About My Guest

My guest for this episode is Morley Robbins. Morley Robbins (aka. “Magnesium Man”) is the founder of the Magnesium Advocacy Group, and the creator of The Root Cause Protocol. Morley had been a hospital executive and consultant for 32 years when, several years ago, he developed a condition called “frozen shoulder.” His family doctor quickly recommended surgery as the only hope for Morley if he wanted to be able to lift his right hand above his waist ever again. Friends who owned a health food store intervened and encouraged Morley to try chiropractic care. His initial response: “Thanks guys, but I don’t do witchcraft.” Several months later, the pain was wearing on him, and his friends insisted. It only took a couple weeks of “light touch chiropractic care” (Network Spinal Analysis) before his shoulder had full range of motion once again. The experience was so life-changing for Morley, he questioned everything he knew — or thought he knew — about healing. He then left the world of hospital administration and became a Wellness Coach. Today, Morley views it as his life’s work to push back the tides of nutritional insanity in the day-to-day lives of inhabitants of Planet Earth!
