Hello and welcome to the RCP Institute! This institute was born of demand. In creating the Root Cause Protocol, I met so many folks who wanted to feel better, but found that mainstream medicine didn’t work for them. As the RCP helped more and more people to feel better, they began asking for more. They felt so good that they wanted to understand the science, to deepen their own personal understanding. They were thirsty for more knowledge, and who am I to deny them?!
When you’re searching for answers and you’ve tried so many things to heal yourself, you don’t need another supplement in your pantry. You need The RCP and as the name suggests, the RCP is about getting to the root cause of your symptoms. What I’ve uncovered is that all disease is caused by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is the result of cellular dysfunction, which is caused by an imbalance of 3 key minerals in the body – magnesium, copper, and iron.
These 3 minerals form the cornerstone of the RCP institute training, so if you’re ready to go beyond mainstream medicine and understand what’s truly going on inside our bodies, how to build immunity and how to improve health, the team would love to welcome you to the RCP online training program.

Summary of headings
About the training
The RCP Institute is a 16-week online course, delivered live twice each year. The program was created by RCP Founder Morley Robbins and RCP Operations Manager Kristan Kershaw, and is delivered by our team.
The course consists of a combination of real-time virtual classes, pre-recorded materials, small group tutorials and case studies. As the program progresses, you’ll participate in quizzes, tutorials and case studies to integrate the content and consolidate your understanding. Live classes are delivered in an online meeting format so you can attend from anywhere in the world using your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Upon successful completion, students graduate as RCP Consultants which allows them to then work with clients using the knowledge gained during the course, should they wish. Some folks simply do the training for their own personal benefit, or for their family, and that’s perfectly acceptable too!
What you’ll learn
The course is designed to teach you to confidently explain why we must forget about taking vitamin D, ditch those chewable orange vitamin C tablets and put synthetic supplements and vitamins into the trash.
Upon completion of the training, you will have an intimate knowledge of the STOPS and STARTS from the RCP handbook, a deeper understanding of the science as well as the clinical significance of key nutrients. You’ll go beyond what they’re learning in medical school and uncover the real reason for symptoms and disease in the body. You’ll learn about the importance of magnesium, bioavailable copper and retinol to regulate metabolic balance. The training will allow you to understand and explain to others why the blood test your GP uses to tell you that you’re low in iron is completely unfounded. You’ll understand the role, physiology, as well as the much-overlooked pathophysiology of excess unbound iron (that gets stuck in the tissue, and does not appear in the blood).
“This training far exceeded my expectations! I now have the knowledge and confidence to share this information with my family and friends. For me personally, the RCP has been life-changing – and I wanted to be able to help others find the truth and the correct path as well!”
For those of you who love details, we also explore:
- The chemical & metabolic source of unbound copper, what it really represents and how it is improperly addressed by most practitioners
- The primal need to manage the oxygen molecule in the human body
- How and why oxygen is the source of our energy and the source of our exhaust
- How bioavailable copper has the sole ability to activate oxygen to make energy
- How bioavailable copper deactivates oxidants to neutralize exhaust
- Analyzing Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) and blood test results
Students who complete this course experience a complete transformation of understanding how periods of acute and chronic stress result in mineral dysregulation, which then causes metabolic dysfunction that causes enzymes to not work properly, which then causes symptoms to appear. There is no “medical disease,” per se, simply stress-induced metabolic dysfunction. Understanding these dynamics and seeing them in action via the recorded consults alters our perception of the existence of disease.
RCP Consultants are not being trained to “diagnose or treat any conditions”. We are here to empower the individual to restore nutrient capacity so their body can heal itself. It is a very different paradigm of healing that supports our natural design and the tenets of Mother Nature.
Why we’re different
So much of what we’ve been told is misleading. Our health experts aren’t being taught what’s really going on inside our bodies, and that’s concerning! Let us take you on a journey to peek behind the curtain of why the RCP has helped so many folks just like Staci.
“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.”
This approach to wellness, if you welcome it with an open mind, will change your entire perspective.
Who is this course for?
The course welcomes folks from all walks of life. We’ve had all of the following train with us:
- Non-professionals looking into health coaching
- Healthcare professionals with existing credentials
- Non-professionals who want to use the training for personal use
We’ve had concerned parents wanting to implement RCP within their own family and medical doctors looking to implement RCP across their entire patient population and just about everything in between, from all over the world!
The key requirement is that you have a passion for learning and a drive to help others.
Being an online course, the cohort of students is global. This program and all supporting materials are in English. We make a considered effort to provide videos that are accompanied by written transcripts and other supporting learning materials.
“As a health professional, the RCP training course has given me a whole new perspective on achieving optimum health. It involved quite a bit of “unlearning” what I had been taught in my previous training, and has rejuvenated my enthusiasm for helping people to get well. We all know that vitamins and minerals are important in our diet, but most people have no idea the extent to which the body MUST have these nutrients, and in proper balance, in order for metabolic pathways to run properly and efficiently.”
What is the time commitment?
To get the most out of this training, we recommend you allow for the following as a minimum:
- Up to 2 hours of pre-recorded classes each week
- 2.5 hours of live sessions (or recordings)
- A 75 min pre-recorded consult each week
- Up to 1.5 hours each week for other materials and quizzes
- 1 to 1.5 hour weekly tutorial with an RCPC tutor
As with anything, the more you put into it, the more you’ll gain from it. This training is no exception. As everyone learns and consumes information at different speeds, the total time commitment varies from student to student.
