Welcome! This is your dashboard for all things Root Cause Protocol (RCP123.org):
If you, or someone you love, is suffering from Autoimmune conditions such as Lyme, Hashimoto's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, PCOS, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, etc. then please continue reading...
The scientific, peer-reviewed literature from around the world -- though not well known in conventional medical circles -- is actually quite clear…
Autoimmune issues involve cellular dysfunction of some sort, and cellular dysfunction is caused by an imbalance of 3 key minerals:
The Root Cause Protocol 101 Video Series explains these concepts in depth, and how you can take control of your health by repairing this crucial mineral imbalance.
Photosynthesis (in plants) is the process of splitting water (H20) into Hydrogen & Oxygen to create energy/ATP in order for the plant to live.
Humans do the opposite: In the body, we combine Oxygen & Hydrogen to make water (H20) in order to create energy/ATP.
But that process requires Copper, and the Copper must be “bioavailable” --or, “in a usable form” -- because bioavailable Copper ensures that Iron has “chaperones” to escort it throughout the body.
Otherwise, Iron runs around like a 4-year old with a hammer wreaking havoc inside your cells…
So... how do you increase bioavailable Copper?
By following the steps of The Root Cause Protocol.
Stated slightly more scientifically: Copper makes H20 and releases ADP (in Complex IV of the Electron Transport Chain of the Mitochondria), which is a pre-cursor of energy; then ADP joins up with Magnesium (in Complex V) to create Mg-ATP, the active chemical of energy that the cells recognize and use.
Bottom line: The cells are designed to create energy and to clear exhaust.
A mineral depleted body doesn't have the resources it needs to make enough energy, and it can't clear exhaust fast enough.
And if you don’t resolve the root cause, your symptoms will never be fully resolved… and you’ll probably feel “exhausted” all the time.
Therefore, the steps of The Root Cause Protocol -- the steps for reversing Autoimmune conditions like Lyme, Hashimoto’s, Fibromyalgia, etc. -- are all about learning to feed your body the correct nutrients in order to balance Magnesium, Copper, and Iron -- and repair cellular dysfunction.
"Being on the Root Cause Protocol for just over 3 months has completely changed my life. i feel so good, sleep so well, have energy that i've not known since high school and am more focused, yet relaxed, than ever in my life - i sometimes feel bionic. i will turn 46 years old on friday. i feel 25. it is blowing my mind.” - Stacy La Point

The Root Cause Protocol was created by Morley Robbins, MBA, CHC.
Morley discovered the steps of the RCP over the course of 9 years by methodically digging through scientific, peer-reviewed literature from around the world (dating back to 1948) in search of answering the question, "What causes cellular dysfunction / "oxidative stress" / inflammation?"
In 2017, Morley met Ben Edwards, MD. After a magical discussion with Morley, Dr. Ben began to implement The RCP in his own practice with his patients and began to see amazing results.
The two had a strong desire to dig deeper into Morley's findings via a conversation between Physician and Researcher.
The Root Cause Protocol 101 Video Series is the result of that collaboration.
Here's a list of resources to help you get started...
"I went to the doctor today and couldn't contain my excitement.
I've had x-rays, ultrasounds and enough blood tests to fill an entire person trying to get to the bottom of what the hell is wrong with me.
But after discovering the Root Cause Protocol, I've been focusing on getting my magnesium intake up, and purging unbound iron.
The swelling in my feet is gone, my leg & calf cramps are gone, my restless leg syndrome is gone, my insomnia and heart palpitations are gone. My anxiety is practically gone, I have so much more energy.
I feel 10 years younger. I'm not waking up fatigued. I feel incredible, I'm riding my horse again and I'm going to work happy!!
My doctor typed furiously as I spoke, and then sat there stunned with a big grin on her face, and told me how happy she was for me."
