Suzanne Somers talks aging, breast cancer, hormone replacement

Suzanne Somers played sexy Chrissy Snow in the hit sitcom "Three's Company" 35 years ago.

Now, she has just finished writing her 23rd book entitled, “Bombshell: Explosive Medical Secrets That Will Redefine Aging."

On Tuesday night, she sat down with HLN’s Dr. Drew to discuss the book and her life, beginning with her bout with breast cancer that she publicly announced in 2001.

“It forced me to say, ‘What have I been doing in my life to play host to this disease?’” Somers said. “As a result of that, I changed my life. I decided I would eat as though my life depended upon it. I changed my sleeping habits. I started managing my stress [and] eliminating toxins -- the things that turn off the cancer protective genetic switches.”

Dr Drew asked her how she thought cancer protective genetic switches can be turned off.

She answered, “By toxins -- eating food sprayed by poison -- not sleeping -- not managing stress and not having balanced hormones, which [I think] is very interesting. Innately, that's what I did 11 years ago. I just focused on: ‘I will never get cancer again if I do these things for my body.’”

Somers continues her conversation with Dr. Drew on aging, hormone replacement therapy and more in the video clip above.
