Mineral Depletion is a fact of life. Our soils are depleted, our lives are stressful, whether is be a hidden stress like an sinus infection, or a obvious stress like anxiety, it is there ticking away. We pass these depletion on to our children. If a mum is depleted then her baby will be born with the same if not often worse depletion. Then we have food that is fortified in minerals that we don't necessarily need like synthetic folate or iron as just two examples.
I see many people overwhelmed with 'The Root Cause Protocol' and to be honest in a nutshell it is necessary for everyone as a starting point and it is simply follow the steps. You won't regret it. Start that ASAP then continue on your journey to understand it in a deeper way. Morley Robbin's has put to much time, effort and research in this protocol and offer it willing for free.
I say this with sincerity after over twenty years of being sick, this was the starting point of my turn around and my reasoning behind starting this site. I could not believe something so simple held the answers for me, and so many I have seen start the last three years that I have been on this path.
So for those that are ready to research deeper Morley Robbin's has presented the below video, that is also in transcript. Please take the time to watch or read, and please ask away.
In the following "My Theory Of Everything" video (full transcription available here), Morley Robbin's explains how when Magnesium & Calcium are out of balance, and Copper & Iron are out of balance, it creates a "Ferrous Wheel"Â of destruction inside of the body. "It is a very important dynamic to understand how these two minerals (iron and Magnesium)relate to each other, and it turns out that over the course of the day, magnesium and iron are fighting over oxygen all day long. What is magnesium oxide? It is the brightest burning fire on the planet. The Chinese discovered that 4,000 years ago when they discovered fireworks. That is where they come from, magnesium oxide. What's the flip side? It's called iron oxide. We know it is rust, and that's what slows us down. That's what changes enzyme pathways. That's what causes the aging process that occurs inside the mitochondria to stop the production of ATP.
I hope you take the time to compete the video or read all the transcript, it is worth your time.

The ROOT CAUSE Protocol
Ceruloplasmin is the major copper-carrying protein in the blood, and in addition plays a role in iron metabolism.
STOP Hormone D- ONLY supplements (Supplemental-D KILLS Retinol Needed for Cp)
STOP Calcium Supplement! (Ca BLOCKS Mg & Iron absorption)
STOP Iron Supplements! (Fe SHUTS DOWN Copper metabolism)
STOP Ascorbic Acid (Ascorbic Acid disrupts the Copper < > Cp bond.
STOP HFCS & Synthetic Sugars (HFCS Lowers Liver Copper and Raises Liver Iron)
STOP LOW Fat Diet (Fat is needed for proper Copper absorption)
STOP Using Industrialised, Heart Healthy Omega-6 Oils! (e.g. Soybean, Corn, Canola Oils)
STOP Using products with Fluoride (toothpaste, bottle water, etc.)
STOP Taking Multi & Pre-natals (They contain the first four items above, and fluoride)
STOP Using Citrate in Foods and Supplements (e.g. CALM)
STOP Using Colloidal Silver as an Antibiotic (It lowers Copper status in the body!)
START Cod Liver Oil, CLO(1 tsp Nordic Naturals Artic or Rosita) for Retinol(animal based Vitamin A)
START Magnesium Supplements to lower ACTH & Cortisol (Dose: 10mg/kilo or 5mg/lb body weight) be mindful of the Mg cofactors: B6, Boron, Bicarbonate. Al so take adrenal cocktail at 10am and 2pm on an empty stomach to balance electrolytes. 4oz fresh orange juice, ¼ tsp of Cream of Tartar and ¼ tsp of sea salt.
START Whole food Vitamin C (Innate Response or Grown By Nature: 400-800mg/day (Key source to Copper)
START Using Mother Nature sources for B Vitamins:
- Take ½ tsp of Bee Pollen
- Take 1-2 tsp of Rice Brand (be sure to take AWAY from other foods)
- Eat 4-6oz of Beef Liver weekly
(Research shows that several B vitamins are the KEY to Cp production. Please get these as noted above)
B2 (Riboflavin) Key for Cu/Fe regulation in the liver.
B5 (Pantothenate) Supports the production of Vitamin C.
B7 (Biotin) Key for Cu/Fe regulation in the liver.
START Using Silica (Diatomaceous Earth) that stimulates an increase in Cp! (Start with 1 tsp in water at the start or end of your day, and work up to 3 tsp [1Tbs] each day)
START Boron (1-3 mg/day, or add 1Tbs borax to your Magnesium Bath) aids in synthesis of Cp, and regulates Fe. (Iron)
START Taurine (500 - 1000 mg/day) Supports liver Copper Metabolism. Taurine is a type of amino acid found throughout the body.
START Ancestral Diet, what your grandparents would eat. No middle isles at the supermarket. (HIGH Fat & Protein/LOW carb) good for Copper absorption.
START Iodine (PREREQUISITE: Mg RBC & Se RBC need to be optimal) Until then, add Iodine rich foods like kelp, seaweed, scallops, cod, eggs, cranberries, etc. to the diet.
Additional Factors to Consider regarding Ceruloplasmin (Cp):
Chlorinated water is hard on Copper & Magnesium, thus is hard on Cp production.
High dose Zinc Supplements BLOCK Copper absorption, which reduces Cp production.
Molybdenum is known to chelate Copper and BLOCK Ceruloplasmin production.
