Box Office Martial Arts Star Jet Li Sickness Has SHOCKED Many!

The legendary actor/director, Jet Li is suffering from hyperthyroidism as well as heart and spinal conditions.

I’ve heard that Jet Li was getting ready for a new movie and was looking the part and I’ve heard he rejected science-based medicine for Chinese shamanism. I’m a big fan, and he could’ve maintained his health if he took his hormones if that was the case.

Either way, Li doesn’t look healthy, and I am praying for him.

Jet Li has spent over three decades delivering some of the most epic martial arts movies ever. He became a part of hip-hop culture after he starred in two movies alongside DMX, and one with AaliyahRome Must Die and Cradle 2 the Grave are classics, but the legendary martial artist has fans in shock after seeing a recent picture of him.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jet Li revealed in 2013 that he has been living with hyperthyroidism as well as a heart condition. While Li is 55 years old, the picture that was taken of him traveling to Tibet makes him look like a seventy or eighty-year-old man.

According to Li back in 2013, his doctor stated he could, “either continue making [action] films or spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.” Li has stepped away from acting since then, and instead spends his time working with his charity. The renown martial artist and actor began training in Wushu, a full-contact martial arts sport, at the age of eight. He retired from the sport eleven years later and began his acting career, starring in films such as The Forbidden Kingdom, Fearless, The One, Kiss of The Dragon, and Black Mask.

This photo is shocking. My first reaction when I saw the picture was “when did Jet Li turn 90?” Well, this is a damn shame. Jet Li throughout his life and career has shown nothing but nobility and class. I know he will show the world how to face hyperthyroidism with honor, dignity, and bravery.

You are still the One.
