Welcome to Wellness!


The next round of classes begin in 2021!

The RCP Institute (previously named the Copernican Institute) is a guided journey to better health, led by Morley Robbins, creator of the Root Cause Protocol.


In this 14 week course, you will:

  • Learn the science behind the Root Cause Protocol.
  • Learn how to utilize Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA), blood test results, and the client intake form.
  • Analyze real-world case studies.


Upon completion of this course, students will have learned and mastered the following:

  • An intimate knowledge of why the STOPS and STARTS are designed the way they are.
  • An understanding of the science and clinical significance of a select, few nutrients: magnesium, bioavailable copper & retinol to regulate metabolic balance.
  • A deep understanding of the roles, physiology, as well as the much-over-looked pathophysiology of excess unbound Iron (that gets stuck in the tissue, and does not appear in the blood).
  • An understanding of the chemical & metabolic source of unbound Copper, what it really represents and how it is improperly addressed by most practitioners.
  • A deeper understanding of the primal need to manage the oxygen molecule in the human body. Oxygen is the source of our energy and it is the source of our exhaust.

  • Bioavailable copper, as you will learn, has the sole ability to activate oxygen to make energy, and to deactivate oxidants to neutralize exhaust. This is the “First Principle” of Life on Planet Earth, and serves as the cornerstone of the RCP teachings…

Beyond that, the 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.


A key emphasis of the training for the Students is to learn to ask one critical question at the outset of the Consult:


When did your symptoms begin, and what stressors were you experiencing at that time?


Understanding the answer(s) to this question, and learning the Mosaic of Stress that has transformed the client, then enables the RCP Consultant to have a deeper and more engaging relationship with their client, and vice versa.


Please know, 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.


That said, please rest assured that we will ensure that you have a working knowledge of the mineral testing results gained by Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) and "the full monty" iron panel of blood markers. Know, however, that these tests are designed as educational aides for the client to better understand the how and where their lifetime of stress has affected their mineral status and dynamics.


There is a significant emphasis throughout this course to learn to apply the knowledge, to examine and understand case studies, and to learn how we fit within it all.

    Who should attend?

    The course is applicable to healthcare professionals with existing credentials, as well as non-professionals who are looking to enter the health coaching arena.


    In previous years we’ve had medical doctors looking to implement RCP across their entire patient population, concerned parents wanting to implement RCP within their own family, 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.



    When does training begin?

    The course has diverse pre-recorded videos that can be accessed immediately upon sign up plus 14 weeks of “live” online sessions. We have two “study” weeks in between too, so a total length of 16 weeks from the start date.


    Next LIVE classes for Group 13 begin in 2021. You will be able to sign up and start reviewing materials and starting your studies from October 2020.


    Live classes will be delivered in an online meeting format so you can attend from anywhere in the world using your computer, tablet, or smart phone. The pre recorded videos are often accompanied by written transcripts and other supporting learning materials.


    If you would like to register an interest to join us for this training, please let us know here or sign up using the “I'm Ready!” buttons.
