Foxy Brown - Grier: 'Chinese Herbs Helped Me Beat Cancer'

FOXY BROWN star PAM GRIER has Chinese herbal medicine to thank for her cancer all-clear - because western doctors suggested she turn to alternatives after traditional methods to cure her failed.
The actress was diagnosed with stage four cancer in 1988 and given just months to live - but she's still going strong thanks in part to regular trips to Chinatown in Los Angeles.
During an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Thursday (03Feb11), she said, "My physician said, 'Western medicine has done all it can, I'm sending you to Chinatown. You'll meet these practitioners and you'll listen to them.'"
Grier has documented her cancer battle in her new book My Life in Three Acts.
