Anyone from the ‘80s who loves listening to music is familiar with Olivia Newton-John. In case you’re not familiar with the name, Olivia Newton-John is a British singer-slash-actress who is also an activist and a motivational speaker for cancer survivors. Life of Olivia Newton-John was not easy after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in the ‘90s. At that time, the medicine industry was at a point where treating cancer would be challenging.
The opioids and other medical procedures to treat cancer weren’t working for Olivia Newton-John. She suffered from unbearable pain and was put on estrogen blockers to stop cancer from spreading, but it was too much for her to handle. Her body couldn’t handle the estrogen blockers, and she had to turn it down because it had a very negative impact on her mental health and quality of life. In such difficult times, Olivia turned to Cannabis to help ease the symptoms, and according to her, it was the best decision of her life.
Cannabis reduced the anxiety and stress levels and was able to improve her quality of life significantly. Luckily, Olivia’s husband, John Easterling, a CEO at Amazon Herb Company, had experience with Cannabis and was a great help to her. Olivia often had to use Cannabis to treat the unbearable pain that comes with cancer. There was a time in her life where she was extremely depressed from taking a bunch of opioids. At that time, Cannabis worked like a charm for her and made things significantly more manageable for her.
After nine months of chemotherapy and mastectomy (breast removal surgery), Olivia was cleared of cancer, but the worst was yet to come. In 2013, Olivia was re-diagnosed with breast cancer for the 2nd time, and her battle with cancer continues. In the most recent interview, Olivia said that medicinal Cannabis was a huge part of her recovery and hemp-derived tincture extracted by her husband, were like a pain-killer and was nothing less than a miracle for her.
Olivia was asked if tincture were able to help with her because the government says that it’s just a marketing ploy, and it doesn’t do anything. Her reply was pretty straightforward; she said that I’m living proof that tinctures works, and I can’t even begin to explain how these cannabis tinctures have helped me with managing my pain and other symptoms. She also mentioned Israel’s study on Cancer-Cannabis, which backed her claim.
Olivia Newton-John is living the best of her life with stage-four cancer, which has spread in her body, but she is still very motivated to be cancer-free. Throughout her treatment, she used many cannabis-derivates and found all the substances to be beneficial for her health. Cancer is an illness that can significantly diminish life’s quality, but Olivia stayed very strong all these years and fought with cancer like a courageous woman.
That’s all, folks!
