Newton-John revealed that she takes "a lot of herbs" for her breast cancer – which she was first diagnosed with in 1992 – in addition to conventional treatments like radiation.
"There are a lot of herbs I take. And over the last 10 years, I've used cannabis,” the 72-year-old star said.
"I've also been eating vegan because my daughter (Chloe Lattanzi) was visiting me and she's a vegan. I feel very good."
Newston-John also expressed hope that she will live to see a "world beyond cancer".

"I think I've accomplished everything I dreamt of and more, and I'm so grateful for that,” the Physical hitmaker said.
“I want to be able to give back and help other people going through cancer. I don't think it can get more important than that."
The star also explained that finding different ways to treat cancer is one of the main aims of the Olivia Newton-John Foundation.
"After having lived for years with different cancers, and having surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, I thought it would be wonderful if we could find different kinds of treatments for people going through cancer."
