Chronic Hepatitis

Naomi Judd, 55 - mother of country singer Wynonna, 37, and actress Ashley, 33 - was diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C, a liver infection, in 1990. She endured futile treatments before Dr. Bruce Bacon of St. Louis University began alfa-interferon injections. Judd has used yoga, acupuncture and meditation, too. Considered "cured," she's now a motivational speaker. Judd also has resumed singing, put out a CD with Wynonna and appeared in Ashley's film Someone Like You.
