other parts of the body, away from the breast tissue.
Usually the disease will spread to the bones, liver and lungs. But it can also spread to the brain or other organs in the body, according to Cancer.org.
Olivia, seen in August at the Industry Dance Awards 2019 in Avalon Hollywood, also discussed her fantastic relationship with her daughter Chloe, 33, whom she raised with her first husband Matt Lattanzi and told how their relationship has become even closer since the diagnosis.
Although the disease can be controlled for many years with the right treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy to reduce tumors, it cannot be cured.
Olivia is a strong believer in the use of medical marijuana to relieve some of the pain she has experienced in fighting cancer. A route, she says, that has helped improve her quality of life.
She recently attended the Cannabis Science Conference 2019 in Portland, Oregon, to discuss her personal journey with the use of marijuana to control her pain.
CAN CANNABIS OIL CURE CANCER?
Cannabis oil is currently illegal in the UK
A mother of two claimed in February that she had cured her aggressive breast cancer by taking a drop of cannabis oil with THC every day.
Dee Mani, 44, refused chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer – which was considered the deadliest form – and instead opted for the oil, which is illegal in the UK.
Doctors gave her the complete error just five months after she chose the oil.
Despite her claims that the hair cured cancer, there is no evidence that cannabis or any of its compounds can treat cancer in humans, because research has shown that the anti-tumor effects of the drug have been in petri dishes and mice.
Dr. Kat Arney, formerly of Cancer Research UK, said that although research results are promising, cancer patients should not get their hopes.
She said earlier: & We know that cannabinoids can have different effects on cancer cells grown in the laboratory and on animal tumors.
& # 39; But there is currently no good evidence from clinical trials to show that they can treat cancer safely and effectively in patients. & # 39;
Cannabis oil – different from CBD oil because it contains THC, the compound that users have a & # 39; high & # 39; gives – is illegal under UK law.
It influences the release and uptake of "feel good" chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin.
Billy Caldwell, from Castlederg, Northern Ireland, made headlines in April when he became the first Briton to be prescribed it on the NHS.
He received permission earlier this year to use cannabis oil to treat his epilepsy.
