This week Newton-John said she is “pain-free” and progressing well in a TV interview with Australia’s Sunrise.
“I’m feeling well. In fact, I just finished a tour on the weekend, so I’ve been working again,” Newton-John said. “And I have no pain and life is wonderful.”
She announced plans of returning to the down-under to celebrate the holidays with her family. Though she’s been out publicly as of late, she revealed that the start of the new year would cause her to slow down for a while.
“I’m going to take a couple of months off in the beginning of the year, and I have a few concerts planned for March,” she said. “But after that, I’m not quite sure what I’m doing, but I’m kind of looking at it, but with a little bit more time off in between.”
In addition she shared about her holistic approach to healing. Newton-John’s husband John Easterling is the founder of the Amazon Herb Company and served as part of the inspiration to include cannabis in her treatments. In addition, the singer’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi is a noted cannabis advocate and entrepreneur. She recently opened her own marijuana farm in Oregon with her husband this year.
