Ashton Kutcher Joins Bear Grylls In The Costa Rican Jungles As He Gets Candid About His Battle With Vasculitis

Ashton Kutcher’s appearance on the popular National Geographic survivalist show aired early this week. The episode took Kutcher on a journey with Bear Grylls into the jungles of Costa Rica while Kutcher opened up about his own health journey.

“Like two years ago, I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis,” the That 70s Show alum tells the National Geographic reality-TV host. During the discussion, Kutcher notes that this rare form of the autoimmune affliction “knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium.”

“It took me like a year to build it all back up,” the actor continues.

“You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone,” Kutcher adds.

“Until you go, ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again,” he relates.

“I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again,” he adds. “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.'”

Kutcher goes on to say that he knows he’s “lucky to be alive,” adding that he has turned the scare into a learning experience.

“The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right?” Kutcher relates in the episode. “You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them.”
