Winehouse Turns To Buddhism To Battle Demons?

AMY WINEHOUSE has turned to Buddhism to try and beat her drug and alcohol addictions, according to U.K. tabloid reports.
The Back To Black singer has faced a string of health issues over the last year (07/08) and was rushed to hospital after collapsing at her house in London in July (08).
The star was also diagnosed with traces of deadly lung disease emphysema.
But Winehouse is now said to be battling her addictions by using calming Buddhist chants to help her relax and battle stress, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tell the publication, "One of her musicians introduced Amy to Buddhist chanting. She chants for ten minutes in the morning and just before she sleeps.
"Amy has also been watching the interview clip of Tina Turner on YouTube and she reckons it's already affecting her in a positive way."
Singer Tina Turner turned to Buddhism after she split from her rocker husband Ike Turner in 1975.
