Country veteran Naomi Judd has credited meditation with helping her overcome the potentially fatal hepatitis C virus after doctors declared in 1990 that she only had three years to live. The Love Can Build a Bridge hitmaker was forced to retire from The Judds, the duo she formed with daughter Wynonna, in 1991 after she was diagnosed with the chronic liver disease. She says, "Three stinking years (to live). That was 1990... We're at the height of out career... and then bam! I am incredibly sick... couldn't brush my teeth, couldn't change my nightgown and... the big doctors told me I had three years to live." The shocking news prompted Judd to adopt a more holistic lifestyle. She began meditating and spending time with a new circle of friends she made at self-healing sessions, and she is convinced the healthy change helped her to beat the disease. The 68 year old, who has since resumed her music career, tells U.S. talk show host Katie Couric, "I just intuited that I was not gonna die... I started hanging out with them and yes, I've seen Dolly (Parton) naked, and I have Taylor Swift's phone number, but these are my new friends... They saved me... "I am a medically documented miracle. In 1995 I was cured of the hep C (sic) virus."
