Model and actress, Pamela Anderson, best known for her role in Baywatch, was infected with hepatitis C in 2002 and credits homeopathic treatment with helping to keep her in good health today.
She made her illness public in a media statement, saying she contracted the serious liver disease from sharing a tattoo needle with her ex-husband, rock musician Tommy Lee.
On first sharing the news, she was very worried and even predicted that she would die from the disease within a decade. But then she started seeing a homeopath doctor in Los Angeles. Her health improved greatly and her optimism returned: “It was very, very frightening in the beginning and sapping my strength,” she told a reporter in 2004. “But now I am very healthy. My liver was just tested and I have stayed exactly the same or slightly improved over the last few years. I feel great. I’m convinced my homeopathic remedy is keeping me strong.
Her homeopath, Wendy Hewland, told Us Weekly magazine that she “made a signal remedy specifically for Pam” that Anderson is using as an alternative form of medicine.
