I want to help my clients get well

As a health professional, are you facing the limitations of traditional approaches to improving your clients’ health? 

Do you want to understand the root causes of symptoms and health issues that appear a medical mystery?  

Do you question the overuse of synthetic supplements and want to learn more about overcoming mineral imbalances to support your clients’ back to health?

In the current health paradigm, clients rarely receive care that addresses the core issues behind their chronic conditions. And yet, a band aid approach will not do!

The RCP Institute is designed to meet this need for you and your clients. Are you ready to unlearn and re-learn with the RCP?

I want to learn more for myself

Did you wake up this morning and think “why don’t I have the energy to do what I need to do today?”

Are you tired of one-size-fits-all solutions and synthetic shortcuts that never truly address the root of your health concerns? 

Have you found yourself searching for answers about your well-being yet only finding  surface-level information that leaves you wanting more? 

Are the quick fixes and synthetic supplements only scratching the surface of your health challenges – or even making things worse?

Have you been put on iron or vitamin D supplements, with no mention of copper or magnesium?

If you believe there’s more to your health than meets the eye, and you’re ready to explore a holistic and profound path to wellness, the RCP Institute might have the answers you are searching for!

I want to help others in their health journey

Have you experienced the benefits of the RCP but can’t explain it to other people?

Do you have a passion to help others find fullness in life and want to help them on their health journey?

Have you experienced the healthcare system and known that the medications and outcomes provided there are not giving long-lasting solutions to people, maybe even yourself?

You are curious about the information that society is expected to beLIEve and want to share the root cause of the issue with others?

The RCP Institute is a space where you will gain a personal understanding of the root cause of health problems, a dive into what isn’t being taught at medical schools so you can help others by sharing your personal health outcomes through the RCP with others. Backed by research an a community of Alumni you can help others.

“I entered into the RCP training with little knowledge of the protocol. The name itself attracted me-root cause. I have been on a personal and professional mission to help my patients identify the root cause of their symptoms. When I heard Morley speak about the vibrational and energetic qualities of minerals I became very curious. The structure of the course is very organized. The teachers and tutors hold incredible respect for the students and nuture their progress which is more than I can say when I completed my medical training as a nurse practitioner. “

- Elizabeth Baker

The RCP Institute is different to any other course you’ve taken as a Health Professional!

At the RCP Institute, we offer a transformative solution for both you, the health practitioner, and your clients. Our comprehensive training equips you with the knowledge and tools necessary to revolutionize your approach to health and wellness. We go beyond conventional practices and synthetic supplements to focus on the fundamental factors contributing to your clients’ health challenges.

Our program delves deep into the STOPS and STARTS from the RCP handbook, giving you an intimate understanding of the science and practical applications of key nutrients. You’ll learn to see beyond the surface and uncover the real reasons for your clients’ symptoms and disease in the body.

We emphasize the vital role of magnesium, bioavailable copper, and retinol, while challenging the conventional use of synthetic supplements like vitamin D and chewable orange vitamin C tablets. With our training, you’ll gain the ability to not only understand but also explain to your clients why traditional blood tests may provide incomplete and misleading information about their health. Additionally, we shed light on the often overlooked pathophysiology of excess unbound minerals, which can lead to chronic health issues that persist beneath the surface.

Our approach is not about diagnosing or treating specific conditions but rather empowering individuals to restore their nutrient capacity, allowing their bodies to heal naturally. It’s a paradigm shift in healing that aligns with the principles of Mother Nature, offering a profound understanding of the dynamics of health and disease.
This training equips you with the tools to provide a unique level of care and support, setting you apart with your understanding of the true underlying causes of poor health.

“I’ve taken a lot of CE (Continuous Education) over the years. The detailed information was layered in a very effective way. The concepts and the science were made very clear. Once you know all this, you can’t unknow it! Very inspiring!”

- Jennifer Tinholt

About this course

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!”

– Rachel

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.

“The depth of knowledge, and understanding gained from the research uncovered will no doubt challenge anyone who has been looking for answers to health & wellbeing. BUT it all makes total sense in a world where we live with the best medical advances but with more sick people than ever before – if that makes you think & question – then this is THE course to quench your thirst for truth.”

- Claire Sendall

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.”

– Staci

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.”

– Nadine

A message from the Founder

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.
