Cells are designed to create energy and to clear exhaust. Where the cells get into trouble is where there is less of the former, and too much of the latter. In other words, a healthy body needs to be able to create energy and clear exhaust. Period. Because a mineral, vitamin and magnesium depleted body can’t make enough energy, and it can’t clear exhaust fast enough.

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 and supplements in order to balance Magnesium, Copper, and Iron — and repair cellular dysfunction.
