Actress Thandie Newton is refusing to get health jabs ahead of a movie shoot in Nigeria - because she prefers natural remedies.
The Crash star snubs traditional medicine when she falls ill and instead seeks a cure with alternative herbal potions, and she's turning to her friend Elizabeth Peyton-Jones, a naturopath, to help her as she prepares for upcoming project Half Of A Yellow Sun in Africa.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "If I get a physical ailment these days, I don't go to the doctor, I go to Elizabeth.
"For instance, I am off to Nigeria to film Half Of A Yellow Sun... and there are a lot of health issues in tropical countries, but Elizabeth has prescribed me some herbal potions."
