Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers quarterback and current NFL Most Valuable Player, surprised a week ago by revealing that he underwent an ayahuasca treatment during his stay in Peru. This was revealed on “The Aubrey Marcus Podcast.”
The athlete revealed that his participation in said ritual helped him in the future, as his performance on the playing field grew. In the same way, he pointed out that his self-esteem increased.
Rodgers said the retirement gave him “a deep and meaningful appreciation for life” and “to love himself unconditionally.” “I really feel like that experience paved the way for me to have the best season of my career,” said the Greens field athlete Bay.
After those revelations, football fans thought Aaron would be disciplined. However, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy stated that the Green Bay Packers athlete will not be punished, as he explained to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The National Football League and the Players Union established a list of prohibited substances. In that sense, ayahuasca is not included in that list, so Rodgers is released from any accusation.
What is ayahuasca?
Ayahuasca is a psychoactive drink which originates from South America and is very popular in Peru. It is often used for religious, ritual or medicinal purposes. In addition, it is considered a powerful antidepressant that allows those who ingest it to experience a feeling of euphoria and well-being.
