NFL star Aaron Rodgers peeved that ‘society’ won’t promote alternate COVID-19 treatments

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was back on “The Pat McAfee Show” and raged at “society” as well as the NFL for not fostering an environment where treatments and care options aside from vaccines can be discussed and used.

“The one frustration that I have in all of this is that throughout this entire time there hasn’t been real conversation around health,” Rodgers vented “Like how to be healthier as far as your diet and vitamins and exercise, but the other thing that hasn’t been talked about is treatments.”

There were those who mocked Rodgers for getting in touch with controversial podcast host Joe Rogan to discuss the tips and tricks he used to mitigate his COVID-19 symptoms after he tested positive. Rogan infamously used a non-traditional method of treatment for his infection, and was roundly bashed for it in the mainstream media, including CNN.

“I talked to a lot of friends who had Covid including Joe (Rogan) and figured out a protocol that I had ready in case I got Covid,” the quarterback revealed. “That basically took my symptoms from what they were to non-existence in 36 hours.”

At one point during the interview, Rodgers expressed his frustration that treatment methods such as monoclonal antibodies and other alternative healthcare practices aren’t being legitimately discussed at the NFL or really anywhere else in society. It appears that only the three major vaccines are being regarded as acceptable.

“I don’t understand why society and the NFL hasn’t talked about legitimate treatment options and monoclonal antibodies is one of them,” he said. “If you don’t want to do any of that, at least can there be conversations about treatments that can help our guys, if they have major symptoms, to recover quicker.”

While it might be easy to write off Rodgers’ suggestions as one of a non-medical professional who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, he is not the only one who is saying these things.

Fox News medical analyst Dr. Marty Makary also said that more attention should be placed on therapeutics.

“Fox News @ Night” host Shannon Bream asked Dr. Makary whether the White House was “engaged” on the matter of alternative therapies and treatments for infected patients.

“That was a big disappointment, Shannon. You know we’re dealing with a highly transmissible respiratory pathogen that is basically seeded everywhere in the country,” he explained. “It is nearly impossible to contain it. We have to bring attention to early treatment.” Dr. Makary then went on to list some trial medications that have shown promise in the early battle against COVID, and mentioned again that “we need to talk more about therapeutics.”
