(starpulse.com ) - Pam Anderson is making strong progress in her battle against Hepatitis C - her doctor has declared her fitter and healthier at 40 than she's ever been in her life.
In 2003, Anderson claimed she was not expected to live for more than 10 or 15 years after contracting the disease from ex-husband Tommy Lee - but last October the former Baywatch star announced her determination to defy all odds and cure the virus completely.
And now the actress is in the best health of her life, she is convinced she has finally managed to stave off the illness.
Speaking to Larry King on Friday, Anderson said, "I'm doing really good. Actually, I just went to my doctor, Dr. Huizenga. He took all my blood work and went through all my tests. And I hadn't really been to him in a year-and-a-half. And he said he's never seen me healthier. That, he said, it's a miracle. You know, I don't really work out a lot. I walk and play sports with my kids. But he says, 'You're in the best shape I've ever seen you in. You're 40 years old and your liver is in great shape, all your blood work came back really well, low cholesterol.'"
Anderson went on to credit her all-natural lifestyle for her good health: "I'm... treating it homeopathically... But I'm doing really what he (the doctor) told me... He thinks that me being vegetarian really helps me staying in such good shape."
