Aaron Rodgers attributes his most recent Success to the use of ayahuasca
An ayahuasca experience prepared the path for Aaron Rodgers to have the “best season” of his NFL career, according to the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
For his third and fourth MVP titles in 2020 and 2021, Rodgers admitted on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast that the South American plant medicine ayahuasca was a factor in his success.
Because of a shift in perspective and better mental health, the 38-year-old has had two of his best seasons to date.
In the podcast that went live on YouTube on Wednesday, Rodgers added, “I don’t think it’s a coincidence, I really don’t. I don’t really believe in coincidences at this point. It’s the universe bringing things to happen when they’re supposed to happen.”
But what exactly is a psychedelic substance, and how does it work?
Ayahuasca is what it is called.
In the brown-reddish beverage ayahuasca, the active ingredient dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, is found.
DMT is classified as a hallucinogen by the Drug Enforcement Administration and is commonly used in South American religious rites.
NLM National Center for Biotechnology Information says that Banisteriopsis caapi vine bark and Psychotria viridis bush leaves are commonly used in herbal drinks.
According to the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, common monikers include Huasca, yagé, Kamarampi, Huni, brew, daime, the tea, and la purga.
