An autoimmune disease left me unable to see, hear and walk “. She revealed it Ashton Kutcher44, in an episode of the TV program Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge which will air next Monday on National Geographic but to which Access Hollywood got a sneak peek. “Two years ago,” says the actor, “I have had a very rare form of vasculitis“. An autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls and can affect several organs. In Ashton’s case, “it had knocked out my sight, my hearing, my whole balance. I didn’t know if I would ever go back to seeing, hearing, walking. It took me a year to recover my senses“. The actor admitted to having lived a terrifying period: “I’m lucky to be alive ». But now that has recovered his health in full he learned to look at life with different eyes. After such an experience she began to “navigate above problems instead of living below them.” And life today seems “more fun” to him.
It is not the first time that Kutcher has faced serious health problems. Last year his wife Mila Kuniswith whom she had two children ( Wyatt Isabelle and DimitriAge 7 and 5) revealed that Ashton in 2013 ended up in hospital twice for pancreatitis. It happened when the biopic about Steve Jobswho died of pancreatic cancer in 2011. Jobs, in the last years of his life, to cope with cancer had revolutionized his diet and he ate only fruit. Ashton, to get into his shoes as much as possible, had made up his mind to imitate him. So his diet, as Mila said, was mainly made up of fruit and carrot juice: “At some point he had come to eat only grapes. He was a real fool. We ended up in the hospital twice with pancreatitis! ‘
